  1. I love the story of the little boy that went camping with some friends. About the 4th or 5th days he couldn't put his boots on, so someone helped him and discovered he had on 5 pairs of socks. His mother had told him to put on a clean pair every day but hadn't told him to take the old pair off. It's a funny story because you think common sense would tell you to strip off the old clothing before you put on new clothing, yet Paul felt it was necessary to be very specific...
  2. Hey Quicksdraw, you good shooter...
  3. I go with more tradition names like Fred or Harry...
  4. It...was...a...joke...and I thought it was funny. No need to beg to differ
  5. Cool spider! We name the spiders that we find, although they all have the same name, "Squashed"...
  6. The brothers have decided to replace all of the bathroom partition doors and hardware at the Assembly Hall. I was there all day today and I was asked to come back on Monday to work on them, It turns out the job is taking longer than they thought. We are replacing the doors and hardware in over 60 stalls. Some of the new doors appear to be a little smaller so we need to adjust the width of the opening. Its amazing what you can learn working with LDC. I love it!
  7. Thats a good illustration. Flowers aren't perfect, some have thorns, some are missing petals or are eaten by bugs, but overall we still appreciate the joy and beauty of a flower.
  8. My wife does that! She tells me to do something that I'm already doing and then thinks that I only do it because she told me to! I teased her about it one day by telling her "left, right, left, right" while she was walking. My wife has so many good qualities that it completely overshadows the small things that might annoy me. I know that I probably annoy her more so we call it even...
  9. We had several Family Worship about communication and we used that article. It's a great article.

  11. It sounds like it would have been hard for him to give you his undivided attention until after he had gone to the restroom. It sounds like he was making sure he could give you all of his attention for as long as you needed it...
  12. It doesn't need to, its pretty good already. Shes a wonderful woman.
  13. Happy future anniversary! Our 40th was last year.
  14. Have you tried closing one eye? You'll only see half the clutter...
  15. Update: https://www.jw-russia.org/news/19011723-565.html On January 21, 2019, hearings in the case of Jehovah's Witness Dennis Christensen will continue in the Orel Railway Court. Probably, the debate of the parties will begin on this day, during which representatives of the prosecution will say what punishment, in their opinion, should be assigned to the believer. After the debate, the defendant will be given the last word and the court will retire to the deliberation room for sentencing. On January 16, 2019, the court almost ended the judicial investigation of the case. The witnesses for the prosecution and the defense were questioned, the materials and evidence in the case were examined. The defendant presented his explanations to the court. The parties to the defense filed petitions, the resolution of which was postponed until January 21, 2019. The parties confirmed to the court that they were ready to speak at the debate. Dennis Christensen’s accusation of “organizing the activities of an extremist organization” (Article 282.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) is based on the court’s decision to liquidate and ban the activities of the local religious organization (LRO) of Jehovah's Witnesses in Orel. The believer himself denies any connection with extremism and insists on his complete innocence. The hearing will begin on January 21, 2019 at 11:00 in the Zheleznodorozhny District Court of Orel at the address: ul. Maxim Gorky, 45-a.
  16. Maybe Kirk or Picard are sending out a distress signal! Someone needs to alert the Federation!
  17. 15lbs? That's 60 quarter pounder hamburgers a week!
  18. Hot chocolate. The news said it was kept at 120F to keep it liquid.

    California Fires

    When the lights go down in the city And the sun shines on the bay Do I wanna be there in my city? The PG&E utility company is filing for bankruptcy. The utility company provides gas and electricity for most of northern California, including San Francisco. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pg-e-bankruptcy-impact-price-hikes-unpaid-fire-lawsuits/ PG&E says it can't afford at least $30 billion in expected costs related to California's deadly 2017 and 2018 wildfires. Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy will allow the company to hold off creditors and keep providing electricity and natural gas service while it gets its finances in order.
