Greetings all, yes, I am still alive. The internet connection here is spotty at best, due to the fact that the router is down the ways at the family home (we're up at the brother's newly built house, just next door) and the signal has to pass through thick concrete walls to get to us!
I haven't much time right now, I hope to find some time tomorrow to bring the laptop down to the family home and work a bit on here. Tonight, in just an hour or so, is Fr. Bernard Healy's First Mass of Thanksgiving!! I must go and get ready, but needless to say I will keep you all in my prayers.
