Kia Kaha is Maori for Forever Strong. I often here the question "Why Rugby?" Last night Kel and I saw the movie Forever Strong and it describes why I love Rugby so much. We live in a time when sports is dominated by ego driven jerks. Rugby is a true team sport where for 80 minutes a team has to work together to win. As a Highland Alum I had many friends that played for Highland Rugby. See the movie and you will be forever changed. Kia Kaha!

Total Saturation with the Savior's Gospel

"We begin the process of being born again through exercising faith in Christ, repenting of our sins, and being baptized by immersion for the remission of sins by one having priesthood authority." 'Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life' (Romans 6:4)."And after we come out of the waters of baptism, our souls need to be continuously immersed in and saturated with the truth and the light of the Savior's gospel. Sporadic and shallow dipping in the doctrine of Christ and partial participation in His restored Church cannot produce the spiritual transformation that enables us to walk in a newness of life. Rather, fidelity to covenants, constancy of commitment, and offering our whole soul unto God are required if we are to receive the blessings of eternity. . . ."Total immersion in and saturation with the Savior's gospel are essential steps in the process of being born again."
-David A. Bednar

The last desk you'll ever own.

They call it the “OneLessDesk”. They say it will be “the last desk you’ll ever own”. It’s … quite a desk.

Sleek. Silvery. (Unless you buy the white version.) Made out of solid steel, strong enough to hold two 24 inch flat panels side-by-side, cut from raw sheet metal with lasers, baby.

“Built”, they say, “like an American tank.”

And a steal at just $649.

Biker Babe

Ari getting ready to go for a ride on my scooter.

Sleeping Beauty

Ari loves to listen to all types of music. When my Ipod comes up missing I usually find it attached to her. On Saturday I found her sacked out on the floor with her giant head phones on.
