I've added a few new sites to my Friends and Good People blogroll (to the right and below) -- take a minute and check them out!
- The Art of Manliness. Fr. Tyler at Prairie Father introduced me to The Art of Manliness site some years ago. Whatever you'd like to delve into among the masculine and gentlemanly arts, it's here -- from grooming and dressing, to proper tool use and survival skills, to sandwich recipes and a killer series on the history of manly honor. Do yourself a favor, men -- check it out, then bookmark it for your sons.
- House Unseen. Two blogging friends (Laura the Crazy Mama and Andrea at Reconciling Remus and Rome) shared a brilliant post on Natural Family Planning from Dwija at House Unseen (which I myself passed on a few weeks back). I went there, and read this: "We bought a house in rural Michigan sight-unseen off the internet. My husband quit his job in California and we moved our kids across the country. Dogs. Goats. Chickens. Homeschooling. Crazy. I like my sacraments Catholic and my beer cold." I think we could be friends.
- Practical Catholic Junto. An orthodox Catholic take on Benjamin Franklin's club, dedicated to solving practical problems in the community. The blog has more of a political and current events flavor, with occasional, more substantial articles about applied Catholic teaching and Catholic living.
- The Imaginative Conservative. If you've begun to despair that folks have forgotten there is such as thing as a conservative intellectual tradition, go here. They'll make you want to read, write, and think again.
Hope to see you around the neighborhood -- if you visit these sites, let me know what you think!
