Heads up if you were looking for something fun and outdoors to do with the family tonight: The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation division will not be opening the Bayfront Family Center today for recreational activities due to the extremely cold temperatures and below zero wind chill.
There's no shortage of fun in the winter - especially if you have a pair of ice skates! Just as you would expect in a city that fully-embraces the snow and the cold, ice skating opportunities abound within the Twin Ports.
Phil Thompson grew up in Minnesota and knows the talent that is here. 6 years ago he started a collection cd called Holiday Lights. Sort of a soundtrack for the light display at the Capital. Mostly a showcase for Minnesota music, and has boasted some big artists.
Gary Wright has a new book out called Dream Weaver, which he was allowed to write himself. He says he was happy they let him write it because then he could put things in his own words, and write the way he talks.
'Tis the season for Christmas parties - especially those geared towards kids and families. A special "holiday edition" of the Play Gym free social program for parents and their preschoolers will be held Wednesday, December 17 at the Duluth Heights Community Center.
I was perhaps one of the few people who did not make it out to the Apostle Island Ice Caves last winter. Although I had planned on an excursion, a visit didn't pan out for me. However, record numbers of people took advantage of the extra-cold temperatures last winter that helped create an ideal situation for the sight-seeing - something that had not been possible for almost five years!
I was going through some of my old videos and interviews and realized I had some great footage of HOME FREE. They came in the studio in support of a concert they were giving, and this was long before they won the sing off on national tv.

This week Farley's Family Restaurant made a Philly Cheese Steak and an Italian Burger, both very good, but we got on the subject of Christmas memories and Christmas Desserts. We would love to hear your dessert memories or even better, recipes.
On KOOL 101.7 we are featuring a song by Hallbjorn that is called "Sonja Snow Dog Loves the Snow". A kind of quirky, folky tune that is nonetheless fun to listen to and fits with all the Christmas Music featured on the station.
