    It is a beautiful building, I am glad they are spending the money to safeguard it.

    So do the stripling warriors who protect it get a four year vacation or do they get assigned to other places?

    Since sister missionaries will continue to serve there so i'd guess they'll continue and maybe even double up shifts as stripling firefighters.

    Will they be closing down Temple Square during the renovation? I need to know if I need to eliminate it from the potential places for Pokemon Go community days.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Aren't you on "don't allow on the grounds" list already?
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The Qualtrics guy was on the front row last night and it got me thinking, maybe he paid his tithing and the church was suddenly flush with cash and this temple square renovation took priority. Can you imagine what the open house is going to be like.

    There are going to be a bunch of girls that have been dreaming about being sealed in the Salt Lake Temple...that are going to be crushed. 4 years is a long time.

    Ha, that is funny, but very true.

    That is where my wife and I were sealed, but it was also her temple district, so we were supposed to be there.

    The Provo City Center temple is going to be one busy place on a Saturday. Maybe Rome will turn into that place where girls will dream of being sealed and they can burn through a little more of Daddy's money.

    With all the temples these days maybe this will start the trend of destination sealings for couples.

    I dress in a full Pikachu costume on community days, so they will have no clue it is me. It is frankly quite hot in the summer.

    since I know this is the follow-up question, it is regular Pikachu, not shiny Pikachu.

    It is quite difficult catching Pokemon in this costume.

    I call BS. Those aren't the Chinese chars for TCOJCOLDS, so it can't be funk.

    How else can you get a picture of a Pikachu costume other than personally having someone take it. It isn't like you could google image search "Inflatable Pikachu Costume" and acquire a picture from the internet to post.
