What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

More Zoo Pictures with Grand Kids and Lizzy


We had a great time at the zoo.  We chased Pokemon, and we looked at animals, and played on the train, playground and merry-go-round.  The mister were perhaps the most popular thing as the day was plenty hot.  That evening we took dinner at Liberty Park where we chased more Pokemon.  We ate Pasta from Noodles and Company.  The food was delicious.

Health As I See It: When You Dump Used Oil We All Get Soaked

The idea behind this pamphlet is that if you dump your oil in the gutter (which flows to the ocean eventually) then you are making it so everyone has to play in your used oil.  It suggest using a recycle station as an alternative.  By recycling used oil and oil filters (which can contain 45 percent oil by weight) we can protect the environment and prevent water pollutions, public health situations and preserve natural resources.  Of course if you have your oil changed at a shop, this does not apply.


This is a sealable bag for you used oil filter.

Idaho falls Saturday July 23, Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls

Our vacation plans changed, because Grandpa Scoresby was sick and in the hospital, so we didn't think it wise to travel too far away.  The day included several visits to the hospital as they were treating him for kidney issues.  So we did a day in Idaho Falls instead.  In Iona there was a Pioneer Day Celebration, but we just Pokemoned at the park and Annie, Caleb and Tony threw the Frisbee.
We did go to the falls for picnic.  We actually found a table above the falls.  It was a bit crowded closer to the falls with art booths set up along the river.
We afterwards went to the Idaho Museum in Idaho falls.  They had an exhibit of the Revolutionary War.  This included The French and Indian War, and the War of 1812 as well as Shays Rebellion.  They didn't allow picture taking in the  exhibit, so I don't have any pictures, but I have some of Tony on the hobby horse in the children's play area.  Caleb also took a turn on the horse.  They gave everyone a card with a description of an individual.  You could find additional information in the museum.

Spud Was Waiting to Great Us

Spud was being so affectionate it was hard to get a good shot
Look who wanted some affection when we came home.  Spud wanted in the house, and then he took turns crawling up on Tony and I.  He can be such a good cat.  He was in good hands while we were gone because Miranda stayed home with him.

Trip Home from Idaho: Fort Hall and Twin Falls

Pow Wow Grounds

We started a ride home early, and included an early visit to Grandpa to say goodbye.  He has been in the hospital.  We took a side trip to Fort Hall, where we priced beaded moccasins ($150-$700) and some art work, which was similarly priced; so we didn't get anything.  However I took some pictures inside the Hotel, and one at the trading post.
 
Below are a couple pictures of the temple.  I tried to drive so we could see the river from the north side.  A big mistake because the roads were not made for a van.  After gong a block, it was time to back out.  Sheri and Tony got out to guide my driving, but going backwards was difficult all the same.  Sheri and tony claim we almost tipped the van, but I wasn't that worried.  However Tony does say one wheel was off the ground.
Twin Falls Temple

Finally a couple pictures from the bridge which didn't turn out very well.  We were on the wrong side to catch a view of the river.  Sheri drove most of the way home.  I kept nodding off and didn't trust myself so gave the wheel to Sheri who drives faster anyway.  We were to Annie's house by 8:15.
