This Video Will Make You Put That Cell Phone Down!

It's ironic that a viral video about anti-social media is being shared on social media, but that's where I found it.  My daughter had posted it on her facebook page and after watching it and reading her post "makes you think twice", I sent her a message saying "You. Me. The Lakewalk with no cell phones, are you IN?"  To my delight, she 'liked' it!  Honestly, this video showed her what I have been trying to tell her for years.

Some people use Cinco de Mayo as a great reason to drink margaritas.  I’ve always enjoyed tequila and margaritas, even on the 5th of December or June, or September.  I know that margaritas aren’t that hard to make from scratch, but I prefer to buy the mixes and just add tequila.  However, not all mixes are created equal.  Here some favorites of mine that I think you’ll enjoy too.

Forget ‘Cold Water Challenge’, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Reminds Us That Ship Canal Not Meant For Swimming, Pier Not Meant For Jumping

Perhaps you've seen the 'Cold Water Challenge For Cancer' on Facebook or other social media, encouraging people to jump into ice cold water.  Well, it's a horrible idea to jump into any ice cold water unless during an intensely organized event like the Polar Bear Plunge, which is heavily supervised by medical professionals.

MN Department Of Natural Resources Offers Tips On How To Introduce Kids To Fishing

I have a lot of memories of fishing as a little boy, and most involve my dad and sisters.  On the opener, we would all go up to Island Lake, buy minnows and candy at Verns, and try our luck off the shore.  We didn't catch a lot of fish, but whenever we caught our first one of the year, my dad would bite the head off it.

After 130 Years, Ladies Home Journal Ends It’s Monthly Publication

I remember my mom faithfully reading the Ladies Home Journal magazine when I was a child and as I grew older I would pick one up from time to time while waiting in the dentist and doctor's office.  It's sad to think that something that has been around for SO long won't be available anymore, but at least it won't be gone all together.  They do plan to publish it on a quarterly basis.
