This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

Probable victim of the Ripper, Elizabeth Stride, was born in Sweden on a farm called Stora Tumlehed in Torslanda parish, north of Gothenburg. She came to London, England in 1866. Her nickname was “Long Liz” because she was 5′ 5″ tall, which made her taller than most of the women of her time.
