August in Deb’s World

Friday, August 17 is State of Now: AgIowa in Ames from 2 to 5.  15 speakers, snacks, cocktails and networking — $10.  There are tickets available.  I am not going to explain further (see notes below where I’ve done that already).
 I am asking you to just buy a ticket.  I’m asking you to come and I hope that you will come – because I’ve asked you. Click right here – and buy a ticket, or two.  It WILL be a good afternoon.  You WILL be happy you came.

Tomorrow, August13 begins Project Get Healthy with my friend D.J. Waldow.  28 days of concentrating on getting healthy.  I’m aiming for 7 pounds down, breaking the addiction to Diet Mountain Dew (I don’t drink any other soda) and begin the switch to Paleo style of eating.  Interested?  Read this blog post.

We’re hosting the 3 county, two day Highway 3 yard sale again in September.  August will be spent coordinating the sign ups, marketing and answering a lot of questions.  Butler, Franklin and Wright counties – September 14 and 15 from 8 am to 6 pm.  See you on the highway!

Wednesday, August 22 I go to Carolina Beach with my girlfriend Lisa.  5 days of girl time, ocean time, down time.  Each year we should all have some down time.  I need to hear the ocean, smell the salty air, laugh with Lisa.  It’s also a time I start the process of thinking of the next year — what do I want it to look like?
