Important stuff, silly stuff, boring stuff... it's all stuff about my life.

July 24, 1847
The day that Breed'em Young Brigham Young said "This is the place..." while looking down into the Salt Lake valley.
Today is a state holiday in Utah. I have fond memories of parades and dressing up like pioneers while I was growing up in my tiny town in central Utah.
Now-a-days I call today "pie 'n beer" day! More fitting I think...
But still I have to respect my forefathers who were pioneers. I guess if you look at one meaning of the word pioneer, I could be one too: "A person or group that originates or helps open up a new line of thought or activity..."
Maybe I should say: "This is the place... where Jim will take a stand" or "...where Jim will not be moved or swayed, where he will stay and grow stronger".
At least I'll be thinking of my ancestors and lifting a cold one to them.
Hhmmmm... and some pie too :-)
