Waiting in line at Last Place on Earth

Waiting in line at Last Place on Earth

A fair amount of people start waiting in line at “Last Place on Earth” before it opens. They are waiting to purchase “bath salts” which they use to get high. I need someone else to fill me in here, even though I ‘ve read stories about it, I’m not sure exactly how you take bath salts. I think you smoke them. They are a stimulant, something closer to cocaine or meth. This is the new rush hour in downtown Duluth…even on a Sunday, there is a rush hour.

The college offers more than 80 technical majors and programs for transfer, with many provided online including dialysis patient care, accounting, business administration and an Associate in Arts transfer degree.

Hmmmmm….someone has some optimism. (Planting in March.) I thought we weren’t safe from a freeze until after Mother’s Day, which is  May 13 this year.

Where is the horizon?

Where's the horizon?

We’ve had unseasonably warm weather and when we look at the lake we can’t tell where it ends and the sky begins. I debated between posting this and a photo of Vintage Duluth with their manikins dress in green clothing.
