After getting shot down by the girl who inspired his poetry, he was killed and then sired by Drusilla. Only years old using the most recent evidence, ” Fool For Love ” , Spike has already killed two Slayers. He tried multiple times to kill Buffy, but to no avail but then again, she didn’t kill him either. Much to his chagrin, he then developed a major crush on the Slayer herself. This crush led him to reject both Drusilla and Harmony in favor of the non-reciprocating Buffy, and to have a Buffy sex-robot built to allow him to fulfill his kinky fantasies. Unfortunately for Spike, the real Buffy discovered the robot and took it from him. The combination of the chip and his love for Buffy seemed to have a positive effect on Spike, who became a helpful ally to the Scooby Gang. During Season 6, after Buffy came back from the dead emotionally screwed up, she began a secretive sexual and violent relationship with Spike. After she ended it, he tried to initiate sex with her again, and ended up attempting to rape her. Horrified, he went to Africa to get his soul back, which now appears to be driving him somewhat insane.

Crosses and Crucifixes We have St. Helena to thank for our crosses and crucifixes. When the mother of the Emperor Constantine was on pilgrimage to Jerusalem in , she is said to have uncovered the True Cross on which Christ was crucified and sent fragments of it back to Constantinople and Rome. Those not fortunate enough to have access to True Cross reliquaries had to make do with copies of the cross on which Christ died. And so, crosses in various forms came to hold a special place in the devotional life of Christians.
Whatever else might be said about the sad state of disunity in Christendom, it has, certainly, fostered extraordinary diversity in Cross and Crucifixion imagery!

Although most of these men had heard of but not seen the famous contest between John Henry and the steam drill, Johnson ultimately was able to find a man who said he had seen it.
This man, known as Neal Miller, told me in plain words how he had come to the tunnel with his father at 17, how he carried water and drills for the steel drivers, how he saw John Henry every day, and, finally, all about the contest between John Henry and the steam drill. Miller, “John Henry wanted to drive against it.
He took a lot of pride in his work and he hated to see a machine take the work of men like him. The test went on all day and part of the next day. He wouldn’t rest enough, and he overdid. He took sick and died soon after that. Miller described the steam drill in detail. I made a sketch of it and later when I looked up pictures of the early steam drills, I found his description correct.
I asked people about Mr. Miller’s reputation, and they all said, “If Neal Miller said anything happened, it happened.

Tiny Digs’ new rental home on wheels, Arthur, is a perfect culmination of these novelties. This caboose style tiny house is decked out to delight railroad enthusiasts of all ages. And in fact, it was built in honor of co-owner Pam Westra’s grandfather, Arthur. He was a lifelong lover of trains, historical and model sized. Like each of the themed houses at Tiny Digs, the attention to detail of the Arthur, from the craftsmanship to decor, is astonishing.
Pam poured her heart into the interior design of this tiny space. He was born in in Saginaw, Michigan. Arthur loved the rails. He would hear the train whistles off in the distance and we’d jump in the car and race to the tracks. We’d sit in his old Ford and count the number of railcars that the engine was pulling. He was really big into the miniature railroads also. In the basement of his home was a total city and countryside setup with what seemed like miles of tracks to me as a young child.
The engines would puff smoke and disappear into the tunnels of the mountains in the distance way across the basement. If you have a love for the railroad or know someone who does, come spend a night in Arthur and bring a friend or two along since he sleeps four people.
