Tribute to Kitti and Ron

Kitti Asberry and her husband Jeff
Ron and Linda Wasson
For the past 3 or 4 years, I have had the privilege to serve as the secretary of the Oklahoma County Democratic Party with two outstanding examples of what the Democratic Party is all about. Kitti Asberry stepped in when our fortunes were at a low ebb. She made a personal sacrifice and put up some of her own savings to help bail out the party when we incurred a huge debt through a combination of bad luck and a good idea gone wrong. Not only did Kitti's effort save our party a major embarrassment and trouble, she also turned out fundraising efforts around to where the party gave over $13,000 to the 2006 election effort, a party record statewide.

Ron acted as the treasurer, finance officer during this time. His knowledge of the rules governing ethics regulations took a huge burden off all of us. His good humor and graciousness, often in the face of others who were graceless, was a goodsend as we worked together.

Thanks Kitti and Ron and good luck wherever life takes you.

Hey Lynn, thanks for visiting my blog. About the background music, the following are the things you need to do.

1. You need to convert the song you've selected from MP3 format to WMA. You can download the converter from this website, http://koyotstar.free.fr/indexEn.html. The WMA mustb not exceed 800KB.
2. Then, you open up an account at this website, www.iwebmusic.com, to place the song as your background music. Just follow the instructions and it will provide you with the code of which you place it in your blog's template, anywhere at the bottom.

Try it. If it doesn't work or if you have queries, give a shout. Good luck!
