I'm sorry.....

School bus driver Jennifer Peery shared this selfie and words of wisdom, "Sometimes we say and do things we shouldn't. It happens. We're human. But if we want to grow from our mistakes, we must take ownership of our words and actions by admitting we were wrong and genuinely apologizing. That's what defines us. Make it a great day!

A newer, Japanese choice

My friend, Michael, and I tried a Japanese restaurant for lunch on Friday. Kyuramen opened in October in Eagan's "Town Centre." My lunch was the "Tokyo Tonkotsu Shouyu Ramen." They serve ramen bowls, Japanese beer, sake and appetizers. They received a great review from us. Top photo by: Michael Proebstle
