The city of Missoula has the possibility of being the host of the Social Media Tourism Symposium - also known as SoMeT. Our thriving college town will go head-to-head against 12 other cities in the United States in a "social media battle of the ages."
I've been on a running kick lately. In fact, my goal this year is to finally run Bloomsday 2013. As a born and raised Spokane native I'm actually shocked and disappointed in myself for never taking part in this annual tradition. This year, no excuses. And to get myself thoroughly prepared for this challenge, I'm going to attempt to take in as many Missoula-area 5K's as I can between now and then.
An interesting species of dinosaur skeleton discovered in Montana has been named “Obamadon” because it had long, straight teeth like the President. Donald Trump immediately demanded to see the fossil’s birth certificate. Just kidding! No. But we are serious about the dinosaur part..
If you were asked to name the most expensive hotel in the U.S., you’d probably choose a posh hotel in one of the big cities like New York, but a new survey reveals the priciest location is in Philipsburg, Montana.
A survey by Luxury-Hotels.com finds The Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg is the most expensive hotel in the U.S., based on the average daily price for a standard double room for the period spanning June through September 2012. Folks pay, on average, $2,279 per night at The Ranch. And that’s based on double occupancy.
Remember the ending of the movie "A Christmas Story" where the family had to settle for duck at an oriental cafe because it was the only place open? I remember a holiday far worse than that! Years ago when my wife and I had all of our family members snowed in at their homes and all we could enjoy was a can of Sparks and some beef jerky from the convenience store. N
Want to get the attention of the White House? Send them a letter stating that you, and currently 11,138 others, want to start your own government. That is exactly what Montana, and many other states in our nation, our doing at this very moment.
Currently, our nation's capital is drawing its attention towards recently published online petitions attempting to allow the State of Montana to "withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government," according to an online letter to the Obama Administration.
Update 11/19/12:Griz win by a landslide! "Keep it Grizzly" dominated with the most YouTube video views with over 10,000 hits in seven days. Bobcats: 1,116
It's a battle for online bragging rights, as Griz-Cat fever is heating up before the big game! Recently, Bozeman presented their version of Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup," which they titled "Blue Bobcat Cup." Some Cat fans started whispering about whether Missoula could top their spirited video, which, yes, touts that the Cats are better than the Griz.
Well, don't worry Griz fans... we found the answer! Yes, yes we can top that video!
Before I moved to Missoula, I lived in Kalispell and had made many good friends over the course of years that I stayed there. Back in 2004, money never really seemed to be too much of an issue. But then again, that was before the entire global market came to a screeching halt. Since then, the lack of jobs and income has washed up large cities like Detroit and even as close as Spokane.
