Midsummer!

Yay! It was rather lovely today- perhaps a break from the continously gray weather we had for eh mjority of the Spring this year, and a move into true summer. And it came just in time for Midsummer. Lots of gentle sunshine, not too hot at all, and with a light breeze. Just lovely. My goal is to now bike every day, continously, for at least five miles a day to enjoy the sun.

And one small presidential watch point:

So, Barack Obama decided to forgo public financing. There is plenty of grumbling about how he broke his promise to accept public financing. Hmm.
Given how nasty the democratic Primary was, and how nasty lies about Barack Obama circulate through email and tv already, Obama will need every penny he can raise. The Republicans will have no such compunction about using smaller groups money to put forth whatever ads to get McCain elected; I find the surprise about Obama's financing a fine show of childish cynicism.

Edie,
Isn't it awesome that there is finally sunshine! I was beginning to doubt I would ever see summer.
Are u really going to Washington DC then? Have u looked for employment in the northwest at all?
I am taking an assessment test for NW Natural Gas tomorrow. Yeah, it's more call center work, but the starting pay is good.. I have no idea if I'll get it or not..(wish me luck).

Hey Betty-

I am not going to DC until early September, so I am still here. But in order to receive UNemployment bennies, I mus look for work here. and i must admit, I am finding quite a few nice opportunities.

Good on you for taking the NW Gas- yeah, more cc work but at least you can get a good pay rate, which is more than what a lot of people are experiencing these days.

and yes, at ast some summery warmth. Not much, but some!
