This season's Main in Motion started last Thursday in downtown Montrose on a gloomy, rainy evening, but that didn't stop the intrepid, dedicated merchants on the historic Main Street of Montrose, Colorado.  If you're in this area, be sure to make a Thursday evening afer normal business hours part...

As is all too common, I let work and life's distractions pull me away from posting to this blog recently, for which I apologize, but I'm back with renewed commitment and enthusiasm.  Just to catch you up on what's been happening with me, in March, I made a very typical Coloradan escape during the...
