Sites that I find interesting
My Favorite Twin Cities Restaurants:
This fine restaurant is at 128 Cleveland Avenue North in western Saint Paul. Phone: 651-645-4128. They
have valet parking which removes a stress. They seem to stress wholesome ingredients.
What I like is that the menu is always evolving so each visit has new things for me to try.
This fine restaurant is at 2260 Como Avenue in Saint Paul. Phone: 651-644-9116.
Lovely restaurant with a continually fresh menu. I particularly enjoy a warm summer
night on their deck. But so do lots of other people. The Muffuletta website has an
online reservation utility.
Lucia's is at 1432 West 31st Street in Uptown Minneapolis. Phone: (612) 825-1572.
This is my favorite restaurant of all. I like the changing menu and the focus
on local foodstuffs and wholesome foodstuffs.
Favorite Restaurants in other locations:
favorite restaurant in Amsterdam. Diverse menu. Hearty food. I'm told it's
pronounced "Haahja Klaahss".
new favorite restaurant in Amsterdam. Diverse menu. Hearty food. I'm working my way through their entire menu. The dry ribs keep winning repeats with me. If you google Van Beeren Amsterdam, google automatically translates the page for you.

Check out her site and see her photographic and fine art work. Through her eye and hand you know the subject--be it human, animal, or scene--by the nuances she reveals.
webhost is QTH.com based in LaCrosse, WI. Scott Neader KA9FOX provides excellent
service, reliability, and support. It's an excellent value for hams or any small
business. Ask me for more detail on how good QTH.Com is!! Scott also runs Internet Solutions
which is a related webdesigning service.
with some other hams, runs a domain registration service. VERY reasonable prices
to get a domain such as w9fz.com .

addition, Chris hosts the PingJockey server for VHF'ers scheduling WSJT and JT44 QSO's.
Northern Lights Radio Society
--The Upper Midwest organization of VHF/UHF/SHF weak
signal enthusiasts. Although centered on the Twin Cities, members come from all
over the region. Each April hosts the "Aurora" gathering of antenna testing,
flea market, and technical program. Will host the Central States VHF Conference
in 2006 in the Twin Cities.
North Central Airlines History and Livery
--I recently flew a trip with a Captain who created this site. I think highly of his
layout and design. Excellent level of detail on paint schemes and types of aircraft
operated. Will likely become the premier location for North Central Airlines history.
The duck's name was Herman, so his site is hermantheduck dot org (hermantheduck.org).
His site MUST come up higher in searches than it does for North Central Airlines history.
This site is created by Tom Van Baak.
He has deep interest in accurate time and the history of time keeping machines.
His Museum of HP Clocks is amazing. He has a page with subscription instructions for the
Amazing Hotel Key Collection
guy's collection is amazing in it's scope. Further, his website is an effective way
to share his collection with the world. His cataloging and photos must be a
reference for other collectors. Yes, there is a Yahoo.UK group about
Hotel Key Collecting
--Delivering "Little Bundles of Love", in a box, directly to your door.
label has bands "from around the corner and around the globe". They have artists that major

"Little Darla has a Treat for You" series of samplers are a great way to open your ears
to some new sounds.
Asmatic Kitty Records
label is the home of Sufjan Stevens and several other artists. Ordering was smooth
and I'm going to try some of the other artists.
