Cathy Kates

I'm a Northland girl, born in Cloquet, raised in Wrenshall, and currently living in Duluth. I consider myself lucky to have been able to share my mornings laughing with you for the past 20 years. It's like audio Facebook. I make new friends, but I keep up with old friends too. I set three alarms to get up at 3:10am to do my job, then nap in the afternoon! I am a self-proclaimed multi-tasker (FYI: I am writing my bio, eating breakfast, holding three texting conversations and contemplating what I'll be having for lunch and what to make for dinner ALL right this second). I can't sit still. I even wear a head lamp at campfires so I can cross stitch at the same time. I love puppies, (especially my Schnauzer, Bauer), hot buttered movie theater popcorn, soup, the smell of a lake (especially if I’m fishing in it) and warm fuzzy blankets. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and yes it’s true, I get my hair cut on a weekly basis. I appreciate that you wake up with the B105 Breakfast Club, read and share my blogs and most of all, your friendship through the years! Peace, love and hugs!

My National Salad Month Tip: Go for the Flat Bags of Lettuce [Recipe]

May is National Salad Month and a great time for me to share a recipe and a tip if you purchase pre-cut, pre-washed lettuce in bags.  Some people are leery of the bags of lettuce because of the outbreak of Listeriosis.  Still, they are one of the most purchased pre-packaged food at the grocery store, which suggests we will push fear aside for convenience. Here's a tip that will help you pick the freshest package.

Cross “Ride Bike With The Mayor” Off Your Bucket List, You’re Invited To Ride Bike & Lunch With Mayor Larson

When I got my first job at the Wrenshall School pool I rode my bike to work on a SUPER hilly, loose graveled Alcohol Road (yes, that is the actual name of the road).  Not because I was "green" or I enjoyed the exercise.  It was because my mom worked and if I wanted the job it was bike or walk.  Where was National Bike to Work Day then?
