Question from a newbie re: my rose bush (Sharon's Delight)

I am in a new home and this rose bush is climbing a fence along my front drive. You can click the link for a picture.

I cut it back last year and the homeowner told me it wouldn't bloom again for 2-3 years. It is already as big as it was last fall, and blooming beautifully :)

My question is - and I know very little about gardening and nothing about roses - can I do something with the half dozen stalks I cut back?

Thanks in advance for any tips, links, etc.

WRONG place. I hate it when I do that. Even if no one else is looking!
