Yesterday I picked my car up at the dealer. The car was parked inside the building on the first floor (2nd in the US I thing, so not ground floor, one above it). We paid and got a little introduction and then we watched as they basically shoved the car out of the window onto a ramp and like an elevator it went down to the ground. (You only get that if you buy new, with used cars you just pick them up on the parking place, haha!)

 First stop was the gas station (I paid 50€ for a full tank, I don't want to know how cheap it would be in the US). And then my Mum and I went on a little shopping trip to various stores, my navigation app said we drove 26km. I reversed parked at the street without problems, parked on the parking lots and went up the ramp from the parking garage (yay for hill start assist). The trickiest thing was getting onto our property. It is a very small gateway with buildings on both sides. I had to turn the parking sensors off because they went totally crazy. But it went well. 

Today my Mum is at work the whole day so no driving, but tomorrow we are going to the supermarket again and later to my relatives to show off my new car. I want to drive with my mother only at the beginning. She almost fell asleep, so I guess I drive okay. My Dad is so afraid and my Grandpa tries to tell you what to do all the time, even when my Mum drives, who has driving experience since she is 18 and no accidents...

First drive alone is planed for next Friday. I'm going to pick up my Mum from her sports class and then we go to Christmas party and later I drive home again. 

It is still such a surreal feeling. When we got home yesterday I started crying after I turned the car off. So weird when something you never thought could happen becomes a reality. 

His name is Scottie. (Yes, I'm one of those weird people who give their car a name.) Named after the cat of my driving instructor.

Congratulations. And don't let it bother you that your dad is scared and your grandpa tries to tell you what to do. That's a parent thing that will never change. I've been driving for 36 years and have never had an accident nor even gotten a ticket. My 83-year-old dad still tries to tell me how to drive. It comes from a place of love which makes it easier to accept.

Good luck with Scottie. You guys are going to have fun together, I'm sure.

      Oh, FFS, Gary - really?

      image.png.bad8105a35c051219044b6d2328d2939.png

      Even for Gary and his ilk, this is so mind-bogglingly stupid, childish and soaked in the stinking piss of conspiracy theory that it challenges belief.

      The fact that your life, and the lives of those around you, matter, is the entire fucking point to wearing a mask, you suspicious cretins.

      Man these morons want to think they're important. "We're a threat to the narrative and must be silenced", FFS. If they wanted to silence you it would have been done already, and no one would have known. 

      Is it wrong that I kind of hope they find themselves unable to post to Facebook because the 4G network is down?

      And what led John III to confess these attractions to Daniel recently?   John III is 30 years old. He's been in positions of trust with minor boys as an adult and had this obsession for most of his life. Why come out about it now -- was there a triggering event? 

      The Wartburg Watch discussed at length pedophiles who are aware of their attractions but do not physically act on them:  NOMAP = Non Offending Minor Attracted Person

      Is the Volunteer at John Ortberg’s Menlo Church a NOMAP (Non-Offending Minor Attracted Person) and What Does This Mean in the Long Run?

      Yes, it's possible that John III is a NOMAP, but without doing due diligence, alerting the church body, and interviewing parents and children with whom John III had close contact (including overnight trips away), there's no way to know. 

      Also, there was something in the tweet thread or elsewhere that the parents feared  John III might commit suicide if he were outed by Daniel, but the phrasing was ambiguous if the suicide might occur as a result of the humiliation of being outed or the prospect of the loss of companionship of minor boys. 

      I have heard of " MAPs " , and "NoMAPs"  , mentioned on a couple YouTube channels .  So if you want to go down that rabbit hole , here is a list of videos decrying this trend .

      That is a very sweet tribute from Josiah.

      Of all the married females in the Duggar universe I think Lauren is the one I would least like to see pregnant right now. To me she seems to have a more fragile personality than, say a Kendra, who would probably be happy and comfortable with having a very large family. I think Lauren would definitely benefit from more Anna Duggar and Priscilla Waller 2 or 2 + years type spacing.
