You go, JS!!! Your images are beautiful and I love that PDD said your artwork is “deceptively simple,” that’s so accurate.
Thanks for clearing up the long “a” sound at the end of Zuccone.
“Nordic Ski” could be anywhere but for the lake detailing in the upper left-hand corner. The nuanced piece catches the sparseness of winter. What a treat!
We used Paul Bugge for an inspection (we were the buyer). He was great to deal with, friendly, and helpful.
Make sure you get one who understands that s/he works for you, not the realtor. I loved the one who helped me, because he was able to help me understand $16,000 in repairs in the next three years, repairs which would only serve to maintain the va...
Everybody raves about Paul Bugge.
Oh man. Loved volunteering there for Homegrown, so much fun. Last year, Homegrown 2015, at Norm’s, A Winter Downpour opened the evening, with Kristy & the Forget-Me-Nots, then closing out Charlie Parr. Awesome night! The year before, Homegrown...
PDD did tackle the Mesaba/Missabe/Mesabi question about nine months ago, though not phonetically. We’ll get the AV crew straight to work on this!
Next let’s settle the Mesab-A/Mesab-EE debate for that road that runs diagonally up the hill from Superior St. to Central Entrance. It’s spelled Mesab-A, and some people pronounce it that way, but a lot of other people pronounce it Mesab-EE, presu...
Hey way to go John Hoban! I was hoping for a gallery! Sketchbooks rule, if only I could draw…
Yeah. I would guess that they’re still talking about 1918 in this postcard. I mean, when I go hiking back of Woodland, I am pretty conscious of the fact that much of what you’re seeing (like say, on both sides of Vermilion Road), is still the regr...
Reminds me of the time I lost a fortune on Tungsten, I remember having to look it up after meeting a guy in a bar in Marine, Mn around the time of the crash who confessed to being an ogre. Lost story short he did that bar bragging dreamer schemer ...
Thanks HBH1. I guess that answers a couple of questions. The Rice Lake fire wasn’t that big and it happened in ’31!
Yeah, I’ve let Dan know that the stage in the middle of the mezzanine (facing the bar) was added post Rick Boo, circa 2004/2006. The black “permanent” riser type stage was at the right side if you were looking from the bar, opposite the worker mu...
Here is the historical society sign at the corner of West Calvary and Rice Lake Road.
Walt was a really good person. He would drive up to Duluth from St. Cloud on a regular basis to pick up Ski-Doo’s and parts and we would always have a great conversation. The Plaisted Polar Expedition would have never made it to the North Pole wit...
The balcony was converted into a movie theater in 1992 and the strip stage was added in 2006, according to the NorShor Theatre Historical Slide Show compiled by Tony Dierckins.
The article talks about the balcony becoming a second venue in 1998, which sounds right, because I remember movies and I think comedy up there in the 1990s, when I still lived in MSP and vacationed up here.
It suggests that the stripper stage was ...
A company we can be incredibly proud to have in our community. And the best outdoor furniture on the market. I’ve got a patio of the stuff we saved up for. Worth every penny.
Presumably the Cloquet Fire of 1918, but one would think by 1936 things would have been fairly lush.
I wonder which fire is being referenced. It seems too late to be the Great Hinkley Fire. When was the Rice Lake “Airport” Fire?
I’m interested in this building -- How can I reach Jim?
From the Sept. 18, 2000, Duluth News Tribune:
Greysolon residents view NorShor rooftop as an eyesore; complaints prompt Ringsred’s promise to clean up
By Bob Linneman
In the face of complaints from residents of Greysolon Plaza, downtown property ...
“Ditto ditto and likewise,
Greetings on some long paths
from your angular knees
in Hibbing. A.S.”
yeah, I hope it really says that. but someone who actually speaks Swedish might make more sense of it.
I’ll throw out that the last few times I had a pint at the Capri, the beer tasted awful. It seems like the lines are really dirty, or the beer is really old. That was well over four months ago, though.
I know, but granny’s tired now…
My neighbor’s dad grew up in Gary before the war and would survive the Battle of the Bulge. There is a photo of him in Alaska holding a large dude above his head using the muscle he had put on after the war, a feat considering he’d returned weigh...
Oh, Herzog, I missed bantering with you.
Not outlawing lead in tackle has to be among the more profoundly retarded things Americans have done alongside such classics as destabilizing the middle east/creating global jihad/ etc. There was even a Republican representative who introduced leg...
Looks like not much has changed price-wise. From 1960 to 1970 I always bought my beer in Souptown. Most of the time the quick drive to Oliver.
The tax on alcohol beverages in Duluth is among the highest I’ve heard of.
As a side note, I think the Arrowhead Tap House at the Duluth International Airport holds the distinction of charging the most in the area for a pint of beer. Bent Hop isn’t on tap there, but a pint of Bent Paddle 14º ESB goes for $8.20 ($7.25 pl...
Surreal, foggy, purple scene up at Enger Tower tonight.
