While we're getting started I've got a couple of quick things I want to tell everyone about.

 

We just launched new Facebook integration this morning! You can now link your iReport account up with your Facebook account so that it will automatically post your iReports on your Facebook wall.

 

Here's a link with more details.

Hi Sherbien,

I think you can watch live CNN video on the Android app, so I would think you would be able to watch it.

I know that CNN.com will be streaming it live and that their will be a rebroadcast at noon ET. so you can watch it there if you're near a computer.

In addition to the Royal Wedding, there is a big weekend for Miss Catherine Middleton's birthday on Sunday, May 1st.  The same day celebrates Pope John Paul's Sainthood around the world.

Hi GHung, I saw your iReport about the beatification of Pope John Paul II. We were talking with our belief blog editor about the ceremony.

I'm curious, did anyone ever meet the pope, or see him speak?

That's a good question sbeasla, with a bunch of possible answers. You can never go wrong by ignoring jerks on the internet, but if you feel like you want to respond then that's fine too.

You should also hit the report violation button if you feel like the criticism crosses the line.

@sbesia I find that it is best not to respond to  senseless comments. If there is a legitimate question your report.. then to answer makes sense. Engaging or Defending one's post doesn't end up really working. it seems to make these internet crazies go even crazier!!

I am all for the royal wedding, lord knows we could all use something alittle brighter in our day right now BUT

does anyone remember that this Sunday is the beatification ceremony for Pope John Paul II.  That seems like news that is as important as William and Kate getting married.  I would say more important

Dear David

You asked if someone ever met the Pope or hear him speak. Well I went to Rome and heard him speak a few times and I also sent you guys a report with a photo that I took in 1983 when he came to San Marino. He certainly had a dominant and captivating  personality. Now whether you are or not a  believer you must acknowledge this.

Those 3 reports still haven't been taken out.

Ciao

Annamria
