So I originally grew up in CT and went out to OH for college. I met my wife there and we were going to move to CO because she had a job lined up but it fell through so we moved to NY to live with her…Continue

The beatified samurai named Zaisho Shichiemon, who accepted baptism despite the express prohibition of his master. He was ordered to renounce his faith. Zaisho replied, "I would obey in any other matter, but I…"
"Hi Neil -
Two grown kids here, and my wife and I adjusting to having adult children.
I would concur that reading is great!! I read to my wife before children (to help her fall asleep at night) and then to our kids. I might still read to…"

"Hey Neil! I'm 48 (til next week), have 3 kids - 18 y.o. boy, 15 y.o. girl and 12 y.o. girl - so it's pretty challenging at times dealing with basically 3 teenagers. I really had to learn how to transition my parenting from one of control…"

This is one of the best sites on the Internet for talking with…"
"Hi Neil! Great to see you on AOM. I am 46, married with 2 girls. One is off at college and the other is in high school. I concur with you about the older fellas teaching the younger. It's a Biblical example as…"

"Au contraire, mon frere.
Speaking as someone who has a lot of tattoos, who is coincidentally a Catholic--the two things are almost completely unrelated--I can only offer the following personal observations:
1. Tattoos, having tattoos and seeing…"
"Officially there is no canon law about tattoos. While there is the notion of treating your body as a temple for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, there is not really an ecclesiastical ruling.
A reason it may be frowned upon by Catholics is because…"
"Street cred isn't as useful as job interview cred, at least to most of us.
And isn't it bizarre that something as irrelevant as ink on the skin would give "credibility" to anyone, except the artist who did the work? Having…"
