   Linder posted on Main Page The Lobby  I have never been a huge Texas Governor Perry fan but I hope everyone was watching the program with Hannity tonight. I've just been smacked in the face with a whole bunch of common sense.

   NotaBene  Governor Perry was my choice as a President. I was sorry that in the debate he looked so spaced out. I learned later that he had back surgery days before and was taking pain killers. He is a wonderful man that love this country. If he runs again he will be my favorite. We need somebody like him to get this country back.

And Linder, you are right, he is a common sense man. I understand what he says and I agree with him in every way.

   Linder posted on Suggested Reading  Picked up "Flags of our Fathers" for a quarter yesterday .... was sitting in the porch swing reading it when I handed it off to Gramps to look at some pictures .... and he has yet to return it. Also bought and read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven". Poignant!

   Linder posted on Gardening & Landscaping  First green beans and new potatoes from the garden today....flavored with bacon, ham, onion and garlic. I had forgotten what fresh from the garden food tastes like.

   BirdsNest  Last Friday evening I picked 37# green beans from the 75ft row to take to the flea market to sell. On Wednesday I picked an additional 11# beans from the same row. Since we have no place to sell them except the flea market(Sat.only ) we gave them to friends. This evening I will pick the other row,different kind of beans,more slender and these we will take to the flea market tomorrow.Last week we had 2 big buckets of green peppers,mix of bell and Italian,sold many but also gifted friends with the rest. I will pick the peppers tomorrow before we leave. Eggplant will be ready sometime next week. Tomatoes are beautiful but refusing to ripen, so we just might enjoy some fried green tomatoes while we wait. The pole Limas are recovering from the beating of 44mph winds from H. Arthur. The wind beat the heck out of the vines in the air.Getting a few cukes, enough to enjoy with dinner. I ate one while I surveyed the progress in the garden this morning. Luffas are on the fence, now I have to "police" them to stay on the fence so the neighbor won't mow them down. Kuri squash the size of soccer balls. Potatoes could be investigated for "grovelin' taters" but I can wait.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Looks like we Iowans are in for a bumpy weather ride until about six o'clock. Have taken meds, important papers and things, to the basement. Will keep tuned in to our excellent TV and radio weather reports and try to be safe. After today we have good weather ahead.

   Gram77  Do take care. Sounds like you are used to heading for the basement with all the proper important papers. Much like preparing for a hurricane but without a safe basement.

   Gerty  Please stay safe! Prayers coming at you from Mid-Hudson region of NYS.

   Balogreene  Stay safe Linder and family.

In about 1980, I had a horrible infection in my jaw, Tornadoes were all over the area for the western Chicago suburbs. I went to the dentist, got my percocet, drank some scotch, listened to all the alerts while I was watching movies on TV. The next morning, I woke up in an inside closet, the closet door was closed, I had my pillow, two comforters, two cats, their food and water. I didn't have a basement, and that was the only enclosed area on inside walls in the house.

   Linder  Thanks all for your concern. Balo, loved your story! I'll keep that in mind. Won't have the meds but I could double the scotch.

   Balogreene  I was afraid of tornadoes from 1967 (or thereabouts ), when they locked us out of Jr. High while we watched the funnels go overhead. When we got home that afternoon, the funnels we had watched had hit Belvedere IL. They hit the high school, just as the school buses with students from elementary through high school were in the lot. A lot of kids my age were killed or injured.

When I moved to NM in 1982, I finally realized a thunderstorm did not mean a tornado. That is a long time to hold that fear.

   Linder posted on Recipes  First picking of green beans. My neighbor said to saute them with bacon, onion and garlic in olive oil. I did and they were delicious.

   Linder posted on Politics  Know this is anecdotal but I'm having fun. This is the third evening in a row that someone has stopped at our house.... joined us on our porch and asked about our Republican candidates.

   Linder  Just now getting back...first of all, I'd get all elite on you in a minute...if I knew how : ) We had just come off our Primary Election and the State Republican Convention and both were in the News when I wrote that. One young neighbor guy(25 yrs old ) is interested and asks me to explain things he has read in the newspaper. Another neighbor (Democrat ) had read that Republicans had had an intra-party fight at the Convention and it gave me great pleasure to tell him that we certainly had and it was a good thing....that we do not march like little soldiers to special interests like Unions. Another man had voted against a family friend and needed reassurance that he had done the right thing. Some friends were just pleased with the election...some hadn't voted and wished they had. BTW, I always have white wine on tap (boxed ) to share with political friends on the porch.

   Linder posted on Main Page The Lobby  Attended the Iowa Republican Convention today. Gov. Jindall, Sen. Paul and Rick Santorum were guest speakers. Surprised me how warm and witty Jindall and Paul were. That doesn't come across on TV. I'm not a big Santorum fan...always get the feeling he is talking down to me and he's a bit put out that I don't appreciate him quite enough. We have excellent candidates for state and federal offices and there was excitement in the air today. Know it won't make a lot of people happy but sounds like Iowa will have first in the nation status again in 2016 with our caucuses. Also heard convention cities still in contention are Dallas, Denver, Cleveland and Kansas City. ... Next Saturday, Republican Delegates from our Congressional District go to a special convention to select our candidate for the general election since no candidate got 35% of the primary vote. Exciting for us political junkies.

   Surfhut  Thank you for being so involved. Love reading your experiences. I'm not a Santorum fan, either. Personally, I'd like to see the convention in Cleveland.

   Linder posted on Politics  Tuesday was Primary Election day in Iowa and because no Republican candidate received 35% of the votes a special convention will meet later this month and decide who our Congressional candidate will be. This is the second time I have been a delegate to such a convention....both times resulted from the seat being open and having several very good candidates run. For the first time I had not decided who I would vote for until the day before the election and he was near the bottom of my list when the campaign began. There are pros and cons to this system of selection and I expect it to be challenged in the future.... but for now, I am excited about being one of 513 delegates who will decide who our candidate will be.

   Linder posted on Coffee Klatch  Traveled to my first meeting this eve as a new member on a seven county board of an action committee that provides financial assistance to people in need. Of course... Federal, State and private money is involved. Asked only a few questions but for the most part believe new members need to listen and learn for a while. Have a great deal to learn but believe it will be so interesting that I'm anxious to give it the time required.

   Linder  Gerty, Appreciate your comments. I'm sure it's easier to be involved in rural areas. This is what I know. I can sit on the sidelines and criticize and be a self imposed expert or I can get involved...find out what really is going on and make common sense decisions from there.
