  • Never underestimate the power of being determined. It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you make up your mind you’re GOING TO DO IT.

    I don’t care if I’m a Minnesotan, I’m going to complain about the weather: “Ahem. It’s cold.”
    . . . . .
    On a related note, I had relatives from a warmer climate visit once during this sort of weather.
    The one thing that really got to them even more than the cold, the one thing about Minnesotans that just didn’t compute in their heads — how we can leave our cars running out in the parking lot while we’re inside shopping.

    Did it ever strike you as odd that when Mickey Mouse was shown interacting with an actual human being, like Walt Disney or the conductor in Fantasia, that he’s about three feet tall?
    I don’t know what Mickey is, but he ain’t a mouse.

    Almost every house and business in Redwood Falls has a water softener tucked away somewhere.
    The new city water treatment facility has reduced the need for water softeners, but that got me thinking:
    Are there any places where everyone has water hardeners adding more minerals to the tap water?

    For a few years when I was a kid, my family lived in a house right next to a big, square, cinderblock clothing store.
    I liked to hit tennis balls against the store’s wall, and probably knocked at least a dozen of them up onto the flat roof, where I never saw them again.
    What is the life-span of a tennis ball? Are they still up there?

    They say if you want to eat sausage, you should never watch how it’s made.
    I’m sure that applies to a lot of other things, too. Can you think of a few?

    I guess it depends on what’s at stake, huh?

    I used to be intimidated by cooking. It seemed to be a mysterious combination of art and science I just didn’t get.
    Page 2 of 2 - Then one day I had an epiphany: cooking is just mixing things together and heating them up. Even I can do that much!
