Posting from The Little Engine that Could

I am so proud of Amtrak this morning! I've always been a fan. It feels like such a comfortable, safe way to make short trips. And, frankly, since we bill travel costs back to our client, I wish we would all take the train to their downstate offices because it's so much cheaper than driving, what with gas prices at about $3.75/gallon.

But now with the new highspeed rail, I'm zipping along past the cornfields on schedule and faster than the cars on highway. My wifi connection is solid enough to allow me to answer a couple emails and update this here old blog.

Here's hoping the rest of my workday goes as smoothly as the commute!


  1. in the area i live..nothing here is train/bus friendly...ugh i would love to walk to a bus or train stop to whisk me off to work, shopping etc..
    the pitfall of living rural...but i do get to see wildlife and horse at the corner of the subdivision :0)

  2. Sounds luxurious! And here, gas is $3.93/gal (I just filled up).
