  1. And today... BYU beat the 24th ranked USC Trojans.... 30 to 27. The team played better than I've seen in a long time... GG
  2. I just spent a half hour trying to figure out how to cancel a timer that I accidentally set... I finally succeeded, but can't remember just how I did it, even though I used the "help" feature... GG
  3. I've mentioned here how we have several police officers who attend our ward, including the Chief of police... they wear full uniform, including weapons... this morning one officer attended in uniform... and for the first time ever... ever... this included a bullet-proof vest... GG
  4. I watched on facebook... next week BYU-tv will rebroadcast it... it may still be up on facebook. I had missed the first 20 mins trying to figure out how to watch. Churchofjesuschrist.org gives a choice of twitter or facebook so I chose facebook and that worked...I was able to watch it again last night on facebook as it was still up...so I got to see what I had missed. Juliann... The fushia dress sleeves startled me... GG
  5. I watched this last night, and it was absolutely lovely... with music that stirred my soul and brought tears to my eyes more than once... there was an emphasis on Christ and Pres Nelson's calling to be a special witness of Christ to all the world. A brief biography was included, with some of his contributions to the med community, and his love of people. I came away with a better understanding and appreciation of him as a person, and our prophet. He is a remarkable person and disciple of Christ. The performances were uplifting, dignified... and I was surprised at the talent of Donny Osmond as he performed a duet with Nathan Pacheco... "excellence" comes to mind... in regard to the whole event... GG
  6. And you end a testimony or a talk with... In the name of Jesus Christ... Amen GG
  7. MS... I would be perfectly honest and tell her you will not be participating or ordering. You don't have to be rude, etc., but I'd be firm so as to leave no doubt. You have no obligation to spend your hard earned funds and buy products you really don't want just because she is family... if there does happen to be a product you would like to have, go ahead and purchase it while still being firm that you will be buying only that product... GG
  8. Many Christian churches, including the Catholic Church, baptize children as infants... From Pres Hinckley... The innocence of little children is another revelation which God has given through the Prophet Joseph. The general practice is the baptism of infants to take away the effects of what is described as the sin of Adam and Eve. Under the doctrine of the Restoration, baptism is for the remission of one's individual or personal sins. It becomes a covenant between God and man. It is performed at the age of accountability, when people are old enough to recognize right from wrong... And from D&C 68:25-28 ...And inasmuch as parents have children in Zion... when they arrive at the age of accountability... they shall teach them the doctrine of repentance, faith in Christ the Son of the living God, and baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of the hands, when eight years old.... And they shall also teach their children to pray, and to walk uprightly before the Lord. GG
  9. I, too, miss thesometimessaint... hope he is well... GG
  10. Thanks for checking, Calm... GG
  11. I also miss Uncle Dale... does anyone know if he is all right? I know he had health issues, but not how serious... GG
  12. Perhaps he isn't a charlatan... but a hoax is a hoax, and apparently this one did some real damage or pain to some people... at least according to the 21+ response entries online... GG
  13. A sad tragedy I was personally aware of... and one of the reasons I never liked the models that had clips... so when I purchased my weapon I chose a revolver (Smith & Wesson 38-special) where you can actually see the bullets in the cylinder... When I worked as Admin Asst to the Dir of the Univ Library at San Fran State Univ, one of my co-workers (faculty) was married to a man whose job often took him away from home... so over her objections (she disliked guns) he bought a pistol that had a clip. It was Christmas Eve and he, his wife and 13 year old step-daughter were opening presents... his wife's was the pistol. She expressed her fears and said she really didn't want it... but he insisted it was safe as long as she took proper safety measures, and he would teach her how to use it. He loaded the clip into the gun... and then disengaged the clip, telling her it was now unloaded and safe... but he FORGOT the bullet that was left in the chamber when he unloaded the clip. He said... See, it's not loaded, and safe now... and aimed it across the room and fired... the bullet in the chamber fired and hit her daughter in the head, killing her instantly. He was so distraught at what happened he fell on his knees in front of her, crying, saying how sorry he was, and begging her to kill him... she ran into the kitchen and he followed her, still saying... Kill me... She ran from him, and he turned the gun on himself, fired, killing himself instantly. This couple was very active on campus and this stunned the campus community greatly... GG
  14. Thanks Meadowchik for exposing this charlatan... I thought about participating in this question on what we enjoy about the Church, until I googled his name... GG
  15. You misunderstand me... I was referring to this as the voice of Jesus as far as that scripture... and then there is D&C 88:104 "And this shall be the sound of his (angel's) trump, saying to all people, both in heaven and in earth, and that are under the earth--for every ear shall hear it, and every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess , while they hear the sound of the trump, saying: Fear God, and give glory to him that sitteth upon the throne, forever and forever; for the hour of his judgment is come.. i.e., everyone whoever lived on earth will have the opportunity to hear/know Christ before final judgment.
