Between work and school and so much else, I have hardly written a word here! I am sorry. I have done some blogging over at the Times Union, including a post about our new Pope Francis.

Please come by and read if you wish, leaving your comments there. The post can be accessed by clicking this link.

It was very exciting to be here yesterday, with our church bells pealing wildly to announce this great news. Let us all keep Pope Francis in our prayers!
