Re: Mormons gonna morm...and build that investment portfolio!

I cannot wrap my head around being in a church where you get excited that your church is dropping $350 MILLION dollars in a week on a luxury hotel in Maui and farmlands while holding a massive public relations event to talk about giving $3 million in scholarships to the NAACP over three years. It w...

Re: Happy Summer Solstice!

Have a fun Midsummer Day tomorrow! Mead, whole suckling pigs, singing around the bonfire, and Maypole dancing. Just remember to only apply tobacco as poultices for your livestock. https://www.almanac.com/sites/default/files/styles/primary_image_in_article/public/image_nodes/midsummer-sweeden-artesia...

Did the plans in your post happen before or after Iosepa, Dear Penguin?
The ill-fated Iosepa was after. One of the families that remained had really pretty great-granddaughters.

John, do you have any historical data on why the names Satan and Santa are so similar?

Re: Problems interacting with normal people as a family...

If you invite the normal soccer people over, it would be good to have some adult beverages. The trick is to let them be happy, but not sloppy drunk. They need to drive home safely. Tell your wife to grin and be gracious. Is it a beer crowd or wine crowd or mixed? Just ask to find out.

Mormon Plan for Polynesian Empire

Always difficult to know where to put topics. Clearly, this is not doctrinal nor is it a call for support. Creating a Mormon Empire in Polynesia seems political, and I've been told that the Coffee Shop is the place for politics since who among the faithful would be caught dead in a Coffee Shop? Anyw...

They've already announced that the October general conference will be virtual only. That doesn't sound back to normal at a global level.
