So once again, no posts this week (well, not counting this one anyway). But we’ve been hard at work on Red, Gold, and Madness in various ways. We’ll post more info about these projects here, or on Catherine’s various social media sites, as it comes along. Continue reading
Hey Snowflakes, with no FK recap and no Friday Roundup this week, I know it looks like Catherine is slacking. And to be totally honest she was relaxing on Friday at the Cherry Creek State Park reservoir beach. However that was a well deserved day off because we’ve been hard at work preparing for the re-release of Black and the release of Red.
Catherine took her family for a little jaunt up the mountain to explore Breckenridge, Colorado. See the highly abridged version in our slideshow.
Catherine ran across Triceratops Trail while surfing the web. Since it’s dinos, FREE, and only about 45 minutes away, we had to go check it out. It’s a nice little hike if you’re in the area, although not a good place for those with mobility issues. So take a look at our slideshow and enjoy.
I’ve been accepted for the Tattered Cover Book Store consignment program! I will be on sale, in print, at Denver’s premiere local bookstore. Details to come!
Colorado is a gorgeous state in general, and the City of Golden is no exception. Sitting at the foot of the Rocky Mountains (west of Denver, and just north of the I-70) it has beautiful views and manages to retain some old world charm while still existing in the 21st century.
Fun Facts about Golden:
Founded during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush (16 June 1859), it’s named not for gold, but in honor of miner Thomas L. Golden.
Golden is the birth place of Jolly Rancher candies. In 1949 Bill and Dorothy Harmsen opened the Jolly Rancher candy store where they sold their own candy.
The Coors Brewing Company was founded in Golden by German immigrants Adolph Coors and Jacob Schueler. The Coors brewery in Golden is the largest single site brewery in the world.
Golden is also the home of the Colorado School of Mines. Mines is a public teaching and research university dedicated to engineering and applied sciences. It was rated as the #1 university for ROI by Businessweek.
Note: Some of these facts I already knew, but some I learned from Wikipedia. I’d just like to say thanks to Wikipedia and everyone who contributes. If you can spare $5, please donate and keep this wonderful resource free for the world to use.
