The Knights of Malta, also known as the Knights of St. John or the “hospitialers” was a religious order founded by Amalfitian merchants around the year 1070. The purpose of the order was to aid and care for pilgrims making the journey to the Holy Land.
In 1136 the knights became a fully militarized order. The Knights driven out of Syria had been fleeing years of persecution by Islamic forces acquired Malta as their Sovereign Land from Charles V of Spain in 1530. This is the time that the Maltese Cross evolved into the present day form.
The cross is described as a white eight pointed cross. The eight points of the cross are believed to represent the eight vows the knights had to observe.
Although many countries and organizations throughout the world use crosses that are similar if not exact in shape to the Maltese Cross, the fact remains that the Maltese Cross has its own specific purpose and should not be confused with other decorations or medals that have their own purpose.

The design featured five red horizontal bands, alternating with white stripes, and a blue isosceles triangle along the hoist side which features a white, five-pointed star in the center.
In 1952, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico used the same design as its official country flag without stipulating the particular tones and shades of colors to be used.
Then, in 1995, the Puerto Rican government issued a regulation where in the colors were specified but no official color tones or shades were mandated. Thus, when visiting the island, it is not surprising to see the Puerto Rican flag bearing different shades of blue, in light or dark tones.
We have this beautiful Puerto Rican flag patch available for purchase at TheCheapPlace. Let your country pride fly!
They are natures original milk jugs. Mounds of flesh that come in varying shapes and sizes, and can be dressed in an endless array of fabrics and styles.
To you (ladies), they’re obviously part of your body, for better or worse. Sometimes you’re proud of them, sometimes unhappy and most of you know how to use them to your advantage (at least a little).
To guys, however, breasts are the object of something between strong interest and out-and-out obsession, depending upon the guy (and the set). They men fixate, double-take and lose our trains of thought. They make their eye contact stray during conversation. They make them sigh involuntarily. They make men gawk.
Whether you know them as sweater kittens, fun bags, or whatever other term of endearment, there’s no debating that female breasts have a prominent place in our society.
If you love the boobies and wanna show it buy this funny embroidered patch here at TheCheapPlace.
Broadly defined, high maintenance women are those who need many things (money, material goods, affection) to be happy. These women love dressing up whenever possible, and are obsessed with all aspects of their personal appearance and grooming in general.

From government agencies putting out preparation plans for the imminent zombie invasion to Hollywood doubling its output of zombie movies, the brain-eating creatures that rise from the dead have become more prominent and more popular in recent years.
The myths that informed 21st-century America’s idea of a zombie are relevant for historical purposes, but we may have never heard of zombies if not for the seemingly endless demand for zombie movies.
Of course, movies are just legends with bigger budgets, and they all have an ending. Just as it was in 8th-century China and colonial Haiti, the real currency at play in the zombie story is fear, and fear will never die.
Need a zombie patch? We have a few different styles to choose from including the one you see here. We have plenty of other funny patches in stock as well at TheCheapPlace.
One explanation stated “COEXIST is a way to demonstrate your support of religious freedom, tolerance and understanding.” Now I don’t think that’s very evil, it actually sounds like something I would love to have for what I believe.
Another was “to encourage others in a greater religious understanding of other’s distinctive faiths, beliefs and practices. To promote friendship, goodwill and mutual trust among them.” Again, I am not seeing anything too scary evil or making me want to call 911 and get them on the lookout for these crazy people.
If Christians believe in love, then we have to love everyone, even those who believe in different gods. Because honestly, why would anyone want to hear about our God and beliefs, if we don’t even care enough to care about theirs?
