It's the Great Minnesota Get-Together--better known to you out-of-staters as the greatest state fair in the nation! I'm off to revel in the cheese-curd infused delights of crazy carnival rides and free Boyz II Men concerts.

Historic Fort Snelling today and tomorrow. I am somewhat connected with this site, so maybe I'm biased, but if you come down, it'll be a lot of fun.
