    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    I've been trying to keep up with the videos, but had to turn them off when I saw the paramedics loading her onto the ambulance to the airport to go home. I second @Escadora and wish that I didn't watch this most recent video; my heart feels heavy.

    And I think Taco Bell is more in the Tex-Mex style?

    Dillards 78: Taste the Rainbow

    As a little one, my daughter thought her greatest achievement was being able to burp on command. She still thinks it's great at the age of 36. She's the one who taught her brothers how to do it. She can burp the alphabet in English and Spanish. I will say she was easier to housebreak than her brothers...but all that shit about girls being "clean and neat"...oh that's a FUCK NO for this one. She's a walking, talking disaster area. She still is not "domestic" (she comes by that honestly), doesn't cook, doesn't give a shit. Only difference is she showered more regularly than her brothers. Good thing she's cute! All three of mine are "unique" individuals, cursed with many of my personality traits.

    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    I've been watching all the live updates, because I'm clearly a massive hypocrite who will absolutely tell other people that it's healthy and worth it to walk away and then just anxiously check in all the time herself. I feel like I refresh youtube every so often with the expectation or hope that I've fever-dreamt this whole situation, and that I'll click on the channel and only find the homeschool videos and such. I don't know why I care so much. I wish I didn't. But, for anybody who's interested in being updated but doesn't want to watch the videos: Andrea's on her way home now with Tom. They should arrive in a few hours. The baby was a little boy, they've called him Cyrus Grant Mills. The children down to Eden know what's going on and those younger than her have been told but don't quite understand. Really, it's just a matter of time. I hope that they make good pace, and that Andrea can hold on for long enough to make it back to her home and her family and friends (who have, as predicted, rallied around the children and the house, and have made preparations to ensure Andrea's comfort and as much ease as possible). @16strong is right, Andrea is well loved, and will be fondly remembered by a lot of people who will also rally around her husband and children. They're going to be okay. This is awful, but they're going to be okay eventually. What a comfort it must be to Tom and their children to believe that this is not the end. My heart, yet again, goes out to them.

    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    Tom has been live streaming a lot in the last few hours. They are now on a plane en route to home. At first I was a bit horrified at her being filmed in the state she is in but upon reflection I do think it will bring her kids some peace in the coming days/months/years to have gotten to 'experience' some of these final moments with their mom even though they are so far away. In seeing the state Andrea is in and that her meds are only keeping her pain free for about 15 minutes at a time I do not believe she will have much more time left. I hope she can make it home and have enough time to get her goodbyes in with her kids and other loved ones.

    Mother of girl dragons here. When Cloudlet #2 was in elementary school, she and her friend came up with a lovely game called “so you think you can burp”. And no, they do not come litter box trained.

    Gwen Shamblin 8: Not Smart Enough to Think

    Watching the webcast of yesterday's sabbath assembly was the usual infomercial for "this place" and"Gwen's message". Had a lot of fun getting grossed out by David Martin's fashion choice of car salesman plaid jacket, enormous turned up and over, shirt cuffs, loose pale blue pants with tight ankles, and no socks. Poor Michael was brought in stealthily, once again all in black, hair higher than ever. Audience asked to rise for his performance. Such are the perks of royalty. Gagggg.. Now weasely David Martin can't wait to roll right into some other awful droning piece. The constant applause for grown men writhing on stage in stupid outfits is not something any normal person can get used to experiencing in a "church". These so-called leaders are unbelievable narcissists. The powerful message of the day, to quote David Martin was a WeighDown video. The title was Born Again Part 1. Really really awful. I amused my self laughing at Gwen being filmed lecturing in a red and white checked Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm dress held up with red ribbons. Ludicrous! But not as crazy as the summary of the film, Avatar, complete with many long scenes. I wonder if she paid for the right to show the film, probably not. Oh heavens. This went on for an hour. Timeless message, cries out D؛avid Martin. Errrrr, really old one. Then the youth group came on stage and sang while waving V for Victory. Then everyone held hands, and I was hoping they would stop soon. But no, they starting acting the song out. Awful awful awful. Applause. Some doofus came out and said Gwen's message was really powerful. No message like Gwen's on this planet right now. Oh boy. Where is the great teacher, I wonder? Is she off somewhere canoodling with Joe? The Eagle Room? Kent says you can go there if you are "convicted"!?!!? David Martin begging for everyone to get those testimonials in... It's the right thing to do. Gwen and the leaders need to see them. You are officially dis-missed!

    Mills family from youtube

    To help anyone who's reading this in the future, there's a new thread that was started after the Mills family announced that Andrea has cancer: I don't really know much about the Mills family, but I'm really sorry to hear all this. I hope she and her family get a chance to say goodbye.

    I have an extremely unusual last name. Pretty much if there is someone with the name or a variant there is a good chance we are related. I have a ‘cousin’ I met through Facebook. We had a FB friend in common and she noticed my last name. She asked if I knew. A(insert last name here) or a H(insert slightly different spelling of last name here) Yea I knew them seeing as one was my uncle and one was my dad! She had heard family stories about my dad, his brothers and my grandmother growing up. She is kinda sorta related by marriage and a stepmom. We just call each other cousin. My dad died before all this happened, but if had know of her he would have called family. My husband has a rather plain standard kind of boring last name. No way I would ever change my name to it. I was already a mom when I married so my kid has my last name and she wants to keep it. Oh and one more thing. The FB friend we have in common it turns out she is related through adoption and we met when we belonged to the same congregation. Totally out of nowhere. I just call her cousin as well.

    Andrea Mills of YouTube infamy has cancer

    Two things I've noted, both positive: 1. Tom has fully accepted Andrea's diagnosis, and knows that nothing more can be done. Not everyone in his (horrific) position is able to do this. 2. Andrea has an absolute gift for gathering people together: her friends, her family, her youtube channel. She will leave a legacy behind her of many amazing, caring people that would do anything for the family. Tom could have shut down and closed himself off, but he is choosing to tap into the community and the love that his wife built. Reaching out, staying engaged, and celebrating Andrea's legacy will help him survive. I am shocked and horrified that so many little ones will be losing a mother, and so many loved ones a wife, friend, etc. I've been thinking of Tom and the kids all day.

    Well, I'm from the half that enjoys the videos. I'm in a different area (west coast), so I'm enjoying your regional landscape. The stone bridges are so nice, and the biking/walking paths are such a great feature in your community. I treated myself to a black lager today in your honor. Salud and happy riding!

    JRod 108: Selling the Grifted House

    Fundie is a hell drug. I’m in my early thirties and six years out from the thick of it. I honestly can’t think about the age of the earth. The idea of millions of years is so foreign after twenty something years of six days. It doesn’t quite compute right. Mr. Kittens called me out on it and all I could say is that my upbringing did a number on me in a lot of ways, and this is one of them. The best I can do without my brain exploding from the cognitive dissonance is that Young Earth/Old Earth has nothing to do with Jesus and His message. If I struggle with that sort of thing, have a fairly solid education (albeit completely parochial) including a triple major I earned living away from my family, and now live a secular life, no wonder Tim opted to double down.

    Oh yea, definitely some of them are horrible. The ones my grandkids watch, are very wholesome, I can see why it appeals to them. They are like big overgrown kids doing silly things like taping hundreds of copies of selfies in a friend’s house. The one guy also builds huge forts, and has giant LEGO contests, and basically runs amok in his Mc Mansion when he’s not doing Minecraft how to videos 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Rod house pictures

    Years ago I was walking down the sidewalk and came across two elderly ladies bent over with laughter. So I looked to see what they were laughing at and on about the 4th floor of a apt. Block there was this guy in his living room, wearing a black cowboy hat and nothing else, standing on a chair watering a fern. those two ladies were really cracking up. It’s good to see people having fun.

    Probably half the planet is saying oh no GoPro created a monster when it comes to me.... (And the main reason there isn't a similar video of yesterday's trip is that I was 5 miles in when I remembered that I had left my GoPro at home).
  24. OMG. I mean... I get you. I love watching a good trainwreck as much as anyone. Bring the Popcorn! But at the same time like: UGH! These two together would be the most annoying, snooty, self-righteous, insufferable pair.

    Cam n Beccy Mosser: Christ-honoring Criminal Charges

    It was A Level results day last Thursday, where 17/18 year olds find out where they’re going to university. There has been a big drop in the number of people doing English A Level, as it’s seen as not as valuable as STEM subjects. And yeah, STEM is important, but they’re not for everyone. Loads of jobs don’t require a specific degree. Personally I found maths and science difficult, my brain just does not work that way. I’m more of a languages person.
  26. Oh for sure. I have no idea if it will do a comeback, but it could. I don't think it is an ugly name in itself, but if you ask French-speakers, they'll tell you it is considered ''old''. Whereas I have seen some young woman bearing the name in the English-speaking world.
