About us

Robert is a computer 'geek' and I say that in the most affectionate way possible! He keeps our home network up and running. Right now he works for Convergys in Orem in their technical support department for Netapp. Rob has the most common sense out of anyone I've ever met. He also is one of the most 'creative' people I have EVER known. Within minutes of getting a 'new toy' he's got it taken apart figuring out how to 'maximize' it's potential.

Heather is a 'die hard' animal lover. Rob is VERY tolerant of her zoo. Right now she has 6 cats, 2 dogs, 5 birds, 1 RES Turtle, 1 Betta Fish, 1 Tank of guppies (see The Thompson Zoo) for more about their daily adventures. Rob is very understanding, and coming from a background of not really an animal lover other than birds, he's quite taken with them :) Heather works full time for her father at Camelot Pet Resort, Spa & Health Center in Bountiful, she is the Manager and Veterinary Technician. Heather is also an Independant Representative for several direct sales companies, she offers Gourmet Food, Scrapbooking, Pet Supplies, Candles and Natural Home Care products.

Briggs & Sims Family Website

This is for the "Ronald & Gilda Sims & David & LaVerne Briggs Families, so if you are one of our friends...ignore :)

Dear Family;

We have been busily working on a family website for both the Briggs (David & LaVerne) and Sims (Ronald & Gilda). We have finally got it up and running. This website currently has a recipe database that has the "Sims Family Cookbook" that Jennifer Sims put together many years ago (the one you have in a 3 ring binder) that you can search as well as a couple of other recipe databases that have TON of recipes in them. On the recipe site if you select "Ingredient Contains" you can enter multiple ingredients separated by a comma. So if you are in the mood for something with cheddar and broccoli just enter "broccoli,cheddar cheese" in the search field and you will get the recipes containing those ingredients from the cookbook selected. Then there is the Blogs Section this is a current listing of all the blogs that I (Heather Sims Thompson) currently have listed for the families, just select the person who's blog you would like to see. If the name is not listed that means I have no blogs for that family. If you have a blog and would like it to included, please send me the link :)

This is a COMPLETELY PRIVATE forum, you have to register with a password to view anything on it, and we will moderate the users, so the content and information stays within the family. To register on the upper right hand side where it says login, then under the username click on register. Then fill in the spots that it asks. This is an interactive place where we can 'chit chat' share ideas, recipes, events, family news, prayer requests and anything else you would like to share. There will be a place for an 'address' book so we will have everyones addresses, birthdays and contact information in one centralized location.
For now when you are in the forums if you click on "User control panel" and then "Profile" you can enter your websites, IM adresses, Birthday, etc.

There is a recipes section on the forum for recipes you would like to add, right now you cannot add them directly but put your recipe in a post on the forums and I will get them entered.

We are going to work on a genealogy page with genealogies of our families as well.

Please let us know of any other ideas you may have to make things better. We would love to have everyone join us on the forums, and would appreciate everyones input on the website.

Thank-you so much

Heather & Robert Thompson

RIP Sweet Viggo

I am posting this as there are several who read this blog who have worked at Camelot Pet Resort, and probably knew him:
Yesterday my sisters dog, Viggo, a miniature schnauzer passed away suddenly. My dad let the dogs outside before he went to an orientation at school (he teaches vet tech students), and my mom went to let the dogs in about 20 minutes later and all the dogs but Viggo came inside, my sister was talking about taking Viggo to work with her for her trainee to learn how to groom schnauzers so my mom thought that is where he was so didn't think anything of it, so when my dad got home they called my sister and she had not taken him, so they went to go find him, and found him dead outside. He had an autopsy performed today, and his heart basically ruptured, it had a hole in it. He wasn't showing any signs of having any problems, was always a very active sweet boy, he was our Little Doggie Daycare Mascot at work, so I got to seem him 4-5 days a week, as he came to work with my dad, as well as I lived with my sister for the 1st year of Viggo's life. So please keep her in your thoughts. He was only 5 & 1/2 years old.
