See Church History through old Life Magazine photos

You may have heard that Google has added photos that were previously published by Life magazine. The announcement was as follows:

Only a very small percentage of these images have ever been published. The rest have been sitting in dusty archives in the form of negatives, slides, glass plates, etchings, and prints. We’re digitizing them so that everyone can easily experience these fascinating moments in time. Today about 20 percent of the collection is online; during the next few months, we will be adding the entire LIFE archive — about 10 million photos.

I hadn’t thought about this in a “church” sense at all, until I saw a post on the LDS Tech web site. The person had search for Mormon and come up with some interesting pictures. I then also search for Salt Lake City, latter-day, and joseph smith and found some other interesting images.

A friend of a friend has a web site that is supposed to help with budgeting. The site has quotes and other information about personal and family finances, and then uses CalendarBudget to help with budgeting.

Here is the basic description:

Very timely for the current (and worsening) global financial crisis, MormonBudget is a collection of resources with an LDS perspective on managing personal and family finances. It features a detailed commentary on what the Book of Mormon teaches about money management and has a unique online budgeting tool called LDS Money Manager which helps you plan to live within your means and be prepared for you and your family’s future.
