A Steam Mop Is My Latest Favorite Gadget, It Works!
Between my kitchen that is a laminate looking wood but still warps when it gets wet and my camper floor that is filthy, I would go through half a bottle of 409 and two whole rolls of paper toweling. I was at a lost and would procrastinate because it was a knee and back breaker.  Now I have clea…
Fireball In Cupcakes Can Be A Reality
If you haven't had Fireball, you've probably heard of it.  It's a type of whisky that tastes like red hot cinnamon candy and warms you up as it's going down.  For those that are already fans, how would you like to combine two delicious flavors?  Fireball and cake?  Yup, Fireball Cupakes!!! I get rec…
This Is Why You Buy Meat You Can See Through The Wrapper
Preface to this blog.  I have bought this type of pre-packaged hamburger that you buy  blindly because you can't see the product inside and it's been fine.  However, this time I was surprised to see what can only be described as a large amount of coagulated fat.  Last t…

Weigh In On Duluth's Proposed Transportation Tax
I am the thrilled that Northland roads are on the forefront of people's minds, most need help.  Mayor Larson introduced a "Street Improvement Program" which would tax residents as well as visitors to our city.  It requires a referendum to pass on November 7.  Th…
Why Is It Called A Moscow Mule And Served In A Copper Cup?
Recently I was out with co-workers and Dani, our receptionist and the gal you see when you pick up prizes at B105, ordered a Moscow Mule.  I asked what the drink was made out of and why they serve it in a copper cup.  She was able to answer one of those questions, the other spurred a table…
Reusable VS Plastic Bags, Would You Pay A Bag Fee?
If you think that paying a fee for the bag you put your purchases in would never happen (after all, they want you to shop in their store, right?), think again.  In Minneapolis they are voting on whether businesses should start charging for bags.  This is why and here are my reasons I have …
Earn Cash With An Idea To Keep Asian Carp Out Of The Great Lakes
We were recently kayaking on the St. Louis River when I thought about an Asian Carp coming out of the water and slapping me in the face, ewwwww!  I was assured that wouldn't happen, at least yet.  They haven't made their way up this far, but they're being proactive to make s…
Liver With Soy Sauce (For Those That Don’t Like Liver)
First off, I am NOT a fan. Never have been, but my mom felt she needed to serve liver and would try to make it different ways to make it taste better. Maybe it was the consistency of the meat, I don’t know. I remember being at Old Country Buffet years ago and piling on a huge spoonful of stuffing on…
Is It Bologna Or Baloney?
Call me simple (or cheap), but I’ve been a fan of baloney since I was kid, always Oscar Mayer. At age 7, I was left alone all summer while my mom was at work and a baloney sandwich was a staple in my world. I used it as hors d'oeuvre when I was about 10 and had my first Tup…
Another First For Me, Tripping While On A Training Run
I don't get to run in the mornings very often because I'm on the B105 Morning Show, so while on vacation I decided to take advantage of it.  We parked at Bayfront Festival park on a warm sunny day.  I felt good, was relaxed and enjoying the beauty of Lake Superior when out of the…

Who Remembers Knox Blox, Did You Eat Them As A Kid?
Did you get Knox Blox when you were young?  It actually made eating jello tolerable and fun.  You mixed Knox unflavored gelatin with a jello flavor of your choice and it hardened in a 9X13 pan.  That allowed you to cut it into squares that you could pick up with your fingers (probably…
