Surveyor tools were instrumental in the development of our state and the planning of our communities. Surveying in Iowa began in the early 1800s before it was a state. The Grout Museum District in has examples of surveyor tools used by one of Waterloo, Iowa’s earliest settlers.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
Iowa ( (listen)) is a state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River to the east and the Missouri River and Big Sioux River to the west. It is bordered by six states; Wisconsin to the northeast, Illinois to the east, Missouri to the south, Nebraska to the west, South Dakota to the northwest and Minnesota to the north.
In colonial times, Iowa was a part of French Louisiana and Spanish Louisiana; its state flag is patterned after the flag of France. After the Louisiana Purchase, people laid the foundation for an agriculture-based economy in the heart of the Corn Belt.In the latter half of the 20th century, Iowa’s agricultural economy made the transition to a diversified economy of advanced manufacturing, processing, financial services, information technology, biotechnology, and green energy production. Iowa is the 26th most extensive in land area and the 30th most populous of the 50 U.S states. Its capital and largest city by population is Des Moines. Iowa has been listed as one of the safest states in which to live. Its nickname is the Hawkeye State.

It is also “considered to be the world’s most complete man-made collection of minerals, fossils, shells, and petrifications in one place.” The total value of all the rocks and minerals which make up the Grotto is over $4,308,000. Over 100,000 people visit the Grotto each year.

Bobbi McCaughey, the mother of newborn septuplets, is no longer in hospital.
The 29-year-old was quietly released on Sunday and whisked away.
Five of the babies are listed as being in a serious condition, which is not uncommon for premature babies, and two are now listed in fair condition.
As Bobbi McCaughey prepared to leave the hospital, members of the church that is so central to her family’s life gathered to worship for the first time since what they are calling the miracle birth.
UPSOUND: (English) “Praise the Lord..praise the Lord…”
The congregation of Missionary Baptist Church sang songs of praise on Sunday in Carlisle, Iowa.
Many members of this congregation say their prayers have been answered – seven times over.
The small church is home to the McCaughey family.
The altar where Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey got married in 19-92 is now decorated with balloons celebrating the birth of their septuplets
It was here that Kenny McCaughey announced to fellow parishioners in late spring that his wife was carrying not one baby, but seven.
So it was fitting, that the church was where they gathered today to thank the one they say is responsible for what they call the miracle birth.
“So you rejoice with us over the wonderful way God has worked, providing those safe deliveries, and folks it’s exciting. I wish we could have you all walk in there and see these babies at one time. I know that’s impossible, but it’s a glorious thing to see the handiwork of God.”
SUPER CAPTION: Pastor Robert Brown, Missionary Baptist Church
Since their birth, headlines have heralded the babies, often calling them seven miracles.
And to their parents and many others they are.
The McCaughey’s have declared their unswerving faith has guided them to the day many medical experts thought couldn’t — or shouldn’t — take place.
Family members say that while God took care of the babies during the pregnancy, the church took care of more practical matters.
“I think the church has been magnificent, just tremendous. In all the help they have given – this church and one or two others helping, for months have supplied all the weekday meals for them so that … well Bobbi was unable to cook for them for a while after she was put to bed. And all that has been supplied for them.”
SUPER CAPTION: Robert Hepworth, Grandfather of Septuplets
To raise the seven children, plus their two-year-old daughter Mikayla, the McCaughey’s will need a lot of help.
And it appears that they will get it.
“We’re there, and we’re ready to join her and help her every way we can. And so is the community, and so is the church. They’re well supported.”
SUPER CAPTION: Henry Hepworth, Great Uncle of Septuplets
Bobbi McCaughey was allowed to go home from the hospital on Sunday after a month’s stay.
The babies aren’t expected to be released until January, but they continue to impress doctors with their progress.
Five of them – two boys and three girls – remain in serious condition at Blank Children’s Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.
Kenneth, the first-born, has been breathing on his own since Friday.
And the last-born of the seven – Joel Steven – who had been listed in critical condition shortly after Wednesday’s birth was taken off a ventilator on Sunday and upgraded to fair condition.
“We now have two babies who are listed in fair condition. Kenneth is still doing very well in fair condition, and I’m very very happy to report that as of a little while ago Joel has been taken off the respirator and is also listed in fair condition. The other babies continue in serious condition and are doing very well.”

During the late 1930s and early 40s, Everett Kuntz snapped hundreds of photos documenting everyday life in and around his hometown of Ridgeway, Iowa. But it wasn’t until learning he had cancer in 2002 that Kuntz finally printed the photos.
Immediately, he noticed how the images preserved a time thought to be lost forever…a time when America was still emerging from the Great Depression and rapidly approaching World War II.
Yet the photos depict a sense of hope in the people of Ridgeway — an innocence that epitomized the calm before the storm.
Kuntz’s photographs show the faces, fields and porches of small-town America, and serve as a historical record of both a bygone era and a rural Iowa that has all but disappeared.

Karen Marty day in Des Moines
Thursday, February 2, 2017, 3:21 PM. This video doesn’t pretend to be interesting, but the story behind it has some rail history in it. There was an article in the local TV news recently that a developer was going to buy an abandoned railyard currently owned by Norfolk Southern in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, and build some homes there. So I found the area on the map and we went to check it out. This is by no means a complete look at the yard; there’s a fence around most of it. This is what we could see without trespassing (much). The first clip is a big expanse of concrete that had tracks around parts of the edges, the next two clips are a couple of overgrown sidings about 100 feet west of the concrete area. Between clips you can see the Principal Building at 801 Grand to get oriented as to about where the yard is. Like I said, kind of a boring video; we just wanted to start making some kind of record of it before the bulldozers start arriving. If you want to check it out on Google Earth, it’s south of Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway and west of SW 9th Street.
