Window install part one...

We're getting new front windows today.  On an only slightly related note, I was just handed our old flag support which was attached to the old window's woodwork.  It says made in Korea on it.  I find this more than a little bit ironic!

The people at the polls...

jrstraus and I voted last Monday, as I mentioned before we had a 45 minute wait.  The procedure at the polling place, was for you to submit your name, and wait for it to be called why the checked on stuff, and dealt with people that had arrived earlier than you.  Anyway, while we were waiting we heard a name.  A name which initially brought great interest to us, to Jen because it's a (was) a fictional person, and to me because I'm a man.  That name was "Daisy Duke".  After we got done checking with each other that we had heard the woman calling it correctly, we looked to see Daisy.  The years since, or perhaps because of, the Duke's of Hazard have not been kind to Daisy.

I know it's cliched, but being a parent is by far the hardest thing I've ever done!

Civic duty...

jrstraus, the little guy and I all went to the polling place today to vote.  We were successful in voting.  We had to wait 45 minutes, we arrived at high noon, and it took longer than usual to vote, do to a struggling child, but we managed to get it done.  I'm curious for those of you that don't vote early, how long the lines will be next Tuesday.  All in all I was pleased with how it all went down.  If you can you should vote early too.  If you can't you should still vote on Nov. 4 though.

Understanding finances...

If you want to have a better understanding of the current financial crisis, spend 2 hours listening to these two radio reports. This is a complex problem, so it takes a little bit of time to get all the details and have your brain wrap itself around it. Anyway, I found these to be amazingly helpful as all the other reporting I've heard up to this point, only scratched the surface.

Another Frightening Show About the Economy (Play Audio)

Seriously, these are really good.

I attempted to install child locks on the cabinets today. Either we bought cheap ones or this really is significantly more difficult than it looks!

If you don't have kids now, but do own your home and expect kids in the future, begin now. It may take you several months/years to accomplish this task.
