I was going to try and stay away from politics and religion (or lack thereof) in these rantings, but I heard a great turn of a phrase this morning that I had to share. James Carville was going on the way he does in his usual smiley-faced way and giving his slant on the Republican presidential candidate wannabees. When asked about Mitt Romney and his flip flop on so many things, he immediately referred to him as a "serial windsock." His timing and delivery were in top form and coffee came out of my nose I was laughing so hard. Granted, Good Morning America is not much of a news show anymore, but it comes on after the local news when I am out feeding horses so I forget to turn it off. Once in a while something truly wonderful happens in the news to make a memorable morning moment (nice alliteration, huh?). Carville did it today. 

Here is an official picture of Akureyri, Iceland, south of where my grandfather was born. It is about 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle and has been getting dusted with snow a few times in the past week or so. I have only been there once, but hope to go again in late spring. It is a wonderfully hidden gem in the middle of the North Atlantic.


  1. Oh Jon
    Makes me want to visit Iceland. I am thinking that the comments will now work. I will go back and post the other comments I wanted to make if this one works.

  2. Thanks Nina Things seem to be working now.
