Bouncing team is tradition for Lukin family

"One! Two! Up she goes!" has been heard at the Winter Carnival for more than 120 years, starting with a few Victorians tossing a girl in the air from a blanket in 1886. And for the past decade, the Lukin family has been involved in the St. Paul Bouncing Team.

Ideas for a sweet Valentine's Day

While some folks believe you shouldn't need a day dedicated to outward displays that tell the one you love just how you feel, others like the special attention, gifts and goodies designed to convey one's feelings of love and friendship.

Pier, inshore and gulf fishing

Legs wide and pressed against the side of a 62-foot boat for balance, it took all my strength to reel in two 20- to 24-inch red snappers and two round triggerfish, which weighed between five and seven pounds, on a six-hour fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico, 12 miles out with no land in sight.

Birds and bi-planes

Before dawn we left our hotel in Orange Beach and headed down the road to Fort Morgan, an old Civil War fort now in ruins. We pulled of the road and walked through the woods to a clearing where a bird-banding tent was set up. The place was buzzing with passionate birders.

The Gulf bounces back

Ruby red shrimp, hot pink sunsets, sugary white sand beaches, dolphins swimming alongside our boat, bird-banding and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico were highlights of my recent trip to Orange Beach and adjacent Gulf Shores, Ala.

Glad to be a quilter

If you look closely, you'll notice that each square of Mary Drabik's quilt features an animal - a wolf or bald eagle, moose, cats, bats, monkeys, dogs, birds, rabbits, a rooster from a French piece of cloth and even mosquitoes - humorously sewn in.
