Why Are Self-Checkouts The New Norm At Stores Like Walmart?

It's a growing trend that really hit home here in the Northland recently:  The Walmart in Superior remodeled their checkout area - reducing the number of cashier-manned lanes, replacing the majority of them with a large self-checkout area.  In addition to the focus on waiting on yourself, they've also started providing less human cashiers in the remaining  "regular" lanes.  It's  easy to see that the retailer is forcing people to use the self checkouts whether or not they want to.

A Steam Mop Is My Latest Favorite Gadget, It Works!

Between my kitchen that is a laminate looking wood but still warps when it gets wet and my camper floor that is filthy, I would go through half a bottle of 409 and two whole rolls of paper toweling. I was at a lost and would procrastinate because it was a knee and back breaker.  Now I have clean floors at a fraction of the work.

I Crossed Something Off My Bucket List While On Vacation

I've really never been one to have a bucket list.  I consider myself lucky to have been able to participate in so many crazy, wild, fun and amazing things due to my job.  But, if I did have an actual bucket list I don't think I'd have death defying activities on it anyhow.  Instead it would list things I've always wanted to do and hope that I get time to get around to it.  That happened during my last vacation.

Do You Experience Road Rage? Take A Quiz And Be Honest

I wish I had this quiz printed to hand to the person that I was following over the Blatnik bridge on Monday.  He was tailgating, driving erratically and the two drivers in front of him weren't having it.  They pretty much blocked him so he couldn't get past either of them, it was very unsafe.

Which Does Your Family Prefer, Catalina Or Western Dressing?

My husband started a garden last year and this year we're reaping bountiful lettuce sooner than expected.  We were going to a friend's house for a barbecue and we proudly brought a giant bowl of garden lettuce laced with fresh veggies.  While in the grocery store choosing dressing we got into the conversation of which we should bring to the barbecue, Western (often called French) or Catalina.  Which one sits in your fridge?

Did You Know That You Can Rent Camping Equipment Right Here in the Twin Ports?

I have readily admitted that I am not much of an outdoors person, unless it pertains to sitting on a beach. So camping for me seems pretty daunting and expensive since I don't even own a sleeping bag. But I found some places that rent everything you need.

While we were camping in Two Harbors at Burlington Bay, we had to run to Super One. We decided to go for a drive on the road that passes by Super One.  We saw a paved running trail and made note that we would have to try that route the next morning, then we saw something that was so cool we just had to stop and take a pic.
