First Aid for a Boulder First Aid Kit

January 28th, 2024

We Boulderites often explore. We explore topics academically and practically. We explore various activities as hobbies and professionally. We use power tools, hand tools, kitchen knives, and a myriad of items with sharp edges, fast moving parts, and other traps for our various body parts. Sometimes we end up with blood, either ours or from the people we are working with. A table-top battle robot is supposed to be a threat to the other battle robots, not to the humans who are competing with their home shop built robots. Whether it is a “smart robot” or a brute force robot, building it... Read More

January 10th, 2024

      Boulder Dogs spread smiles throughout town. Dog friendly patios at restaurants add to that ambience.   Collies Are Truly Beautiful and Regal Dogs The Collie, renowned for its striking appearance and gentle demeanor, is a breed that has captured the hearts of dog lovers worldwide.

One of the most notable traits of Collies is their intelligence. These dogs are exceptionally smart,... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

January 8th, 2024

“I think when people look at me, the glasses imply I am smart, the messy hair that I am carefree and my clothing shows my inner geek. Still, when people look at me they don’t see the hardship and struggle that life has thrown my way nor the endless effort to improve and reach new heights each day. My earliest memories [were] a blur of new schools, new houses, new places to live- never holding still long enough to plant roots and create a home. When I first moved to Colorado I decided I was done moving and I knew that if I didn’t plant myself I might forever be at the mercy of... Read More

  M: “[Home is] where you feel like you should be at the moment… where you are exercising your gifts the most.” D: “Yeah, it is where you develop the most relationships that give you a sense of drive, where those relationships you form show you that they hold a lot of potential. Colorado definitely fits my idea of home.” -Debbie and Mille, Pearl Street    Read More

One Year on Wheels

May 27th, 2019

I am often asked if I miss having a house. My gut response is rather defensive. I have a house. It just happens to be silver, sits on wheels, and can be transported to any desired location via my car. So, the simple answer is no, I do not miss having a house. I have one. If only life were as easy as the simple answers. The more complicated (and therefore, more realistic) answer is yes, I miss having a house. And I still don’t mean the thing with four walls and windows and a door. Don’t let me fool you—I am most definitely plotting my dream homes over here (yes, plural). One is a black A-frame... Read More

In the Pursuit of Home

December 20th, 2018

Four hours ago, I blew a fuse on my inverter. Four hours and twenty minutes ago, I didn’t even know what an inverter was or that half the plugs in my Airstream were powered by an inverter, which is monumentally different (and altogether far less powerful) than those plugs that are grounded. Learning. Don’t plug a space heater into an inverter circuit. If you’re worried about my lack of electric plugs at this point in the story, don’t be. My grounded plugs are still working and my Airstream itself has power (praise God because it’s a whopping seven degrees outside). The major concern here... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

“My little boy, he’s two and a half, that’s really why I’m trying to get home. Otherwise I would stay here. I have my tent, I have everything I need, I would stay here, it’s no big deal. I’ve been fasting so I don’t even eat. His name is Augustine, he’s in Oklahoma…Since becoming a father it has helped me to connect with people and feel unconditional love for somebody, anybody, and in that way it kind of spreads to all people. It’s kind of why I’m not mad (being stranded in Boulder), because, you know, in a way we are all brothers and sisters, mother and fathers, and we’re... Read More
