An Island on the Hill – Boulders Tulagi Bar

February 4th, 2023

Through a combination of nostalgia and legend, some pieces of Boulder never fully disappear. Maybe the best example was an ordinary building in the middle of the Hill known as Tulagi. On walking inside, you were hit with the smell of decades of beer being poured, consumed, and spilled. Past the Tiki-ish foyer, you were deposited into the venue, with an open dance floor as simple as the stage at its head. On either side were raised sitting areas with built-in benches and stacked-stone walls, under-lit to give the feel of a cavern-come-club. Surrounding was a mural with various scenes—all sun-drenched... Read More

Bats; Our Silent Defender

February 2nd, 2023

Bats are often portrayed as creatures of horror. They’re popular around Halloween and in Scooby Doo intros, and they don’t spring to mind as being cute or friendly, but Boulder has actually befriended the bat, and now they’re existence in our ecosystem is essential, and they’re proving to be quite a good friend to have.

Walk your way to joy! Finding peace, one step at a time.

February 2nd, 2023

One of the greatest challenges we find along our life journey or spiritual path is to feel love and compassion for ourselves. It requires that we treat ourselves well, and give ourselves time and space to be still, to re-fuel, to rest and to gather our resources.’Self-care’ is a term we hear a lot now, and it means just this – finding ways, no matter how small and seemingly unimpressive, to find some peace for a moment. In this busy and pressured lifestyle we often have, we need this time to rest and to remember who we are and how we operate without the busy-ness. When we choose to... Read More

The CU Celebrity Scene Timeline

February 1st, 2023

CU Boulder is the home to, and birthplace of, many “celebrities”. I use the word celebrity loosely because some of the successful and well-known people who have sprung from the University of Colorado work behind the scenes and not in front of the camera. The list of CU successes is a large one, consisting of scholarly award winners, astronauts, athletes, politicians and journalists. Hundreds and hundreds of alumni are recognized for their outstanding achievements in their various fields. However, I will focus on the alumni who are largely in the public eye and whose names you will likely recognize. Brandon... Read More

Flashback ~ Back In The Days When I Used A Record Player…

January 31st, 2023

Music is accessible in so many ways now in 2014, and it is honestly a wonderful phenomenon thanks to technology. However, a large majority of people my age or younger are not too familiar with a wonderful piece of equipment known as a record player, or by its more popular name a turntable. Once you hear a song on vinyl, especially a song you really enjoy, it does not matter what else you have heard it on: it will most likely not compare. The sound of the needle touching a record, the requirement of moving the arm to as close to the edge of the record of possible, and once you catch a whiff of the... Read More

The Best Sandwich Shop in Boulder

January 28th, 2023

Snarf: eat or drink quickly or greedily What does an obscure name, wacky logo, and bright pinks and blues bring to mind? Snarf’s, of course! The sandwich shop based out of Boulder, Colorado has made a name for itself and spread to locations across the country because of its high quality ingredients and fresh baked bread. The high points of any trip have to be their made-in-house spicy pepper blend (which you can buy jarred–something I only recently learned that has changed my life) and their crispy-on-the-outside chewy-on-the-inside bread. The bread is sourced from Bluepoint Bakery,... Read More
