Dear MSBC,   Well, it’s January 2022 and we face those dreaded New Year’s resolutions once again. I don’t know if you have made any for this year or if you annually participate in making any or not.

Dear MSBC,   Approximately a thousand years ago, the famed Norseman, Erik the Red (named for his red hair, beard, and fiery temper), led a group of Vikings to set sail from Norway to go to what we know today as Greenland. At the time, Greenland was largely an uninhabitable island. The Norse colonies stablished there by Erik the Red were the first permanent European settlements.
