So, we had MY WAY DAY. Now it's time for Inconvenience yourself day. Celebrated on the 4th Wednesday of every February, this date is the complete opposite of My Way Day. Today is all about finding things to do that are an inconvenience to you, but a help to someone else. So many times we all get wrapped up in our own daily life and what we need to get done and forget about helping others. Funny how this comes right after the 100th Anniversary of the Scouts. A large part of their motto is to always help other people. I think most of us help others, when we can. When it's convenient. So, for today (and hopefully on other days as well) help someone out. Go "out of your way" to make a difference for someone today. Maybe it's a relative. Go visit Grandma. Maybe it's to help someone carry pac...

The Voice of Aurora: Complete the widening of I-225 with FasTracks work (edit/delete) From the Aurora Sentinel, Colorado is like any other government, a massive bureaucracy slow to turn once momentum has begun. Still, the state has long shown a penchant for rising to the call and exhibiting a pluckiness indicative of life in the West.It is those attributes that have made it illegal to slander broccoli, an effort to protect the farmers in the state, and to lead the nation in requiring an open and accessible government. In Colorado, when the chips are down, its residents and leaders are not.That's the attitude needed to keep the state from wasting millions of increasingly rare taxpayer dollars in how and when it builds new light rail tracks along the Interstate 225 corridor and eventuall...

Aurora, Colo., boasts some sales bargains Close to Home: Aurora, Colo., boasts some sales bargains - This USATODAY.com article examines a major benefit of living in Aurora: home prices.  In the city's core neighborhoods, modest homes built in the 1940s and 1950s abound.  Aurora's median sales price in December jumped 10.6% from December a year ago.  Home foreclosures have slowed, which pushed prices up, as did a reduction in home inventory because of brisk fall sales.  The Anschutz expansion is revitalizing nearby neighborhoods because of the many doctors, nurses and support personnel working there.  "There was a lot of foreclosure in those areas, and now because of the impact of the medical center, we are finding people coming in and buying those houses," said David Barber, president o...

Iwo Jima Day 65 years ago this morning, the Marines landed on Iwo Jima. The battle raged on until March 16th. It was then that the final battle tally was realized. There were 21,000 Japanese soldiers defending Iwo Jima. There were only 1,083 survivors. Of the  Marines that fought in the battle, 4,189 were killed and over 19,000 were injured. To this day, there is still an argument whether this small island of volcanic ash and a few small airfields was worth the price that was paid. Strategically speaking, it is a great location. Almost halfway between Tokyo and Saipan. The position allowed any occupying force the ability to refuel and attack in either direction. This allowed the planes to carry more ammunition and less fuel. What is mot in dispute, is the fact that so many gave their li...

Does anyone like eating pancakes? Raise your hand!! (mine is raised, FYI.) Today is International Pancake Day. The pancake is about as universal a breakfast item as anything in the world. For anyone that has ever gone into an IHOP, you know that there are as many different ways to serve it as you can think of. From Cinnamon to apple to pumpkin to the good old fashioned buttermilk with maple syrup - there is something you will love. Many areas are have races and fundraisers today. Eat pancakes and donate to charity - great combination. If you are looking to get a free stack of pancakes, The International House of Pancakes will be giving away short stacks on National Pancake Day - February 23rd, 2010.   So, let's raise our forks and in in to an International tradition.

Wow!!! What a title! Love makes the World go 'Round; but Laughter keeps us from getting dizzy week. With Valentine's Day this weekend - love is in the air. Some people say too much love everywhere, enough to drive you crazy. So, to combat that, they have created Love makes the World go 'Round; but Laughter keeps us from getting dizzy week. With the spirit of that in mind, I thought that I would share a few. ""I have to have a raise in my commission," the agent said to his manager. "There are three other companies after me.""Is that so?" asked the manager. "What other companies are after you?""The electric company, the telephone company, and the gas company."                                                A client bought a new home and the broker wanted to send flowers for the occasion. ...
