The Great Pyramid of Giza (aka the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Plateau. The pyramid was built as a tomb for Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek). It took 20 years to build and was completed in 2560 BC. It stands at 146 m tall.

The limestone blocks are larger in the lower layers and smaller in the upper layers. The large blocks weigh 6.5 - 10 tons and the smaller ones about 1.3 tons.

An additional 144,000 tightly-fitted outer (casing) stones that gave the pyramid a smooth surface lasted till the 13th century when earthquakes loosened them. The Arabs recognised a great quarry of precut stones could be used to finish off palaces and mosques. They gladly removed these casing stones for construction work as far away as Cairo.

Pyramid climbing is no longer allowed unless very special permission is granted. Planes are not allowed to fly above the pyramids either. In general, the pyramids receive the national protection they rightly deserve.

People who believe strange things about the pyramids are known as pyramidiots.

Dogue de Bordeaux or Bordeaux Mastiff or French Mastiff or Bordeauxdog is claimed to have the largest head in the canine world, in proportion to the rest of the body. A male dog weighs more than 50 kg.

The Dogue de Bordeaux is even-tempered, protective by nature, and is vigilant but without aggressiveness.

Indications of purity of the breed include a pink nose, light eye color (dark amber), and red mask.

This dog was known in France as early as the 14th century particularly in the region around Bordeaux. Hence, the city lent its name to these large dogs........Wikipedia

A Look that is without Aggression

The owner left his two large dogs in his luxurious BMW to pick up his bread. Trust me, you wouldn't want to sit in the back seats after them despite they are comfy leather seats.
[Permission was granted by owner to take pictures of his dogs. Thank you sir.]
