My Answer

It’s possible to live a good life without God — at the expense of the ultimate joy Q. : Our neighbors are some of the kindest and most moral people we know, and yet they don’t have any use for God. Unfortunately, another neighbor claims to be a...

Lots of good football to watch these days. I have to mention Big Sandy who stunned everyone last weekend when they beat Geraldine 30 to 22. Maybe Big Sandy is upward bound once again. It has been a long dry spell for the Pioneers. I got to watch the...

It is that time of the month that I include a recipe for you. It is also Columbus Day so I guess something is in order for an Italian recipe. I have written again and again about spaghetti and meatballs. It is my original comfort food and for years...

 

My Answer

Don’t allow evil to cloud your perception of God Q. I have a friend who likes to ask me hard questions about the Bible (since he knows I’m a Christian). But even if I find an answer, he just comes up with another question. Sometimes I think he...

 

What 'cher point?

Good for the Bobcats and the Grizzlies this week. Both won their Saturday games. The Bobcats finished off Portland State 30 t0 22. The mighty Griz beat Idaho State 39 to 31. Good playing on the part of both teams. In the Frontier League about all I...

 

What 'cher point?

God is good! The Grizzlies won and the Bobcats lost! No, I don’t mean that. Those words were written by my evil twin brother, Mean Robby. I am sorry that MSU lost, but I am very happy that the Griz finally won a road game and now that curse is...

I love to view fall foliage! Each year about this time I review with you some of the best places in Montana to view the bold reds, oranges, yellows and golds not to mention purples and dark greens that make up some of the most vibrant fall foliage...

 

My Answer

Don’t allow evil to cloud your perception of God Q. I find the Bible interesting (or at least parts of it), but I don’t think we ought to follow it as a guide for our lives. After all, it’s thousands of years old, and we live in a different...

 

What 'cher point?

Lots happening in the wonderful world of football these days. Take last weekend for instance. The Bobcats beat North Dakota 49 to 21, a blowout if there was ever a blowout to be had. Meanwhile back home in the Grizzly Nation the Griz lost to Eastern...

I was never much of a hunter. I guess I loved watching wildlife too much and marveling over its beauty. However, if there was a hunting camp to go to, I was usually there. I loved hunting camps almost as much as fishing camps. Of course our hunting...

 

What 'cher point?

The Montana Grizzlies had a mixed bag last Saturday when they played Savannah State at home in Missoula. They won the game handily, beating Savanna State 56 to 3 of all things but their main quarterback Reese Phillips had a serious ankle injury....

I hate wildfires. We used to call them forest fires if you will recall but then the prairies started burning as well so the name had to be changed to wild fires. The Bear Paw fire that we have been in the midst of for a week or more was one of the...

 

What 'cher point?

There were many wins and losses in football this last weekend. Great Falls Central really took the Thunderbirds to task, beating them 64 to 6. That led Central to a 3 and 0 record and a look of a winner in class C. Cascade beat Chinook and Laurel...

It is September and if it ever cools off September signals the beginning of fall and a wonderful time to start cooking those casseroles that you missed so much during the long hot summer. My version of Shepherd’s Pie I have given out the recipe...

 

My Answer

Don’t allow evil to cloud your perception of God Q. I don’t see how anyone can believe in God, especially in light of all the bad things that have been done in the name of religion over the centuries — wars, conflicts, oppression, hate, etc. We...

 

What 'cher point?

Prep football like all prep sports in Montana is changing. Schools are getting smaller and there are more and more who opt out of football or go to eight man which is much easier to fill than the traditional eleven man teams. Chouteau this year is...

I have not shared any mail with you gentle readers for some time now. Old time readers know that my mail is usually about the same each time I get any and varies from those who are in love with me to those who hate the ground I walk on. Yet, it is...

I have to go to the doctor in Great Falls today. I am not looking forward to that but I am looking forward to stopping at Borries in Black Eagle on the way home and picking up some spaghetti sauce and meat balls that are to die for. Borries sauce is...

There is a lot of wildlife to view in our area but not everyone sees it. I had to laugh when I was driving a bus in Glacier National Park. People used to ask if they would see wildlife and I would say probably not in my bus as I had bad luck in the...

 

What 'Cher Point?

There is plenty of football news all of a sudden this month as the NFL starts their pre season and college teams regroup for yet another season. I notice that for fantasy football freaks there is no end to trades and the like all making the choosing...

 

My Answer

Q: If Jesus came back to earth and walked down the street of almost any one of our major cities, would anyone recognize Him? I’m curious about this, because we don’t really know what He looked like, do we? A: No, the Bible doesn’t tell us...

This week I was going to advise going for a couple of days to Zortman and having a good steak dinner, staying maybe at the historic Buckhorn cabins and exploring Mission Canyon. The terrible forest fire there stopped that travel guide. It reminds me...

Hasn’t this weather been tough on so many of us? Just hot and hotter and hotter and little or no rain and the National Weather Service says it is going to stay that way all through the rest of July. I was afraid to ask them about August. I can...

 

My Answer

Q: Sometimes I feel like God is very close to me, but then something happens and I begin wondering if He's even there. I wish my faith wasn't so up and down, but it is. Am I always going to be this way? A: No, you don’t always need to be this... Full story
