Family Affair

We enjoyed lunch on Friday at the Family Affair restaurant — our first time there!

It’s tucked along the east side of the Snyder’s/Van’s building along 7th Avenue North between 25th and 26th Street. It’s small inside — only 11 tables, very cozy. Nothing fancy — just home-cooked meals. The waitress said that they have been there for 40 years, but based on talking with some friends and co-workers, it’s pretty much a hidden gem — not a lot of people know about it.

So I recently made the mistake of adding Greg Strandberg of Big Sky Words to the blogroll because he seems like a decent writer and such, but after he demonstrated this bit of jackassery, his site has now been removed from the roll.


The point is that one reporter (based in Helena, whose “beat” is Montana politics) researched and wrote the story, and that story then aired on MTN News stations across the state and was published on MTN News websites (such as and, etc). The “N” in MTN stands for NETWORK, which apparently is too high-minded a concept for some people to understand.

I asked him if he was similarly upset about Associated Press (AP) stories that are printed verbatim in virtually all Montana newspapers and on Montana newspaper websites, but haven’t heard back from him.

…and speaking of personalized license plate — I stopped by the Townhouse Inn on Friday to check on the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, and of course saw this license plate in the parking lot.

Ack. Typos happen, I know — but getting the name wrong of your own sponsored event is awkward!

“Want Women Want” sounds like some sort of cavemen-esque plea.

Never quite imagined that Great Falls would be a target audience for a team of “flippers,” but…well, maybe it is.

Mike “The Flip Man” Baird from Spike’s hit show, Flip Men, and Greg “The Bank” Herlean have teamed up to build one of the fastest growing and most profitable real estate investing businesses in the country. Now, Mike and Greg have turned their strategies for investing into an educational program that has helped people, just like you, start their own real estate business. The Property Bank team is coming to the Great Falls area to present a live training (free to the first 50 to signup). Reserve your free seats now before they are gone.
