Bison Bison!

The design for the soon-to-be-minted Montana state quarter has been announced, following weeks of online voting…and the winner is our beloved Bison Skull! Hmmmm…wonder if Bison Ford might be able to use this in some sort of promotional campaign…?


Cycles & Swimming

Some “public service announcements” to make here on behalf of Walter, a regular commenter, and Tim Austin, a concerned citizen. First up: bicycle & pedestrian safety!
