I was born in the southern U.S. and raised by a 21 year Marine Corps Vietnam Vet and his hard working, successful, Tennessee born bride. They set the bar pretty high for their three kids...so I decided to just walk under it and go into radio at age 16. After years of "town to town, up and down the dial", I made my way to Billings in 2005. That turned out to be the best decision I ever made. It lead to a great job, and the love of my life, my daughter, Eliana. I'm happy to be raising her in a place with a great mix of conservative family values and progressive ideas about inclusion and embracing the differences in people (provided they are not too liberal or from California).
Stuff To Do With The Kids This Weekend
This weekend, you can catch something more tween appropriate at the Babcock: Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part. My daughter and I will be checking that out on Saturday. She's never been inside the Babcock and I'm sure it will be a memorable experience.
Lunch at COR Enterprises
Had a cheap lunch out at COR enterprises today and since there are likely plenty of people who don't know anything about this organization, I thought I'd share. COR's primary goal is to provide training and employment opportunities to people with various disabilities. There's a l…
How Do Teachers Stay Healthy?
I used to be that person who never got sick, but apparently those days are over. I'm on my second cold of 2019 and it's February. I suppose I could blame my aging body that I don't take proper care of, but I still choose to blame my daughter and the germ factories she hangs out with…
New Anti-Snoring Treatment Puts Red Hot Probes Up Your Nose
There is a new treatment available now, but I don't think I have ever loved anyone enough to put myself through this medieval torture. Two metal rods are heated up to 140 degrees and then shoved up the snorer's nose. In many cases, this burns and shrinks some of the tissue causing the bl…
All 2,100 Payless Shoe Stores Closing
In the case of Payless, they're not only dealing with online giants, but other brick and mortar giants who not only carry many of the same brands, but also sell groceries, car batteries and pet food.
Names of Kids Most Likely to Get in Trouble at School
The two nerdiest nerds I can recall from my own past were Willard and Myron. It's almost as if their parents knew they would end up being the eggheads in school. Football captains have names like Trent or Trevor...not Eggbert or Cornelius.
Internet Threat Could Lead To Missing Teens in Montana
This is a note to parents of teens to warn them about the latest internet challenge. The "48 Hour Challenge" encourages teens to disappear for 48 hours in hopes they may have their pics posted as a missing person on social media.
Shoplifting Just Keeps Getting Tougher
In a world full of cameras and alarms, I imagine it's tough being a shoplifter. I was in Albertsons today and was told by the check out lady that I would need to back up and let her login to her register, then bring the cart forward again. Apparently, it needs to be acknowledged that the cart…
According to Google, This is Montana’s Favorite Super Bowl Food
I take internet surveys with a grain of salt, but Google is pretty good at tracking searches and their originating locations. Still, this is pretty hard to believe. In an article from Delish, they tracked the most popular searches for Super Bowl Party foods by state and Montana's was... Lentil…
America’s Top 10 Worst Fears
Good news for Montanans: The top fear most Americans have is snakes. Montana of course is only home to one venomous snake
