Mormon Pioneer Day
1847 Plus 167 Years
“It is not enough to study or reenact the accomplishments of our pioneers. We need to identify the great, eternal principles they applied to achieve all they achieved for our benefit and then apply those principles to the challenges of our day. In that way we honor their pioneering efforts, and we also reaffirm our heritage and strengthen its capacity to bless our own posterity and those millions of our Heavenly Father's children who have yet to hear and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are all pioneers in doing so.”
Dallin H. Oaks,
Ensign, Nov. 1997, p.72

Mormon Pioneer Recipes
http://www.lds.org/ensign/1972/07/a-melting-pot-of-pioneer-recipes - Winnifred C. Jardine's Melting Pot of Pioneer Recipes - "Pioneer women who had to decide what few precious things to carry across the plains surely made one choice in common—their own individual collection of “receipts,” as recipes were then called. For them, these were reminders of a security left behind and a hope for the abundance of the future. In the interim, they simply did what they had to do to keep their families alive..." NOTE: Winnifred Cannon Jardine is the great granddaughter of Brigham Young.
From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/23/14:
An old man was tired from riding his bike, and decided to hitch hike. A guy in his red Corvette pulled up to give him a lift. When the old man brought out his bike that he had leaned up against a tree, the driver said, "I have no room for your bike in my car, but I'd like to help you in someway seeing you standing here in the hot sun."
After a few seconds of thought, the driver said, "I know what we can do. I have a rope behind my seat. I'll tie one end of it to the rear end of my car and the other end to the front your bike. You ride your bike, and I'll give you this whistle. If I go too fast for you, just blow your whistle and I'll slow down."
The old guy agreed to it. So off he went down the highway with the old man and his bike in tow.
A little ways down the rode, a young lady in a bright yellow corvette pulled up next to them. She gave the guy in the red Vette the High Sign, meaning, "You want a drag?"
Off they went down the highway, 100 plus MPH, the old man blowing his whistle like crazy. They zipped by a Highway Patrol cop sitting under a tree.
The cop knew he couldn't catch them, so he called ahead to his fellow cop down the rode to intercept. "Car number 2, this is car number 1."
"Go head number 1, what'cha got for me?"
"I got red and yellow Vettes come down your way doing hundred plus, can you intercept?"
"Ten-four, Is there anything else?"
"Yeah, you won't believe this, but there is an old guy riding a bicycle blowing his whistle trying to pass."

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
