I don’t know what the exact numbers are, but Colorado is growing very rapidly, especially in this area where I live in the cities near Boulder. On a walk today I counted that 66 out of 220 license plates I saw were out-of-state license plates, meaning that a whopping 30% of my neighbors are from out of state and haven’t changed their license plates yet.
While traveling recently for a niece’s wedding, I saw that John Cusack will be at the Louisville Palace on August 1, 2019. I was tempted to buy a ticket (or two), but managed to control myself. :)
Just saw that Guns n’ Roses will be playing at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky this fall.
This won’t mean anything to anyone else, but while cleaning stuff off of my phone just now I ran across this photo of a house I once called home.
Here’s a little plug for my business systems analyst services that I offer in the Boulder/Louisville, Colorado area: A Boulder, Colorado User Story Mapping example on the Valley Programming website. It’s a short example that demonstrates user story mapping using my Radio Pi project (which was first conceived in Boulder) as an example. User story mapping is a great technique for creating a shared understanding of a complete software system.
I found a little ice skating rink in downtown Louisville, Colorado recently. Looks like it would be fun at night. :)
This is a photo of some snowy trees in Louisville, Colorado, on March 27, 2018. I had to get up early to go to a physical therapy appointment and I was rewarded with this view.
Apparently I can’t sleep tonight so I’ll tell one of those stories.
A couple of weeks ago I’m enjoying the darkness of some quiet sleep, just kind of meditating in the darkness with nothing going on in my brain. Then as I’m laying there an image of a toilet in a closet appears. It’s a small closet that feels cramped, and the toilet/commode is sitting sideways in it. My brain isn’t in “just observe and report” mode – it starts thinking too much – so right away I crank my virtual head from one side to the other like a little puppy, trying to figure out this perplexing image, and wondering how you’re supposed to go to the bathroom with this toilet sitting sideways in this small closet. So my brain tries to grok that for a while, but it can’t figure out why the heck the toilet is the way it is.
I had to go to a physical therapy appointment early this morning in Louisville, Colorado, and one benefit of getting up early were some beautiful views of the overnight snow, clouds on one side of the sky, and sunshine on the other.
It’s going to be a white Christmas here in the Boulder/Broomfield, Colorado area, ho ho ho.
