By |2021-09-08T09:29:05-05:00September 8th, 2021|

Not all careers require a college degree, which is really good when it comes to student loans. A company called SkillPointe has released its first "job score report," which showcases careers requiring two years of training or less. Then they ranked them based on current salaries . . . available job openings . . . future growth . . . and interest among job seekers.  Jobs in construction, technology, healthcare, and public service dominate the Top 25.  Here's the list: Software developer Systems analyst Electrician Police officer Truck driver Carpenter Plumber IT support specialist Nurse Certified nursing assistant Auto mechanic Teacher [...]

I was at a Vikings Season Kick-Off Party on Saturday, which was really cool to have the opportunity to be at. Then the live auction happened. I noticed it wasn't really about the cause, which was kids... nope! It was a measuring test of how much money each person has. The first item went for 26 thousand dollars, at that time I noticed I was not like the rest. No one noticed McDonald's no longer has salads. There’s a good chance that the wood used to build a birdhouse was from a cut-down tree that used to be a different bird’s [...]

Americans Say the Summer of 2021 Sucked

By |2021-08-25T10:27:30-05:00August 25th, 2021|

This poll confused me, because most people think this summer SUCKED . . . but we also want more of it?  A new survey of 1,500 Americans found 80% of us had a, quote, "bummer summer."  But 48% also wish there was a way to extend it for another two weeks.  (There's actually almost a month of summer left, by the way.)   Here are a few more random stats from the survey. . . 1.  27% said they'd rather have a root canal than relive this past summer.  (???)  37% would rather move in with their parents.  And 9% would rather feel [...]

The States with the Most Expensive Pizza

By |2021-08-24T08:40:04-05:00August 24th, 2021|

I don't how valuable this info is since no one's moving to a new state just to save a couple of bucks on pizza.  But I guess it means other stuff is cheaper too . . . Someone came up with a "Pizza Index" that ranks all 50 states according to how expensive the average pizza is.  (They did it by comparing prices on a website called MenuWithPrice.com.) The most expensive is Alaska, where the average cheese pizza costs $9.21.  And the cheapest pizza is in North Dakota, where the average is $6.64. The five cheapest pizza states are:  North Dakota, Rhode Island, [...]

I was at the Winstock music festival over the weekend, give people a reason to dress stupid and they will show you. One man was wearing suspenders and a Premium light box... that's all! Whoever makes the invisible earpieces that superheroes use to talk to each other during those loud super fights must be making a fortune. For as much coffee we consume from places like Caribou and Starbucks... you think they would have a faster drive-through system. Exciting news... if you haven't noticed we have two more roundabouts open in this town. One more and I'm sure we will hold [...]

Most Americans Are Uncomfortable Anywhere But Their Spot at Home

By |2021-08-18T07:14:54-05:00August 18th, 2021|

Do the people in your household settle into the exact same spots when you're at the kitchen table?  Watching TV?  Or just lounging around? In a new survey, two-thirds of Americans say they do have unofficial, "assigned" seating in their homes.  And most of those people say they're very passionate about their "spot."  In fact, 55% would feel "uncomfortable" sitting anywhere else. A lot of that is probably just routine, but 63% say they actually associate "positive memories" with particular areas or pieces of furniture. These numbers are backed up by another recent poll, where 63% of people said that when they [...]

Everyone should have noticed the beautiful weather this weekend. Hopefully you all were able to enjoy it. You ever notice how everyone would love to be able to fly like Superman, because in the movies it's always portrayed like it takes no effort. If it actually took lots of energy and required hours of training Most people probably wouldn't even do it! Living alone with 7 dwarves in a secluded forest is considered "Enchanting" in fairytales, but trashy in real life. I noticed we are now past halfway point of August... what happened to July? This summer has been a blur [...]

How Much Underwear Do You Pack for a One Week Vacation?

By |2021-08-11T07:13:49-05:00August 11th, 2021|

A woman went on Facebook recently and said that her husband complained that she packed too much for trips . . . and she wanted to know what people thought was acceptable for seven days away. She shared her own list, and she is heavy-handed . . . seven tops, seven t-shirts, seven pants, seven shorts, 10 socks, 14 underwear, five pajamas, three swimming suits, a shower towel, a swim towel, a beach towel, a coat, four hoodies, shoes, sandals, flip-flops, toiletries, and more . . . for EACH person. She admitted she prepares for all kinds of weather . . . [...]

Over the weekend we had great weather, I noticed a lot going on once again. We slipped into county fair time without really noticing. Blue Earth is already past, next up locally is Brown and Nicollet. Now I joke about this, but I hope we really did land on the moon, meanwhile, people still think the moon landing was fake but immediately believe two billionaires both went into space without any documentation of the two years of astronaut training it usually takes. It's highly unlikely that EVERYONE was king fu fighting. When you buy pre-shredded cheese, the cheese itself is technically [...]

The Summer Smells We Hate Most

By |2021-07-29T08:18:07-05:00July 29th, 2021|

Here's a fun would-you-rather question for summer: On a 100-degree day, would you rather get a big whiff of a sweaty dude's BODY ODOR . . . or a hot pile of GARBAGE? A new poll asked people to name the worst smells of summer, and those two tied for first. The summer smells we hate most are: Sweaty B.O. . . . hot trash . . . and lawnmower fumes. The smells we LOVE most are: Barbecue . . . fresh-cut grass . . . and beach air. The smell of sunblock ranked high as well. They also asked people [...]
