Autmn In The Mountains:
Today we're gonna take ya fer a ride to Bear and Blue Lake, near Cucharas, Colorado. The drive, down The Highway of Legends, is beautiful and scenic, especially when the mountains are brushed with a tinge of Autumn. You can see the San Juan Mountain Range and in the valley below lies a small community.
Leaving The Hwy. of Legends, we travel up the winding dirt road to Blue Lake. As we continue the climb, below we see Blue Lake, nestled in the pines. We manuever many switchbacks, as we make our way up the mountain. Before approaching the top, we can view the majestic mountains and wistful valley below.
From left to right: Bobby, Jonathan and Stan, posing near the stream that supplies Bear Lake, and Blue lake, and in between, many beaver ponds. We rest beside a small stream with a waterfall. We finally approach the crystal clear waters of Bear lake. Look closely and you can see the bottom of the lake! We hiked in the forrest along side the lake towards the dam, the air being crisp and cool. We could see the lake through the trees as we neared the dam. Downstream from the small dam, Bobby crosses the rocky stream, as we venture further on towards a large beaver pond.
We now make our way back through the woods towards the main lake, Bobby leading the way! Again, as we come back to Bear Lake, everyone wants to see who can skip stones the farthest. Jon wins!!
As we wind up our adventure, Stan found a bunch of chipmunks dashing around. Bobby love those critters! Caught a cute chipmunk posing on a log.
That brought an end to our adventure for the day.....the crew was pretty hungry by now! We continued on for a hearty meal about 40 miles west, at The Iron Horse Inn, Walsenburg, Colorado. Well, I'm stuffed~see ya next time for more fun~peace and serenity!

Talk About Dumb.... Arizona:
A company called "Guns For Hire" stages gunfights for Western movies and other events. One day, a middle-aged woman called to inquire if they could kill her husband. She was sentenced to four and a half years.

Ridin' the Rails: The Alaska Railroad
Passenger Services & Tours:
Welcome to the Alaska Railroad, the last full-service railroad in the United States. We owe our success of the past 77 years to the hard work and dedication of our employees and the loyalty of our customers.

From the tidewater at Whittier and the Seward to the heart of the Interior Alaska , our route covers more than 500 miles. Our summer services offers three daily routes. The Denali Star departs daily from Anchorage and Fairbanks with stops at Talkeetna and Denali. The Coastal Classic serves Anchorage and Seward, with magnificent walls of ice, jagged peaks and gorges along this route. The Glacier Discovery connects Anchorage and Whittier, winding along the scenic Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. In addition to our daily service routes, The Hurricane Turn offers a unique "flag" service between Talkeetna and Hurricane Gulch, providing a vital transportation link for rural Alaskans.

Happy Railroadin' Partners.....have fun and enjoy!!! No better way to enjoy wildlife....nature....and just down right relaxin'!

There are 3 tried and tested ways to make sure your wilderness water is safely disinfected: Boiling, Halogenation, and Filtration. You should pick the one that best suits your needs and is appropriate to your activity.

This Week: Boiling:
The rule is very simple:
Once the water is hot enough to produce one rolling bubble, it is free of organisms that will cause illness, worldwide and up to at 19,000 feet above sea level.
The Reason:
All of the time it takes to bring water to a boil, works toward the death of organisms in the water. By the time water reaches the boiling point, it's safe. Giardia lambli cysts, for instance, die at approximately 122°F(50°C). If you want to feel safer, let the water roll around at a boil for a couple of minutes. Boiling is cheap-the only cost is fuel-and effective, but it consumes time, and it's inconvenient if you run out of water on the trail.
Boiling will NOT neutralize chemical pollutants!
Next Issue: Halogenation - Don't miss it!
Until next time: Be Safe ~ Be Happy!!

This twisted site bills itself as "A Fun Site for Your Dark Side." So watch out: You might just enjoy seeing a few well-placed tread marks on the happy icons of American consumerist pop culture. Indeed, Army Tank seems obsessed with gratuitous stuffed animal violence. Furbies, Teletubbies, Pokemon, and Purple Dinosaurs all blown to bits for your guilty viewing pleasure. Even Hawaiian Barbie isn't safe. She was chopped in half by an axe. Take part in the devilish fun by suggesting a method of dispatching these critters. With a new execution scheduled for every week, you have plenty of opportunities for input. Each execution is chronicled with a script of imagined pre-death dialogs, graphic photos, and videos. A gallery of past victims preserves each beloved character, including the Pokemon Pikachu being ever-so-ironically electrocuted.

Taxes-Legal or Illegal:
Folks, we're looking into some real interesting data on the illegalities of taxes on wages, etc.. It's unfortunate, but a great deal of people in this country have been led to believe that what ever the government does is legal and for the good of all...WRONG! Next week we'll lead you to some information, that should make you start to think, you'll certainly start to wonder anyway! In the mean time, think about this scenario:
Early day protection money or they beat ya up/burn your business,etc, etc.! IRS gangsters: if ya don't pay your TAX protection money, you go to jail, lose your home, business, property and if they can get away with it..send in Janet Reno(Ruby Ridge, Waco)!

Don't Skip Meals During Pregnancy:
Don't skip meals while you're pregnant, especially on hectic days when you're burning extra calories. Be ready for emergencies and keep a stash of healthy convenient foods on hand. Fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, pint cartons of low-fat milk, whole-grain cereal (just pour some in a baggie and keep it in your car or at your desk for snacking), and instant oatmeal and soups are good items to keep on hand so you can eat even when you're short on time. Read about healthy fixes for junk food cravings so you don't cave into fatty or empty-calorie snacks. And though you shouldn't rely too heavily on prenatal vitamins to meet your daily nutrient requirements (or treat them as a stand-in for a meal), vitamins are good insurance for when you just can't manage a balanced meal.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

High altitudes may irritate your baby:
Once your baby is 3 months old, his lungs are developed enough that he has the same chances of suffering from altitude sickness that you do, as long as he's otherwise healthy. About 25 percent of people get sick at high altitudes -- more than a few thousand feet above sea level -- and it's hard to predict who'll be affected and who won't. Also remember that some cities, such as Denver (which is more than 5,000 feet above sea level), are high enough to cause altitude symptoms. The best thing to do is to take your baby to see his pediatrician before you travel to high elevations to make sure he's in good health. For long trips to high locations, increase your altitude gradually over a few days if possible.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!

3D adventure game where you wander around your inherited House and find that it's haunted. The object of this game is to find 9 pumpkins around the haunted house looking in the basement in the attic and various places all over the house. The graphics in this game are amazing and a good thing about it is you don't need a 3D videocard. This isn't a violent game - just a little spooky.

"Sinfully rich."-But oh, it's so good--you may find that instead of serving 8 people, this pie serves only 4 (or maybe 2). That's why this recipe makes two pies. Sounds like a great way to watch football!!!!
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c black walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 unbaked pie shells
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add flour; mix well. Add bourbon, then eggs; beat until fluffy. Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.

Pour into pie shells. Bake 25 minutes; do not overcook.

So until next time, REMEMBER:  First, God created man. Then he had a better idea....
