    Great to see how Mark is progressing. We were missionaries together in Spain—never companions, but he spent the night at my apartment once, and we proselytized together, the next day. The guy is amazing, one of the best missionaries (and people) I’ve ever known.

    Congrats on baby William!

    In the event Coach Rose should move on this young man is considered by some to be the #1 candidate to replace him.

    It is true about Shaquille O'Neal! He lives here part-time in Georgia and he does have a house near me. He lives in a decent neighborhood not too fancy. He was at our local Publix grocery store and I ended up in line right behind him. At first I thought wow that dude is tall then I realized who he was. He was so nice to everyone in the store. He paid for the groceries of the older lady in line in front of him. I was very impressed! I was too shy to ask for a picture with him. He truly is one of a kind!

    Great story. I love the approval from the Deseret News to allow men or women to wait to find the right person before they get married. Even if that is until they are 40.

    So much for the old Mormon culture.

    I understand Mormons used to do something called "home teaching" also.
