The Moon and Venus alvin July 16, 2018 - 10:26am

I just happened to look out the window last night (Sunday, July 15, 2018) at the right time and saw the Moon and Venus hanging out together.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop alvin June 16, 2018 - 10:39am

I can’t eat solid foods right now, but after the operation I’m going to check out Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Or go to Texas. One of those two. Maybe both.

Bald eagles next door (Broomfield, Colorado) alvin June 10, 2018 - 4:40pm

I came across quite a few bald eagles in Canada and Alaska, but didn’t know we had them right next door here in Colorado. I knew construction on this project had been held up for at least two years, and now I know why.

If you’re into rodeos, I’ve heard about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo every year since I moved to Colorado, but I haven’t been there yet. The dates for 2018 are July 20-29.

The battle for journalism in Colorado (and the Denver Post) alvin May 7, 2018 - 11:40am

When I first moved to Colorado I used to read the Denver Post, but for at least the last year I’ve read constant stories about reporting staff being gutted down to a bare-bones skeleton crew. These days I don’t even bother looking at it, which is a shame, because honest journalism is important in a free society.

Today the battle for journalism in Colorado continues, as employees of the Denver Post signed a letter about one of their colleagues being censored in the midst of what appears to be significant profit-taking by the newspaper ownership. (I saw “appears” because there is no mention of profit margins; every for-profit business must have a profit margin to stay in business.)

Ben, you will be missed alvin April 30, 2018 - 6:37pm

A really nice man named Ben who worked at the Walmart in Broomfield, Colorado passed away recently. We talked a lot and he told me many good stories over the last few years, including this one.

I don’t take too many photos of traffic intersections, but this is a favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. In this image I am on South Boulder Road, with the city of Boulder directly ahead.
