I always half-expected Hop Sing to come out of the back when we went to Ponderosa OR Bonanza.

You should dress up as Hop Sing for Halloween, unless Matt is going to.

Should I laugh at this?

I don't know what it means ....

Been there many times Matt
And yep, they have a good one
When we're headed farther north, that's always our first stop spot

You know it's open when the pickup truck with the big "CAFE OPEN" sign sitting in its box is parked out front. I always chuckle when I see that.

On the other hand, you have a Perkins in Marshall. So what else do you really need?

Just ate there last Friday night, we do that when I have a breakfast-at-night craving.
I'm always good with a perkins. Good variety

Too many choices. Can never make up my mind. I'm usually mildly disappointed, but not upset. I think their omelettes are getting smaller.

See? we do see some things alike
I just said that last week
Mushroom and chees used to be my go-to, now its kinda blah, and a lot smaller
I appreciate that they always have good fruit available

Fruit? Unless it's in a pie, no thanks.

Pretty interesting thread on the regional term beef commercial:

http://message.snopes.com/showthread.php?t=6426

I'd say that's pretty accurate. Surprised that a place in Detroit Lakes would refer to a beef commercial, but the rest of the town examples kind of fit what I was saying. I think it's a southcentral/southwest Minnesota thing.

Sweeney, SMF is being a jerk again. As administrator, can you penalize him?

Too bad about the TK Steakhouse. I almost tried that place several years ago.

Power grid went out in Vermillion.

Heard this on the news this morning.

At the same time, Lake Country Power was reporting just over 8,300 members without power. The majority of those outages are around Lake Vermilion and Hill City.

My guess, and this is purely a guess, that Norwood and Young America remain at the same population, even if they grow which they will, for the next 50 years.

Are you posting from work or from your basement?
Did you get fired?

Correction: I have never been to Winona either.



Son

You aren't missing anything

Winona is a "college town"....sorta

But is a working town. Industrial
River traffic/businesses.

It's about 28K but ...nothing special.

I'll be curious to see how the golf/Ryder Cup lawsuit turns out.

You're in the gallery at a golf tournament. Whoda thought you could get hit, let alone lose an eye?

This person would probably sue the NHL for getting hit by a puck being above the glass, or get hit by a baseball just past the nets.
