Equal Rights?
I'm pondering the balance of justice between my neighbors' right to engage in a legal activity inside their own home, and my right to not be forced to breathe second-hand pot smoke. I either get to broil inside my house with all the windows closed, or else second-hand breathe a substance I have never chosen to use.

This is just another example of how flawed the world is. One person's freedom should not infringe upon that of someone else. I'm not trying to force my choices on anyone else, I just wish they would think about how the way they exercise their freedom of choice affects others. They could keep their windows closed while they smoke, but of course that would mean they would be broiling inside their house.

I'm going to try a window box fan blowing outwards to see if that will help cool the house while keeping the smoke from coming... more »

Do you leave a tip for the housekeeper every day you stay in a hotel? If not, why not?

I worked in housekeeping for about ten years in my younger days, and rarely was tipped. Cleaning is physical, frequently disgusting, with stressful turnover deadlines, long hours, and busiest on weekends and holidays. Just as much as a restaurant waiter, these hard workers deserve the respect and appreciation of a tip.

Live stream of the Corpse Flower at DBG
The Corpse Flower, or Carrion Flower, Amorphophallus titanum, can take up to ten years to bloom. The flower, which can reach over 10 feet tall, only lasts from 12 to 48 hours. It smells like rotting meat, thus its name. Native to Sumatra, the specimen at the +Denver Botanic Gardens is about to bloom. Watch the live feed, provided by 9 News, linked below.

"Curiosity" - New in the Sojourns Art Gallery

I was on a photo expedition on a beautiful fall day, up on Boreas Pass, Breckenridge, Colorado. I parked in a pullout and got out to take some pictures, and when I turned around, this little fox was about ten feet away. It then proceeded to jump up onto my car, then go into the open window. I was dumbfounded! It jumped in and out several times, then finally popped its head out the window, with my half-eaten snack bar in its mouth (I swear it was grinning), jumped out, and raced into the forest. Little rascal! At least it posed for me first!

SNEAK PEAK ~ Today was an exciting day in the studio - I began work on the first piece of the Micro Portraits project. This will be a mixed media piece. I started with an ink, pencil, and charcoal sketch, then finished with oil paint. I completed the first prototype today, experimenting with layering techniques and blending the different media. The texturing is not quite what I had envisioned, so I will be working on that some more next time. 

This image is a black and white, and I had a lot of fun mixing paint to come up with the right shade of gray. You might think it would be a simple matter of mixing black and white to get gray, but not so! The plain mixture of black and white had too much of a blue cast to it, so I ended up adding in burnt umber to get the gray shade that I was looking for.

It was a little bittersweet working with the paints. I had bought my mom this set of oil paints and brushes that she had talked about for a long time. But she died soon after, and never had the chance to use them. I brought them home and hid them on the top shelf of my closet - it hurt too much to think about for awhile. But now I'm finally ready to stretch my creativity into new methods of expression, and I feel like I'm honoring her memory by using her paint set.

Windows 10 Upgrade? - Not yet
I am by no means a tech person. I'm just a basic daily user, and this is just my personal, non-tech opinion.

I'm taking tech pro +Gordon Kelly's advice, and waiting to upgrade from Windows 7. Why? After searching Google and reading a number of articles touting the benefits of upgrading, I was about to go ahead and do it. Then I came across Mr. Kelly's article (http://goo.gl/E2QNQs). He was straightforward in revealing what I consider to be an unforgivable flaw in Windows 10 - forced updates. 

To quote from Mr. Kelly's article, "Easily the most controversial factor about Windows 10 is what you give up for the free update: Control. ...  In just the last week a bad graphics driver and a buggy security update were automatically installed on millions of Windows 10 beta testers computers and caused repeated crasheso... more »

Windows 10 Upgrade? - Not yet
I am by no means a tech person. I'm just a basic daily user, and this is just my personal, non-tech opinion.

I'm taking tech pro +Gordon Kelly's advice, and waiting to upgrade from Windows 7. Why? After searching Google and reading a number of articles touting the benefits of upgrading, I was about to go ahead and do it. Then I came across Mr. Kelly's article (http://goo.gl/E2QNQs). He was straightforward in revealing what I consider to be an unforgivable flaw in Windows 10 - forced updates. 

To quote from Mr. Kelly's article, "Easily the most controversial factor about Windows 10 is what you give up for the free update: Control. ...  In just the last week a bad graphics driver and a buggy security update were automatically installed on millions of Windows 10 beta testers computers and caused repeated crashes on many machines without warning. If the troublesome updates were removed, Windows 10 automatically reinstalled them again. ... Worryingly historically Microsoft has a poor record with updates and there have been some epic Windows patch meltdowns and “40 or so” problematic patches have been released by Windows Update in 2015 alone."

My brain is hardwired towards familiarity. While my husband can jump into any vehicle and be three blocks away with one leg still hanging out the door, I get into a different car than my own, and I have to sit there for 10 minutes figuring out where everything is before I can start driving.

I still beat eggs with a fork. I don't care if the egg beater does is faster and better. The fork works just fine, it's easy and familiar for me. Why should I be forced into using an egg beater if I don't want to - or if that particular day isn't convenient for me to learn a new technique?

My husband and dad are both even less techy than I am, so I'm the one they turn to for help when they can't do something on their computers. My dad has Vista, and my husband has Windows 8. From my perspective, both programs suck. Big time. As in, I loathe them. If I were forced into using them, there's a good chance I'd go back to the dark ages of sharpening pencils and using the green Wilson Jones columnar pads and double-entry bookkeeping that I learned in high school.

If something goes wrong with my computer, I'm stuck until I can get help from a tech person. I am self-employed, in a one-person office. The running of my business screeches to an abrupt halt if my computer has issues. Given +Microsoft Corporation's track record of epic update fails, the thought of forced updates that are likely to backfire puts me on the verge of a panic attack. 

So ... for the time being, I'm sticking with my sturdy Windows 7, and will wait to see what develops.___

3 cheers for CDOT getting tough!

"We are shutting down I-70 westbound into the mountains at Golden (mm259). Heavy wet snow and icy conditions. When we reopen cars (yes cars!) must have chains or snow tires to travel to the high country. WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS!" - Respect to all those snow plow drivers, they are heroes. And cheers to CDOT for closing I-70 today, I only wish they would enforce with this amount of vigor full-time:___3 cheers for CDOT getting tough!

The Sunday storm left the local ski areas with 6 -9 inches of snow, and a couple of inches on yards and decks down in town. ~ Our weather is supposed to dry out now and give us one more shot at fall before the next more wintry storm comes in at the end of the month.

"Leaving Fall Behind" ~ I went for a drive this afternoon to see the last of the fall color. It is such a beautiful season, but so short.

Our beautiful fall weather is giving way to more wintry weather this week. The mountains are so pretty with fresh snow sprinkles on top!

Snow on the peaks and a fuzzy caterpillar ..... winter is coming!

Don't miss the final best days of fall color this week, the forecast says a windy cold front may blast the leaves off next weekend.

Peak fall color this week! ~ A cold front around September 28 may bring snow down to 10,000 feet, with lots of wind that could end up stripping off most of the leaves, so that means this could be the best final week for viewing fall color. We just spent three days camping and driving around north/central Colorado, and the colors are spectacular right now. Grab your camera and head for the closest mountains! Plowing season is just six weeks away.

Amazingly Beautiful!

His family has been in the business of making cabinets and other woodwork, which explains his superlative fascination with wood. From a young age, Valerii has been working with wood on a miniature scale, crafting a 3cm long guitar with actual hair as strings during his school days.

This is cool.

This is the Ryme Intrinsica Public Library! 
When the old telephone box was decommissioned, the residents of this tiny village south of Sherborne kept it on as the village library.

If the few scattered yellow leaves weren't enough evidence that Fall has begun in the high country, we had the first sprinkling of snow on the Continental Divide last night.

El Nino is always a crapshoot for Summit County - it will depend on the Oscillations and where the jet stream ends up. We have our fingers crossed for a good snow year!

It's still too early to tell, but it's looking like an average winter at the least, and if all the pieces fall into place, maybe a great snow year.
