Links to much loved faves

Author Joseph Pearce, editor over at the Ink Desk,(link)

And writer/editor Dawn Eden from The Dawn Patrol.(link)

Briefly, came to know Pearce's work as a biographer through his published, authorized work about Alexander Solzhenitsyn - who Pearce interviewed and stayed with while compiling information for his book...

Too, as a fellow (G. K.) Chestertonian - that the giant of a writer from the last century planted the seed of faith in the imprisoned Pearce's soul, through his mountain of written works (Chesterton's works remaining chiefly unknown to this day) due to Pearce's work as an editor in his youth.

And Dawn Eden, author of The Thrill of the Chaste (linked to the right) who was fired while an editor at one of the top three NYC newspapers, for changing the word "fetus" to "baby".

More to come...

O Holy Night - Il Divo

"O Holy Night" Ernie Ford and Gordon MacRae

Yep, I keep reposting this...

It's too awesome not to.

Turn the sound off, and sync this...

"X" out the ads, too.

with this.

Michael Crawford singing, O Holy Night (1993,1999)

Will be singing this Christmas Eve

at Midnight Mass. Was looking for a version
where the tempo was about the same as ours.
This was the closest, only we won't be wearing 
neat costumes.

Boys Like Girls - Two Is Better Than One (acoustic)

Rosie, Sweet Rosabel.wmv

First heard this sweet melody in a
movie about Harry Houdini...

As the story goes, when Houdini first met his
future wife Bess, this is the song she was
singing. Cannot find that clip from the movie,
but this is the tune, by Paul Dresser.


Arnold's (from Hey Arnold!) last name is MANN...

His Grandpa always called him "short MAN(N)" -

So this is my guess, and I'm stickin' to it.
