Future Minnesota Vikings fan Kingston Woods anticipates, but is denied, a spoonful of cheese dip during Sunday's game.
Heartbreak is not new to Vikings fans. Heartbreak is what we expect.

“This Old House,” “Fixer Upper” and “Property Brothers” are among my favorite home improvement shows. It’s exciting to watch the resurrection of a once-loved home into a structure that is cared for again. Recently I have become a big fan of cooking shows and one in particular — so much so that I am...
