Like most cities, big and small, Minot is always doing little things to create tourist photo ops hoping those photos will end up on social media. Well we (the Timm family) took the bait with the new "Magic Minot" sculpture at the end of Main Street and here it is on social media.Two out of Three stands for the members of my family that I love. Tina is in Japan for two weeks with her Guard unit. You notice Carol is wearing a jacket, that was a week ago, over the last two days we have set record high temps in the 90's.

The search for a Director for the Taube Museum Of Art came to an end a few months ago when Rachel Alfaro took the reins. I'm so glad that Rachel found time to visit with me this morning, just in time to get the Minot Today radio broadcast on the air over KHRT 1320 AM and 106.9 FM out of Minot North Dakota. Rachel fills us in on upcoming events at the Taube. It's a jam packed schedule but I want to point out their biggest fundraiser of the year... SOUP IT UP! Check it out on their website or on their FaceBook page. Next year I'm bringing my famous (only in my own mind) chile.Minot Today is broadcast over the air on two Minot radio stations every Friday.

I may have preached on this before but a conversation I had minutes ago got my blood a pumping again on this subject.Regretfully, 12/30/19 was the last day of business for our one and only Christian bookstore, Gideon's Trumpet.Gideon's Trumpet is truly a casualty of on line shopping.I get that.

Kay said it went very well BUT she was surprised at the incredible amount of shoplifting that went on during the sale. WOW! Who goes into a Christian bookstore to steal? I hate to suggest it would be Christians but who else goes into a Christian bookstore!When I've railed on this topic in the past it was over the visable evidence of theft at church rummage...

One of the oldest, common rumors about notarial procedures is that a notary must never notarize a blank document. Although the contents of a signer’s document are irrelevant to a notarization, the statutes of a few states specify that a notary may not sign their name and affix their seal on a blank document. A significant number of people believe that this means it is unlawful for the notary to notarize a signature on a document that is blank Others argue that because a document’s contents are irrelevant to the notarization, the above referenced prohibition probably refers to the notarial certificate and not to the signer’s document. It is indeed unlawful for a notary to sign and seal a blank notarial certificate. Notarizations are performed merely to ensure that the signer was not an i...

This little display is on top of  a counter at our Christian book store.I thought it was a unique idea but the owner openly admits that it was not her idea but she liked it and thought it was worthy of copying. I agree with her. I took one and put it on my desk even though I don't need a reminder to pray for our troops while my daughter is heading for basic training tomorrow.
