Jackie Hope: How the trees and shrubs took over the garden
So, how does your garden look after last Wednesday’s hail? Yeah, ours too. Alright, full disclosure here. We don’t have a garden, exactly. We have veggie patches. We have flower and veggie pots. We have bare spots in the shrubbery where we raise everything except kohlrabi. But...

TR Symposium packed full of entertainment
Don’t know about you guys, but I’m always up for a little free entertainment. Like this past summer’s Alive@Five shows. Epic. Downtown Dickinson scored some first class acts for us: Gwen, Kat, and Tigirlily all onstage the same night; FireHouse; Aaron Tippin. Best summer ever. But...

2015: The summer Lollapalooza of classic rock
Still rollin’ – and rockin’ — from the Fogerty "1969" concert, the Hopes’ "Summer of the Oldies: Party Like It’s Still the 20th Century Tour" made a stop in Moorhead, Minn., a couple of weeks ago. Oh yeah, the "Happy Together Tour" rocked out at Moorhead’s Bluestem...

Whats with all the retro '70s stuff this fall?
What’s with all the retro ’70s stuff this fall? The fall fashion issue of Vogue says the ’70s are the next big thing. As early as last Christmas, vogue.co.uk suggested in the spring of 2015, collections would rely heavily on the ’70s. And they know their ’70s in the...

What happened to the honebees this summer?
It's time we talked about the birds and bees. Well, mostly about bees. There used to be bees honeying up to honeysuckles and apple trees and petunias. Once upon a time, if you were a serious gardener, you’d get stung every summer. Because you’d put your hand somewhere you...

Baby boomers cheer for their rock star
Hey, 1969, we found your rock star. And we aren’t giving him back. Last Tuesday was the Bismarck stop on John Fogerty’s "1969" tour. So, of course, we traveled to Bismarck and time-traveled with Fogerty back to 1969. Like, who wouldn’t want to visit 1969? Psychedelic music,...

Jackie Hope: Once in a blue moon
Know what happened last Friday? It was something pretty rare. Something that only happens once in a blue moon. Yeah, it was a blue moon. What, didn’t you see that baby blue beauty rising in the east and casting blue moonlight all over your lettuce plants? Or, if you are me, all...

State Fair: 50 years of best exhibits, food and fun
The North Dakota State Fair is 50 years old this summer, which makes it the same age as Robert Downey Jr., J.K. Rowling, Brooke Shields and Carrot Top. Remember him? Famous for those AT&T commercials, but more famous for the carrot-colored ‘fro. Bet that orange hair color...

Another record-breaking season for ND fishing
So … do you fish? Guessing you do, because the North Dakota Game and Fish folks issued 160,100 resident licenses and 59,300 non-resident licenses for the 2013-14 fishing year. That was a record for them and they are predicting another record-breaking year this season. If each...

We can't seem to manage life without lists
What is it with human beings and our lists of stuff? We make lists of groceries. We make lists of weekend chores. We have apps to help us with our lists and we have lists of apps lined up on the faces of our phones. To-do lists list things we haven’t done yet, but intend to...

Today marks historical events and Ringo's birthday
Lots of historical-type things happened today. In 1863, the U.S. began its first military draft. In 1928, the first loaf of sliced bread was sold in Chillicothe, Mo. In 1947, a UFO crashed in Roswell, N.M., which is way cooler than sliced bread. It’s the birthday of Gustav Mahler,...

Yard mushrooms: Yummy snack or deadly plant?
What’s with all those mini-mushrooms that have appeared overnight in everyone’s back yards? They look like yummy shiitake mushers but are as deadly as a mad Kardashian. They pop up under trees, under lettuce leaves and in the cracks between patio pavers. And man, those little...

Jackie Hope: Bring on the beetle defenders

Jackie Hope: North Dakotans know their weather
Here is the difference between native North Dakotans and folks who come to visit, and maybe stay. When we look at a darkening sky we think, “Yay, rain. The rhubarb is gonna love it.” When newbies look at a gray sky they think, “The smog is thick today.” When we see a yellowish-brownish-tannish...

Jackie Hope: Fond memories of marshmallows
Mmmm, summer. Mmm, cook-outs. Mmmm, marshmallows! You can have your barbecued burgers, your grilled brats and your racks of ribs. But roasted marshmallows are the finest cook-out food to ever fall into the fire. You can cook them on a skewer. You can eat 10, or eat fewer. Roast...
