Christmas in My Neighborhood

Our neighborhood has outdone itself this year with lights, lawn decorations and wreaths. I think that the milder temperatures have allowed more homeowners a pleasanter climate to work outside. This santa appears without fail every single year. He's a pretty cool dude!

Today in Minnesota History: 1999 - St. Paul native Paul Molitor announces his retirement from baseball, having spent his final three seasons with the Minnesota Twins. His career hits numbered over 3,000, most of them from his years with the Milwaukee Brewers. (Reference: MNHS:ORG)
