Andy Winford

I am originally from Los Angeles, but grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. In between I spent two years of my childhood in Montana. One in Great Falls and the other in Havre. My mom married a Canadian when I was 9 and we moved to Canada. Because the winters in Edmonton are too damn cold, I moved back to California once I was 21. My radio career has taken me to Casa Grande, Ariz., and to Palm Springs, Fresno and San Luis Obispo, Calif., and back to Edmonton, which is a great city that, thanks to global warming, isn’t quite as cold as it used to be but colder than I can handle. So I took a position here in Billings, where the winters were much milder. Now, in the Palm Springs of Washington, I play poker, basketball and flag football in my free time. My claim to fame is that my wife Monica is sisters with the former Miss El Salvador 1996, who came in sixth in that year's Miss Universe competition. Of course I think my wife is prettier than her sister! I also have a 12 year-old daughter named Noel who is in junior high and was the fifth-grade champion high jumper.

As I deck out my new pad in cool mid century modern furniture I'm always looking for that extra accent that really makes it scream Mad Men. We have some really cool antique shops in downtown Billings which are just the place to find a cool clock like this early 60's brass sunburst clock

Has Technology Really Made Our Lives Better?

It's conventional wisdom that computers and modern technology have raised our collective standard of living. In some instances there is no argument. Computer models predicting severe weather, GPS's in our smart phones and (in my case) organizational tools like Outlook calendars have saved lives, time and made us more productive

Awesome Home Design At Montana Thrift Store Prices

I've been writing about my thrift store finds here for the last year and a half. I've found some awesome items for bargain basement prices... sometimes even lower than what's on the tags at the thrift stores themselves (partly due to being a regular and developing relationships with the folks that work there)

Montana Avenue Is Saf-er Than It Used To Be

The pic above was taken last week right in front of my loft apartment building on Montana Ave. When I moved here about 2 and a half years ago long time Billings residents told me that where I live used to be skid row and that the redevelopment of the historic district has vastly improved the neighborhood
