Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Pope TV

Izzy left me a message this afternoon that he was at church watching "Pope TV." I headed over to join him after work (we don't get EWTN on our basic cable) and saw the end of Vespers and the entire speech with follow-up questions. Good stuff, that I'll need to digest (or read others' comments on.) Nice crowd, including Bro. Mattheus and featuring BOGO wine.

We've now just watched Colbert's excitement about the Papal visit. Happy Bday in Latin (not Izzy's classical pronunciation...)

In between? All Creatures Great and Small (while I typed the bulletin & updated the website.) We've just finished the original All Creatures series via Netflix. I just didn't feel up to the Dems debate tonight. The last one I watched (was it February? I know I was on the road) just felt unpleasant. Maybe that's inevitable when you're down to two candidates -- it's not like anyone (Edwards? Gravel?) is left to triangulate... So we watched "nice TV."

More Pope TV after work tomorrow (likely via the interweb.) I'll be in SQL training all day. Ora pro mea.

I'm enjoying Pope TV, too.

By SQL, I hope you don't mean "Structured Query Language". If so, you are certainly in my prayers.

Sadly, that's exactly what I meant. We also spent time in T-SQL (transact sql.) They showed us lots of things we could do with a data set, but not all of us have the sort of access to our main data reporting system that would be needed to do the analysis possible with tsql or sql. Last year they installed SAS on my computer, and have yet to afford me an opportunity to learn it or play with it on a data set.

I'm pretty good at solitaire...
