Off The Beaten Path

“Sometimes,” posts Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho, “you don’t have to leave home to see the incredible masterpieces Mother Nature creates. In the flowers alongside my driveway I paused to watch this butterfly sip the nectar. It’s mornings and scenes like this that make us happy to be alive in this little corner of North Idaho paradise”

OLNI: Corbin Park Currents Deceptive

“Corbin Park (where photo above was taken) is one of my favorites in the area, but not for swimming,” posts Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho. “The currents can be deceptive and the park is posted to use extreme caution when entering the water. One young man died this morning when the currents overturned a canoe he and a friend we riding in just after sun-up downriver from the wide-open Post Falls dam. I urge everyone to be careful on the rivers, including the north fork of the Coeur d’Alene.

On Falls Park Pond

“A family of Canada goslings practice swimming in the pond at Falls Park in Post Falls. On North Idaho lakes and rivers, young wildlife are learning the ropes,” writes Kerri Thoresen/OnLocation North Idaho.

Sign Of The Times: Stimulus Plan

“Most Americans might not be aware that there’s more than one Oval Office,” posts Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho. “Thousands of miles from Washington, DC, the Oval Office in Post Falls is encouraging the citizens of North Idaho to stimulate the local economy by dining out.”

Question: How often do you stimulate the local economy by dining out?

Local Blogs — 2/4/09

“There’s no limit to the signs to be seen in North Idaho that prompt me to get out the camera,” posts Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho. “I didn’t want to loiter too long in front of this one, though.” Kerri didn’t say where she saw this “sign of the times.”  

‘Just’ A Homemaker: The lady on the phone wanted to know what I’m doing these days since I went to school for so long. I explained that I am currently not working out of the home because I have two small children. “Oh,” she exclaimed, “I’ll put down just “homemaker” in the occupation field.” Just homemaker. The term floated out of the phone as a cartoon-like bubble and lingered in the air. It conjures such a strange stereotype that I don’t feel that I fit. I’m not offended as some women might be/MamaJD. More here.

Question: Is there any problem with being “just” a homemaker?

Still Dressed In Winter White

“We haven’t seen new snowfall in North Idaho for the past several days,” posts Councilwoman KerriT/OnLocation North Idaho, “but the fog combined with freezing temperatures has decorated the pine trees on the Rathdrum Prairie in winter white.”

What Is It?

What looks like a pinecone amongst the green pine needles is not as it seems, posts Councilwoman KerriT on her blog, OnLocation North Idaho. Without looking, can you guess what it is? You can see if you’re right by click on this link?

Parting Shot — 12/17/08

“This neighborhood Santa shows the snow that began falling in North Idaho today and will continue with several more inches overnight. City streets, highways and I-90 have been tricky to travel with a layer of ice now being covered in snow,” sez Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho, adding: “Be careful out there.”
