You might not have noticed but there is a big presidential election going on.  Mostly it makes me crazy because the players are just "DISSING" the other side rather than telling me what they want to do to make this a better world.  One of the things I would like more of is OPEN DEBATE on all the issues, but they players and by their representatives.  This website wants that too...  opendebates.org

WOW what a fun thing to do...this is going to catch on big and you heard it here first!  It's called LETTERBOXING and already there are letterboxes spread through out the world.  Short story is that you hide a box with a rubber stamp in it and a blank diary type book.   Folks follow clues to find your box, use your stamp to fill in their book, AND then stamp their stamp in your book.   It's like collecting autographs but you will never have to cross some of them out because they got into trouble like our "sports heroes" seem to do.  Check it out...get involved!   FIND MY BOX IF YOU CAN

Today's website is here for 2 reasons.  Do you know what a BLOG is?  It's short for weBLOG...a diary of sorts that folks keep on the internet for everyone to see.  There are now thousands of such "blogs" and some are most interesting, as the years go by, I'm sure that sociologists will analyze the daylights out of them.  But in the mean time it's just for FUN.  This particular BLOG is by a friend of mine in Northern Minnesota.  I think you'll find it interesting both in finding out what a BLOG is and in following Eric's thoughts!

FIRST A DISCLAIMER: Today's COOL SITE-PICK OF THE DAY is Bawdy!  It borders on adult humor.  DO NOT VISIT THIS SITE if you are easily offended or sensitive!  However it's been on the major news outlets all weekend and it is one of the funniest - poke fun at the political system - just make you laugh - websites I've seen in years.    BE WARNED! 
A couple of brothers have just a little to much time on their hands.   They create "spoof" commercials, mostly in a political vein.  Their latest tops the list.  It's a singing gem featuring the two candidates running for president this year.  As it turns out, it also happens to be Sen. Kerry's favorite song, but that happened by accident.   It will take a while to load, have your sound turned down and enjoy!   OK I WON'T CLICK HERE WITHOUT AGREEING TO THE DISCLAIMER

I know it's not fall yet, but in just a couple of weeks the intense green that is across our fields is going to start changing to a moderate brown and then finally burst out in wonderful golden hues.  This time of the year is when I set aside the Wine bottle opener and pick up the "churchkey!"  Beer, Bier, however you spell it, it's that good blend of barley and hops that goes down so refreshing.   Here's a website with 2000 + beers for you to study.   Pick Carefully!  HEY MAC, POP THE TOP ON ANOTHER ONE
