  The following is a guest post by Darcie Purcell, who had a huge ah-ha moment while watching her son’s high school football game.  Darcie is lucky.  It takes many of us much longer to have that same ah-ha moment.

Life in the Boomer Lane attended a presentation yesterday evening, given by a candidate running for county board.  She did this because Now Husband is out-of-town and Downton Abbey didn’t start until 9PM and so she would be home on time.
