I grew up during the space race. I remember the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. I remember the names of Glenn, Chaffey, Armstrong. And I remember the first time my father brought home dinner in an envelope. It was a large white envelope with red printing. It had the drawing of a Mercury capsule and a guy in a spacesuit outside. It was also emblazoned with the words; "Sammy's Pizza". When Living North Magazine editor Holly Henry suggested that the Meat 'n Potato Man do a series on pizza, I balked. I told Holly, "How could this be fair? Sammy's is the best, bar none, on the planet.
Lily was in pathetic condition when she was found nearly starved, wandering rural neighborhoods of Duluth. Her neglected horse hooves, and an especially damaged back hoof, made each step painful. Lily's escape from her owner, given her poor health, was remarkable and tragic, but her rescue by Russ and Wendy Krook is a blessing beyond Lily's now-restored health and beyond the Krook's personal delight in helping her. Lily is now a full-time equine "counselor" at Seeds of Hope Youth Ranch.
I just love discovering new things.
I come from a long line of ice cream lovers. A highlight of each trip to Chicago to visit my grandma was the moment she would say, "Let's take a ride." I knew that meant we'd pile into my dad's car and we would drive right to my grandma's favorite ice cream parlor. When we weren't visiting my grandma, my dad made sure that I had an occasional fix of ice cream. We made frequent trips to the local Bridgeman's ice cream parlor. I got hooked on the combination of chocolate and mint on one of our dad-daughter visits.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- It may appear to the casual observer approaching the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center that one of the experiments is trying to escape. Don't be alarmed. It's neither mutant nor experimental -- just a healthy, adventuresome vine reaching from the second floor of the U.S. Department of Agriculture building toward the ground, where no doubt it will root soon and bring forth pumpkins by Halloween. And the bewhiskered rats in two planters on the second-floor patio? Relax.

In a recent Sunday edition of The Duluth News Tribune, writer Jana Hollingsworth toured local restaurants and located deals on meals to help beat the recession. Hey Jana, the recession is OVER. I'm goin' out for a steak! In keeping with The Meat 'n' Potato Man tradition, I bring to your attention three locations for your consideration.
Prior to January 20, 2009 Nels Thoreson had been out of the United States on trips to Canada. Since then, he has been to eight other countries. On January 20, Thoreson flew in to Panama City, Panama and began a three-month excursion that would take him through Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize, Mexico and back into the States, where he visited Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Thoreson's travels are part of an expedition called The World by Road.
The morning began with my desire to take my daughter and two granddaughters to Duluth's Lakewalk, a boardwalk and in some places an accompanying macadam surface constructed along the shoreline of Lake Superior near the city's port area. Walkers, bicyclists, and even skateboarders enjoy the view as well as the exercise.
