When the kids get out of school and are around all summer, sometimes parents need to get creative on how to keep them busy and get them out of the house. And each year, some families wonder what is the perfect gift to give dad for Father's Day. Well, how about checking out the way life was back in the 19th century agricultural industry?
Well doesn't that sound like fun? Ok, maybe not at first blush, but this event sounds like a blast for those families who like to be outside and working with their hands. This event, hosted by the Kelley Farm staff
, would be a great day for dad...!--more-->
With summer finally coming on (is it? wasn't it 52º today in the Twin Cities?) it's hard to embrace the long wait until the Minnesota State Fair. But Minnesota is filled with many other summer fairs that can help bridge the gap between now and then.
The Clay County Fair is certainly one of those events -- look for this fair in mid July in Barnesville. Sure it's a drive northwest up 94, but it's worth it for fair food.
The four day event is packed with family entertainment that has something for everyone to appreciate. Most of all, delicious (and mostly unhealthy) food.
This fair has been in operation for over a century, starting up...!--more-->
has always been one of those hallmark, eye-opening sci-fi movies, not just for its frights but also how it stretched the genre. It’s been decades since the first movie hit theaters and now we’ve had multiple installments. Of those movies, I would argue only three are good: Alien
, and Prometheus
. All the others are either bad or just plain awful.
essentially improves on the flaws of Prometheus
, uses a tried and true formula...
Not a bad deal — Key West-Havana for only $100 one way?
The brochure beckoning you to “Travel The Comfortable Way.” And then Vic Chenea, the airline representative, crowing about the wide wicker seats, sweeping glass windows and even free bags -- before plying you with rum on the airline’s tab. Who wouldn’t jump on that type of personal service? You’re in and a convenient return time from Havana at 3:55 p.m. to boot. What could go wrong?
Well it started with the rain and low visibility out of Havana. And then wondering by 5:00 p.m. -- isn’t the flight supposed to be one hour?
By 5:15 p.m. the pilot and mechanic are using binoculars to look for Florida and then asking if you can help find the Sand Key Lighthouse...
Well, we got through the dry and boring month of April where most movies go to die (except The Fate and the Furious
). Thankfully, May is here and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
is about to kick off the season right (or so we hope).
In anticipation for the upcoming summer box office, I've put together this guide to help you navigate the many movies that'll be thrown your way. Because let's be honest, it's hard to sift through this stuff. Of course, there's no real way to know if a movie is going to be good or not until it debuts, but sometimes it's pretty easy to see the red flags. Be sure to check...!--more-->
The Minnesota Twins have completed their first month of play, finishing above most fans' expectations. This is a much improved ball club from the Twins of last April where they had a record of 7-17 that month and would go on to finish the season 59-103 and would never get out of the cellar.
Part of the Twins much improved play is the performance of Miguel Sano. Sano currently has a batting line of .317/.446/.707 with 8 HRs, 27 RBIs and 19 runs scored. He also has 19 bases on balls and 33 strikeouts.
In Sunday’s 7-5 win over the Kansas City Royals, Sano was basically a one man wrecking machine. He drove in five of the Twins runs on three hits in five at bats with three of those...!--more-->
