Driving from Boulder, Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico

If you ever need to drive from the Boulder/Denver, Colorado area to (or from) Santa Fe, New Mexico, the gray route on the left in this image is the most scenic, the one to take if you only get one shot at it. Lots of mountain views and ranches, and many small towns.

Once you get off of I-25, the blue road that goes through Taos is also very scenic, and is particularly pretty in the winter. I usually take the gray road back to Colorado, and the Taos road down to Santa Fe.

D-Mac on 104.3 The Fan: “To be honest with you ...” alvin March 25, 2017 - 6:08pm

There’s a guy on a local radio station (104.3 The Fan) named Darren McKee (who guys by the name “D-Mac”), and he constantly uses a phrase that drives me crazy:

“To be honest with you ...”

As I wrote in my book, A Survival Guide for New Consultants, you should never use that phrase.

Why? Because using it for some sentences implies that you aren’t being honest with every other sentence that comes out of your mouth.

John Elway: Look for heart first alvin September 7, 2016 - 5:57pm

This is a good espn.com article about John Elway. This is my favorite quote regarding programming and running a business: “He based his approach to scouting on Jack’s golden rule: ‘Look for heart first.’”

Sandy Clough is returning to 104.3 The Fan alvin July 21, 2016 - 12:25pm

For those who have been waiting for it, Sandy Clough will be returning to 104.3 The Fan this coming Monday.

Where is Sandy Clough? (Denver sports radio, The Fan)

Update: July 20, 2016: According to the link I share below, Sandy Clough will be returning to 104.3 The Fan this coming Monday in a new time slot: 10am to noon, a time slot he occupied when I first moved to the Denver area. He will be replacing Cecil Lammey in that time slot, and much to my chagrin it appears that CJ and Stokley will continue in the noon-3pm time slot.
