When I see homes like this it makes me wonder who owns them. Is it a professional athlete? Maybe a CEO of a Fortune 500 company or someone who bought 1,000 BitCoins when they were at $200 each and sold them at the high price of $68,500 each.

Here is an incredible home sitting on a private island in the west Minneapolis suburb of Excelsior. The island setting provides 1, 150 feet of shoreline with a total of 1.37 acres.

As you will see in the gallery below, what makes this home special is its exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail. The materials are first class including marble, granite, and fine woods. There is a mixture of architectural styles throughout the home that blends together perfectly.

My favorite feature is the glass-covered atrium over the center hallway. Of course, the indoor bar and lounge that looks like were lifted from a fine hotel are nice too. So are the huge indoor hot tub and outdoor swimming pool. You can catch a movie in the comfy leather recliners in the theater room. An elevator provides easy access to each floor.

With nearly 14,000 square feet and five bedrooms, there is plenty of room to spread out. Guests can park in the eight-car unground garage that includes a car wash.

In 2021 the home was listed for $15,000,000. As of the time of this article, the price is $8,995,000.

Minnesota Vikings In The Super Bowl? Yep, I Can Remember All Four

It's that time of year, the time when everyone is talking about the NFL's upcoming Super Bowl.

It may be hard to believe, but there was a time when the Minnesota Vikings went to the Super Bowl.

And then they went again. And then again. And then again. Hey, we were one of the greatest teams of all time!

Unfortunately, it was the same time the Vikings lost the Super Bowl. And then again. And then again. And then again. Well, at least we must have been one of the second-best teams of all time!

For a whole lot of Vikings fans...you know, the ones who walk around with younger bones...the Vikings have never been to the Super Bowl.

Then there's the ol' dog that is me. I remember the first time... and the second... and the third... and the fourth.
