    Attending a Christian college

    PC, this is true: no matter where you are, if you want x, you will find x. The people who want y, are aware of x, but they continue to choose y. While at BYU, I knew those who were engaging in activities that were inappropriate but I didn't hang out with them.

    Attending a Christian college

    When I attended BYU, I first went as a non-member (we won't mention how long ago that was but I'll admit it was not in this century). At that time, even as a non-member, the tuition was cheaper than the Indiana University tuition. After I became a member, my tuition went down about 25% and my dad, who was not happy about my baptism, was at least a little gleeful about saving some money. PC, it's seems amazing to me that your daughter is old enough for college! In my head, your girls are still around 10 yrs old (even though I've never met them or know them in any way...just from your mention of them on here). Exciting times!

    The COVID thread

    So, my company (large company with Southeast Asia offices) just banned all travel and stated that there was to be no face-to-face meetings--we are to conduct meetings via web. Interestingly enough, they are not banning visitors to one of our major offices (in KC, MO). But, they are requiring those visitors to complete a questionnaire. Anyway, as a result of the no meetings ban, our local work from home contingency (there are 6 of us total here) had to cancel our quarterly lunch. There are 3 of the 6 who live near each other--we decided to go to lunch together during the time we already carved out of our schedules for the previous quarterly lunch. It's not a "work" lunch...just 3 friends who work together going out for lunch.

    Church has issued a statement on Covid-19

    My dad was born and raised in Bulgaria (formerly communist). He remembers this happening but it was Stalin that provided the candy they prayed for.

    Return of a legend

    I didn't recognize Coach Keady. They were playing the music from the movie "Hoosiers" when they introduced the coaches. LOL

    Return of a legend

    And for the great stinky one, @mirkwood, 2 legends were honored at the Pacer game.

    Return of a legend

    Seriously, how has this not been discussed? It was an emotional day for Hoosiers.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    I recognized that it was more of a memento rather than an award for his own service. I'm not into the EU to know the details you provided.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    I'm gonna jump in here to say a couple of things after watching this last installment of cra....uh, Rise of Skywalker. First, why?why?why? Are people really that desperate to see gay kissing that they have to have it so prominent in this movie? Ugh. I should be used to it being in every freaking thing put out by Hollywood, but I suppose I'm still naive. And I hope to see Dominic Monaghan in a Star Trek movie at some point so he can be a part of the trifecta of movies...LOTR, SW, ST. Thank you, @anatess2 for expressing some of my thoughts on ignoring her parents, Palpatine winning, among other issues. I did have a little rejoice moment to see Chewy get his medal, although I felt he deserved the ceremony with it.

    Necessary Thanksgiving Foods

    Cracker Barrel has THE best pancakes I've ever had. Crispy edges, fluffy middle and full of flavor (before adding the butter and syrup). And for dinner, they have greens! My friends make fun of me because I'll often get 2 servings of their greens. Yum!

    Necessary Thanksgiving Foods

    I'm so glad you were able to adapt it. And I'm so glad to hear that my momma's recipe is finding the love with others!

    Necessary Thanksgiving Foods

    My husband has to work on Thanksgiving, so we are doing our own dinner the night before. It's just the 2 of us, so we decided that are musts are: Turkey (well, chicken in this case--we just can't deal with a whole turkey), stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, something green (green beans, this year), rolls, dessert (doing a sweet potato casserole, this year), and my husband needs cranberry sauce (I don't do that except as a jam for toast). I'm actually not big on desserts and I can't stand sweet things with my savory food. Hence, the sweet potato casserole is not next to my potatoes/gravy, but a dessert for us and my husband will enjoy his cranberry sauce with his food, while I'll save it for toast or a PBJ sandwich later.

    Free email provider?

    Yep, I have 3 gmail and 2 yahoo. Used to have a hotmail until it got hacked. There is only 1 account that is my "home" account with my personal info. All others have fake name...Like my first name is "First" and last name is "Last." Or first name is "A" and last name is "Bacon" or something like that. I use several accounts just to sign up for websites. For example, to use Pinterest, you need to have an email account. I don't want to get blasted with stupid spam email so, I use one of my "fake" emails to sign up. That email account has thousands of unread messages since I don't go into consistently.

    Free email provider?

    Why can't you just create another email account in gmail or yahoo? I have several email accounts. A couple are used simply to sign up for sites that I know is going to send me junk mail. When it asked for first/last name, I use something like "First" and "Last" (literally). That way, I'm not giving any actual information.
