Blog name...

Discernment continues on a name.

Since "cigar aficionado" is already taken, I would vote for something beyond the scope of "Wurtz" variations. Perhaps Cape & Cord as a Holy Cross reference? Maybe The Roman Domer? -N

Wurtz - I never voted . . . I was overwhelmed by the options. Since the blog is meant to focus on keeping your friends and family updated on goings-on in your life, especially while in Rome, I think a Wurtz associated name is best. I liked Words of Wurtz.
(That said, Nate, Cape & Cord is an AWESOME name, which I think could be used by any number of us for Holy Cross themed entries.)

Maybe the shores of Land O'Lakes will inspire us.

Sorry to hear about the inane Detroit journey: I hope you found the time in the car to be decent for some extended music-listening or somesuch.

As to the blog name, while I also agree that "Cape and Cord" has a certain ring to it, I might also suggest just leaving your standby up for awhile and letting the experience of journaling in this way sink in for a bit – to not rush the naming. I think mine took a while to make itself clear to me, but it also took awhile for the experience of blogging (on the more flexible, customizable, visually-exciting and interesting LiveJournal – it's still not too late for you to switch! :-) Sorry. Couldn't resist.) to become all that it would become for me.

I really do think that this is something I'm in for life on, now, as a way of keeping that public letter to friends and family going, as well as journaling for my own sake. For that reason I bought a lifetime account as an act of faith and long-term economic prudence. So, let it ride for a bit and see what it becomes for you. Themes – and names – have a way of bubbling to the surface in our lives, as you well know. I think that may hold true for this as well. When you simply know the blog name rather than having to choose one, then you'll know you've got the right name.
