Someone on the last thread noted that they updated the About section, and the unmarrieds are now above the marrieds. 

I noticed they didn't update any of the pictures besides the group family one and Steve and Teri's. The pics for the unmarrieds were all taken one kid ago. I know they have more recent pics of each of the families with their new babies. Some taken pretty recently. Why go to the trouble of updating that page and not updating those pictures?

My favorite adaptation of Emma is the 2009. I thought it was cast well overall and I liked how it was done in 4 parts so there wasn’t a lot left out because of time constraints. 

My biggest problem with the 1996 Emma is Gwenyth Paltrow. I just don’t like her Emma much. But I liked a lot of the supporting cast. I adore Alan Cumming as Mr Elton. He’s perfect. He’s so good at playing a smug little shit. 

I think I will enjoy this new Emma, but it won’t be my overall favorite. I predict it will be like Pride and Prejudice. The 1995 version will always be my all time favorite. However the Kiera Knightly version is just so gorgeous that I really enjoy it. I love the visuals and the music so much. I have a feeling that’s how this new Emma will be for me.

About the Maxwell's trip to Varalberg in Austria this summer, that province (state?) is 78% Roman Catholic, 8.4% Muslim and only 2.2 % Protestant.  That might give some of them the vapors being surrounded by all those ebil Catholics and Muslims.

This brightened my Monday morning.  Thank you.  ?

Update about the week with Anna and Christopher’s kids. Sarah SEVERELY overuses the word sweet. And I feel really badly for Reversal Anna and Mary. They have to realize that they are getting further and further away from a future with children right? They seem just aglow taking care of the kids, and they will likely never have their own. It’s very sad.

Mary has a mini Ted talk, as they call it in the about me section of the blog. This is proof of her love for the unborn 

It’s hard to take her serious when she has no life experience.

I just went to read their updated About section, and clicked on the link for their church. 

It's blocked by our server (I'm at work).

All churches are not blocked - I hit up the websites for the mega-churches when we were having that discussion a few weeks back. 

Wonder what it is about the Maxwell church that set off our filters? 

I find it interesting.

I hope no one in Austria wears contrasting buttons. Or tight dirndls.

I wonder if the Maxwells will vote for Trump in November since he obviously has a heart for the unborn ?

I’m finding this so interesting that they are coming to Europe! 
 

When they did their conferences, they were invited, rather than seeking locations. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong. I also remember a commenter (I think) saying that they wished the family would come and lead conferences in Australia and another said Europe. I really clearly remember Steve stating that they were praying for an opportunity to come up in Australia but that they didn’t think they would ever go to Europe.

 

Europe and America are chalk and cheese. Heck, European countries are so different to each other. I think this will be amazing for the “kids” yet such a culture shock. I just hope they are not going in blindfolded so to speak. I hope they actually take in some sights and visit places and do some stereotypical Austrian things. Austria is beautiful. I love their markets, the Christmas markets are wonderful. Go and have some true Austrian food (who am I kidding here?) 

of course I’m sure what we will here is how “lost” socialist Europeans are and I’m sure all they’ll see is the airport and the church.....

I would also guess - Some if you lovely Americans will be able to help with this - I would  have thought they would have to use connecting flights and change in London or Dublin possibly? I wonder if they would hang around to see those places....

Interesting that she uses emotional pleas as her reason against abortion. And the Holocaust, of course ? :5624797b0697e_headbash:

I also want to come clean and say it’s taken till now to realize this is still a vest themed thread title. :embarrassed: ?

They did do some sight seeing when they did their conferences in the U.S., so I assume  they would do the same in Europe.

That is the very antithesis of the spirit of TED talks. Unless they think TED stands for Theology, Evangelism, Dogma.

On their updated About section again - - Sarah, Anna & Mary "work" for their brother's businesses. They do not work for anyone in the general public. They do not go to work anywhere. They do what they are allowed within the confines of their homes and their fathers ego. 

Yet, their About sections talk of them working for "small businesses" and the like. 

Even the Maxwells know they suck - they can't even be honest about what their trapped at home daughter's without purpose do every day. They have to hide reality to convince people what they're doing is working. 

Does Jesus like liars?

I wouldn't put it past Steve to lie, but do we know they aren't legit working for their brother's businesses?  

I've worked for a lot of family businesses and it's not unheard of - even with super flexible "schedules" so they can split and go take care of a sibling's kids or whatever.

Anna is just another asshole using the Holocaust to argue against abortion.  I lasted about that long (Greta, a German Jew in 30s Germany) before I hit the pause button on that screed.

Anna is "Annie" - the Help Desk for Nathan's company.

Even if they are legitimately working for their brothers - it's not like they had to get an education, go out and interview and compete for a job. They were available, their brothers had needs & trained them - voila - employment & cheap help

It's deceiving not saying they are working for their brother's companies.

From East to Vest...they think they’re the best.

Good, Better, Vest...they’ll put your faith to the test.

Yes, that "Annie" thing bothered me as they made her sound like some assistant Nathan went out and hired.  Especially calling her Annie, while she is referred to as Anna throughout their personal blog.  And not using her last name.

Same with saying the sisters work for "small businesses".  While it's not a lie, it makes it sound like they went out and got hired somewhere due to that great education they got from Teri.  Maybe they're good at what they do for their brothers, maybe they're awful, but who would ever know for sure?  It would be more honest if they said the sisters work in the family businesses.

It would definitely look better if they were upfront about who exactly they were working for. Working for family businesses is entirely normal, no-one is going to judge them. It’s still experience of sorts, even if they didn’t go through the same sort of application process external/non-family applicants would have gone through.

I don't suppose I am allowed to educate the Maxwell's about the logical fallacy called reductio ad Hitlerum.  Yes, it really exists.  Reductio ad Hitlerum is an ad hominem that is meant to derail any conversation in favour of the desired (poorly argued) point by using an extreme example of evil/suffering/etc.

Sorry.  These are clear attempts to manipulate the truth; aka lying.

      The Berries were born in Highland Park Hospital. We went to the 4th of July Parade every year until we moved here. I’ve been crying all day. This is horrible. We are just waiting for a list of victims to make sure none of our old friends from those days were hurt. I HATE this.

      Already after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I was already NOT feeling 4th of July and felt it was ridiculous to celebrate. Now a mass shooting at a parade in a town nearby. Multiple fatalities. Everyone has to shelter in place in their homes, can't go outside, because shooter is still on the loose. Nearby towns canceling their celebrations due to public safety concerns. Wow guys, how free we are! What a great country we live in! Aren't you grateful for all this freedom?! /s

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.

      With the fall of Roe v. Wade, now would be a great time to start taxing religious institutions so we can increase funding for women's and children's health and education services.  Males 18-25 still have to register for Selective Service; how about adding a DNA database to that requirement to help track down impregnators and hold them responsible for their part?
