Is there anybody out there?

It sure has gotten quiet here of late. Somebody should make a little noise. :clap:

I tried posting something using ViewPure. It does not seem to work anymore. Has anybody else used it recently?

David, maybe the apocalypse has occurred and we're the only two left …
And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
The Gospel of Saint Matthew, 25:40 (NAB)

Almost all of the Viewpure links that have been posted in the past seem to be broken. :pc:

folks,

I have not had much to say here except for trivia, lately. Mostly, because a lot of water has gone under my bridge.

Just the last two weeks it's threatened to take out the bridge: an illness took a turn for the worse, and I was in bed busily throwing my weight on a conflagration in my lower abdomen, for over a week. And in the middle of a move, a look for a place *to which* to move, and trying to sell an apt full of pricey deadweights a roommate left behind. (Long story. But even a golden albatross around your neck, until you sell it, is still just an albatross.)

Hope you're feeling better, Chris. I'll say a prayer or two.

Prayers Chris.

David-You know me, I try to keep quiet. I almost asked a theological question here on Friday and then couldn't remember what it was. I forget to check on here.

I am here :)

Are there no plans for a Catholic Online Forum, then? :confused:

At times it feels like the Twilight Zone but who am I to judge.

This too will pass...

Hi all,

Thank you for your prayers. I recovered early this week, earlier than my nurse-friend feared. But I was ravenously hungry after losing seven pounds, and I have never had extra weight to throw overboard so casually. Wednesday I ate an entire medium pizza in a half hour - thin crust, so it was not as much as it sounds, but still.

Last Friday I relented and, against my nurse-friend's and my own sense of what was wrong, went to an 'urgent care clinic'. They were efficient: hardly any waiting; they were kind of lazy: the phlebotomist couldn't be bothered to find my tiny veins, and told me to go to a lab in town much farther away even tho' I was exhausted just walking the four blocks to the clinic; they were not *perfectly* competent: sample vials I was to fill were, um, unfillable if the 'provider' (not 'doctor') heard me correctly. Generally, they appeared so unconcerned that when I returned to bed I actually was lighter at heart - if they were that dismissive, I thought, I can't be so badly off! The weekend was spent mostly in bed, with bouts of ravenous hunger smelling the kitchen smells in the apt building. So sorry, folks, you still have me to kick around.

So, what do we do about this forum? Can we advertise for members? Re-name the forum? (I've gotten fond of the anti-title: maybe Catholics should promote being off-line more.) Rent out space to a Starbucks?

Sorry... but it brings up a point that you haven't posted much other than music-related stuff for a while on FB. And somehow I've missed if you posted the live cover of your grandson's song. I was looking forward to it.

I haven't recorded a live version yet. I'll try it tomorrow.
