Update: A big success - over 20 folks showed up from my neighborhood. They picked up lots of trash. And one volunteer found a dollar bill in the ditch east of Ferguson.

The Cateye Cafe has a weird schedule, so be sure to check their website before visiting.
I had a "business breakfast" this morning with a visitor from Virginia Tech. What a horrific day VT had.
Do you ever get the feeling that no place is safe?

The Garage is located on the corner of Church and Main in downtown Bozeman. The restaurant is located in a former automobile service facility, hence the name.
I had an excellent hamburger (with swiss cheese and a kaiser roll bun) on Saturday. In fact, I hereby award the Best Buns in Bozeman award to The Garage.
(As a bachelor, I eat out a lot, and like to think I know about great buns.)

I had breakfast here last Friday - eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, and toast. The sausage patty was ginormous - the size of a small steak. I was so full I had to skip getting a sweetroll for dessert.
I liked the Western Cafe a bit better than Mainstreet Overeasy. I won't be eating at either one very frequently, though - I want to avoid a heart attack ;-)

I had eggs & sausage -- good, but not great. I want to go back and try the pancakes, though.
In coming days, I hope to review breakfast at the Western Cafe and at the Stockyard Cafe (is it still in operation?).

Best-remembered Poems (edited by Martin Gardner) presents well-known 19th and 20th century British and American poems. The poems range from classics to nonsense to doggerel. I enjoyed Gardner's introduction to each poem.
The book is published by Dover, which produces inexpensive high-quality paperbacks. In Bozeman, Hastings has a small selection of Dover books.
I went alone, but recognized several folks. I would swear I saw Patia Stephens, except I was trying on some beer googles at the time. She had a posse, so I was unable to verify. A former student gave me a token for a free beer - can't complain about that! And, I recognized a fellow ski volunteer (which is actually an accomplishment because I had never see her except bundled up in ski gear).
There was a good honky tonk band: TenFoot Tall and 50 Proof. Made me feel like I was back in Texas.

I enjoyed this video back in the day, but the song seems pretty sucky in retrospect - Madonna and the backup singers are grating (to my ear). The costumer did a good job in keeping the dress from falling off, though.
Bonus: Here's a rock critic dissin' the Beatles, (I was more of a Stones and CCR fan, as I recall, but still.)
