Fading Away
As we get ready for our big trip, I just thought of something that is slowly fading into the abyss.
Postcards.
No one sends them anymore.  Now its instant pictures, texts and videos. Places still sell them, but most people don't bother with them anymore...
Video Game Scholarships
The College of Great Falls will now be competing in the sport of video games at a NCAA level.  Yup, that's right. It is a sanctioned sport in college now and will offer 20 scholarships to put a team together.
Who said playing video games was a waste of time...
A Slip
Yesterday while I was feeding cows I slipped and fell on the ice, hitting my head.  Fortunately I wasn't hurt but if I would have been 80 it could have been worse.  I'm glad I don't walk with my hands in my pockets or I might have suffered a concussion...
I’m Ready
It's time for me to recharge my batteries. I really do look forward to the Flakes trip.  Most of you don't know what my days are like and I use most of my vacations to get work done on the ranch.
It's so nice to relax for a week, no schedules, no places to be etc...
Under Fire
President Trump is under fire for his comment yesterday calling these nations that are lawless, corrupt, out of control S__THoles, and we shouldn't allow these people in. Think of this over the weekend, what's worse; what he said or a President that rapes and sexually assaults and gets re-…
Color Coordinated
I see now the major home improvement stores have a color coordinated display. These displays give you about 16 colors that will all work with each other. You can coordinate paint, tile, carpet, siding, everything that works together. Now you don't have to take samples home...
Punish Them With Recess
School district 2 will consider a new policy that will allow kids being punished to go to recess. Brilliant, especially for the kids who are punished for not behaving properly during recess. I don't get it, reward them for improper behavior...
Gymnastics School
The city council made a mistake by not letting a family build a new gymnastics school on the west end. A business that would have been located where numerous other businesses are already thriving. It would have enhanced opportunities for families with kids on the west end...
Work Out
A lot of people join clubs in the new year so they can work out. It seems to me it would be easier to have a piece of equipment at home to do it at your convenience. No one watching and no distractions, no traveling, just you and 20 minutes and you're done...
In A Week
Last Sunday, I had 31 below zero with over 50 below wind chill factors. Tomorrow, it will be 42 degrees above zero, that’s about an 80-90 degree difference, no wonder everyone gets sick. However, 110 of us are glad we have time to get used to such a huge fluctuation in temperature...
Traffic Deaths
Last year, Montana finished with 186 traffic deaths. That's one of the best totals we have ever had; yet keep this in mind,136 of them were caused by alcohol, drugs or lack of seat belts. So many people didn't have to die but did. I don't wear my seat belt all of the time but I'm…
It’s A Ticket
Remember in Billings you are not allowed to start your car in your own driveway and let it warm up while you are in the house.  Dumb rule.
If it gets stolen, that's your own fault.  It's a free country, you should be able to warm your car up...
