Hello Minnesotans! I grew up in Wisconsin and Minnesota but I consider Mankato, MN my hometown. I currently live in Colorado and though we don't have any misquitos or humidity, I miss Minnesota. Just thought I would drop a line and say hey and let you know there is someone in Colorado pulling for you all!

I need your help to save the crippled geese of Silver Lake, Rochester.<br><br><br><br>
Silver Lake has the world's largest concentration of wintering Canada geese. The city administration has promoted the feeding of the geese as a tourist attraction for decades. Due to hunting outside city limits, fishing at Silver Lake, and open water at the lake year-round, there are large numbers of crippled and wounded geese at the lake. They have been able to survive thanks to the kindness of Rochester residents and visitors.<br><br><br><br>
Beginning April 1, 2007, the city administration is planning to create a 30-foot wide buffer zone around the shoreline using native grasses and plants. They will also ban the feeding of geese, shake eggs, and increase hunting beyond the usual hunting seasons. They are also considering rounding up and sending to slaughter flightless geese during the molting season.<br><br><br><br>
These new policies will be detrimental to all the geese, but particularly to the significant numbers of crippled geese. These crippled geese will suffer greatly and starve to death.<br><br><br><br>
Please <a href="http://www.about.lovecanadageese.com/silverlake.html" target="_blank"><b>CLICK HERE</b></a> for more information about this issue.<br><br><br><br>
We have just created a petition to try and help save the crippled geese. Please <b><a href="http://www.petitiononline.com/geese07/petition.html" target="_blank">CLICK HERE</a></b> to sign it and forward it to all your friends.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

Eff that. I couldn't handle a school that size. I go to UW Stout, not Madison. I find it humorous though that Wisconsin residents pay less at the U than Minnesota residents do.. wtf?

Hey everyone, seeing as the "Great Minnesota Get Together" starts tomorrow, I wondering just how many of you attend or plan on attending, and if any of you are against it? I have gone every year since I was born and now I would feel like a hypocrite if i go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/">

Hi, everyone!<br><br><br><br>
I'm from Virginia, but I'm going on a road trip to Missouri and Minnesota the first week of March to visit friends. I've never been out to the mid-west. One of the friends I'm (hopefully) seeing lives in New Prague, MN. Does anyone live near there? Are there any places I should see in MN when I'm out there?<br><br><br><br>
Thanks!<br><br><br><br>

Hey everyone!! I'm originally from The Iron Range (i.e. Britt, Tower, Virginia area) and I'm currently in Illinois BUT after the mini vacay I just had in South Minneapolis I've decided to migrate that way sometime this summer instead of going to Portland. I'll be there for about a year and THEN I'm off to Portland!! Peace & Love!!
