Life on the prairie in Post Falls Idaho - 10/30/11 06:46 PM
Well here on the prairie today, in Post Falls, it is rainy, but the temperature is a pleasant 50 degrees Yesterday we did the final clean-up in the garden; getting the last of the corn stalks out. The pheasants and the quail have lost another of their favorite hiding places. Rumor has it that snow might be here by this coming weekend. We are at about 2200 feet elevation here in North Idaho, so if the foothills are gettiing snow there is a good chance that the prairie will see some, but maybe only flurries. I will keep you posted and if we (0 comments)

FRONTIER ICE ARENA, here in Coeur d'Alene, is moving forward toward their goal of opening in late November.

The access is all landscaped and grass seed has been blown in. The parking area is paved and lines for parking are all there including Handicapped spots.
The paving has also started over by the front doors to the ice arena.I would guess with our nice weather (that we are (0 comments)

From the Prairie here in Post Falls idaho - 10/23/11 08:36 PM
I had the opportunity to spend the day with two of my grandsons. They came over to help clean up the garden beds for winter. They are 14 and 11 years old. I have to tell you that they were real troopers! The day started with serious rain here on the prairie in Post falls. The boys and I waited for the rain to stop and when it didn't; we went out to work anyway to clean up the garden beds (we have 2 gardens). Three truck loads later, by now it was mid afternoon and we were done for the day! (1 comments)

Post Falls Chamber Chili cook-off was last night and what a great event. There were lots of chilies and they were all great. My personal favorite was a chili made with Dr Pepper and pineapple. The flavors were well blended and balanced. Where can you get a Root Beer Float for only $1? Well you could last night from the Post Fall High School cheerleaders. This was a fundraiser for a very avtice group of young people. The Post Falls Food Bank was there last night with a very tasty Baja soup that was very good. They are having a "Big (0 comments)
Realtor Safety at Center Target Sports in Post Falls Idaho - 10/20/11 04:24 PM
Safety should be on all our minds especially, as the days are getting shorter and we are in parking lots in the dark a lot more now. I took a class at Center Target that was aimed at Realtor Safety. Now I am not saying that you need to be armed with a real live gun, but we do need to be aware of our surroundings, as we go out to our cars or even as we walk our pets in our own neighborhoods. The most important thing we need to do is be observant and if something does't seen right, (0 comments)

KYRO Ice Arena located in North Idaho in the Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls area is shooting for a late November opening. The new name for the ice arena will be Frontier Ice Arena and it will be a NHL size rink, have 5 locker rooms, stadium seating, and a heated lobby with viewing to the ice rink. KYRO has been closed since December of 2008 after over 90 inches of snow on the roof caused the roof to collapse. This has made it hard for all of our ice skakers as they have had to drive to the Spokane area to (2 comments)
One of the great things about living in North Idaho is the fact that we have four distinct seasons and we are now in a beautiful fall season. We are expecting our first hard frost tonight or tomorrow night and it will be sad to see our lovely flowers, that we have had all summer and fall, go away. Of course we have Thanksgiving and Christmas to look forward to; with the snow covering the fall colors (which are great this year).
The garden did pretty well in spite of our cool evenings and I will be (2 comments)

"Made in America" - 10/14/11 12:41 PM
I wrote about KTEC the other day when they had their ground breaking, and I am thinking that not enough people understand the value of such a facility in our community. This will allow training for so many of of our young people in skills that they can take to higher level in their lifetime. A hands on skill does not say that a person cannot or does not need to go on to higher learning. KTEC will give them the means to get there. We all want to see more "Made in America" and it will start right here as (0 comments)

One of our local restaurants, Applebee’s, is helping out with fundraising for the Cardinals women’s basketball team from North Idaho College. The restaurant generously lets the basketball team come in and serve breakfast to their supporters and the team gets to keep roughly 75% of the proceeds collected. What a great community sponsor! Julia, who plays center and is from Helsinki Finland, is over here on a sports scholarship. She is in the picture with two of my grandsons and they are obviously enjoying themselves! In North Idaho we are blessed to be part of such a caring community. (0 comments)
