It’s Strikingly True

"Strikingly True"! That's the title of the latest book from Ripley's Believe It or Not and I'll be giving away a brand new hard cover coffee table version of the book this afternoon (Monday) on the Puffman Show at 4:35 right after I interview Edward Meyer from Ripleys. Edward's the VP of Exhibits & Archives and he's one of my favorite guests to interview. The man i

I always wondered about those Wal-Mart Greeters

I've always been curious about those "Wal-Mart Greeters". I mean, who are they, where do they come from, did they used to work, why would ANYONE in their right mind want to stand at the front doors and greet the "Walmartians" as they enter the store. Believe me, I've seen my share of "Walmartians" on e-mail "forwards" and it's looks like a pretty strange neighborhood to me. Last evening, I was reading Montana History at the Heritage Center here in Shelby.

Time to throw the switch

I was at the Marias Heritage Center last evening (Tuesday) reading our Montana History and I was able to conclude the late William Yenne's (it rhymes with penny) tome, "Switchback". Most interesting, the man spent almost all of his life working for the National Park Service, most of it at Glacier

It will be a “grizzly” kind of day

This Saturday, the 6th of August, marks this summer's Grizzly Day celebration in Dupuyer. I've been there a time or two before and I can't wait to go back this year. Of course, on the way, I'll stop by the Lighthouse and chew the fat about fishing with Bob Kovatch who's a great asset to my Old Fishing Hole program

San Francisco Considering Banning Sales of All Pets

A proposal to ban all pets sales in San Francisco is being considered by the city’s Board of Supervisors.

According to those who have proposed the ban, the rational behind it is twofold. It would encourage San Franciscans to adopt animals from shelters and rescue organization, and it would put an end to what animal rights activists claim are inhumane conditions in puppy mills and kitten factories.

Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.

NO FUN ALLOWED IN THE BIG APPLE

That's the impression I get from talking with the Gabby Cabby, New York City cab driver and longtime pal of mine, Peter Franklin. The Gabman will be joining me this afternoon (Thursday) at 4:35 right after Puffman Musical Trivia. The driver of the big yellow taxi has a true tale about four people arrested for eating doughnuts in a playground. I also found out that it's against the law for New York City residents to remove, kill, or damage a street or park tree. Two New Yorkers got nabbed for chopping down a ginkgo tree with an axe! They were apparently trying to steal a bike.
