Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

Happy Mother’s Day! It was a gorgeous day here in central Iowa! I did business work all morning, but then took off at 3:00pm, went out with my family to a restaurant we all love, and then did some gardening; tomatoes, turnips, watermelon, peppers, pumpkins, sunflowers and sweet corn this year…plus a few pretty assorted annuals!

Don’t Expect Privacy At The Iowa Caucuses

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

I am happy to live in Iowa. I’ve enjoyed getting to see the presidential hopefuls in the state for the past 1+ years. I always vote during presidential elections, but I’ve never yet declared a party; I really don’t want to be listed in who knows how many places under such a label.
