On the Road

After I type this blog I take off for sunny Illinois for a few days to see my mom.  My t-shirts are packed and . . . .well . . . that's about it actually.    I was going to take a laptop but then I see it does not have Excel, but I thought I can use it for photos but then I see it does not have a special slot for that cameras memory card.  It DOES have a USB port and I think my camera also has one . . . hmmmmm.

Yes, yes it does, laptop comes along. 

------------------------
Columbus only had 0.94 inches of rain last night. Not as much as most places in the area. Fun storm if you liked downed trees and so forth,


-----------------


WELL - Wisconsin politics is back in the news - The far left Republicans are passing more bills on war on woman and their mandatory trans vaginal ultrasounds (they stick a camera up your vagina and take photos if you want an abortion - IT'S THE LAW, but the right still say they want LESS government intervention - yea - RIGHT). 


And now the Sundance Film Festival has a movie called "Citizen Koch" about Wisconsin Politics.


Here is a link top the trailer

Otherwise the terra forming continues.  I GUESS this is the summer when the gravel pit disappears and we have beeping and dump trucks 8 hours a day.We can honestly not here TV at times because of the racket.

I have always wondered how they get rid of pits - now I know.  Literally thousands of dump trucks and a caterpillar.  I look out my window right now and I see three trucks - it's constant.  They are making a huge hill where there use to be a 30 foot pit!  Burying whole standing trees.



 That used to be a full size gravel pit - it extended very far to the left AND right.  I'm still looking for BEFORE photos - I'll find them sooner or later as I put EVERY photo into Light Room. NOT that I'm complaining because it was becoming a dump for a while so . . . . . .

We have most of our accounts moved away from Summet and into UW Credit Union and wow - they are so awesome. Less fees, we can take a photo of checks and deposit them, better online interface. I lost my original debit card and went to the place and they printed a new one - no charge. 

------------------------------

I gotta get ready.

I'll try to blog from ILL tomorrow.

Cheers!
