    Ha. That video was stupid and juvenile. But also sort of funny. That is ridonkulous that Wisconsin is trying to say it is the mitten state! If you’re going to make fun of an Ohio football team — hello, the Browns are the worst team in the NFL. Even their fans ridicule them. U of M’s football program is hopeless.

    Just reminding folks

    The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs — including in-home day care centers — to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches

    must consist of one serving of meat,

    one serving of milk,

    one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables

    My favorite bike-helmet story: my younger son wore one when he learned to ride on two wheels.

    He hit a rock at the corner of someone’s driveway while riding around the block on the sidewalk. He fell and broke his arm. Didn’t make him wear one after that.
