  • September 2, 2017

There’s Got to Be Something Magical about This Four O’Clock Hour

  • August 9, 2016

Have you ever heard of Mirabilis Jalapa? No? Me either. Perhaps maybe you have heard of them by their more popular name, “Four O’Clocks?” Still no? It’s okay, but there has got to be something magical about this four o’clock hour for a South American flower to take on this moniker, and for a Breckenridge ski run (and road) to epitomize it as well. Hold on, back to the flower for a minute. These “Four O’Clocks” are aptly named this because the flowers open in the late afternoon and stay open until morning.

So Long, Farewell…

  • April 3, 2015

_________________________________________________________________ It is with a bit of a sniffle that we bid farewell to yodeling and lederhosen jokes.  And our fearless leader, Brigitte Rath, who once had the patience to try to teach me to say 'cutie' in her Austrian dialect, but I ran out of saliva on my second attempt.

I Wanna Be Like Eduardo

  • October 18, 2014

I have been under contract to buy a house since August 26th of this year. It has been…something else.  Actually, it's always something else.  I gave them everything.  Pretty much anything I'd touched in the past six months that had a number on it.  Only to find out they needed something else.  An explanation of this $20 deposit, a picture of a dollar bill drawn by my eldest.  A side of fries.  You get the idea. For the record, I have not closed yet. It has been delayed twice since October 1st. Though, the other day I was reassured it will happen. The underwriting...
