i just got off the phone with my dad, who has some kind of responsibility in his kh, i forget all the terms now, but he does the accounting.
he's told me that they no longer have congregations doing their individual tax returns, but the society does it all now.
so i innocently asked what that means "like you don't tabulate the donations anymore, you send the info to the society, and they submit it to the government?".

what foreign language or languages do you enjoy most listening to, though you may not be able to understand the words?
i find several foreign languages pleasant to listen to, french with its refinement, italian with its sing song musical quality, and german with its coarse but resolute intonation.
i also like the sound of russian and castillian spanish.

where you could easily find a tile-setter, dry-waller, painter, house for sale/rent, job... while in the org., now these things are harder to come by?.
i just want to build a house!.

a neighbor told me about the book, "the secret".
i read it and thoroughly enjoyed.
it places emphasis on the "universe" but can be understood to be a supreme being (god).

the other day i asked my hubby what we were going to do this year on halloween.
he said, hide out in the basement with the lights off as usual.. i wasn't going for that this year.

sometimes you have a friend that falls on hard times.
their health fails, they lose their jobs, they spend their last dollar -- whatever.
they don't have anything good on the horizon.
