AT WCCO.COM/LINKS. TO — SO IT’LL BE A VIEWING PART — PARTY AT MY HOME HOME — HOUSE. YEAH. WELL, THIS WEEKEND, YOU MAY HAVE A REFRESHING LEMONADE, MAYBE A /KHEULD BEER, AND WHY DO BEVERAGES TASTE BETTER COLD. WHEN LOIS FROM NEW BRIGHTON HEARD WE WERE ADDING A WOMAN TO THE $10 BILL, SHE WANTS TO KNOW WITH VERY — HAVE WE EVER CHANGED THE PICTURE ON OUR CURRENCY? WE’VE DONE IT, BUT NOT OFTEN. NOT PROBABLY ENOUGH — OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN THE LAST TIME WAS. MONEY AS WE MO IT TODAY CAME ABOUT IN 1913. THE LAST FACE CHANGE WAS 1929 WHEN THE $10 BILL — BILL WENT FROM PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON TO ALEXANDER HAMILTON. AT THE SAME TIME JACKSON MOVED TO THE 20, AND WE KNOCKED OFF /TKPWHROEFR — GROVER CLEVELAND. THE ONE, 5, 50, AND 100 HAVE /KWEPT — ALL KEPT THE SAME PACES — FACES. HOW DO STREETS IN NEW NEIGHBORHOODS GET NAMED? CITY CAN COME UP WITH NAMES BUT DEVELOPERS CAN TOO, AND USUALLY IT’S AFTER TAKING A LOOK AT THE TREES OR LAKES NEARBY, OR HERE NEAR THIS — IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IN CANTERBURY PARK, WE HAVE KENTUCKY DERBY WINNERS — STREETS NAMED AFTER KENTUCKY DERBY, BUT THE CITIES HAVE TO APPROVE THOSE NAMES, WHICH DOESN’T USUALLY HAPPEN ON THE FIRST TRY. THE NAMES HAVE TO FIT IN WITH THE CITY’S ALREADY EXISTING STREET NAMING SYSTEM. I WAS GOING TO GIVE YOU A WARM COKE. NOT INTO THAT. BRIAN FROM MINTICL MINTICL — MONTICELLO ASKS WHY DO DRINKS TASTE BETTER COOL. FOR EXAMPLE, EUROPEANS DON’T USE MUCH ICE. IT’S A HABIT. IF YOU HAVE THIS HABIT, THEN I — YOU DO USE IT. IF YOU DON’T HAVE THIS HAMBURGER, YOU DON’T USE IT. NOT SURE IF THERE’S SCIENCE BEHIND THAT AROUND — OR NOT. A TASTE SCIENTIST OVER AT THE U HELPED HELPED — HELPED ME OUT AT THIS ONE. A LOT OF THE FLAVOR IN OUR DRINKS COMFROM — COME FROM SMELL. I DON’T MIND A COLD BEER ON A WARM SUMMER DAY, RIGHT? TOTALLY AGREE. MY FAVORITE STORY ABOUT THIS, THE SCIENTISTS OVER AT THE U SAID WHEN HE — HE GREW UP ON A FARM SO THEY USED TO MILK THE COWS AND DRINK THE MILK STRAIGHT FROM THE COW, SO HE USED TO DRINK WARM MILK, AND HE GREW UP DRINKING THAT, AND THAT’S WHAT HE LIKED. IT’S INTERESTING. I LOVE A COLD SODA AND I LOVE A COLD DRINK, BUT I LIKE MY WATER WARM. IT’S INTERESTING WHAT YOU LEARN. YOU’RE LEARNING SOME HISTORY, SOME SCIENCE HERE.
