Instead of something funny this Friday, I offer you something FABULOUS!

I don’t know where I was when this piece originally aired on CBS’s 60 Minutes (oh yes, now I remember, doing final editorial revisions on my novel) but I am thrilled to have discovered it and to share it with you.  The video segment offers a marvelous glimpse into the Vatican Library, a storehouse of innumerable treasures of Western Civilization (and I DO mean innumerable –turns out no one can definitively list every book, map etc that is in the library).

I wonder how Henry VIII would feel about the Pope possessing some of his love letters to Anne Boleyn.  My guess—he wouldn’t be thrilled—but I was thrilled to see them, even if it was only on my computers screen.

Enjoy your twelve minute tour of the Pope’s private library.

  1. I believe that avoiding refined foods is the first step to help lose weight. They will often taste good, but packaged foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take more in order to have enough power to get with the day. When you are constantly ingesting these foods, converting to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more vigor while having less. Interesting blog post.
