I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July! Here at 7500′ in Monument, Colorado we were watching the fireworks last evening with sweaters on. Some evenings are chillier than others at this elevation and last night was a cool one.
June is turning out to be a Southern month for me. Last week I was kindly asked to present in Charleston, SC and I was also kindly asked to present yesterday at a Financial Advisor conference in Biloxi, MS.
So after nine months, Sunday was the last day of Colorado’s 2016/2017 ski season with the closing of Arapahoe Basin. So of course, my buddy Steve and I went skiing. Yes, we ski bums were still skiing on June 11th.
Even though school’s out for the Summer, Tristan left a week ago with a few of his classmates for nine days to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. We’ve been texting back and forth with him and he’s having a ball swimming with the largest turtles on Earth and doing lots of other
While most of the country has long since forgotten about Winter and are enjoying Spring and looking forward to the start of Summer in less than a month, some of us here in Colorado are still skiing. Arapahoe Basin has extended their season closing date from 6/4/17 to 6/11/17
Last week while in Atlanta, where I had been kindly asked to deliver a speaking engagement, I had a three and a half hour breakfast with my 82 year old Aunt Marie. Very cool lady who doesn’t seem a day over 60. We ate at The Dwarf House which is the original diner which Truett
As this week’s newsletter is hitting your inbox I’m at 30,000′ on my way to Atlanta where I’ve been kindly asked to deliver a presentation at a Financial Advisor conference. More than likely I’m reading an old-school paper book, not a Kindle or a Nook, and I’m probably wearing my
So, last Friday afternoon Beautiful and Tristan took off for Hutchinson, Kansas. After a seven and a half hour drive, they got there late Friday evening. And Saturday morning they picked up Château Knebl’s newest addition. We miss Captain Jack Sinatra Knebl. He was a loving member
Can you believe we’re over a quarter of the way through 2017 already?! Jeez Louise, where does the time go? When we are young we’re told that time will go by faster as we get older. I can’t imagine time going by any faster than it does now. Yikes – I must be ancient.
It’s starting to really feel like Spring here in Colorado. The days are pretty much in the 60’s and 70’s consistently now. This past weekend I put out my hummingbird feeders on our deck as folks as close as Colorado Springs, about 15 miles down the road, have sighted some of my little
I apologize that I haven’t sent out a newsletter since October 2016. I’ve been in the Witness Relocation Program. Lots of changes here at Château Knebl, and all for the good. I didn’t get a newsletter out back in October 2016 for a week, then two weeks, then three weeks
This evening I get to do something which I only do about once each year. I’m delivering a local, public “High Tech + High Touch = Much Higher Success: Social Selling & Relationship Marketing for Huge Sales and Business Success Boot Camp!” in Colorado Springs.
I hope you’re having a nice Fall. Here in Colorado we don’t have the oranges, reds, and purples in the Fall leaves like they do on the East Coast but we do have amazing, almost neon yellow in our Aspens.
Okay, let’s start with the bad news. The Rockies ended their season a few days ago and the Mets were tied 0-0 with the Giants in the Wild Card Game last evening until the ninth inning when the Giants scored three runs and took the game. See you next year, Rockies and Mets.
While I love Yes, Rush, Genesis, Foo Fighters, Thelonious Monk, Leo Sayer, The Bay City Rollers, Moog Cookbook, Pat Metheny, The Soggy Bottom Boys, and lots of other musicians and I’m blessed to attend a lot of concerts, there’s always been a special place in my heart for opera and I’ve been a raving opera fan for decades. I’ve listened to Donizetti’s “Roberto Devereux” twice today between coaching clients.
It appears that it’s that time of year again when my little friends fly South for the Winter. I haven’t had any of my friends visit any of my feeders on our deck or the feeder attached to one of my office windows in about three days. I normally spend time with them every day.
I hope you had a great Labor Day holiday and that you’ve had a fun Summer. In August I took a week off from writing my newsletter and then that week stretched into two weeks, and then three weeks and then before I knew it we were into September. So now that Summer’s pretty much over it’s time to get back into the routine of writing my newsletter on a consistent basis. Many kind folks emailed me saying that they’ve missed my newsletter over the last few weeks. Thanks for your kindness.
Are you enjoying the Olympics as much as we are here at Château Knebl? We always get into the the Summer and the Winter Olympics. And we’re fortunate to have the USA Olympic Training Center just down the road in Colorado Springs.
It’s starting to get cooler in the evenings here at 7500′ in Monument, Colorado. And the sun’s starting to set sooner also. The kids are going back to school next week. Where did the Summer go? I was born and raised in NJ where it’s illegal to go back to school before Labor Day. They’re a little different here in Colorado.
