We now own a snow blower.

It took many years and many feet of snow, but I’ve finally given in and we got our first snow blower. I picked it up at Lowe’s earlier today and it barely fit into my car. But it rode in the passenger’s seat quite nicely. It turns out snow blowers are harder to find in […]

Freeway Drive Time Signs Are Amazingly Accurate

Now that I have a longer drive to work, and into the big city, I’ve found the freeway drive time signs to be very handy, and really accurate. I pass three of these on my way to work and they help me decide which path to take. Some days they say it’ll take me 9 […]

Children Are The Orgasm Of Life

Over the weekend, we were at the Mall of America when an advertisement for a new store made us take a double take. It said: “Children are the orgasm of life. Just like you did not know what an orgasm was before you had one, nature does not let you know how great children are […]

The Minnesota State Fair, a great way to exercise and get fat.

It’s that time of year again when over a million people head out to the Great Minnesota Get-Together aka the Minnesota State Fair! There are more than 450 foods available and over 60 of them come on a stick. Most of those are probably deep-fried as well. From deep-fried candy bars and cheeseburger sliders, to […]
