Boy Scouts of America 2011 Leadership Dinner

Last night John and I were invited to the 2011 BSA Leadership Dinner. One of the owners of my company is on the steering committee. What an enjoyable evening! The company was great, the food was great and the speakers were great!! Those boy scouts really put on a nice dinner. The CEO of Duke Energy was the honoree last night. He gave a wonderful speech about leadership and past leaders in the world. He mostly talked about Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandella. He said these two figures in history that had to face alot of challenges in their lives but how they actually learned to get along with their opponents and make things work. The scouts color guard was excellent in the flag presentation also. I got to take the flower centerpiece home too, which was a very nice surprise! A good evening had by all!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
