"can i come in?"
"i don’t know, can you?”
cursing quietly, the vampire backed away, foiled yet again by the english teacher’s pedantry

Stained glass is invariably associated with place of worship. Yet the lucky residents of the Mexican city of Toluca have a wonderful botanical garden replete with a host of incredibly stained glass windows. As well as being a superb display of plants and art together, it is a tour de force in what to do with a building once it outlives its original purpose. Leopoldo Flores(born 1934) is a Mexican artist mostly known for his murals and other monumental works which are concentrated in the city of Toluca, State of Mexico. a large work in stained glass piece both located in Toluca.
The Wallet Ninja
It seems like the only thing you can’t do with this little helper.. is paying!
BUT aside from this it offers so much more functionality than a credit card. It has the same size as a credit card, so you can easily put it inside your wallet. There’s six Hex wrenches, a can opener, fruit peeler, bottle opener, ruler (standard & metric), letter opener, box opener, phone stand, and eyeglasses, Philips and flathead screwdrivers. It’s made from 4x heat treated steel, and comes with a lifetime guarantee to never rust, bend, dull, or fold up like Circuit City.

Hahaha! I swear this was the best message to wake up to! I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since I first noticed you white trash neo-nazis following me! I didn’t have the heart to say you were following a race traitorous, brown girl loving, American Muslim. Better go cry to Stormfront, you pathetic piece of shit! Hahahah!
And pay attention, because your remarks are about to make me shatter your sad view of American history. The relationship between Muslims and the US goes back as far as the US exists. When George Washington was was being destroyed by the British at Valley Forge, and was about to lose the war… it was African Muslims that saved him. Sultain Sidi Muhammad bin Abdallah (the ruler of Morocco) made history by being the first in the world to register the United States as a country, and allow US ships to resupply in Moroccan ports. Life-saving supplies and weapons flooded in to Washington’s Army, and the war would have been lost without them. To this day, The United States’ longest unbroken treaty is with an Islamic nation - Morocco.
I’m also a tenth generation American, son. My family came here in 1716. That’s more than half a century before The United States of America was even born. My 8th great grandfather fought alongside Washington in Valley Forge, and was given 200 acres of land as a gift for his outstanding actions in battle. If Washington knew I served in “his Army” and followed my family’s legacy, he would shake my hand and thank me for being a true patriot. For embodying the true American virtues of service, humility, and freedom of religion that he fought for.
And one last tidbit: Thomas Jefferson owned a Quran, and to this day, it’s still kept safe in the Library of Congress. He, along with James Madison and George Washington, argued that America should be open to Muslims as citizens, office-holders, and even presidents. John Adams - our 2nd president - also owned a Quran, and called the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) a “great seeker of truth.” Benjamin Franklin called Islam the “model of compassion.” If there’s anyone our founding fathers would be ashamed of… it’s you. Thank you for your unfollow.
