    Democratic Presidential candidates

    I heard that the debates winner was Donald Trump!
  2. Both choices require perfect information, which many times is unobtainable. So it can be a conundrum.

    Rules of the United Order

    Very interesting. But rule eleven makes no sense at all. Simply not possible in our interdependent world. Unless we wish to always be relatively impoverished.
  4. Are any of you guys married? In my experience it’s all about the Benjamins for attractive women. Yes, even my wife. We were on a cruise a year or so ago and at the table we sat at she noticed she was the only one without a Rolex watch. Tag Heuer not good enough. Last Christmas I had to rectify the situation. In fairness, when we married, I had nothing.
  5. A case of true love. She loves his money and he loves you know what she’s got!

    What’s the last movie you watched?

    Just saw The Longshot. No one else need bother. This is is a Public Service Announcement.

    Failed Movies -- Good or Bad

    Some of these "bad" movies will survive to be come cult classics. Think Rocky Horror Picture Show. A flop in its day.

    Speaking as a train-lover...

    I'm a big model train guy and one of my best friends lives in the UK. He wasn't at this show but we both heard about tis on a model train oriented website. Truly senseless.

    Life and lifestyle stuff

    I think most of them are algeas and amoebas and such. So what.

    Irony - Answered Prayers

    State of hearts? At some level it’s just business. I dont think God has a lot to do with it.

    If you were to move to the SLC area...

    I know nothing about prices in SLC, but traditionally, the Eastside is the best side.

    The LGBT stumbling block.

    The Church merely requires its members to be chaste. If that is anti LGBTQ, so be it.

    The Prophet and all Apostles will attend Rome Dedication

    Yes, this is the scripture. Any reasonable intepretation seems to mean that in the absence of the Twelve they have the same authority, just like the Twelve have in the absence of the Quorum of the First Presidency.

    The Prophet and all Apostles will attend Rome Dedication

    Had Hyrum not died when Joseph did, he would have been prophet of the Church. He had the position of First Elder, by which he would have succeeded. It was due to this anomaly that the succession was contested by Rigdon et al. Another fact was that Joseph, in a blessing ostensibl named a son as a successor as well This son went on to lead the RLDS Church we LDS of course, believe that the succession contest was settled in the correct manner.

    The Prophet and all Apostles will attend Rome Dedication

    I'm fairly sure is scriptural in the D&C, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

    The Prophet and all Apostles will attend Rome Dedication

    Hopefully, they are taking separate transportation. Kind of like corporate executives do. If the worst happens, the Quorum of Seventy would hold the keys to the kingdom.

    For those who live in Utah...

    I lived in Utah for three years while attending BYU. Since it's an atypical experience, I won't comment on the culture. But I had to get home to California ASAP because weather!

    Gun people: Tell me about the M18

    It's a great gun. I also have the SIG P220 Sport as featured in the original movie REDS. It is a competition gun, not carryable.

    Gun people: Tell me about the M18

    The p320 is a modular striker fired pistol. If you don’t know what that means, go buy a Ruger Single Six, and learn about shooting. IMO Sig-Sauer make the best firearms out of the box. I have several, including a P210, generally considered the best military firearm ever made. Glocks are very good in their market niche. Of of course if one is really serious about shooting pistols, Korth is the only way to go!😳

    Dating Services

    I'm sure there is a lot of doo doo to wade through on these sites. That being said...…….. I know quite a few married couples who met through the internet. A nephew of mine is one of them. He and his wife were at the house last night with their one year old. Delightful family.
  21. Your husband needs to choose. His brother or you. Be be prepared to leave. This early in your marriage,this is a big red flag and deal breaker.

    Remember, Democrats Are NOT Elitists

    You all realize LBJ married into money, right?😳
  23. I have attended many services that are not LDS. I’m respectful, but don’t recite the Lords Prayer or any creeds with the audience. Why would I parrot something I don’t believe in. Trump did OK.

    The Hill Cumorah

    Well, clearly that’s Cumorah in the background. So yeah, I’ll go with it.

    Who called John the Baptist?

    He was likely an ordained priest, following in his fathers footsteps. There are likely some supernatural events omitted from the narrative we have. The Baptist clearly saw his mission in life.
