Strange House

I found a few pictures of some other strange houses.

This first one looks as if it is made up of cargo containers. I would be afraid to stand so close to the windows or put any heavy furniture in that room.  I also would have built it right on the edge of the water so the top would hang right over the water.


This next house is very precariously placed.  I would hate to be sleep-walking around the yard.  I think it would be cool to have transparent floors so you could watch the boats go by.

Beyonce in town!

Beyonce Knowles was in town tonight at the Target Center.  I didn’t get to go see her but I would have loved to!  She is Sacha Fierce!  I loved her in dreamgirls.  It was such a wonderful show.


At the concert, fellow soul songstress, and sister, Solange joined Beyonce as a special guest.

Beyonce always gives a lot to charities.  The show was to benefit the Charles & Phyllis Newman Foundation and the Knowles Family charitable organization, The Survivor Foundation.

This is a summary of what those charaties do:

About The Newman Foundation:

The Newman Foundation supports programs of National and International significance that promote medical research and discovery in humans and animals that add to the quality of life and longevity of their lives.

About The Survivor Foundation:

The Survivor Foundation helps to transform the lives of survivors of social, economic and catastrophic hardships by providing assistance, education and support.

I love seeing a talented and beautiful performer who spends so much time and money giving back to the community.  I wish all celebs did this.  The world would be a brighter place.

Fun things to do in Minneapolis

There are so many fun activities to do in the twin-cities in the summer.  I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy the fireworks over the fourth.  On Sat and Sun at 7:00 pm  – 8:00 pm South of the Broadway Bridge, near 17th Avenue on West River Parkway The Twin Cities River Rats Water Ski Show Team will perform free, hour-long water ski shows on the Mississippi River on Saturday, July 18th and Sunday, July 19th, at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM each day.


This is a great event for budget conscious families.

Don’t forget, the Minneapolis Aquatennial is fast approaching as well.

081I am working on my milk-carton boat as we speak.  Ok, that’s not true, but I do like to get out and see all the creative entries!  Another must-see event for the twin-cities enthusiasts.


On Sat July 25th is the big fireworks show.  This is the best display of fireworks you will see all year!  It is the largest annual fireworks show west of the Mississippi River, and the fourth largest annual fireworks show in the United States!  So if you like loud booms and bright lights, get out there and check it out!
