Yes, that was in my original message: 

* lvextend --size +12g /dev/BrodieVG/home
* ext2online /dev/BrodieVG/home

lvextend increased the logical volume, and ext2online grew the ext3 
filesystem to use the new space. ext2online is like ext2resize, 
except that it works on a live filesystem; you don't have to 
unmount it to grow it.
