A Super-hero or a Mormon?


On the CBS-TV Supergirl TV series on March 28, 2016 (Titled "World's Finest," episode No. 18), it featured a cross over episode with the Flash, who is on the CW Network (kind of historic for 2 different networks to cross over characters).
Anyway, near the end one of the show's regulars -- Calista Flockhart as "Cat Grant" guesses correctly that Barry Allen, who she met, is also the Flash, because she said: 

"He was so unfailingly charming and nice, he had to be either a super-hero or a Mormon.

 At least one funny moment in an otherwise disappointing story.
AND, another Mormon reference to add to the list of little such comments made in TV shows and movies over the years ....

The MIA Maids name origin

I'm in Sacrament meeting and all of a sudden, an organization name I've heard about for decades catches my interest ....


"Mia Maid," a young women's program for ages 14 and 15.

Could this have reference to the old Mutual Improvement Association name?
Turns out it does:

"The name Mia Maid refers historically to the Mutual Improvement Association, which adopted the emblem of the rose as a symbol of love, faith, and purity. Mia Maids today learn about love, faith, and purity as they strengthen their testimony and accept and act upon the Young Women values," according to  LDS.org
