Summer is barely in full swing and the stores are talking back to school. It is like Christmas...Some stores are already getting supplies in for that. It just seems we are pushing the envelope a bit.  I no spring chicken and would love to enjoy the seasons as they come. But...that is today's soci...

That is all we have heard from the weather people the last week. Today, we set a Record cold HIGH Temp. I know you are thinking SNOW. No, it was a nice 65 degrees today.  Just a bit of relief from the humid weather we have had. So, if you were thinking of traveling to Minnesota but now are having...

A friend had hired a guy to cut down some large trees close to a building. He was some fly-by-night operator. One fo the trees he cut down fell the wrong way and destroyed the building. The tree should have been roped for safety. The guy said he needed some additional tools to get the tree off th...

One of the big issues with a drought is that we forget about our trees. Yes, if you planted within a couple of years you may be out there with the hose. That is great, but even larger trees may need a drink also. I lost a very nice Maple Tree last year during the drought.  I was taking care of th...

Have you noticed old sayings and advice are just as valid today as they were back in the year. Here are a few from Will Rogers... 1)Never slap a man who is chewing tobacco. 2)Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.   (Learned that one the hard way) 3)Never miss a good chance to shut up. 4) Always dri...

WE went into last winter in a severe drought. People were wondering what the spring would bring for the farmers.  Well, it was very very wet.  Many thousands of acres of crops didn't get planted, but we were now out of the drought. Now, we are drying out again.  The crops are now close to where t...

I have always said I had a fear of this happening in a wide scale. Well, it has happened on a small scale.   I broke my new Smart phone. (Not very smart)  This happened early Sunday and I was out of town. I stopped in and got a replacement and will have it in 2 days.  2 DAYS!!!! I am lost for now...

With the late spring finally here, it is time to get the 'Home' work caught up. My wife and I were sorta running around doing things but not really making any headway. Finally we stopped. We made a list and ranked it as to the importance. Now, we are still working as hard but we are seeing the re...

With several new clients ready to go I am searching for acceptable properties in a wider area.  Why? Because, the more I look the less there is.  What was there yesterday is now in Pending today. Good news!  Right?   Yes in some ways, but I see a market that will be full of multiple offers and ne...

Talking with a friend, his daughter will have $45,000 in student loans this year when she graduates.  He was complaining about the high cost and I will say it does cost a lot. But, what he doesn't know is that his daughter has gone to spring break every year and used loan money to pay for it.  Th...

Yes at least in Minnesota, hospitalizations are down dramatically. Now, that being said, it doesn't mean we should be stupid and abandon all the safety practices we have put in place. There are a lot of viruses and other problems that good hygiene can help prevent, so when you local media station...

The best deal you get on a home this year may be RIGHT NOW! Some reports of interest creeping higher as seeping in.  There are fewer homes on the market and that means higher prices.  Sales will be brisk in the spring and multiple offers will be common. The foreclosure rates are much lower so occ...

Talking with my Post Master yesterday, he said that there is a lot of time to get Santa a letter with what you may want for Christmas. Even if you know of someone who is in need, the letters will get to where they need to be, BUT, don't wait to much longer for Santa's days are running short. For ...

It is the end of another weekend and time for a chuckle or two.  Hope everyone has a great week! A Sunday school teacher was telling her young class a story about the good samaritan... Class, what would you do if you came upon a person hurt and bleeding on the side of the road.   There was a hush...

I was talking with a friend that volunteers at the local food bank. He was telling me that they are always in need, but are way behind for this time of the year and the major holidays are coming up. Food is always welcome, but it is the other things that are also needed.  Soaps, hand and laundry ...

I was in a local Bait Store this past weekend and met an older gentleman.  we struck up some small talk. (Well I did most of it.) Where you fishing today?  (Probing for some tips I was) "Sand." was his one word answer. There are several lakes around here, do you fish any of them? "Nope."  (Hmmm, ...

I stopped by a Department of Natural Resources fish trap today.  This has not been used in many years. It was set up to catch the hundreds to thousands of carp trying to get into a local fishing lake.  I watched many times as they netted out the carp because occasionally there would be a nice nor...

It is a beautiful morning. (at least in my back yard) The sun is out, the birds are singing and I have yet to hear a bad word. Granted, the day is early, but I am starting with a good attitude and hopefully good fortune will at least follow me if not catch up to me. I am going to take a minute to...
