Hello boys and girls. Next weekend I finally get a break and I am attending a golf tourney on Lake minnewaska in Gleenwood. Just looking forward to getting away. I need it as many hours as I have worked recently. I think I am feeling like Lisa, (always working and not enough play time). Glenn got any tips on that lake as the boat is going for a ride.

I also can say I have not seen or heard a thunderstorm yet this year. I have missed them all(not like there has been many around the cities this year.)

I had a friend driving home from St Cloud during that storm. She said the clouds were really freaky around Cold Spring!

Heading to northern WI for the weekend I think I may be a bit chilly in the tent. I am going to the Camp That I went to as a kid and worked at in my 20's. It is the 50th Anniversary for the camp. I also hope to maybe wet a line or 2 we will see.

Hope

I love weddings.

You mean there are actually people that love weddings. shocked Most of them are the usual same-o boring repetitive stuff copied from the weddings they had been forced to go to. whistle

It's just 64 degrees in SW MN and destined to hit the 40's tonite. Weird weather this summer.

I love weddings so much I some how end up as part of most of them I attend crycrazy. I was at Oake on the Water this afternoon, it was WINDY on the lake but worth it for the band. I plan on heading up to my dad's this weekend and getting some fishing/tanning done on the lake all day Sunday. Long overdue, that's all I have to say.

Everyone have a great weekend smile!!!!!!!!!

I headed down to the Twin Cities to do some fishing with Char and Tami. We hit up Lake George, 2 northerns, Green Lake in Isanti county, nothing, O'Dowd lake, nothing. But we had fun, I think I am getting Tami spoiled by letting her run my boat. Sure is nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving. Took a couple of pics I thought I would share. They were taken with my phone so they are not the greatest. (This was the weekend of the 16th)

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
