Things November: Nov. 9, 2010

Here are a few little nuggets I gathered for today. Enjoy!

Felix the Cat!
The Wonderful, Wonderful Cat!
In 1919, this amazing little kitty first appeared in a series of film shorts called “Feline Follies”. I can’t tell you how many afternoons I spent after school having a snack and watching this cartoon! Ahhh, good memories! He must be why I love black cats so much!

The Wall Came Tumblin', Tumblin
On this day in 1989, the Berlin Wall was opened. Built in 1961, it stood as a stark symbol of the Cold War. Subsequently, the tearing down of the wall has come to represent the collapse of Communism in East Europe.

Talk about ironic…
In 1998, Florida was hit by ten tornadoes while celebrating Hazardous Weather Awareness Week.



Beautiful and frightening all at once!

Doris! We're so thrilled to have you be our featured friend today on Seeds of Faith!

I totally love the bluebonnets on your blog! It really makes me miss Texas - especially Austin!!! I lived there from 1993 to 1999 and then again for a year in 2002. Maybe someday God will let me come back! LOL!

Have a great day with iFellowship!

your sis in the faith,

I didn't realize that yesterday was the opening of the wall. Amazing thing, that was.

Stopped over from iFellowship. Have a great day!

@Leanne - I am really having a lot of fun doing the research to come up with these little tidbits. I may have to do during some of the other months of the year, just not to this extent.

@Penny - WOW! I am humbled and honored to be featured on iFellowship! I have really enjoyed the time I've been spending over there lately. If you ever do make it back to Austin, you'll have to let me know - would love to meet you!

@Alise - Thank you so much for stopping by! It's amazing all the things you can find out about each day in history! I don't even really LIKE history that much, but this makes it a bit more interesting. ;-)

@Ashley - I grew up in Dallas, and moved to Austin about 15 years ago and love it - don't see myself leaving, but if I did I would go to AZ haha! I have family in Phoenix! Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll be running over there to your little spot on the web this evening when I get home!
