Homemade Halloween Costumes
If you're one of those who go the DIY route either for you or your kids, please share some of your biggest successes or disasters. Scary, funny, topical or vintage, the homemade suits that my daughter and I encounter on Wednesday, 10/31, will be more memorable than the sea of Black Panther stu…
Netflix's New Binge Worthy / Cringe Worthy Show: The Haunting Of
Right off the bat I will say that this series has minimal gore, which is exactly what I was looking for. I've got nothing against a good bloody horror movie; in fact, I look forward to the new Halloween move in theaters later this week. I was just in the mood for a mostly psychological thrill…
Rams Homecoming Tonight
The Central Rams are having their pre-game party from 5p-6:30 tonight at Vetran's Park Shelter. Food is from Fuddruckers and adults can get a meal for $8. Students eat for $5
Billings Biggest Halloween Party: Purgatory 3
The ultimate Halloween party is back for it's third installment October 26th and 27th. Purgatory 3 happens across 4 different venues over two nights. One of the venues is at MetraPark and that is the only one of the 4 that is 18 and up. Everything else (Petroleum Club, Red Door and Daisy Duk…
Most Adults Believe In Ghosts?
I have to admit, I find it strange when I meet an adult who has a fear of ghosts. For me, ghosts fall into the category of elves, fairies, monsters, trolls, etc. Today I learned that the majority of adults (60%) believe in ghosts and 40% of those people believe their pets are able to see ghosts. …
Getting Your Kids To Brush Correctly
This skill, known as Chompers, is basically a two minute kid-friendly podcast designed to be listened to while brushing. It will give them a basic instruction e.g. "little circles on your top teeth" and then distract them with some jokes, riddles or trivia all the while having them change…
Working At Billings' New Winco
I found a couple of videos on youtube which might give you an idea of what it's like to work for them. One is from Winco and the other video is from a former employee who worked for them for 16 years. From the looks of these videos, I would say that if you are in the market for a job, or are …
Huggers Are Happier
. The report itself didn't mean much to me, but it did make me think about the people I've encountered who always want to hug. As I was picturing these serial huggers in my mind's eye, I noticed a commonality...all of them are always smiling. I'm sure you know one of these typ…
Last Farmer's Market of 2018 in Downtown Billings
The Farmer's Market happens from 9a - noon. Early birds get the best picks, but I find that prices typically get slashed in the last 1/2 hour of the event - I mean, who wants to load all that stuff back in their car and take it home?
School Bus Drivers Needed
I think things have changed quite a bit since I was a kid on the bus. I haven't been on one in years, but I have noticed when I see them on the roads the kids seem to not be running up and down the aisle, fighting or yelling out the window...big improvement.
Who's Got Your Favorite Tacos In Billings
It's National Taco Day and I thought it would be a nice to give a shout out to my favorite place to get Tacos in Billings. The problem is picking a favorite. Honestly, it kind of depends on my mood, but I can definitely share my top picks:
National Boyfriend Day
Since every day of the year has to be at least five different "Something" Day's, today happens to be National Boyfriend Day. According to questionable statics that litter the internet, only about 40% of girlfriends even know there is such a thing and only an even smaller percentage of…
The Scariest Ghost Movie Ever
For the record, Poltergeist did a number on me too as a kid, but The Changeling just has this campfire story quality to it that makes it more appealing. As a kid, I hated to even look at the VHS Cover featuring the creepy antique wheelchair and shadow of a child who wasn't there. Spooky!
Montana's Most Googled Medical Symptom
Here are some states I'm glad I don't live in:

Wisconsin "light colored poop."
Idaho "symptoms of E. coli."
Nebraska "signs of low testosterone."
South Carolina "dark green stool."
Indiana "uncircumcised problems."
How To Turn A Disgusting Vegetable Into A Delicious Treat
I'm not sure where okra ranks in popularity in the U.S., but I can't imagine it's anywhere near the top of the list. It doesn't have a lot of flavor and it's slimy....Good to thicken a gumbo, but not so good to snack on. So, how do you make it delicious? Bread it and fry …
FCC Fines Robocallers for Caller ID Spoofing
You've likely received a call from a 406 number (sometimes one that's really close to your own number to compel you to answer) only to find out that it was some telemarketing call. Perhaps you have also been on the other end where your number was used as one of these fake caller id's…

Do You Wipe Your Pet's Butt?
A friend of mine is heading out of town soon and asked if I would look in on her cat. "No problem", I said. I mean, typically cats don't take a lot of work. Just make sure they have the essentials, maybe empty the box and you're good; or so I thought. After I agreed she told me t…
Teacher Fired For Giving Zeroes
a 52-year-old woman named Diane Tirado, in Florida who was allegedly fired for giving out zeroes to kids who don't turn in their homework seems outrageous to me. Apparently the school has a policy that you can't issue grades below 50%. Which means the grades are ACTUALLY 0-50% instead of 0…
