A Lack Of Alliteration Or Resting Brain Syndrome

My alliteration skills are lacking this week. I have not been able to come up with a catchy headline for my drivel this week. I think my brain wants to remain in pajamas this morning. I suspect there...

 

Snow, Seeds, Supper

I’m sad to report we’ve been getting more snow, off and on. It melts a little, a little gets added, then melts a little more. The melting is winning; I can see a bit of lawn next to the garden, as well as mud at the bottom, where my asparagus...

 

Internet-Based Program Used To Reduce Depression And Anxiety Symptoms To Be Offered For Free

A program delivered entirely online that aims to reduce depression and anxiety symptoms will be offered for free to hundreds of adult Montanans. The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services is making the program – an internet-based... Full story

 

Chirping, Chipping And Cooking

The spring bird migrations are finally occurring. We have had flocks of geese flying overhead. Last week a flock of crows had briefly graced our yard. There are lots of sparrows, juncos, and at least...

 

Snow, Seeds And Social Distancing

Living well beyond the Middle of Nowhere has some advantages over living in town, especially these days. Keeping your distance socially is much easier when your nearest neighbor is almost a mile...

 

Nature Gone Nuts

The time interval between snows and storms up here seems to be getting shorter. Last week our Monday snow arrived on Sunday; this week it arrived on Saturday. Mother Nature has taken this jumping ahead on the time to an insane level. She’s out of...

 

Changing Times?

Can we all agree we hate the biannual time changes? “Losing” that hour each spring seems harder than “gaining” it back in the fall. In reality, all we are accomplishing is messing up everyone’s time schedules. It’s an arbitrary insult to...

 

Rockin and Rollin' On Ice

HiLine Skating presents its 14th annual Showcase on Saturday, March 7, 2 p.m., at the Valley Event Center. The public is invited to come see what the skaters in the Learn to Skate program have...

 

Weathery Wind And Wordy Wind

Depending upon how you view reading my musings, you’re either in luck, or doomed. There was no major snowstorm on this Monday morning, March 2, just wind. And that wind was more of a breeze than the major gale we experienced Sunday. It had been...

 

WAG AOM Reception To Feature Myers' Easter Eggs

Just in time for Easter, Jason Myers will have 30 of his exquisitely designed and handmade sugar Easter eggs at the Wheatgrass Arts & Gallery's Artist of the Month reception, located at the...

 

Starting To Hate Mother Nature

It seems as though on Monday mornings (the time I take to write this column since it is due by noon, after all) Mother Nature decides to frown on us and deliver another helping of unwanted snow. It’s almost enough to make me want to discontinue...

 

Disrupted Plans

We had planned to head to the Outpost Cafe in Opheim on Valentine’s Day for their steak and shrimp special. Mother Nature intervened, disrupting our plans with a short but intense snowstorm. Our home is only about 50 yards from the highway, but in...

 

Creating Pleasing Combinations In The Kitchen

I’d copied a recipe from a magazine quite some time ago. It was held by a magnet on the exhaust fan cover above my stove top, where I saw it daily for months. I’d put it there so I’d be sure to try it. But there were ingredients I knew Dennis...

 

U.S. Marine Laid to Rest in Hinsdale

He died alone and was buried, with everything he owned, in a plywood box at a small cemetery in Hinsdale, Mont. That is the end to the story of Marine Bruce Powers, age of 79, after dying in the...

 

Meatballs and Alternative Slaw

I feel as though I don’t have much to talk about this week, but, being a woman, talk I will. We aren’t still in Florida, so there aren’t comparisons to be made between Montana and Florida flora. It’s a long time until spring returns, no...

 

Snowbirds? Us?

While shopping for fresh fruits and veggies last Thursday, I was greeted by a friend in the grocers. He accused me of being the cause of coming bad weather. (We did get snow flurries, a bit of rain, more heavy snow, and strong winds Saturday,...

 

Beaches, Landscapes and Palms

We are winding down our Florida sojourn. I am not looking forward to returning from this green semi-tropical paradise to our frozen white tundra. The grandsons had a weekend off from hockey, so we too...

 

O-Pine-Inated Report On Trees

We're still vacationing in Florida, and watching lots of hockey. We did throw in a real circus last weekend. The contrast of the heat under the big top to the chill of ice arenas was similar to walkin...

 

Parasitic vs Epiphytic Plants

We are in sunny Florida, visiting our middle daughter and her family. Don't be jealous. While it's sunny (for the most part - we did see lots of rain Saturday) and green, we're still experiencing...

 

Scottie Orators Win Another

The Glasgow Scottie Speech and Drama teams made their way to Sidney on Jan. 4 to compete in their annual invitational, which drew a large swathe of Class A, B and C schools from the region. The meet...

 

Frost, Feasts and Power Failures As Well As Reflections of 2019

Mother Nature gets a huge F for how it's treated us the past two holidays. I think we're all hoping the frost issues and power outages are over for good. I know the linemen (our heroes) hope the...

 

Christmas, Casseroles, Cooking

Merry Christmas! Due to the holiday falling on “going to press” day, this column is being written very shortly after last week’s piece. I’m sure next week’s will be due early, as well. Strange thing about New Years always following Christma...

 

Plants, Cats and Cooking

Just yesterday my husband noticed one of my older amaryllis bulbs is sending up a flowerbud. I have seven older ones sitting in their original pots in the south-facing dining room windows. I really...

 

Scottie Speech Team Claims First in Malta

The Glasgow Scottie Speech and Drama teams traveled to Malta on Dec. 14 for that school's speech and drama meet. The Scottie Speech team reclaimed their position on the top of the team point scores...

 

Another Week and Another Thanksgiving Passes By

Another week has come and gone. Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. The weather was not nice at all, so we stayed home, thankful for warmth, a well-stocked freezer, and each other. (We're also...
