In this episode, the worries of a 4 and a 46 year old, prayer and ATC, feedback and talk about feedback, Catholic News and a 60 Second Saint.  We also briefly mention the stupidity of a couple of judges for good measure!

 

On the Eunice and Owen Johns Case, further information is available here: http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/commentandblogs/2011/03/02/the-eu-has-made-its-secularism-clear-is-that-now-what-the-judges-have-done-for-the-uk/

For Billy Newton’s Blog entry on feedback, see ‘Apples and Oranges’ at: http://theblogofthecourtier.blogspot.com/

Today’s Sixty Second Saints are St Romanus and St Lupicinus.  If you’d like to send a 60 Second Saint, I’d love to get it – either in about 230 words or via an MP3 file (love the former, adore the latter!), just email it to the feedback address.

There’ll be no Just A CAtholic Dad next week due to work commitments (pesky pilots!)

60 Second Saint – Go On, Go On, Go On…!

21/12/2010

Hi Everybody!  Hope that your Advent is leading very nicely through Office Parties and into Christmas!  Pat Denny wisely pointed out that if I wanted people to have a go at writing or recording a 60 Second Saint, a list of those saints already covered was probably a good idea!  So, so far, we’ve had….

St Seraphia, St Rosalia, St Laurence Justinian, St Wilfrida of Wilton, St Hubert, St Albert Magnus, St John of The Cross, St John of Damascus and St Lucy.  Remember – 230 words is about a minute at Sean Warp Factor 10 reading speed!  So, either send me a ‘script’ or, even better, an MP3!  Don’t worry about the music or if it’s a little over or under 60 seconds – I can use the magic of modern computery wizardness to fix that!

I’m going to try to record a Just A Catholic Dad tomorrow morning, but time is against me, so wish me luck!

God Bless

Tomorrow is the audit of my airport ATC Unit’s Local Competency Scheme by the UK ATC Regulator – the Safety Regulation Group.

Just A Catholic Dad 18 – Temporarily lost in the Cybervoid

21/10/2010

Thinking about it, that’s a good title for the next JACD…if I can somehow engineer the content to fit!  Sorry for no JACD 18 this week, but all my bumpers (and just about everything else) are lost in the cybervoid due to my Network Drive imploding!  I’m slowly retrieveng everything, but due to time I’m nor going to get the chance to record this week.  School vacation next week is also going to place a spanner in the works, so please bear with me.

In the meantime, if you have any feedback, I would dearly love to read/hear/eat it (prizes to the first who figures out how to do that one!).  Please leave a comment here or contact me at feedback@justacatholicdad.com.

God Bless
