It's been quite some time since I've last posted and, frankly, if I could say one thing to Mr. Ray, it would be, "I love what you've done with the place!" Believe me, I have not forgotten this treasure-trove of apologetic and theological insights. As a matter of fact, I direct folks to this website almost all the time! I simply figured, if I'm going to be accessing the content, then I might as well start posting on the Message Board again. So ... let's see ... what's happened since the last time I posted: (1) I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Print Journalism and a contract-minor in Music Industry. (2) I married a beautiful woman named Carrie in February of 2010 and she and I are expecting a brand new addition sometime in November. (3) I joined the Army National Guard here in Alabama and will be attending OCS in Jan. (not the original plan, but still "OK"). (3) My wife and I will graduate Grad school this coming December, which works out perfectly with the OCS option. (4) I got a job writing for the local paper here in Troy, AL. and aspire to do a lot more with my writing (not necessarily here in Troy ... also, a little more Catholic would be nice!). (5) A whole bunch of other really good stuff ... with the exception of my thinning head of hair. :( I'm not surprised though. I was told this day would come! Anyway, I keeping up with the Message Board and look forward to many riveting conversations!

faithfulservant,
I remember you too, good sir! The Pillar of Fire, Pillar of Truth booklets came in handy and I thank you very much for sending them. How have you been?

Domincatella,
Thanks! I'm still quite nervous at the prospect of being a new Daddy! It's coming at me pretty quickly. I've been told I should catch up on sleep now, because once our little bundle of joy arrives, I won't get much of it.
