Entertaining The Kids In Metro Denver

The unseasonably warm weather this March fooled Coloradoans into thinking spring is actually here. However, I’ve experienced Colorado snowstorms in May. My Texas brother swears it snowed one Fourth of July when he visited Denver and we attended a fireworks show. I remember it was cold; my pictures prove that I loaned his wife a heavy coat.

Mobile Devices

Lee: Have you noticed that technology sales people will only describe where a device or plan works well.  Wouldn’t you love it if sales people said things like “this device really sucks at XYZ”?  It would be much more helpful.

Bob: That’s why we’re here.  This is an inverse sales pitch regarding mobile devices and plans. The key word of the column is “sucks”.

Finding Fossils Close to Home

I moved to Colorado from Texas right out of college when I was hired to teach in Jefferson County. I stood awestruck at the sight of Red Rocks Amphitheater from the playground of Bear Creek Elementary. Amazed, I listened to my second graders talk about collecting arrowheads at nearby Soda Lakes. Our favorite unit included dinosaurs and a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Denver. That was a long time ago.

Glue 101: It’s A Sticky Situation (How Tacky)

So, your old wooden dining room chair finally came apart after being loose and wiggly when anyone sat on it (for the last two years!).  Hopefully no one hit the floor when it broke. You go to the big box home center to buy some glue to repair the chair and are confronted by six shelves full of so many different types of adhesives that your head starts to spin. All you want to do is put your chair back together, but what product would be the best for that task?

To Fly Or Drive, That Is The Question This Summer

Many years ago my friend’s nine-year -old daughter suggested the family buy a motor home so they could drive to Hawaii. Little did she know that sometimes a destination can only be reached by airplanes or boats. With gas prices rising hourly, Channel 9 News did a study recently on which is cheaper: to fly or drive. So, I did a comparison of my own for our Minnesota trip to celebrate a 100th birthday over July 4th.
