National Teacher Appreciation Day
I'm not sure exactly what one does for a teacher on National Teacher Appreciation Day, so I'm blogging about the day.
If you're a teacher, you have many things you can take advantage of.
Deals on rentals at Alamo, discounts at AT&T, and many casinos and resorts are vying for you…
Do Not Delay
While sending in my mail-in ballot, I noticed a message on the front to the post office that says "Official ballot. Do Not Delay." It made me wonder why we need that; is there mail that they do delay? If so, why?
If two pieces require one stamp why does one get better delivery than …
Beers On Patios
With the warmer weather here, we can get back to having an icy cold beverage outdoors on one of the many patios that serve alcohol in our area.
I'm not doing a "Best Of" patio list; rather, a list of cool spots to go in our area. Tiny's, The Montana Brewing Company, and th…
One Big RS
The Big Sky center torch bearers are in Allentown, Pennsylvania loading themselves with ammo; so, when they come back to Billings, they can tell us how it will all work.
What they won't tell you is that you have to be 67 miles from Philadelphia and 80 miles from New York city to help make it wor…
Facebook Fights and Activism
As I stared at that computer screen at 3 in the dang morning, I had to decide what kind of social media day I would have. I saw posts concerning illegal immigration, voting for more school levies vs laying off employees, and about 3 or 4 anti-gun blogs...
Old Works Golf
I went to Anaconda last weekend to play the fabled Old Works golf course. I hadn't played there in several years and wanted to be sure to play there this year.
While there, I locked my keys in my pickup. There is ONE locksmith in the Anaconda phone book...
Trump’s Affair
Is there anyone out there who is surprised that Trump had an affair 12 years ago? Hell no.
What about Bill and Hillary, now I'm sure they have not had sex with each other since 1994, so are you telling me that these normal humans have not had sex in the last 25 years...
2nd Amendment Walkout
Is anyone aware of the 16 minute walkout planned at schools around the country today?
High schools will celebrate the 2nd amendment in unison at 10 o'clock. Now, why haven't we received a letter from school district 2 celebrating this teaching moment and lesson about free speech..…
Mark’s Tools
I'm not any type of handyman. At all. I don't have the knack of fixing anything. But yesterday, I got out several of my tools.
Take a look at the picture and see if you can figure out what job I was doing.
Chase Hawks Bike Day
This past Saturday, April 28th, Chase Hawks held their annual Bike Day at the Albertsons on 5th and Central.
Here are this year's stats:
They gave away 46 brand new bicycles that they first had to assemble on Friday night.
They fitted 108 kids with brand new helmets...
Tester Allegations
Well, Tehran Jon did it again. He just threw a highly decorated Navy admiral veteran under the bus. This Washington DC made millionaire is now in hiding until they figure out how to repair the damage.
I will stick up for Tester though, I can guarantee you that he has never had sex with a Playboy mode…
Brining
I'm big on barbecuing and cooking our meals on our Traeger grill. In fact, I whipped up a sugar free glaze for our inch thick pork chops.
As I was looking up recipes last week, I ran across an article on brining. This is supposed to make tough cuts of meat more juicy and tender...
