Sunbathers sizzle on Sicily beach as Mount Etna erupts | Mail Online.

I don’t know about you, but if I was vacationing on Sicily and Mt Etna erupted, I would probably be so torn between enjoying the beach and watching a volcano erupt that I’d end up standing in one spot and try and do both at the same time.  Let’s face it, I’m pretty glad I don’t have to make that decision!  (Though maybe that’s just my consolation for not being in Sicily to begin with .. Oh Italy my love!)

 

Happy Sunday.

Do We Need the Internet? | Almost Not Catholic

This morning while eating breakfast, my 5 year-old daughter asked me what “cheerios.com” was for?

So, what was my answer?

“There is no reason, darling.”

 

An interesting perspective on what a lot of people don’t want to say.

 

A whole lotta the internet is useless.

Is She The One? How Do I Know? | The Art of Manliness.

Another good article from Art of Manliness, this time on finding and marrying the right spouse.

The post is geared towards men finding wives, but it’s all applicable to women looking for husbands as well.

“They have a list in their minds of their perfect wife characteristics: hot but not slutty, smart but not nerdy, skinny but a good cook, etc. Unfortunately, no real woman can live up to the fantasy, and these guys stay perpetually single. The second type of guy looks at others’ failed marriages, particularly his own parents, and won’t get married because of the fear of choosing the wrong woman. The truth is that knowing you’ve found the right woman to marry is not rocket science.”
Happy reading.
