Things not to discuss at lunch...

So, when people make a request for federal funding, they typically come to you for everything imaginable, and even those things you'd rather not imagine. Like Wastewater Treatment. They then decide, "why not go to lunch to discuss the process and the upgrades, and how many millions of dollars need to be spent on this project?" I guess that people in this business (and plumbers) just don't have a gag reflux.
At least this time we didn't go take a tour after lunch. Now that was the highlight of 2006 for me.

Senator Jim DeMint on Earmark Reform

This is my boss. This is my boss hard at work.
For those of you in the private sector
(who live normal lives are not totally focused on CSPAN2)
the above video offers a good glimpse at what has been happening
on the Senate floor late last week/early this week.
Just so you know, Senator Jim DeMint is shaking things up.
And well, we're proud.

One of the many Christmas Parties

So i have been REALLY behind, but hope to slowly update from our holiday festivities... here is a picture from one of the parties of the season - at Will and I's house actually. The Riverside crew (all of my high school friends) love to get together a few times a year. We had a great time catching up and enjoying one another shortly before Christmas.
