I vote that we date

Happy Election Day! I hope you are all at the polls today because it’s so important to vote.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m older now and have more at stake, but politics has become some what of a fixation. I usually don’t talk politics when I’m just meeting someone new. I figure that I should get to know a person before I start letting politics get in the way.

Do you feel pressure to date within your political party? Would it be difficult to date someone with opposing political views?

I think I would be willing to date someone with different ideals than I but I can’t recall having done so before.

I’m the type that have ideals across the spectrum so I suppose it makes it a bit easier. What do you think our political views say about us and our compatibility in dating?

I would like to wish…

I could eat a slice of raspberry swirl cheesecake and not have to worry about the calories

Elizabeth would go to sleep immediate after finishing her lunch and I can take a nap with her

I didn’t have to wear contacts or glasses anymore

I didn’t promise to do a favor for an associate that I don’t really feel up to doing today

You all a pleasant enjoyable remainder of the day.

Blackfoote, with a wire brush while cleaning the grill. Someone was suppose to clean it the last time it was used but HE didn’t. I did it this morning after getting back home because I will be using it later today.

Conference/meeting rant…….Speaking of voting, I’m looking sideways, somebody in this meeting just cracked a joke…I’m paraphrasing and probably will lose some of the essence of what they are tryna say but ummm, I didn’t find it funny….don’t get out or no need to vote if you’re democrat or get out and vote if you’re republican…it was a trite more crass when said. Maybe I’m too serious but I ain’t found it funny…clear folks. I guess me looking at them sideways caused the quick save of “you can say that for either side”…what side? Thought we were one country…gheesh Folks kill me tryna say what they really want in a round about way. Obama ain’t got us jacked up

Swiss, Brett can do what he wants. LOL, Goodell is ust leaving him alone. I hate how the Vikings are bending to whatever Brett wants, but the old guy is tough 41 years old and keeps getting out there and taking the hits from the young guys. But that doesnt win games for us. LOL

@Purp- I heard Childress talking about he might bench Brett. I was like yeah right. He is the old guy on the field but still the heart of champion. I do want him to hang it up tho. I didn’t get the whole scoop on Randy tho. What is the deal with that?

Clean the grill? Just light a new fire and then once the grill is hot let that stuff burn off and use some foil to rub the rest off. What doesnt come off is just seasonings
