Did You Vote Today?!


Vote today!

If you took the time to vote today, thank you.  If you don’t have time today, maybe you can vote tomorrow.  Voting ends on August 11.  You can vote everyday until then.

Now, what picture looks like it’s from the 1960s?  The 1st photo or this one?

American Movie Classics has created a series called Mad Men. It's about an advertising agency in the early 1960s. Currently, they are holding a contest for a walk on role. This kid has a degree in marketing. This kid knows about the 60s. This kid would love the experience. This kid needs your vote.

Let's see if we can help get her there. Please go to the link and vote for Lauren428. You can vote once each day from each computer. Just click on the stars to vote. Tell a friend. Link up if you like.

Vote often.

I'll let you know if she makes it. Thanks for your help.

World Peace


There are many disturbing issues in the world that bother me – illegal immigration, government intrusion, world peace, irresponsible people / businesses with their hands out, people acting like Chicken Little shouting that the Earth is warming! These are things I have decided not to get my undies in a wad over. My mantra will be to concentrate on things that I can control.

I decided to try to grow the perfect tomato. I have grown the perfect tomato. Let the angels sing. I picked my perfect Ace tomato this morning. A cool, refreshing breeze kissed my cheek to confirm that this was the perfect tomato. A photograph was taken to mark this date in history. Imagine, the photo didn’t even need to be touched up at all. The above image is straight out of the camera.

Now, I will move on to conquer something else. Perhaps I will grow the perfect pumpkin later this summer. For now, I will be satisfied with my accomplishment and look to creating the perfect salsa.

Just kidding about the cool, refreshing breeze. We got a fever of 103 today. Es muy caliente.
