Rumor Control

1. Heard that a new pretzel place might be opening up in Holiday Village Mall. If true – hooray! Oh, how I’ve missed Neon Pretzel! I used to love ordering a tasty gyro from Little Athens, and while waiting for Nick to make it perfect, jump across the hallway and grab a pretzel to nibble on.

2. Rumor that a “call center” of some sort – possibly on NW Bypass? – is shutting down.

Anyone with info on either of these rumors…? Drop a comment here or use the handy Contact form – thanks!

looks like both rumors are no longer rumors – got confirmation that the Cellular One call center did indeed close today (sad), and learned that the pretzel place opens tomorrow (glad)!

Downtown: Diamonds & Design

Went downtown yesterday and dropped by Allyson’s place, and holy cow – if you’re looking for bargains on jewelry and diamonds, you really need to check it out. I’m not much into jewelry, but at these prices…

And I also stopped by Sign Pro to (finally!) deliver the prize to Harley Rider for winning the “First Snow!” contest. Sorry it took so long, Harley Rider! And while I was visiting, she showed off some of the nifty “car wraps” that the store does – check this out:

cool car wrap!


– Remember back when 94.5 had the “Hershey & Bubba” show? Well, we’ve still got Hershey (waves to Scott), but if you wondered where “Bubba” went, here you go.

– Remember TWISS? The person who posted it is Jim Gray, aka Montana’s “The Kitchen Guy.”

– Remember the nuclear embarrassments at Minot AFB? Nothing as bad as that at Malmstrom, but …apparently the big inspection didn’t go as well as hoped.

– Remember Great Falls native Ryan Leaf? He’s also in the news…but hey, at least he’s popular with crack addicts!

Thank You, Veterans

Montana Veterans Memorial in Great Falls:

Montana Veterans Memorial

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

*bump to top* This is sad for Great Falls: Diamonds By Design is shutting down. It’s a nifty jewelry store downtown, sort of co-located with Dragonfly Dry Goods.
But it’s good news for Allyson, a great gal who is moving on to bigger & better things…and it’s good for you, if you’re looking for some great deals on diamonds and jewelry! Allyson authorized me to promote her going out of business sale – so read this, print it out, head on downtown, and find a bargain! Read more
