The Breakfast Flakes

I’m A Child At Heart
Being young at heart is a blessing. I require attention and should never be left unattended at any time.
When we go to a place that takes your food order, then asks for your name to call when it's ready, I tell them that my name is "Elvis"...
Billings Gasoline
I overspend on my vehicle maintenance. I always run the 91 octane premium in everything from my pickup on down to my leaf blower. But, I know nothing about the 3 refineries in our area.
Does Conoco outperform Exxon? Or does Cenex have the good stuff...
Riding Shotgun
Whenever I take my dog with me, he always gets the front seat. Don't know what I would do without a dog. They're the best and it doesn't take them long to get ready to go either......just kidding.
Snow Melters
Now that the city has brand new snow melters to use in the winter, maybe we can buy a couple giant sponges to use in the summer. That way we can collect all the rain water before it runs in the storm drains.Then we can buy a couple big air fresheners during forest fire season to clean the air before…
Camp On The Boulder
I'm not a real "churchy" guy, but I was glad to hear the news about the Camp On The Boulder. I spent a week there with other kids in my youth group in 1978. And it's one of my fondest memories from my teenage years.
The camp is a place where "faith based camping c…
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 "…
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.
Under Fire
President Trump is under fire for his comment yesterday calling these nations that are lawless, corrupt, out of control S__THoles, and we shouldn't allow these people in. Think of this over the weekend, what's worse; what he said or a President that rapes and sexually assaults and gets re-…
3 Weeks Today
It was 3 weeks ago when my dog Ike got busted up we think from a PMS heifer.  He's still in the vet clinic but doing better.  His staples were removed yesterday and no infection, good news.
 
I really need my dog back. I’ve noticed I'm really getting soft on th…
