Kidding, I know that's "Vidalia," but Charles in Visalia has some excellent posts on his blog.
The first makes it sound as if we shared a confirmation this year.... (and also share a certain... frustration? malaise? dunno.)
And the second is a review of the Yes-I-Wanna-Read-It--But-I'd-Rather-Pay-The-Mortgage-Book-By-Fr-Ruff.
I'd comment there and thank him for his always interesting, however bosky prose, but his blog doesn't seem to like me, or perhaps my ISP.
Edit - links corrected (I hope)
