Very early into our courtship my future Fianc'e and later Bride, invited me to Thanksgiving dinner with her family. The meal reminded me of the best meals our family had on holidays but this was somehow even better. I'm thinking it was great dishes like this Reunion Bean Pot dish.In contemplation...
Nature Made! Beauty on the 4th of July.No man made fireworks match the width or color of a rainbow. As a bonus the storm that the rainbow is commemorating was just to the right and adding all the "boom" you could ask for.Prior to and after the brief rain we were serenaded by many canaries and oth...

Well we (the Timm family) took the bait with the new "Magic Minot" sculpture at the end of Main Street and here it is on social media.Two out of Three ...
