My goodness! There's so many great photos here!

I'm just getting started personally. I mostly take pics with the phone and then mess around a little with filters and such (pixlr is a good app for that, and they also have a online site too! https://pixlr.com/express/) Here's one I took recently of a dignified old fellow in a local park. I did very little to it save a filter and some PS adjustments to get rid of the back end of a car in it.

I mess around with knitting and crochet off and on although I'm a rank amatuer. I've been trying my hand at the fingerless gloves. I also do a bit of tatting!

Hi everyone,

Popping in to say hello. I am not a completely new member to Nauvoo I frequented the old forums off and on, but I'm trying for a fresh start over here. I muddle around in art, writing and more recently photography as well. I'm in the midst of switching jobs, alas I will no longer be a assistant librarian but instead if all goes well a Headstart assistant teacher. I guess I am on the inactive side of things so far as Church membership goes. Anyways hello all  8)

I understand Dyany's perspective. I live in a country where a 13 old having sex with a 16 year old is not considered any kind of crime.

This train of thought and the use of the word of rape the way your law it defines, is so very foreign that I have had to reread a lot of these post to understand what many if you feel and why.

I have to say I am glad I do not live there, in case any of my children would choose to have sex underage regardless of what they have been taught. I have been always well mannered, well taught, loving the gospel, very modest, no need for therapy, good self-esteem and deemed as mature in thinking and yet having sex by my choice at 13, because I was a teenager, could have been a possibility. So I believe it could be a possibility for my children as well. So I am glad I live here and not there.

Curlybat, good job. I'm so glad you've reached a decision that feels right and I think it's a good one.

If this didn't appear to be just a tally mark on sexual conquest chart we would be going a different route.  This isn't an small indescretion made in a moment that want too far but a planned act.  These guys are predators.

First, thanks all for your input.  Second, I will likely delete this thread at some point soon because yes, this our daughter we adopted at 8. 

As you can imagine, being taken from your parents for neglect and adopted after 3 years in foster care comes with issues.  Her self esteem is poor and she does the wrong things to be accepted by the wrong peers. 

Much of what has been suggested we do for her is well under way.  After some research and the comments here we decided this needed to go through the authorities.  Roper, your last post explains well why we went this route.

The boys, through their methodology, show some experience at what they have done.  While we briefly thought about approaching the parents first to give their parents the opportunity to get things right with their boys, the probability they had done this before and are likely to do it again weighed heavy on our decision.  Also, as Roper mentioned, we envisioned denials and misrepresentation of our efforts.  One family appears to be involved in the community and active LDS.  Both boys are in athletics.  We may face public backlash from the situation.  So, we thought best to have law enforcement involved.

In Utah this is a Class A misdemeanor (if they are both 16 - if one is 17, it is a third degree felony).  Our daughter doesn't want to get them trouble but she nor apparently the boys understand the severity if what they have done.

In some jurisdictions, any adult could be liable for not reporting this. Take that into consideration when deciding.

That said, I'd be listening very carefully for signs of coercive or predatory behavior in the boys if there's a choice in reporting. The presence or absence would play a big part in my decision. It would suck to ruin a young person's life for "consensual" activity. But rapists don't stop without intervention so if they are going after 13 year olds because they know they can bully them in to sex, that's unlikely to change. So... Lots to consider.

Hot spiced apple cider, no recipe needed (vary ingredients according to taste):

Bottled apple juice, desired amount
2-3 cinnamon sticks per quart of juice
2-3 cloves per quart, lightly bruised
Nutmeg and/or allspice (optional, to taste)
1 tsp real maple syrup per quart
Fresh apple, favorite variety, thinly sliced (I like tart apples)

Put juice in saucepan with cinnamon sticks & cloves, nutmeg or allspice if desired (add gradually & check for taste). Heat but donít boil, stir in maple syrup, simmer about 15 minutes stirring occasionally, & let sit for 5 minutes. Before serving, put a couple of thin apple wedges in each mug. Pour cider into mugs.

Variation: Add 7-8 fresh crushed cranberries per quart of juice before heating, & distribute the berries into the mugs along with apple slices before serving.

What do you do when the weather is cold and wet and your kids have the sniffles?  Make Mexican hot chocolate! You can probably make it with ingredients you have on hand.  There are many recipes on the web.  Here's what I used:

Milk
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Sugar
Cinnamon
Vanilla
Chili powder

I went beyond authentic and made some stiff fluffy whipped cream for the top.  Heavy cream, powdered sugar, and 5 minutes with a wire whisk. 

I think everyone is ready for the heavy quilts, now.

I didn't find a problem with the NYT obit. It was factual and accurate.  I suppose it could have focused a little more on humanitarian achievements.  But there was nothing offensive in it.  I don't see why so many Mormons got all up in arms about it.

On both sides, really. If someone tried to get me to meet a public figure I really dislike I'd avoid it and that person because way respect me and the public figure?
