We are moving, because I say so. I can't be having with the faff of cookie clashes between the login for blogger and my real-life gmail account. Now I've tried it a bit I've found that Wordpress is actually a bit of a pain for posting, but hey, we can always move back. Huge hassle to move the links and so on, but niver mind.
A Central European friend rang me yesterday. She had been speaking to an learned friend of hers who recently spoke to the Holy Father. The Pope said that the Motu Proprio 'has already been on my desk several times' and that he too is surprised it is all taking so long. I'm not sure if this is good news or bad news or what 'on my desk several times' might mean.
I was watching the BAFTAs the other day (coz my little sister made me) and I was astounded to discover that Richard Curtis CBE producer of such saccharine classics as Notting Hill and Love Actually and Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus Augustus founder of the greatest empire the world has ever known are actually the same person! I'm off to find out if Ben Elton looks like Marcus Agrippa.
Clarificatory: in response to comments to Living Scotland post - the Mass will be at 5pm, followed by the talk (so 6.15 or so). Drinks to follow around 7/7.30pm. St Andrew's Church is on Belford Road, just past the Dean Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art. It's about fifteen minutes' walk from Haymarket Station.
Map here (NB The red circle here is a bit far to the south east - St Andrew's is in the corner of Belford Road and Ravelston Terrace. If you change to 'arial' view you will see it as terracotta-coloured amidst greenery.)
As the map should make clearer, it is also handy for Queensferry Road. The only bus that goes along Belford Road is the very infrequent 13 (and the free Gallery bus!), whereas lots (37, 41, 47 etc) go along Queensferry Road.
