There was a great turnout for the 3rd annual RE/MAX Alliance Recycle-a-thon yesterday! People throughout Boulder County brought in their old electronics and got their recycle on. We saw everything from old printers, laptops, desktops, ginormous old school TVs, phones, stereo equipment, a toaster oven and even some vintage computer parts from the early 1980's. 

This event provides a great opportunity to clean out your business, office, basement, or garage and get rid bulky, non-functioning, or outdated electronics. The actual drop-off is super easy and electronics are responsibly taken care of. Just drive up and a smiling team unloads your items and sorts them accordingly.

  

Genesis Electronics Recycling partnered the event and represented with a

Boulder County Fair and RodeoIf you have not been to the Boulder County Fair yet this year, you have no idea what you are missing! I took my son, and I have to say it was totally our first rodeo and we loved it! The little kid in me was right there with him cheering on the cowboys, riding nauseating rides, eating bacon flavored cotton candy, and just enjoying everything that is beautiful about living in Boulder County! The fair was super impressive, fun for all ages, and oh yeah, FREE!  Even still, be sure to bring some cash if you go, because most of the vendors do not take credit cards! You can get your rodeo tickets ahead of time online or buy them at the box office, either way I would plan to get there early so you can steakout good seats on the bleachers! You can always re-enter

Recent Boulder County real estate stats show the total number of single family home and attached home sales were up for July 2013 in comparison to the same time last year.  In addition, the absorption rate has seemed to steady out a bit which shows that homes below $700,000 are in the highest demand! Considering the absorption rate is nearly identical for homes priced between $400,001 and $700,000, this would indicate a broad spectrum people are willing to pay the going rate for Boulder County Real Estate, which is great news for homeowners!

Flagstaff Mountain Boulder ColoradoFlagstaff Mountain is a Boulder tradition, and for me it was one of the first places I visited upon landing in Colorado back in 2002. In fact, one of the big boulders on your way up Flagstaff Rd became my favorite study spot and where I did the majority of my homework for my first year of college here. Even in the fall and into early winter, I would go up there, pick a spot to camp out on, and just feel at peace. 

From taking in the stunning views of downtown Boulder, to enjoying the windy drive up to the nature center and amphitheater, Flagstaff Mountain offers tons of amazing sights, all of which are picture perfect! Not to mention it is one of the most popular places to take a date, host a wedding or event, and to experience high-class dining in

When thinking of "getting high" in Boulder, Colorado", Paragliding may not be the first thing to come to mind, but it should be. Boulder is very fortunate to have one of the top Paragliding instructors in the country, Granger Banks. You can visit Granger’s website at http://parasoftparagliding.com/. If you are interested in giving this exhilarating sport a try, there are several options for giving it a go.

The quickest way to introduce yourself to paragliding is to take a tandem flight where you are attached to the instructor and you fly together. Another option is to get your P1, a student pilot certification. When you get your P1 you spend a few days (20 hours+) learning and practicing ground handling, some classroom work, and finally you make

NCAR Boulder ColoradoI recently took an awesome hike around the NCAR Building, one that I have never done before in Boulder despite my 10 year residential status on the Front Range. I mean, I have of course heard about NCAR and had driven up there, but I never explored the grounds beyond the parking lot views that overlook South Boulder, and boy was I missing out! I was so impressed by everything I saw and enjoyed being out there with my dog so much, I just had to write about it!

I found it refreshing to be out there in the solitude, while not being more than about 8 minutes away from our RE/MAX Alliance of Boulder’s Baseline office. Talk about convenience! I supposes this why the NCAR trailheads, Table Mesa Drive and NCAR Rd are so popular among Boulder cyclists and

The Med Boulder ColoradoRecently my family went to lunch at the Mediterranean Restaurant in Boulder, or just “The Med” as locals call it, and had an outstanding time! Of course that was to be expected, because I always have a good time whenever I dine here! In fact, I would have to say The Med is my all time favorite restaurant in Boulder and the surrounding area. 

Although it had been a while since I was there last, everything was just as delicious as I remembered it being. What was once my hotspot for cocktails and tapas, was enjoyed this time around from a family friendly perspective that was affordable and quick! (My kid loved their made-to-order shrimp poppers and the play "pizza dough" they gave out!)

Even though I don't dine out as much as I used to, whenever I have
