Happy 14th Birthday Danny!

Aur Onnad Meren Erubadhron! (Happy Birthday Danny) You are a wonderful brother; I am so glad God chose to give you to our family......although I do appreciate that He let me be born first. ;)

Doesn't he make a cute hobbit, even if he is tall?

And aren't these perfect hobbit legs/feet? :P

Guess who I talked to?

FISHY AND ROSE!!!!! For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about let me explain. *clears throat* My all time favorite books by Regina Doman are Shadow of the Bear (SoTB), Black as Night, and Waking Rose. SoTB is currently being filmed (turned into a movie) by my amazing forum "sister" Elena. Yesterday I talked to two of the main characters, Fish (Anthony) and Rose (Sharayah), on the phone with a handful of other girls from the Forum (dedicated to the Regina Doman books). IT WAS SOOOOO COOL!!! And what was funny was that they actors acted (well alright, sounded) like the characters they play!!! We weren't able to talk to Blanche (Hannah) because she didn't show up at the time we were on the phone, and Bear (Jed) wasn't there that day. It was so hard to restrain myself when Fish got on the phone; I wanted to scream like a fan girl sooooo bad!!! However, I did survive and didn't scare him off. ;)

To keep updated on the movie (and lots of pictures) go here:

Stupid, stupid, stupid Catholic college!

Look! Look!!! The heretics that have the nerve to call themselves "Catholic" are at it again! Make sure to look at the pictures on the link.

It’s one thing to invite or allow a pro-abortion president to speak at your Catholic university. It’s another to give in to his request that you cover up your Catholic identity.

Which is what Georgetown has done.

Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”–symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.

First point of interest here is that the White House “asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols”. Why? Has any president ever done that? Has Reagan or Bush or Clinton or Bush (or any former president) ever asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols of their Catholic identity?! Obama did.

And this didn’t pose a problem for them?


As of Wednesday afternoon, the “IHS” monogram that had previously adorned the stage at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall was still covered up–when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by

(See the photographs there. They did a good job visually telling this story.)

“In coordinating the logistical arrangements for yesterday’s event, Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage,” Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications at Georgetown, told“The White House wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches,” she added. “Frankly, the pipe and drape wasn’t high enough by itself to fully cover the IHS and cross above the GU seal and it seemed most respectful to have them covered so as not to be seen out of context.”

Most respectful to whom? Out of what context? He’s standing on a stage in a history-steeped, prominent Catholic college in Washington. No amount of PR spin can cover Georgetown’s capitulation of their values and very identity in ‘honoring the White House request’. They cut some plywood to fit, painted it black as an unobtrusive background, and used it to cover the gold ‘IHS’ and cross on that stately pediment.

Roman Catholics traditionally use “IHS” as an abbreviation for Jesus’ name. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, “St. Ignatius of Loyola adopted the monogram in his seal as general of the Society of Jesus (1541) and thus became the emblem of his institute.” The Society of Jesus is the formal name for the Jesuits.

And Georgetown is a “prestigious” Jesuit school. Shame on them.

One thing’s for certain. When Obama speaks at the commencement ceremony in South Bend in May, there will be no draping over the Notre Dame who stands atop the golden dome.

What a mess our country is in. *rolls eyes in disgust*

Another good analogy: $50 Lesson

Another email post too good not to share!!!

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do? '

She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.'

Her parents beamed.

'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.'

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,' Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'

I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'

Her parents still aren't speaking to me.


Check this out:

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is GOD Good ?
Student: Sure.
Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student: Yes.
Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent )

Professor: You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Is Satan good ?
Student: No.
Professor: Where does Satan come from ?
Student: From . . . GOD . . .
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer)

Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who Created them ?

(Student had no answer)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student: No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student: Yes.
Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student: No, sir. There isn't.

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student: Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold. Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student: What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . . But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing. Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class was in Uproar)

Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke out into Laughter )

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . .No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it sir . . . Exactly! The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.

That student was Albert Einstein

Holy Thursday

Act of Spiritual Communion
Lord Jesus, I firmly believe that Thou are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I adore Thee as true God hidden here. I ask Thy pardon for my sins; and because I love Thee above all things, I desire to receive Thee spiritually in this moment.
Pause - Spiritual communion
I thank Thee for having united myself to Thee, and I submit myself entirely to Thy Holy Will.
*The Last Supper picture was from the play "Is it I?" that my parish gave, and my dad was St. Peter.
