We officially have a teenager. Our elder daughter, Anna, recently turned 13. Being the smart young lady she is, she strategically planned her friend party—a sleepover campout in our backyard—during the week her little sister, Ellen, was at camp. It was the first of my kids’ birthday celebrations I...
Minnesota is home to 14,000 lakes, 12,000 loons, 135,000 seasonal lake cabins and 3.9 million newspaper readers. Really? Really. Every month, 86% of Minnesota adults read newspapers’ print and online issues, according to a new Minnesota Market Study conducted by Coda Ventures. The study measures...
It’s the quietest week of the year—at least, at my house. Our 10-year-old Ellen is off having the time of her life at summer camp. She looks forward to the week-long adventure all year. Not 10 minutes after I picked her up from Camp Omega last year, she spouted: “Mom, it’s the BEST place ever. I...
Sports fans or alumni of Ohio State University likely heard in the last week that the university has been successful in trademarking “The” when referring to the college.

What about them? They are interesting, at least at the time you read them. And maybe even down the road when you bring up some of this useless information just for conversation sake. I was rummaging through a book called The Best of Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader and pulled out many facts which mean...
Tuesday was the first official day of summer and it was a warm day, although not as warm and humid as the previous two days. One thing we can count on with the weather in Minnesota is that it can go from extremely cold days in the winter to extremely warm and, at times, humid days in the summer....
After two years of planning (and saving), we did it. My family of four started summer break by rafting through the Grand Canyon. It was awesome. The wild Colorado River provided us days of rapids, laughter, excitement, physical challenges, and unforgettable family time. After sleeping under the...
To cap off the school year, my daughter Ellen’s fourth grade class created a living wax museum of great leaders. Out of the list of dozens of names, my little redhead chose Lucille Ball. Why did she chose Lucille Ball? Because she was a redhead. (You’ve gotta love 10-year-old logic.) Things started...
