Roundup: The Go Butler Edition!!

1) LDS Conference*:
Conference was great. I had several issues/questions that I hoped I'd find guidance with and each one (that I remember) were answered. To keep my mind focused, I followed the LDS Conference Twitter Feed. Although there was white noise to filter out, I found that it was valuable for note taking because I could do a quick search for memorable quotes.
Anyway, there were many talks that were memorable, and I may talk about it in length in another post. We'll see.
I did spot my favorite General Authority on Saturday afternoon giving the statistics of the Church:

*LDS General Conference: A bi-annual world conference of the Church, held in April and October, where members gather for five two-hour sessions to listen to instruction from Church leaders. General conference is broadcast via satellite from the Conference Center at Church Headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

2) Conceding Speech: Twitter
Fine, I know I ranted last fall about the fact that Twitter is superfluous. But after realizing that certain food wagons in DC only use Twitter to advertise where they are located, the NPR Monkey See "I'll read it if you read it" Book-club uses twitter, Yankees Reporters use Twitter, I caved this weekend. I still see Twitter as a potential time sucker, but I imagine I'll be on there a little more often.

3) Dear Duke:
Thanks for making it to the NCAABB Title Game. I'm not rooting for you, partly because I had you losing in my Bracket; but thanks to you, I won Smokey's Bracket again and I beat President Obama. Now, I know that because I'm bragging, I'll probably lose badly next year, but for now I'm just happy I won. Even if it means that one of Richard's friends may name their bracket "Kill-Joy" again next year like they did a few years ago.

Best of luck tonight,
Sherpa (Joy)

4) Quakin'
4 months in, and already I wonder if this is "Year of the Quake?" Sheesh. It's almost like we're in God's Major Quake of the Month Club. This keeps up and an earthquake in the low 7's won't be considered news worthy. Glad to hear there's minimal damage down in Baja and S. California.

5) Netflix on Demand? I love you.

Sunday, I discovered that Friday Night Lights season 3 is available on Netflix on Demand. A little Tim Riggins before Conference? Talk about a perfect Sunday.

6) Complete Non Sequitur

Found this picture on FFFound...If it brought a smile to this Cat-Hater, it might bring one to you too.

Hope you all have a great week!

My only problem with the conference Twitter feed was that the internet stream I was watching was behind what people were posting. So I had previews of talks at times. :-) Other than that, I rather enjoy Twitter...

Netflix Instant Play is one of my favorite things. So is Tim Riggins. Season 4 is supposed to air on NBC sometime this spring, and I'm excited for it.

Love the image of Elder Count. Sweet.
I too am worried about quakes, especially since I live in an area due for the biggie. Stink.
