Last night was Men's Night at the H.G.C and you couldn't have asked for a better night at the the golf course. It was also retro and ugly shirt night and Tyler Bieber did not waste an opportunity to torment the eyes of his fellow Humbolltonian's as you can see here.
With such a ugly attire for golf; I had to ask my friend Sven(The Simon Cowell of Fashion) what he thought about Tyler's golfing attire
You always know you work with a great group of people when they highlight your birthday. Well Tyler went out of his way to make a birthday gift from the heart. Making sure I'll never feel down on my bad days and making sure everyday is like my birthday. He even made a face of anger and disapointment for me to use so i wouldn't have to use my own face. Kinda creepy actually.
I don't get to do this kind of blog very often; but since we will all be Putting the Heart Back In Down Town Humboldt on August 22 and 23rd! I figured This is a good opportunity to offer my story to you about my first experience in Down Town Humboldt!
It was actually way before Bolt FM was even a possibility to exist serving Humboldt and area; It was before Obama took his chair in the white house. It was summerish of 2008! I was traveling from Yorkton to Saskatoon on highway 16 when I noticed the hwy 20 junction. Feeling adventurous and in no hurry to get to my destination. I took small detour though Humboldt. It was around 9 o'clock at night and sure enough I was stopped at the Main Street railway crossing
The evening had an endless drizzle as I waited for those CN workers to do there thing and listening to a radio station play Rihanna's "Umbrella" for the 8th time since I got off the Yellow Head. The train had passed and I was on my way to drive down Main Street. The Pavment shined a glossy black as i was looking left and right like what most tourists do. from the night rain and the first thing I noticed besides the the lovely refurbished business buildings was a clean wide open streets. Full, clean green trees and parks!
But that night when I first passed through this community I now call home. The beautiful clock tower, in my mind, is the absolute thing that compliments the down town area, it was my "wow" factor and gave me such a great impression on Humboldt. I remember actually muttering the words to my self "I could see my self living here"

I really enjoy talking about weird and funny days, today's day is "Old joke day". I love putting them on the Bolt facebook page and giving away cool stuff!
Today I asked "Good afternoon! Today is national "old joke" day! So I thought that I would give away a $10 gift card to the Windsor hotel! (they have the best burgers EVER) All you have to do is comment below, tell me your worst CLEAN joke, and the one with the most likes will win! - Jess One joke per person"
The amount of comments that flooded in throughout the afternoon was crazy, I never expected that much feedback! The jokes were hilarious.
Here are the jokes for you to read, just in case you need to smile on a rainy day.

Dave the ram lamb at Nokomos fair a few years ago. I spent all day bathing and blow drying him. We did come 1st though! So who's laughing now huh!
With many events happening throughout the summer, I thought that it would be a good idea to pick through a couple and go into detail about a specific event.
So today's blog all about mutton busting! Which will be happening on August 2nd in Nokomis. Yes it may be a long-ish drive but this is Canada, everywhere is a long-ish drive.
Mutton busting was first introduced sometime in the 1980s. Kids ages 5-7 weighing less than 55lbs could enter. The sheep is held still, the kid is plopped on their woolly sheep and ride it for at least 6 seconds. Mutton Busting as taken the world by storm, with the event having thousands of kids taking part each year.
I highly doubt 55lbs would hurt a sheep, I live on a sheep farm. I have crowd surfed on sheep. Not on purpose of course. I have also had a sheep run between my legs, and with it being woolly I was stuck, backwards on a galloping sheep. Time of my life! It did not collapse, it trotted away, (bah bah bah) to it's friends and ate grass.
I highly recommend checking out Nokomis fair! The people are great every year. I love the horse shows with barrel racing, pole bending, ya'know all that western stuff. LOVE IT.

Today is a very special day, today is national gorgeous grandma day!
So let's thank our grandma's for having such a positive influence on our lives.
Grandma's teach us so much as we grow up, of course our parents do too, but grandma's always see both sides of the problem. Grandma's are problem solvers.
She tells wonderful stories of her past, her childhood, mistakes and achievements. Which help us to grow into the strong people we are.
Grandma's always have the best treats ever! and on occasion she spoils us.
When we're sick and our parents are working, she looks after us, reads us stories and feeds us delicious soup.
Grandma's want their children and grand children to follow their dreams, she's supportive and if things don't work out the first time, she'll help you see another way.
Grandma's are wonderful and deserve all the riches in the world. Show your gorgeous grandma you care today and so something special. Clean her house, weed her garden or just simply sit down and have a cup of coffee and listen to her stories.
