Not that there were any particular lessons or guidance in that book but I read it as a senior in High School and I remember it as a kind of pivot point to adulthood. It made clear some of the differences in people - their circumstances, attitudes, obsessions and heartaches. I saw the perils of giving in to an impulse that would affect the rest of ones life. It was the first book for which I

Have you been given a prescription for ativan? The tiniest portion of the smallest dose helps. Another thing. Put it on the "shelf". Do like Scarlett O'Hara - think about it tomorrow.

I was never Mormon but my dad was, although totally and contemptuously non-active. (Smart dad for figuring it out.) Until one day the bishop came to the door to give him his bill for his obligation to the new Stake House under construction. He could pay it in cash or work it off. (He was a carpenter!) If he gave money, it was a pittance but I think he did give some free labor.

Curious about how much money has been given by the Saints-turned-Heathens on this board. How about keeping this post up for one week or 50 posts, whichever comes first and get a total of RFM's poster's share of that $100 Billion?

It's not enough that they control your money, your friendships, your free time, and your thoughts. They want your sex life too.

Similar to what is used for colonoscopies. Relaxing sedative before the surgery. You are technically conscious but don't remember anything about it. As I understood it, the anesthesiologist has the IV in place, kicks it up a notch for the numbing shot to the eye, then takes it down to barely conscious level for the surgery.

they removed the lens but had nothing to replace it with - hence the coke bottle glasses. Also, after the surgery one had to lie still, on ones back, for a long time - many days or maybe weeks - don't remember exactly, with weights on the sides of ones head. The first implants were considered "experimental", but finally approved as standard level of care. They have been miracles fo

I remember NO negatives with the one in '95. Just so darn glad to be able to see I may not have noticed anything unusual. In '01 I did see the outline of the lens and in time it went away although occasionally in low light I still see it. I also saw some occasional flashes which worried me because I'd heard that was a sign of a detached retina. But opthalmologist said it wasn't an issue. I

Perhaps that's why the church is so rigidly pro-life. If babies were a lucrative business, to say nothing of a source of future tithe payers, pro-choicers really cut into their game, right?

rather than the tscc's troubling tendency to turn a blind eye to the recent flood of reports of child sexual abuse. Wouldn't it stand to reason that more masturbating would mean less sex abuse? Or do I not understand the dynamic at work?

She knew. Those precious little boys. Brother in law died by suicide. Speculation was that he helped dispose of the body. The worst was that she was trying to keep it together for the sake of her "eternal family".

In exchange for members in positions of authority to stop sexually abusing children, masturbation will now be allowed. Apostles are still awaiting a sign from God re: pornography.

I recently tagged the people in a group photo. One of my favorites in the group untagged herself. Then I realized that she is in a professional setting and doesn't want her private life "out there" on display for anyone who only knows her casually. There are boundaries to observe between public and private life. These days people are aware that employers, etc. peruse one's social

People have loaded too much straw on the back of the "atheist" camel. It's just a camel. Thomas Moore, (Care of the Soul) said of the spiritual experience, "We each create our own mythology." A few days after my father died, I clearly heard him say "It's ok". I don't believe I heard my father.

It is a powerful book of resilience and courage. Her title "Educated" is more than just a chronicle of her strict, perilous upbringing and her journey to college degrees. It also illuminates the difference between understanding the world through history, science, and philosophy and living a life based on superstitions- eg. faith in the imaginary. However, as much as I was affected by
