Since someone doofus removed my text, this is Steve Irwin and Bindi how we remembered them as children. This is Bindi now in 2013. When Steve passed away, he left behind a wife and daughter that he had loved very much. Bindi followed in her father’s footsteps and went right no to loving animals. She even had her own t.v. show called Bindi the Jungle Girl. I posted this because I think that Steve would have been way proud of her. This is a message to remember to love the animals of the world like Bindi and Steve. <3
11. The Redwall series by Brian Jacques
I think technically these are children’s books, not YA, but it’s hard to draw a clear line between the two categories and these were such a huge part of both my childhood and my early young adulthood, even as recently as 2009 when Brian Jacques did a book signing less than an hour from where I live and I couldn’t go because I had to babysit and yes, I am still very, very bitter.
Anyway, it’s been years since I actually read one, so I picked covers for ones I remember liking and ones with nice art, and I tried to get some decent variety of animals up there. Martin and his sword are on there twice though… oh well.

Thank you, Netflix, for reminding me that this song exists.
The worst I am seeing with the Babblr thing right now is that Tumblr disables the Dashboard shortcuts when it’s in use.
what a virus guys what a virus…..
Babblr, a new third-party chat client had people eagerly signing up. And now people are eagerly declaring it a scam. I am not here to clear that up, but I am here to offer more information for you to draw your own conclusions. It could still be a scam, sure. It could also not be. You make the call.
- Babblr is a new site. Its reputation is unknown. Hence the scam adviser site pointing this out. This does not say it is a scam. It does not say it isn’t. It says it is UNKNOWN.
- Babblr is a third party client. So is Missing E. Tumblr, so far as I know, does not approve of Missing E, either. Yet everyone uses it to no ill effect. Tumblr does not like third-party clients. It should be obvious why.
- Babblr is being created by three Sevenly.org creators. Brandon Sowers is one of them. Sevenly.org has a high trust rating of 100% on the same website that declares Babblr as unknown.
- Five different tech sites are reviewing Babblr as legit: 1 2 3 4 5
Conclusion: I’m not saying not to be wary or instantly trust these people. This could still be a very well-thought out, if extremely slow-acting, scam. To be careful, I unsubscribed from their list, and am changing passwords. However, what I am saying is that it might be too early to jump the gun, and this could be widespread panic over a chat equivalent to Missing E. If you signed up for it, do not panic. This could be legit. But it could also not be legit. Don’t download anything without checking it out. Maybe let others investigate this more, or investigate it yourself. Keep your eyes peeled. Always be careful. But also don’t panic just because Tumblr said it’s fishy. Of course it is to them. It’s a third-party client. And they don’t like Missing E, either.
So far, I’ve been only able to find one article on if it’s a virus or not on here
And it says no.
Remember they’re doing a public livestream meaning a lot of people are seeing this and have evidence of what they say and if they were planning to scam people this way, then they are fucked. Also remember that these guys are trying to start something for themselves and get some success out of their hard work, but of course there will always be people out there willing to prevent that by spreading rumors and shit.
Also, if you really want to get info, let’s stop depending on tumblr for “Facts” about everything and look outside of it for evidence/clues ourselves
So maybe I jumped the bandwagon on that one early, but I’ve seen this stuff actually cause issues before and didn’t want anyone to get saddled with a bad lot. In short, Babblr IS indeed safe; I’m running it on another (sandbox’d) account now to test it.
Panel of Babylonian lion
Neo-Babylonian, 600 - 550 BC.
The most important road in the city of Babylon was the processional way leading to the ‘the House of the New Year’s Festival’, the Gate to that building is called the Ishtar Gate. Leading up to that gates are reliefs of lions, the animal of the goddess Ishtar, to protect the street.
