I don’t expect everyone in Farmington or Rosemount to drop all of their weekend plans just to attend a Memorial Day ceremony. I do, however, ask that you take a minute, sometime over the weekend, just to think about those who have died for our freedom, those who have died defending the freedom of others, and those who have served our country but have now passed away.
With the weather finally heating up, it’s time to turn the page from winter to summer, and put together my poolside reading list. A team of local all-star readers here in Farmington inspired me to head out to the library.
A few weeks ago in this space I wrote about a survey that found Minnesota was one of the country’s hot spots for finding a sugar daddy. Now it seems Twin Cities residents are signing up in droves at whatsyourprice.com, a dating website that promises to remove the complications from matchmaking by allowing users to bid actual cash for a date with people they find attractive.
A garden can be a wonderful thing. It is a way to get outside, to connect with the Earth, to bring more healthful foods into your day-to-day diet.
It can also be much more than that, a fact that is becoming clearer all the time in Farmington and Rosemount.
I took myself a little staycation last week. I couldn’t have planned it better. Unless, of course, I’d taken it this week. Had I known I’d get a full week of sun instead of a half week I might have rescheduled.
It’s been two months now since we combined the two newspapers we produce in this office. That’s 10 issues and counting of combined Farmington and Rosemount news, and one comment we have heard multiple times from our readers.
Food drives don’t get much easier than the one that will take place this weekend in Farmington, Rosemount and cities all across the country. Depending on where your mailbox is, you might not even have to leave your house.
We finally beat winter. In one single week, the swirling snow of an impromptu blizzard gave way to toasty 70-degree sun. Without the constant grind of ice and slush, we suddenly have nothing to complain about.
Plenty of people think they have a lousy job. They daydream about winning the lottery or about writing the Great American Novel or, if the research I did for last week’s column is any indication, about finding a generous sugar daddy to keep them in the manner to which they would like to become accustomed.
There was some concern in recent weeks about what our extended winter weather might mean for Farmington’s annual park and pond cleanup event. Would people sign up, knowing it was possible the trash they were meant to collect would be buried under snowdrifts? Would everyone need to bring their own shovel?
