I’m tired of reading blogs and Facebook posts about the most recent court ruling won by Hobby Lobby to refuse its female employees basic women’s health care and discriminate against decisions that should be made with a medical provider. I’ve organized a local protest to create awareness to the local store’s shoppers. We will be there the next three mornings at 9 a.m. until about noon with signs. We hope you will join us or help spread the word. E-mail or send your positive energy to me at cletarose @ gmail.com. Thanks!
Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.
Sure, the World Cup is going on in Brazil, but it’s Sweden vs. U.S.A. right here in Duluth when a bunch of teenagers from our sister city, VÃ¤xjÃ¶, Sweden, play soccer against some of our kids at Stebner Parktoday through Wednesday.
Here’s an opportunity for someone who knows a lot about turtles to show off and tell us all what specific kind of snapping turtle we are looking at here. It was spotted around 2:30 p.m. today lolling around by that nice little swampy nook just west of Indian Point Campground.
No, I’m not trying to copy myself. I have a Model 70 Conquerer Spirit Duplicator which I am trying to figure out. I have never used one but am interested in how the machine works and would love to get this one back in action. If anyone could share some knowledge or point me in the direction of some good resources I would greatly appreciate it.
I’m trying to find aniline dye to use on wood. Google’s failing to find me anything local, but the results seem to suggest I need a woodworking supply shop. Is there such a thing in town? Google’s failing me on that search, too.
Perfect Duluth Day is eleven years old today – Sunday, June 29, 2014. The official celebration is at Carmody Irish Pub tonight at 8 p.m. Fabulous prizes will be awarded to the top finishers of this week’s Pub Quiz, the questions for which will all be related to PDD. It’s a super tough quiz, so study intensively.
After seeing the post last summer about Eric Strand running the Grandma’s “Double” (3 a.m. from the finish line to the start, then runs the race) I’ve been waiting for Eric’s 2014 installment. Here it is, another excellent video showing a great inside look at the people of the race: the runners, the volunteers and the spectators. Good job, Duluth!
Spirit Room Tapas Bar & Restaurant opened on Monday in the Trade and Commerce Marketplace in Superior. It’s a classy joint, from the tapas on down to the intricate details in the mural. Check out the menu …
