Today is the last edition of the Pulitzer-prize winning paper,
The Rocky Mountain News.
Considered to be one of the finest papers in our country
since it began printing 150 years ago.
Due to this economic crisis and the evolution of media to online and tv, this beautiful paper had to stop its presses today and lay off the entire staff.
I wish those people the very best.

One of my favorite places to eat is this funky, artsy, hole-in-a-wall diner near the CU campus.
I ate there today and got my favorite dish: Greek Eggs with garlic, tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese.
The waiters and cooks are great characters and the art on the walls is always quirky and local.
Got to love a diner!!!!!!

This is Hwy 36 that leads straight into Boulder.
It gives you a great view of the Flatirons and Foothills.
This town is filled with rock climbers that have plotted out many different kinds of routes on these rocks.
The rocks all have names too, like: The Front Porch, The Slab, Angel's Way, The Devil's Thumb, etc.....

And now for something completely different...
The Hamburger Chair.
I took my son for a burger the other day and the kids room was filled with chairs like this. He thought it was great fun.
I thought it looked a bit bizarre and surreal ;)

This creek runs through town and, for many parts of it, there is a bike/pedestrian path that follows it.
It is what I would consider the veins of the town, whereby, the Flatirons are the heart.
The creek has wonderful festivals next to it in spring and summer, people that travel down it on innertubes and kayaks, museums and teahouses that sit by it, and parks that line it.
We love the CREEK!

This is a sculpture by the Nature Conservancy and the leaves are made of copper (I think) - just love the delicate nature of it.
My internet connection is super spotty right now, so I am having a hard time getting online to post. Hope to be rocking and rolling again soon..
Happy Friday Everybody!!!!

Spring is around the corner (sort of), so I am getting
my plants ready in the kitchen window!
Dwarf sunflowers, purple basil and coleus are in production right now! It gives me joy, and my son a thrill, to see these fresh green sprouts when its still VERY MUCH Winter outside.
