Munthly, Weakly…

…and following in the tradition of such blockbusters as the School That Couldn’t Spell Straight comes this example from the Flamingo (or, as I like to call it, the Flaming O): (click image for bigger view)


Homecoming Ideas?

Ryan Smartt left a lengthy comment on an earlier entry that probably deserves front-page exposure: Hey guys and gals, I’m 19 and have lived in Great Falls for my whole life. in the years that I have lived here I have heard of numerous deployments of our military men and women stationed around the GF area.
