    I'll always be a MLB and Red Sox fan. I enjoy watching MLB because I played the sport and cannot say the same thing about soccer. All my kids played both baseball/softball and soccer. Watching youth...

    Probably was retribution for when the University of Arizona bullied my kids' Texas high school to stop using their logo some years ago.

    My kids all seem to have liked EFY. It was a good excuse to get them to spend some time on BYU campus to see if they liked the setting. So we made sure each kid got to Provo at least once through EFY...

    I made my annual pilgrimage to the San Juan mountains in SW Colorado a little earlier in the year than usual in order to attend a nephew's wedding in Utah on the front end of my trip. Before I headed...

    While you are in a low tax bracket, I recommend you do Roth conversions from traditional IRA to Roth IRA instead of waiting until 70.5 and RMDs kick in. On the IRS web site, there are tables to...

    Solid review. I give the movie a B+ as well, only it has taken me longer than a weekend to get Elton John from playing in my head. Wish they would have used Elton John's voice and just lipped synced...

    Interesting, for many years I worked in a building in the telecom corridor about a mile away from the infamous Econo Lodge and still drive by there on my daily commute. I would have thought the motel...

    I backpack in bear country. Most people survive bear encounters/attacks but my wife still thinks that will be my demise.

    Wasn't adoption an option? Have the child, give the child up for adoption, go back to college. There's a good chance she still would have met her future husband, had three additional children, and...

    I solemnly bear witness that Omaha 680 speaks the everlasting truth about Runzas (and their burgers & fries).

    I, for one, don't consider your responses spam. I enjoy reading your well-reasoned arguments and broadening my understanding of legal principles. Similar to how I like to read posts here by doctors...

    Except Dany already knows Jon is a Targaryen and can't be killed by fire. It was hard to see because of the dark cinematography, but essentially Dany already engulfed Jon in dragon fire when when she...

    Not to mention how Dany riding a Dragon at altitude does not spot a fleet of enemy ships. A basic tenet of military strategy is reconnaissance which seems to have been ignored during the last couple...

    I think your death roster is almost spot on. But for Samwell Tarly and maybe Tormund Giantsbane (the last wilding?). Probably need to add Beric Dondarrion to the list. Also think Arya Stark might be...

    As a fellow Texan, I'm interested to learn of your state income tax rate or dollar amount. (hint: they are the same, as in zero).

    Not so sure about the honor code's role in preserving the sanctity of BYU for purposes of preserving high LDS standard in regards to marriage. I think that is why some (many?) use the RM distinction...

    I've been a GOT fan since season 1. During each season, I typically watched each episode several times during the week because I have bouts of insomnia and I just like taking in all the detail. I...

    One good reason for some flexibility in mission duration is college academic calendars. BYU accommodates this with semester blocks but its difficult with other universities especially if a RM has...

    In my stake, Seminary is coordinated at the Stake level not high school level. The number of youths in my stake is similar to a Utah stake. Students attend EMS in their church building and its taught...
