Where have people's hands been? When you shake hands with someone at church, the grocery store or a restaurant what kind of germs are they carrying? I once shook hands with Hillary Clinton and my wife told me to immediately go and wash my hands. She reminded me that her hands had been on Bill Clinton and that I wasn't touching her until I washed my hands.
Eric Justin shared these colorful sunset photos he captured of Raylee, Karma, and Zaeda Braswell and Gabe and Zeke Stevens out Saturday evening trying to catch crappies from a lake near Merrifield. Justin says the crappies were not cooperating, but that, "the sunset was well worth the trip out". After seeing these pictures, we would have to agree they were rewarded with a visual treat.

Ask your Congressman to not penalize Americans who have preexisting medical conditions. The idea floating around now in Congress that insurance companies will be able to charge higher amounts to Americans who are sick is a bad idea. This is an idea from the medical insurance lobbyists who continue to buy Congress. They hand out millions of dollars in money to the campaign coffers of our politicians. The Congress people are supposed to be representing you and your district but they often get bought when they arrive on capital hill.
