Israel and Hamas

In light of recent events in Israel I wanted to share some valuable resources. They come from the website www.standwithus.com.

Cubits, Curtains, Sockets and the Mercy Seat

Do you ever sit down and open a set of architects drawings and read them for enjoyment? Have you have opened the local phone directory and started reading the names to relax? No. Neither have I.
