> Dear friends:  Have only been home from work two hours and already I've had the most amazing day!  Got to leave work early, that was a bonus!!  Had a dense fog alert this morning and couldn't see twenty feet in front of my car all the way home and the temp. is below freezing...and it was a sight that always takes my breath away.  And one of the reasons I would never trade our midwestern winters for living in warmer spots.

And our quarterback, Banks, is up for the Heisman!  That rocks!  I don't think  we've had a Heisman nominee since I was a freshman in college.
