Fried Candy Bar.  Mmmm... hot!

Fried Candy Bar. Mmmm... hot!

I am back!  Nothing like a little jaunt into America’s heartland to rejuvenate the soul, and embolden the spirit (more on this in a later post).  Here are a few pictures from the Minnesota State Fair.  And yes, I DID see the seed birth certificate. Pretty awesome display.  Enjoy!

That’s me pointing like an idiot.  I had to get in the picture.

President Obama in seeds.   Pretty cool.

Our nation’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.

Finally, here I am with a Minnestoa staple:  Peach-chipotle glazed pig cheeks.  You wish you were there don’t you?

    Middle America is a great place. In general none of us lean to far to the right nor the left unless we are leaning into the wind for balance..
