ON THIS DAY

On this date in 1830, Joseph Smith organized the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, aka the Mormons. Apparently, up until that point they weren't very organized.

In 1868, Brigham Young married his 27th and final wife. Most guys occasionally bring home flowers for their wife.
  • After all, he didn't want to overdo it. I can't imagine trying to keep 27 wedding anniversaries straight. 
  • Brigham always brought home an anniversary gift, just in case. 
  • Can you imagine? 27 different people telling you that you're wrong at the same time? 
  • She had it tough. She was in charge of remembering wedding anniversaries. 
  • He finally had enough for three baseball teams. 
  • He went down in history as the King of Larry Kings. 
  • He was this close to officially changing his name to, "Uh, Bring 'em older." 

In 1931, the first Hostess "Twinkie" went on sale. I believe that someone finally ate that one just the other day. Yes, never had so many preservatives tasted so good. Here's a few Twinkie tidbits:
  • I believe it's still alive. 
  • It's a small cake-light dessert that contains all the things you probably shouldn't eat in one small package. 
  • Each Twinkie contains 145 calories. 
  • Five hundred million are produced every year. 
  • The original filling was banana. 
  • They're baked for ten minutes. 
  • The fried Twinkie is quite popular at fairs across America. 
C.A. Swanson & Sons introduced the first TV dinner in 1954. It consisted of roast turkey with stuffing and gravy, sweet potatoes and peas in an aluminum tray and sold for 98 cents. Swanson stopped calling them TV dinners in 1962.

Post-It Notes were introduced in 1980.
