Our Lady of Good Counsel Fall Festival 2009

Key Bridge, Georgetown

Two photographers, same view, two different results. I was on a photowalk with my friend Mike Palmer and we took the same shot with a different eye. See his photo by clicking here. I like his angle better.

Paul Green's School of Rock Music....Really Rocks!

I'm sold on Paul Green's School of Rock Music/Vienna. What a great event. All the kids had tremendous fun at Jammin Java. Their talent runs deep, down to the youngest of the kids. Theme for the night was all Beatles covers. The kids nailed them and the crowd loved it. Chilling to see your child on stage enjoying himself. What he did last night and today I always wished I could do. Great show. Good job Danny!

A Saint on This Earth

Today my wonderful mother celebrated her 75th year. She continues to be an inspiration to many, including her 7 children and 24 grandchildren. When not helping with her newest infant grandchild to her baby, Eileen, you can still find her at the INOVA Fairfax Child Care Center, volunteering for St. Michael's Parish, or doting on her husband of 53 years, Ben, my father, who still worships her every act of kindness. She is our Rock. We love her dearly and couldn't imagine a world without her.

Happy Birthday Mom.

Msgr. John B. Brady, Chaplain

Meet my friend Msgr. Brady. Msgr. lives at the Goshen Scout Reservation outside of Lexington, Va. during the summer months while the boys are in camp. He spends his days walking the Goshen Beltway, visiting the boys in camp to educate them on the importance of living the scout oath, celebrating mass for scouts and leaders, and honing his photography skills, which gives us plenty to talk about.

When not in camp, Msgr. keeps busy with the National Catholic Committee on Scouting and a variety of other duties. He resides in Bethesda.

I always look forward to seeing him and Goshen would not be the same without him.

Our troop usually arrives in large numbers which allows us the opportunity to have our own mass at our campsite. Makes for a very special moment for the boys.

Hand made Rosaries ready for his blessing.
