    This is a nice reminder that there's more than corn in Iowa! I love the Quad Cities that cross over the Mississippi River in both Iowa and Illinois. This time of the year, bald eagles gather there in droves. Festivals, eagle watches and festivals, in Davenport and the other cities are a lot of fun on cold winter days.

    I've been to Iowa a few times and every time im there the state strikes me very much a live-and-let-live sort of place. If you come from places like California, New York, etc, you will even notice this relaxed feeling more and they seem actually more concerned with people than running over them if you catch my drift.
