Everyone probably thinks that I have been lost in Denver because I haven't posted to the Blog for 48 hours. Well, this isn't my week for technology. On the first night my digital camera went on the fritz and then on the second night my computer froze up. We took it over to the media center and a great techie from Google looked at it and said that the hard drive was "fried" and nothing could be done but to purchase a new one. Of course all of my software was on the old hard drive....

So I have not been able to access the Blog since then. I am on right now borrowing another computer, and will try to find access again later today.

Last night the biggest surprise was when Obama showed up unexpectedly at the convention after Sen. Biden's speech... absolutely electrifying the crowd.

As much fun as I have been having, my boys Will and Wes have been having more. They have been blogging for Kids Rock the Vote 2008 and have interviewed Ann Hathaway, Ashley Judd, Susan Sarandon, Chris Daughtry, Fall Out Boy, Zoey Deschanel, Mathew Modine, Reps Patrick Kennedy, Charley Rangel, John Lewis, John Tanner, Chet Edwards, Barney Frank, Dale Kildee, and many others. Perhaps I should have spent more time with them and less time at the convention. More later.
