Beefche beat me to the punch.  Papa has the Hepworth genes in full force.  I know you love that little one. He's adorable! What does Sarah Grace think about him?

Doctrines & Scholarship / Re: Gathering

Since I work an evening shift and I am the only person in my department after 7 pm, I have the advantage of listening to audio books.  Just last week I listened to Born to Change the World by Brad Wilcox.  He delves into the tribes of Israel and the gathering of these tribes.  I learned details about the tribes (and also some of the traditions) that I had not known previously.  If you read or listen to it, I'd like to get your reaction.

Doctrines & Scholarship / Re: Cultural learning and King Benjamin

This thread reminds me of the final dedication session of the SC Columbia Temple back in October 1999.  I had the rare blessing to be inside the temple (in one of the sealing rooms) during this session.  President Hinckley spoke about the eternal chain of families and how they are linked by temple ordinances.  He paused a microsecond and then said he hoped he wouldn't be the weak link in his family's chain.  To hear a Prophet of God speak so humbly about himself, worrying he might be a weak link in the chain of his eternal family just floored me.  No self-aggrandizement there.  No sense whatsoever of making himself out to be at any higher level than anyone else in that edifice (just had to use that word here).  It made me reflect on what my responsibilities are concerning family history work and how I might expect more of myself in that regard.  How would I sum it up?  Pure love coupled with motivation.

Ab.so.lute.ly prodigious!  They nailed it. 

(I must admit that my seven decades on earth including the 3 decades I've spent in health-care related occupations, makes me worry about severe neck problems in the future for these remarkable musicians.)

[ETA:  It's now two hours later and I can't get this music out of my head.  Love it.!]

Wishing you much success and fulfillment in your new assignment.  I'm sad for all the new students who won't have you as their teacher.

I would still want the reassurance that the children being questioned and photographed are participating with parental approval.

Do I also go to Children Services since their 5 year old runs around barefoot & in just underpants and rolls all over the 'yard' with the three pit bull dogs [an adult male he has grown up around, a 6 week old female puppy and now his GreatGrandmother's barely adult female

I can't answer that question for you, but if I were planning to take that step, I would have photographic/video evidence, lest it become a "he said-she said" argument.

I'm sure many are rejoicing!  I expected this, but not so quickly.

Iggy, just bide your time.  Ancestry often has their DNA tests available at a reduced rate.  It wouldn't surprise me if they they ran a campaign around Mother's Day or Father's Day.  There's no reason to pay full price when waiting a month or so can save you money, especially since you and Mr. Iggy are both interested in doing this.

Roper, your Sarah-Grace is lovely!  Are her curls natural, or did Michelle style her hair?  She looks so alert and happy!

There are times he speaks for me.  Jacare said it best when he said:

Quote
Having said all that -- I support many of Trump's initiatives. I believe illegal immigration is a serious problem that calls for serious solutions. I believe a border barrier of some kind, whether it be a wall, a fence, or a Star Wars style force field should be one of those solutions; not for the entire 2,000 miles or whatever the length of the border, but strategically placed to augment and enhance whatever other processes are in place.

I believe sanctuary cities are a travesty. They endanger not only the lives of American citizens, but the lives of legitimate immigrants in minority communities, because that's where illegal immigrant criminals are most likely to hang out.

So there are things that Trump supports that I support. There are things that I don't. Either way, Trump debases both himself and his position when he resorts to demagoguery.

And I agree.
