Lesson 443: Survey Says

Weekend greetings, Readers!  

All is well at the Lamp Post.

The fall rains are starting to come to the Erie area right on schedule.

The clouds make for brilliant skies.

The golden rod blowing around by the fall winds
has puffed my eyes up quite nicely.
I sneeze uncontrollably every morning and late evening.

The pollen this time of year is hell on my nose,
but it sure makes a pretty backdrop for my deer friends.

A big, bright spot of the past week
was daughter Ellen Louise's sixteenth birthday.
I snapped the traditional lit-cake photo.
I couldn't decide which I liked better,

or black and white.

I posted it on facebook and let my friends decide.

To make the vote a little more fun,
I decided to use the results as a Presidential Election predictor.

The color votes went to Trump.

The black and white votes went to Hillary.

American voters have a clear choice on Nov. 8. We can elect an experienced, thoughtful and deeply knowledgeable public servant or a thin-skinned demagogue who is unqualified and unsuited to be president.:

The results of my photo poll are as follows:

  • 76 total votes
  • 64 women
  • 12 men
  • The women were split dead even, 26 Color/Trump, 26/Black & White, 12 Both/Undecided
  • 42% Color/Trump
  • 38%  Black & White/Hillary
  • 20% Undecided (these diplomats voted Both)
I would dare say that the results of my poll are eerily similar to the national numbers

These results didn't help me too much.
I'm still undecided for both--
photos for frames 
candidates for President.

I thought I'd do a little research into what the demographics are saying about this election.
Here is one source:

Demographic differences in support of Trump vs Clinton.  Interesting 7-7-2016 2-30-10 PM:

Will the soccer moms leave the sidelines 
and become key players in this election?

Read the article linked below,
especially if you fall into one of these states.

The Soccer Moms of 2016 From Cuban millennials to skittish soldiers, here are the demographics that will matter most when America votes.   Read more:

Our Future President is hitting the campaign trail

by car!
She passed her permit test!

Mother Eloise keeps telling her just to watch the road,
not the woods for creepy clowns
(we've been driving A LOT of back roads this week).

The Lamp Post is well protected.
I have a killer 12 year old Labrador retriever on guard
and I hung my ax up in the entry way.

It's right next to my race medals and numbers in the garage.
It's one of the few places I get to expose my clutter of a collection--
that spot,
the refrigerator door,
and my Team Adrenaline bag.
They are like little museums of my mind
that my family isn't allowed to mess with.

The rest of the house I keep clutter free so we all can function efficiently.

You can see the newest Barber Beast medal hanging next to Jesus.
If you are considering signing up for the challenge next summer,
contact Eloise.  
Team registration for Beast 2017 is opening soon.
Kenyan, Doc, and I will be glad to have you.

Here is a video created by local photographer Rob Frank of what the obstacles are like.
If you want to make an obstacle course race your goal for 2017,
sign up for this one with me.
We'll have a blast!
It's the most fun you'll ever have exploring the entire peninsula on foot.
I'd like to include more teens and their parents next you.
Expect a message from Eloise soon, parents!

Have a splendid weekend, Readers.
Stop and smell the flowers.
Cherish them while you can.
Their days are dwindling.
