A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek). It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. The Phoenix's ability to be reborn from its own ashes implies that it is immortal, though in some stories the new Phoenix is merely the offspring of the older one
The Navy SEAL Creed
In times of war and uncertainty there is a special breed of Warrior ready to answer our Nation’s call.
A common man with uncommon desires forged by adversity he stands alongside America’s finest Special Operation Forces to serve his Country, the American people, and protect their Way of Life.
I am that Man!
My Trident is a symbol of honor and heritage bestowed upon me by the Heroes that have gone before and embodies the trust of those I am sworn to protect.
By wearing the Trident I accept the responsibility of my chosen profession and it is a privilege that I must earn every day.
My loyalty to Country and Team is beyond reproach. I humbly serve as a Guardian to my fellow Americans always ready to defend those who are unable to defend themselves. I do not advertise the nature of my work or seek recognition for my actions. I voluntarily accept the inherent hazards of my profession placing the welfare and security of others before my own.
I serve with honor on and off the battlefield. The ability to control my emotions and my actions regardless of circumstances sets me apart from other men. Uncompromising integrity is my standard. My character and honor are steadfast.
My Word is my Bond.
We expect to lead and be lead. In the absence of Orders I will take charge, lead my Teammates, and accomplish the mission. I lead by example in all situations.
I will NEVER Quit!
I persevere and thrive on adversity. My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies.
If knocked down I will get back up every time!
I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my Teammates and accomplish the mission.
I am NEVER out of the fight!
We demand discipline. We expect innovation. The lives of my Teammates and the success of our mission depend on me, my technical skill, tactical proficiency, and attention to detail.
My training is NEVER complete!
We train for War and fight to win. I stand ready to bring the full spectrum of combat power to bear in order to achieve my mission and the goals established by my Country. Execution of my duties will be swift and violent when required, yet guided by the principle that I serve to defend.
Brave men have fought and died building the proud tradition and fear of reputation that I am bound to uphold. In the worst of conditions the legacy of my Teammates steadies my resolve and silently guides my every deed.
I will NOT fail!

The Dragon is a creature set apart from any other not because of his appearance, but because of the incredibly high intelligence level. One reason why the dragon attains an intelligence so much higher than that of man is most likely due to that fact that dragons live so much longer than man. It is wisdom gained over hundreds of years of experience that makes the dragon our superior. Young dragons in fact are much less intelligent than young humans. This could be because human children are raised and taught by their parents for many years. Young male dragons are left to hatch and fend for themselves. They rely purely on instinct for many years. Their level of intelligence at this time is no higher than a very cunning predator. The female dragons who are much rarer and very highly regarded are taken to the dragon court to be raised with the other young females where they recieve teaching of dragon knowledge.
The adult dragon is astute and extremely powerful. His cunning helps him to elude human traps and evade any attempt to capture or sometimes even merely to see the dragon. The dragon is also very proud. As well he should be, being well versed in magic and earth sciences. The dragons knowledge and use of magic is yet another piece of evidence proving his wisdom and intellectual ability. It is well known that magic takes an enormous amount of concentration and conditioning. Dragons have been know to magically hold human forms for many days without rest or returning to their original form. That is a task not easy to achieve without incredible concentration. In addition to taking human forms, dragons are also very versed in human language. Although the dragons' prefered language is latin, dragons are known to speak any toungue from within the region in which they live. A dragon also knows the power associated with names. Something which he keeps a closely guarded secret so as not to be used against him. A dragon goes only by assumed names so his cannot be used against him. A dragon's name is given to him by his father and changes throughout his lifetime as he encounters different events and as he matures.
The wisdom of an elder dragon is matched by no other creature known on this earth. Much of a dragons power and prestige is due to its great wisdom. Thanks to his wisdom, the dragon has been both revered and feared by humans throughout the ages. Whether or not dragons still exist today remains a mystery. They have the ability to walk among us, or to hide and never be found. Only a priveledged few might have the fortune to meet one
I'm sure we are all familiar with the basic appearance of the dragon. It's a big scary winged creature with razor sharp claws, poison carrying teeth and evil dark red eyes right? Wrong! This is the image burned in our minds. It is a picture of a creature rarley seen by scared peasants and described as horribly as possible by jealous wizards of old. True, most dragons have wings and claws. But so do most birds. And as for the poison teeth and dark red eyes...I think I saw that in a movie some where. Real dragons are creatures of beauty, both inside and out.
The Dragon (Drago drago) can be classified as a reptile. However, it is a homoiothermic creature. Meaning it is a warm-blooded creature, internally controlling his body temperature. This, of course, allows him to live in any environment he chooses. As mentioned above, most dragons do have wings and hollow bones for lightness. But some of the more ancient dragons, usually found in the eastern part of the world (China, Asia), have stubby legs and no wings. In fact the only thing separating these dragons from large predatory lizards are the predominant crests and bird-like claws they posses. All dragons are covered with armor-like scales that have a trnslucent horny surface. This gives the dragons the irridescent hue to their bodies. The Earth dragon does not have scales on his neck or belly and many times covers the exposed area with jewels for protection (and vanity some might say). The skeleton of the dragon is very resemblant of that of a common horse. The main differences appear in the skull, which often has horns and sharp teeth, the tail and claws rather than hooves, of course, and in the shoulder blade. A dragon's shoulder blade is highly developed to accomodate for both the front arm or leg and the wing structure. It is also relatively large compared to other animals because it must support the large muscle mass for the wings.
As mentioned before, not all dragons are of the stereotypical winged variety. Many variations do occur as the dragons stay in a particular environment for many generations. Some water dragons for instance, do not have wings, instead they may have large winglike fins or nothing at all and appear as a crested serpent. These "Sea Serpents" were very common in the days of the vikings. The well known viking ships which sported the dragon shaped masthead were carved in this manner in an attempt to scare off the sea serpents. This very rarely worked because dragons are much too intelligent to fall to such simple trickery. But it made the vikings feel better! Other strange variations of dragons have been spotted, such as the multi-headed Hydra. This variation is believed to be a result of inbreeding defects rather than evolution.
A dragons coloring is something like a human fingerprint. Many dragons have the same coloring but each dragon has its own mixture and pattern of different hues of that color. It would be impossible to list all of the different hues and gradiations of color that dragons posses. But all these colors can generally be placed into three broad color groupings: the Blues, the Reds, and the Greens. The Blue Dragons can range in color anywhere from dark blue to silver and mother of pearl. The Red Dragons can be anything from copper to bright vivid red, such as the dragon at right, to dark reddish-black. Greens, which seem to be the most common (probably because they generally live in the same environment as humans and are seen more), vary in color from any shade of green to yellow and includes dark brown and burnished gold. These three principle groups are not usually mixed, however, as mentioned before, a dragons coloring will generally vary with many different hues from one of the main catagories.
Most dragons' scales also cary a metallic luster that makes them shimmer in the sunlight. This is possibly another way of hiding. By using this reflective luster to their advantage, they can reflect the light waves from their surroundings and blend in much like a lizard changes colors. If a dragon appears pale or his scales are slightly opaque in color, this is a sure sign of poor health. Many dragons are known in assumed name by their colors such as Ancalagon the Black, Temeliay the Gold, or Canth the Brown.
Dragons and Magic
Dragons are very well versed in magic. But only in the natural magics. Earth magic, Plant magic, and Water magic. Dragons do not devel in black magic because they live in harmony with nature. Black magic steals energy and life from nature to do its bidding. Of course, as in any species, there are a disgruntled few who do practice Black magic. But these live as outcasts never to recieve any help, or recognition, and constantly living in fear of being killed by all of the dragon clan.
The dragon using natural magics knows how and to what extent he can manipulate nature for his own purposes without disturbing the delicate ecological balance. He can invoke the power of the elements and create illusions including those which he may use for disguises. A dragon can appear as part of the landscape or even as a human or any other animal. Some of the more practiced, elder dragons can hold a disguise for several days without falter. There are many human legends of humans transformed into dragons. This is most likely a case of a young dragon in disguise who accidentally lost concentration or could just not hold the guise any longer without rest.
These magnificent dragon wizards hold great contempt for the clumsy human wizards who often alter and corrupt the life forces of nature, with no respect or thought of the consequences. This to the dragons is practically black magic. The only reason the dragons let these wizards live to practice magic in this way is because they know the wizards do not know any better. The contempt is mutaul however, because the wizards are jealous of the dragons great power and mastery of magic. This is most of the cause of the dragons bad reputation. For ages, medieval necromancers and preists who were jealous of their superiors taught the common folk that dragons were the incarnation of evil and the devil.
Poems that my daughter wrote for me
Always there for your daughter
Every day the whole year through,
I feel grateful you are my father.
Some fathers don't have time for their kids,
But for you I'm never a bother.
You always make the effort to listen and share;
You're there whenever you're needed.
Because I know how much you care,
My problems are all defeated.
Dad, you are truly admired and adored,
And I hope you always know,
Your daughter's affection for you is strong,
And my love continues to grow.
I love you, Dad, and want you to know,
I feel your love wherever I go.
Whenever I've problems, you're there to assist,
The ways you have helped me would make quite a list.
Your wisdom and knowledge have shown me the way,
And I'm thankful for you as I live day by day.
I don't tell you enough how important you are,
In my universe you're a bright shining star
I'd pick you
Dad, if all the fathers
Had lined up one by one,
And God told me to pick,
I'd still choose to be your daughter.
I'm proud to have a father
Who listens and understands,
Who teaches me and sets fair rules
Without unfair demands.
Dad you are my hero,
My role model in all you do.
So Dad, if I could pick again,
You know I'd still pick you!

Hydra is an ancient Greek mythical beast that was mentioned in the tale of the twelve labours of Hercules (also called Heracles). The hydra has 9 heads, the number of head varies from different versions of the legend, however, more accounts agree on nine. It was said that the middle one was immortal and it has very poisonous venom and breath.
If the heads are cut off, the heads would grow back. One head cut-off would result to two heads growing back in its place.
The Hydra was believed to have lived in the Lernean marsh which is located near Argolis, the region around Argos, Greece.
The serpent-woman Echinda and the hundred headed Typhon are Hydraï¿½s parents. His siblings include the Nemean lion, Cerberus, Chimer and Ladon.
The Hydra guards the entrance to the Underworld and from the murky swamps of the Lake of Lerna the monstrous serpent would rise and terrorize the city. The Hydra was finally killed by Hercules during his second labor.

The Wiccan Creed
Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny’s pathway,
That now we bring forth into light.
Mysterious water and fire,
The earth and the wide-ranging air,
By hidden quintessence we know them,
And will and keep silent and dare.
The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magical ring.
Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
Returns, and witches are seen
At Lammas, and Candlemas dancing,
On May Eve and old Hallowe’en.
When day-time and night-time are equal,
When the sun is at greatest and least,
The four Lesser Sabbats are summoned,
Again witches gather in feast.
Thirteen silver moons in a year are,
Thirteen is the coven's array.
Thirteen times as Esbat make merry,
For each golden year and a day.
The power was passed down the ages,
Each time between woman and man,
Each century unto the other,
Ere time and the ages began.
When drawn is the magical circle,
By sword or athame or power,
Its compass between the two worlds lie,
In Land of the Shades for that hour.
This world has no right then to know it,
And world beyond will tell naught,
The oldest of Gods are invoked there,
The Great Work of magic is wrought.
For two are the mystical pillars,
That stand to at the gate of the shrine,
And two are the powers of nature,
The forms and the forces divine.
The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess,
Of this did our ancestors teach.
By night he’s the wild wind’s rider,
The Horn’d One, the Lord of the shades,
By day he’s the King of the Woodlands,
The dweller in green forest glades.
She is youthful or old as she pleases,
She sails the torn clouds in her barque,
The bright silver lady of midnight,
The crone who weaves spells in the dark.
The master and mistress of magic,
They dwell in the deeps of the mind,
Immortal and ever-renewing,
With power to free or to bind.
So drink the good wine to the Old Gods,
And dance and make love in their praise,
Til Elphame's fair land shall receive us,
In peace at the end of our days.
An Do What You Will be the challenge,
So be it in Love that harms none,
For this is the only commandment,
By Magick of old, be it done.
Eight words the Witches’ Creed fulfill:
If it harms none, do what you will.
In the darkness you paint us, but we will not hide,
we are the light of the country in which you abide,
we are fearless and strong, the protectors of life
hidden in shadows, we conquer all strife.
We come from the old ones, our linage secure.
We rise from the ashes, we always endure.
Its time you remembered we were here first.
we've healed your sick, yet endured your worst.
From time immemorial we've woven our lore
cunning folks, healers benandanti - theres more
we're black and we're white, wer're brown and we're yellow.
we're women and children, and mighty fine fellows.
We're her hidden children, the angels of light,
our task is to teach and to help set things right.
we conjure and cast, and whisper and pray
so you can enjoy your freedom each day.
We've long been your army, protecting your back
when you are in trouble, in secret we act.
The mother is watching-she hasn't missed much.
shes gathered her magick and given the touch
to witches and pagans and druids and such!
The times are a'changing and one thing is clear
The Lord and the Lady have now reappeared
Two pillars, three points, four quarters extend
five is the number of the magickal blend.
By moon and by sun, by earth and stars
realise this day that the power is ours!
LIVE IT, BREATH IT, BE IT!!
