Welcome Brigid.

"We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete." Benedict XVI May 13, 2010

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

Welcome!
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.”

Welcome to the forum; I like your list of favorite movies; Gone with the Wind and Arsenic and Old Lace. Cary Grant was great in the second and Vivian Leigh in the first. If you have never read "GWTW"; its much better than the movie, I just couldn't put it down.
"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

Welcome! Yes, Gone With the Wind is an excellent book, and audio book.

Welcome to the forum.  I like many of the books you listed, so we have that in common. 

I remember watching Monk and liking it at the time.  I wonder if I still would, since I have noticed my tastes have changed.  I still like the theme song.


I see you have grandchildren.  I am expecting my 10th to be born any day now and I like being a grandmother very much.  There are not a lot of grandmothers here on the forum, so I am happy to see another one joining.

Brigid, please take note of what I said in my post to CF Mathews:

There is a subforum for female members only that you can join by asking Kaesekopf, the owner/moderator.  It is not very active now, but we have had good discussions there in the past.

Thank you all for your warm welcomes!

Jayne - I will look to joining the women's subform. Thanks. Wow! 10 is a lot of grandchildren! I find myself hard pressed to get good, quality time in with 4. But you are so right! Being a grandmother is a "peak" experience. My oldest grandson has some mental health difficulties at the moment and is having a lot of trouble seeing the positives in life (as teens do anyway). I assured him of light at the end of the tunnel and that even if there were nothing else, that being a grandparent was worth it all!

Michael - I'm not sure if I've read GWTW or not. I think not, but I should be able to get that at the library, even if this library isn't that great.
