Sunday Morning just seems like a good time to write about the stuff that goes by during the week and/or a look at what we might expect this week. Grab the coffee and let's visit about short, sweet Sunday thoughts...
First up is a "shout out" to a friend who had a dream and made it happen. I LOVE these kinds of folks... Vicki Lipira of St. Joseph, MO loves mysteries both reading and writing. She wanted to have her own business and publish stories for writers in a subscription based magazine. Tah Dah...Great Mystery and Suspense Magazine! All the best Vicki!
From the, "What the HECK File": This past week the princess of Saudi Arabia, Princess Lolwah Al-Faisal was asked if she were "...Queen for a day" what she would do to promote greater interfaith understanding. She said, "First thing, I'd let women drive." Is it any wonder we don't "get it" when it comes to Islam.
Hey...the 52nd Annual Iowa Power Farming Show hits Des Moines this week. Three big days to check out the equipment, visit with producers and see what is new. Two of our clients will be there...Calcium Products an input company from NW Iowa and FOTON/Mayer Farm Implement showing off compact tractors made in China. Should be fun...see you there!
Bottled Water Guilt! Yep, our friends at the Presbyterian Church and the United Church of Christ have launched into a boycott of bottled water saying that water is God's gift and bottling it for economic reasons is wrong. OK...... Here's a better angle...let's figure out how to clean up the water we are currently given. Make sense?
Iowa's flags have been ordered by Governor Culver to fly at half-staff this Tuesday in observance of the recent death of Command Sgt. Major Marilyn Gabbard. His first executive order will also apply to any future deaths of Iowa troops who fall in combat. One reader noted that the flags are already at half-mast but that order by President Bush to honor former President Ford is over on Monday.
Not a great way to end the BLOG...but know our prayers are with these families...no matter where.
