Fran Shure: A Spiritual Issue Not To Be Silent About 9/11 | Print |  E-mail

by Susan Dugan

Right after 9/11, I remember talking to my women’s group and saying I just don’t think this could have happened without someone knowing about it and allowing it to,” says Fran Shure. “It was totally intuitive, because I knew nothing.

Clean Tools, Rescue Plants: Gather Quiet Like Wise Trees | Print |  E-mail

by Joan Hinkemeyer


January may seem like the depths of winter elsewhere, but we Colorado gardeners are already thinking of      the new planting season. Blame this on our bright sunny January days, steadily growing longer. After all, what green-thumber can resist the sun’s cheerful rays?
