Ken Burns’ Vietnam This Weekend
Emmy-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick bring an unpopular war to life starting this Sunday on PBS.  I love Ken Burns' work. His documentaries on Baseball and the Civil War are great.  Now he is releasing at 10 part 18 hour documentary on "The Vietnam War".…
Smoke It
This is my view out of my Studio.  Normally I can see the Beartooth Mountain Range.  I haven't been able to even see Laurel for what seems like weeks!  This smoke is getting old.  What we need is a good downpour.  We need it for a couple of reasons...
Jeff Terrified at First Day of School
Why are they taking my picture?  How come I'm not home playing with my bike?  What is my dog Buddy going to do all day without me?  Why did mom button my shirt all the way to the top?!!  Does Grandpa know I'm being held hostage in the brick building...

Just ran across the great book about Billings by James M. Rei...
Dillion or Dylan, Montana

Never before I have moved to an area with the same name as mine.  Did a little research and found out there is also a Dillion, S...
Who Plays the Piano in Downtown Billings?
How great is it that there is a piano just waiting to be played in downtown Billings? Do you play? I took piano lessons but had a horrible teacher so I never played again.  That's right, it was her fault.  Not mine.  Just because I didn't show up on time and never practiced.…
