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).
Homemade Halloween Costumes
If you're one of those who go the DIY route either for you or your kids, please share some of your biggest successes or disasters. Scary, funny, topical or vintage, the homemade suits that my daughter and I encounter on Wednesday, 10/31, will be more memorable than the sea of Black Panther stu…
Netflix’s New Binge Worthy / Cringe Worthy Show: The Haunting Of Hill House
Right off the bat I will say that this series has minimal gore, which is exactly what I was looking for. I've got nothing against a good bloody horror movie; in fact, I look forward to the new Halloween move in theaters later this week. I was just in the mood for a mostly psychological thrill…

Favorite Foods of The Holidays: Are You Already Eating Them?
Last night I noticed that Albertson's has beefed up their supply of eggnog. Of course, you can get this drink year round, but now they have the different flavors out as if it were already December.
Most Adults Believe In Ghosts?
I have to admit, I find it strange when I meet an adult who has a fear of ghosts. For me, ghosts fall into the category of elves, fairies, monsters, trolls, etc. Today I learned that the majority of adults (60%) believe in ghosts and 40% of those people believe their pets are able to see ghosts. …
Getting Your Kids To Brush Correctly
This skill, known as Chompers, is basically a two minute kid-friendly podcast designed to be listened to while brushing. It will give them a basic instruction e.g. "little circles on your top teeth" and then distract them with some jokes, riddles or trivia all the while having them change…
Working At Billings’ New Winco
I found a couple of videos on youtube which might give you an idea of what it's like to work for them. One is from Winco and the other video is from a former employee who worked for them for 16 years. From the looks of these videos, I would say that if you are in the market for a job, or are …
Huggers Are Happier
. The report itself didn't mean much to me, but it did make me think about the people I've encountered who always want to hug. As I was picturing these serial huggers in my mind's eye, I noticed a commonality...all of them are always smiling. I'm sure you know one of these typ…
Last Farmer’s Market of 2018 in Downtown Billings
The Farmer's Market happens from 9a - noon. Early birds get the best picks, but I find that prices typically get slashed in the last 1/2 hour of the event - I mean, who wants to load all that stuff back in their car and take it home?
School Bus Drivers Needed
I think things have changed quite a bit since I was a kid on the bus. I haven't been on one in years, but I have noticed when I see them on the roads the kids seem to not be running up and down the aisle, fighting or yelling out the window...big improvement.
