Recycling Flowers, reBLOOM Recycles Flowers To Help Them Live Longer

Liz Carlson and Lynn Olmsted had an idea. What happens to the flowers once they are taken off the shelf, or done being shown for weddings? Why can't they have a longer life? The program relies on the kindness of one group of people to bring smiles and new life to flowers for another group of people. The business is called REBLOOM. Liz and Lynn pick up flowers donated from flower shops, weddings, funerals, or other events and repurpose them for nursing homes and hospices

Unusual Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Membership To The Manatee Club [VIDEO]

I wasn’t even quite sure what a Manatee was except when I sang about Barbara Manatee in the Veggie Tales Song. (am I the only one that remembers that).   Then, I received information about a club in Florida to save the Manatees.  They are an endangered species, and while they aren’t the most gorgeous animal, they do have the cutest tuft of whiskers.  If you're looking for an unusual Valentine's Day gift, how about a Manatee Club Membership

Local Third Graders Address The Issue Of Seat Belts On School Buses

When I was a child seat belts, car seats or restraints for a child in a moving vehicle were nonexistent. I remember standing between my parents on the bench seat of the gas guzzling Chrysler as a toddler. When my daughter was young she could still sit in the front seat with me because cars weren’t all equipped with air bags. As time went on they became more strict until where we are today. Infant seats, rear facing car seats, car seats for toddlers and by law children in the back seat until they’re a certain age or weight. So, it has always baffled me that a vehicle that carries our children every week day for 9 months out of the year doesn’t have restraints of any kind, except for the driver.  While it has been brought up in legislation before, still nothing has done about it. Is it because of funding? Estimated costs to equip a school bus with seat belts is approximately $8000. Totally worth the money if it saves the lives of our children, don’t you think?

Does Minnesota Have As Many Snowmobile Enthusiasts As Wisconsin

My father always had snowmobiles. We had a Polaris, a Ski-doo and some of you may remember the Scorpion brand, we had one with the red seat sporting the raised scorpion logo.  I haven’t been on a sled for years and back then a sled referred to a child's toy. Recently while on a trip to my sisters in the heart of WI (and a snow belt) I was shocked to see all the trails and people on snowmobiles. Especially when we went to the Cross Country Bar in Rhineland.
