Hello all,
Took a trip to IOWA last week. We visited my girlfriend's family for a family gathering because her great aunt was turning 90. She was doing awesome for 90 and she said her secret to being so charming and sharp at her age was that she kissed the fountain of youth twice. She was really amazing. yeah, IOWA, not a place at the top of everyone's list but it was cool to visit. I love going to places I've never been. We actually tried to watch the president speak there because he was giving a speech about a mile from our hotel, but they wouldn't let us in. It was a free gathering but I guess they do background checks on everyone a few days before they send the free tickets. I was kinda bummed because there were a ton of cops out front just standing there. I asked can't you just do a background check on me now? You're not doing anything else? Denied. Well, it was cool to see his big parade of cars show up from outside and I saw W Bush's limo pull up to the events center. Because I had walked right up through the front door where the president was supposed to enter. I had a ton of FBI and CIA guys checking me out from all over. It was kind of funny. I think they thought I was aterrorist or something. I think they think everyone's a terrorist. Anyways, IOWA has great corn and it is very green and peaceful. Other than that, that is about it. Michael Moore has a crazy movie that you should check out if you haven't seen it. (It will definitely get you thinking)
