You like... I do is a short video display of "Man's Best Friend" featuring some of Mirella Manca's Stormbandit Bull Terriers in the Netherlands.
That is wher I met Stormbandit's Kublai Khan whom call Willem in the Summer of 2002.
The bull terrier is perhaps one of the most mis-understood of all the breeds of dogs. They are strong willed, yet gentle, They are like having a 2 year old in a clown suit, but bull terriers are not for everyone.
Physically they are an oddity with their egg shaped heads and almond eyes, but their hearts are as large as they are, maybe even more.
I hope that you enjoy the video and if you ever have a chance to know one they will be forever in your heart.

Columcille Megalith Park
Columcille Megalith Park is a playground of myth and mystery located in the Appalachian Mountains nea Stroudsberg, Pennsylvania. The park rooted in Celtic spirituality and inspired by the Isle of Iona off the coast of Scotland provides a beautiful and serene setting for those who wish to step back in time and enjoy this pristine megalithic site. Columcille is an outdoor sanctuary open to the public as a sacred space for quiet meditation. Admission is free, but there is a drop box for donations.
I hope that you enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the megalith structures, maybe enough to go there yourselves.
Thanks for watching
