A little more self reliant

This is not tech based but I wanted to share it anyway. My family has tried to do a garden for the last few years, so this year we stepped it up a little. Last year an animal came along and ate the tops off all my plants, so this year I’ve added fencing to my garden, it was about $25 for fence and stakes. I’ve also added ground cover to prevent weeds. We planted green beans, tomatoes, peppers, corn, broccoli, onions, carrots, strawberries and a couple types of melon. Also in order to do the garden a little more GREEN, I collected just over 50 gallons of rain water to use on the garden. I’ve found that gardening can be done just about anywhere. I’ve created a planter out of a milk crate, and in a nearly useless space in my front yard.



Mormon Channel and Roku

I’ve seen the Alpha! Mormon Channel for Roku is in the works. They are striving to make it possible to stream conference!

Genealogical Research and Tech

There is a reason we have so much technology, because it can be used to forward the Gospel. Genealogical research is something that is strongly encouraged in the church, and we are given great tools to make it easy. In a recent Church News article, Ryan Morgenegg wrote that receives more than 10 million hits a day, and has had 15 Billion since it’s launch. Have any of those hits been yours? Let us know, leave a comment.
