Mormon Pioneer Day

1847 Plus 162 Years

“On July 24, 1847, the pioneer company of our people came into this valley. An advance group had arrived a day or two earlier. Brigham Young arrived on Saturday. The next day, Sabbath services were held both in the morning and in the afternoon. There was no hall of any kind in which to meet. I suppose that in the blistering heat of that July Sunday they sat on the tongues of their wagons and leaned against the wheels while the Brethren spoke. The season was late, and they were faced with a gargantuan and immediate task if they were to grow seed for the next season. But President Young pleaded with them not to violate the Sabbath then or in the future.
The next morning they divided into groups to explore their surroundings.”

- Gordon B. Hinckley, Fifteenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “An Ensign to the Nations,” Ensign, Nov. 1989, p. 51
(23 June 1910 - 27 Jan 2008)

      From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 07/22/09, 7:40 PM - "MalWare Reported by Google on NNHSsite.":

My friend, Carol -

Google is reporting your Newsletter 2009 site as Malware. My FireWall is reporting the same. Two of my three browsers (Firefox and Chrome) are reporting the same. IE-7 is not. See link below for more information. I am using Win-XP.

I recommend that you ask your son to look into all this.

Forgive this if you are already aware.

As always, thanks for what you do!!

Please let me know.

- John London

   Thank you, John! I've been fuming about this since I myself was first blocked from seeing the site Monday night, but after standing on my head six weeks from Tuesday, and scanning my systems and finding them already squeaky clean, I just realized two things: one, not everyone is being blocked, and two, it's not our site per se which has problems, but the entire 00freehost server.

       (My #5 son) Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL) is as mystified as I am; his computer is not being blocked, but the rest of the computers in the house are.

   I'll ask           (my #6 son) Dale (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02 - of MA).  We may just have to wait a few days until 00freehost gets their act together.

   I wondered why I hadn't heard from more people about the problem, and why many more people kept sending me fresh content as though everything was fine and dandy!

    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 07/23/09, 4:18 PM - "Malware - This is what I got from Google":

Hi Carol

When I just now tried to open the site I was told by my computer that the site has "malware" on it and that it can contaminate your computer with viruses...have you heard about this?  I have been on the sacred soil for over two weeks and just got home last night...Here's  the message I got...

   Thanks, Jean! As you see if you read this carefully enough, the problem is not specific to us, but with other sites carried by the 00freehost server. The good news is that no "suspicious content" has been detected since July 21, so I'm hopeful that the block will be lifted soon.

From Martha Stewart Organizing Tip of the Day - 07/23/09 - "Six Things to Do Every Day":

1. Make the Bed
Tidiness begets tidiness. A crisply made bed makes the whole room seem more orderly, which makes it less likely that you'll let other things -- such as clothes and papers -- pile up around it.

2. Manage Clutter
Whenever you leave a room, take a quick look around for anything that isn't where it should be. Pick it up and put it where it belongs. Insist that everyone in the household do the same.

3. Sort the Mail
Take a few minutes to open, read, and sort mail as soon as you bring it inside. Keep a trash bin near your sorting area for junk mail. Drop other mail into one of four in-boxes: personal correspondence, bills, catalogs, and filing.

4. Clean as You Cook
Instead of filling the sink with pots and dishes, wash them or put them in the dishwasher as you prepare a meal.

5. Wipe Up Spills While They're Fresh
Whether it's tomato sauce on the cooktop or makeup on the bathroom counter, almost anything is faster and easier to remove if you attend to it immediately.

6. Sweep the Kitchen Floor
Every evening once you've finished washing up after dinner, sweep the floor. This will keep tough-to-clean dirt and grime from building up, which will make the weekly mopping much quicker.

1.   From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD":

Attached is the two-sided brochure.... It has an order form on it. All former CNC students (whether or not they got a degree from CNC) can get the $5 alumni discount if they order the book with this form. They will need to write on the order form "alumni discount" and put $24.95 in the blank beside $29.95. They will have to pay S&H also and (if in Virginia) 5% Sales Tax.

Attached also is an ad we ran in the Daily Press, which lists places where the book can be bought in the Tidewater area. Except for the CNU bookstore, there is no discount price for these copies. However, buyers can get signed copies at all of these places EXCEPT the CNU Bookstore, which did not want signed copies.  Signed means signed by all 3 authors: Chambers, Hubbard, and Wood.

   Contact Dr. Chambers at

   Thanks, Jane!

Come, Come, Ye Saints

"This hymn text was written by William Clayton, who was inspired by the existing hymn 'All Is Well' and his experiences traveling to Utah as one of the Mormon Pioneers. They, the early members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gathered from around the world and walked across the American plains to find a new home in the West where they could live their religion without persecution. They settled and colonized much of what is now the state of Utah and although the bitter persecution of the past has, for the most part, been replaced with understanding and respect, for members of the Church throughout the world the hymn 'Come, Come Ye Saints' continues to represent their heritage of faith and sacrifice."

Words by William Clayton, April 15, 1846
(1814 - 4 Dec 1879)

Music: English Folk Song

Come, come, ye Saints, no toil or labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
'Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this and joy your hearts will swell —
All is well! All is well!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
'Tis not so; all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we'll have this tale to tell —
All is well! All is well!

We'll find the place which God for us prepared,
Far away in the West.
Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid;
There the Saints will be blessed.
We'll make the air with music ring,
Shout praises to our God and King;
Above the rest these words we'll tell —
All is well! All is well!

And should we die before our journey's through,
Happy day! All is well!
We then are free from toil and sorrow, too;
With the just we shall dwell!
But if our lives are spared again
To see the Saints their rest obtain;
Oh, how we'll make this chorus swell —
All is well! All is well!
