It's perfect being featured on someone else's blog. It's like having a party at someone else's house so you don't have to clean yours. SRMM's blog is all pretty and well put together. Donkeys to College is still kind of messy and not quite right.
I want to thank all of SRMM's followers who came over here and read my blog. It was very exciting to see the stats today. I had more people look today than I did the whole week I have been up and running. Thanks guys!! Of course, also lots of thanks to my friends who have been posting my link. xo
For those of you wondering, I am making great strides over here. Just yesterday, I added Tab #2 - the "Home" tab. Yes, it's true that I could have had a "Home" tab all along if I hadn't accidentally deleted it when I was setting up the "About" tab, but that's of no matter now. The technological advances we (think Royal We) are making here at Donkeys to College are truly staggering. I mean we are sailing right along into the 21st century. It's really very cutting edge.

My child wasn't smiling
when he had to shovel.
Let's see, what else do we need to discuss? Well, it snowed a lot here and I had to shovel. But, if you know how to play along at home, you know that is "Not News."
What is news would be the State of the Union Obama gave the other night. I will tell you that I missed it because my daughter had a basketball game, but I read a couple summaries. I am happy to fill you in if you too had something else to do, but don't want to seem hopelessly unaware of what is going on in the country.
Here you go...In the spirit of unity and love of country, many politicians crossed partisan boundaries and sat together. I think there were a few tears and I am pretty sure they were singing Kumbaya. Obama's speech was initially met with support and there didn't seem to be any hecklers. Also, it seemed that Obama looked a little orange-y. There was some discussion (of my Facebook friends) that either he was jaundiced or a little heavy-handed with the self tanner.
Fast forward a day, the GOP still thinks Obama stinks and that he didn't offer up any real information or plans.
Unfortunately, politics has gotten to the point where our president (any president) can't do anything right. It is perhaps the most thankless job on the planet. I am not exactly sure how we keep getting people to agree to do it. It doesn't even pay that much money. And it makes your hair turn gray. I think the real upside to the job is that when you are done, no matter how much anyone disliked you, everyone is willing to pay a lot of money to have you come speak.
