Thanks McStupid and Mr. Bowlen

THANK YOU McSTUPID AND MR. BOWLEN I would like to thank the coach and owner of the Broncos for reducing my wardrobe, closet space, and what to wear in the morning choices to at least half.  In fact, I had not even realized how much of my wardrobe consisted of Bronco clothing of one type or another.Of course, I have an Elway jersey.  And to go along with it there is a McCaffery Jersey.  I am not sure that I want to admit it, but, yes, there was a Plummer Jersey in there too. And the T Shirts. …See More

WEEDS TO GO?

Well, the media is reporting that the city says they are going to cutthe weeds in the medians, etc.  And they say it should be accomplishedin 4-6 WEEKS.  Of course, by then we could have had our first snow---I hope not, but it is possible.I have been wondering, and maybe there is a lawyer out there who cananswer this --- What would happen of a citizen went into the citycouncil meeting and made citizen's arrests of the mayor and the councilmembers for violating the cities weed statues?See More

DON'T BE A JOB KILLER

DON’T BE A JOB KILLER I know I have addressed this before and others probably have too, but observations at various retail outlets recently have “lit my ire” Each time I have been in Lowes on Powers, two different Safeways, two different King Soopers, and two different Walmarts in the past month or so I have seen the ‘self-checkout’ lines quite busy.  Each time I ask myself if the people using these lines realize that theyare helping the store with the elimination of jobs.  Because Theyare! I…See More

Adopt WHAT???

We have seen the city tell us we can adopt a street light to have it turned back on. There has been discussion of adopting city parks for watering the grass,and, of course, we could adopt a trash can in a park to help controllitter.Well,,,while driving through streets in our town theother day, weaving to miss, but often jouncing and bumping, it occurredto me that it might solve our overwhelming pothole problem by organizingan Adopt a Pothole program.  I'm not sure just what it costs to fill…See More

Hi Rod! I'm just being curious about the comment you left for Anne Nowlin...is there a writing group in htis area? I just moved here from PA a few months back and would like to join one in the near future (mainly I'm waiting until after my significant other deploys...until then I'm spending all my time with him). You can reach me at s.brosious@hotmail.com Thanks!

Rod I heard you are an accomplished author in print. I sure would like to be one too.
My memoirs are complete and ready to publish but I don't know how to go about it or where to get my manuscript in front of the right people. Can you give me any direction
please. Thanks for the consideration and help.

Jim Robinson
