I don't know if your town goes nuts on St. Patty's Day, but St. Paul does.  It seems all the Scandinavians who are supposed to reside here, become Irish overnight.  I don't know if the leprechauns shake faerie dust on everyone as they sleep at night or what, but something happens to make a town o...

I don't know how architects learn to be architects or if it just comes naturally, but a tour of St. Paul's City Hall/Ramsey County Court House building is a real contrast to the State Capitol building I toured last.  Both buildings are opulent with precious stone, wood, and metal used profusely t...

Being a die-hard Minnesotan since I was in 5th grade, one would assume I'd been to the State Capitol building.  Nope, haven't been there.  In an attempt to remedy my lack of exposure to my new St. Paul home, there's going to be a building tour in my life for the next several months.  It's my inte...

There's a new carnival in town and I liked the idea of a virtual tour of MY town!  Carnivals are not my thing.  It's probably because losing is not fun, but my honey and I are new residents of St. Paul (only 29 months now) and weekly say to one another, "Have I told you lately how much I like St....

Minnesotans must be closet party-ers because the Minne-apple is not the first place people think of when they think of revelry and fun.  Oooooooh, it's cold up there.  What do you do in the winter?  Watch TV?  Nope, that's not it at all!  We have fun outside!St. Paul is in the midst of its Winter...

St. Paul like every other city has neighborhoods.  Being a St. Paul resident in my very core, albeit a new physical resident, I’m learning about the city like any other new resident.  I’ve always known about the houses, but not always about the city itself! Thomas-Dale is the official name for t...

         When you're done with being a gas station, what better thing to do than convert the station to a restaurant?  That's what Andy's Garage did and had a thriving business since opening in 2000.  This is the St. Paul location at Fairview and University Ave. W.  Well, this WAS the St. Paul lo...

 Even though all this year's facts aren't in yet for the 13 county area of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, I find the comparison of real estate sales from 2000 which was the very beginning of our feeding frenzy to 2006 to be interestiing.  The media and the associations are hyping that our...

Now this is a marketing challenge!  The picture is big, but it's the only way to get the full impact of what this St. Paul, Minnesota, house looked like when it went on the market in December, 1998.  After 72 days it had not sold and went off the market.   Every inch of siding is covered with old...
