Osbasso in Great Falls!

At last month’s Great Falls Blog Meet, special guest star Wulfgar gave a pretty neat overview of the who, what, why, etc of blogging, and in particular Montana bloggers. He asked all of the attendees what the most popular blog in Montana is…and although some of us threw out some good guesses, Wulfgar pointed out that the most popular blog in Montana is arguably Views From The Back Row. It’s a great Helena-based blog run…


GF makes NYT

Not often that Great Falls lands in the New York Times, but it did this weekend. The topic: unionization. Here’s a snippet: Keri Gorder, until recently the manager of a hair salon in Great Falls, Mont., said she was surprised last month by a document that her company wanted stylists to sign. Ms. Gorder said the salon’s parent company, the Regis Corporation, urged the four stylists at her salon, Cost Cutters, to sign a document…


RIP, Zandy’s

Farewell, Zandy’s. A true Great Falls icon, now gone. After closing down back in January, it fought back – Fred was brought on to revitalize the joint, and together with his awesome crew, put tons of sweat-equity into restoring Zandy’s, culminating in the re-birth of Zandy’s just a few weeks later.

The Big Screen in Great Falls

It was, quite simply, awesomely stupendously amazingly amazing. Worth the wait! And speaking of the movie theatre…got an e-mail from someone on…


Link Roundup!

Been too long since we had a good old-fashioned link roundup! Here we go! Mark is putting together a webinar focusing on Google Apps, and would love to get some feedback and participation. I’ve used Google Apps for a while – not extensively, but a bit – and as with most things Google, it’s awesome. Highly recommended. Claire is back, this time posting about healthcare reform via cable news pundits and hosts. As always, her…


Burned Into My Brain

If you spend any time listening to the radio (AM, primarily, and two stations in particular), then I’m sure you can recite – or sing – these lines in your sleep, just like me: I’m Kurt, and I’m Kent: we’re the tool guys from Midway Rental! …now come home to Ferrin’s Furniture. ProKleen, your restoration professionals…one call does it all. However, listening to the rhythm of a leaky faucet can give you nightmares! …and it’s…
