Minnesota Native Daughter Trailer
By Jannet Walsh
Murdock, Minnesota

I just updated the iMovie program, part of the iLife series, for editing video on my MacBook laptop computer. It was a great opportunity to test the latest pre-formatted movie trailer editing feature. The video looks like it might be used to promote movies coming out of Hollywood, but for me it is rural Minnesota. Of course, I made a video to promote my blog Minnesota Native Daughter.

The trailer video feature is a formatted program that does not allow for many changes, such as the length of video clips or music. It could be I have not yet figured out the program, but I really like the results as it is simple to edit the trailer video.
Learn more about iMovie if want to edit movies with little headache for your blog.

Robbins Island Park Hooping

Willmar, Minnesota

I was hooping at Robbins Island yesterday.

What’s that? One of hobbies is hula hooping, or simply called hooping, that I started earlier this year. First I learned by watching videos on YouTube and attended a workshop when I lived in Florida. I usually listen to music on my iPod and you will be sweating by the time you are done! I have little dance or hula hoop training, as you will see in the video, but you will become lost having fun, a key to exercising.


The Location

Robbins Island, located on Highway 71 North, between Foot and Willmar Lakes, Willmar, Minnesota is a park of my childhood memories. I can still remember my late father Martin J. Walsh Jr. taking me to the island. What I discovered as an adult the beauty of the rolling landscape and lush carpeting of green grass. This will be a great location for cross-country skiing this winter, yea!

Historical Facts – Robbins Island
(Information posted at Robbins Island by the Kandiyohi County Historical Society)

Robbins Island was formed about 25,000 years ago during the Wisconsin glaciation period. Early people used it as a refuge from prairie fires and their enemies. Artifacts, including a copper projectile point about 3 thousand years old, have been found here.

Swan Swanson and family took refuge here from the Dakota or Sioux Indians during the Uprising on August 21, 1862.

Before becoming part of the Willmar park system in 1934 the island was owned by J.S. Robbins, pioneer business family of Willmar, from who it received its name.

This is video was created with the iPhone 4. The hula hoop is from Pixie Hoops.

Please tell me what you think about the video. I amazed by the technology in such a small package!

Minnesota Point – Lost Hula Hoop video posted

In Family, Health, Hula Hoop, Minnesota, Minnesota Native Daughter, Travel on September 13, 2010 at 3:29 am

My visit to Minnesota Point this weekend reminded me I lost something.

I forgot about a video I shot just after Mother’s Day this year at Minnesota Point, a peninsula or a small island that extends from the Canal Park area of Duluth, Minnesota.

It was snowing on May 7, 2010 when I arrived from Florida, so it was cold for a spring day. Minnesota Point is connected by the Aerial Lift Bridge to the rest of the city of Duluth and has a small airport called Sky Harbor Airport, surrounded by Lake Superior and Superior Bay.

Attached is a video I photographed at the end of Minnesota Point, near the small airport. It was very windy and my head is cropped out in most of the video, so beware!
