Happy birthday, bynw!

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Happy birthday, Bynw. Mixed memories, I know but may it be a good one this year. And requiescat in pace to those you love and have lost.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Hello Bynw,
Birthday day! Make it a wonderful, and a happy one!
I've heard that your Avatar stands for the phoenix. (love the cake DR.) I am curious about the name, Bynw?
See you in the forum's.

I have always assumed Bynw is of Welsh derivation.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

You would think from the spelling that Bynw is a Welsh name, but no, it's transliterated Egyptian for "phoenix."  You'll see it spelled other ways because transliteration works like that.  It's pronounced BEN (like, the nickname for Benjamin)-new (the opposite of "old"), with the emphasis on the first syllable.  (I only know because I asked him once.)

What is Bynw ...

In Egypt the phoenix is known as Bennu or Bynw.
It is an emblem of the sun god and is associated
with Osiris, the ruler of the underworld. Osiris,
who himself was resurrected, gave the Bennu the
secrets of eternal life. In Egypt, the Bennu was
symbolic of other cycles such as those of the
sun's rising and setting and the Nile's beneficial
annual floods.


Every 500 years, the Bennu flew to the Sun Temple
in Heliopolis where the priests were waiting to
assist it. The bird then built a large funeral
pyre of spices, climbed on top, and allowed the
sun's rays to consume it. From the ashes,
a worm was born which grew into an adult Bennu
by the end of the day.


THE PHOENIX
The Bennu, the sacred bird, is
the quintessence of rebirth...
