Anna Nicole Smith is Dead…

This is not the kind of thing I would normally write about, but none the less here it is.  Anna Nicole Smith is dead, says her Lawyer Howard K. Stern.  The story is reported by FOX News HERE.  In september of last year her 20 year old son died suddenly in the hospital just 3 days after Anna had given birth to her newest son. 

Smith was found unresponsive this afternoon in her hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida just after 2 pm EST.

Polygamy site Returns!

News comes fast here folks.  I stepped away for a few hours and I missed it.  The polygamy.byu.edu site has found a new home at http://www.mormon-polygamy.org/  It looks a bit prettier than before as opposed to the stock BYU pages.  Thanks to Chino who posted this in the story below about the site being taken down.  More news to follow later.  If you are just surfing in check out this post here.  Be sure to read comments as well.

Polygamy website gets shut down!

Recently a BYU professor hosted a website providing links and easy to find information from LDS church history on the subject of polygamy at the BYU website polygamy.byu.edu.  In it you could ask such questions as “Did Joseph Smith marry young girls?” or “What do current Church leaders say about Polygamy”  You could find all you wanted to know and very concise answers to your questions.  It was published at the end of January.  The site was then posted on By Common Consent  a popular LDS blog by linking to it on a sideblog on Saturday Feb 3rd. 

Monday afternoon Feb 5th it was pulled from the BYU site with no real explanation.  The Salt Lake Tribune published this article today that goes into some detail about the removal of the website.  I was able to save the content of the site if anyone is interested I can e-mail it to you or you can do a search and view the cached pages from google windows live, whatever you choose. 

It is difficult to find unbiased information on hot topics such as polygamy and Mormons.  It pushes buttons and makes some uncomfortable.  This website was a great source for historical information that clarifies many issues.  There are many sites such as the apologetic FAIRlds and others that provide some information.  But an easy to search directory had not been implemented until polygamy.byu.edu was launched.  But as quickly as it came it went.

 It will be interesting to follow as more information arises.  I would not be surprised to see the proprietors of the polygamy.byu.edu to reopen elsewhere in the next few days.  Keep posted.

Shame on CBS… (The Death of Super Commercials!!!)

Yesterday I eagerly anticipated the Superbowl for it action packed game and witty commercials.  Don’t forget about the Super Bowl Proposal see mysuperproposal.com.  I knew that I would miss the first half due to a “family dinner”  That’s OK I said.  I can record it and watch it when I get home.  Before I left I got to see the kick off and the amazing 92 yard return for a touch down by the Bears Hester.  I knew it was going to be an exciting game.

Brown Paper Packages

Many of you are familiar with the following lyrics. 

 Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Man Made Life

Today at lunch I took the opportunity to go outside.  All day it has been grey and cloudy and rather quite beautiful.  I call it beautiful only because I am a native Phoenician and we don’t get too many days like that.  I was able to drive to work under those skies and then was quickly locked away into my office that has no connection to the outside world.  There are no visible windows on the second floor of our office building unless I walk into the Owners or GM’s office.  I am trapped within an 8′ by 8′ room with a door.  So I gladly took an hour away from my desk to walk along a man made lake near my office.  I wanted to walk and think about what direction my life was taking.  Where I was heading.
