Welcome to Spring Training!

Right now we're sitting in Hi Corbett Field in Tucson, AZ watching the Rockies and the Dodgers. It's 87 degrees here in Tucson. We've been here for 2 hours and I already have autographs from Clint Barmes, Dexter Fowler, Chris Ianetta, Troy Tulowitzki, and Manny Corpas! Go Rockies!

The End of an Era – Rocky Mountain News Closes Tomorrow

Thursday, February 26, 2009 1:39 PM

RockyMountainNews It is a very sad day in Denver.  The Rocky Mountain News is no more.  Two months from its 150th anniversary, the Rocky Mountain News will publish its final paper on Friday, February 27, 2009.  The Rocky was founded by William Byers in 1859, 17 years before Colorado would even become a state.  The Rocky has always been my favorite paper, both from a reporting standpoint and because I prefer its tabloid format.  It was also the first paper we subscribed to when we moved to Denver in 1991. 

Today is a very sad day.

Trek Madone 4.5

Tuesday, February 24, 2009 9:03 AM

Last night I got a 2008 Trek Madone 4.5 for my birthday from Wheat Ridge Cyclery.  I had been looking for a bike and Andrea decided to get me one for my birthday.  It's a full carbon frame and is a lot lighter and smoother than anything I've ever ridden before.  As I was looking this time, it took some time to get used to on all of the new bike technology since the last time I rode a bike.  I'm really looking forward to getting out and taking a ride this evening now that it's supposed to be almost 70 degrees here in Denver today.

Live.com Visits a Mine

Live.com Coal Mine - 20090215

Since I started working at the Mine Safety and Health Administration last May, I've noticed stuff like this.  Today, Microsoft's Live.com search portal had this really cool shot of workers in a coal mine.  It's interesting seeing this connection to my work featured in this way.  It's also worth noting that, despite the strides made by MSHA and the mining industry, it's still a very dangerous industry as there have already been four mining fatalities in the United States in 2009.
