Bond....James Bond

My wife and I watched Agent 007 run, shoot, leap and sashay through 2.5 hours of action, suspense and death defying tricks on Saturday night at Eagan's Regal 16 Theaters.  Sometimes, I wonder what it would be like to be an international spy.....

Stepping up...

Tuesday was an important day for all to vote, an American right, responsibility and privilege. Our voting took place at nearby Chapel Hill Church.  The ballot included presidential candidates, amendments and election of local politicians, etc.

Community conservatives

These 4 candidates fly a Republican flag.  It's election day - vote!

Local liberals

Political yard signs abound as we approach the national election day of November 6. Voters will reelect or replace the president, choose the 113th Congress, settle 33 Senate and 13 governors' races and select a slate of state, territorial and local representatives.  How will you vote?
