Texas - Early Voting begins Oct 20!

One more photo from my trip to Vicksburg, an addition to my flag collection =) A reminder to all that early voting begins on October 20th in Texas, which is tomorrow! It felt good to see and hear Colin Powell's reasoned decision in selecting Obama on Meet the Press today. I've always liked Gen. Powell, and have had a copy of his rules for life hanging in my work cubicle for a long time.
If you are in need of voting information in Texas, please visit the link here to the Secretary of State....

They're worth repeating:

Colin Powell's 13 rules for life:

1. It ain't as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning.
2. Get mad, and then get over it.
3. Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.
4. It can be done!
5. Be careful what you choose. You may get it.
6. Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.
7. You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone else make yours.
8. Check small things.
9. Share credit.
10. Remain calm. Be kind.
11. Have a vision. Be demanding.
12. Don't take counsel of your fears or naysayers.
13. Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.
