Some meme! I could have figured out those ten honest things about you on my own, Cavey--which is probably entirely the point. ;) Here in the Catholic Cave, what we see is what we get.

Eternal Father, Strong to Save has been my favorite hymn since I was a small Navy brat. I love, love, love that song.

VSC,

I regard this as a compliment, and so I thank you for offering it to me. But, outside of my religion and politics, I am a very private person ... and I sincerely doubt I could come up with 10 honest things about myself without going outside of those.

So while I certainly appreciate the gesture, I'm going to pass on the honor.

Marine - It is an honor to be chosen for this award. Thank you. I have been only blogging for a few months and do not have that many posts, but I have a monster-sized article that is to be posted soon.

Also, I very much like the notion of an "honest scrap". The term sums up perfectly my approach - I dish things out rough, but also TH2 can take a many kicks in the face as well... then I get up, shake hands, and continue onward.

I will do my post for this award within a day, and you will be included in my list of seven.

Cheers, TH2.

PS. Do not worry too much about not watching football anymore. Why not try watching/playing hockey ? Now that is a real man's game.

TH2, Now you are a very intelligent fellow. Try Hockey Caveness, it is a real man's game.

SV, "Hockey Caveness" - please explain. Forgive my slowness, my mind is locked in 1st gear today.
