    Update! Salt Lick has expanded its airport presence and now has locations within easy access of all gates! Two of the original Salt Licks. Two “Salt Lick’s Wine Cellar”s. And two “Salt Lick Does Tacos, Too!”s.

    In other news, I encourage all to visit the softer side of Sears.

    Not sure why you'd want to waste your time on that dog food.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    The town I grew up in has a history of mischief.

    The last Canadian Indian battle took place there. (Call them indiginous people in Canada. The I word is no longer acceptable.)

    It was also the place that contributed to the formation of the Canadian Mounties, thanks to the Whiskey trade and the supposed American presence.

    The outlaws of Fort Whoop-Up and surrounding areas—combined with the supposed flying of an American flag over Canadian territory—contributed to the formation of the North-West Mounted Police (NWMP). Fort Whoop-Up was a destination on their march west in 1874.

    My town, Pleasant Grove, was given the name to get away from the original name, Battle Creek, so named because our forebears massacred some Utes because they thought they had stolen some of Brigham Young's horses.

    You need to start a petition to go back to the original name.

    Or, in the TABCATS tradition, "Battle Creek at Pleasant Grove".
