Things I have learned: The weather is glorious! I hope it stays this way year round. The people are super nice. Every time I see a Cyclone shirt or hat, I smile. It was easy-peasy to sign up for Nex Gen internet and Direct TV for a decent price. Next day service. Works great! Plenty of cool restaurants and bars. The only thing that freaks me out is that I have seen 3 dead birds on the sidewalks. What's up with that? Viva Des Moines!
