Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Minnesotans for Global Warming

My daughter’s friend, The Magical Storyteller, posted this video on his blog a while back. His mom sent me a note about it. Being from Minnesota, I guess she thought I would be amused. I was. I actually thought setting the flamingo free was the funny part since my daughter and I have been known to go “flocking” for fund raisers and such. When you are done with the video, you might want to check out Minnesotans for Global Warming (M4GW). They have some amusing stories on their blog, plus an article about International Falls being officially designated the “Icebox of the Nation.” As one commenter put it:
Does anybody even know what an icebox is anymore? Maybe we should go for the “Ice Cube Tray of the Nation?”
Whichever designation you choose, the fact is that Minnesota is cold and snowy in the winter, as demonstrated by the scenery in this video. Enjoy!
