Happy St. Patrick's Day from the Iditarod -         I hope you are well!  It is spring like weather today here in Prior Lake Minnesota, my hometown on the edge of the Prairie.  The birds are singing.  We have some interesting news today! Our cute and determined 14 year old identical twin neighbor girls (Chloe and Carlie) who have always loved animals, have turned it into a sport.  Today they will be riding in the ceremonial start of the Iditarod – the legendary long-dis... http://ow.ly/2VDGDI

Grumpy Ole Men -           It is a bluebird day today in Prior Lake, Minnesota my hometown on the edge of Prairie.  Today I will take our high energy dog “Major” cross country skiing on the lake and go check up on my husband to remind him to be home in time to take me out for Valentine’s Day dinner.  He left on the snowmobile this afternoon to “fish” in one of his friends ice shanties.  Every year the lake is speckled with many little ice shanties that form temporary wi... http://ow.ly/2UGdA1

A Special Father's Day Cottage Meal Idea... - Well it has been a quiet week in Prior Lake, Minnesota, my hometown, out there on the edge of the prairie. This recipe has been in my husband’s family for many years. It actually goes back to when my husband’s father was teaching high school in a very small northern Midwestern town in the 1960s. His parents rented an old farm house and his mother was paging through some 1930s farm journal magazines left in the attic of the h... http://ow.ly/2HRmH6

Baby Loons on the lake! - Wow!....we have had some interesting weather lately! The ice came off the lake the latest we have ever seen and we had a big snow storm in May. Just to be funny I turned on our Christmas lights. Needless to say the stoic Scandinavian immigrant decedents didn’t find the snow or our lights a laughing matter. Oh well I thought it was funny…
On a sad note the late ice caused many of the loons returning to their lifetime nesting grounds found the C... http://ow.ly/2xmeJQ
