In January, TLC ran what amounted to an hour-long infomercial for the dog cloning industry called “I Cloned My Pet”. Apparently, they did it again with “I Cloned My Pet 2” last week. I didn’t watch it, but John Woestendiek suffered through it and had a few words to say about it: I was going to stay silent and let … Read More

MJ makes some great points here (h/t Julie): “If you’re not a bulldog about your career and that’s not your thing, it’s almost like you’re marginalized.” I hear that. Reminds me of this old post from Jenny Uebbing recounting a conversation she had with a friend of hers on why she, a smart, well educated young woman, could possibly want … Read More

ChelseaPrayer1 Comment

To finish things you have to start them. —It seems a truism. But you so often lack that simple decision! And… how satan rejoices in your ineffectiveness! -St. Josemaria Escriva, Furrow #492 Getting started is always the hardest part about writing for me. St. Francis De Sales, pray for us!

Not that I thought this was going to be a piece of cake, but, wow. I was not planning on taking an entire week off blogging, but I just haven’t had much time to sit down long enough to do any significant writing or even a short blog post in the past week.

TOB Tues: Should Women Wear Bikinis?

ChelseaModesty, Women5 Comments

This is something I’m slowly coming around on. Not that I have ever strongly believed that women should wear bikinis or that it doesn’t matter if they do, it’s just not something I’ve really thought a whole lot about and developed a strong opinion on one way or another. Bikinis are just the normal, socially acceptable kind of bathing attire … Read More
