subject in this article by Carl Olson
from the blog of the Ignatius Press...

& what I would like
to know is...

If all these 'historical
facts' are true, how
can anyone claim to
'own' them?

Does anyone 'own' the

facts of any facet of

It seems a bit far-
to me!

Unless, of course, you are
more concerned with the
ways of the world, than
with the Truth. Unfortun-
ately, it looks as if that's
the case in this case.

Father have mercy on the
souls of these people

Who have distorted Your

Concerning Your Life-

For profit and celebrity.

May Your Spirit


& touch their souls.

Thank You, Lord Jesus,

A Question...


Carl Olson,

& an Answer...


Dr. Thursday.

A hat-trick...

scored by Eric Scheske-

1) The importance of (no,
not 'Brews You Can Use':)
Natural Grace...

&. . .

2) The meaning of

Christians' fast-before-
the-feast as
Something for
a Sunday Morning...

both from

The Daily Eudemon.

+ (!!!)

3) A link to a copy of
Heretics from
Chesterton and Friends.

(Does Sam Rosen know
about this?)

About those blog


Someone mentioned them
yesterday- and although I
won't say who- yes, sir, you
were nominated. Most of
the people that I nominated
didn't make it...

&, correct me if I'm wrong,
even though we could only
nominate one person per
category, we could vote more
than once if we wanted to?

That is how I understood it
to be, although I voted only
once per category-
& as this is my blog, for any-
one that is interested, this is
my opinion of that...

I don't like competions.
I am not a competitive person.
Most of the people that I know
do their best whenever they
attempt to do anything. The
blogs listed to the right are
all different, & all exceptional.
& you really don't need me to
tell you that. So just so you
know, you won't be getting
my 'vote of excellence' once
a year anymore...

because you've
already got it!

Took a class

for defensive driving
last week- the instructor
had us stymied with this

What comes
out in the spring that
causes more car accidents
than anything else?

Answer: Signs for yard sales.

I was thinking of that as I
stopped at a pre-season

yard sale to search for
hidden treasures...

This looked interesting.
Will let you know...

I admit it...

For the first time in years,
I'm looking forward to the
spring season!

Don't know if it's because
I'm sick of wearing socks,
want to go fly a kite,

or what!

So, although I can't explain

I can't wait for spring!

Presidents Day


Bless all of our leaders, &
Keep them wise in
Your ways,

Thank You, Dear Lord!


A wonderful work!

is this portrait of Lincoln,

I Know My Sheep

by Kathy Lawrence

To My Valentine

Who, completely unaware
that I 'liked him'- liked him,
turned me down when I first
asked him out, because it
was laundry day...

& is still, after twenty-five
years, the only man who
comes to mind whenever
I see this pic...

To quote one of my all-
time favorite characters,

"I do thank God every day,
for the miracle of me
darlin' Angel!"

(Thank you so much
for being mine,

ABC: An Amazing Bridge

of Communication!

One that spans from
The Curt Jester

Comprised not only of
our tried & true form of
communication, the ABC's,
but the recent scientific

miracle of communication...

Going to be going

back in time...

To Oct/Nov. & Dec.
2005, to be exact.

No, not via H. G. Wells
time machine-

but courtesy of those
two issues of
Gilbert Magazine,
which arrived this

From what I understand,
this magazine is always a
bit off schedule- (which
really doesn't bother me
as I usually am, too... LOL!)

So after a bit of catch-up on
my reading, it'll be back-to-
the-present and over to
The Blog of the
American Chesterton Society

to see who liked which articles.

I'm already likin' the
view that *Dale Ahlquist
had with musician Larry
Norman, who was the man
that first recommended the
writings of G. K. Chesterton
to Mr. Ahlquist years ago.

*Dale Ahlquist is the

president of
The American Chesterton Society,
& host of EWTN's
G. K. Chesterton:
The Apostle of Common Sense,

which is on Sunday at
9:00pm Eastern Time, and
Saturday at 2:30pm ET...
& is where I first learned
about Mr. G.K.C:)

Fr. Leo Clifford

this morning-
(on EWTN from
7:20-7:30am &
Eastern time)

Saying how we
lead our busy lives,
& right up the road
in our midst is the
Blessed Sacrament-
our Lord in His Most
Humble Form.

(Kept sometimes even
under lock & key)...

Until the day He is re-
vealed in the fullness
of His Glory.

You'd think we'd be
flocking to see Him.

! ! !

Amen, Fr. Leo!

A Quote

this a.m. from
Fr. Leo Clifford,

who I thought
had quoted
Oscar Wilde...

until I looked it up &
found out that it was
George Bernard Shaw
who said,
"There are two
tragedies in life. One
is not to get your
heart's desire. The
other is to get it."

Which led me to a
neat quotations site-

& I remember a priest
telling me, when refer-
ring to people who have
gone before us, that it
is correct to say that they
'are' rather than they

So after reading some
of their more memor-
able quotes, it seems
accurate to say that
George Bernard Shaw
& Oscar Wilde are very
funny guys...

(weren't they?)
