Jackie Hope: The birdfeeder dilemmas
We need help with an ethical dilemma. Is it right to continue to fill bird feeders during the summer? We’ve been stuffing those little pigs-with-wings, as well as those pigs-with-furry-tails — also known as ninja squirrels — all winter. Now that it is spring, sorta, there is...

Jackie Hope: Feeling a little Drafty
Did you feel a draft a couple of weeks ago, or was it just me? You know, May 8-10, when a north wind was blowing lots of rain, and ESPN football analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. was blowing lots of smoke? Yeah, baby, it was the 2014 NFL draft — second only to the Super Bowl for delicious...

Jackie Hope: Laramidia: AKA Cretaceous Park
You taking a weekend trip to Laramidia this summer? You know, out near the Judith River and Two Medicine areas of Montana. Laramidia. Say what? You never heard of Laramidia? See, that’s what the western quarter of North America used to be called, back in the olden days. Back when...

Jackie Hope: Feliz Mayo!
Don’t you just love everything about Cinco de Mayo? The food, the music, the food, the dancing. The food. Um, did we mention the food? No, we are not talking about mayonnaise. Which is pretty great, too. In fact, did you know you can use it for darned near anything from tuna sandwiches...

Jackie Hope: Do you feel the steam, punk?
Know what steampunk is? It is what happens when Goths discover the color brown. And you are asking what Medieval history has to do with the color brown, aren’t you? We’re not talking about those Goth guys that caused the fall of the Roman Empire. Or those guys who invented the...

Jackie Hope: Have you hugged a tree today?
Greetings, Earthlings. Today is your day. Sci-fi? A sequel to “Lost?” A new GEICO commercial? Nah. Today is Earth Day. Go hug a tree. Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, mostly by hippies, tree huggers and first-generation environmental ecologists, It was 20 million strong...

Jackie Hope: Winging it
Hey, have you seen any robins yet? They are back from their winter digs and are scouting yards for worms, hot-looking robins of the opposite gender and affordable housing. Don’t know about your yard, but the only thing resembling a worm in our front yard is a snapped rubber band...

Jackie Hope: A look back at Texas Instruments games
Once upon a time, there was a little PC called the TI99/4A. She was lovable, but somewhat challenged, bit-wise. Little TI meant well. She just did not have that much onboard computing power. The TI99 was Texas Instruments’ entry into the home PC sweepstakes, back when computers...

Jackie Hope: Baseball season means start of spring
Sunday night, spring officially begins. Oh, sure, there was that equinox thing last Thursday, and there was a robin mining a snow bank for something meaty the other day. But for some of us spring begins when that first Major League baseball is tossed out onto the field of dreams...

Jackie Hope: Got mud?
You ever look at any of those fancy-schmancy decorating magazines? Ones with multi-syllabic words in their names, like “Architectural” or “Metropolitan?” OK, true confession time here: We’ve subscribed to nearly every magazine there ever was, or is, including a few that...

What’s with all these Internet quizzes? You know the ones. They pop up on Facebook. Or one of your 4,927 Facebook friends sends you a quiz so she can get to know you better. Because, goodness knows, she only has 5,280 friends herself, and therefore she needs all the BFFs she can...

Jackie Hope: Tune in and go back in time
There’s a time machine in downtown Dickinson! Who knew? I bet you’ve walked past it a gazillion times and didn’t even notice it. It has a narrow little door, and it’s an odd little place. It’s sorta like the King’s Cross 9¾ platform for the Hogwarts Express, except you...

Jackie Hope: A Super Bowl without Velveeta?!?!?
Were you listening to the news last week? Did you hear there is a shortage of Velveeta? Oh man, this is a disaster waiting to happen. The Super Bowl is in a week and a half, and stores are running low on Velveeta. OK, let’s get this into perspective. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH VELVEETA...

Jackie Hope: The pipes are calling
Close your eyes and think about Christmas music. Stop thinking about “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” Think about the other stuff — the Sunday school programs, the carols and “O Holy Night.” What do you hear behind, underneath and supporting those angelic voices? If...
