This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

Today I am grateful for a great Dad: a little league coach, a provider, an English teacher, a worker, a Private (medic) in the Army, a lector, a cantor, a Cursillista, a Catholic, a lover of the outdoors, loved our Mom, a guy who tried to make our lives full and fun and meaningful, a father of eight plus five, a great golfer and golf coach, a man who tried. A great Dad.
Thanks for the sympathy prayers Meg. I noticed I've slipped to 24th place out of 188 who have played Trivia this week. Something must be wrong with the scoring though, because I really think I should be in the top ten. Someone ought to look into that.
You knocked me out of 24th place!! I am now in 28th place!!
I'm telling you Helen, something's up with the scoring. I can't prove it, but there's no way I should be worse than ninth overall. Like I say I have no proof, but it wouldn't shock me if there was a massive conspiracy to knock me out of the top ten. All I can say is that I'm pretty good at Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, so if that's not proof enough I don't know what is.
Also I was very good at spelling bees.
Sorry about bumping you down to 28th.
Meg, Thanks so much for making me feel appreciated/welcome here. I'm really enjoying CM as my subscription winds to an end this week, yet I do feel it's time to move on to the next thing, whatever that may be.
My girlfriend says that I'm going to miss this, and she's probably right, but I just think the time is right.
Who knows, maybe they'll have a free posting weekend, and if I become aware I will jump in the fora and say hello.
