Rosaries for sale…

... when I can, I prefer to purchase goods from Catholic merchants. I am always more than happy to suggest a merchant's wares here. I don't get paid for advertising and I don't get a percentage of their sales. If you are a merchant and would appreciate a little free exposure, drop me a line. I am going to be compiling a list of links on my sidebar for Catholic merchants.This particular rosary maker did not ask me, but she's The Ironic Catholic's sister-in-law and her rosaries are very … [Read more...]

Camino de Santiago…

... so my doctor said I need to get more exercise and apparently the energy exerted lifting gin to my lips doesn't count.Taking me to task, she challenged me to write down all the fun things I like to do hoping to turn them into opportunities for exercise. The verdict is still out on how many calories one can burn firing off a few rounds at the shooting range. We settled on walking and biking.I don't mind walking as long as I am going somewhere. My efforts have to produce an end goal for me … [Read more...]

I can't even pretend to be one.If you are a single mother pretending to be both mother and father to your child, stop it. Stop it now. Quit being so hard on yourself. You don't have to pretend to be a … [Read more...]

... the world is going mental! Pray for London, be careful where you get your news, and be thankful for our 2nd amendment.Many are saying we are witnessing a preview of the violent activity that is to come to the US. Flash mob violence is already here. What I fear from all this media exposure is that the crazies on my side of the pond are watching London and taking notes.Charlotte, NC is a host city for the Democratic National Convention next year.

there’s already a patron saint for lost causes…

... in the past I've been accused of having a martyr complex. If I do, it's only because I really really want to make it to Heaven and I will welcome any sure shot I can get. Martyrdom is the quickest route, or so I hear.Remember that heart attack I had during mass and how pissed I was I didn't get whisked to glory straight away after receiving Communion? I mean, come on! I was *so* close. That means I have to continue to try and behave myself and be on daily guard... like everybody else. Of … [Read more...]
