Last call: Trading Post ads

The March Trading Post will be issued on Monday, March 9, 1998. I still 
haven't heard from a lot of you folks whose ads have run for three 
months in the TP and are going to be deleted, unless I hear from you.  
These ads have a date of 11/97 in parentheses after the ad.

Also, new TP ads will be accepted for the March TP if I receive them 
prior to March 9.  Please forward existing ad confirmation (that you 
want it to run for another three months) or new ads at your earliest 
opportunity. The February TP is printed below, for your review.

One of the earliest Christian symbols was the fish
(Greek: icthys, which was an abbreviation for the Greek
words in the phrase: Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior).
Thus, disciples could identify each other by their use
of the fish symbol, which continues to be used today.
Jonah was swallowed by a huge fish and remained
within it for three days and three nights. Afterwards,
he was "vomited" (literal translation) onto the beach
to go and minister to the people of Ninevah (Jonah 2:1-11).
While we often find references in aquarium books
concerning the first instances of fishkeeping
by humans, this appears to be the first instance
of humankeeping by a fish!
