While we were in Saint Cloud for Red Bull’s Open Ice today Laura and I found time to stop in at McCanns Food and Brew. With five of their own brewed beers on tap and a full menu it was the perfect way to warm up. I would highly recommend their Deep Seven IPA and […]

Happy you liked my beer. Stop on by again.
Cheers, Chris

I spent Saturday on the frozen ice of Hiniker Pond in Mankato, Mn for Red Bull’s Open Ice. Sitting on a shovel on a frozen pond….not warm. If you like to play pick-up hockey there are events planned for each weekend until the end of February. You do not need to have a team to […]

Next time put some of those hand warmers in your back pocket – maybe that would help…cold metal on ice, not very warm at all, I’m sure!

The kitchen is starting to well look almost like a kitchen again. Can’t wait to get the flooring, tile, cabinets, appliances……. 🙂

Great photos, as always. I imagine winter presents some special challenges, particularly with the monotone landscape and the light, but you made the most of it, finding some great shadows and using the white as the perfect backdrop to the colorful subjects. Looks like a fun day!

I have to admit after the fire the blog really took a backseat to other things and then after I got things settled with the fire I had gotten out of my rythym. With the start of 2009 I’m looking to change that and get some content going again. I have quite a few things […]
