Several people have contacted me recently about a book I wrote involving my hobby, collecting Nemadji Indian Pottery. The pottery was made in the town where I live; Moose Lake, Minnesota. If you are interested in learning more about this collectible….here is a link to the amazon.com website where the book is sold.
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.
