Spirit Airline Voted Least Favorite In The US, I Agree Here’s Why

Recently Spirit Airline came out on the bottom of a favorite airline list. I may have been in the group of people that say “who”, if I hadn’t experienced it for myself and I totally agree. We had heard of the inexpensive airline from a friend who used their services, but keep in mind that he was traveling alone and was only gone for a weekend so he had one small suitcase that he carried on. By the way, the picture above is how teeny tiny their fold down tables are, I couldn't even fit my computer on it.  Here’s my story.

What Happens Behind The Gates Of Upper Lakes Foods In Cloquet? [VIDEO]

Upper Lakes Foods in Cloquet is celebrating their 50th anniversary of business and after meeting with the family and getting a tour of the facility I wondered how many people know the thought that actually goes into what they do to ensure the utmost freshest and timely delivery of food. It’s interesting to find out the timelines they have when food arrives and is stored to when it is placed on the truck for delivery.
