Voter turnout?

I'm listening to a SciFri NPR discussion about the upcoming election. One of the sub-topics is how to increase voter turnout. What I thought about almost instantly was "What makes them think having even more uninformed gullible twits voting would be a Good Thing?" I say we actively DISCOURAGE voting so only people who really care would do it ;-)

DON'T VOTE it doesn't matter.

Tiny homes hit the big city - CNN.com

It's getting big exposure now, I still would rather live in a tiny simple space than a big house.  Of course with 6 people a dog and two cats, this IS a tiny space :-)

Tiny homes hit the big city - CNN.com

Downsizing from a 1,500-square-foot house to a tiny 168-square-foot dwelling in Floyd, Virginia, Hari Berzins says she loves the freedom when it comes to tiny living. "We live larger on our 3-acre hillside," she said. "We have more time to enjoy each other, tend to our large garden and cultivate a supportive community."<br/><br/><br/><br/><a href='http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-817695' target='_blank'>See more photos of their charming home on Hari Berzin's iReport</a>.

Blue now.

Just saying yes :-)

Our Yellowstone Journey

   We are back from our trip to Yellowstone so I have a moment or two to post here.  On our first day, Wednesday 22 August, we traveled from Ceres to Oregon City and visited with Dan, Connie, Nicole and Travis.  Dan cooked up a big batch to meat on his new grill, yum!  On Friday the 24th we drove to Athol Idaho to Donnie and Louise's place out in the woods.  We went on a brunch cruise with Mom's friends Patricia and Todd and Serenity and I spent another day at the beach in Sandpoint and a day just hanging out with Donnie and Louise.  We played a lot of 10,000 there :-)
   On Tuesday the 28th we drove to West Yellowstone and then spent the next two full days exploring there.  I'd like to go back and do some real hiking some day.  The weather was perfect the whole time, upper 70's and low 80's for the most part, except early in the morning when it was pretty cold.
   On Friday the 31st we left for Elko Nevada on our way home.  South of Twin Falls and just north of Jackpot Nevada we encountered a thick dust storm that reduced visibility to almost zero, I slowed down to a crawl and put on my four way flashers and hoped for the best.  The truck I was following vanished from sight.  After a few miles of that it cleared up.  Then a hundred miles or so down the road we ran into a huge thunderstorm, lightening flashing all around and then a heavy downpour.  I'm glad all that weather was on our way home and not while we were in the park!
  Finally we drove home on Saturday, stopping off for the best burgers I've had in a long time at a little place called the Country Sunflower Cafe in Yerrington, Nevada.

So, if you want to see my pictures from the trip just click here and you can see them:
