St. Columban Restoration Project






(Click on the image above to go to our St. Columban site)



In 2005, a group of descendants decided to start a fundraising effort to repair an old Irish cemetery in the

Town of St. Columban

– located about 40 miles N/W of Montreal.




After 5 years of efforts, on July 3rd 2010, the group was able to unveil the project

that included inserting broken headstones into three (3) walls.


The project is on-going.

Monthly Discussion Salon


On the 15th of each and every month for more than 20 years, I have hosted an Open Discussion Salon at my home.


Over the years, there have been more than 100 participants with a core average group of about 30 people.


The group discusses a wide range of issues such as Current Events; Philosophical ideas


We find the Art of Conversation, in the age of e-mail technology, to be stimulating especially when the particpants have different but passionate ideas about a given subject.


On this site we have a special Forum section dedicated to these types of discussions. You must be a member of my blog to log in.


Then by clicking on Home and then on Forums, you will be directed to an area where you can reply to a topic - or post your own topic.
