Two shutouts in a row… that’s good stuff. BYU 44 WYO 0 (<---zero) . (Last time they had two consecutive shutouts the scores were... ***drum roll*** ...59-0 and 44-0.) I say let's make it three in a row, just for symmetry's sake. Sorry to afflict you with football posts, but hey, 'tis the season. 'Tis also the season for the general RS broadcast. Elder Uchtdorf was beyond fabulous. My favorite quote:
“Don’t let fear of failure discourage you. Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you—whether that voice comes from the outside or the inside.”
Still mixing James’s Christmas tracks–enjoying myself immensely. They’ll be up in a week or so.

Ah, fall…

My BYU Cougars are now 3-0 after shellacking UCLA 59-0 (yes you read that correctly) on Saturday, in one of the most amazing games I’ve ever watched. You know, I’m really a non-violent person… and football is certainly only semi-controlled violence from beginning to end. Why do I love this game?

A couple weeks ago I had a lovely visit from James and Francesca Loynes, from Southport, UK. We spent two and a half days together, and I only reluctantly agreed to let them leave. It wasn’t really a proper visit… James and I worked most of the time, though Fran indulged herself in the dangerous sport of shopping. But we didn’t see Pike’s Peak or the Garden of the Gods, or anything. Next time!

Unlike the week Heather Prusse spent with me, we had no bulldozers or backhoes to contend with. Everything was very quiet–and we recorded Christmas music to our hearts’ content… a few old things, a few new ones… and oh my, what a voice! I’m mixing tracks over the next couple of weeks, and I’ll get them posted sometime around (hopefully!) the first week of October. We’ll put them on CD as well, so my mother can have the 50 copies she wants… 😉

In the meantime… Wyoming is up next on the football schedule. Poor dears.
