Job Update

What a great first week at my new job! The folks at KRTV (reporters, techs, admin) have been awesome – friendly, helpful, and sincere – thanks, gang! I’ve spent most of the time playing “under the hood” of the content-management system used by all of the Montana’s News Station-branded sites; the rest of the time has been spent watching how the news is “made” and adjusting to the culture and jargon of the news biz (vo-sot-vo, rundown, etc)… Read more

Free Oil Changes (?)

Got an e-mail from Walter with the following information:

According to an e-mail received from SK of Great Falls: Saturday, September 20th, Faith Center Church on 10th Avenue South is doing free oil changes for single moms or those in need. Have them call the church for an appointment (to get the right oil filters for them).

Sounds like a nice thing – will try to confirm on Friday.

Cold Hard Cash on Letterman

Well this is certainly cool (no pun intended): local favorite Cold Hard Cash is slated to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman! From the band’s MySpace page:

It’s confirmed! We’ll be on the Late Show with David Letterman…on NOV 21ST! Mark your calanders and check it out! If you’re in Missoula, MT. this Saturday (30th), we’ll be playing at The Badlander (208 Ryman Street). Come celebrate CASH style with us!

If you’ve never seen Cold Hard Cash before…do so. Trust me.

Cathy notes in the comments: “Hello. I just wanted to let you know that this is a misprint about the date. The real date of the appearance will be November 18th. It is a Tuesday. Thanks.”

UPDATE, November 19, 2008: awesome! Cold Hard Cash did a great job on Letterman last night – read more (and see the video) right here!

Out And About

Some possibly interesting things for you to enjoy:

Josh – aka the Yard Whisperer – is conducting an Open House on Saturday…if he survives his next encounter with Yellow Jackets.

Speaking of housing…if you have (or know of) a nice rental house looking for tenants, check out this listing:

My husband is a professional Boy Scout and I am a teacher. We are college educated, do not drink, smoke or do drugs. We also have clean criminal histories and excellent rental history. We are looking for a 3 bed, 2 bath home within 30 minutes of Great Falls. Ideally we would like room for our 1 horse and 2 well behaved dogs.

And while I was browsing the Montana Craigslist in search of Interesting Things, I stumbled across this whimsical entry: WE HAVE 4 BANTAM ROOSTERS CALL 406-590-1351 Ha!

Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned the Citizens’ Academy sponsored by the GF Police Department? GF Girl reports that they are still a few volunteers short, so if you’re interested, it’s not too late to register.

Win Manly Cash!

old MMC logoOne of my favorite local companies – the Manly Man Candle Company – is offering a $100 prize to whoever can design the Most Manliest Logo for the company. The old logo features a raging bull, which is certainly Manly, but perhaps doesn’t tell the whole story. So they’re turning it over to you – the true experts on what a Manly Man Candle is all about – to create a logo that sums it all up. The rules: Read more
