reading and working, at the v. pleasant house where I am staying, near the EWTN TV studios on the outskirts of Birmingham, Alabama. I am still busy with the Crusades, excellent article by Fr Nicholas Schofield in Faith magazine v. useful.
Stopped for a while to look at some TV...not having a television set at home I enjoyed tapping away at handset while sipping mug of cocoa....golly, what a lot of drivel there is out there. But a lengthy trawl produced some goodies: quantities of news-n-comment things of course on the forthcoming Inauguration, some dated but amusing British comedy stuff (what kind of impression of Britain do Americans get?), a glimpse of some soap operas abounding in cliches.
EWTN shows up rather well. Some features are definitely worthwhile, eg Marcus Grodi on "Coming Home' - genial, well-informed. (He has a website too - try here).
