Chief Warrant Officer Jason Johansen Wishes His Hometown Of Duluth Happy Holidays [AUDIO]

I'm almost certain that everyone in the Northland either has a family member or knows of someone who serves in one of our Armed Forces.  The holidays are always a tough time for those families when they're loved one is deployed.  Years ago the only correspondence was a written letter that took a very long time to reach it's destination.  Thanks to modern technology we can now skype, facetime on our phones and send pictures and audio.  Like the holiday greeting that Chief Warrant Officer Jason Johansen has sent to the Northland.

Thanks Facebook Friends: Multiple Facebook Likes Solidifies My New Christmas Carpet

It wasn't that the carpet was well worn, it was that no matter what I did to clean it even professionally, it never truly looked clean.  It was over ten years old, it was time.  My husband Homie was VERY good at deflecting my pleas for new carpeting until I caught him in a weak moment and he agreed to "go look".

Toys of the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s Exhibit At The MN History Center Extends Hours For Final Days

Remember these cute little bugs?  The Cootie Bug game was one of my favorites as a child, along with Parcheesi, Yahtzee and Life! (not a fan of Monopoly due to my crappy math ability, although it did teach me to make change).   But, everybody had their favorites.  "Toys" is a national traveling exhibit of toys making stop at the MN History Center and has been breaking attendance records.  They will take you back to your childhood and is something you're entire family will enjoy, but time is running out!

January is National Blood Donor Month, Make Donating Your New Years Resolution

I'm the first to admit it, I don't donate blood regularly.  Quit staring at me.  Okay, fine, I never donate blood, but I plan on changing that.  January is National Blood Donor Month and the American Red Cross is reporting the need for donors, so it sounds like the perfect time.

Minnesota Snowmobile Trails Open; Enthusiasts Can Check Trail Conditions Here

I use to be so scared of our snowmobile.  I would play in the snow at age 4 while my dad and sister would ride the Scorpion around the yard, running up on the porch shaking my head NO when they would stop and ask me if I wanted to ride.  Then, I got the guts to sit on it one day and dad took off.  My first ride on a snowmobile was a surprise, but honestly, you couldn't get me off the dang thing after that.

Check Out The Lighthouse Center For Vision Loss Store For Gift Ideas

I pass by the Lighthouse Center for Vision Loss, 4505 West Superior Street (also known as Duluth LIghthouse for the Blind) every time I head to our neighborhood grocery store.  When I was a Duluth Lion's Club Member I helped to raise funds for the organization and collected used glasses on a regular basis from St. Luke's.  While I was in a public restroom yesterday I saw a poster for the Lighthouse and their low vision store.  I had no idea they had one, THIS is fabulous!

Time Saver: Wrap A Gift In Ten Seconds [VIDEO]

Ken and I have always volunteered to wrap gifts at the Salvation Army gift wrap booth at the mall.  We volunteer, we didn't say we were good at it.  In fact, we pretty much have anxiety all day, wait for days before we're scheduled.  But, this video may just change the anxiety to anticipation!

Fresh Snowfall Always Brings Out The Worst In Northland Parking Habits

I HAD to blog this because I feel like I need to defend myself.  Honestly, a fresh snowfall certainly brings out the worst in our parking habits.  Proof is in the picture above.  We've all experienced it and wondered what people were thinking (or if they even were) when they parked!
