Colorado State Capitol

You've seen capitol buildings before, this time we're visiting Denver, capital city of Colorado. Not too big, nor too small, the architecture is familiar, yet it has a western flavor. Stay tuned for more.

Cooling Opportunity

The University of Cincinnati is located in a section of the city known as "Uptown" which, after a bit of walking around, must have merely described the elevation of the area as opposed to a particular social status.

I had taken a long walk around the campus and its neighborhoods on the way to dinner and back, and I arrived back at this water display in front of the hotel to see two girls frolicking in the water display. I knew that there were no other adequate facilities in the area, so I certainly wasn't going to be the one to discourage them.

Besides, I had a half a mind to join them.

Will Somebody Please Turn Off The Faucet?

Got this off the camera and I said, "Crap, fuzzy." But then, this has been the mood all week around these parts.

Every year around this time, my company holds an event attended by about 375 of our client representatives. And it rained. Every day. Good thing they don't do the golf outing anymore.

Old World 3rd Street and Kilbourn Avenue, Milwaukee.

Funny how I seem to have this pattern of publishing consecutive posts of a similar subject, but I promise it's random.
