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.
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 FamilySearch.org 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.
I’m looking for folks that want to contribute. If you feel you are up for the challenge, making maybe 1 or more posts a week and telling your friends. Send me a message and we can talk. I know I can’t do it all myself. If we get any Ad revenue I am up for sharing. So please think about it and lets chat.
My last review was on the Gospel Library app for Android. The Church did a fantastic job with it and true to form brought us another awesome app. LDS Tools, and I am not talking about those guys that play basketball every week in the cultural hall… (sorry guys) LDS Tools is a powerful way to keep track of people in your ward and stake. Need to know who is in charge of Primary in the other ward? Look no further. You need to be able to log into the church website to be able to use this app. What it does is pull the entire Stake directory into your phone for easy search and use. It keeps addresses, phone numbers and E-mail addresses all at your finger tips. This information is all available on the church website behind passwords you need your membership # to long in. Have no fear it’s not publicly accessible.
An alternative to this program is Ward Central. It works in pretty much the same way, it is more Ward based. There is another version called Stake Central which is just that more Stake oriented. Both are Free (now).
FYI this is also available in the iTunes App store…
Please post your comments and thoughts.
It’s been a couple years and since I’m still paying for the domain and hosting plan, I guess I better use it. MormonCast is what we make it. It started out as a Video blog, now it’s a blog that might have some video. I will be posting items related to things I know well, technology, video production, being a Dad and Church.
and so begins another chapter of MormonCast…
