It’s still light out after 5 p.m.!

The main reason I took this photos was to show you that it is still light outside and it is after 5 p.m.! I think it was about 5:30 when I took this photo.  I also wanted to show that the snow is melting. This is a group of townhouses on 1400 block of First […]

Ice dam in downspout

It was really quiet this morning as I was walking, then I heard a noise. I couldn’t figure out who it could be as there was no one around. Turned out it was the cracking and falling of ice in this downspout.  I guess this would be an ice dam. Lots of people have had […]

Paul Wellstone. Shelia Wellstone focused much of her work on domestic violence, assisting survivors and […]

The Skyline is changing

The construction of a new arena at the DECC, [Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center] is taking shape. It will provide bigger and better venue for UMD’s hockey players. I hate to see the skyline change, but I suppose most are excited by this new arena. It will seat 6,000 for hockey games and up 9,500 […]

Adopt a Retired Greyhound

Do you like bumper stickers?  I like to read them, but I don’t like to stick them on my car. I saw the bumper sticker on this car that said, “Adopt A Retired Racing Greyhound 1 800-366-1672.” So I had to stop and take this photo for Carol, who has a January post Greyhounds: A […]

Procrastination

I know I can procrastinate, but I think it is time to remove the harvest pumpkin from the porch. I saw another house that still had Halloween stickers in the windows. Today is Feb. 17.
