A few thoughts from Conference...

Didn't President Uchtdorf make it super clear about the faith of our fathers? What an awesome talk. I think that his wife was the most surprised by his new calling though (like he said at Priesthood session).

For President Monson - 22 as a bishop, but 36 as an apostle - that seems insanely young. But like President Packer said, the average age of the first quorum of the twelve was 28, so I guess President Monson would have been one of the old ones!

I was hoping to get some Elder Zwick's image of Lehi's Vision, but I couldn't find it.

President Monson is hilarious. He sure knows how to get everyone laughing. And as has always been the case, he knows names and has such a vivid memory.

What a weekend

We went to Provo on Friday for a mission reunion. It was weird to see all of these former elders from my mission who I haven't seen in a long time. It was good for Anna though as she was able to catch up with one of her old friends (Masha) and also see some former elders she was good friends with. I think more than half of the former missionaries are majoring in Russian. A lot of them don't even know what they're going to do with it. I am sure glad that I know what I am going to do. Only one more semester left...

We have been enjoying conference this weekend and you can get a recap of the action at www.lds.org of what's been said there. I wish I could find a clip of President Monson wiggling his ears at Priesthood session, but no such luck so far. Also, my wife has been studying her new camera like crazy. She has taken lots of pictures. If you want to see them, then write her and tell her to invite you to her Picasa gallery. If you want to know more about the camera she has, go here.

I am also looking to start a website up for my wife to use for her pictures. I found this great flash program (see this) that I want to use, but I can't get it to work on my localhost machine. If anyone knows a better gallery or something that will work better, let me know. I was just planning on using an Xmission site that my Dad has, but Xmission is still on PHP 4.3 which won't run half the galleries out there, and on top of that it is no longer being supported by PHP (time to update!!!). In any case, that will be a project for me to work on.
I suppose that is all for now, leave me any feedback/comments on your thoughts on anything from conference or if you have a hint on how to get the gallery to work.

My first post.

My first blog post. Hopefully, I will have some time to write some interesting stuff on here. Thanks for viewing my blog.
