We had the funeral and the burial yesterday.  In a way, it's good to have that closure.

It's been raining all weekend. There's snow above 9000 ft.  All the surrounding mountaintops are white.  They're really beautiful, especially when the clouds linger in the basins between the peaks.  It looks like Tolkien's "Misty Mountains."

Good. Maybe it will cut down on the non-doctrinal lecturing against diet Dr. Pepper :p

My niece is a new teacher this year.  There was a hailstorm which frightened one of her second grade students.  The next day, the boy announced to the class, "When Jesus comes again, there won't be any more hail or earthquakes or volcanoes.  There won't even be school."  I guess school belongs in the same category as natural disasters.  ;D

General Discussion / Re: what if Queen Victoria did not marry???

The issue isn't whether she married, but didn't have kids, isn't it?   And your hypothesis assumes that they were collectively the sole cause of WWI, when usually it takes a confluence of events before a specific thing happens.

No guarantee that mother would have lived with the chemo, especially long enough to raise the children.  Seems to me that if she died in six months of learning about it, the chemo would only be a temporary delay.  We really don't know enough to be able to assess this for her.

And we don't know what quality of life she would have.  She may not have been able to give anything to get children and been more of a burden to her husband having to cate for her on top of the kids.

That's why I will never judge what should be done in these situations. There are too many unknowns both ways and I have no ability to get inspiration for them so I will be supportive of whatever way they choose.

I had my first chemo today and so far I'm not feeling terrible.    I had a pet scan on Monday and no mets showed so that is good. 

Thanks for asking.

Interesting how many pro-choice people in the comments condemn her choice.

If she rushed into a burning building, saving a child but dying in the process, we wouldn't be having this conversation.  We would praise her as a hero who sacrificed her life so a child could live, even though she was leaving her family without a mother. 

But people insist on using pro-life and pro-choice political excrement to obfuscate the issue.  This isn't politics. It's love and sacrifice and faith. And ultimately her agency.

Delete it. You don't owe them a thing.

Sending out fake invoices has been a thing for forever. I used to get them by mail starting in the early 1990s. Fax as well. Some people pay them, which is why they still do it.

Mormon Life / Re: PRAYER LIST
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:02:00 am »
Once again, the sincere prayer of far off brothers and sister have reached the ears of the Lord. How grateful I am for the power of prayer and that I can ask and people respond.  I am far better today. As I get older it takes me a little more time to reset than it used to.  I am like one of those bop em blow up clowns from the last generation where you gave them a punch and they'd roll right back up. Well, I have lost a little air and it takes abit longer.

Himself and I had a good conversation about our new family circumstance and although we are not totally in step, we are a team and are facing this challenge together.

My anxiety attack has passed.  Not throwing in the towel  today :)

People are still going the extra mile to help flooded or stranded people in Beaumont. The president of the Hovercraft Co. brought two of his vehicles from Illinois to help. The Coca-Cola Co. has a warehouse & told the Beaumont FD the building was full of bottled water & beverages but flood waters prevented most vehicles from approaching it. The Hovercraft owner & a firefighter maneuvered up to the marooned warehouse, broke in, & loaded water onto the Hovercraft to take to evacuees.

And a couple whose wedding was postponed by the storm had planned a dinner for their family & friends, & they had the food sent to evacuees & helped prepare the meals

I don't know that they helped directly- but more humidity in the air and lower temps and less windy conditions are helping! The 210 freeway is back open for the first time since Friday afternoon and all evac orders are lifted, and containment is up to 30%!

I think not having heavy rain is a blessing.... Because that could lead to mud/debris slides and flash flooding in the burn area and adjacent. So far it's working out just enough to help.

4 firefighters have been treated, but only for dehydration. I've been so impressed with how well they handled this, high winds and 100 foot flames Friday and Saturday could have led to much more injuries easily and the only structures lost were those initial 3 isolated ones that weren't defensible because the brush was not cleared around them.

The good news is that a new fridge isn't going to cost you anywhere near as much as what's coming in. So it won't make a huge dent in your plans to pay down your debts. And it will be much more energy efficient, which will save you money on your electric bills as well as your grocery bill since food won't spoil so quickly.
