Echoes From the Loafers’ Club Meeting   I wish I had enough money to buy an elephant.   What do you want with an elephant?   I don’t want an elephant. I just want enough money to buy one. Driving by Bruce's drive  I have a wonderful neighbor named Bruce. Whenever I pass his drive,...
Jesus turned His face to Jerusalem.  This turning is both a literary technique used in each gospel to show a shift in Jesus’ intention and purpose, and a specific action that indicated a willingness to go to the cross.  He moves from gathering a crowd with healings, casting out demons, and...
Congratulations to Waseca County Pioneer writers Jim Lutgens, Eli Lutgens and Deb Bently for the awards they received at the Minnesota Newspaper Association’s annual awards banquet. For a newspaper in its first year of eligibility, 10 total awards is an impressive accomplishment. Eli Lutgens has...

It’s roughly a $6 billion industry. I have several different bird feeders and stations spread out at our cabin; our favorite is the...
I am in trouble.  I forgot to winterize things at my house this year.  The front porch chairs are still out, I didn’t get a chance to rake my leaves, and my garden hose still has water in it.  Naomi mentioned it this past weekend and I realized that I have so much to do outside.  Good news though...
Echoes From the Loafers’ Club Meeting  What’s the name of that guy who was a mnemonist whose elephantine ability to remember large amounts of information caused him to be called the “Yoda of Memory Training,” who coauthored “The Memory Book” with the basketball star Jerry Lucas and performed...
