Chicken Dinner Road
You may have noticed a picture of the Chicken Dinner Road sign. The story behind the name is that a Mr. and Mrs. Lamb were friends of the Idaho governor in the 1930's.  They complained about the road and wanted the governor to do something to improve it. They discussed all this over a fried chicken dinner cooked by Mrs. Lamb. Hence, the road was named Chicken Dinner Road!

Steunenberg Historic District
My morning walks are taken in this historic district. The district includes 16 homes, the College of Idaho, and a Carnegie Library. The College of Idaho has three of its buildings listed on the National Register of  Historic Places.
Steunenberg was a past Idaho governor who was murdered in 1905 in this district by a violent labor activist. As I mentioned before, I love the old homes in this area.

Service - A Source Of Joy
One source of joy is service, for when you are busy helping others, you will have less capacitiy to agonize over your own shortcomings.

You will experience greater joy in life as you eradicate adult-onset pessimism and substitute childlike optimism.
