A general question...

Have heard & found the
music known as Taize-
(written in Taize?) to be
incredibly beautiful...

Without having to contin-

ually bug the guys over at
Christus Vincit, does anyone
know if this exquisite music
will still be acceptable during
the Mass?

(Please don't make me look
this up myself)...


Is there a need

to create myths based on
the reality of the Divine?
Specifically, the prophecies
fulfilled (& to be fulfilled,)
by Christ?

From men such as C.S. Lewis,
and the creators of Super-

very interesting subject.

A beautiful site-

where purchases help to
feed the hungry, God bless
them! and it's getting

interesting items posted,

Ewwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!) :p

Mrs. Brown is advertising
that the CDs are available
from the Chesterton
conference- separately or
in a set...

pics from that weekend.

Also, she coincidentally
poses an opinion of her
own on matters of a

Sherlock-ian nature...

Oh brother!

Well, I caved:p

I extended my
Amazon order to
August *sigh

Maybe I can borrow
it from the library-

or try Barnes and
Noble instead...


Anybody know?

Correct me if I'm wrong...

Read a bio quite a while
ago, that stated that Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle was
also a doctor, an oculist-
(eye doctor) I believe it
was, although quite an
unsuccessful one. He
preferred the title "Dr."
to "Sir," but as a result of
his lack of patients, he re-
luctantly continued writing
his incredibly popular
stories about Sherlock

I have a lousy memory,
so as I said, please correct
me if I mis-state a fact...

Sherlock Holmes was based
on a real man that Conan-
Doyle had worked for. He
was a very successful doctor,
and his astuteness at diag-
nosing a patient astounded

Doyle's position was as an
assistant. He would inter-
view each patient in the
waiting room, carefully
writing down all their
symptoms before they
saw the doctor- described
by Doyle as being a thin,
hawkish looking man...

When the patient would
enter the doctor's office,
Doyle would marvel at
the doctor, who could
"deduce" their symptoms
just by looking at them-
repeating them exactly as
Doyle had written them
down, without having
seen the list...

Do you see what I see?

I agree with

Eric Scheske to a degree...

My dear hearts took me to
see it for my b'day- after
the movie started, I settled
in for a nap, but kept one
eye open;)

I figured it would be a feel-
good-buddy-movie, and it
didn't disappoint.

I agree with Mr. Scheske,
that if you walked in after
twenty minutes, you wouldn't
have missed anything. But,
it did have some laugh-out-
loud scenes...

Not a great movie, but not
all that bad, either.

Tick, tock... tick, tock...

Am disappointed to have
found out that Amazon has
not sent out my order for
Joseph Pearce's book:
The Three Ys Men

which I was hoping to
have already-

By July 3rd, they say...

I guess I'll wait until then,
then reorder if I have to.
