A Spot Of Blogger...

I do enjoy blogging. It's a whole new way to get to exchange information and ideas. This was really brought home to me at the Summer Session when I was introduced to several people by mutual friends as "Mulier Fortis"... and it turned out that they read my blog, although many don't comment, or blog themselves. I was delighted to meet up with Orthfully Catholic, but, since I only twigged who he was on the last day, I didn't get to buy him a pint. Anonymity has its drawbacks!

I was also told about many other good blogs people read - most of them were already known to me, but there were a few that I hadn't heard of. I shall explore further in due course. But two which came up in conversation a few times were both blogs by seminarians: Northampton Seminarian and East Anglia Seminarians. These chaps are the priests of tomorrow: they need our prayers and support, so pop over and say hi.

I also noticed a new blog in the com-box while I've been away: Philip Andrews writes a blog called "Carpe Canum"... my Latin is almost non-existent, and I somehow doubt that it means "grab the dog" so if anyone could enlighten me, I'd be very grateful!!

Well your Latin translation is just as off as mine: I think it means "Seize the Elderly", but that can't be right!

(Canis = Dog)

I like blogs by Seminarians; Northampton Seminarian is good. :)

Ma - I seem to recall that carpe diem is seize the day, and cave canum is beware of the dog... which is how I got to "grab the dog"...
;-)

A quick google search suggests that it does indeed mean 'dog', as in the phrase "Multitudo canum, mors leporis".

Good to see you're back in action, Mac.

Well, maybe he has a secret with to be a dog-trainer!

LOL. I hope it means 'Sieze the Dog'. Being a dog lover, I thought the play on words of sieze the Day and sieze the Dog might be a little different. What can I say... I love to cause confusion! ;-)

I'd come across Northampton Seminarian, but am now enjoying East Anglia Seminarians. Thanks for the post.
