Comment on Zayre Shoppers’ City Discount Department Store in West Duluth by Roy St George

First off, all the mice in the pet dept. were baby rats from nearby Elliott Meats.

Secondly, I too, saw the funky monkey. Nuff said.

That green pond…is still there…somewhere…

Fullerton Lumber fire could be seen as far east as the ore docks. We li...

For a second I was confused why we killed the natives and stole their land but when I see this it all makes sense.

Very good writing!

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. His invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the t...

Comment on Found: FitBit on 13th Avenue East leaving Movies in the Park by rev

Thanks @badcat!

Agree -- if you have one of these, it makes a lot of sense to include a phone number or email address! I’m surprised there’s no built-in owner info, whether it’s an owner info screen or something you can pull wirelessly when you c...

Comment on Found: FitBit on 13th Avenue East leaving Movies in the Park by BadCat!

If you don’t find the owner, you may want to try contacting FitBit (they may be able to connect it to the owner somehow).

Pro tip: You can customize your display text on your FitBit -- put your phone number there! 🙂

I was about to say nice, that’s fucking disgusting, but then I saw his lifeless body floating gracefully in the abyss and decided there was a certain beauty to it.

Comment on Duluth-area Podcasts and Other Audio Productions on the Web by Daniel Golden

My original show, the Wonderful World of Danny was that same year.

Comment on Duluth-area Podcasts and Other Audio Productions on the Web by Paul Lundgren

Believe it or not, I did think of you, Danny. I did a search a while back to see if there were episodes of “Danny Does Duluth” available and found nothing that would play. But for the record I’ll state that all evidence on the internet indicates t...
