It seems to me that the bulk of this fad is done by young dumb kids who have no respect for others' property. It's also, currently, 'The Thing to do'. Want to tear down something? Tear down an old barn, or your parent's garage--and be prepared for what they will do to you as a result. Or, if these kids have a car of their own, tear down each-others' car and see how proud they are for acti

When we were young and dumb, my husband and I went to the trouble of buying the pieces of metal spoken of by J. Smith, and made a replaca as nearly as possible to the supposed original. Our finished master piece was kept in our Ward's library, but when the ward moved to a different area, I don't know what happened to our work (as, by then, we had also moved to a different Stake and Ward.

A while ago, I mentioned that my wonderful father-in-law was a happy athesist. He thought that death was it--period. Then, after he died, he came to me in a dream and told me that he was in a wonderful place, and that heenjoyed watching the rolling hills of greenery within his sight. At it would appear, it is not the religion that gets you into heaven so much as it is the quality of the pers

I heard that the church is dropping the scouting program. The scout program always annoyed me because they used to regularly change the uniforms so that the parents couldn't use the 1st kids outfit. Also, what with all the money we were supposed to pay for tithing, fast day offerings, etc., it would appear that most of us didn't have enough money to go around--especially when they also taug

Screech! Pay themselves very well, but leave the ladies to fend for themselves!? And without squawking!? Hasn't the church heard about women as being as deserving as men in all ways practical? If you ask me, the women in Utah ought to start a protest line around the SLC temple, with signs and words, which state that women should be treated as equals with men. First, priesthood only priv

It appears to me that many of you far underrated the efforts my daughter-in-law made in trying to reach their original owners. She made every effort she could to find them, and even fed them, and gave them water. IMO, one shouldn't judge a person without first walking in their shoes (Biblical). And, selling puppies gives them all a far better home than just letting dogs wander in the str

The last time I visited Utah (decades ago), we went into the history bldg. on the temple grounds. An item there particularly caught my eye---and why not?...it was a mummified Indian on display. I presume it was there to "prove the church was true". I'd be willing to bet my car and house that the mummy is no longer in the musiam today.

For Those of you who like dogs: My daughter-in-law was driving home when she noticed two dogs trotting along the side of the road. She stopped her car and opened a car door, and they hopped right in. The two dogs did not have tags, and the local pound wouldn't take them. As they appeared to have been trained as house pets, she took them home and gave them water and some dog food, and

Only positively. My visiting female "Messenger"(?) only stands at my door now-a-days, to give me something nice--as always--because of the C. virus, and my H.T. does like-wise, about two or three times a year, with some home-made goodie for me, made by his wife. Also, my Stake President called me on my birthday (by my name, not by "sister") and asked me if I was OK, a

"The governor is right. What’s going on now has nothing to do with George Floyd. He was an unwitting Archduke Ferdinand. Now if we can avert a civil war, I’ll consider us lucky. Creating a huge population with nothing to lose while throwing gasoline on the fire of economic inequality is a recipe for disaster.

I saw an ad on TV that showed M.O. hustling a product regarding a "loose weight" program. My opinion: More power to her, if she can make a living in a new area. It can be accessed at "Nutrisystem.com". __________________ Just thought you might be interested.

One way I coped with this problem was to have my daughter come over, where she cut my hair for me in my backyard (as all the salons are closed). How are you coping? --- I am fortunate, in that I can take my morning walks without (usually) meeting any people, and therefore do not have to wear the bothersome face mask.

I recently saw her in a magazine where she was encouraging others to follow her, on how to loose weight (exercises, and a certain kind of eating diet). If I remember correctly, the program she was pushing cost something to whomever joined. I don't blame her for that---after all, one has to earn a living somehow, and she still has name notoriety.

the black man married to a white women who were stopped on a not often used mountain road by a flying saucer, which didn't touch the ground (instead a sort of light glowed underneath the vehicle, keeping it above the ground). Supposedly, the man was brought on board so that he could be thoroughly and intimately looked over. After the visitors from space placed him back where he was they 'took

Sorry you are in a self defeating mood. Some say, don't worry, it will only get worse. Others say, I know that worrying works, because the things I worry about never happen. I say, "What's the use of worrying? It never was worth while" (from an old song), and, "It only will, or will not happen no matter how much you worry about it". My mother-in-law LOVED to worry

Down my block, and around my corner. As it was sunny, I wore my sunglasses. On my way home, a couple was just leaving their house, and noticed me and my glasses. The woman said to her husband and me, "Oh look she looks so cute in those glasses". I respond with, "I'm a movie star", and continued on my walk home.

I read about this, with a picture, in my newspaper. Notice no women? They've still got a LONG way to go, as they still don't say these prayers, themselves all rolled into a bowl shape, with the female sex. Does anyone here know what they pray about? How grateful they are to be men, and not women?

It is my understanding that, in the old days, in the South, if a child got pregnant without a husband, the father of the bride-to-be held a shotgun over the groom until the service was over. Of course, we've come a long way since then(?)

Are you able to do this? Happily, I am. Even so, I still take frequent walks a block or so (with most strollers wearing a face mask), and in so doing discovered a new friend at the end of my block (only three houses away from me!).
