Happy Birthday Minnesota!

From The Writer's Almanac
On this day, in 1858 the state of Minnesota was admitted into the Union. It's the home of the world's largest Paul Bunyan statue, and it was from Minnesotans that we got the stapler, water skis, and roller blades—not to mention Scotch tape, Bisquick, and Spam.

A nice day so far. In fact, the past 15 hours have been lovely. BRDM practice was good and productive, despite my legs feeling super tight. I stopped at home to say hi to Elsa and then headed up to Delafield for one last dinner with Scott before Guatemala steals him away. We got up at 5 am. He left for the airport, which gave me an hour's worth of coffee, breakfast and New Yorker before a really wonderful 6:30 yoga class.
