Hi everyone!
« on: September 06, 2019, 11:16:20 PM »
What brings you to SD?

Well, I a member on a well known Catholic board that tends to be a little rough on those who lean conservative.  I sense that this board will be ok with that.

Are you a member of other Internet fora?  If so, care to mention which one(s)?

Why did you choose your username and avatar?

The LOTR saved my life so to speak when I was in middle school long ago.  Escape when I needed it the most.

What is your state of life - single, married, religious, or still discerning?

I am single, and likely to remain so.  Why? Well I have a touch of aspergers, that and my radar usually zero's in on people who need rescuing.  That doesn't work for me to well.

Whereabouts do you live "in real life"? (be as specific or as general as you wish!)
The northern Atlanta suburbs

Personality type?  A busy type B. 

Favorite books? LOTR, Catholic books, usually written by or about one of the Saints.  Non-fiction

Favorite movies?  The Lion in Winter

English murder shows like Foils War and Midsumer Murders

Favorite sports/teams  Falcons, Auburn, Notre Dame

Have any hobbies? Junk shops

Pet peeves: passive aggressive behavior / speech

Welcome! :toth:

Asperger's is not an impediment to marriage.  My daughter who is an Aspie, married a fine Catholic man who loves her to death.  They will be married 8 years on the first of next month.

If it is God's will, you may meet someone.  All in His time.
I love Thee, Jesus, my love.  Grant me the grace to love Thee always, and do with me what Thou wilt.

Welcome to the forum! I am also a big fan of LOTR, both the books and the movies; at one point I had read the books so many times, that I couldn't look at them any more, but the movies bought me back to reading pieces of them. One day, I will read them one more time.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Are you getting ready for international bench press day, i.e. Monday? I know I am. Do you even lift, bro?

Welcome to the forum. May our Lord and Lady be with you.

Thanks for the welcome folks!

I stopped counting the number of times I read the LOTR after 8.  It seemed embarrassing at that point.  Then I too stopped.  I do still drag out the movies though.  I must say they did a good job save omitting the chapter when Gandalf confronts Sauruman at Orthanic and of course the parlay between the Captains of the West and Suron's Lieutenant at the Black gate of Mordor.

As far as lifting weights... the last time I did that was during Obama's first term!

Welcome! I'm sure you'll be a wonderful addition to the gang here.

 :cheeseheadbeer:
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Ah, you're a crossfitter. Got it.
