The Breakfast Flakes

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...
40 Year Old Country Songs
On my Facebook feed, I saw a video showing some songs that I loved turn 40 this year. "last Dance" by Donna Summer (who I loved), "Dust In The Wind" by Kansas were just a couple.
So, if you're like me and can't believe how fast our lives are going by, ple…
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-…
Going To Mexico “Don’t Forget” List
This is just MY list of stuff to remember. Add to it if you like. Or adopt it to help you remember what to pack.

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...
The Flashing Yellow Arrows
Several traffic lights in Billings have been updated with the lights that have a flashing yellow arrow. I'm still unsure what it means. I'm older now, and my brain isn't very accepting of new technology.
On my smartphone, I can now talk to Google, and she goes and finds me things...
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...
