This is just one of the myriad things I LOVE about our Nauvoodles.  I know I will always find at least one (if not many) Nauvoodles reaching out to help another.

It started snowing at about 2:00 on Friday afternoon.  As soon as the kids got home from school, they grabbed gloves and went outside.

In a message sent to Church leadership and to be read in worship services throughout the world, the Council of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced changes for future general conferences.

The letter states that "beginning in April 2018, the general women's session will no longer be held on the Saturday preceding the other sessions of general conference. Rather, the general priesthood and general women's sessions will each be held annually, with the general priesthood session being in April and the general women's session being in October." It continues, "These meetings will originate from the Conference Center on Saturday evening following the morning and afternoon sessions of the conference."

According to the letter, consolidating general conference sessions into one weekend furthers Church efforts "of reducing and simplifying the work of the Church and the demands made upon leaders and members."

For the record, you can put a master password onto Chrome's storage of your passwords, so no one can look at them in there without the master password.  I also use dual or two-factor authentication with my Google account.

I've always liked the way Zeiss lenses render images.  They have a way of making the separation of foreground/background look almost 3-D. And the lens coatings produce a very natural palette of colors. The only problem is that they're really expensive.  New ones are usually over $1000, for one prime lens. Zooms are easily double that. I found an older Zeiss 50mm lens in excellent condition.  It was made before auto focus really caught on, so it's completely manual.  I got it for a screamin' deal, and with a $35 adapter, it's a gem on my camera.  I used it for some shots of Sarah-Grace this weekend for her seven month birthday.

Nope. But why not be excited for you, Patty? It would be an adventure, right? :)

Actually the trip to Egypt is really a vacation. 2017 seems to be the year we are catching up on all the fallow years when even eating at the Golden Arches was a very big deal.

Because BritGirl is so adamant about the safety of Egypt I started saving to go 3-4 years ago.  First I thought we would go to celebrate our meet-a-versary and engagement   ( that we celebrate in October) but the unrest sort of dissuaded Himself.   This year on 27 August was our 25th anniversary.  He was in Brazil. He felt guilty.

So we decided in July to go visit the travel agent ( I did not want to do a cheap seat of the pants wander in the desert  without travel agency assurance, and I wanted a sail on a dahabiya https://g.co/kgs/qrgVrz on the Nile.)

When we got home from meeting this engaging Egyptian agent who ticked ALL the boxes, I emptied my savings onto the Professor's lap and it was exactly what we needed for our  "honeymoon."  Kismet.

And so Saturday is the day.....

We also leave on 21 December ( his birthday) for Tromso Norway to see  the Aurora Borealis over Christmas break.  That planning distracted us from our miserable two months of not speaking to Sweetpea.

I still have a couple of place sI want to go see before  I get a dog and stop traveling.

I have not tooted my horn much on Facebook lest I get green eyed push back.  This is our 25 wedding trip. I saved very hard for it and it's my gift to Himself because he deserves every bit of it.
The day we made our first visit to the Egypt travel agent was the day Sweet pea got herself all upset...she was so full of herself that afternoon she never even stopped to ask how our appointment went.  We were in heaven,and laughed all the way home.  She put a real cloud on us.   Now she's talking again but Boy is in trouble.
I just wanted my A to have a stress free work free no worry get away.   We leave 7 October.
We arrive back 18 days later and 72 hours after that I fly to Denver til 20 November.  That's a story in itself.
But I harvested all morning and mowed and raked the lawn so I need to go shower.   I just sat down to take a breather. xxx

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.

About  a third of the mandatory evacuation orders got lifted tonight. That likely means the firefighters will able  leave structural defense mode of that and start to get more containment tomorrow... I hope. As long the other areas of housing don't become more threatened and need more personnel.

We are very close to the fire. Our house isn't in danger- fire would have to come through literally 400+ structures to reach us from the closest spot- but a few ward members and more stake members evacuated. (One ward member is also a block from an evac line and posted a pic from helping her neighbor evac their horses- one evac center is taking animals. So my friends hauled food for them in their truck while their neighbors rode and led the horses down.)

I have asthma and smoke can be a major trigger, but have closed-system a/c we've been able to keep running, I not only have an inhaler but my dad dropped off a nebulizer and started me on steroids. I don't enjoy prednisone, but I 100% prefer icky side effects and breathing without any issues to using albuterol constantly. I'm blessed to have a doctor dad whom I can text to say "I need a prednisone burst" and he just calls it in without me having to go in the smoke see anyone! My mom's asthma is also under control and my sister's managing hers ok with minimal albuterol. We're all heeding the warnings to stay in and run the a/c.

2 families in my city have lost homes. Prayers for them, those threatened/evaced, and especially the brave firefighters from 6 agencies protecting us are appreciated. We are dedicating our fast to pray for calming of the winds, maybe some rain (50% chance predicted tomorrow) and protection for the firefighters. This is a natural process but I believe God is definitely protecting our firefighters! It has been wonderful to see community support for them too.

Thank you for the concern.  :-*

There just HAS to be news worthy of discussion that does not mention or allude to the current POTUS.  He is NOT the center of the universe.

PattyRain, no SS is still men and women together, the 3rd hour manuals are combined as follows: Aaronic and Melc. priesthood will have the same manual; RS and YW will have the same manual. Youth SS will use the same manual as the adult SS class.

I understood it is not a 'ley's talk about how we can help sister x struggling with pornography' but let's talk how we can support someone we know who struggles with pornohraphy whether it is a spouse, child, parent or friend and what can I do if it's me'

We've always had the 4th Sunday lesson chosen by RS presidency & priesthood presidencies.
