Good Morning From the Virginia Piedmont
Lulu's National Board Certification conference is being held at the Landowne Resort near Leesburg VA. While she is "board certifying" I plan to be reliving "The Battle of Bull Run" - the first land battle of the Civil War. This is the view from our 8th floor hotel room looking northwest. One can barely see the front range of the Blue Ridge Mountains through the morning haze. The Manassas National Battlefield is about 10 miles south of our hotel. In 1978 - 1980 we used to motor through here when we had the tour bus. It was all rolling empty fields and hills. Now look at it.
