New Link

I have added a new link to the Family Sites list of websites. It's RuiesSpin, a place for LaRue to post her thoughts and her "spin" on things. Her first posting has to do with the impending destruction of the church building in Ephraim that she used to attend.

Here's the link: RuiesSpin

Church Video

The church has posted a short video originally produced for the large number of journalists visiting Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics. It has been updated to help counter persistent myths about the Church.
Myths & Reality was developed as a primer on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

If the video doesn't play you can try going to the LDS site and viewing it there - Church Video
You will have to click the VIDEO tab above the image to view the video.

LaRue and I have seen a couple of movies in the past few weeks.

First was National Treasure: The Book of Secrets.

It is pretty much what you would expect if you saw the first National Treasure movie. A fun "popcorn" movie. And, yes, I rather imagine there will be a third one. My initial title for it would be - National Treasure: Page 47.

Then last night we went to see The Bucket List.

We both really liked this one. There's a good review over at Cinematical.com. Click for their full review - The Bucket List
