When I started Blogging 2 years ago I was at a slow point in my life. Blogging was great! It allowed me to work on my free writing skills and to express myself on topics I would never have before. Additionally, in reading others blogs, I came to change my views on many things. All in all, it has been a wonderful experience for me.

The slow point is passing and I have not been doing my blog justice for several months now. Even though the OH and I are officially "Empty Nesters II" now (we wrote the final tuition check last week!!!). My work has accelerated, we took on some volunteer work and our social life has become a bit more involved. Add on the training I am doing for a half marathon and with cycling season just around the corner, you can see where this is going. Something will give and Blogging is one of them.

I still expect to continue following my favorite blogs. I would also like to thank all those who took the time to leave such meaningful comments on my posts.

Vaya con Dios mi Amigos.

!@#$ the C.I.A.!

The importance of the C.I.A. having the Minnesota Air National Guard Museum's A-12 Blackbird is such that they and the Air Force have decided its worth annoying the entire Minnesota Congressional delegation. Over the strong objections of the delegation, last week the Air Force sent a contractor to Minnesota to disassemble the plane for shipment to Langley so it can be properly planted among the petunias at the new CIA headquarters. Both Senators have co-sponsored legislation to have the plane returned to Minnesota and reassembled. It is unlikely to happen.

Pity the Air Force or the C.I.A. the next time they need something from any of the Minnesota delegation.
