While their Tigger was able to for the first time partake in Lake Michigan salmon fishing, something that BEC has enjoyed many times over the years and was happy for Tigger to have the chance to try. Great family fun, he was joined by nephews and learned quickly how fishing with down riggers is a whole new ball game.

An event that brings well-known public figures from the state to learn from 4-H youth how to show and give reasons in a timed event in which these leaders must use the skills learned and compete in an actual “Showmanship Event”. 4-H is for all demographics and is an organization that strives to bring together youth from agriculture backgrounds to the city or suburbs, to unite in a positive, learning atmosphere that will provide lifelong skills and build friendships.

Thank You NDSU, NDSU Extension and 4-H for this acknowledgement.

DID YOU KNOW TRIVIA White-faced capuchin monkeys greet each other by sticking their fingers up each other’s noses. (How can you not laugh at that fact!)
Gummy bears were originally called “dancing” bears. The hagfish is the only animal that has a SKULL but no SPINE. People weigh less if they stand at the equator than if they stand at the North or South poles.
COOKING GRILLING TIP BEC's best tip of the week for conquering the GRILL when it comes to meats and vegetables is to make sure, "The Grill Is HOT!" Once the food is tossed on the grill, turn down the temp, but to ensure you get that great 'sear' on the beef or chicken to even the vegetables... Always have a HOT Grill to get started.
