Dickens Festival

You had better be careful if you plan to theme your town’s annual Christmas celebration after a classic of Victorian literature. Settle on Stoker’s Dracula, Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, or Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and your little holiday shindig is going to start heads scratching and little else. Choose Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, however, and you’ll be well on your way to creating some memorable Yuletide festivities. This is what the town of Garrison, ND did, and look where it has gotten them today.

Buckstop Junction

Immigrants to Dakota fought tooth and nail against every adversity imaginable. In spite of the land’s inhospitableness, they did better than merely survive — rather, they prospered, and today we enjoy the fruits of their labor. Buckstop Junction pays tribute to our forebears’ unrelenting efforts to tame this land by preserving their original efforts at it. That they have saved and consolidated such treasures as The Lewis Hotel, the Bethel Lutheran Church, and the 1st State Bank of McClusky for all to see and enjoy is emblematic of our reverence for those who came before us.

Choosing a name is arguably the most important part of starting a new business. A great name will tell your customers what you do, while at the same time instilling confidence in your services. Many entrepreneurs take a direct approach when naming their businesses. “Ernie’s Pizza” in Philadelphia, for example, tells you two things: That there is a man named Ernie, and that he nearly certainly has pizza.

Many people believe that museums, libraries, and universities are the conservators of civilization’s most precious treasures. This belief is incorrect, especially when it comes to universities, institutions that have been corrupted to their very cores as of late thanks to the influence of radical professors who believe, condemnably, that part of a student’s final grade should be based on attendance. Rather, they are grandmas who preserve the very best of what humanity has cooked up during our short time on earth. They know the dessert recipes.
