What am I doing on Facebook?

Why I don't like Facebook.

- I have more friends that I care about. How did I get that many friends.
- I don't care what color of crayon you would be if you were a crayon.
- I have never played Mafia wars, but truthfully I don't give a XXXX. (bad word removed to protect the delicate sensibilities of the children in the crowd).
- This easter egg thing has no redeeming value.
- I feel compelled to log on every day to see if one of my "friends" posted something.
- My real friends won't post anything because they think Facebook is as stupid as I do.
- I have friends that are underaged girls. This is weird. How did that happen? "I swear Judge, they invited me to be their friend."
- I need to get a life. Facebook isn't helping
- Most of my "friends" from high school that are on Facebook wouldn't talk to me when I was in high school. Why are we suddenly friends now?
- Why are there so many stupid polls?
- I seems that everyone has run out of stuff to do on Facebook so they have to keep inventing more stupid applications to give people something to do when they are on Facebook. Otherwise, everyone would get bored and leave. Then Facebook would be like Linkedin. Once you post your information, there isn't much to do except to wait for someone to post something. But since everyone is waiting for someone else to do something, then nothing ever gets posted.
- I can't leave Facebook. All my friends hang out there.
- I would Twitter, but I don't think anyone cares that I'm on the bus, at work, eating lunch, back in my cubicle, back on the bus, or at home hanging out on Facebook because I have no life.

I have got to get a new hobby.

Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?

It is time for the showdown.  Which one is best: Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?  Or is it (as was my opinion) that they are all exactly the same?

I decided to do a taste test.  Six people participated.  Three were salad testers and three were burrito testers.  None of the people who participated have any food judging experience although a couple of them have competed in cooking contests and have a couple of first place finishes to their name.   Each couple went to a different restaurant and picked up a Sweet Pork Salad and an Steak Burrito to go.  We ordered each salad with black beans and their creamy green dressing (whatever they happened to call it).  The steak burritos were ordered enchilada style with black beans. Then we all met at a central location and judged each dish on the following:

Value Score = Weight (oz)/Cost($)
Overall Appeal (visual appeal, aroma, garnish)
Recipe (Cooking, ingredient combination, too moist or dry)
Taste (Flavor combination, Seasoning, Texture)

Using Tags in the Gospel Library App

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about using the highlight feature in the gospel library app to differentiate between gospel topics.

Why do we highlight in the first place?  The answer is simple.  It comes from the day when most people used paper scriptures.  They used colors and highlights to help you find scriptures.  Most of us do not have the time or the capacity to memorize the references for hundreds of scriptures so we relied on the our memory to get us close.  For example, the scripture about the natural man being an enemy to God, in my mind is not in Mosiah 3:19, but it is located in the first few chapters of Mosiah on the right hand page in the right column toward the top.  So, to find it I would simply flip through the first few chapters of the Book of Mosiah until I locate the highlights that I made on Mosiah 3:19.   This system served me well until we all started using electronic scriptures.  Now there are no pages or columns.  It is just one long column separated into chap…

No, I am not a vegan

Why I'm not a vegan (or a vegetarian for that matter).  After my previous post about the Word of Wisdom, I felt I should write an additional post covering this topic. 
First, the word "vegetarian" means nothing.  There are so many levels, tangents, and offshoots of vegetarianism that applying the label to yourself or anyone only causes confusion.   Some vegetarians eat dairy, some don't.  Some eat fish, some don't.  Some eat eggs, some don't.  Some are weekday vegetarians, and some only honor meatless Monday.  And the list goes on and on.  Labeling yourself as a vegetarian is simply a label that brings on a confusing discussion.  So, I don't use it.  
I'm not a vegan either.  You see, vegans typically fall into three categories: - They are in it for their own good health - They are doing it to be kind to animals, promote animal rights, avoid animal cruelty, etc.  - They are doing it do save the planet
The trouble with many vegans is that they tend to become…
