This Ironrite was manufactured in 1954!

Did your Mom or Grandmother use one of these Ironrites?
Most of all, you get to sit down while ironing!

Bob found it on for $75 and picked it up (with some difficulty - it weighs a ton) in Roy, Utah from the son of a deceased woman who used it for years. Shauna has always ironed sheets, pillowcases, napkins, etc. and was recently called to be the East Highland Stake Relief Society (google Relief Society), which means lots and lots of tablecloths! It works perfectly!

Gina and Jonathan stuck on a ski lift for three hours!

Celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary at Solitude near Salt Lake City, Gina and Jonathan decided to make one final run, but they ended up stuck on the lift for three hours due to a power outage. These pictures were on the front page of section B of Friday, December 24, 2010 "Deseret News." Jonathan is standing up on the lift next to Gina and Johnny's brother Paul. They are also pictured at the base of the life shortly after being lowered. Today, Friday, they are back on the slopes with their four kids and brother James (Maroon5) and other cousins and relatives. The snow in nearby Utah resorts this year is fabulous!
