Re: WEATHERMANIA

Re: Consumer Research

I have two weeks yet for my appointment which I’ve had on the books since January. My fear is there will be a corona spike and they’ll have to close again by then..... Salons have been open for a month in ND and there hasn’t been a spike. There are also no people in ND. ;) Kidding aside, if there i...

The Feb 22 game at Penn state is on big ten network at 11 pm tonight; if you just watch the first period it might be worth it.

Mine now is probably The Punisher (Netflix series) or Deadpool (movies). Never really read any comics growing up but I loved TMNT in my youth. I’m not into supe...

Re: Youth Hockey

I’m taking an adult skills class at Minnesota made. Same thing, groups of ten and we can’t scrimmage, only practice skills spaced apart. They have a one way route for traffic through the building.
