Hi, Jana! I sure wish I could have seen you this time around, but I've had commitments in several places & had to be out of town a lot, That makes me glad we had those opportunities before, because Nauvoodles are so widely scattered & yet we're like a ward family. I hope you & Andries are having a good time. Hugs for you & give all the CrowFamily hugs for me!

Incabitants might be interested in what happened when a cat café in Oakland was burglarized, What's a cat café, and who knew Oakland had one? Is it a place where you take your cat to enjoy a tuna casserole or grilled salmon while you have a burger, Cobb salad, or just a piece of pie? Read on.

It's sad when people have to part with pets they love, & also when pets have to part with people they love, which have both happened in this cat's life. I'm sorry to hear about the challenges getting this "senior" critter settled into a good home. I love animals but have enough of an allergy issue that it wouldn't work to live with one. And if I did adopt your cat, I think we live far enough apart that you wouldn't be able to see her very often except in pictures.

I hope you find the right home for her to be comfortable the rest of her life.

Iggy, do you mean that your husband had cataracts and they went away on their own? That's... astonishing!

Indeed! If this is correct, that's grand news!


What a terrible tragedy. Four people who all had served their country in some way are dead: a man who may have gone into the military as an ordinary guy, perhaps served well & honorably, but came out with demons that required therapy but overwhelmed him to the degree that they got him evicted from the therapy program; & three health professionals whose careers were devoted to helping returned veterans defeat or at least calm their demons.

Surely both mental illness & easy access to firearms are issues here, like they are in so many other mass shootings. But this wasn’t quite the same as Parkland or Sutherland Springs or Las Vegas. Are we doing enough for military personnel who have trouble readjusting to everyday civilian life? In hindsight, was enough done to keep the staff safe, especially after a patient was expelled from a treatment program?

RIP to all of them, all victims of war in some way. And it appears that gratitude is due the Napa County deputy who, unlike a certain Florida officer, actually responded to this crisis, slowing the attacker’s progress & possibly saving some lives.

Ahhh, the beloved classic Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. I remember reading that in American Lit class. I wonder if Reverend Edwards used the word "supernal," or if he didn't waste any mention of heaven on his clearly wicked, hopelessly doomed listeners.  :D

I'm so sorry to hear about all this, feel terrible for you & your neighbors who are being impacted. Prayers continuing.

But someone ALWAYS says "supernal." It wouldn't be General Conference without it. :)

Prayers going forth. Every religion has a version of the Golden Rule. May those folks remember theirs.

With March/April 2018 General Conference coming soon, it’s time for the speculation & surmising & rumors to begin. What can we look forward to?

Who will be called to the vacancies in the Quorum of the Twelve? Will there be another one from outside the U.S., maybe even from the Third World? Or someone who isn’t married, or if married doesn’t have 18 grandkids & at least a few great-grandkids?

Will there be another set of talks by General Authorities/Officers in their own languages? I really liked that feature when it was done a couple of years ago. It helped me appreciate the effort it takes for non-English speakers to hear or read a translation & try to grasp it with the spirit & intent of the original speaker.

Last time I predicted that the White House, Congress, & the Supreme Court would be dedicated for missionary work, but it didn't happen. And see how much better off our country is now (not). Maybe it will be announced this time, & since the former Utah Supreme Court justice is now on the First Presidency, I'll again predict that he will be the one to pronounce the dedication. 

Will no one, not even one person, actually use the word “supernal”? GC is literally the only time I ever hear that word used, almost every time in fact, & I would miss it if it didn't appear at least once.  :)

Well, yeah - but a full mane seems more than a few stray whiskers that you pluck off with tweezers! That lioness was well on the way to looking like one of Daniel's cellmates!

Here’s some good news, on a day when most of California has had continual rain or snow and any lost domestic pets out there could be at real risk.

Looking at this little critter, you know she’d be just an appetizer for a raccoon or a pit bull. :o  She was adopted from a shelter & had been in her new home for just four hours when she wandered off. She was gone four days, & the distraught new owners searched & put up posters & had tons of people looking. But the dog apparently knew where home was, went back one night & then returned for good the next night. How did she do it? Who knows what animals are thinking? Maybe she knew she was loved there. :)

All very interesting!

That is quite a voice!

As for the lioness, if menopause is the explanation for the mane, why don't more lionesses grow them so it isn't such a curiosity?

Sheesh, got another one. Why am I getting all these spam appeals? :( I am not opening the e-mais, but right-clicking & selecting “Review Message Source,” which sometimes lets you read some of the content. Another one with grammar & diction suggesting the writer is not a native English speaker/writer & is translating into what he/she believes to be proper formal English.

This predator thinks people are dumb enough to send their phone & fax numbers - unfortunately, some are.

You just never know what Mother Nature will come up with. I’m not ready to say that animals can be trans, or that higher species of mammals can be hermaphroditic, but this adult lioness is growing a substantial mane & looking like a lion. She’s 18 years old, well beyond adolescence. Maybe she accidentally got dosed with a hormone? Anyway, the zoo people say she doesn’t seem to be bothered by it – not sure how the other lions are taking it.



Billy Graham has passed – a life 99 years long, & well lived in the service of God. I never embraced his particular kind of religion, but I don’t think I could find any reason to doubt his commitment or sincerity. He was an evangelist in a positive sense, before some of the “televangelists” who have been a less positive influence or have made evangelical Christianity look bad. I think his son Franklin has been more contentious & less like his dad than I would have liked.

He often walked a thin line among different religious & political viewpoints, so much that he was able to be a religious advisor to several presidents of both parties. Both #45 & #44 praised him upon learning of his death, as some of their predecessors did.

When I was a little kid, my parents, dyed-in-the-wool Protestants, took me to revival meetings. I grew up in Northern California, & I think we went to hear Billy Graham at the Cow Palace just south of San Francisco. Or maybe it wasn’t on one of those family trips, but with a group from the church I grew up in. The pastor was always organizing those trips for the youth & adults, & even sometimes had weeklong revivals at the church where the community was invited. I don’t recall that I was moved by the Spirit to go up at “altar call” to give my life to the Lord, but many people did. Billy Graham brought a lot of people to a closer awareness of the Lord & their relationship with Him, & while I don’t know how long the spirit of the altar calls lasted, many of them must have stayed faithful & lived godly lives.

I’m sure he is enjoying his well-earned rest.
