Thoughts and Things

Politics takes a large part of our attention these days. It's still almost 2 months until the election, but it seems as if the campaign has gone on forever. I trust that you are all reading and listening to a variety of sources and thinking about what kind of future you want for America. Your vote is important.

Ike has hit Texas. TF, I hope you and your family are okay. I hope everyone is okay. It has to be tough to live near the Gulf coast during hurricane season.

The worst of summer's heat is past, thankfully. I'm not looking forward to winter, but I sure like autumn, when the temperatures are moderate and the leaves turn to marvelous colors. The only bad thing is the havoc fall pollen wreaks on my sinuses!

Genealogy is going well, if slowly. I have my four generations and some of the fifth. I am learning about the new Family Search, although I still have a lot to learn. I've been to some meetings, helped with a presentation to our ward, and am working through the lessons.

Life goes on.

I do hope everyone is in safe shelter and far away from any danger. We have a lot of people call for reservations who are evacuating but most are sold out where they want to go.

In regards to family history, you should email Mattai from Nauvoo if you have any questions. He has taught family history for years and years. I think Pink Floyd has also been involved in something as of late.--Barb

Hi, Barb! I hear things are bad in some parts of Texas. I hope for the best for everyone there.

Thanks for the reminder about Mattai and Pink Floyd. I have some experienced teachers in my ward, but you never know when I might need additional help with questions!!

Thanks for the kind thought, yes we are okay. I have limited time to use for "playing" on the internet with other things to do. Thanks again. TF

TF, I dropped by your blog and saw that you were okay. I expect you do have limited computer time for now, but thanks for stopping by to confirm that you and your family are doing all right.
