:) How exciting! The sister's visit I mean, not the sermon.

What's the reading, do you base your sermon around that, or topical events, or both? We can help give you ideas.

This may seem off topic, but it's a hybrid topic. :roll::lol:



It's the calming of the storm (not the walking on the water one...)


(I have made some progress now - but all ideas welcome!)


thanks Sheila!

I thought this might interest or amuse some of you.

These are all hybrid animals,some are cute,some are ugly but they are all really interesting (I think 8) )

there are some others aswell - presumably outside their top ten..


there's the geep (goat/sheep)



and there's the peacchick (hen/peacock)



the beefallo (bison/cow)



and the rather sad-looking red/grey kangaroo



oh - and don't forget the scary-looking human/chimpanzee



or the very scary monkey/warthog

A cross between a Labrador and giant Poodle, which is just inches away from beign recognised as a seperate breed of dog. Very common in Australia used for herding work. Apparently they have all the best characteristics of both breeds.

I meet one on my walk most mornings and he's such a happy chappie (the dog)...

what a gorgeous looking dog...


chief characteristic of labrador: stupid...

chief characteristic of poodle: bonkers... errrmm..



all of which reminds me of the following:


New canine crossbreeds:


Collie + Lhasa Apso

Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport


Bloodhound + Borzoi

Bloody Bore, a dog that's not much fun


Pointer + Setter

Poinsetter, a traditional Christmas pet


Kerry Blue Terrier + Skye Terrier

Blue Skye, a dog for visionaries


Pekingnese + Lhasa Apso

Peekasso, an abstract dog


Labrador Retriever + Curly Coated Retriever

Lab Coat Retriever, the choice of research scientists


Malamute + Pointer

Moot Point, owned by....oh, well, it doesn't matter anyway


Collie + Malamute

Commute, a dog that travels to work


Bull Terrier + "Ooops, word censored!"zu

Bull "Ooops, word censored!"zu, a gregarious but unreliable breed



and while I'm on a roll.....



Did you hear about the man who brought a very limp dog into the vet?


As he lay the dog on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope, placing the receptor on the dog's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, but your dog has passed away."


"What?" screamed the man. "How can you tell? You haven't done any testing on him or anything. I want another opinion!"


With that, the vet turned and left the room. In a few moments, he returned with a Labrador Retriever. The Retriever went right to work, checking the poor dead dog out thoroughly. After a considerable amount of sniffing, the Retriever sadly shook his head and said. "Bark".


The veterinarian then took the Labrador out and returned in a few moments with a cat, who also checked out the poor dog on the table. As had his predecessors, the cat sadly shook his head and said, "Meow." He then jumped off the table and ran out of the room. The veterinarian handed the man a bill for £600.


The dog's owner went mad. "£600! Just to tell me my dog is dead? Why this is outrageous!"


The vet shook his head sadly and explained. "If you had taken my word for it, it would have been £50, but with the Lab work and the cat scan..."
