I wanted you to know I saw Father Averky just before his repose in the Lord, he spoke very fondly of everyone on Monachos and with much love particularly for you.
Anyway, many of us are quite fond of you and have been praying for you. It's great that you are back, no laptops in boot camp? How was the food?

The food sucked. Thank you for the prayers they must have worked because I was made a US Marine on Thursday. So thank you again, and I cant wait to hear all the good converstations going on here.

For quite awhile now I have wondered what LOL (which you have written in your post) meant in "online talk". I finally went to the Google Dictionary and followed the link of acronyms. Here is what I found:
Acronym Definition @Amazon.com
1.LOL Laugh Out Loud
LOL Laughing Out Loud
3.LOL Lack of Love (game)
4.LOL Ladies of Lallybroch
5.LOL Land O' Lakes
LOL Land of Legends (Canandaigua Speedway, New York)
LOL Land of Lincoln
LOL Language of Literature
LOL Language of Love
10.LOL Last or Least
LOL Laughing On Line
12.LOL Lautes Online Lachen (German: Loud Online Laughter)
13.LOL Lawyers on Line
LoL League of Lightness (gaming clan)
15.LOL League of Losers (wild 17 chess team)
LOL Learn Online
LOL Legend of Legaia (video game)
LOL Legend of Lothian (computer game)
19.LOL Less Of Lip
I am thinking that how you used it in your post was the first meaning(?)
4 would be for Scottish women users; 5 those from Minnesota; 10 used by monastics 12 has a certain dignity to it worthy of the Germanic race. 13. NEVER TRUST THIS ONE 15.my favourite team 19. one of the most common things which people ask me to stop.
Once again- welcome back. Although maybe after reading this you'll pack your bags & run for the bus again.

I was only supposed to be home for 10 days boot camp leave, but now ill be home for alot longer since my school is very very physical nothing but physical activity, and I can barley walk around my house. So pray for my recovery.

My name is Scott Hays. I've been lurking for awhile and decided to join.
I was chrismated Holy Saturday 2003 at the Orthodox Chapel at Lackland AFB here in San Antonio, TX. I received the name, Nicholas. The last few months I've been attending St Anthony the Great Orthodox Church. Fr Dimitri Cozby is the priest.
I am married and have an 11 year old son. They attend a non-denominational church.
I am in the Air Force and currently live in San Antonio, but will move to Colorado Springs in April. I plan on attending Ss Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church there.
I have been blessed reading the posts in this forum and look forward to getting to know all the posters better.

God bless you, and welcome to Monachos. I will tell you, all people whom I have met who have been blessed to have been given the name Nicholas have very full lives in the Church, and receive many blessings from their heavenly patron. I know, for before monasticism, my name was Nicholas, and even now, he is so very special to me.
This is a very good forum, and we look forward to what you will bring to Monachos.
