The holder of a Master of Arts in History from the University of North Dakota, Eric has taught courses in history and political science at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. He is also an adjunct lecturer in history for Hamline University, St. Paul, MN.

To me, the test of a good salad bar in this area is if it stocks pickled herring. The Smokehouse in Fertile makes a point of it, but when I arrived at the container which usually contains the herring, it was empty but for juice. Mmmmm. 

It wasn't until I sat down that I figured out why. Champoo had taken it all. Although there is no Thai equivalent of pickled herring, she absolutely loves the stuff. Her mother Kae, left, can't understand it as she hates the stuff. But Champoo? She emptied the bin. 

We thought when Kae was introduced to our familiy that she was a energetic life force like we had never seen. And then...Champoo arrived. Somebody described her as "the least depressed child I have ever seen." She is go, go, go. She is helping plant the gardens. It is actually quite the scene. I drove out to the nursery tonight at about 8 p.m. and there were Joe, Kae and Champoo, still working, designing and planting beds.
