Is there a way to find out if your name is on the prayer rolls? Never been a Mormon, I have a sneaky feeling one of my former GFs might still be trying to convert me over to her side.

I need to ask, what difference does it make when a soul enters a body? At the moment of conception, on waking, at birth, when it takes its first breathe, at the age of reason? How will it change your life, what will you do differently when you know when a soul enters a body?

If she takes over RBG seat on the court, that'll make 6 of the 9 will be Catholics. 50 years ago when I first learned about LDS, I was told LDS would be the church of the world in my life time.... not so true yet.

My experience on wild fires, when an area is under an evacuation order, road blocks are set up to keep people out. Generally if someone comes to a road block and says they need to go in for one reason or another, they are turned back. If someone needs something, like medication or medical device, the people staffing will take information like name, address, reason, time they expect to be back

Beth, thank you for thinking about me. All my family and friends are safe and are well prepared for what ever happens. Our nephew and his family lives in Bonney Lake, that Sumner fire was about 1-1/2 miles from their home. They have two small kids, the youngest is just a month old, they took off for Sequim and will stay with his parents. Last year was my 21st year in working in forest

GBS, let it go, don't let your brother direct your life. Be there for your mother, if not now, but soon she'll need your help. You'll be paying back in a small way all she's done for you. What ever your brother says or does is just his immaturity and jealousy and isn't worth worrying about it. I'm sure your mother knows the facts, what she thinks and believes is more important. Besi

The receptionist and office help were all separated from each other, they were wearing masks and the there were plastic screens between them and the patients.

Earlier someone stated that the members of the prison crews weren't eligible to become fire fighters after they didn't their time. There is a bill working it's way in the CA legislature to rectify the situation. https://wildfiretoday.com/2020/09/05/california-passes-bill-to-allow-former-inmates-who-served-on-fire-crews-to-pursue-a-career-in-fire/

I'm sure you can find some privacy, but there are logging roads crossing the area. Any prime areas will be taken. The nearby Lake Cushman has been closed by the Forest Service because of overcrowding, rowdiness, roads being blocked. People will seek other places to play. I misspelled the name it should be Waketickeh not Waketickhe. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Waketickeh+Creek/@4

To get straight information on the use of convict crews on forest fires try getting it from two places, Cal Fire and California Dept of Corrections. https://www.fire.ca.gov/ https://www.cdcr.ca.gov/facility-locator/conservation-camps/ elderolddog's posting is the most accurate.

Being an engineer, I looked at the 10,000 acres across the Mississippi from Nauvoo using Google Maps. 10,000 acres is about 16 sq. mi., or a square 4 miles by 4 miles. Switching on the terrain feature in google maps, half the area is river bottom land. It easy to see that the river was at one time about 2 miles west of it's current location. If Zarahemla was at this location 1600 years
