Geekstream: Pondering life in a multiverse
There is a theory out there that says the universe we live in is just one of an infinite number of universes. What does this mean for me and you? I don’t know, let’s ponder it. The problem with infinity, and I’m sure there is more than one, is that the concept itself is too...

Beverly Godfrey column: As time goes by, years are getting shorter
Life came full circle, in a way, Thursday at the Spirit Valley Days parade. My 12-year-old daughter was among volunteers who dressed up like book characters to march for the West Duluth public library. They borrowed costumes from the Duluth Playhouse and offered a pretty convincing...

Beverly Godfrey column: My kind of problems
I like that “First World problems” has become such a popular phrase. It refers, of course, to things that can be seen as problems only by people who enjoy wealth and prosperity. Even though its use is satirical, the joke serves as a good reminder of the blessings we have in America...

Beverly Godfrey column: Looking for yellow cars
This is turning into the summer of “Yellow Car.” It’s a game my teenage son came home from school with, something a friend taught him. The rules are simple: If you’re driving in your car and see a yellow car, you yell, “yellow car!” and get 1 point. If you see a taxi,...

Beverly Godfrey column: Britney Spears, pop defender of the arts
It’s a weird week when I feel compelled to defend Britney Spears, but here I go. A recording of her singing was leaked on the Internet last week. It wasn’t accompanied by music or “auto-tuning,” and I’ll agree it sounds pretty weak. But I listened to it with sympathy....

Beverly Godfrey column: Awards on parade in Superior
I’ve been an amateur parade critic for years, never content to just sit and watch, opinions bubbling to the surface with every new group that passes my spot on the sidewalk. Superior’s Fourth of July parade is always my favorite of the year. There’s plenty of candy being...

Beverly Godfrey column: Search for something suitable
It’s time to ditch the stretched-out maternity swimsuit I’ve been wearing for a decade; that decision isn’t hard. But what to get in its place? That’s more difficult to decide. Judging by what I see in stores and online, the thing I’m looking for isn’t common. I’d like...

Beverly Godfrey column: Something to cheer for at Grandma's Marathon
This year’s Grandma’s Marathon needed more cowbell. But when I got up at 5 a.m. to drive my son to the water station where he was volunteering, I couldn’t find it. Like a runner without her shoes, I was a cheerleader without her bell. Still, I gave it my best shot. At first...

Never pass up a high-five along the race course. If I had one piece of advice to offer fellow runners after completing my fifth Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, that would be it. I’ll let others offer tips about hydration and training and pacing. But one thing that really stood...

Beverly Godfrey column: An army of foul, foul creatures
“Out of it came a stench, … a foul reek, as if filth unnameable were piled and hoarded in the dark within.” — J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Two Towers” In the fall of 2000, there was about a week when you couldn’t walk through my backyard without getting hit in the face by...

Beverly Godfrey column: Sharing food — for the win
You know you’ve just won the potluck if you come home with an empty crockpot. I recently felt like a winner when my fried rice disappeared at one of those end-of-school-year-awards-ceremony-potluck events you probably have attended. It wasn’t exactly homemade, being mostly from...

A recent visit to a fast-food drive-through may have been a life-altering experience. I ordered my food, drove forward, paid and was handed my change. Before continuing with the story, some background becomes relevant: I was raised close enough to the border that it’s a lifetime...

If the Timberwolves hire Dave Joerger as their next head coach, they will be perpetuating a theme in Minnesota sports. Many decisionmakers hire in their own image. Wolves President Flip Saunders, who is running the coaching search, looks at Joerger and sees the younger version of...
