Today was Ash Wednesday. I received ashes in the morning. The older I get, the less perturbed I am by Lent, the forty days before Easter in which Catholics are normally abstaining from meat on Fridays, as well as giving up "something". I heard a homily last Sunday in which Lent should be thought of as a period of "feasting" on positive things, and "fasting" from negative things. I found the list mentioned in the homily, and it's a wonderful sentiment going into this Lenten season.

I've been busy with my BLOG actually. I finally added two features that I've been meaning to add for quite some time: links and comments.

Each specific entry in this on-line journal can be linked via a URL to the archive page which that entry belongs to. Moreover, the link contains a NAME field, which will also allow direct the browser to the specific entry. I had a heck of a time getting this to work, and I plan to document it later.

But even better than links are comments. Thanks to Blork's Blog, I found Enetation, a web service for hosting comments you may have about any specific entry. Just click on the comments link, and drop a quick line. Your e-mail and web addresses are optional.
