Kivi Brothers Trucking Has A Job Opening That Isn’t OTR

During the Solid Gold Saturday morning show I often get requests from my OTR drivers for CW McCall's Convoy, Red Sovine's Teddy Bear and Dave Dudley's Six Days On The Road.  I appreciate the requests and that you share a piece of your weekend with me. So, when I saw that Kivi Brothers Trucking had an opening I thought of you, but this job doesn't require travel.  Interested?

My Review Of The New OMC Smokehouse Restaurant In Duluth

To be honest, I've actually been to the OMC Smokehouse at 1909 West Superior St.
Duluth twice.  But I forgot to take pictures my first time so I made sure to do so this time.  They serve smoked meats, craft beer and sides all done very uniquely.  Here's my review.

Spirit Airline Voted Least Favorite In The US, I Agree Here’s Why

Recently Spirit Airline came out on the bottom of a favorite airline list. I may have been in the group of people that say “who”, if I hadn’t experienced it for myself and I totally agree. We had heard of the inexpensive airline from a friend who used their services, but keep in mind that he was traveling alone and was only gone for a weekend so he had one small suitcase that he carried on. By the way, the picture above is how teeny tiny their fold down tables are, I couldn't even fit my computer on it.  Here’s my story.

Arby’s Gyros Are A Disappointment, Probably My Own Fault For Not Paying Attention

My family loves gyros. We’ve driven past the Arby’s sign in West Duluth and seen the 2 gyros for $6 offer on the sign and thought we’d finally give it a try. Especially after seeing their hilarious ad on TV several times. We went through the drive through and when we got home, we were surprised at what we had. Apparently, I don’t pay attention to the ads on TV, nor did I “get it” when my husband placed our order.

What Happens Behind The Gates Of Upper Lakes Foods In Cloquet? [VIDEO]

Upper Lakes Foods in Cloquet is celebrating their 50th anniversary of business and after meeting with the family and getting a tour of the facility I wondered how many people know the thought that actually goes into what they do to ensure the utmost freshest and timely delivery of food. It’s interesting to find out the timelines they have when food arrives and is stored to when it is placed on the truck for delivery. Pallets as high as the eye can see filled with product; freezers, refrigerators as big as whole rooms and bags of carrots and fresh produce that are incredibly huge.
