At last

The wayward webmaster returns...for Fish Fry season. Many thanks to all the visitors we've been having.

If you've contributed information, please note, I am working on it. Grad school, full-time employment and a grade schooler in addition to a hobby or two has kept me very, very busy.

'Tis the Fish Fry season!

Yes, it's that time of year again, and I didn't forget. I've just been a tad busy working and going to school.

Don't forget...we will profile a few of St. Louis's fries right here, but we're always looking for reviews, so send them in!

The Ultimate Fish Fry Compendium keeps getting more and more hits every year. People are really looking for good places with good fish to eat.

Here are a few of the items I've gotten in the Fish Fry mailbag. Thank you all for contributing and I will post these to the site as soon as I can.

St. Louis, MO has the latest and greatest in sustainable culture and fish at www.fridaynightfish.com

Thanks to Ed Vielimetti in Ann Arbor, MI check out the best in this part of Michigan at the Ann Arbor Fish Wiki

Help Haiti

As you may already know, the good people of Massachusetts, from a previous St. Boniface parish, set up the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, which is mentioned in our Links section at www.stbonifaceonline.com. This charity has a four-star rating at Charity Navigator, which grades charitable organization on things like use of funds, etc.

Please help them if you can, especially in light of the recent earthquake. If you would like to contribute to their organization, check out their website.

Happy New Year

Yes, 2009 was a busy one for me, personally and professionally. Please excuse the dearth of posts. A few updates are needed.

1. We lost a very important former member of the St. Boniface community in October 2009. Hildegarde Dierker Eiler passed away. Some of you may remember her from church for her interesting hats, or you may have known her when she worked at Southern Commercial Bank for many years.

Hildegarde was from one of the earliest St. Boniface parish families and she was a very generous person. Hildegarde provided me with lots of historical details that are present in the www.stbonifaceonline.com website. She was 99 years old.

2. I posted in early 2009 that Jenni Brandel set up the St. Boniface group on Facebook and we had a whopping 40 members. I'm happy to report that, as of today, there are 211 members. Spread the word, folks, and let all of your friends know about it. You'd be surprised who's out there, all over the country.

3. We are still getting a great response from the Ultimate Fish Fry compendium. To all of the folks throughout the country sending in suggestions and feedback, thank you. Got one? Send it!

I will be updating the site in time for Lent, which this year starts on Ash Wednesday, February 17.

Have a great new year!
