Quite a surprise when I was flipping through the FM dial during lunch: instead of hearing the usual thrash/alt metal/hard-rock on 107.3, I heard “You Aint’ Seen Nothin’ Yet” by BTO, followed by “Good Thing” from The Fine Young Cannibals. A few minutes later, the Rolling Stones with “Mixed Emotions”…and then Al Stewart’s “Year Of The Cat.” Whoa! Looks like there’s been a serious format change at 107.3! Read more
Some of you may be familiar with the Young Enthusiast Society (Great Falls), which goes by the name of YES! The primary goal of YES! is to promote Great Falls as a great place to live & work, particularly for young professionals. One of the YES! featured activities is “Urban Theater,” which will air the movie “Spy Kids 3” tomorrow:
July 8th will be the third of four Urban Theaters for 2005. Bring the family out to the Davidson Circle Plaza to see ‘Spy Kids 3-D’. Bring a chair and a blanket, 3-D glasses will be provided.
So if you’re looking for something fun to do on Friday night – particularly with the kids – head on down to watch the show!
Sure, I’m glad that we now have both an NBC affiliate AND a Fox affiliate…but there does appear to be a downside: I can’t find syndicated episodes of “The Simpsons” on TV anymore! No more back-to-back episodes at 5:30 and 6:00 pm. Maybe they are being aired locally, just at a different time, and I haven’t found them yet. If you know of syndicated episodes airing here in Great Falls, let me know! UPDATE: well, maybe not…there was an episode on at 6:00 pm on Wednesday on channel 12 (KTGF)…maybe there’s still a little bit of confusion over who is going to air what programs.
I’m not much of a sports fan, but it’s always good to see that the local baseball team has a website: the Great Falls White Sox! You can check out the schedule, the roster of players, play trivia, get ticket information, and so on. If you’re a Sox fan, definitely worth checking out.
Made my first-ever trip to Black Eagle Park this evening, and found it to be quite fun. Needs a little bit of TLC, but a very nice park. And it’s got one loooooong slide! Special thanks to BECKY for the delicious smores that she made! Then off for a bite to eat at the new Flying J up on Gore Hill (next to the Crystal Inn). And then we watched the fireworks from the top of the hill behind Home Depot…the city display was OK, but what was really amazing was watching fireworks going off ALL OVER TOWN! There wasn’t a single second from about 10:00 until 11:00 pm that the sky wasn’t lit up from one end to the other – pretty wild. Hope you had a great Independence Day!
…Mrs Great Falls! I didn’t know that such a competition existed, but kudos to the winner, Mrs Kandi Stoebe. I’m a bit puzzled, though; for a competition that is so heavily weighted towards how attractive the contestants are, I thought that the Tribune article would have featured a picture. UPDATE: here’s a picture of Mrs Great Falls (scroll down).
