Growing up, one of my mom’s favorite sayings was that it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.  And I know it was one I used on my own children now and again.  But somehow over the years we tend to forget this.  Babies smile about 400 times a day, while the average adult only smiles 20 times.  And, we are the only creatures on the planet that can smile.  … [Read more...]

There are so many lakes in Minnesota that many of them are not even named.  And many have the same name.  For example, there are 115 Long Lakes in Minnesota. Now, while this information is interesting and may even be useful if you are … [Read more...]
