Married 25 yrs this yr. No children, had a still born baby boy, 22 yrs ago. Filled in the void with joining to many nonprofits and volunteering most of my spare time and then some. All though I do get paid at my nonprofit job it is only enough to get by not enough to make a profit, Hmm, so that's why they call them nonprofits? Will plan to retire and then cut back on the volunteering and do some traveling as much as Social Security will let me.

Iowa's Loess Hills Posted On: 1/29/2008 11:36:12 AM
The Loess Hills (www.byways.org) in Iowa are by far one of the most unique and beautiful places to visit in North America if not the world. The soils are rare, as well as the people you will meet. What makes Iowa special is that, it and only one other place that can make this claim is in China. There are loess soils in other areas but China and Iowa are the deepest, with respectively over 200 ft. for each location. Each town has it's own story to tell as far back as 6000 yrs. Yes, 6000 years. They have found spear points, stone tools, and burials to indicate that humans have inhabited the hills. You can stop into any tourism attraction and you will be greeted with a smile and leave with a wealth of information. You will darn near feel like family and vow to return some day. Another website to help you learn more is (www.traveliowa.org) which will link you to other interesting areas in Iowa to visit. No time like the present. Click away and make time to stop by.
