The Breakfast Flakes

Not Impressed
I guess I was expecting more during yesterday's halftime show. I'd give it a 5 at best. I really tried to like it, but I couldn't understand any of the words he was singing. Lady Gaga had some great songs last year and you could actually hear the words she was singing...
So Long, Big Bear
I heard the news over the weekend about Big Bear never reopening. And it's sad news for a couple of reasons.
This has been a great local business for a long time. I bough the only pair of skis that I've ever owned there about 20 years ago...
All Things Mexico
In case you haven't heard all of our stories about this year's adventures on our Flakestrip, I'll give you the highlights.
Left a day early to beat the snow in Minnesota. The Beatles tribute show with the stage in the pool. Larry's "Cannonball" from the "…
Only Way To Go
We flew First Class on this year's Flakes trip and it's the only way to go. I don't have a problem with Coach if it's under a hundred minutes or so, but 3, 4, or 5 hours...wow, it makes the trip less exhausting. Now I'm spoiled and it will be hard to travel any other way...
Heart Month 2018
February is American Heart Month. For you north of town, it's not because Valentine's Day is in February. The reason is to raise awareness of the seriousness of high blood pressure and heart disease, the numero uno killer in America. People think that mine must be through the roof, ac…
No Place Like Home
Every time we go on a trip somewhere, I am so glad to get home. The U.S. has more going for it than anywhere in the world. I like vacations, but I love the place I call home.
Big Dilemma
My biggest dilemma next Monday is do I want to eat French, Italian or Mexican food first. That's about the most pressing issue you have if you go on the Flakes trip.
Hope the weather is great for all of you while we are gone. Be back soon with stories and memories from Mexico...
Secrets Capri
We got this picture sent to us this morning from a lady who's with our group, but got to the resort a few days ahead of us.
All the rubbing it in aside, I am thankful for the chance to go on these trips each year. Every year when we arrive, I walk down to the beach and stand there and listen to …
Old Friends
We talked about best friends on our show yesterday. And today is the birthday of a guy who has always been a best friend and now can also be put in the "old friends" category.
Jeff Austin and I met while we were attending the same church in Great Falls in about 1976...
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...
Whose Music Don’t You Get?
I announced that I had heard a rumor  that Pearl Jam would be playing a concert at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in August of this year. Which, for me is a non-factor, because I'm not a Pearl jam fan. It's not that I dislike them, I just am not familiar with much of their music
