Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

Central Minnesota Christmas Decoration Offender Task Force

I have a couple of neighbors that still have their Christmas decorations up. I'm not just talking about lights (which I'm almost OK with), I'm talking wreaths on doors, and garland & ribbon on lamp posts. It's April for God's sake! Do you still have yours up? Do you have neighborhood offenders?
