Could This Be The New Montana Farm Truck?
Most of the people I know who actually use their truck as a tool to do serious work are pretty pretty brand loyal. Ford, Ram, GMC...whatever camp they're in, it's typically not easy to talk them out of it. However, I'm wondering how many people would switch teams if the Tesla truck de…
GPS Sends Almost 100 Drivers To The Middle of A Field
If I were stuck in traffic and my phone told me it had a plan to get me out, I might throw a Hail Mary and go for it no matter how weird it seemed (hey..at least we're moving, right?) - but it's a good reminder that you can't just blindly follow the advice of technology (even Google g…
Fake Owl Vs. Real Snakes
My sister lives in South Carolina and she was having issues with Copperheads in her yard. Those things are not only poisonous, but can be aggressive; definitely not a snake you want to encounter while walking barefoot through your backyard. She bought a few of these fake owls and put them up along…
Is Gluten Free Worth The Money?
Is it a benefit to spend the extra cash to try to avoid these evil glutens? Well, let me be clear that I am not a doctor and it's not my intention to dish out medical advice, but many of the smart folks who are qualified say that there are no real benefits to most people. If you have celiac …
How Early Do You Really Need To Be At Billings Airport
Most airlines tell you to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to departure and for many airports, that is sound advice. As for our airport here in Billings, I had gotten a little spoiled - showing up only 45 minutes before departure and still spending 30 minutes of that waiting at the gate.
Don't be Satisfied With Kitten-less Yoga
If you have an aversion to cats, you might be excited to know that Dog Yoga and Goat Yoga are practiced as well. On the other hand, if you're a cat lover who likes to bend your body in weird positions while trying not to fart, you should definitely attend this event.
You Don't Need A Fancy Ride for a Good Time
I don't know who was driving it, but here's what I imagine his day was like. He figured he couldn't let such a nice Saturday go by without doing some fishing. He throws his gear on this beat up beast and heads out to a convenience store to grab the fishing necessities: live bait and…
"Dad Skills" On The Decline
My dad has taught me a lot over the years. He's still better than I am at pretty much all of it, but the basic "dad skill" I have, I owe to him. Apparently, these little things I take for granted are on the decline across the country.
Carnival At Rimrock Mall
I've loved carnivals since back when I thought being a carnie was probably the greatest job in the world. These days, even though I question the safety of the rides and the life choices of some of the employees, I still get a nostalgic feeling wandering around and will probably ride a few thing…
Who's The Packrat In Your Family?
She doesn't want to part with anything. I put things in the pile to sell and as soon as she notices it's, "Hey, you can't sell that. I love that!", even though it's been in her closet, untouched, for two years.
Prairie Dogs As Pets?
They can damage crops, but their tunnels can lead to issues with livestock as well. I was reading this article which discusses the pros and cons of prairie dogs. In the article, a Texas veterinarian says there are three or four times a year where he has to treat or euthanize a horse or cattle that …
Will Pence's Visit Help Billings' Meth Problem?
Will Pence's visit on Wednesday (6/12/19) help Meth addiction in our state? The quick answer is no. The visit itself won't do anything, which is why I am hoping he lays out an actionable plan that makes sense. This problem isn't just a Montana issue, it's an American epidemic. I…
Disgusting Treatment of Cattle
I don't normally share videos like this, but we have so many Montanans who work with cattle I really want to hear their opinion. Is this normal? Have you witnessed anything like this before? I have no shame in being a carnivore, but the guys in this video look like heartless sociopaths.
Billings Castle On The Market
If you put 20% down, you're looking at monthly payments of just over $82,000. It's just a little out of my reach, but for the select few who could use and can afford a castle (or want to see additional photos), here is the official listing.
