kids in boulder co

It’s not that I didn’t have a great childhood. I didn't walk uphill both ways to school or anything. I had a pretty typical east coast upbringing.  Kids these days do have a lot on their plates, but for crying out loud, it’s good to be a kid in Boulder CO.

Maker Boulder just held their Mini Maker Faire event this weekend and they knocked it out of the park. Mackintosh Academy sponsored a booth were kids used drills, 2x4s and other material to make their own catapults. Google showed off the latest in 3D printing. There were drones, LEGOS, rockets and so much more. When I was a kid we had LEGOs and rockets, but a 3D printer was called a replicator and was only on Star Trek.

Cyndy Hinkelman

Exactly one year ago today I had total hip replacement surgery on my right hip. After years of being in pain, pretty darn debilitating pain, and limited ability to do the things I love to do - skiing, hiking, biking, yoga, dancing (oh yeah!), camping/rafting and even walking, & after much pondering (procrastination?), I finally decided it was time. Time to fix my worn out hip that was bone-on-bone and had no more cushy ligaments or cartilage left, the result of 15 years of teaching high-impact aerobics (many using heavy hands) and years of power-hiking up and running down the vertically challenging Boulder trails like Mt. Sanitas and Royal Arch.Cyndy Hinkelman

On January 29, 2014 I was anxiously ready for the installation of my new hip. I arrived at the hospital,

It’s that time of year again…taxes. Before filing there are some important questions you should ask, especially if one of your goals is to buy a home in 2015.

1) Do you max out your deductions to pay as little out of pocket as possible?

2) Are you considering buying a home in 2015?

3) Do you need a loan to purchase the home? 

If you answered yes to these questions this information might surprise you. Act now, before filing, to arm yourself with the best balance of deductions to position yourself favorably.

Why Not Max Out Tax Deductions? 

Not many of us are excited about sending money to the IRS, so looking for every possible tax deduction is understandable. However, mortgage lenders look at NET Taxable Income, not GROSS income.

The decision to buy a home is part logic and part emotion. should should fit your financial and location needs, but it has to feel like home too.

Dear Outlaw,

What a peculiar name your original owners gave you. You have all the majesty your 100-pound Siberian Husky self commands, yet you are a love sponge whose bucket is never full, a living stuffed animal.

On the day we met, a dusty sky hung over the Rocky Mountains reminding my husband and I of the overwhelming grief we felt for our first Siberian who’d passed only a week earlier. As we entered the rescue yard, 20 Huskies bounded toward us while you quietly sidled up, sat down next to my feet and leaned into my legs as if to say,“I pick you.” 

rescue Siberian HuskyWe put you and your equally sized sister, who you would not leave without, into the back of our little Subaru and made the drive back to our condo in Boulder. (YES, condo!) You looked like a

Boulder loves dogs. The average stay for a dog at the Boulder Humane Society is seven days. Cats have a little harder time finding their adoptive families with average a stay of 13 days. Older animals and those with dark coats tend to stay a bit longer. Older animals however are often house trained, past the chewing phase and tend to have more gentle demeanors. There are many full-breed pets looking for a good home.

Meet Charlie. Charles would love to find a peaceful family environment where he can relax and unwind. Affectionate once he feels safe and secure, you'll be delighted when he chooses you! Drop by the Boulder Humane Society at 2323 55th Street, Boulder CO 80301 and take a chance on loving this sweet boy!
