Fact of the Day: Catherine of Alexandria

According to the early Christian churches, Catherine of Alexandria was a "princess" and converted-Christian who converted many herself to the faith. The legend claims that the Roman Emperor Maximian had 50 of his best Pagan philosophers debate her and that she ended up "winning" the debate. However at the age of 18, she was murdered as a martyr by a Pagan Rome. However modern scholars doubt she existed as her story (along with the time she was supposed to have lived) is very similar to that of Hypatia, though Hypatia was a pagan who was murdered by Christians.

Shameless (TV Series) Season 1 Review

 Shameless is a series I heard of a few years ago. I don't think it was on Netflix at the time, so I didn't think I'd be able to see it anyway. But it is on Netflix now, and I needed a new TV series to watch, so Shameless was the top leading candidate for me to pick. It's based on a very popular UK TV series of the same name (including same names for the majority of the characters as well) though the UK series was almost over by the time the American show began.

This was not long ago when my niece Little K went to Chuck E. Cheese. Like any kid her age, the place is like heaven to her.

Photo: Little K and Grandma and Troll Doll

I guess my niece wanted her troll doll in the picture, but as she gets older, I will say my niece Little K looks more like my mother than the rest of my nephews/nieces.
