UMD Pharmacy Students Hold A Bone Marrow Drive On Campus Tomorrow

I have been a bone marrow donor for years with the "Be The Match" registry.  I almost made a match a few years back too, but there is a series of tests they do to make sure you are a perfect match and one of our tests didn't match.  I would love the opportunity to match someone and save a life!!!

We were told that we had a pretty good chance at viewing the dancing Northern Lights in the Northland.  There were to be very active last evening into the early hours this morning. One local photographer, Tim Mlodozyniec caught the phenomenon beautifully and gave me permission to share with those that may have still been snuggling in bed.

Did We See A Sundog Near Scanlon Saturday Afternoon?

The picture doesn't do the phenomenon justice.  As we were driving southbound on I-35 to the Carlton VFW to volunteer at the monthly steak fry Saturday afternoon I saw this small rainbow-like light in the sky.  I said it was a sundog and my husband, Homie questioned me on what a sundog is.

Is It More Expensive To Fix Aluminum Body On New Ford F-150′s? [VIDEO]

One of the most exciting things to happen in the automotive industry is the introduction of the aluminum body from Ford.  It's lighter, less likely to dent (because lighter means they can make it thicker), and also more costly.  Edmunds.com did a great video on what happens if you need body work done to an aluminum truck.  Would it be more expensive?

Clouds Clear For A Beautiful Partial Solar Eclipse in the Twin Ports

We got lucky today as the clouds cleared out just in time for the partial Solar Eclipse.  Not having our special viewing glasses, we took turns with a welder mask to view it.   I also tried the pin hole in a sheet of paper trick as well.

Why Do The Leaves Of Our Trees Change Color In The Fall?

I was just talking to a friend about the fact that it seems like we haven't had the brilliant fall colored leaves that we're use to.  Some areas have them, but some places that I've enjoyed in previous years still haven't made the change.  I thought it was weird and wondered why.  I also realized (and I may have learned this in school YEARS ago), but I  don't remember why the leaves actually change colors, so I did a little research.

Believe In Aliens? Duluth Public Library Hosts Program On UFOs In Minnesota

I'm particularly interested in this program because I just watched the movie "Fire In The Sky".  It's about five guys that are logging deep in the woods.  As they are driving home they see a brilliant light in the sky and one of them is abducted, although the small town they're from doesn't believe them.  The abducted is returned to the town and it shows the emotion and turmoil they all go through.  It's supposedly a true story.  It made me want to learn more.

Have You Been Told You Look Just Like Someone Else and are Doppelgangers Real? [VIDEO]

I'm sure in your life you've been told you look just like someone else, or perhaps you've seen a stranger who you thought looked just like someone in your life.  I remember at least twice where a stranger walked up to me and said I looked just like someone else they knew.  The common term is doppelganger, but can they possibly be real?  Can there be someone out there that looks exactly like you?

Did You Know You Need an Agate Picking Permit in Carlton County?

As a child growing up in Wrenshall I did a lot of agate picking.  My parents started me out at the young age of three, agate picking in the various gravel pits in our area.  I'm not sure if a permit was needed then, but as I was checking out the Carlton County Transportation website, I came across the information I felt I should share with other "rock hounds".
