Boise, the capitol of Idaho and its largest city, stands on the Boise River at the extreme upper end of the Boise Valley. It is primarily a city of trees and homes and enviable climate. Protected by great mountains on the north and lying in a belt of prevailing westerly winds, it and its valley are never outraged by the cold blizzards that sweep down from Canada and paralyze eastern Idaho and the states beyond.

Day two of (Postcard) American Guide Week spotlights the Capitol of Idaho and the place I was born and raised.
At the time the Idaho: A Guide in Word and Pictures (1937) was published there were 21,544 people living in Boise. As of the 2010 census Boise’s population was 205,671, so nearly ten times what it was 75 years ago. Even with the influx of people it’s still a beautiful place with plenty of open space, outdoor activities and scenic beauty.
Can’t wait to be home on Wednesday!
BOISE — Three former dairy workers with Idaho’s largest dairy operation have been charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty after undercover video shot by an animal rights group showed workers stomping, dragging and beating cows inside a milking barn.
The video was shot using a hidden camera by a member of the animal rights group Mercy for Animals inside Bettencourt Dairies’ Dry Creek Dairy in Hansen.
Dairy owner Luis Bettencourt says he’s sickened by the video and has fired the workers involved. He’s since hired an additional supervisor and installed cameras in his milking barns.
Nathan Runkle with Mercy for Animals says the group hopes Kraft Foods will quit using milk from Bettencourt Dairies.
Coming from Idaho, this disgusts me even more.
My Sexy Assassin - Cooler Than The Other Side Of The Pillow
Boise do you realize that I talk about you every single day. Without fail.
It’s only been 2 months since I was last there and I’m already so horribly homesick.
I want to be back in your arms.
Make that 6 weeks for me.
And it is time for a new chapter in my life. I made the decision tonight to move to Salt Lake City and I am leaving at 6am. I wish I had time to say goodbye to everyone, but I feel like right now is the perfect time to go and if I put it off another day or so, I will be stuck here again. Thank being said, I love you all and I am not trying to escape from anyone or anything bad, this is just what I feel is right for me.
I will be back probably on the 31st to get some more of my things, so I will be able to say goodbye to you guys then. But for now, it is time to pack.
