Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

Have you ever thought how one gets invited to that festivity?  It's a lottery system to get free tickets (and of course, you'll have to get you and your family there).  If you're interested, here's how!

UPDATE: If Weather Conditions Hold, Lake Superior Ice Caves Near Apostle Islands Could Open For The Weekend

Did you get to see the ice caves last year?  I  regret I couldn't find the time to travel to Bayfield and see the amazing Wisconsin Ice Caves.  Original predictions looked good that we may get the chance to visit them again this year.  The verdict has wavered since then, but as of yesterday are once again looking somewhat favorable.
