I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down– Nehemiah 6:3, as quoted by Elder Dieter Uchtdorf at the Priesthood session of General Conference tonight. Am I doing a great work? Or is what I’m doing a sign that I’ve been “distracted” from the great work I *should* be pursuing?
Getting revenue early will lead you to more revenue opportunities, and you will...– True Ventures: The VC Startup (RWW Interview) - ReadWriteWeb (via hiten) Dean’s take: I believe this to be true… and it’s just about time for us to test it in the real world.

Still lots to get done
Working hard to whittle down the list of To-Do tasks to get ready to pull back the curtain a little on the Genlighten Rails Alpha.

The bishop of their new ward in Arizona asked him if he and his wife would speak in sacrament meeting. Husband said yes. Wife hates to give talks. Was mortally ill at the thought… dreaded it every moment. Sunday morning, she just...
South Davis Family History Fair wrap-up

She eventually came back while I was talking to someone and snuck around behind me to get to the stamp. Forgive me, but I sure hope she didn’t win anything.
