"I think the thing I am most uncomfortable with is the thought that many of these jobs were held for the retiring person. The jobs were not open to competition after the retired person vacated the post (for the weekend). All very slimy if you ask me."
Hey, just saw that message you sent me in February now. Great Dane is a realtor, and he flips houses. Not sure if he's got a contracting license or if he farms his people out to do "other" types of remodel work. Might be worth calling him to find out. He's Dave Danemann. Not sure of his number.
Slamwagon, thanks for the recommendation to Casa Bonita! It sounds amazing--and a little nuts--so I'm sure it's a great time. I'm only in Denver until early evening, so I'll have to go for a less ambitious dinner, I think. However, I'll definitely check it out next time I venture north of our fair state! Gracias for the tip!
Hang on, am I submitting it to the website or are you? Anyway, that sounds lovely - just make sure to give credit to the Center for Southwest Research for all the photos; basically the little shpeal I put in at the end:

Thanks for relating your elementary school experiences. I think I visited Wherry once back in mid eighties. Compared to the goals they have there today, 20 years ago schools were very different. There were a whole lot of creative teachers out there! It is neat to hear how your experiences then made some impact. I know I still remember my teachers - though it was the mid and high school ones who made the most impact.
