Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
In all these years we've only managed to observe this here twice before (2006 and 2008), so I really don't want to miss it again this year.
I don't want to spoil the surprise of these videos by describing them. Trust me, you'll want to see them:

From My Friend, Susan, of NC
cannot achieve lasting happiness by pursuing the wrong things. Someone
once said, 'You can never get enough of what you don’t need, because
what you don’t need won’t satisfy you.' ”
Dallin H. Oaks,
Thanks so much, Susan!

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/22/15:
|A woman was waiting in the
checkout line at a shopping center. Her arms were laden with a mop and
broom and other cleaning supplies. By her hard glances and deep sighs,
it was obvious she was in hurry and not a happy camper about the
slowness of the line.
When the cashier called for a price check on a box of soap, the woman remarked indignantly, "Well, I'll be lucky to get out of here and home before Christmas!"
"Don't worry, ma'am," replied the clerk. "With a good tail wind and that brand new broom you have there, you'll be home in no time."
