    Flooding

    I hate to see the images I have seen of Ames today. It will be a big mess and a big hurdle to clean that all up, especially with the fall semester so close.

    A big thank you to all who are helping with flood relief and cleanup. You guys stay safe over there.

    The good thing is that the community of Ames will pull up their boot straps and get to work. The people of the heartland aren't scared of a little hard work.

    Ok I needed a laugh. Not sure that was the intention but well done sir. I will now go back to boiling my water.


    Very important lesson learned... NEVER pass up the opportunity to acquire a bottle of Templeton Rye... NEVER.
