Fundraiser Start! 1/23/14

Hi folks, the fundraiser has officially started.  Please check out the donation buttons at the bottoms of the Habitat for Humanity and Hawk Ridge pages of my new website.  I'd really appreciate it!  Also, share this site with your friends so they can help, too!
For anyone in the Duluth area, I'll be at the Habitat for Humanity Ice House Event on Saturday the 25 to support Habitat's mission and answer questions.    It's at Fitger's Inn from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.  I'll also be sleeping in Habitat's ice house that night.  Feel free to stop by and check out the "cute puppy" and "ice lantern" contests, and, of course, the ice house.
Finally, for those who watch PBS's Almanac North, I'll be featured in the show on Friday the 24 at 8:00 pm.  If you don't get the show but would like to watch, they put all their episodes online after airing them.  Here's the link:
Again, remember to look at the donation pages!  Thanks!

*NOTE:  My blog is permanently moving to my website,  I will be posting on that site from now on.


  1. The sleeping pills industry is damaging our health by capitalizing on our ignorance, and by distracting people from effective and natural ways to deal with this problem. I had been taking prescription sleep medications [Ambien] for over 5 years. It stopped working and I simply took more. Still did not work. Nights were very difficult - medication put me to sleep but I would wake up after 2–3 hours with a strong sympathetic response (fast pulse, pounding heartbeat, wide awake alert). It was a very difficult cycle to break. I was really in bad shape due to lack of sleep.
