From My Window… Broncos not down yet; shop locally where you can

I imagine that there were quite a few Denver Broncos left stunned following the overtime mishap on Sunday night against the Patriots, not to mention the Broncos blowing a 24-point halftime lead. However, not all was lost as Denver is still in first place with the Kansas City Chiefs and far from out of the […]

From My Window: There seems to be something special about Thanksgiving

I like this time of year. Winter is rapidly approaching, sure, but so are the holidays — the social season. But I like this time of year mostly because Thanksgiving is just around the corner — a week from today.
