Slideshow: Miss Merced County

Somehow I missed this event. It goes to show that there are some great looking people (and cute kids) in our county! Of course, my vote for Miss Merced County went to my lovely wife!

Still Sick

So over the holidays I got sick. I was actually in Disneyland, and got to spend more time in the hotel room, than playing with Mickey.

But I have this lingering cough that won’t go away. I am mad, because I got my flu shot and everything! But I suppose, looking around me there is a lot going around.


McCain and Clinton make a comeback

So New Hampshire thinks differently from Iowa. Go figure.

Again, I have to voice my dislike of this whole primary system. When you register to vote you have to register a party preference. Which, in my opinion, takes away the anonymity aspect of free and fair elections. Yes, yes, I know you can register to be Independent, but doing so will disallow you to vote in some states primary. It also is an indication of some preference (in this case none). I would prefer that there be no requirement to register a preference, and then you get to vote in the party primary of your own choice.
