Howdy! My name is David. I’ve lived in Great Falls since 2002. I love it here. Seriously.


I’ve been blogging since October 2000 in one form or another; used to be over at Better Living Thru Blogging, which was located at, but eventually let it go in 2008. And shortly after I moved to Montana, I created the Big Sky Blog (now defunct), which was the first multi-user collaborative blog about All Things Montana.

And then in May 2005, I created in order to integrate two things that I love: blogging and Great Falls. It’s true: I do love this community. You see, I was raised as an Air Force brat, and then spent 20 years in the military myself, so I never had the same address for more than three years in my entire life.

But then I arrived in Great Falls. Never in my life have I met such friendly, honest people, or lived in such a beautiful community, or enjoyed such wonderful scenery and weather (all four seasons!). Literally within days of arriving here back in 2002, I experienced something that I had never felt before: a sense of home. This is the only place that I’ve ever lived or visited that felt like home to me. Quite a powerful feeling.

So I suppose you could think of as my personal “fan club” for the community of Great Falls. I invite you to visit this site often to see what’s going on, and to leave comments on entries that interest you.

Got some breaking news, or a suggestion for an entry, or want to praise or complain? Let me know! david AT

Got married in 1977 and lived in Great Falls from 1977 to 1978.We lived at 724 1st Ave South for a year, then left for Utah July 31, 1978, and have wished we could move back as soon as possible. We loved the people and the town. We hope it hasn’t changed much.
