The Breakfast Flakes

Children On Drugs
A report released Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services revealed that about a third of kids are now on some type of psychiatric drug. More alarming is the fact that it usually comes with no treatment plan or doctor follow-up...
Beet Truck Season
Huge, lumbering, but slow moving beet trucks are going to be on the area roads for the next few weeks. And you've got to be aware.
They move slow, because they are full of beets. Tons and tons of them. And in today's "road rage" world, you're just going to have to let…
No Anthems
Have you noticed that at the start of the televised NFL games they are no longer showing the National Anthem? The NFL is in damage control right now and it's showing. The opening game this year the viewership was down 13%. Yesterday for the first time in 50 years the Washington Redskins di…
Doing Without
I am as spoiled as anybody that I know. We have just about every luxury one can possibly imagine.
But, while loading the dishwasher yesterday, our 11 year olds jaw hit the floor when I told her that when I was a kid, we never had a dishwasher...
Summer Vacation
We're back to work after a couple of weeks off. I traveled quite a bit, seeing both Portland to the west and Mt Rushmore to the East.
While we were away, Burt Reynolds died. As did Ed King. He wrote the music for "Sweet Home Alabama"...
Room With A View
Really foggy today in Billings. The only thing you could see this morning on the rims was the control tower. We do have a great room with a view! By the way we are going on vacation for a few weeks, so when we get back we'll get to work giving you a chance for a trip of a lifetime with a v…
Lazy
I know a thing or two about being lazy. After all, I was once a teenage boy. And lazy appealed to me. So, I know lazy when I see it.
And this picture is the epitome of lazy. You couldn't push the cart 5 feet around the rail so it wouldn't block a parking place...
State Sport
California has just made surfing their official state sport. I was wondering what Montana's would be? It would have to be the most popular among its residents. Perhaps skiing, fishing, hunting? Then it hit me, it’s probably drinking. Yeah it's definitely drinking, at least …
Is It Worse these Days?
Today’s blog is really just more of a survey. Do you think that today’s drivers are more aggressive? I mean, there have always been people who zip in and out of traffic. But do you think the percentage of drivers on the roads drive more aggressively while being more l…
Start Of School
It seems like all the schools are starting at different times now. It would seem to me that if all public schools were on the same schedule, it would help to make things safer. Everyone would know when a kid should be out and when they should be in...
Hunters Safety Classes
With the kids headed back to school, it's also time to get them signed up for Hunters Safety classes. Which is easier to do than ever before, due to technology. And you don't have to be a kid. There are classes for the grown-ups as well...
Friday Randomness
Got stung by a wasp yesterday while golfing. It didn't affect my swing. I was still able to hit a tree quite a ways in.
I was in line at a fast food restaurant when I heard the interaction at the drive thru window. "I'm sorry ma'am, but your card was declined"...
