DNT & Mexico Lindo

Headline on DNT.com today:

Twins owner Pohlad dead at 93
Carl Pohlad, a billionaire banker whose Minnesota Twins won two World Series titles during nearly his nearly quarter-century as owner, died today, a baseball official said. He was 93.

Sweet…I missed this the first time he died back in January while I was on vacation.

In other news, has anyone been to Mexico Lindo and noticed that they got rid of the burrito filled with french fries and veggies, and covered in oaxaca cheese? I believe this was one of the main reasons people went there (although their other food is good, too). What gives? Would McDonalds ax the Big Mac and think people wouldn’t care?

Public Restrooms

I used the women’s bathroom at ShopKo yesterday and it was the most disgusting experience I have had in a long time.  Of all the stalls, there was only one that was both “clean” and lockable.  There was neither soap nor towels at the sinks.  Nasty.  Which public restrooms do you avoid?

Duluth Papermaking

My fiance and I are looking to be married in August and are currently searching for recycled (hopefully seeded) paper for our invites. I have hunted around on the net, and got a few numbers, but I felt it would be good if we went with someone local. Does anyone around the area make paper or know someone who does? We have less than two weeks to come up with something before we’d like to have them printed, so the sooner the better. I actually tried making some paper last night, it worked out well, but I just don’t have enough time to get them all done. Let me know if you or anyone you know would be interested!

From Homegrown to worldwide

The Homegrown video for the Black-Eyed Snakes got picked up by the Channel Frederator Cartoon Podcast. It’s a weekly collection of animation from around the world. You can watch it on their site, or subscribe through the iTunes store.

Uses for the Honking Tree

30tree

Mayor Bolen of Two Harbors will be convening a public meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at the Two Harbor Community Center to discuss ideas for using the remains of the Honking Tree.

Suggestions?

For Paul

tick-removal

I’ve got a 2-year-old with tweezers. He would be happy to pull any and all ticks from you, as soon as he finishes with his puppy.

PDD Sponsorship?

So, the word is that Movies in the Park is a little low on sponsors this year and I had the idea that maybe PerfectDuluthDay could take up a collection to help underwrite the series or, if we get $1000, even sponsor one of the movies. I, personally, would be willing to contribute as I think it’s a great thing for the community. So, my questions are:

1) Would other people be willing to cough up some dough?

2) Does someone have a good idea of how to collect said money in a safe way? Preferably on line with paypal or some such thing.

3) Would the PDD powers-that-be be willing to bless such a sponsorship?

4) If we do break the $1000 mark and can sponsor a night, which movie would we like to sponsor? We get a free week of on air publicity and can do some sort of hosting event that night before the movie.

Discuss.

Please, take my hostas…

hosta1 I have three dug-up clumps of hostas (still clumped in the dirt) and four not-dug-up-yet        clumps. Whoever wants them can take them. I will make you homemade Brownies if you dig up the not-dug-up-yet clumps. I hate them, but I don’t want to kill them so really, you’d be doing me and the plants a favor.

Upon Reflection

The best thing I witnessed today was a child in a big, green, probably homemade helmet shouting at his friends, “Hey! Somebody punch me!”

Beat that.
