Posting will be

light for the next few

Have a good weekend-
& I'll catch up with you
next week :)

Oh... my...


Miracle #1 (link)-
that should directly
be attributed to the
future patron saint
of bloggers, G. K.

With many, many
thanks to the

whose blog is

linked to the right...

& (who so very kindly!)
supplied the link to the
answer of a years-old
question... which was
the subject of one of
yesterday's posts.

Anybody mind

if I complain?


Quite a while ago, I read
that biographer extraordin-
aire, Joseph Pearce, had
written an autobiography
entitled This Rock...

Read the comment when it
was originally posted in '04,
but couldn't remember where
from. Found the comment
the other day, although the
commenter wasn't definite.

& I can't find the book.


So, does anybody know if
Mr. Pearce wrote an auto-
biography? & if so, where
can I find a copy of it?

Would page him myself, but
I've done that already, (link), &
(link), & (link), & (last-but-not-
least... link:).
Although this cam-
paign did not catch the attention
of Mr. Pearce back in October of
last year, I did receive an anony-
mous comment from a very help-
ful reader
many months

So, anon, if you should happen
by, & know the answer, please
let me know... (that goes for
anyone else who might know,

Thank you!

Interesting autobiography

that reads like a fairy-tale,
complete with a wicked king,
an enchanted princess, & a

Was very excited

to have found this site, (link)-
but I don't remember where I
found it, so I don't remember
who to give credit to...

Well, thank you! Found many
treasures while I visited there-

& linking them on the right:)

Okay, time for a famous

I love

No drinking while reading the

all the major networks were

in a bidding war to get them to

I'd believe it!

Found it:)

Must be included among my faves,
dear Dr. Alice Von Hildebrande. (link)

"Now let us abolish the terms

"conservative" or "liberal", the
terms "left" and "right" which
are secularistic. I suggest that
we say from now on "those
who have kept the sense of
the supernatural and those
who have lost it". That is the
great divide, that is the essence."

Article found through the
National Catholic Register. (link)

I'm not going to lift it

but there's a cute cartoon
(with a serious message)
over @ Christus Vincit.

I think they "borrowed"
it from Gerald from
The Cafeteria Is Closed...
so let's just stop that madness

before it gets out of hand, ok? ;)

While visiting Gerald's blog,

I did happen to come across
this interesting post whilst I
was there.

PS: I checked his "blogs-who-
link-here" blogroll, too... &
didn't see mine listed, although
he's been linked here since this
blog's beginning, almost a whole
year ago...

Geez! :(

Your post was very thoughtful,

Was disappointed...

To find out my order
can't be processed
until next month
'cause it's n/a...

It's a work of fiction,
which I don't read
that often, but as it's
by Joseph Pearce, I'm
really looking forward
to it.

Plus, I promised a
friend she could read
it before I do, as she's
a much faster reader,
& she likes his work...

Will keep you

Posted by Mr. B. over

at The Coalition of the Swilling.

I would've posted a soccer

ball in the corner, but in this

case, a bowling ball seemed

more appropriate.

A healthy serving of

Raspberries from

Christus Vincit . . .

Michelle, can we count this
toward our recommended
daily allowance?



Took a quiz posted over
at No Blog of Significance,
& although it was fun I'm
not going to post my re-
sults, as I kind of tend to
disagree with them.

Now, it was also a matter
of the choices given. I would
love to have the brains &
beauty of a
Mrs. Peel,
Honey West, April Dancer,
or any one of Captain Scarlet's
Angels, (I did manage to
squeeze three of their names
into the title of this blog:) Act-

ually, I would consider myself
lucky to have the appeal of the
wonderful Peter Falk's
Lieutenant Frank Columbo!
(hey, I've got the raincoat)...

But none of them were listed
as choices.

And, although I've always

been a great fan of the titian-
haired, eternally-eighteen-
roadster-driving Nancy Drew,
(when in reality I'm more of a
Dorlock Homes, from animation
genius Chuck Jones' brilliant
classic, Deduce, You Say)...

I would prefer to have
the Wisdom and Innocence
this character, who is based
on an actual person.

More interesting reading

Dawn Eden continues
her autobiography, (link)
in installments.

Her book is due out in
December, but can be
pre-ordered at
Amazon. (link)

Can see
Ashlee Simpson (link)
playing Dawn in a movie.
(play 'Invisible'). The kids
love her- she's got some
varied fan base- & she's

Dawn's life, in the bohemian
music/journalistic industry of
NYC- has (more than one!)

vitally important message for
these kids, that they might never
hear anywhere else.

& it's (literally!) about time that

they did!

A real life

detective, William J. Burns,
(1860-1932), who was a
"contemporary" of, & called
greater than...

Sherlock Holmes:)

He founded a detective
agency, was director of
the FBI from 1921-1924,
and was succeeded by
J. Edgar Hoover. He then
retired to write true crime

Don't know how

I missed this one...

Greybeards at Play
written & illustrated by
G. K. Chesterton.

Found thanks to Ted at the
Small Pax Illustration Guild.

Hmmm- I wonder if the
site owner (the one who
posted Chesterton's work)-
is related to one of GKC's

Another article

on the same subject (link)
posted directly below...

which is basically the direction
from whence these ideas
originally stem from.

Lord have mercy on these
misguided souls!


Can this kid write?

or what? (link)

& I'm sorry- the subject
is not funny at all!

What is up with this

Fine, we have all got
free will- we can decide
for ourselves what to
believe & how we're go-
ing to live, to varying

So girls, look in the Bible-
I'm sure you're familiar
with it & know better than

The part where it says we
will be judged by the laws
we choose to live by. You
call yourselves Catholics.
Well, Catholics have one
pope, not a bunch of mini-
popes, who was given the
authority by Christ & the
Holy Spirit to head the
Catholic Church.

So what if the pope is
a man! You do like men,
don't you? You are aware
that He made us man &
woman- one or the other!
This does not mean that
one is better than or pre-
ferred over the other, btw-
the Bible even states this.
That ignorant thinking is
man-made (oops! sorry-
didn't mean to utter a non-
pc reverse-sexist remark!
Who can keep track of this

So, what's with the complex?

You do seem sincere in want-
ing to serve the Lord- a very
good thing!

So pray for guidance from
the Holy Spirit... and remember-

This world is not about us-
or Him! But, our lives should
be, according to His will.


Ordered these three

for a bibliotheque as
they're excellent reads...
(got the member discount,

The only problem being- it
does take libraries a while to
process new books, especially
if they are members of a large
library system.

Checked an online catalog the
other day- they did not have a
couple of books in their system
that technically should have
been there by now.

I guess it's time to give them
a call...
