EDIT June 09, 2009: I originally put this page together as an experiment with Javascript. The “Age” column had the current age of the apostles calculated with a script and their birthdays. I’ve removed the script and their ages becuase I didn’t want to have excess code on my site. The Apostles have now changed with the passing of several of the Apostles, including President Gordon B. Hinckley but I’m leaving this page on my site as a snapshot of what I was doing a few years ago.

I’m only human!

I’ve been scrolling through my web stats for March and I was surprised to find that 2 people came to my site by doing a search for Gordon B. Hinckley’s birth day. For those of you who haven’t found that information on my site yet it’s located on my page dedicated to the current apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

One neat feature of this page is that it always shows the current age of the Apostles and updates automatically when they have a birthday! I was showing the page to Crystal and she noticed that Elder Wirthlin was only 33 years old! I’m sure he would like to be that young again, but alas, I entered his birthday as 1971 when it should have been 1917.

Sorry all, I’m only human!
