I better get started on this now…cause I’ve tried to start a blog each of the last three work days…and failed.
This was one of those morning it was tough to get out of the house. The monitor we have in our room kept cracking like there was some interference with the signal. That was keeping Sally awake. I crawled under the bed to unplug it and move it across the room. No help.

So I went into the boys room to move the transmitter. I woke Will up in the process. He seemed upset and asked if he could go downstairs with me. So I took a couple minutes to calm him down and get him to go back to sleep. So it was a struggle to get out the door.
Here’s the News and a little catching up

The Manufacturing forum in Pella should be interesting. I’d like to hear what these candidates have to say about manufacturing. I’d want to know if they grasp how the world is changing and where the US fits into the overall picture of manufacturing. i think anyone who’s looking for a Maytag factory to come back to a place like Iowa isn’t paying attention. That doesn’t mean manufacturing is dead in Iowa. it means we have to change our thinking about manufacturing radically. Lets see if the Candidates agree.
-Welcome to the front-runner’s seat Herman Cain. These allegations and the conversations surrounding them bring up some uncomfortable issues within the Republican party and in American Politics in general.

-How do you convince yourself that you can still win the Iowa Caucuses when you’ve dropped so hard in the Polls? That’s the question two of the major campaigns have to address. I supposed you are trying to consolidate all of the religious conservative Caucusers but I would have to ask myself…where do you go from there? South Carolina? you would have already lost New Hampshire. Florida is next and as you get farther away from Iowa it would appear the number of religious conservative voters gets lower and lower? So one would have to ask…who are there people who feel this should be the direction of the Republican Party, when clearly, that’s not the reality on the ground in so many parts of the country?

Report Card
Iowa gets it’s report card for grades four through eight. I would think this might be a starting point the administration uses for it’s reforms.

I really don’t care about Kim Kardashian’s Wedding or her Divorce. How is it not clear to anyone who watched this woman that all of this was planned? It’s pretty clear she doesn’t care about anyone but herself…and that she’d do anything to further her own name and celebrity. And lets review…her celebrity stems from her Father’s job, a sex tape and now a failed marriage. We’re the idiots for continuing to watch this train wreck of a person.

New Car
I went into my dealer this weekend after a quick phone conversation. I’m a leaser. I’m two thirds of the way through my latest lease and knew the values of used cars were pretty high. Turns out the value was good enough that I got out of my old lease…got into the 2012 version of my car and lowered my payments by $20! Sounds good to me.
The best part of it is that the 2012 version of the car has bluetooth capability for phone and music. I really like it…and you can’t beat the smell of a new car.

I hope you have a good day!
