A California dream researcher has proven something that wouldn’t surprise Mozart or Keith Richards. It’s that dreaming is a great way to solve creative problems.Dr. Sara Mednick, a sleep psychologist at the University of California, San Diego, found that subjects who, between morning and afternoon word-game sessions, took a nap that included a period of lively dreaming called REM sleep, improved their later scores by 40%.Scores for those who merely rested or whose naps included no REM sleep didn’t budge. REM sleep is the most conked-out stage of slumber, named after the rapid eye movement that characterizes it.The idea that dreams have creative utility isn’t new. Richards, for one, has said that he dreamed the riff that underlies the Rolling Stones song “Satisfaction,” and Mozart claim...

Q: Does the propane tank come with the house? It isn't listed with the appliances, and we weren't sure!! A:Yes, it can stay with the house. As we discussed when we wrote the offer, you will reimburse the Sellers for the propane, and can keep the tank in place, or find a different vendor to buy gas from. The vendor owns the tank and lets you use it in exchange for your buying fuel from them; and there is no charge if you switch vendors. The old tank would be picked up & new tank dropped off/hooked up. You will want to wait until the spring to have this done as you do not want to be without heat during the winter. Just keep in mind, in the spring with two trucks driving in your back yard you could have some yard care (better wait until it's dryed up a bit). So if you are going to change p...

HOW TO PEEL THE BIG ONION WITHOUT CRYING! Part 1 HOW TO PEEL THE BIG ONION WITHOUT CRYING! Part 2 The banking industry already has alot to answer for. They have re-keyed owner occupied properties before the sheriff's sale, they have made their own rules in selling REO assets, and now it seems they have shot themselves in the foot, again. The Banks have cut corners in the foreclosure process, which is different in each state, and in some cases they have taken property illegally (according to Plaintiffs Attorneys). Now these former homeowners are bringing suit to reclaim their homes. If there is even a remote chance this could happen, why buy an REO? You could be ordered by the court to vacate the home, if a judge finds for the original homeowner, and then your recourse is with the bank. ...

Sauk Rapids Rice Public Schools Independent School District 47 There have been a lot of changes to the Sauk Rapids Rice School District over the last few years. Most of the changes had to occur as the population of the City of Sauk Rapids grew by over 50% between 1990 and 2004. The biggest of these changes was the addition of a brand new high School building which opened in the fall of 2003. The New Sauk Rapids-Rice Sr. High School is a $47 million, 360,000 sq. foot, 2 story building situated on 250 acres of park preserve, situated on the east side of Highway 10.   The Sauk Rapids-Rice High School, designed with maximum flexibility in mind, is separated into three houses creating a feeling of a smaller school. The design also kept the possibility of future expansion in mind and there is...

 Whoo Hoo the Benton County Fair is here again! The 2010 Benton County Fair in Sauk Rapids Minnesota, August 3rd to August 8th, will be an event to remember and the schedule this year, as always, has something for everyone.
