I can't seem to make the link live, so I guess that is something that I will have to learn how to do. I thought I did it in another post the other day, but I must have missed something.

I am not sure if there is a transcript, but I think there will be. At least I read one from September 11, 2007 regarding terrorists casing American schools to learn the disaster preparedness response so that they can kill more people when the parents show up to get their children after an attack on a school. It went on to talk about how they would target the heartland, where no one expects it and feels safe, because the emergency response would take longer. Really scary stuff.
1. I graduated from a class of 10, way back in 1985.
2. My absolute passion in a hobby is scrapbooking, which there is never enough time for in my book (but I am going for 2 days this weekend).
3. I am an unorganized, organization fanatic (in other words, I want to be uber-organized and try everything, but don't have the persistance to keep following the system).
4. I love to travel.
5. I love to snow-ski in Steamboat Springs, but haven't been back to ski since 1996 (pre-kids).
6. I have never bought a brand new piece of furniture, but I have made a cedar chest and walnut desk (way back in high school shop class).
7. I have never spent $100 on a pair of shoes (or $50 for that matter).
8. We designed our own house and had it built.
Hope this helps you to know me a little better. Not sure who I will tag, or how many people, but I am sure someone will let me know what I am supposed to do.
http://thepioneerwoman.com/2007/10/after_the_rain.html I planned to send this one last night, but it got too late. Here it is.
You can just faintly see the second rainbow to the left of the main one. If you go to the peak of the barn, it begins there. Hope you like it. My hubby took this picture earlier this summer. I thought I had included this tidbit, but it got deleted. That should clarify this next comment. I am not the Pioneer Woman, and neither is my husband.
I cut up several pieces of chuck steak (really it was small pieces of what would have been chuck roast and threw it in the crockpot with with a chopped green pepper and chopped onion, plus a little water and 3 teaspoons of curry powder. I cooked it on high for about 3.5 hours and when I returned from the skincare party my friend hosted that afternoon, I made rice and Ciabbatta rolls that I had in the freezer.
Hubby loved it (yeah - good birthday meal!)! Kids loved it (yeah - that means I can make it again!). I loved it (yeah- means I will make it again....that just doesn't happen if I don't like it, dontcha' know?). I'll even make it when you visit, if you want me to........
BTW, even FIL loved it. He came out to give the kids an entire set of (almost new) Encyclopedia Britannicas that the library was getting rid of. They are now occupying the entire bottom shelf of one of our large bookshelves. Hopefully they will get more use here, than they did at the library.

This summer we had an opportunity to take a field trip to the Wells Blue Bunny factory (well kind of). Due to OSHA regulations we didn't get to go the actual factory, but they have a visitor center where they set up a working model of what goes on in the factory, as well as historical items, etc. related the company, which is still family owned since 1913. When I find the statistics about the amount of milk they use and how much ice cream they produce, I will add it to this.
I hope you enjoy my first attempt at putting a slideshow into my blog. If you have any questions about it, I plan to write a post about it later (not tonight, it's already late enough!!!), but I would happy to answer any questions. (Best of all, it is completely free, you just have to put up with a few ads.)
