We’ve been in Colorado for about 5 weeks. Although there’s been a bit more rain that I’d like, it has been fantastic. Some hightlights: We’ve taken two trips away from GL: one to Leadville, the another to Steamboat Springs. Each was unique and nice.

Apparently known as the I-65 killer, the man, now deceased, was identified through genealogy and DNA evidence, which is pretty interesting. Nice and interesting article. There’s also a video to […]
This week’s topic focuses on the US Supreme Court’s recent 8-1 ruling regarding the process for executing death row inmates in the State of Texas. The ARTICLE focuses on Ramirez v Collier, a case that involved a death row inmates request to have his pastor lay hands on him and pray out loud during his […]
Not sure how many watched last night’s video from the Oscars where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith’s partner. Here is the VIDEO as well as the commentary from members of The View. I’ve been a fan of the Oscars for years as I’m a […]
