Singing Valentines In Billings
I called the number listed on the tear-off tab of their flyer and it goes to an answering machine (I would say voicemail, but this might be an actual answering machine). According to the message, you simply need to leave your name and number and they will call you back to arrange your singing valen…
Dedications on Valentine's Day
When I first got into radio, dedications were a big deal. We would do hours of them in a row. Of course, the problem with that is that you end up with a lot of mushy back-to-back ballads. Regardless, I'm bringing them back Thursday for Valentine's Day.
CDA Weekend Getaway
Coeur d'Alene Resort can be on the spendy side, but if you shop in the off season, you're likely to come up with some decent deals. Of course the trade off is that many of the lake activities (mainly the tour boats and sea plane) aren't available this time of year
My Hometown Hero: Rodney Atkins
I can remember Mark telling me that the guys would poke fun at Rodney because he would sing loudly in the locker room, sometimes playing his guitar and talking about how he was going to make it in Nashville someday. Well, Rodney got the last laugh and has some great, time tested hits to his credit.
Ever Wished You Would've Called a Pro?
With tons of DIY shows and books and of course countless videos on Youtube teaching us everything from dishwasher repair to brain surgery, many of us are going the do-it-yourself route for a lot of projects.
Eastwood's "The Mule" Showing at The Babcock Theater
I've never seen a movie at the Babcock Theater and this is the film that will likely get my butt in the seat this weekend. I'm a big Clint Eastwood fan and this movie looks like it will deliver. I must confess, I didn't watch the full trailer because I'm not a fan of spoilers. …
Shoplifting Just Keeps Getting Tougher
In a world full of cameras and alarms, I imagine it's tough being a shoplifter. I was in Albertsons today and was told by the check out lady that I would need to back up and let her login to her register, then bring the cart forward again. Apparently, it needs to be acknowledged that the cart…
How I'm Ensuring The Patriots Will Not Win
For the last several years, I've had a friendly bet on the big game with a guy in Kentucky. We grew up together and for as long as I've known him, he has never had any interest in football. Since he doesn't know the Browns from the Bears, he always lets me take my pick for the bet. …
Assisted Suicide In Montana
Assisted suicide has been "kind of legal" in Montana since 2009. I say "kind of" because it's somewhat of a loophole that demands the patient must perform the final act that results in death. There's a new bill out that seeks to stop that loophole and ban physician ass…
Do We Really Need "Fuel Gloves"?
It seems strange to me that in a world which is condemning people for using straws, we are producing a brand new plastic, disposable product that is not nearly as useful as a straw.
What's Your Kid's Most Expensive Hobby?
Dance is my girl's thing. I am grateful that she has something that she works to get better at. It's good physical exercise and has many lessons (dedication, reward, etc.) that translate into lifelong, beneficial concepts. However...IT'S EXPENSIVE! Not only the tuition costs, but …
Lucky's Market Gives Lunch To Government Employees
Today we got news that the government will reopen. Although it is potentially a temporary (3 week) situation, it does mean that many government employees will be receiving some much needed relief in the form of the paychecks that they had already earned.
Taking Your Kid To See Jeff Dunham?
I've never seen the live show in person, but from watching the clips, I'm inclined to say 12 and up have probably heard this stuff unless you run a really tight ship. There is the occasional curse word which doesn't bother me, but the sexual innuendo might be a little over the top for…
