Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Sons of Ditches

Newborn fawn hidden by doe in ditch lateralBoulder's 150th birthday this year got me thinking: Is there anything in town that has actually been around that long?

Elizabeth Black, who is putting together "The Ditch Project" as part of Boulder's sesquicentennial celebration, confirmed my suspicion. Irrigation ditches are not only the oldest remaining human structures in the city of Boulder, but ditch companies are also the oldest continuously operating companies.
