minot: No boredom in sight for Wednesday July 11th in Minot ND - 07/10/18 09:12 AM

Join us for our Summer Block Party! This event will be held in the parking lot of The Market on 4th! We will have Food, Vendors and a Make & Take Workshop going on from 5pm to 8pm! Grab your friends and family and stop by for a night filled with fun! We will be announcing our vendors soon so stay tuned..
Family Pool Night sounds good with the temps in the upper 80's and 90's. I won't be there... don't want to hear "Mommy, look a beached whale".
Looking at the www.VisitMinot.org site Chalk it up sounds fun: Minot Family YMCA 3515 16th St … (13 comments)

minot: Back to a busy events calendar in Minot Tuesday 07/10/2018 - 07/09/18 01:16 PM
Let me clarify, dine to donate is not an event for boosting beavers (the animal) but Minot State University's Beavers. I'm sure I didn't need to clarify that but just in case.
I may attend the Ward Co. Historical Society Meeting as I will be seeing the president earlier in the day for my next interview on the radio broadcast of Minot Real Estate Today.
For new parents I encourage you to take advantage of the FREE car seat check at Ryan Honda. I know we did and it was well worth it.
Not on the list above but recommend by myself would be:

minot: Come See Tivoli Custom Homes Model Home - 07/09/18 08:31 AM

My new Model Home office Monday through Friday is at 9 11th Ave NE in Minot.
This is one of four model homes built or being built by Tivoli Custom Homes in Minot.
In more than 30 years of home building Tivoli homes has never built two of the same homes... thus they are truly Tivoli Custom Homes.

minot: I Skipped Sunday, here is Monday in Minot 07/09/2018 - 07/08/18 12:54 PM

I skipped Sunday because there was nothing on the list that interested me except for the Art's In The Park concert.
I won't lie... the pickens look pretty slim to me on the right as well but one item that isn't on the list I really like. ICan Bike Camp: 
Minot Family YMCA 3515 16th St SW, Minot, North Dakota 58701 Lose the training wheels! You can volunteer to help individuals with special needs learn how to ride a bike. Approximately 80% of the individuals who participate in our iCan Bike programs ride a two-wheel bicycle independently by the end of our five-day … (0 comments)

07/07/2018
This week there were 6 homes sold (closed) in this very narrow category of stick built, single family homes located in the City limits of Minot. A look at the Red chart below shows there were 19 closings overall to include all properties in our MLS. Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market was 65 compared to last weeks 107 days. Over all homes much faster and for more money per square foot this week.
 
The chart above is the total MLS activity for the week. This includes ALL types of properties as well as all cities … (2 comments)

minot: Sweltering Saturday, how do I stay cool in Minot ND 07/07/2018 - 07/06/18 06:17 PM

With the idea of staying cool let me suggest you listen to Friday's radio broadcast which I posted in podcast form HERE .
Aside from spending a day (which you easily could) at North Hill Bowl where the temp is always 70 degrees I'm probably going to spend the earliest part of the morning in the park. However temps are projected to jump into the upper 90's very early on Saturday.
As a coffee fan I'm eager to check out the grand opening of With Room Coffee. I'd also like an explanation of the strange name. Located at 400 E Central Ave.
If it wasn't going to … (12 comments)

minot: North Hill Bowl has been around so long... did they build Minot around it? - 07/06/18 02:21 PM

Today's broadcast of Minot Real Estate Today is an interview with Rory Selk, Pro Shop Manager of Minot's North Hill Bowl. Currently there are 3 generations of the Selk family working at North Hill Bowl on a daily bases and Rory is training up the 4th. North Hill Bowl is another great reason to say "there is ALWAYS something to do in Minot ND".
Minot Real Estate Today is broadcast over the air every Friday by two minot radio stations. You can listen in live on 106.9 FM at 12:10 (over the lunch hour) and on 1320 AM at 4:45 PM. Of … (8 comments)

If the 4th of July just got your motor running you will be glad to see a full schedule of events for the 5th!
I'm going to make it another day in the Park. I can't tell you anything about the Jensen Sisters or visual artist Kim Whittemore right now but I will after the concert.
The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs are back in town after 5 days on the road. Good chance you will catch me there as well.
I'm also looking forward to seeing the art of Dr. Andrea Donovan at Artspace. Andrea has a ph.D. in European and Art History and … (4 comments)

minot: On the 4th I will be in Roosevelt Park - 07/03/18 06:48 AM

It kicks off at 9:30 AM and runs till 11:59 PM. There is to much to this event for me to tell you about here so check it out at VisitMinot.org .
There is a pretty good chance I'll go eat pancakes at the Flag Raising Ceremony offered by the Mormons.

minot: Minot Events Today and Tuesday July 03/2018 - 07/02/18 06:09 AM

I apologize for getting a day behind on posting Minot's events. No excuses, I just got caught up in family things and forgot to post yesterday.
I sure did enjoy the Minot City Band yesterday at Oak Park. It was well attended. I was a little disappointed that the scheduled visual artist had not shown up by the time we left the scene.
I hate to admit it but there is actually nothing on today's or tomorrows schedule that will probably get me out of my house or out of my yard BUT like most people I think I'll be preparing for the … (14 comments)

minot: BIG Bloom, Little Flower - 07/01/18 05:36 PM

Last night on my walk I shared with you some beautiful little flowers that were on a larger plant. The majority consensus on that one was that A. of Ron and Alexandra Seigel identified it as of the bleeding heart variety.
On tonight's walk I spotted the opposite. A bloom about the size of a hand on a fairly little plant. I know this is a flower because it's in one of the City flowerbeds in Roosevelt Park. Isn't it pretty?

Available Condos & Town homes in Minot ND.

minot: Flower or Weed? Help me out. - 06/30/18 07:38 PM

These petite blooms pack a lot of color. They certainly must beacon suitors to pollinate them.
The leaves of the shrub that bares them are similar to a lilac but I'm not so sure they aren't a weed as this mess is growing in a very unkempt area of a unkempt yard.

minot: Welcome July in with these Events in Minot 07/01/2018 - 06/30/18 05:16 PM

You can't beat breakfast with the Women of the Moose lodge.
As you know I will be at the Arts in the Park concert to hear The Minot City Band and to view the art of Katie Abrahamson.

minot: Meet the GM of the HUGELY Successful Sabre Dogs - 06/29/18 08:10 AM
The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs are a tremendous asset to Minot ND. I knew we were in for something good when it was announced that a new college league and team was coming to Minot but I had no idea it would be this big. I've seen it with every home game they play being I literally live across the street from the stadium (Corbett Field). Can you believe they are drawing up to 1,000 people a game now! If you listen to this interview with Darrell Handlesman's enthusiasm you won't be surprised at how well they are doing. Listen in … (8 comments)

minot: Just In Case you have not made plans for Friday June 29th - 06/28/18 06:40 AM
Here is What's Up!
Ok, I'm wishing I had grandchildren so I could go to the Ward Co Library and play with the Playdough. Come and enjoy playdough at the Ward County Public Library! Playdough and fun toys will be set up for the kids. A parent or guardian must be present the entire time. For more information, please contact the library at 701-852-5388.
I'm not familiar with the Mask Theater but this sounds interesting: Imagine taking a seat in a theatre that is defined by a circle of trees. Looking up at the blue sky as you await the start of the show. An … (4 comments)

minot: Another Action Packed Thursday 06/28/2018 in Minot ND - 06/27/18 01:28 PM

It's not free and it's adults only BUT you will most likely find me at Bacon and Brew being I like both and it's less than 1,000 feet from my front door.
Arts in the Park is always a good time. Thursdays musical artists are The Tonedevil Brothers and the visual artist Candice Brekke with the theme "Eye Candy".
As you can see there are several Arts and Theater events going on. I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.
One Ladies Only event not listed that you may see my wife at is Bible Journaling. You can find out more … (6 comments)

minot: Whats Up? Tuesday 06/26/2018 in Minot ND - 06/25/18 07:09 AM

As you can see from the list to the left there is never a shortage of things for kids of all ages.
Let me plug "Smart Start" at the library. I can not emphasis enough what an important force the Minot Public Library was in my kids development, their love of reading, education, and adventure. Smart Start is for children ages 2 to 5 years old. If you want your child to be an "Achiever" and a success in school give them a smart start.
Pet Rocks??? 40 years later this is still a "thing"??? You might also ask that about Tie Dying but as the parent … (8 comments)
