Paris Gibson graduation ceremony

Attended the Paris Gibson graduation ceremony last night – it was cool to see so many happy, proud kids (and families!). The guest speaker was Governor Schweitzer, which was neat. Best of all – he brought Jag! While Schweitzer was speaking, Jag just curled up on the gym floor next to him and took a nap for the duration of the speech. When the governor was done, I hustled to get a picture of Jag;…


Messages From Afghanistan

One of my friends from my Malmstrom days, Nancy, spent the better part of her last year of AF service deployed to Afghanistan; she’s an amazing lady, and now she’s published a book about her experience. She retired from the Air Force a few months after I did, and now lives in Fort Benton. Here’s the e-mail explaining more: I recently published a book about my time in Afghanistan called MESSAGES FROM AFGHANISTAN. It is…

Here’s the lineup: Morning – Laura Ingraham: fair to middling. Not great, but she’s got personality and can be somewhat…

RIP, Teddy Pendergrass

When I heard that Teddy Pendergrass had passed away this week, I was very sad – arguably one of the best voices ever in the R&B world. And a passing that, to me, closes a special chapter in American music. Marvin, Luther, Isaac, Barry, James, and now Teddy – all gone now. But since shutting down my original Better Living Through Blogging site a while back, I’ve limited my official blogging to, well, Great Falls,…
