Elder Wirthlin

One last post for the day. We were sad when we found out that Laura's Grandad died. My absolutely favorite talk he ever gave is the one he gave the Conference after Laura's Grandma died. When you listen to it, it is beautiful. Click here to listen to Sunday Will Come.

I'm insulted by my dads pictures of me

I guess he thought it would be funny to put the worst possible picture of me at the bottom of the page. (The one where I look like a four year old who didn't get the "best" tasting lollipop.) To reflect how I feel look at this picture.

The Winner of the Poetry Championship Series

A few weeks ago I reported on the poetry contest that I started at work. I had 31 entries. If you want to see all of them click here. Overall, it was a great time.

I prepare a pretty intricate worksheet to try to simulate the BCS system. The spreadsheet is here. The spreadsheet is sorted from first to last.

Yesterday, at our regular monthly firm meeting, I awarded the first prize to a Ute . . . Unfortunately. Her name is Katy Steffey. Here is the winning poem:

Jan Jorgensen plays for the Y
He's one of their mouthier guys
He says they're the best
but we're unimpressed
We've seen how their quarterbacks cry!

The best part of giving the award was that I got to keep the Best of the '80s CDs. Like I said, all BYU fans are still living in the 80s.

I don't have enough creative power for a title

Hey, I don't know what to do so I'll put on Hitler reacting to BYU's loss.


I have had a busy few weeks. Let me report on Thanksgiving. We had Thanksgiving with Laura's family at noon. Her brother and sister and their children, her parents, and Aunt Gay all came over and we ate a lot. It was really good food. We had planned to have the dinner at Laura's parents house but decided our place might be a better venue since we had lots of toys and fun things to do for the children. Consequently, although we provided the venue, everyone else brought the food. It was a good time.

At 3:00 p.m., we all got in the car and headed to Scott's parent's house. We had Thanksgiving with his brother, Steve, and his children, Grandma Crook. The food was good. The kids were stuffed and we had lots of fun. We've attached a slide show to the right.
