  1. Hi Betsy,
    My name is Alison and I’ve read your blog for a year or more (I don’t think I’ve ever commented, though, so sorry!), and I will be driving through Iowa to Nebraska this coming Saturday. I currently live in Findlay, Ohio, and am moving to Salt Lake City. I am anticipating my boyfriend and I will want dinner somewhere between Iowa City and Des Moines and I was wondering if you could suggest somewhere in either of those cities or somewhere along the way. We’d like it to be casual, not expensive and to have something vegetarian on the menu other than a veggie burger if possible. Thank you for your help and if you want to email me directly, here’s my email: alison.kemp@gmail.com.

      Hi Alison,
      Thanks for reading my blog. I’d be glad to suggest some restaurants. There are so many in Iowa City and Des Moines that might help if you can tell me a little more about your preferences. Then I’ll blog on it! I gather you want casual, inexpensive, interesting vegetarian entrees. Beyond that any other things you like – ethnic? bbq?
      Cheers, betsy

    Hi,

    My name is Morgan Parker.

    Our company has a few websites similar to betsyrubiner.wordpress.com (same page rank, similar content quality and age).

    Would you be interested in exchanging links with our websites? (Don’t worry, I checked and we are not competing for the same keywords.)

    Let me know, and I will send you a list of our sites. Also, if you have any other websites, send them as well since I have more than one site I can offer you.

    Thanks in advance,

    Morgan Parker

    Sounds Fun!
