Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

Which Northland Church or Organization Makes The Best Pasty?

It's the time of the year when churches and organizations start cranking out their fundraiser pasties.  Growing up, I remember what a big deal it was with the church ladies putting their special recipes into their meat pies.  I recently was having an argument with a friend about who's church's pasty tastes better?  Well now we have to open it up and see what the Northland has to say.  Who's got the best pasty?

Mama Cozzi’s Frozen Pizza From ALDI Review

I've blogged about ALDI before and what a great deal it is.  We've come to do most of our grocery shopping there now.  For the most part it hasn't been hard for us to switch to the "off brand" items, but I've been pretty hesitant to give up my name brand frozen pizzas.  How would the Mama Cozzi's pizza taste?  It was dirt cheap so we had to try it.

Subway’s Brisket Melt With Smoky Hickory Sauce Review

Subway is offering a new sandwich, the brisket melt with Smoky Hickory Sauce.  Would this sandwich giant be able to pull of a good tasting brisket sandwich?  Brisket is a terribly complicated thing to pull off.  It's got to be slow cooked to make it tender.  Would this sandwich be tender?

A Sign Of The Times, My Third Grader Has Never Heard of a Phone Book

I just returned to our house after picking the kids up from school and daycare and noticed the guy was going around the block handing out the new phone book.   "New phone book is here!" I said, like the line from Steve Martin's "The Jerk."  My 3rd grader, Zach, asked perplexed, "What's a Phone Book?"  Is it a book that you can make calls on, like a tablet or something?  WOW.

Do You Remember The Palace Theater In Superior? Video Shows How It Was Before It Was Demolished [VIDEO]

The Palace Theater opened in Superior Wisconsin back in 1917.  It operated as a theater until 1982, when it was then used as a church.  Not long later it became vacant.  The city took possession of it, and it ultimately was demolished in 2006.  This video tour was taken before it was demolished, and shows what the Palace Theater had become.
