Tuesday Two-Fer.

It’s a Tuesday Two-Fer. Ok, so a bit of a play on what continues to be a fixture of terrestrialExempla Lutheran General Hospital radio stations.

We’re now into the third week of January 2013 and things are looking better. The lovely and talented lady of the house, is back at work. She’s been given a clean bill of health from the cardiologist and her personal physician. We can now put the past three weeks behind us and move ahead.

Last week I wrote about Blog Analytics and SEO.So far this month of the current 22 postings, only three have not been green, per WordPress SEO by Yoast. In a quick visual look at the analytics, I’m not seeing a great or consistent increase in traffic here yet. Yes I know it’s a journey and I’ll continue to take the long view.

I’m also noticing how different blogs handle their comments. I’ve been making topical comments on a wide variety of blogs, over the past week. Yes I know this is a journey as well, in order to begin to establish the blog and my writing. In the commenting process I’ve noticed that in no particular order or type of blog, there are those which require login or registration in order to comment on a post.

Now, I think I know why, and since I’m new to this, I’ll defer to the experts to pontificate and proclaim on this subject. Please feel free to comment and opine on the matter.

I’m still looking to see how I can credibly and or properly get a video to conform to the WordPress SEO by Yoast criteria. The same would go for an audio clip or podcast as well. In both cases these type of posts would be focused on the video and or the audio content and not upon the writing content.

This is a short week with yesterday being a federal holiday, so have a great rest of your week.

“Peaceful” Potheads Rob Colorado Marijuana Dispensary with Bear Mace!

The unintended consequences of the relaxing of state marijuana laws here in Colorado.

“Peaceful” Potheads Rob Colorado Marijuana Dispensary with Bear Mace!: ”



Weeks after Colorado shocked the world and legalized marijuana for recreational use, 2 potheads cleaned out a dispensary by spraying the employees with bear mace! I thought the point of legalizing pot was that it would stop crime, not make it easier for potheads to find victims?

From the Daily Camera [emphasis added]:

Police are investigating a robbery of a medical marijuana dispensary in downtown Boulder on Thursday night, when officials say two suspects sprayed bear repellent at four people, sending one to the hospital.

The incident occurred at 6:50 p.m., according to Boulder police Sgt. Doyle Thomas.

According to initial eyewitness reports, two men wearing black clothing and ski masks entered the Dandelion Dispensary, 845 Walnut St., near the St. Julien Hotel & Spa, and began spraying what is believed to be bear repellent in the air.

Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel said surveillance footage from inside the dispensary showed just one suspect, and police are working to determine if another person was involved.

Thomas said the four employees inside began to flee the building even before the bear spray was released into the air but were still affected by it as they tried to leave.

One person was transported to an area hospital to be treated for symptoms related to exposure to the spray, he said. The other three victims were treated at the scene.

An Interesting Couple of Days.

An interesting couple of days for me to start the new year. New Years day was sort of uneventful save the lovely and talented lady of the house, having some shortness of breath.

Wednesday morning she woke up again having an issue breathing so time to make an appointment with the Doctor. Shortly after being seen by the Doctor, she was shipped off to the emergency room.
Exempla Emergency Room

After a plethora of tests and overnight on telemetry the hospital released her to follow up with a cardiologist. All the tests showed no problems and yet she continues to have arrhythmia issues.

Welcome to 2013 again raised its interesting head with the failure of our modem. We have DSL service. with CenturyLink. Our previous modem, was an ActionTec M1000 and we’d had it four years. Having suddenly failed I needed a replacement. The new device is a NETGEAR ADSL2+.

So far things are working fine in spite of the five hours it took to get the failed modem diagnosed and the new modem installed. I seem to remember that this is now 2013 and technology companies are still not grasping the concept of plug and play.

West Rail Line sees glitches on first test run.

West Rail Line sees glitches on first test run. For those familiar with the Denver Metro area, this is the new line of the existing Denver RTD Light Rail.

Since arriving in Colorado in 2001 we’ve seen the RTD Light Rail expand by three lines of service. Those three lines, Route 101/Light Rail: Lines E/F/Hrun south as far as Lone Tree, Colorado, and the H Line runs south and then east along a portion of Interstate 225.

The new line is the W: Union Station to JeffCo/Golden. The new W line will offer quick and reliable light rail service from Denver Union Station to the Jefferson County Government Center, making frequent stops through Denver parks, residential areas along 13th Avenue in Lakewood, at the Federal Center, along 6th Avenue, and ending at Jefferson County Government Center.

The W line will connect with the existing C and E lines at Auraria West Station, providing you with additional service to Downtown Denver, Lodo, Englewood, Littleton, Aurora, Greenwood Village, Centennial and Lone Tree.There is even talk of the line opening well ahead of schedule.

While there are many detractors of the RTD Light Rail, I’ve found it to be comfortable and efficient in those times I’ve made use of the service.


West Rail Line sees glitches on first test run: “The West Rail Line connecting Denver and Jefferson County is set to open eight months ahead of schedule, but electrical glitches delayed that momentum Thursday, causing the first full test run to start 80 minutes late.”

Apartments and their Pet Policy.

We’re looking find a new apartment, and of course we first check on the apartment pet policy. We’ve had cats for eight plus years now and so, yes, they’re a part of the family.

We’re also at that age where the option of a “Senior” Apartment complex is a viable option. We like where we live and so I got to looking into local senior friendly apartment complexes in our area. One recent new property in our town are the, “Wheat Ridge Town Center Apartments.”

These are recently opened and already have a waiting list. The property looks nice and from my visit to the outside of the property and looking on line the facility would fit our needs. Thus I wanted to check out their pet policy.

From their web site I find the following:


Wheat Ridge is also a fan of pointy ears and whiskers. We ask only a few slight tasks of your feline friend to ensure the comfort of present and future residents.
Litter Trained
Current Immunizations

What made us take notice is the property requirement that our cats be “Declawed.” A quick look at both The Humane Society of the United States, and ASPCA, finds that both organizations are against such actions. Our vet’s have also let us know of the problems of declawing cats as well.

Given that Wheat Ridge Town Center Apartments has put forth such a harsh, pet requirement, we’ve crossed them off our potential list.

If you have pets and are apartment dwellers, please ensure you check out any potential residential pet policies.

What Passes for News.

What passes for news these days more often than not amazes me. I know I shouldn’t be so surprised at this fact, and yet I still am. Having graduated from Journalism School nearly 30 years ago, the

basics remain with me.

The local, now only daily local newspaper here in Denver, the Denver Post is our object in question. They have a story about illegal immigration and our current Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO). The other player in the story is former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo.

Bennet has introduced an Immigration Compact signed by, “more than 400 Coloradians.” Now in a state with a population of 5,116,796, does this indicate a mandate or groundswell? The article by the Post goes on to fail to cite or link to either Bennet’s or Tancredo’s missives.

What the article does highlight is the infighting between the Bennet and Tancredo camps over this important state issue. So apparently infighting between a current and former congressional representative is more important than addressing the ongoing issue of illegal immigrants and immigration here in Colorado.


Colorado’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) grew 34 percent (127,000) from 2000 to 2010. Nationally the immigrant population grew 28 percent over the same period.
Of Colorado immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18), 24 percent live in poverty compared to 11 percent of natives and their children.

Of households headed by immigrants in Colorado, 37 percent used at least one major welfare program, primarily food assistance and Medicaid, compared to 16 percent of native-headed households.

33 percent of Colorado immigrants are in the country illegally. Illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18) account for 4 percent of the state’s overall population, 11 percent those in poverty, 16 percent of the uninsured and 7 percent of the school age population.



We continue to have a illegal immigrant, immigration problem here in Colorado. Until our state representatives get a clear understanding of, “illegal immigrant,” we will continue to have an unresolved problem.
