Trust the Gene Genie

I don't know about you all, but I'm tired of seeing that picture of Hillary.

It's been nearly two months, so let me take care of some housekeeping and then in the next couple of days we can move forward with more substansive posts. You know, important things like where my favorite spot on my back is.

But first, let's talk U2. (I hear the collective groan out there). Becky and I got down to Sacramento a couple weekends ago and saw U2 3D. It was incredible. The film was shot in high definition and was, obviously, in 3D. We saw it on an IMAX and so the experience was just overwhelming. And the music was pretty good, too. If you really want my full-blown take on the film let me know, otherwise, I'll leave it here. (I hear those sighs of relief).

General Conference is this weekend -- a big deal for us Mormons as we'll be sustaining a new president and prophet, a relatively rare experience in the church. The past president, Gordon B. Hinckley, had been prophet for 13 years and beloved by members of the church. For most of the youth, he was the only president they'd known. So, the bishop and I are taking the 16 and 17 year-old boys in the ward out to Salt Lake this week to attend conference. We'll all stay at Mom and Dad's and drive back early Monday morning. I'm actually pretty excited.

Lastly, if you look to the right, you'll see the links list updated. There's a lot of talent in this area now committing their skills to the internets. Good friends Jim Dyar, Doni Greenberg, Ian Ballentine and Phil Fountain have blogs and they're well worth a visit. And Jayson's mom, the regal and hilarious Sylvia Wilkinson now has Web pressence, detailing her adventures as a grandmother of quintuplets. Trust me, check it out.

Also, a big congratuations to Ryan Jensen. The old chap got married and had a small reception at his parent's home this weekend. In Kaysville. You couldn't have waited a week, Jense?
