Cold Cold Cold Cold Cold Wind Blowing. It is supposed to get down to 10 degrees tonight. However, the snow we have had has not stayed. Those Swedish/Norwegian/German people who settled here were a bit crazy. And they passed it on to their posterity. Crazy people...loving the cold...going fishing on the lakes.... just crazy.

The lakes truly become a town. The pizza guy knows where to deliver the pizzas. Our missionaries can't go tracting on the lake. A couple of years ago 2 sisters tried. They went "house to house". The reason they can't go out there is because it is just a bunch of drunk guys sitting in smaller houses, pretending to fish, getting drunk.

There are two places here in MN that claim to be the Lutfisk Capitals of the World. I just think those people think it is fun to make other people eat slime. (n): dried cod soaked in a lye solution before boiling to give it a gelatinous consistency.

Everything you every wanted to know about Lutfisk...I learned so much.

Being of Norwegian descent, and having a dad from Minnesota...I know all about Lutfisk. I've never actually TASTED it, mind you, (who would), but yes...I know it exists. Why it hasn't disappeared is the real mystery!
