    Third Hour forum get together

    @pam I think my subconscious wanted to attend. I accidently booked my flight home on the 24th. So count me in for any dinner on the 23rd. Yay!

    Heart attacks are no fun

    Not to be morbid, but, I have an email group set up and it's titled "Death." I've told my husband he is to use that to let others know about my death. Our own @pam is on that list. And @NeuroTypical some of our people on that other place are on the list too.

    When my husband and I did our Filipino Christmas, this is what we made for dessert. Holy cow! The only thing that would have made that better would be to use Nutella instead of just plain chocolate. So, so good.

    Why do you need to eat bananas? There are other things you can eat to get the nutrients. What's the deal with bananas?

    Wow, LM! I'm so very glad you are ok. How scary for your family! Are they doing ok now? And yeah, change that diet! Get the whole family on board to change their eating and get healthier!

    @pam I fly OUT of Utah on 8/23. Dang it! I'll be there from 8/14-8/20 with my hubby, then he leaves and I'm staying to attend Ed Wk but leaving on 8/23. BTW, I'll be in Orlando this month. @MormonGator and @anatess2 that anywhere near you?
  7. I didn't take it as ambushing her either. I took it that she and the leaders agreed on some questions knowing that some of those questions may be upsetting to her. I think providing those questions beforehand (and agreeing on them) shows respect for her feelings. And I'm baffled by her claim that Joseph didn't teach or participate in polygamy.

    I hate my husband's calling (Bishop)

    I'm sorry this is happening. I've not had this issue. As I thought about practical advice, my inner rebel kept piping up, "Don't stop going to church! That means they win! Go to church and be cheerful and smiling so the old biddies will have to work even harder to push us out!" Maybe the sentiment isn't good, but I think the actions are good. Focus on people who need a friend or a kind word or a smile. Support your husband and be even kinder to him--his burden is greater due to the actions of these people. Choose faith--and sometimes it is a choice--and rely on the Lord even more.

    Saying sorry

    I don't understand. They bump into each other and that resulted in a fight? I suppose I'm just weird. This is how it would have gone down for me: Another person and I run into each other Me: OH! I'm sorry! Are you ok? Other Person (OP): Yeah, no harm done. I guess it could have happened this way.... Me: OH! I'm sorry! Are you ok? OP: You stupid @#[email protected]#[email protected]! You need to watch where you are going! You #[email protected]#$!#$%. Me: Uh, okayyyy.... walks away.... I couldn't care less if people call me names. I suppose if someone takes a swing, then things would change. But, it typically wouldn't result in violence unless both parties are being stupid.

    The next life

    In an article on ldsliving (linky), it quotes Joseph Smith as saying (referring to the deceased among us), "They are not far from us, and know and understand our thoughts, feelings, and motions, and are often pained therewith." Why would the deceased know our thoughts? I thought it was the Lord only who knew our thoughts (not even Satan knows our thoughts). What is it about not having a mortal body allows us to know another's thoughts? Am I being too literal in understanding this statement?

    What’s the last movie you watched?

    Finally saw Endgame. SPOILERS! I admit, I exclaimed aloud when Cap picked up Mjolnir. I bawled like a baby with Tony and Pepper at the end. I, too, wondered about the backstory of Nat and Clint. I had some serious issues with the timeline problems. But, I enjoyed the movie overall. I'm glad it's over (ok, not really, as there will be movies with Spiderman, Marvel, Dr. Strange, and what the heck happened to Loki???).

    Old TV shows

    I think MASH still holds up. I still laugh at some of the craziness. "I'll carry on, carry over, Cary Grant, or even hari kari, if you show me how...." 🤣

    A Realization I had During Ramadan Last Night

    Here's my typical conversations when this comes up (this is not an exaggeration--actually happened several times): Friend: try this coffee! So good! Beef: no thanks. Friend: why? it's really good! I hated coffee until I tried this. Try it! Beef: no, I don't drink coffee and honestly hate even the smell of it. Look at that lady's purse! It's so pretty! Friend: just try it. Beef: no, it's also against my religion. Seriously, did you see that purse? Loved the teal color! Friend: what? Why? What's wrong with coffee? Your Mountain Dew has caffeine too! Beef: it's not about the caffeine. I've made a promise to God that I won't drink coffee, or tea, or alcohol, or smoke, or take drugs. I love teal, but don't have a teal purse. Do you have one? Friend: I get the smoking and drugs, but coffee? tea? alcohol? What's wrong with them? Even in moderation, a little alcohol is good. Beef: it's against my religion. I made a promise to God. Where did you get your purse? Friend: but, coffee is healthy! And drinking wine is healthy! Don't you want to be healthy? Beef: I don't know if there is anything wrong with them. But, I made a promise to God to not drink them. Can we talk about purses now? I'm not changing my mind about the coffee. So, where's the best place to get a teal purse?
  14. I didn't express myself well. What people decide in their marriage is their business. I don't agree necessarily that divorce is the answer if one of the spouses leave the church (and that's the only thing that changed), but it's not my business and I'm not privy to the privacy of the marriage or of the Lord's inspiration. So, one couple's choice to separate and another to stay isn't disturbing to me. What disturbed me was how they expressed it to me. Saying to me that they would divorce in response to me sharing such personal, painful information disturbs me. To me, it just isn't proper to express that thought as a response. Something more along the lines of, "I'm so sorry to hear that. That must be very difficult. Wow, I'm not sure how I would respond in your place."--any of those are appropriate. It just upsets me to hear people say that in response. I don't hold it against them. Most of the time, people just don't know what to say in these situations, so unfortunately, they don't think about how it will sound or be taken.
