Use Battery Operated Socks For Comfort And Warmth At the Lake Superior Ice Festival

Battery operated socks rock!  Honestly there is so much to do the entire weekend at the Lake Superior Ice Festival you'll want to pack extra batteries for your socks.  I'm ALWAYS cold, I even use an electric blanket in July, but I'm not willing to sit out on any of the frozen fun and memories waiting to be made at the Lake Superior Ice Festival so I'm pulling out the long johns, my thermal cuddle duds and battery operated socks.

Diabetes Prevention Program Offers Important Classes In Duluth, Superior And Proctor

One in three Americans has prediabetes and doesn't even know it.  Almost everyone knows someone that is dealing with diabetes at some level.  If you think you don't, chances are you do and are unaware that a friend or family member is dealing with it.  There are free classes being offered that will introduce a healthy lifestyle that may reverse the prediabetes diagnosis.  That's fantastic and so worth it considering the alternative.

Sometimes you can hear about an event but you need to experience it for yourself in order to realize what it's all about.  That was the idea behind our radio station crew playing hooky (not "hockey" - with pun (semi) intended) yesterday on the ice near Barkers Island in Superior.  As the Twin Ports gets ready for the Lake Superior Ice Festival, we decided to actually get out on the ice at the event site to get an up-close and personal look at what awaits.

Wisconsin Residents Are Eligible To Settlement Money Involving Dairy Prices

I did not fully understand how this would work since I don't keep my grocery receipts.  How do you prove that you purchased milk and/or dairy products while a resident of Wisconsin from the year 2003 until now?  Sounds goofy doesn't it, but worth the few minutes it takes to give your information since you may be entitled to some cash.  Oh, and they don't ask for receipts.
