This is a long post. I hope you’ll read it all, but if you want to skim, please start here. The last 24 hours have been hard. Like so many of our friends, Al and I started the night full of hope. Of course, we knew the margins. What seemed guaranteed only a few weeks ago, now looked […]
I’ve been as excited about Apple Pay as the next guy. I’m also keenly aware that it doesn’t work everywhere. I just hope that the credits can be converted so that I can use it on 666 casino to play casino games. And when you live in a small city like Grand Junction, CO, your […]

I, for the moment, have dual citizenship. I have an apartment in Denver and an apartment in Grand Junction, CO. Both. At the same time … also … I’m moving again.
