    Definitely not the mini ones. I had heard that only the first couple of Utah temples had one.

    Right, but with the St. G and SLC temples getting ready to close for several years, HwbtpbofapthworeJCtgamahLoG is probably looking for some temporary replacement digs.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.

    He did provide a link, so, I think that's on you.

    I clicked on it. Do I really need to listen to the whole JRH address to get it?

    Not really. In fact, you don't even need to listen, if you can read. But if you can't read, you'll only need to listen to 21 seconds of it. (Not telling which 21 seconds--that would be lame).

    I tried reading it, but it was more of a quick scan. I didn't get the witticism either.

    Haha. Can't believe this one is still making the rounds.

    I've got a second witness to this story. A fellow ward member - and a good friend - worked security at the temple on the night shift. Every night he had to make "the rounds" on the grounds and inside the temple. On a scout trip around the fire he told me that he got to check "the upper chamber" every night. He said late one night the Temple President showed up with a husband and wife and asked that he not enter the temple until he was done for the night. They were in the temple for about ninety minutes - and he didn't go in afterwards because he didn't "think" he should. I asked him a lot of questions - and he was a serious as a heart attack when he told me this story.

    No idea. But I heard Washington DC has one.
