Quick Tip of the Week: Using Spotlight to locate a file in the Finder

twitter (feed #3) 12:35am Posted 23 tweets on The Pope. (Hide Details)

  • Exhausted. Stayed up far too late. I stuck to smoothies, but a *certain member of the clergy* drank something stronger and was carried away.
  • @Rooley Prayer is a very powerful thing indeed. I can’t take personal credit but I did say a prayer for Slumdog Millionaire! A lovely film.
  • @ajootian Thank you! And how are you today? More energy than me I hope!
  • Greetings to all my new followers, I am very touched by you adding me as a friend. One billion people, plus 1,554 Twitter folk! Wonderful!
  • @TLAvideo Thanks!
  • @sjwaters Do I win a 100th follower Oscar?
  • @xinit0 Oh nothing heavy for me, but sadly the same cannot be said for certain deacons who shall remain nameless.
  • The Oscar party is taking shape here. We have smoothies!
  • @bigmikeh1965 We think that everyone should get an award! I’m up for Best Pope, obviously. I’ll probably win it as I’m in a list of one!
  • Has everybody seen this Indian film called Slumdog Millionaire? Is it worth seeing? I can have a DVD delivered!
  • @ambivalentmonk Small rewards in this life give us hope for the next! Also, it’s great to try and out-do the actors (easy in the Vatican!)
  • @LukeMorrison I don’t exactly feel funny today. It was fantastic staying up late watching the Oscars but I’m feeling it now. We all are!
  • @tislundi @ambivalentmonk @rachelkulik Thanks! I might watch it this evening then!
  • @LukeMorrison God definitely has a sense of humour. He created Charles Darwin, after all!
  • @Irishsmurf Sunday is always a big day. But the Oscars are like Hollywood’s Easter!
  • @Magicide I sincerely hope there are no pictures. Mental image is quite enough. Still, I did like Penelope Cruz’s dress, she looked great!
  • @bigmikeh1965 Your compassion is a blessing and you should not fear to voice your objections to immorality. But then, I would say that!
  • @berchman Not really a fashionista. But I do love good material and I admit to a liking for well-made shoes. We need them in this job!
  • Of course, our real reward is eternal life. But meanwhile, small gold statues!
  • We’re organising our own Oscars! Just for fun.
  • Have a great night everyone, and thank you to my new followers! Lovely to meet you!
  • @bigmikeh1965 I personally have not defended child abusers, which awful problem runs throughout all vocations, sadly including priesthood.
  • @antagonise No, you can’t take it with you. But, you can put it up for auction and raise money for the poor!
