Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Week 30 - 56.24

This week puts me in the middle of nowhere, Minnesota.  South of Burton Lake, there are no other notable landmarks nearby.  Burton Lake has fishing, but it is recommended that you get a guide if you are to fish there.

The Minnesota Tourism site offers a list of 100 interesting points of trivia - here are the first ten:
1. The Minnesota lake with the most shoreline is Lake Vermillion.
2. The Minnesota Gold Rush was in 1865 and began at Lake Vermillion.
3. Saganaga Lake is the deepest lake in Minnesota, it also produced the largest Walleye ever caught in Minnesota weighing in at 17 lbs. 8 oz. in 1975!
4. There are 12,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in Minnesota, more than any other state in the nation.
5. Named after French explorer Daniel Graysolon Sieur du Luth Duluth is the largest freshwater port in the world. The St. Lawrence Seaway opened in 1959 allowing oceangoing ships to reach Duluth.
6. St. Louis county, the largest county in Minnesota, has more acres than the entire state of Connecticutt.
7. Home to the Jolly Green Giant is Le Seur.
8. Casey Jones was the engineer of Old No. 201 which is on display in Owatonna.
9. The Greyhound Bus Line was started in Hibbing when the town had to be moved for mine expansion.
10. Minnesotan baseball commentator Halsey Hal was the first to say ‘Holy Cow’ during a baseball broadcast.
