My ward started using wine a few months ago.
Well, that's a relief. I was afraid you were going to say you started using Coca-Cola!   :o

I think we may have a copyright violation case. There is an overnight bus service between Los Angeles & San Francisco, where people pay for a compartment with a bed & nighttime amenities so they can be ready in the morning for whatever they are doing in the arrival city. And they are calling this bus the "Cabin." >:(

Punkin has been excited all morning since she heard about this. She is fascinated with bats & still does the bat census around the Cabin several nights a week. I told her these were probably dangerous, predatory vampires & have been "relocated," meaning they could have been euthanized & no one is saying so, but she is hoping a few got away & are headed this way.

Sigh. Pets can be just like kids sometimes.

Redd has a thread asking for ideas for bug-out bags in case of TEOTW, so we need to tell her to include Comfort Cheetos. Snack size is good because they're easy for little kids to carry around or stick in a pocket or backpack.

I'm about to go to the store - must remember to get Cheetos! :p

News of the Church / BYU on the way to "party school" reputation
« on: September 22, 2017, 05:01:12 pm »
This has been ALL over the news. :D I first heard it on a national network newscast yesterday. Obviously it is a momentous event, finding its way onto media that normally cover major world events.

Yeah, I can't remember now the difference between accounts. But I was thinking a joint account required all parties to withdraw, while joint tenancy meant any of the parties had access.

Anyway ... what's done is done, the money is gone & the old decrepit fridge is still there. I think Iggy ought to just quit using it, IOW not keep any food around that's perishable. What hint that the old clunker is ready to retire could be stronger than that?

Lookie here, 4 whole days without a post on this thread. And with all the sensational & bizarre related events & statements that have been flying around. Maybe the Nauvoodle neighborhood is getting weary of all the political stuff & is settling down to live normal lives again. :)

** Dodges as a golf ball comes sailing by & barely misses drilling me in the back.  **

Look out, Punkin. You too, Ivie. It isn't safe for kitty cats around here. Let's go back to the Cabin before someone grabs you.

I'm sorry to hear about your family's loss, Roper. You will all be in my prayers for comfort.

Glad to hear you are settled in & ready to receive Nauvoodle guests.  :)  I have been through Santaquin a time or two but don't know much about it, but I do like the Nephi, Moroni, Mt. Nebo scenic drive area. It also seems like the Lord's hand was in your decision to move when you did, so you could be near your parents when they needed you. Blessings to all of you.

Agreed, Palmetto_gal: the Bishop is not the one to ďsolveĒ this situation, but I think itís worth Iggy talking with him.
 
This situation is not just about the $4000 or the fridge. Itís about the broader subject of the nature of a marriage or family relationship, something a bishop is entitled to divine inspiration to counsel people about. Itís about the unilateral actions of any family member that adversely affect other family members. And, as a couple of Nauvoodles suggested, if there is any question of addiction, the Church definitely has a role in helping both the addicted person & those hurt by the addiction.

Being single, all I can do is cobble my own definitions from Church doctrine & teachings of Church leaders & people who have experience with marriage & family life. But it seems that a marriage is a partnership of people who need to communicate with each other, who have needs as a couple, as parents if applicable, & as individuals, & all those needs must be considered before anyone in the partnership makes a big decision that impacts the other(s). No one is going to get everything he/she wants, but no one (adult) should feel he/she was left out of a decision-making process & their needs disregarded.

Bro. Iggy may believe he is making the best decision for the financial future of them both. Maybe he is, maybe he isnít. He might well be the greatest investment wizard in the history of American finance. But shouldnít the decision to take 80% of a newly acquired asset to use for ANY purpose be something both people should weigh into?

The principle would apply equally if they had come into a $5000 windfall & Iggy decided to spend $4000 on new furniture, garden plants, or a flock of chickens, all of which could have enhanced both their lives together but would still be a unilateral choice that should have Mr. Iggyís input.

Joint decision-making is especially critical if one party spends the money on a discretionary expense, hobby, etc. (& yes, stock market speculation is a hobby) when the family has genuine needs that could also be addressed with that newly acquired asset.

BTW, if this is a joint account, arenít both signatures required to transfer funds?

Another dangerous hurricane, Maria, now Category 5, is approaching some of the Caribbean islands that already took a beating from Irma.

http://www.sfgate.com/news/world/article/Hurricane-Maria-heads-toward-already-battered-12205159.php

Prayers going forth for folks on Puerto Rico, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Martinique, St. Kitts, & other islands that can ill afford another severe storm. :(

I'll just add on to this, that Mexico has had another disastrous earthquake, an estimated 7.1 that killed 149 known people & did extensive damage in & around Mexico City.

Prayers going forth for people affected by this latest calamity.

I feel weird giving myself the Thousand Year Egg Award, but since I established it, I would be derelict in my duty if I neglected this milestone, wouldn't I? :D :D

Now I should slow down & give Roper a chance to catch up.

OK, just donít tell me itís there, lol. Is Iggy in there now? If so, someone go knock on the door & tell her Iím just putting out a chicken noodle casserole, spinach salad, & streusel topped apple pie. There will also be century eggs for party favors, because itís my 1000-post celebration.

Goody, I had no idea you had set up such a room in my cabin. I don't want to know about it. When I've wanted to hit something, I'd go out back & cut up some firewood or something, so in my mind the Cabin itself would always be a quiet, tranquil place. If someone hits, kicks, or breaks anything in this secret room that I had no idea was installed in my Cabin, please put everything away afterward, lock the room, & don't tell me anything about it.  :D

Back to relaxing, low-stress Cabin news - some California critters may be about to receive a windfall. An accident in Sacramento dumped a truckload of dog food on the highway. In such cases, the shipper often doesn't retriever the goods, but donates what is useable to a charity & writes off the cost.

Now I'm going to try to take a nap with a couple of the cats, although it might not feel the same now. Come over here, Punkin.

Or maybe he'll move to the US where the university slots aren't so rigid...
This was sort of what I had in mind. Either that or virtually connecting with an institution where he might have a chance to demonstrate his abilities & talents without necessarily having the diploma. Either way, the chances might be better in the U.S. where occupational paths are not always so stringently defined, & he might have an opportunity to show what he knows & what he can do instead of what documents he has.

Either way, prayers will continue for David & the rest of the Jade family.

Wait Ö you have been using the same fridge for 7 years that was broken when you moved in, & it doesnít keep veggies fresh, & the freezer does everything but freeze properly, & you canít get parts anymore, & you got $5000 from a land sale & intended to pay off $2500 in debts plus buy a new fridge that both of you knew was desperately needed Ö & now DH has put $4000 into the stock market & youíre left with $1000, the same $2500 in debts, & the same decrepit fridge?

Wow. :o

If I were your DH, Iíd be afraid to go to sleep!
