Our weather is also going through a change. Looks like cold is on it's way. Stayed in the 30's today and no rain. Hurray!
Snow level is dropping though. Wonder if we will have a white Christmas. Smiling

I can see a big moisture pack off the Gulf Stream heading towards us. Maybe by 25th Dec we might get snow. You all also have some remnants from the Russian white out coming towards you. Shrug! Climate is changing very fast. The climate people seem to have calculated the carbon footprint of virtually every thing but have they been honest and calculated what all this ordnance being thrown around is doing? Not good.
Regards,
Arif.
Lynn, that Arif is pronounced "Ar" and "if" separate and not "Ar" "eeef". "if" comes out as the normal if. "Ar" comes out as a rolling r. I suppose time to write Arif.

I wonder if it is the same way it is pronounced in Lebanese? If so it's not a problem for me to say Arif. Hurray!

Yes, it is the same way. My eldest daughters name is Maryam which has been changed to Miriam or sometimes Mary. Any way they all point in the same direction. Second daughters name is Fatima which gets changed to Fatty? I think Lynn you can see the problem there. Third daughters name is Amna which gets changed to Amina, no problem same direction.
The three names must be telling some thing about me. Glare
Regards,
Arif.

I agree I'm not sure about Amina but I think both other names represent peace and compassion and loving kindness - all of which sound like very nice qualities, in a name and in a person! (my sister has a cat named Amina - I hope that's not insulting Sad They liked the name Hilarious! )
Peace
Cheers!

These are classical names and yes they all have meanings. Arif also means some thing in English when you find out I will tell you the correct meaning and no I don't mind if you want to name your cat or dog any of the above. We are a bit more careful.
Regards,
Arif.

Lynn. ???? You are good, even better then I am. I agree marifa shuts me up. Hilarious!
Reading the morning paper, wondering why war has been declared on innocent kids. Sad Is all this due to better media coverage or advancement of technology?

Arif - more reasons to act in kindness, so we can help counter some of the negativity! (glad you're not bothered by Amina the cat! When I visited greece there were lots of animals there with english names - jimmy, and gregory and sally!) Hilarious!
Cheers!

Greg, these classical names do not belong to any one. These names have meaning in Abraham'ical philosophy and mispronouncing them lends them a completely different meaning. Also taking the above philosophy into consideration it is up to each individual which animal he want's to lend these names to. Lynn Angel is grinning but she can better explain what I am trying to put across. Any way, no negativity, no comments. Just some thing to meditate upon, keeping each individuals leaning in mind.
If I give my eldest daughters name to some vile animal, I think most of you will be after me with a great big stick. Whistling
Regards,
Arif.

You don't have a dog or cat Arif?
Both Petrie and Nikki are Certified Therapy Dogs. They work with special needs children, helping them to read, or get through something very traumatic. Petrie also teaches them about how to deal with physical handicaps. Smiling

Names.

I have always had rescued animals and usually I wait a few days before naming them. My two cats are Daisy and Jazz. Daisy bounced though a garden of daisies to get from a violent man to me; she was only about 5 or 6 weeks old so that's how she got her name. She was a tiny stray and the man was going to get rid of her.

Jazz was tiny too, but sauntered when he walked, like a little lion. Then suddenly he would leap straight up into the air and when he landed he'd run as if from demons through the house, a streak of orange light. Then he'd saunter again, elegant and kingly. Sort of like the sound of Jazz music. At the same time I'd watched the movie 'The Secondhand Lion' for probably the hundredth time and the old lion in it was named Jasmine, but Jasmine was a girl. So my kitten became Jazz, both for the rhythm of the music and for the movie. I still love that movie.

I studied French for years, long time ago, but I can still roll my 'r' sounds. Ar-r-rif!!

Chilly here, in the 50s.

Sharon, I loved reading how your kittens came by their names. Great choices.
I grew up in a hispanic town in S. Calif, so learned as a child to roll my 'r's.

We are now into the low 30'sF and even got a little snow in the hills.
