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).
National Read A Book Day
My 10 year old daughter and I recently started reading Treasure Island and will hopefully finish it before her teen years. Reading is one of the best mental exercises you can do to keep your brain sharp, so I'm really hoping that she decides to make reading a life long habit.
Security at the Double Tree for the POTUS
There will definitely be some frustrated drivers in Billings today (9/6/2018), but do your best to be patient. Here at the Double Tree hotel, visitors are going through a TSA style checkpoint and you will notice lots of suits, ties, guns and earpieces in the lobby (I was afraid to take their picture…
Trump’s Visit To Billings – What You Need To Know
We received this note from Metra Park regarding the President's appearance. As you would expect, parking will be an issue, especially for those with disabilities.
Meet McDonald’s Newest Employees
Today was the first time I used one of these kiosks to place an order at McDonald's. At this time, there is still what appears to be a full staff of people at the registers, but I'm guessing the end game is to eliminate those people on the front line. This kind of stuff upsets some peopl…
The Luckiest Buck In Billings
I'm sure he doesn't realize he's living in a no-kill zone, but I think the only deer who has it better would be the ones who have happened to wander into Zoo Montana. Even though his location makes him off limits, he's gotta be pretty tempting for your average hunter.
Another Casting Call For Yellowstone Extras
They're looking for people aged 16 years or older and no experience is necessary. I'd guess most of us would do it for free if we had to chance to be on a TV Show, but this is a paying job. You can expect to earn 114-150 per day of filming.
Best Authentic Mexican Food In Billings
The ambiance isn't fancy, so if you're looking for a private booth and a Mariachi band, it might not be what you're looking for, but it's simple and clean with some tasty eats. Perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch.
Own A Castle In The Heights
If you're a long time resident who is familiar with the backstory, please feel free to leave it in the comments. If you're a fan of binge watching Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, or anything set it medieval times, perhaps this is the home of your dreams.
The Montana Bicycle Law That No One Follows
I'm a believer in the "Share The Road" movement and don't typically complain about bicyclists; however, I was almost hit twice today while walking on the sidewalk in downtown Billings. I say "almost hit" meaning that someone on a bicycle whizzed passed me from behind c…
Yes I Can
I still think it's important to not let these old school methods die out or associate them with "Doomsday Preppers". When I was growing up, many members of my family got the bulk of their food from their own garden. They weren't "prepping" for anything, it was just pa…
A New Way To Pick Something To Watch On Netflix
Netflix Roulette allows you to select a genre of movie or TV show, along with a minimum IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes score. Once you've entered your criteria you're just a click away from watching...something. I think it's a pretty cool idea. It's like back in the day when you were…
Thermostat Wars: Let The Games Begin
If you're one of those people who feels the need to crank the heat up when the outside temp drops below 70....STOP IT!
