Return to being Milwaukee-ans


...At least for a week. After a fun-filled weekend of exceptional hospitality in Madison with the Rozas duo, the kids and I headed to Milwaukee with Kate and 'Huck' to catch up with all the folks we've been missing from that neck of the woods. It was awesome to see the Posnanskis, Steinmeyers, Peggy, Wielebskis, Wootens, Enwalds, and especially to have extended quality time with the Heckers. The icing on the cake came when Erin & Adam, Mom & Dad, and Jilly all joined us at Casa de Hecker the following weekend. I only took a couple of blurry photos with my camera-phone, but Heck and Carl got some sweet shots that you can view - (click on their names and it will take you to their photo galleries.)

Vote!

I am so glad that there are only 2 weeks left till Election Day. I, for one, am tired of the campaign ads that reduce my enjoyment of the little TV time I get between episodes of Curious George and Thomas the Train. However, I think it is not only our right, but our duty, to get out and vote, so last week I completed my voter registration for our new address. Today I sat down to finalize my voting decisions, and I found a great website to help make sure that I had chosen the best candidate for my personal views. Maybe it will help you out too: http://www.speakout.com/VoteMatch/Pres2008.asp You answer a quiz and based on your responses, it tells you which candidate best matches your values. It also describes what some of the buzzwords floating around mean, which I found useful. Check it out, or not, but whatever you do, get out and VOTE!
