Tribune Cheers (+1 jeer)

Three cheers for the Great Falls Tribune – they did a great job on the “micro-site” that they created about Walter Breuning. It’s got a timeline, highlighting key events in Walter’s life and how it related to current events at the time; several videos and pictures; and links to previous articles. And in a show of good sportsmanship, given the historic nature of Walter becoming the oldest living man in the world, they even included…


Free BBQ!

This is cool: on Saturday, August 15, from noon until 2:30 pm at Gibson Park, you can enjoy some free BBQ and learn more about how you can help Great Falls.

And good news: Starbucks is going to begin serving breakfast sandwiches today (Tuesday)! I sampled one the other day…

Mad props to Wulfgar, who traveled up (down?) from Bozeman to share some wisdom on the subject of “Expectations” in the world of blogging. He and GeeGuy spearheaded some interesting discussions among the assembled geeks – notably about the use and abuse of anonymity and pseudonyms. And Wulfgar,…


Two New Blogs + Blog Meet

A couple of new blogs to mention (and be sure to check out more Great Falls blogs)! Great Falls Electric City is a semi-newish site from Seth Metoyer, who some of you may know from following him on Twitter (@sethmetoyer). WedgeBlog is the brainchild of Claire Baiz (@MT_Writer), who I was fortunate to meet at last week’s Tweetup. In addition to being the proprietor of Big Sky Gold, she also penned a very sweet note…
