I Learned My Lesson, Take Inventory Of What’s In Your Wallet, Here’s Why

I'm always going a hundred miles an hour and multi-tasking.  It was because of this trait that I had something happen to me that stopped me in my tracks and made me realize an important life lesson that I want to share with you.  At the risk of sounding like a tagline for Capitol One, "what's in your wallet"?

Consider Donating To The Salvation Army When Spring Cleaning Your Home

Call me crazy (it wouldn't be the first time), but I'm looking forward to another week of wintery mix before we get some warm spring weather in the Northland.  It will give me a little more time to do some much needed spring cleaning.  If you are planning to do the same, consider donating your clothes and other household items to the Salvation Army.

Local Woman Followed Around Cloquet Wal-Mart By Male Stranger, Be Aware Of Surroundings

Before we start sharing this important information that every person male or female should know I want you to know that this in no way indicates that Wal-Mart is responsible for the situation, it's just where she was when it happened and could happen anywhere.  I was so rattled by her story, I want to get it out to as many of people as possible, especially since it happened in our community.

LuLaRoe Leggings Under Fire For Poor Quality, Have You Experienced This?

First off I have to say that I do not own a pair of LuLaRoe Leggings.  I was invited to a friend's party was unable to attend.  When the fashion craze first hit I heard how soft they were and a bit on the spendy side, but my friends were all buying them.  Now, there is a class-action lawsuit in California against the company and I'm curious if women in the Northland agree.

Minnesota Twins Announce 2017 Schedule Of Theme Nights

Even I've been to a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field! As the resident non-sports fan in the building, I usually have no reference point to any game-related talk that goes on.  But - in an effort to make someone happy a few years ago, I rode along and attended a game in the Twin Cities.  And while I didn't watch a single minute of it, I do recognize that the Minnesota Twin boast a world-class facility - offering true baseball fans a great experience.

Is The New Trend Swimming With The Pigs Replacing Swimming With Dolphins?

My friend Jill went on vacation to the Caribbean and may have stumbled on the new trend, swimming with the pigs.  Up until now I've only heard people talk about being thrilled to have been able to swim with the dolphins.  Many do it so they can cross it off their bucket list.  I LOVE pigs, so I have now placed swimming with them on my bucket list.  However, Jill didn't have the best experience and it's something I need to keep in mind and you should know.
