I-phone 8
Sitting here, searching for a blog topic. How about this? I recently switched to an iPhone 8. And one of the apps is "My Altitude". I am currently sitting at 3,140. 39 feet above sea level as I sit at the Cat Country control board.
I can also enter my scores on my phone after each r…
Clean Your Room/Car
Growing up, my mom demanded that my room was clean. That meant all laundry picked up, dusting any furniture that needed it and removing all dishes missing from the kitchen and usually found under my bed.
But, my dad was also very insistent that my car didn't look like I was living in it...
You Aren’t Allowed To Watch Your Kids Golf
As it currently stands in Montana, if your child is playing in a high school golf tournament, you are not allowed to watch them play. Really?
And now the Rocky Mountain PGA has written a letter to the Montana High School Association to change the rule...
Almost Quit Today
So, our computer that controls what actually goes out over the airwaves, went crazy today and wouldn't let me do things the regular way. So, I thought (jokingly) that I was just going to walk out the door and go work some place else.
I've got a problem though...
My Favorite Bike
Thanks to a post by Jay Burns on Facebook this morning, showing an old bike. it jolted my memory of my old "Aerobee Stingray".
It was beautiful. Handlebars that looked like they belonged on a chopper motorcycle. Black seat with a twin yellow pinstripe...
Best Advice
I got a call from a young relative last night, asking my advice on a couple of things. I gave her options no matter which way she chose to go. She said that my advice didn't really help her make a choice. And I told her that it's usually never just a simple decision...
Sprinkler Head Repair Needed
This is sort of a public service announcement for the owners of Holiday in the heights. One of your sprinkler heads shoots water straight up into the air. Every morning at quarter to 5.
And I only mention this because it was doing this LAST year and apparently never got fixed...
Golf Gadgets
Every time I go golfing, it's a little like moving from one house to another. I grab my clubs, sunscreen, iPod touch (with custom made playlists for that particular round and tailored to the people that I'm golfing with that day), Bluetooth speaker, range finder watch, laser range finder, …
Ryan Dam
This morning I re-posted an aerial photo of Ryan Dam because it's a view of it that I'd never seen before.
Ryan Dam is a great little spot to spend a few hours. Now, the drive out to it from Great Falls doesn't LOOK like you're heading into a garden spot...

From 5-12 midnight tonight, Hooligans will donate 20% of all food and drink sales to Curtis...
So Long, Sears
Sears announced the closing of the Billings store. Sad, but not surprising. Commerce is different now. You can get just about anything delivered to your front door.
In my lifetime, our family has purchased everything from record albums to bikes to rifles at Sears...
Battery Operated Tools
Do you own any battery operated tools?
I've had a drill for years that I like, but recently bought a hedge trimmer and I love it. No more dragging 200 feet of cords around the yard on a 100 degree day. (Before eventually cutting the cord accidentally)
Do you own some of these...
