Just returned from Tallinn. The trip last only about four days but it started to feel rather homely. I'd like to go back. I wonder if it feels always like this after travelling abroad.

New Forum Records from January...

Most new topics in one month - 795 (previous high was 729)
Most new members in one month - 184 (previous high was 145)

We also just barely missed new records in 1) total number of posts in one month, and 2) total number of page views in one month.

Being of Irish descent, here is what I learned about being Irish in the American grade school system:

It is better to dead than red on the head.

If that guy can find a woman to marry him, maybe there's hope for me yet! ;D

I read this on facebook and had to share it:

A man and wife were getting divorced and fighting for custody of their child. The woman told the judge, "I gave birth to this child with much pain and suffering. It came from my own womb, and therefore I deserve custody." So the judge looked at the man and asked, "What do you have to say about this?" The man said, "Your honor, if I put a dollar in a vending machine and a can of soda comes out, who does the soda belong to, me or the machine?" ;D

The recent slough of photos with a distinctively political message has been moved to Politics. If you don't yet have access to the private forum but would like to see these photos, please send Fr. Chris a private message to request this access. Thank you.

Thank you. They are neither clever, well executed, nor "edgy". Derivative boring garbage.

That is true, in my personal experience...at least frog legs taste like chicken.

What do spotted owls taste like?

Ate plenty of frog legs, but never owl. Wonder what one tastes like inside the other.
