July 11th & today's question

Happy Birthday!

It is my (Mike's) birthday today but . . . we also have a new birthday to celebrate in our family on this day! Hannah! Born about 8:30 this morning, 8 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long! This is one grandchild's birthday I think I can remember!

We had dress rehearsal last night and it went really well! We are ready to go for tonights' opening. The afternoon rehearsal was cancelled for today and we are enjoying the time off!

Last night was also my first effort at teaching the Highland Fling. And it seemed to go pretty well . . . considering! But I was pretty well exhausted by the time it was over. Our little area of the preshow alternates between a puppet show (thus the socks we collected) and teaching the Highland Fling (thank heaven I get a break!).
Tonight we will have a real audience and it should be lots of fun. But we have been warned that there will be 'detracters' there tonight who will stand just outside the gate and hand out contrary literature. But we will kind of ignore them and let them do there thing. They have no power unless we engage them.

Tonight should be interesting.
Today's question: What direction does the Nauvoo Temple face? What direction does the Salt Lake Temple face?

Happy Birthdays!

The answer to the question is:

Both temples face out (it's too difficult to build a building that faces in).

Also, the statue of Moroni on the Nauvoo Temple faces West, while the statue on the Salt Lake Temple (like almost all temples) faces east.
