Just found your website-What blogging conference did you go to?

I think you could knock three off your life list with a trip to Idaho, if climbing an extinct volcano would qualify!

Craters of the Moon National monument is a wonderful place to visit and is near Hailey, Idaho where I used to live (I live in Boise, ID now). There are ice caves and cinder cones and all sorts of geological wonders to see. This time of year is a great time to visit-not too hot!

I am going to Hailey this coming weekend to be married and we are staying in a Bed and Breakfast-I will let you know what I think, if you would like me to. It will be my first stay in a B&B.

The third on your bucket list? Well-Hailey is not too far from Jackpot, Nevada and I’m quite sure they have Blackjack tables there!

Anyway-it’s fun to think about.
Thanks! Judi

When in doubt, mumble; when in trouble, delegate; much more charge, ponder.
Do over is required. Is there a distance between someone who achieves cause real progress consistently and people who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.

I would love to take Kaitlyn to the Grand Canyon too!!! Remember those trips we took? Camping it tents – would love to show Kaitlyn how to ‘rough it’. Cooking over a campfire, heating up hot water on the kerosene stove to wash dishes, snowball fights in the mountains, etc….. Man, those where the best trips ever and I got to experience them with you!!!!! Love you and am blessed to have these memories with you!

If you feel any of these problems, you must understand that there is black
mold somewhere in your house and you need to locate and remove it.
If you don’t deal with the continual mold issue inside your home or office, the result can be much worse.
Leaks in your roof or around windows, plumbing problems
and even cracks and crevices in the walls allow moisture to seep into your home’s

Some people will start to have rashes on their arms of face and this is the
result of these black mold health effects. If you have been unfortunate enough to have had
a mold issue after taking all the above steps it is important to
find a reputable, reliable mold remediation company that will help you
remove the mold problem and will guide you in the proper
ways to fix and alleviate future mold reoccurrences.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love
what youve got to say. But maybe you could a
little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two
images. Maybe you could space it out better?
