the buzz





Colorado became a state in 1876, one-hundred years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, thus earning it the nickname the Centennial State. The name Colorado comes from the Rio Colorado, which in Spanish means, “the red-colored river.” Colorado exists on the boundary between the Southwest, the Mountain States, and the Central Plains. It is the home of the Great Rocky Mountains, but Colorado also marks the spot where the magnificent peaks flatten out into the wide-open rangelands of the Great Plains. What was once bison country is now big beef country. Historically, the stews, roasts, and one-pot dishes that grew up on the plains of Colorado made use of wild game and freshwater fish, reflecting the diet of early prospectors, explorers, and Native Americans. Today, there is also a considerable and well-established organic food industry in Colorado; and on the Western Slope of the Rockies, an impressive wine industry has emerged.

About me:
I am just coming out of a 2-yr. flare up of an illness, so it is great to be able to exercise, eat good food and get out in the world again! I have two cats, the best husband in the world and a 24-yr. old daughter who has moved home to So. Calif. for a new job. My nest wasn't empty long. I have had an African/Britsh foreign student for two years who still stops in at Mum's hotel now and then. Toss in the Marine pilot boyfriend and friends and family as garnish and my plate is full.
