Another Album Moved!

I’ve moved another album to this site. This one’s very small – and perhaps badly named, since I anticipated adding more pictures to it. Who knows – maybe there will be more to come. Powered by DM PhotoAlbums&#153 Full Screen

That Children Issue

When I meet people for the first time and they find out that I was 20 when I got married, the first question they ask is how many children we have. It’s rather funny to me that people automatically assume that a young marriage happens only because of pregnancy, but it’s true. However, that’s not […]

Marriage – It’s Not a Matter of Belief

You probably know at least one person who has refrained from getting married because s/he says “I don’t believe in the institution of marriage.” or something similar.  While I understand many of the arguments people make for retaining their “single” status indefinitely, I think “not believing” in marriage is, well, a load of crap. I […]

Insanity in the News

Sometimes you’re just in awe at the weirdness and scope of the news.  Today is one of those days for me.  Here goes. The local Maserati dealership closed (as if every community has one) – after being open for only a few months.  I could never have predicted that, with the abounding prosperity everywhere.  I […]

Gram’s Catholic-ness

Two cats are better than one?

So, we’ve got two cats.  There’s Tangee (we didn’t change his name when we got him), who we adopted from the Humane Society the August after we got the house.  He’s odd.  He was about twelve when we got him and he made these odd noises at the shelter, so we grabbed him up.  Because […]

Rant

I was looking through some old files today and found this.  I’m not sure what I did with it when I originally wrote it.  I may have sent it somewhere – a newspaper, perhaps.  Or I might just have let it sit there, encoded as 1’s and 0’s on my hard drive.  I thought I’d […]

Lowering our Carbon Footprint, #1

In response to Live Earth, I thought I would post some of the things we have done to lower our impact on the Earth.  This post is about the most recent thing we’ve done, replacing our old gasoline-powered lawnmower with a person-powered push mower.  This was a good idea for us for a couple of reasons.  […]
