Re: Amazing what 2 weekends in the garden makes!

Daryl: Oh, it's still mostly rural here in Iowa...only a handful of
places w/ >50,000 people (the college towns mostly) and only 5 or 6
metro. areas. Total state popul. is around 3 million. The town I live in
is 679 people. The largest town nearby is Iowa City, pop. 70,000 when
the University is in session, about 50,000 when it is not. But we are
rather proud of our University Hospital...it is ranked nationally #1 in
at least 3 specialties, and has world class research/treatment centers
overseen by professionals who are internationally acclaimed in their
fields. You'd be surprised what you find hiding amongst the cornfields
here in addition to the hospital. If anyone ever comes this way, give me
a heads up and I'll send you some links to some really cool places to

Blessings in Christ's mercy,


Work for the Lord:  the pay isn't much but the retirement is out of this world!
