No, Alex. We believe God led (or inspired) various families, groups and individuals to come to HisRead More "Promised" or "chosen" land, reserved for a righteous people. The first family group thus described in the "Book of Mormon" as "led" by God, to what came to be known as the Americas, was the family of Lehi. Younger son Nephi and others were obedient to God's commands and blessed, while his brother Laman (and others) were lazy, jealous, disobedient and warred against the Nephites. God did not want the righteous Nephites to intermarry with the wicked Lamanites, so he cursed the latter with dark skin so that they would be visibly distinguished and separate.------------------------------------------- If you have more questions, please ask a Mormon friend, or invite Mormon missionaries in to answer them. Many FAQs are also on the website: www.mormon.org

Lack of internet access (in terms of trolling email/facebook/news) is the Kindle Paperwhite'sRead More biggest benefit as far as I'm concerned. I can focus on the book and only the book, which is great for the highly-distractable folks like me. Also, borrowing and returning books from the library is easy. It's fantastic for traveling -- load up with books and return them when you get home. Ironically, I love books -- real books, printed on paper -- my house is full of them and I don't want "the real thing" to go away. It's also ironic that I'm reading more than ever now that I have the Kindle -- the adjustable nature of the lighting, fonts, spacing, etc., helps my eyes, especially at night.

Cesar Milan is a bully, he is not a certified dog trainer....pit bulls exceed most other breeds inRead More temperament tests. ANY breed of dog can bite given the right conditions. To link up with a site that hates a breed is very irresponsible of The Patch. People should learn how to treat, train and socialize all dogs. A pit bull is not a demon, they are a dog, they have lived in The White House, as the first decorated war dog hero for saving his unit, used as service dogs, Helen Keller's favorite seeing eye dog, owned by countless movie stars and many loving families, as therapy dogs and drug dogs for law enforcement. The pittie is was known as the nanny dog because of their good natures. They do not make good guard dogs, human aggression has been bred out of them that is why thugs try to use them to fight. Educate yourself on dogs, I'm sick of defending them to people who are easy to judge without any real knowledge....many of these sensational attacks are different breeds, many people wouldn't know a pit bull from many other breeds. Big head, oh must be a pit. Educate yourself these dogs die in shelters every day because of ignorance. Why is this even in the Lower Moreland Patch, this is not national news! Do yourself a favor and read about dogs and warning signs before spouting off. Most dogs will only bite as a last defense, it is their only defense, there are very few unsound dogs compared to bad owners and foolish people. A pit bull is simply a dog. A good family breed if you do your homework.
Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?

Definitely will add these to my long, long list of "to reads". Maybe I'll live longRead More enough to get to them all. Just finished an oldie but goodie ... but you know? The stories only stay with me for a while, I read so much that I forget what I've already read and after the first few pages, I get into it again and often continue since I liked it the first time around. There will never be enough hours in any day to read all I want to and thank goodness and God for Goodreads and, of course, my library and you, Danielle, for adding to my lists. Was offered a Kindle but know what? I really prefer to hold that book in my lap to read, plus I prefer to use my library ... it's FREE, for goodness sake, why would I pay to read anything but a newspaper? And, even that can be gotten at the library. If nothing else, I just love the smell of a library! (Sorry for my longwinded-ness ... just love, love books.)
Mamie Huggins April 20, 2014 at 08:37 am
Hey Anna - I'm a book lover too and use the library on occasion. But it's not FREE as you say, it'sRead More paid for by us taxpayers. Also, when I buy a book, especially by an unknown and/or local author, I'm helping that person to keep writing.
Anna Bucciarelli April 20, 2014 at 05:48 pm
Of course you're right Mamie but if I don't have to part with an additional penny from my pocket IRead More feel it's a treat. And you're right too about keeping authors writing I especially like books by new, first-time novelists who often surprise me with the wonder of their words.

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...
Notbricktrash April 22, 2014 at 01:04 pm
This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate

Great article. I also advise students to borrow prudently. Working while in school can substantiallyRead More impact living expenses that a student may otherwise want to include into a loan. While this borrowing for living expenses appears to be a good idea, many students look back with regret when they have to bypass the trappings that accompany being employed in favor of making loan payments. I also discuss other options including military service. Most families would benefit from making an appointment with the institution's Office of Financial Aid. This will allow a family to not only understand the process but also provide an opportunity to discuss any extenuating circumstances your family is facing.

Anyone who has ever seen a new litter of puppies will notice that some in the litter are bold andRead More daring while others are shy and cautious. (Check out "Too Cute" on Animal Planet Saturdays) They haven't had a chance to learn anything yet, but their inherited personalities are already obvious. Dogs have been bred for specific purposes since they were first bred from wolves. Inbred personalities should be taken into consideration when training a new puppy. You'll find that it's a lot easier to train your border collie to herd your chickens than to break him/her of chasing them because it is an inbred drive/desire. Other breeds would ignore the birds entirely. Most pit bull owners know their dogs and train/treat them accordingly. Others don't provide the training and socialization needed. These are the people who sue the police when their dog gets shot while attacking an innocent victim. They can't believe that their dog was capable of hurting anyone, therefore the police must have shot the wrong dog. This situation has been in the news far too often to be coincidence. Owners must be responsible for knowing, training and controlling their dogs. I can't imagine the heartbreak of losing a treasured pet, then being hit with a lawsuit because they had so much faith in their pet's good behavior that they let them roam the neighborhood.
