Flipsyde - Happy Birthday

Says it all


Here in the UK we have been caught up in the debate on who we would vote for if we were in the US - MCain or Obama - Obama because he has social values and is for peace or McCain because we are pro-life. It's been quite hard with arguments on both sides, the youth favouring Obama I think especially for peace. But for me the quote by Mother Theresa (top left) made it clear - "how can we tell other people (Obama) not to kill one another - if we can accept that a mother can kill her own child."

You have a choice with whom to sleep with, and the choice to discuss what actions both parties would take should a pregnancy occur. You have a choice to carry to term and adopt. You have a choice not to have sex, or to take steps to prevent pregnacy and STCs (Sexually transmitted viruses)
A woman has a choice. The baby has no choice except what choice you make for it.


How can I be anything but against abortion and for protection of the innocent.

Bloggers respond

I would like to know why there is such a strong feeling/emotions from the pro-choicers against the pro-lifers? Any thoughts?

You Tube

There are all sorts of nefarious videos out on You Tube but I do find it useful for catching up on any nostalgic trips down memory lane or picking up some old EWTN favourites. However, I have see there is a clip out on You Tube for a comedian who is using 'abortion' for his comic routine. Now I don't mind satire and I know there are whole web sites out there dedicated to satirising Christians - we must make good fodder for them! But surely even some subjects should be off limits to a comedian. I cannot see anything funny in this subject and there must be a wealth of good material out there for a comedian with any talent. Nobody would find the subject of paedophilia or child pornography funny when innocent children are being exploited - there must be some limits otherwise we might all as well have been born with four feet instead of two!

I see that they are selling elderly masks for halloween in Woolworths - that is good as I will be able to go out as myself! "Ask Sister Mary Martha" on her Blog thinks nuns can be pretty scary especially to small children - so perhaps I could go out dressed as an elderly nun for halloween. 'Nun' offence intended!

Joanna is going to Butlins next week with the family.


Snippets - Fish

Had a bit of a clean around the kitchen last week. Sparked off by the Edam smelling out the fridge and having to take everything out and clean the whole fridge because my house smelled like a cheese factory when you opened the front door. This coupled with the smell of the dog who really need to go to the beauty parlour and the left over cat meat was not very pleasant. Decided also I had better wash out the water filter jug as it had turned a lovely shade of green as my kitchen gets lots of sun and resembled the fish tank on the other side of the kitchen – which also needs cleaning. And discovered that the bottom of the jug was also a lovely black colour (on the outside I hasten to add!). I think it’s safer to drink bottled water at my house or probably drink out of the fish tank!

Snippets of Life - Mistaken Identity

Had a rather bizarre conversation with a woman in our local church the other Sunday morning who I thought knew me but was talking half the time in a foreign language, perplexed but not put off (as I have a Spanish friend who does this!) I carried on responding in English. Then she introduced me to another man, Robert, saying this is Michelle and she speaks French! And them proceeded to tell me that his ‘famille en France’ in French again! Too perplexed by this time to put her right I nodded and smiled and scurried off to find a seat and make a mental note to go to my normal Parish Church next time where people KNOW me! I was hoping that the real Michelle didn’t turn up or I could be accused of impersonating a French woman. Worse, next week if Robert met me he may well try and converse with me in French. I’ll have to keep my head down in town - either that or brush up on my school book French. Pardonne moi – je m’appelle Joanna! It was a bizarre day – I’ve also been tagged as a…

The Simplicity of the Catholic Faith


Joanna is baptised a Catholic 7 years tomorrow! How time flies! I can't believe it has been that long and yet there is so much still to pray, read, learn and do! Clearly the person who accepts the Church as an infallible guide will believe whatever the Church teaches. — Saint Thomas Aquinas
