February 18, 2010

First, a reminder. No Odd Friday Lanyarding at my house tomorrow. I am hosting the first annual Iron Chef competition for the soccer team tomorrow night, plus we have the big NCL Bead-a-Thon in The Woodlands on Saturday.

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and his re-election to Congress.

Without the loan the company would have closed its doors, leaving 300 people out of work. Coolidge, Texas, home to this company, has a total population of fewer than 900 people.
