I hate having a bunch of short posts, but I've been super busy and haven't had time to write my usual 10 page dissertations. I really do want to complete my goal of a post a day in November.
I encourage you all to vote today! I've got the fun of deciding between Conrad Burns and Jon Tester for Senator. I'm mostly republican, although I've been extremely ashamed of our country leaders and their handling of foreign affairs. If I vote for Tester, that will leave Montana with a mostly republican population and a democrat as governor, and two democratic senators. Hmmmm. Yet I don't like Burns anymore either. What to do, what to do. I predict that Tester will win, no matter how I vote. The best news of all is that we no longer have to endure the stupid smear campaigns of all our politicians. I just want the regular commercials back, thank you!
On a better note, last night I went through photos of our trip to Hawaii that we were lucky lucky lucky to be able to go on in January of this year with our kids. It was business related, but we added an extra week onto the business trip and enjoyed ourselves immensely. I had never been to the beach before that time.
The photo below is the first and only sandcastle I've ever made. I made it with my daughter and son on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu. Note the groovy seaweed embellishments! And Waikiki isn't the best beach...Kailua had a much more impressive, less rocky, less populated beach by far! The big island (Hawaii) had even better beaches, but we didn't get a chance to do much there due to the business trip. Someday I'll post more about Hawaii.
Back to work!!!
