  • Let's Talk About...Graduations

    Elise S. Marylander|May 15, 2024

    Ok. It is graduation time of year again. Niwot High School, CU Boulder, various preschools and elementary schools are all celebrating the launch of a flock of graduates who have completed the requisite tasks to "level up." Let's talk about that for a moment. "Graduate" means to complete. Commencement means to begin or start anew. So, a graduation commencement ceremony marks both an ending and a beginning You "graduate" to the next level while at the same time "commence" something new. While you...

  • Courier Cookbook Chocolate Chip Cookies

    May 8, 2024

    Chocolate chip cookie recipes bring out some pretty strong feelings. People insist theirs are "the best." The most cited recipe, of course, is the "Nestlé Toll House cookie recipe" found on the back of bags of Nestlé chocolate chips. However, there are so many variations. Melted butter? Dark or light brown sugar? We have narrowed down some of the best for you to experiment with. Enjoy!

  • Let's Talk About...Coincidences

    Elise S. Marylander|May 1, 2024

    Ok. I believe that there are no such things as coincidences. Merriam-Webster defines coincidence as "the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection." However, the Oxford Dictionary of English's definition is "a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances that have no apparent causal connection with one another." Connection or no connection? I think there is usually a connection. Of course, some things happen "by accident" like dropping a...

  • Let's Talk About...The Power of the Wind

    Elise S. Marylander|Apr 17, 2024

    Ok. There is nothing like a long power outage to put things in perspective. Recently, in anticipation of what became nearly 100 mph wind gusts, Xcel shut down the power in many areas to avoid potential wildfires. The wind itself also took out other power lines resulting in over 150,000 customers without power for anywhere from a few hours to four days. I was one of them. Maybe you were too. We think we are ready for something like that, but are we really? Even with (very) little notice, there is...

  • Let's Talk About...Artificial Intelligence

    Elise S. Marylander|Apr 3, 2024

    Ok. How do we feel about artificial intelligence? First, the term "artificial intelligence" sounds like something from outer space to me. So, I approach the whole concept with some trepidation at the outset. Artificial intelligence, or "A.I.," has many common uses including self-driving vehicles, fraud detection by your bank and facial recognition. And don't forget that our friends, Alexa and Siri, are complete products of artificial intelligence. But, for now, let's talk about the kind of A.I....

  • Let's Talk About...The Hair Ordeal

    Elise S. Marylander|Mar 27, 2024

    Ok. For some reason, lately the subject of haircuts keeps coming up in conversation. Maybe because spring is springing, we all want to spruce up a bit. Often the topic revolves around the rising cost of getting shorn. Add color to the mix, and you can pay a lot more than an average car payment. People spend some big money on their hair. A woman's haircut used to be about $30. Now, it can be as high as $250. For just a cut. Add color and you might be in the $400+ range. Plus tip. Don't get me...

  • Courier Cookbook White Cake

    Mar 20, 2024

    A true white cake that is moist and fluffy is not an easy task. First, the color white is difficult to create given our penchant for butter, eggs and vanilla, all of which are yellow. That might be perfect for a yellow cake, but sometimes, only white will do. Also, white cakes tend to be dry and flat. Not ideal. Here are two tried-and-true recipes that will take the risk out of white cake. Fill and top your cake with your choice of fruit, vanilla buttercream frosting, whipped cream, chantilly...
