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.

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.

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,...

Jackie Hope: Bring on the beetle defenders
The beetles are coming! The beetles are coming! Yes, we are victims of a slow and steady invasion. Japanese beetles are munching their way across the country. They are now threatening to cross the wide Missouri and turn your yard into buggy crudites. Crudite is French for “this...

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...

Jackie Hope: Spring cleaning: One project inevitably leads to another
Show of hands, people. Who has been busy with spring cleaning? Spring cleaning is overrated. And did you know it can become habit-forming? Spring cleaning starts harmlessly enough. You think you see your Labradoodle hiding in the close. Instead it turns out to be a dust bunny. So...

T-shirts evolve to rude sayings and bad ideas

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...
