Besides having the four under five, it was later increased to six 9 and younger eating with perfect manners and helping each other, the sixth born on the governor's birthday. The rest came later.

I remember taking our first four - all under fve - out for Sunday dinners at the Red Coach Grill (no longer in existance) where the chilren ate for free! This was before becoming a Mormon. The children behaved perfectly and we would go for a swim at the Y (not BYU!).

The BOM is exceedingly boring and poorly written, making it easy to get to sleep... it took me thirty years to read through it, almost that long to even finish First Nephi. At one point I tried reading it and retranslating it to modern Englisth. I found it easy to eliminate a third of the words without a change in meaning. The "most correct book" is a joke. BTW, I have over 1500 boo

The garmies are a control method of the cult. Yes, when I didn't wear them, I felt guilty. Guilt is the method of control.

Wild roses are very small and grow quickly. Instead of large blooms, each flower is about half an inch in diameter and has handful of tiny petals. The rose stems naturally have thorns.

Roses seem to be everywhere! Even in our yard, not only are the red roses in peak bloom but so are the white wild roses! The grass is a gorgeous green.

My father was a physicist. When he was young he was burned by radiation. Even early dental x-rays were noted by him as a danger. I had a client burned by dental x-rays taken with a defective old x-ray machine. My father worked on the A-bomb and was upset that it was used because of the effects of radiation and was very upset as we exposed troops near the testing sites and to the people from fallo

And definitely NOT Lamanite, either. While I was in college I dated a young woman who was a grad student at Harvard who was about half Yakima indian. She was neither Lamanite nor Nephite nor any combination thereof.

Dorothy, I believe in hell. It makes me feel better because certain evil persons should be there, especially if they had no punishment while they lived for their evil.

I must go down to the seas again.... I live only a long golf drive to the ocean and I hadn't heard anything about Satan owning it until years after I became a mormon. Utter hogwash. I always would walk down to the beach to give my soul relief.

I do not agree. As translators find older manuscripts and can correct errors, the scriptures are improved. The problems come, of course, when it is found that a translation is wrong and it has been used for a significant belief or tenet of faith. In Luke, for example, what JS increased to Christ "bleeding from every pore" wasn't anything like that. Indeed, the best and oldest manuscript

The one I feel is both the best for footnotes, correctness, and readability is the Catholic "New American Bible". The vocabulary is more extensive then, for example, the NIV which I find to be dumbed down. The NIV also, even the footnoted version I have, fails to note errors and alternative readings of some scriptures. I found it interesting that certain scriptures I always found odd we

But do drink coffee if you ever have depression or need to avoid falling asleep while driving. I got my TR even when I admitted drinking coffee to stay awake.

Actually, Nixon wrote about the situation before (a while before becoming president) and noted that even the Chinese nuclear capacity at that time would be of no use to them, but rather an easy target to destroy if China were to foolishly enter.
