    I thought it was Kay Beck...?

    How much has changed

    I appreciate that almost all of the convention and assembly parts are symposiums instead of hour long talks. It's much easier on my attention span.
  3. If a single person waits a 1000 years to get married they are guaranteed a perfect mate...
  4. I love this video! Its interesting that it appeared to be released on JW.ORG first.
  5. The video for the #2 Study Point has been released https://www.jw.org/en/publications/videos/reading-teaching-videos/2-conversational-manner-video/
  6. I;m sure someone will explain it next time...
  7. New World Translation Released in Five Languages On January 12, 2019, in Benin City, Nigeria, the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures was released in the Isoko language and the revised edition of the New World Translation was released in the Yoruba language. On the same day, in Dudley, West Midlands, England, the book of Matthew from the New World Translation was released in British Sign Language. The New World Translation was also released in two languages in the Philippines. The revised edition was released in Cebuano on January 12, 2019, in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. On the following day, in Palo, Leyte, the New World Translation was released in Waray-Waray. The New World Translation has been translated in whole or in part into 179 languages, including 18 complete revisions based on the 2013 edition. https://www.jw.org/en/whats-new/nwt-isoko-yoruba-cebuano-waray-waray-british-sign-language/
  8. My impression was that he was saying they would be released within the month, he didn't specify whether that was the next two consecutive week, the last two consecutive weeks or alternate weeks. Since it doesn't appear that we will have anything released today, then Bosko conclusion about the next two weeks appears to be right.
  9. This may help you recall some practical suggestions to help him. https://www.jw.org/finder?pub=g14&issue=2014-04&wtlocale=E&srcid=share
  10. Think about seeing a fee based financial adviser, they may have some suggestions on the best way to reach your goal. I saw an adviser to ensure I was preparing for my retirement and found out that I could retire several years sooner than I had planned. I'm glad I talked to him!

    Our heart...

    I read about a kid that put his hand on his butt during the national anthem because he believed his heart was in his butt. He explained to the teacher that his grandma would pinch his butt and say "bless your little heart"
  12. I hope that same link works, it's possible we'll need to add 'am' to 'jwb', however I'll let the smart guys figure that out for us...
  13. The link in post #25 should work early Monday morning, however, the broadcast is usually available on the JWB site within a couple of hours after it is available by link. So if the link doesn't work, just be patient and check the JWBroadcasting site.
  14. I almost had a great experience last week. Several weeks ago we were doing early morning street work and I stopped at a carpool lot, it was a Sunday morning and I was surprised to see someone getting out of a work truck at the far end of the lot. I talked to him for a minute and left him a tract, he asked for my phone number in case he had questions. I didn't hear from him for several weeks so I stopped by the carpool lot again and his truck was there, I left a tract and a note for him, he called me two days later. During our conversation he said he wanted a bible so I offered to bring him one, he suggested that he could just meet me at my church! So we made arrangements for him to attend a meeting, unfortunately he texted just before the meeting that he was sick and couldn't make it. Anyway, I have texted him and hope to get him to a meeting soon.
  15. That sounds like a handy little trick. Thx.
