in Hettinger, North Dakota, U.S.A., with a wide assortment of objects from the homesteading days of the area (& a little beyond) to the near present, I did a few months volunteer work there a couple years ago, & have donated to the level of “sodbuster member” in the past
here one can find yesteryear cookware, dental instruments, hair dresser equipment, arrowheads, old fashioned children’s toys, a display about the Yellowstone Trail (Highway 12), Ford cars from the 1920s, portraits of many of the settlers of the area, political button pins from decades gone by, etc.

a town which I’ve been to, & been through, a few times, on the far western edge of the state, along I-94
there is a blog, for what it’s worth, dedicated to the place: http://beachnd.blogspot.com/
why it’s name is Beach, I’d like to know that too
spent a couple days there recently, towards the end of last month, I lived there for a couple months in the winter at the end of last year
here’s a photo of a bridge that leads into the city, as a person crosses over the Missouri River, which I thought was a nice scene
a contest/election of sorts going on at Kum & Go stations here in the U.S.A., in some states (Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, & Arkansas)
I usually call it pop, but soda is alright too, I suppose
I was on a trans-Atlantic flight once, & asked what I would like to drink, & when I responded “pop” the server/steward said, “I’m sorry, but I don’t know what that is” *shrugs*
a store for all sorts of quilting materials located on Main Street in Hettinger, ND, U.S.A. (but sells online too), it’s run by some really nice people that really seem to have a sincere interest and passion in what they do, it’s the store where I bought all my materials (except perhaps the batting) for my final project, a quilt, for the Clothing & Textiles class I was in my senior year of high school
a semi-worthy watch
a 2006 film focused mostly on an Evangelical (to be less specific a Christian) summer camp for children held in North Dakota, U.S.A., with clips from a “Ring Of Fire” radio personality played in between here & there for a little balance… the footage gets disturbing, the footage gets ridiculous
I’m not going to spend a lot of time dissecting Jesus Camp, at least not right now, but I will utter my strong disagreement with one comment in particular from the film by stating: Liberalism is not dead; not even in North Dakota.
by now I have hits in 10 cities in North Dakota: Hettinger, Bismarck, Dickinson, Page, Mandan, Mott, Grand Forks, Williston, Bowman, & Center

http://www.wheresgeorge.com is a USA currency tracking project
I’ve been registering dollars on the site every once in a while for almost 3 years now, & so far my money has gone on to at least 13 states: North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, Minnesota, Montana, Arizona, California, New York, Georgia, Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin, & Missouri. The places I’ve intercepted marked bills from would create a different list though.
