ofta I get to meet some interesting folks

Recently I traveled to Minnesota’s Iron Range to give a talk to a group of amazing women.  The lady in the picture with me is a self described “senior cougar”  She loves to chat up men and enjoys every minute of her life. She says its easy to meet men, simple start talking to them!

Here is a song that will stick with you….oofta!

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.
