Halleluiah!  is all I can say.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has left her main working office near the state Capitol for the last time.

The term-limited Democratic governor said final goodbyes and walked out of the executive office around noon Wednesday. Granholm has essentially completed her official business as governor but she retains the power of the office until noon Saturday.

That's when power transfers to Republican Rick Snyder, who'll be sworn in on the Capitol steps.

Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd says the governor left the office carrying a scrapbook full of memories and looking forward to the future. The office is located in the Romney Building across the street from the Capitol.

Granholm couldn't seek re-election this year because of term limits outlined in state law. She's been governor for eight years.

Lest we forget...

LUKE 2: 1-20

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

I'm Back!!!

Howdy neighbors...

Yes... its been awhile since I've done any blogging.  Sorry about that.  Been a little busy... but that's all behind me now.  I've rededicated myself to at least one blog post a week.  I've also set this up to receive severe weather updates (For Kent CO., Mich), so you may see some of those pop up on here.  My intent is to take them down shortly after they expire so as not to clutter up my blog.

Anyway... I'm working on a post that I hope to have done today or tomorrow, so keep an eye out for it.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow!
