Ahhh I think I know where I got the link to this forum from, it would be Marion/Maz, we've been in a few forums together and she's much more computer able than me, I'm still a bit of a Luddite :lol: , when I was getting started with the whole internet thing she often used to send me useful links.

Victoria ~ our middle son is at uni in London, which means I've actually been down there a couple of times this last year, I think it seems much nicer these days... I have childhood memories of it being rather grey and grimy, but nowadays the air seems much cleaner and it is such a vibrant place to live!

Pondero~ funnily enough we know quite a few Norfolk Catholics as our youngest son ended up going to Notre Dame High the big Catholic High School in Norwich, normally they only admit Catholics but Our son has special needs ( high functioning autism) and although they had little experience with his specific needs they had a brilliant pastoral care team, which was very important to us all. To help our son I started reading a whole load of Catholic sites and blogs, I learnt an awful lot and have come away with a big respect for Catholicism. Plus our son has had two wonderful visits to Lourdes with the HCPT charity...sometimes we feel like adopted Catholics!

Good for you LilySue. Lourdes does not often cure people physically, but does so spiritually. I have never heard of anyone coming away from Lourdes bitter or upset because he wasn't physically cured. The wife and I have visited Lourdes in the past for our spiritual benefit.

:) Nice to know you know Maz! We often think of her (there's a recent birthday thread for her somewhere).

Yup, Maz is an old mate, most of us have posted with her on and off since about 2002. She now mainly posts on FB so I only hear from her occasionally as I have not yet succumbed to FB (been tempted recently by Sprocket's poetry site but then I think, "What would I have to say?".

Hope you will post a bit more LilySue.

I have Facebook so I keep up a little bit with Marion, but I'm not a prolific FB user so I'm pretty sure I miss some of her updates - I mainly use FB to keep up with parents I know in the autism community.

Victoria-I will try and post a bit more, but I am absolutely no good at theological debate, unlike Maz who is very good at indeed !

It doesn't have to be theological debate, you know. We have sections like Chatterbox where we can discuss all kinds of topics in a non-too serious or specialist way (have a look at the topics on the Index and take your pick!) We also have sections like General Discussion, where we can talk about all kinds of things, including TV and films, which we all like. There's also a games section (Funny Business) and a section where you can share your photos, or whatever, with the others. And, last but not least, Christian sections for prayer and inspirational material without any heavy theological input.

In short, we're user friendly. :D

Well said that man. This forum is for all, not just those who like to talk about faith matters though obviously there are sections for that. Sally set it up for everyone to enjoy.

almost 2 years too late!! (sounds like me in many things :D )
Took me a while to work out who you are - but then I clicked when you mentioned Norwich.
Hope you are well, and the family. I love seeing your posts on Facebook, even though they are few (although cannot be on there much myself in the last 6-12 months). I get fits and spurts of posting - when there's a free afternoon (like now), although, sadly, I am ignoring stuff (paperwork/washing up, mopping etc) that I should be doing - but no energy due to flu/chest infection.

Hope you come back LilySue (hoping you get e-mail notifications for this thread).
