A Big Week For Emily

Yes, I know. I failed to write on Friday again! I'm working on it, I really am.

Emily had a big week...actually a huge week. She graduated from high school on Wednesday. She got a new job as a receptionist for the same place where her mom works. And today she had her first class at college. She handled almost all of the inevitable bureaucracy herself
. It is the start of a phase in her life.

Iowa Straw Poll

Ok, I know I said that I would write something every Friday but I am still having some trouble getting motivated.

On the Iowa Straw Poll that was held today, Romney won. This was not really a surprise I guess, but second and third place were - Huckabee second and Brownback third. I like Romney but I don't know anything about these other two.

It is interesting that Ron Paul finished higher than any of the "front runners" (other than Romney of course). Now, I understand that McCain, Giuliani and Fred 'not a candidate' Thompson all skipped the event but I really expected that they would have a better showing. Perhaps the media is wrong about the real contenders for the Republican nomination? Nah, this is just an insignificant straw poll...right?

New Layout

I have update my blog to the new blogger tools. As you can see I have a new template. I will be adding in the links and other side-bar items over the next couple of days.

...just pathetic. I have lass than a dozen posts on this blog this year. That is just sad. It is was just a couple of years ago that I was posting several times a week. I have tried a couple of times over the last year to get motivated to start writing again but it really has not worked. What I plan on doing now to get back into the writing habit is to just do it were. I am going to try and write every Friday no matter what.

Hopefully this is just the start.
