    Nathan inspired me to get my camera out, so here I am fooling around with it again. This is part of my back yard. Do you see the humming bird at the hummingbird feeder?

    A little late posting the pictures

    But I graduated. Now I am starting Graduate School and should be done by Winter of 2009 with course work, but Spring of 2010 with my Master's Exam.

    These two years will be fun :roll:

    Thank you...Masters of American and English Literature. I wish Marquette University had Masters of English Linguistics, but there is no such degree. The Master's Exam tests three areas: English Literature to 1600, English Literature from 1601 to Present, and American Literature. The test requires me to select two out of the three areas and within each area I have to write certain types of argumentative essays (a total of 7 hours!)...blah blah blah

    It all equals a piece of paper and a handshake :?

    I happened to know about this as the story is decribed in Mario Puzo's novel The Family, a riveting chronicle of the life of the Borgia pope Alexander VI.

    it's unfortunate that the papacy has been tarnished by greedy families and their feuds and power struggles. I can see why Dante placed some popes in hell. :lol:

    You have to realize that in those days popes had as much power as many a king or emperor, including their own operational armies. They were probably no better or worse than the average feudal ruler - though they should have been way above that of course. Anyway the current popes have lavishly apologized for all that, so it's ok now :wink:

    I'm afraid you missed the latest news: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_affair (go to "Modern church views" paragraph). Juufa, Dante Alighieri would still have much work to do, these days.

    Ha, not so much news here. It was clear from the start that Ratzinger is not on a par with his predecessor, and may take the catholic church back to a more conservative age.
