This is important::
the brave parents at the Cardinal Vaughan School need help. This is a fine school and the parents are rallying to its defence: read the saga on that parents' website. They have right and justice on their side, and they deserve support.
Auntie has learned, with mingled pleasure and amusement, that her Blog annoys some people, especially angry dogmatic ones, and entertains and encourages others of a gentler sort. This has confirmed her decision to continue blogging although Auntie's life is busy and she has duties and responsibilities which on the whole she knows to be of more importance.
Auntie enjoys (although not neccesarily in this order)her work (writer, biographer, historian) and domestic duties, academic studies(Maryvale Institute), family, friends, and community responsibilities. She relishes the new translation of the Mass, the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, her own excellent local Catholic parish, traditional hymns (especially, perhaps, Anglican ones) rain, good literature, sleep, the English coast, Autumn, buttered toast, and a number of other things too precious and important to list here. She feels priviledged to belong to a Church which produced John Paul II and Benedict XVI and she finds their teachings an inspiration.
