As I reported on Thursday Robbie Kneivel would attempt to jump four airplanes and a helicopter as part of the Birthday Bash at the LCO Casino near Hayward Wisconsin. Indian Country News is reporting he did break a new world record near Hayward Wisconsin August 17, 2008. To see video of his jump and to learn of his injury…click the picture above and go to Indian Country News.
Oofta–this guy was lucky!

Robbie Knieval, motorcycle Daredevil will jump four airplanes and a helicopter August 16th, 2008 on Saturday night, 6 PM at the LCO Casino near Hayward Wisconsin.
He visited the Northlands NewCenter and talked with me about his next big attempt to break a world record. By the way, the Helicopter blades will be turning! Oofta….this guy has guts!

The Brits invade Duluth, Minnesota as part of Maritime History Festival. My daughter Jitterbug ran into a jolly good group of Brits! Oofta she had fun!
My post on watermellon pickles and libido brought in the most hits ever on my blog. Oofta, now I know what all of you have been thinking! This post—has nothing to do with pickles unless they are stored in the galley of a tall ship.
Thousands of Northlanders are expected to turn out on Thursday for the arrival of three tall ships in the Duluth, Minnesota harbor. Lake Superior has brought us many wonderful things over the years….and this week, as part of Maritime Heritage Festival we will have the chance to see the Niagra, Madeline and the Pride of Baltimore.
As a reporter and civilian I have traveled on several vessels, including a cruise ship and an iron ore carrier. My husband also paddles a mean little canoe. But I have always dreamed of sailing on a tall ship. I’m trying to figure out how I can become a stow-a-way on the Baltimore. My luck I would end up a cast-a-way on an uncharted island off the Northshore. Oofta!
This week’s event in Duluth should be very exciting…as it also marks the 150th year of statehood for Minnesota.
To see some beautiful photos of the Pride….follow this link.
I was afforded a great honor Friday night at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center. While the President of Finland was inside listening to the Minnesota Orchestra…I was outside cleaning up after the Reindeer. Oofta it was messy but kinda fun in a stupid way.

Cute but messy!
The sport of mountain biking is picking up in popularity in the Northland…where fat tires rule the trail. Now a small group of local athletes are pushing themselves to the limits when it comes to handling their bikes.
Their talent goes well beyond the standard rock jump. This week in Duluth, Minnesota my daughter and I went for a walk on the city’s lakewalk along beautiful Lake Superior. We always enjoy our time together and we often see things that many people simply miss because they are busy burning off calories from dinner.

But some of us have learned if you stop and look around you there are gifts that can make you day…and you might be lucky to see people like Rudy defying gravity along the rocky shore.
