The Countdown – November 2009

27 10 2009

Welcome to the Wide Open Spaces of the United States, as was sung one time by the Dixie Chicks.

Let’s discover Daniel’s own gorgeous, though a bit unknown internationally state of Nebraska.

…and this is the beautiful pier in Lincoln where the competition is held!

This is the last edition of TC as we know it since all new & returning managers will be part of juries. smile.gif
