st joseph missouri: Real Life Yard Art..That Moves......St Joseph MO 64506 - 02/24/10 02:54 PM
St Joseph Mo has had a lot of severe weather this last week with 4-5 inches of snow on Friday and another 8 inches on Sunday for a total of about 35 inches for the winter season.  This evening at dinner my husband looked out the kitchen window, spotting these beauties, Real Life Yard Art! 
 

While watching these beautiful creatures of nature, they were actually looking for something to eat, seems the only thing above snow level was the bark off the neighbors tree.

st joseph missouri: Speechless Sunday~Midwest Winter Friends - 02/01/09 12:56 PM

 Saturday it was almost 60 degrees, it really gave a false impression, that spring was here!  This is a view from my deck.  The geese are really fun to watch, early in mornings they fly away to feed in the area farm fields returning about dusk they all come flying in.  I am also thankful that our doberman keeps them in the lake.

st joseph missouri: Western Tablet Company taking a new look as ~ Lofts ~ Mitchell Park Plaza ~ St Joseph - 01/17/09 03:09 PM

 
Western Tablet Company plant has been an integral architectural part of St Joseph since the early 1900's.  Not only was this where the original BIG CHIEF TABLET was made, but also the number of jobs at the factory.  The Western Tablet Company held the original copyright of the popular writing notebook but was sold later to the Mead Corporation.  In 2004 Mead closed the St Joseph plant.
 The Big Chief Tablet was a popular writing notebook for several generations of young children.  It featured widely spaced lines, easier to write in for those learning to write.  It's prominence however, … (10 comments)

st joseph missouri: Sweet sensation ~Holiday Candy Recipe Winner~St Joseph Missouri - 12/29/08 12:09 PM
Alexis Bremer of St Joseph recently won the News Press Holiday Candy Recipe Contest according to the paper by a land side. 
Dainty and rich (and chocolate, which impressed the judges), the cherry-topped cookies tasted more like candy. 
One bite was all it took to finish it off.  You can't do that with most cookies. 
Ms. Bremer says she'll probably use her $100 grand prize to purchase the ingredients for her annual baking day.  An avid cook, she schedules a day long baking session with family and friends for the holidays.  
Congratulations to Alexis for the award winning candy/cookies.  You can find the … (10 comments)

Congratulations Mike!
