Back from the Weekend

So, what's up?
Does anyone here care about the DaVinci Code? Did you do the "othercott" thing and see Over the Hedge?

I (finally) got a chance to read my Gilbert magazine front to back, and liked GKC's response to "Concerned About What People Are Reading"'s question (in the "Chesterton's Mail Bag" feature, which I enjoy reading--someone is very clever to dig through GK's stuff and come up with these questions!) about whether or not to condemn Da Vinci Code.

  4. Paul: I'm just about to make a post...

  5. Congratulations to your graduating eighth grader!

  6. Thanks everyone. I thank you, and my daughter thanks you. I suppose my husband thanks you, too, as he had something to do with the fact that we have a 14 year old in the house. :-) We are all proud of her.
