New Blog!

Another new blogger! This one is Frontier Mom posting over at The Wild Frontier; she’s in the Great Falls area, and off to a great start with her blog. Go welcome her to the Great Falls blogosphere!

Thank You, Veterans

Montana Veterans Memorial in Great Falls: It’s a beautiful place. If you haven’t visited yet – you should. This is the first Veterans Day since 1986 that I am not in the Air Force. It’s strange – now that I am no longer serving, I feel even more gratitude towards those who do. Does that make sense? Any other vets feel the same way?

Diamonds By Design

Retro: Great Falls Turns 75

Time for some more retro! When I was in Helena last weekend, I snagged a nifty book that commemorates the 75th anniversary of Great Falls. Time-traveling – way cool.
