That is amazing! Now I have to have one. I'm not sure if I can give up my beer money though. I just had my fourth child Jan 1. The only money I have left is beer money and with four kids I'll need it!

Thanks for the offer Rmplmnz maybe in a few years when my baby is old enough to stay at home by herself. Alright by then I'm not sure I'll be young enough to dig these things up every year. Until then what would it cost someone to pay for s/h of one of those pups? It would be great to have everyone in the neighborhood wondering what is wrong with me!

From the net:
"The expression "commander of the army of the LORD" is translated in the KJV as "captain of the host of the LORD." The word translated "host" and "army" is Hebrew saba. The plural sabaot used about 213 times in the phrase "the LORD of hosts" (KJV). The NIV's "LORD Almighty" misses the military aspect of the term."

(KJV) = King James Version
(NIV) = New International Version

Oh no! I'm not ready yet - our last official freeze date from Northern NJ is May 15, and I'm having a rough time keeping everything I have alive inside! In a month or so I should be all set to get started for the spring. Currently snowing with another 3-6" accumulating overnight...

I will move south!!!

I would definitely be interested in a pup, if you have any left. My climate zone is not perfect (8b), but I enjoy hard labor.

I will PM you with a query.
