August 13th

Walkin'

Bed and breakfast

While traveling, I like the concept of staying at a bed and breakfast, but I must admit to being a little leery of them at the same time.
I like to decide what and when I eat, so ceding control of a meal is one issue. Sometimes I don’t want a big breakfast, and often I like to have my morning repast as early as 6 a.m. And while one part of me likes being around fine and/or antique furniture, another part fears I’ll flatten a priceless chair by sitting in it or accidentally destroy some irreplaceable knickknack.

An eye on the Hawks

For the next three weeks I’ll take a look at the Iowa Hawkeye football team.
Iowa has a lot of talent back from a 9-4 football team and it will be interesting if they can be as good or better than predicted.
Media day was last Friday and the Hawkeyes look ready to rumble and with a little help from my homeboys, Kelly Neustrom and Terry Intveld, we got some nice quotes and pictures.
This week I’ll look at the defense.
