Evan Hazard: Deerwood meals and ‘Whitby Tweed’
Last you heard, I’d had my Nov. 25 appointment at University of Minnesota Hospital Dental Clinic and the “beef curry Kandy (my daughter-in-law) made when we got back to Stuart and Carol’s was fine.” Tuesday, we drove back to Deerwood, stopping en route at a Chinese restaurant...

Evan Hazard: Eating our way to and in Minneapolis
Friday Nov. 22, the plan was that I follow Kandy’s emailed directions to Brian’s and her parsonage in Deerwood, pick up Kandy, and drive her to Stuart and Carol’s Twin Cities house before dark. I headed out later than expected (as usual), turned off 371 in Brainerd one stoplight...

Evan Hazard: An epiphany in G major and the music inside us
To me, all Bemidji Symphony Orchestra concerts are a must, but I really looked forward to “Homecoming Celebrations” on Nov. 10. I’m a Dvorák fan, and the concert included two favorites: his Symphony No. 8 in G and his ‘Cello Concerto in b. As many of you would expect, I...

The first three panels of the Aug. 20, 2003 “Arlo and Janis” cartoon depict the couple chatting in a Mexican eatery. No actual dialog is shown, but during the conversation, Janis and Arlo finish off two baskets of taco chips. Then, in panel 4, the waiter arrives with “Dos burritos...

Evan Hazard: Birds, tridecs and how to get rid of uninvited guests
In a May 2012 column, I mentioned that I simplified my feeding station by discarding larger bird seeds and putting smaller “blackseed” in both feeders. I still saw a decent variety of birds. That column, incidentally, had trademark problems. Where it says “seed(s),” and...

Evan Hazard: A fuzzy swath in the nighttime 'firmament'
The greatest wonder for naked eye stargazing was, for ages, also its greatest mystery. Away from light pollution on a clear moonless late evening this week, you will see lots of stars and one planet, Saturn low in the WSW. But, stretching from behind Perseus, which is now rising in...
