If you are not going to sprint the horse get out of the saddle

I will learn the difference between an excuse and fact.

I am just barely in Iowa......I guess that it still NW Iowa......Sioux City has lots of hilly areas as well as Loess Hills......Iowa is a great place to call home.

Just take it one day at a time.

Iowa is a great place to live. Hope you like it here.

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

We had the most beautiful fall colors this year. The best in several years. I'm in Mason City.

I also live in NW Iowa, have all my life, so far, and am 71, and wouldn't even think of going somewhere else. And we would never consider going S. for the winter like a lot of people. So when are you getting here, and from where.

Iowa is a great place. I live in NW Iowa on a farm. This is the best time of year with harvest going on. Fall is a beautiful season in Iowa-one has to experience it to know what I mean. Winter is near and it's not a favorite of mine. It's cold and snowy, but at least we have 4 seasons. Come to the area in the northwest part of the state known as Okoboji, you'll see why I love it here.

What it's like depends on what part of the state. Some areas are very hilly (not like mountains, just very large hills, most of the state is rolling hills, and other parts are fairly level. Temperatures in the winter can range from -25 to sometimes upper 30's-mid 40's. Summers can get very hot--100+ with high humity--but mostly the summer temps range from 80-95. Seems like there's almost alway a breeze--sometimes downright windy

People here are friendly for the most part, especially in the smaller rural communities.

We have beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

What area are you moving to?
