Peter Michaud on the secret about writing: If you’ve never written anything thoughtful, then you’ve never had any difficult, important, or interesting thoughts. That’s the secret: people who don’t write, are people who don’t think.
Beer and Investing
I normally don’t post jokes, but my sister sent me this and I thought it was quite appropriate for the times. If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago…you would have $42 left. Lehman Bros… $6.60 left… Fannie or Freddie… You would have less then $5 left. BUT, If you had purchased […]
Welcome to Boulder
The other evening I went bouldering on Flagstaff Mountain above Boulder. The after work climbing scene was quite crowded as I expected, but on the way home I witnesses the strangest thing.

Moving to Colorado

The first line of this New York Times article sums it up best: “…some innovations are like Post-it notes: you didn’t know you needed them until they were invented.” As a coffee addict, I always have an eye out for articles on coffee, specifically caffeine. I think I’m looking for pro-caffeine articles to use as […]
Acceptable uses of the "f" word
As this was one of those miserable days when everything is going wrong, this post on the eleven acceptable times in history to use the “F” word from Brad Feld had me cracking up and brightened my day. Thanks for sharing the insight and humor, Brad!
McDonaldâ??s expects to roll out premium coffee
As a coffee addict, I would say that McDonaldâ??s rolling out premium coffee is a boon to java drinkers everywhere. Not that I expect it to be all that good, but the ability to grab a decent cup of coffee on almost every corner (and every exit of the interstate) is welcome.
