Interviews In Progress!

That's right I got my first interview. It went fairly well, though I admit, I'm not as good as I'd like to be. But regardless one is done. (Now I'm hoping Google is going to transcribe it for me, but it's looking kind of doubtful, but it's a big job, so maybe it's just taking some time Ü). Either way I Interviewed Raymond Green, and I will post a link here to the interview when I get it added to Ideally it will be both as a written transcript, and as an MP3.
I was nervous, and I'm not even the one running for mayor!
Still I'm glad I did it, and I hope I can do it again. Ü

But seriously, now that it's real... I can't believe I did it, I'm doing it.
Seriously! Ü

Officials (Officially Speaking)

Well the results are in,
My Local Leaders is the winnner,

And is the new address.

I'm am close to finalizing the questions that each candidate will be asked,
and I have obtained the contact information for everyone running for office in Cedar City.

...I know... I was impressed too!

The primaries will be held September 15th so I will definitely be aiming to have the interviews done before that time, but that shouldn't be a problem (depending on schedules, and of course cooperation).

thanks to all the voters both in the poll and the elections.

Did You Know...

That sometime I just burst into song?

That I prefer cooking to cleaning?

That I have at least nine blogs and seven email addresses?

That I used to be a certified lifeguard?

That I have walked on and tasted a glacier?

That I really don't notice how tall people are?

That I have won prizes for both fishing and shotgun shooting?

That I once drove a train?

That I could really go for a nice roasted leg of octopus?

That I once rode in a taxi (yeah a small, well normal sized taxi) with 6 other people... as a missionary?

What We Saw: The Wild ONES

Just got back from a long, and mostly enjoyable trip, and we saw a lot.
We saw mountains, and rocks, and rivers and streams, water, more water, and windmills and things.

The wild outdoors, was our scene for this trip
But for now I will start with a brief little bit
about the things wild that did live in it.

We saw some cats, and lots of dogs.

We saw horses,
We saw Cows,
We saw some chickens and donkeys and things
We saw some sheep

We saw a few fish (and we ate a few fish, but more on that later)

We saw lots of birds, but I didn't try to identify them all.
(the Osprey)

We saw squirrels, and chipmunks, and various other small rodents (but no beaver)

We saw some deer
The infamous hoary marmot
and then some mountain goats,
and then... big horn sheep.

(wow these sheep must be related to Waldo)

A coyote,
Bison (or was it buffalo, wait, this just in, it may have been both)

and then some elk,
and yes even antelope


(more pictures coming to this post)

Wait! Wait, there's more, I totally forgot about the bears...
