Re: NPR broadcast this Saturday

Radio West is doing a follow up interview with these folks today.

Seems like a good listen to get even more insight int...

Re: Annual Membership Drive (my church)

Before I raise my hand and utter the words, I'll be preparing my own sacraments of jazz cabbage and fermented fruit beverages. With those I'll make a pilgrimage to my backyard rameumptom where I shall watch the sunset and partake.

Re: Connection to Christianity Waning...

However, I now feel like I’m drifting away from Christianity as well. I believe there’s a loving God out there, but I think this can be the case independent of Christianity. This was me a few years ago, thinking I might try to just get back to some bible basics with Jesus. But the critical thinking...

Re: Reefer Madness

Can I just say how Fing cool it would be to have CA rules for booze and MJ in UT!? I just got back from San Diego, going in a grocery store is a treat, walking up and down 3-4 rows of pretty bottles and cans. Even in a small Vons grocery story the selection is better than a UT liquor store. They had...

Re: Reefer Madness

Would there be any issue in obtaining the medical MJ from NV or CO and bringing it in to UT for medical use? If the state makes it difficult to obtain despite its legality, other markets exploiting the legal loopholes will certainly open up. So we know with alcohol the COB had the hill put together...

I like a blonde roast with a little creamer. Straight black is too bitter for me.
The only time I've enjoyed straight black is when a friend brought me back some Kona beans from Hawaii. If you ever get a chance to try that do it!

Re: Reefer Madness

Yes, it was disappointing to see the status quo vote straight republican; would be nice to see some shift there, but seeing props get some attention and see the public opinion expressed is good. Now we'll see the church broke legislators F up the proposal to make it in their own image. I thought we ...

Re: It gets better?

Lots of good advice here, easier said than done! polygamy and BoM historicity, but she feels that the spirit’s confirmation and science have vindicated any concerns. That statement is very confusing to me. I can't figure out how science would vindicate anything in the church, but actually does the c...
