Dove Update.... Da Vinci Code.... SPRING

Something is wrong with Blog Spot lately - this is my sixth attempt at posting a blog entry, so here goes again.... hope it works this time.

So far all is well with the dove family. BABIES have arrived, we don't know if one or two, but Rick and I have both seen one. YAYYYYYYY! We witnessed the changing of the guards where the male flew in and relieved the female sitting on the nest so she could get a drink out of the bird bath. Pretty cool dad, no? We also see him grooming her and sitting on the nest beside her. I didn't know these things were so interesting! My neighbor told me they mate for life and these two sure look like a loving couple.

Are you eagerly awaiting the Da Vinci Code movie with Tom Hanks? We are EAGER! The whole crew is going to see it together at the movie theatre - no PPV this time. We read the book and we think it is an amazingly GREAT book! Our copy was passed around so much it looks like an old book now, but that's good. Books were meant to be shared. Da Vinci was an amazing painter and when you look at some of the very odd (bordering on down right weird) portions of the painting, ya gotta think that there is some symbolism going on there. He didn't make mistakes. For instance, look at the hand on Magdalene's chest... the fingers are 2 if not 3 times as long as a normal finger. Also, to be sure, it is definitely a woman sitting next to Jesus and not a man, i.e. Dan Brown's theory that one of the disciples(sp) was a woman. Have you read it yet? What do you think? If you'd like to see Da Vinci's Last supper painting just Google Da Vinci Last Supper and you'll see many many versions and that it's definitely a woman.
