Jackie Hope: Fake Christmas trees no match for N.D. wind
Who still has flowers blooming in the yard? Besides flocked silk poinsettias positioned in your planter, or one of those spiral, wiry, lighted Christmas tree thingies. Those spiral yard display trees are pretty cool. They come in big, flat boxes, and then sort of uncurl like hair...

Hope: A brief history of Girl Scout Cookies
Know what comes in March? Yeah, St. Patrick’s Day, and sometimes Easter. But know what else? Girl Scout Cookies! Who doesn’t love Girl Scout Cookies? OK, so selling them was not the most fun thing to do. Especially when your mom was a Girl Scout leader and so you lost...

Hope: ‘Pls send help … for a mere $10,000’
Spam I am. Have you opened your spam box lately? No, not talking about a tin of that yummy hammy stuff. Even though opening a container of Spam is an exciting occasion, right up there with opening a fresh jar of extra-crunchy peanut butter. Both of those delicacies are great...

Did you see your shadow yesterday? OK, the real prognosticator, Phil the Groundhog, lives in Punxsutawney, Pa., and is a national celeb. Phil gets his 15 minutes of fame once a year, every year. Except in the movie “Groundhog Day.” Phil gets his 15 minutes of fame over and over...

Jackie Hope: Not exactly an all-star printer
My computer, named LeBron, got a brain transplant for Christmas. Yes, my computer has a name. Yes, he is named for King James. And no, my LeBron has not won any championships. But he’s racked up a record number of assists in writing last-minute assignments. See, LeBron was getting...

Jackie Hope: What’s your resolution?
Who’s resolving to lose weight in 2015? C’mon, you might as well own it, because you know you are thinking about it. Not only Wiki and a 2013 Harris poll, but also a www.us.gov website cite losing weight as our most popular New Year’s resolution. Interestingly enough, the...

Jackie Hope: Winter arrives at 4:03 p.m.
Have you noticed the sun has gone south for the winter? There are, like, only 15 minutes of daylight outside these days. And those minutes always seem to drop by between 1-1:15 each afternoon. So when you take your after-lunch nap, you’re gonna miss the entire day. Oh, you don’t...

Jackie Hope: We own winter!
Aren’t you excited that winter has unofficially arrived? Really. Don’t you kinda like it when the snow squeaks underfoot, when those frigid echoes bounce and grow in the biting-cold air, and when the eerie blue light reflects off the snow crystals at night? All right! That stuff...

Jackie Hope: The best sales happen after Halloween
You can have your Black Friday sales. You can do those day-after-Christmas clearances. But the best of the best, the cream of your dreams, the sale that puts the choc in chocoholic, comes on the morning after Halloween. Oh yeah, baby! Don’t you love watching the morning-after sales...

Anybody know where boxelder bugs go during their off season? It’s like they are invisible, or hibernating, or vacationing in Cancun during three seasons of the year. Then from Columbus Day until Veteran’s Day they do a Sherwin Williams Cover the Earth over every vertical outdoor...

Jackie Hope: Haunting stories come to life at Odd Fellows Lodge
There is something very odd in downtown Dickinson. We’re not saying the Odd Fellows Lodge in Dickinson is haunted. Not exactly. It’s just that some really strange things are happening there. OK, it’s an old building. Like well over 100 years old. Of course in people years,...
