Help us with a theory

The other day, a friend and I were talking on Facebook about personality types according to Myers-Briggs and we noticed that, just in our circles of Duluth friends, there’s a huge proportion of one type of Myers-Briggs personality.

We then wondered if this was just coincidence or does Duluth have a larger-than-usual percentage of this relatively rare personality type.

So we’re turning to you all to help.

Please take this test (it’s free) and then post your results and the city in which you live. Thanks!

Name this song …

Can anyone name this artist or song? A friend of mine has had it for about 15 years and has never been able to find out what it is titled or who it is sung by. Zune, Shazam, and Soundhound have not been helpful. Perhaps this august group will be…

Arrowhead Auto Body or ABRA Auto Body?

After a car accident, I need to get the car repaired. My insurance has a “Circle of Providers” that it prefers (although I can go to anyone I choose and they will still pay) but using the “Circle of Provider” guarantees the work for the life of the car by the insurance company.

It’s mainly cosmetic damage. I am not out any money for this accident (not my fault) so cost isn’t a concern for me. The two providers they have in this area are Arrowhead Auto Body (home of the catchy jingle!) and ABRA Auto Body.

Any thoughts? Recommendations? Don’t go theres?

Donald Pridemore, Wisconsin Legislator, Says Single Parenting Leads To Abuse

I am starting to lie when people ask me where I grew up because of shit like this. If you aren’t aware, Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grotham, along with Wisconsin State Representative Donald Pridemore,  both Republicans, sponsored a bill in the Wisconsin Legislature that would mandate the state Child Abuse Prevention Board conduct public awareness campaigns emphasizing that single parenthood is a leading cause of child abuse.

Duluth’s Limerick, 2012 Version

There was an old man from Duluth
Who wept when he thought of the truth,
Remembering the chances with lots of refinances
and once while at Fon-Du-Luth.

(apologies, as I’m not really a good poet…)

Here is the original:
There once was an old maid from Duluth
Who wept when she thought of her youth
of all the missed chances at her school dances
and once in a telephone booth.

We Are One


We Are One

Please join us for a Noon Rally at City Hall to draw attention to the attacks on collective ing and workers’ rights across the country as well as the right wing’s “cuts only budget” that rates high in political rhetoric and low on moving Minnesota forward. These attacks and budget cuts impact real people and we want to stand up to them.

Then this evening, join us for a silent march and vigil to remember and honor Dr. King and all those who have been silenced in the struggle for equal rights. We will meet at the Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial at 5:30pm then march silently to the federal building where we will be greeted with music and will hold a vigil.
