Chocolate Easter Eggs an Enstrom Candies Tradition For more than 25 years Enstrom's has been creating hand decorated chocolate Easter eggs. Each spring several ladies pipe tubes of pastel icing onto 3,000 chocolate Easter eggs.  The eggs are created in small, medium and large sizes, in either light or dark chocolate. The large eggs are called "Milk Chocolate Surprise Egg" as the inside is filled with candy.   The eggs come in a variety of fillings such as: peanut butter, coconut, Swiss cream, pecan nut and more.  After the eggs are decorated they are shipped to Enstrom's retail locations in Fruita, Arvada and Denver.  I purchased our chocolate eggs in the Grand Junction store and they personalized them with our names.

Opening Day for Powderhorn Mountain Resort is Just Around the Corner. The resort is planning to open on Thursday, December 13th, 2012 for the upcoming ski season. Powderhorn Mountain Resort is Colorado's Western Most Ski Resort. The resort gets about 250 inches of perfect powder a season, and if that isn't enough to get you here, the views will. The ski area is nestled on the north side of Grand Mesa...the world's largest flattop mountain. From here you can see the valley below and the cliffs and mesas to the north. It's a view I could enjoy all day. Powderhorn Mountain Resort boasts no lift lines, but shh...that's suppose to be a local secret. The resort has over 1600 acres of ski able terrain and and a 1600 foot vertical drop. The glade skiing is fantastic and there is always a secret...

You have all seen them, pictures of Realtors that look the same age as their children. These pictures indicate the need for a reality check. I remember meeting a Realtor whose face and picture did not match at a listing. She was unrecognizable! She was at least 20 years older than her picture. She looked fine in the flesh. In our negotiations I realized that she was stuck in the era of her picture. She presented me in person with five copies of her buyers contract, and 5 copies of all the disclosures. It was nearly a half a ream of paper. She could not fax, scan or email.There is a connection between technology and old pictures I have found. Some do not have cell phones. In a way I admire their refusal to get with the times. Cell phones can be a pain but they are the lifeline  to freedo...
