This ad is wonderful, more about parenting and literacy than getting him elected.
I can even use it in the Every Child Ready to Read workshops when Obama is president!
(The version I saw on TV here is for FL, not NC. And I don't know why the quality of the video is so bad, looks just fine on YouTube and on Obama's site....)

I can't wait to see the FL yellow turning blue.
You can click on each state to find out the facts, and you can make the colors change if you are so inclined.

The guys worked for a really long time today. EVERYTHING is covered with a thick layer of cement dust from all the pavers that had to be cut. The driveway, the front door, the trees, there is some on the roof, in the yard, and our neighbor's roof, trees and yard. So it's a little hard to see what it will look like, but it still looks great. The low walls around the landscaping right up against the house are done.
The retaining wall will get higher and be capped off like the ones in the front, making a top people could actually sit on.
Tomorrow the job will pretty much be finished. The low wall around the mailbox will be built, everything else finished off, concrete poured around the sides of the driveway, the pavers covered with sand and then washed, to push the sand down in between. It will be beautiful when washed, and we can choose, for more money, to have it sealed in about a month if we want, to keep that beautiful just washed look for a few years. I think maybe we will do that, and maybe do the pool deck at the same time. We'll see how much we feel like spending another couple of thousand dollars.
This is one of the most played songs on my iPod. Take a listen if you don't know it already, great message, and the kind of song that you have to sing along to, loud.
