We've set up a  RSS / XMlL News Feed for the forum.

What's a News Feed ?
A news feed is where postings to a forum, blog or other are output to a RSS / XML file; this file can be read by News Feed readers, and now by Internet Explorer 7 & Firefox 2 browsers (see bottom of post).

What's a News Feed Reader?
News Feed readers are small programs that receive RSS / XML news feeds from syndicated and other sources, delivering the updated news articles to your desktop.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

"It ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the compassionate if we in turn will not practice elementary compassion towards our fellow creatures. "
