Today the new Facebook timeline format went live. I’m not loving the new layout but I don’t have control over the matter. I do still really like the Facebook page because it’s an easy way to connect with the people who read my blog. If you read this site regularly, I’d like to encourage you to become a fan on Facebook and to use the like button to provide me with feedback! It’s very helpful to see what posts you want to read (or don’t care about) via that feature.

Today’s Groupon is $8 for two tickets to ‘The Sports Show’ at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (reg. $16). Track the evolution of sport from past time to spectacle and see how sports images express ideas about power and politics, culture and race, fans and fanatics.
Looking for an outdoor adventure with minimal equipment cost and experience required? If so, grab today’s Google Offer. Today’s offer is an 8 mile canoe trip for two for only $25 (Reg. $50).
When it comes to outdoor adventure, it’s obvious that “wild and scenic” tops “dull and ugly.” But what might not be immediately clear is what it takes for a piece of river to get dubbed “wild and scenic” by the Department of Natural Resources. Find out by floating down eight miles of such a stretch in a two-person canoe courtesy of Clear Waters Outfitting Company. With undeveloped shores, clear, gentle water, and ample opportunity for spotting eagles and other rare birds, the remote expanse of the Mississippi between Clearwater and Monticello is ideal for paddling, relaxing, and enjoying the pristine natural landscape. This serene two to three hour adventure is sure to take your appreciation for one of the state’s greatest resources to a whole new level.
FYI- Clearwater is only an hour NW of Minneapolis.
