The Breakfast Flakes

5 Feet High and Rising
As you can see, I'm already having problems with runoff. It's only going to get worse this week, so, get ready. There is an old saying that water always wins and it's true. It will be over soon and green grass is on the way. Finally.......
Bay City Rollers
This goes back several years ago when Paul & I got on the topic of the band, the Bay City Rollers.
This was pre-Facebook and we got quite a few calls about folks from Great Falls, who were at their show at the grand stands at the fairgrounds in Great Falls in about 1978ish.

Pizza Night
Looks like Papa John's and I are friends again after they dropped their NFL sponsorship. So, tonight, it's Papa John's, NCAA basketball, and a good spot on the couch with my dog. Have a good weekend, see ya Monday at 5 unless FHD strikes again...
Toys R Us Closing
Time marches on and is now claiming another fatality, by closing Toys R Us.
I haven't shopped there in many years, but I still hate to see them go. I have taken nieces and nephews in there and let them pick out their own presents.
I bought Nintendo 64 games there 20 years ago...
School Protests
Now that school district 2 has established new protocol for student protests, how will they stop future violations of class attendance? Will it only depend on the cause and if it reflects their political mind set? Will the kids be able to walk out on 4/20, the nationally recognized holiday for …
King for a Day
There's a song called "King For Just One Day" by the Thompson Twins that led me to my blog topic today.

FHD epidemic
You people thought I was kidding when I came up with the medical term FHD. Well, my partner was struck by it this morning. It is real and is very prevalent right now. Keep your hands clean and watch it or it will be introducing itself to you soon...
No Mexico
The State Dept. has issued a travel warning for Americans traveling to Playa Del Carmen. The recent explosion on a ferry to Cozumel is just the latest incident to bring about the warning. Just FYI, we will not be going back to Mexico any time soon for our Flakes trip...
Yellowstone County Spelling Bee
This was the twentieth year that Paul & I have been associated with the bee.
We've done the event at Petro Theatre, Billings West Highs auditorium, the Skyviews, and this year at the Lincoln Center.
We sit on the side of the stage where we get a birds eye view of the process.

Pot Holes
Where are you? I know that you are out there waiting for me and my perfect alignment. Waiting to ruin it.
Are you hiding under some ice on a side street? Are you on one of the main roads that I travel, hoping that the sun will blind me, so you can do your worst...
