It's a place for conversation and coffee. Budding artists, as well as homework-laden teens find comfort and inspiration within its confines. Games (from Monopoly to Texas Hold 'Em) are won and lost around the table. Pencil-drawn, horizontal lines measuring a child's growth reach higher and higher along the wall in the corner behind a door. Birthday candles are extinguished. Permission slips signed. Secrets are whispered. Laughter erupts. Mealtimes are shared. Memories are made. And it all happens in the kitchen. What is it about the kitchen?
A family home can connect generations. Debbie Thompson grew up around the block from her grandmother, Thorborg Hendricks, in North End Superior. As a little girl, Debbie would walk to Thorborg's house for Norwegian cookies and coffee and look out the windows of that house watching for her mother to return home from work at the Superior Public Library. When her grandmother died, Debbie's parents, James and Emily Powers, kept the house in the family and rented it out after her Mr.
Living North: Why earthworms? Hale: First of all, most people don't know that there are no native earthworms in the Great Lakes region, none, zero, zip. So all earthworms they know and love came over with the Europeans. And while everything you've heard about earthworms being good in the garden -- they aerate the soil, make organic material, increase nutrient turnover -- that's all true.
Back in December I was almost giddy over the first snowfall. I remember sitting at my computer looking out the window thinking how lucky we were to live here. The steam from my spiced tea was reminiscent of the scents of Christmas, and my dog slept peacefully in front of the fire. Ahhh, a winter wonderland.

Katrina Korman's examination of the seasonal variation in the number of muons reaching the MINOS detector indirectly led to another discovery -- the underground detector also can detect when the atmosphere between 12 and 31 miles above the planet suddenly warms up. That finding could help scientists working to understand how changes in the upper atmosphere affect the weather on Earth's surface. The discovery came after UMD physics professor Alec Habig asked atmospheric researchers if there was more precise temperature data for the upper atmosphere than what Korman had to use. "They said, 'Y
Nevaeh was standing in front of the television today messing with the buttons when she farted. It was so loud she jumped and looked behind her for the culprit. I laugh as I write this, but I'm sure when Nevaeh gets to an age where she can read and understand, she won't laugh. But at 1-year-old nothing bothers her much. I'd like to think she gets this from me. Annasty, on the other hand, was not pleased as to the answer I gave her last month when I was writing this column. "What are you writing about, mama?" she asked me. So I reminded her of the time she purposely peed the bed.
Michelle Aleff and Jackie Hotchkin have good taste. And they come by it naturally. Growing up, the sisters remember helping their mother tear down walls to open up areas of their home.
I loved Dr. Roger A. MacDonald's first two books, "A Country Doctor's Chronicle" and "A Country Doctor's Casebook," so I was happy to make the belated discovery recently that he had written a third book, "A Country Doctor's Journal," published in 2007. These are fabulous books that everyone should read! Dr.
