Nursery Contest–Part 3

This one didn’t involve an airport. Just me driving into rural Pennsylvania, getting lost, ending up in a severe thunderstorm and stumbling into my crew at a bar. (The best place to find your coworkers, by the way!).

The next morning we met Kathleen and her family. They live in a beautiful old home in a quaint town surrounded by rolling hills…it reminds me of where I grew up in State College.

Kathleen is an artist and creates a lot of cool stuff. Her website is A lot of her nursery was inspired by her own artwork and I think she did a fabulous job. Not only that, but she now has it in full use. Baby Jude was born this July. He’s so cute and the family seems to be doing well.

I loved meeting all three of our moms. They were so gracious and patient. Having a TV crew invade your space isn’t typically that much fun. But we really did all have a good time. And I find it so cool that these moms who live away from the big cities have carved out their niche in the blogosphere.  It shows ingenuity, risk, and creativity can happen anywhere. Well, at least anywhere there’s wireless.

So don’t forget to vote. And while you’re there, check out the videos we shot. Thanks moms!

    Kathleen is fabulous! She can make something beautiful out of what appears to be nothing at all. She’s a constant inspiration and a great friend.

    M, returning the tax rate to pre-emergency conditions raises all boats and everyones cost, not just the PYCC, though some would have us assume as muchand some will not except that argument, so now were down to pet care in a desperate attempt to illustrate that we should sympathize with their expenditures. Their number is fixed, so the only way to change the number is to reduce the value of their property so they pay the same as we do. The market seem to think the same way this year, by reducing their inflated value to the more reasonable one. Perhaps a few more years of devaluation will make the Hastingsfeel more comfortable?

    I find the talk about Nursery Contest–Part 3 | Of Fi I Sing all a bit meaningless. Political leaders and central bankers round the planet have done everything they can to prop up failed banks, and loans that was imprudent from the onset. We will not have a real self sustaining recovery without an end to deficit spending and lots of lending institutions going bust. I find discussion about mortgage finance and loans a bit meaningless. I also think the property costs have to fall a lot even now. I mean why would you want to own a home in the US or France? Isn’t it much more cost effective to rent? Regards, Ranae Breland

    I must voice my gratitude for your kindness supporting people that must have help on this important topic. Your real dedication to passing the message all around was exceedingly helpful and has constantly encouraged those just like me to arrive at their ambitions. The informative advice signifies a lot to me and far more to my fellow workers. Thanks a ton; from each one of us.
