Bikers In Billings Remind People To Share The Road
Driving down 24th street today I saw a bunch of bikers holding signs advising people to "Look Three Times".  Sounds like a smart plan to me.  Montana is such a beautiful place to ride, but so many drivers seem to paint the bikes invisible...
Nitro Circus Star Keith Sayers Coming To Our Studios
Keith Sayers, one of the amazing performers from Nitro Circus, will be talking to Hot Rod Thompson next week.
Not only is Keith known for his death defying motorcycle acrobatics, but he's also a native Montanan.  He was raised in Butte and has been riding since he was aged 9...
I Wish The King Had Two Hats [Opinion]
I've often made fun of the Starbucks addicts who wait in ridiculously long lines to get their Vente Mocha Double Shot Half Caf whatevers.  I think to myself, "Why not just go 30 seconds up the street to one of the five other coffee places...
What Business Would You Like To See In Place Of K-Mart?
By now, most residents have heard the news that K-Mart will be closing. Given the typical emptiness of the parking lot, it's not exactly shocking news. Whenever a business closes shop, I always think of the employees and what it's like for them knowing the end is coming in a matter of week…
If You Know How To Pronounce Royce, You Should Check This Out
I know MMA is a common term now and most people have heard of the UFC even if they're not a fan.  There was, however a much different time for this sport and people like me could only find it at their local video store.

I am a believer that rehabilitation for self-destructive crimes, l…
When Was Your First Trip to Softies in Billings?
Softies:  Enemy of the low-carb diet and hero to the ice cream lovers in Billings.  Not too many tiny, seasonal businesses survive for more than half a century, but Softies is one of the sweet exceptions.
My guess is that unless you are over 60 years old, you won't remember how old you…
Billings’ Rose Park Arsonist Still at Large
I'm sure I am not the only one who is bummed out about what happened to Rose Park last week.  My daughter and I have had many fun days there, but I'm not sure if we'll have the option this summer.  If they have to get the building repaired in order to allow access to the poo…
Will You Have a Garden This Year?
According to Google, Montana is the second highest ranking state for searches pertaining to gardening. Obviously, we have plenty of room as a state, but for those in Billings proper, especially the apartment dwellers, it's a bit more of a challenge...
Do Your Kids Believe in Their Elf On a Shelf?
Elf On A Shelf is one of the best holiday investments I've ever made. I am guessing that, sadly, this will be the last year my little girl believes in this elf and how it magically flies around at night. Of course, once she stops believing, it will stop flying...
Five Great Gifts to Send From Montana
For those who, like me, have family outside of this glorious state, I thought it would be cool to look at some "Montana Gifts" to ship out this Christmas. I think I came up with a few ideas that are much cooler than Montana sweatshirts or souvenir mugs...
