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".
