You know the story of the Mormon trek westwards ? And them stopping in the Salt lake Valley in Utah ? Brigham Young, who was sick, looked out of the covered wagon and proclaimed "this is the place". So that's where they set up their colony. I THINK 8O :D they were on their way more west and therefor Oregon; when the caravan stopped, and he looked out of the wagon he said "This is the place ?????", his followers misunderstood and the rest is history :lol: :lol: :D
Greetings from almost Zion. HN.

Well, Luckily for my relatives they did not make it to Oregon. They sure would miss their occasional Alcholic Beverage :P
Of course there would be one benefit, polygamy!... I am only joking, I do not want to offend any of our Mormon members.
On a truthful note... the girl Mormons I grew up with, sure were cute ;)

Allies, held armed German Military Police units as long as untill the end of 1946... I have a picture of 2 German MP in a street a british tank is crossing and ofcourse the brits are most surprised!!! They were ofcourse released of swastika and eagles and all insignia of the Nazi ideology. I will try to post more on this issue when I get that magazine in my hands again...
