    Dealing with trauma

    About two years ago, my then 72-year-old mother was run over by a snow plow. Yes, a snow plow. Not the type that plow the city roads, but the ones you call to plow your driveway after a heavy snowfall. Given her age, it’s a miracle she did not sustain any broken bones, let alone survive. However, she now cringes whenever she hears the sound of a snow plow backing up.

    Free email provider?

    No. My wife still uses her Hotmail account.
  3. Several heroes have also lived trying that. Sometimes, the only thing you can do is improvise the best you can with the situation at hand, with the one second you have to think about it.

    Facebook bans LDS church link

    It’s blocked for me as well. I suppose Facebook realized that the standards of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was well above their “community standards.”

    Goodbye

    I’m also sorry to see you go, Folk Prophet. I’ve always found your posts to be interesting and thought provoking. However, I understand where you’re coming from, as I have also found myself coming to this forum less and less for the same reasons you stated. It’s been a long while since I’ve bothered to read an MGF article, as I have grown tired of their liberal leanings.

    Prayer Dillema

    Your gender is an eternal attribute. It is not something that changes, regardless of what the world would like us to believe. As such, if your sibling was born male, I would pray using the male pronoun. Personally, I believe Heavenly Father cares very much about what pronouns I use. I would feel odd praying for someone if I refused to acknowledge their divine nature. You know your brother is not really a she, so why pretend he is when praying?

    First time since I do not know how long

    Well, there are two reasons I can think of: 1. It’s not always possible to bring food you make at home. 2. Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for a greasy cheeseburger.
  9. Oddly enough, I’m sitting in the IAH airport as I’m reading this. Should I be concerned?

    Childhood Toys that Stick in the Memory

    That’s true. A few years ago, my wife and I bought some Play-Doh for our oldest daughter on her birthday. When I opened up the can, the smell emanating from that can transported me back to my days in kindergarten. It smelled like childhood.

    Childhood Toys that Stick in the Memory

    I did the same. I loved playing with GI Joes. Like you, I would spend hours having them embark on clandestine operations and engage in heroic battles. Don’t forget though, “Knowing is half the battle.”

    Doesn't sit well with me

    Other than my interest in fine watches, I don’t care. I don’t consider it any of my business what kind of watch he wears, car he drives, or house he lives in.

    “High-end” doesn’t necessarily refer to vanity over function, but I can see how one might interpret it that way. In the context of my post, I thought it was implied that pilots would purchase them for reasons of functionality. However, what I actually said was that it is common for pilots to buy “high-end” watches. Brietling would be considered a “high-end” watch just as Rolex and Omega are considered “high-end.” Pilots also use Rolex and Omega. Ergo, it is common for pilots to use “high-end” watches.

    Yes, well, that was sort of my point.

    High-end watches are common for pilots. That’s probably why Utchdorf sports a Breitling.
