Images from a Colorado road trip (morning fog, sunrise)

Here are a few images from a road trip I started on September 10, 2018. These are pictures from eastern Colorado early that morning, taken probably anywhere between Limon and western Kansas.

2018 Colorado election: Judges - Democrat or Republican

I just filled out my ballot for the 2018 Colorado election, and the part about voting for judges is a little weird. One of the weird parts about the ballot is that you can’t tell if a judge is a Democrat (what the Colorado ballot refers to as Democratic) or Republican. True, judges are supposed to be independent, but all of these judges were appointed by a Democrat or Republican politician.

So, if it helps anyone else, these are the judges that were on my ballot, and I show whether they were appointed by a Democratic or Republican politician:

Family in town

Sorry, it's a quiet week here on I have family in town this week on vacation, and they're keeping me pretty busy.

Domata Peko and the national anthem

I’m a fan of Domata Peko of the Denver Broncos. This video helps to show why I like him, he seems like a bundle of happy energy, a real positive force. (There’s also that whole war battle thing, too.)

A dream about Don Monk, college professor

Have you ever felt like you were having someone else’s dream? This morning (July 24, 2017) I was having a “back to school (college)” dream, and thought, okay, whatever, I’m bored, I’ll go with it.

The short story is that when I woke up I remembered that one of the teachers was named Don Monk. I figured that was a name made up by my brain, but I googled it just now and found two college professors with that name, one at Rutgers, and the other just down the road at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
