WILLISTON, N.D. - Yes the opportunities are great here in The Oil Patch, and one can make a six-figure income, but you do need to work ... maybe even 70 to 100 hours a week.
Folks don't come here to endure 40-below wind chills, just so that they can work a 40-hour week and spend afternoons watching Oprah reruns. There ain't no easy money.
I consistently convey to my twin 17-year-old sons that with a strong work ethic and goals they have the opportunity to retire at 30.
WATFORD CITY, N.D. -- The big brown dog lying beside my bed is snoring a little this morning. The beard around his snout and his dog eyebrows have turned white.
When he gets up, he gets up slowly, sort of creaking as he prepares to hit the steps to go outside.
WILLISTON, N.D. - We have 11 roughnecks next door.
They are always friendly, like when they feed, Rambo, our plastic-sewer-pipe-eating boxer, pork rinds much to the dismay of my beautiful wife, Melva. When dried, the rind particles just ain't good for our used Hoover.
FARGO, N.D. – Multitasking might be the strategy many of us have used for years to keep up with fast-paced jobs, a growing list of daily responsibilities or even juggling time with the kids.
But Dawn Kaiser has some tough love for the wannabe multitaskers: Just because we have worked on several tasks at once doesn’t mean we should.
“It doesn’t mean you’re good at it,” said Kaiser, a corporate trainer with The Village Business Institute in Fargo. “I can sing, too, but nobody wants to hear me sing.”
WILLISTON, N.D. - A sense of humor in a place like this is essential and makes the journey a lot more fun. Our family picked up that sense from "Dolly."
"Dolly," was my mother, Ginny, who was married to Bill "Big D," and she also was a mom to 11 kids, six girls and five boys. She was the consummate mother, wife, entertainer and the absolute best story teller.
WILLISTON, N.D. - Our biggest challenge when our family of six moved here and moved into our first temporary home, a 27-foot Outback camper, was Rambo, our Boxer mixed with who knows what else.
That camper become home for the first nine months, and for some devious reason Rambo consistently would chew off the plastic, flexible sewer hose from the camper. We went through seven of them at $49 a piece. The sales rep at Coates RV in town got to know us so well we invited him to the boys' high school graduation.
WILLISTON, N.D. - Just about everyone that makes the journey here has been to one of Bubba Bubbles Laundromats. They are the most popular, dreaded places in town. After 100-plus hours in the field, the last thing one wants to do besides get a root canal is to deal with laundry at a place named Bubba Bubbles.
FARGO, N.D. – Jody Norstedt, WDAY’s weekend sports anchor, grew up in Montevideo, Minn., watching husband-and-wife team Frank Vascellaro and Amelia Santaniello on WCCO in the Twin Cities.
So when his wife, Amy Unrau, who previously worked as a multimedia journalist/anchor for Valley News Live, expressed interest in getting back behind the camera after a stint in marketing, he jokingly said, “Oh man, we could be just like them!”
WILLISTON, N.D. - In our boomtown, we have thousands of trucks, overcrowded highways, poor infrastructure and dozens of serious accidents.
So what we need is St Christopher, the former travel protection saint for millions of Catholics and others in the 1950s!
Where is he? What happened to him?
WILLISTON, N.D. - The unemployment rate here is 0.8 percent. It's the best job market in the country. There's only 346 people whom are actually looking for work who are out of work out of a population of almost 40,000 people.
WILLISTON, N.D. - When I was 2 my mom dropped me (or threw me down) on my head and I immediately became inflicted with ADD. Coincidentally, it also made me codependent and permanently traumatized my "Inner Child."
Now having just ADD would be perfect for Williston because this place is a mecca for scatterbrains. But being stuck with the trifecta of disorders makes it almost impossible to shop.
WILLISTON, N.D. - Everything in Williston is twice the cost of the rest of the country, so I always carry a wad of $2 bills. Folks think they're a collector's item. At Daily Addiction coffee shop, the guy said, "Oh, no, you're not going to spend those $2 bills? I want them. How did you get them? Do you work for a bank?"
WATFORD CITY, N.D. -- Remember the days when learning about the passage of time was a fun thing? Counting the seconds in a minute and marking off the boxes on mom’s wall calendar in a birthday party countdown was met with a sort of anticipation that made the cake so much sweeter and the water balloon fight you had planned so much more thrilling.
Remember asking how many more hours until we got to Gramma’s? Or for five more minutes playing 7-UP outside with our friends?
Remember when car rides to town seemed like they lasted forever?
And so did summers.

BISMARCK, N.D. – More than 3,400 people from 49 states and eight foreign countries are registered for next week’s Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, with more expected to register when the conference begins May 20.
WILLISTON, N.D. - What's this world coming to?
You buy a new a $80,000, 6.2 Liter, 550-horsepower Duramax diesel, heavy duty truck, with off-road suspension, high-performance differential, 46-inch rims and tires and you insure it with a 15 minute toll free hotline call with a naked green lizard. And if you can gag the 15 minutes you can save 15 percent or more.
Here's what I don't understand: Why can you get a quote in 15 minutes but the claims can take up to 15 months?
