A younger man I occasionally mentor today asked me for investment advice. I gently declined as my track record is dismal.
Bought at the urging of a co-worker whose father was shepherding the first ever sale of Microsoft stock in the Spokane stock exchange, I only held my position for four years.
While living in the Seattle area, I saw the emergence of the espresso coffee craze. I didn’t get involved as I couldn’t believe people would stand in line for ten minutes and then pay $1.25 for a cup of coffee.
Currently I seem to be in a disgruntled state unable to raise much passion for anything. There are interesting things going on in the Centennial State.
Republicans continuing their country club gentry’s ways.
Even the “woke” occasionally get slapped.
Cry me a river, trust fund snots.
We know what is best for you. Often we must bend the law and misappropriate funds to do so.
The costs of “green” energy are going to slap people in the wallet this winter. IMO, just a taste of what must come. https://coloradosun.com/2021/07/26/xcel-rate-increase-renewable-energy-grid/
The mayor hasn’t weighed in. He is former Congressman Mike Coffman and he is nobody’s tool.
Back in the day, a big fight was over the routing of I-70. Two routes were considered, US 6 and US 40. Both required tunnels under the Continental Divide. The geology of the proposed US 40 tunnels was known as the railroad Moffat Tunnel and an existing water diversion tunnel was in the area.
A twelve term Congressman, Wayne Aspinall (D) Palisade (near Grand Junction) along US 6 forced the current route. Now when Glenwood Canyon has frequent forced closures along with De Beque Canyon, traffic is diverted to the two lanes US 40.
Motorist can enjoy the approaches to the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels (at 11,000’ ASL) and Vail Pass (10,640’ ASL) when the route is open. Along the way they can marvel at the miles of 12’ high animal control fences lining the route.
Just a side note, the geology of the I-70 tunnels was a nightmare, doubling costs and construction time. Who would have thunk?
In other news, my health is improving. The Urologist has approved increased exercise and the Primary has me down to two prescription drugs (blood pressure and water retention). Both are the smallest doses available.
Given time I will soon be back to my perpetually outraged self.
