One of Our Deejays is Fixing a Car Dent with Hot Water [Video]
I'd been planning on re-organizing / cleaning out the top of my garage for... well, too long, come to find out.  I was replacing a worn-out bike hoist Saturday, when suddenly a 2x4 that was stashed there fell, landed on the back window of my car, bounced off, and dented and scuffed part of…
Trilby Closed At The Railroad Crossing
I keep a calendar on my phone that I look at numerous times a week.  Still, do you think I looked at it this morning before remembering this?  Of course not :)
The railroad crossing is being repaired, so Trilby road is closed at this location between Shields and College...
Local Animal Expert Debunks ‘1 Year = 7 Dog Years’ Rule
If one year equals seven dog years, then my black lab is 112, and probably the oldest dog ever to dart long distances after a tennis ball like her life depends on it.
Something isn't right there.
So, it was neat yesterday when my longtime friend Andrea, who's a veterinary scholar (and clinical instruc…

What Are The Laws On Fireworks?
Fort Collins:  ALL fireworks, including sparklers and snakes, are illegal to sell, possess, or use. (Up to $2750 fine.)  Cross the legal lines of city limits, however, and you will see some fireworks stands, my friend.  And last year was the first year that I enjoyed some from Co…

It's been happening since the 1930s, when the Salvation Army started serving doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
Going on 100 years later, you and I can get a free doughnut (or 'donut') today, in almost any town in Northern Colorado...
Bad GPS Directions Eat Up A Surprising Amount Of Time
A couple weeks back I was goin' somewhere new in Denver, and it dawned on me how amazing it is, the CONFIDENCE we can now have while driving somewhere completely strange... thanks to Google Maps, Waze, Apple Maps, the navigation system built into your car, or your 2003 Garmin that really should…
Top Thing Kids Want To Be When They Grow Up? YouTube Star
With new (ahem) career choices opening up in Colorado the past few years, it's interesting to read that teen marijuana use has dramatically decreased.  So, while the rest of the world might assume we'll all grow up and run dispensaries - not that there's a thing wrong with that -…
Where To Take Those Fallen Tree Limbs
I saw one on Taft Hill yesterday that was literally this big, and had fallen from at least two stories up.  Can you say "hard hat zone?"

Only a couple of small limbs fell into my yard, which is perfect, as I'll let those dry behind the shed, then use them in the fire pit..…
Check Out This Homeless Outreach In Fort Collins
I think it was about 2004, when I asked a friend if he wanted to go out one Friday night, and he told me he had to get up early the next morning, to make breakfast burritos and bring them to the homeless.  That was a new, unexpected idea, so I went along...
