Happy New Year!

I’d like to wish everyone a very happy and successful 2007! I’m looking forward to it and spring into the year with loads of energy and enthusiasm. I will be compiling my year end statistics during the next week and will be posting those results.


Our area was “discovered” long ago and has been growing ever since. The allure of Boulder has been written about since the 70’s. Remember when Time magazine touted Boulder as the place where the “Hip meet to trip”? I can imagine that the Chamber of Commerce didn’t especially like that tag line. Well, the press has improved and here are the latest accolations from the media about Boulder. This list was taken straight from the Boulder Chamber of Commerce website http://www.BoulderColoradoUSA.com
