Historic Homes of Denver: Wine & Food Series - Apothic White - 08/15/12 09:10 PM
Some of you may remember my recent blog on the Apothic Red Wine. That was the lovely red blend recommended to me by my good friend Jeffrey DiMuria, who you may remember, sells fabulous beachside homes in Brevard County, FL.I liked the Apothic Red enough, that when I was in Argonauts recently to pick some up, I glanced over and noticed a bottle of the Apothic White sitting right there, ON SALE for $8.99! Well of course I had to pick up a bottle or two! I am primarily a red wine lady, but I do have friends that prefer white. (6 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: Entertainment Series - Titanic Dinner - 08/14/12 05:41 PM
Historic Denver is always coming up with some fabulous ways to learn about Denver's Historic Past. This coming Friday, August 17th at 6:00pm at the Historic Molly Brown House, Historic Denver will be hosting a "Titanic Steerage Class Shindig". Courtesy of the Hollywood movies, most of us are well aware of what the first class cabins on the Titanic were like. This dinner will feature Saloon dining, pints of beer and a band for entertainment. My own maternal grandfather was born in 1892 in Macedonia, and he and his brother originally had tickets for the Titanic but missed the ship due (4 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: The Mars Rover Landing - 08/13/12 12:58 PM
Now don't get me wrong. I love science. I am always the first one to get excited when there is a break in medical cures for things like cancer (several relatives, including my father have died from cancer). But I really have to wonder about the Mars Rover Landing. Sure I get that it is a great achievement for us "Earthlings". I understand that mankind will garner tremendous information that kids (and adults) are craving for. But, the Mars Rover landing cost in the neighborhood of $2.6 BILLION dollars to fund. That's BILLION with a "B". OK, we have a national (3 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: Weekly Market Update for 8/13/12 - 08/13/12 12:20 PM
Mortgage Rates are holding up this week with very little movement. The PPI index will come out tomorrow. The PPI or Producer Price Index focuses on the increase of the price of "intermediate goods". That is, goods that are used by companies to produce a finished product. Real Estate sales will also be released on Tuesday. Housing Starts will come out on Thursday. The Consumer Price Index or CPI, is a closely watched inflation report. That will be out on Wednesday.
Historic Homes of Denver: Entertainment Series - Chick Fil A Renewed - 08/11/12 02:37 PM
I have been quite astounded by the amount of press that Chick Fil A top dog Dan Cathy has gotten concerning his recent statement concerning marriage...gay or otherwise. I think that I most like the blogs and statements from gay individuals who said that they eat at Chick Fil A because they like the food and they support Mr. Cathy's right to free speech. That is truly awesome if you ask me. HOWEVER, by far the one thing that has tickeled my funny bone the most is this video from comedian Tim Hawkins. This really is priceless...ENJOY! <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/jWFjoC_luno" (3 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: Tips at Altitude - The Denver County Fair - 08/09/12 05:11 PM
This weekend Denver residents can look forward to the 2nd annual Denver County Fair this weekend. From August 10-12th at the National Western Complex, the Denver County Fair will be alive with a carnival, events, demonstrations, exhibitors, vendors, competitions, entertainment and more! Land for a Denver Fair (at what now is present day City Park) was purchased way back in the 1800's, but the civil war interrupted those plans, and the fair never came to fruition. But like they say, better late then never! There will be 14 interlocking indoor pavilions (great for the hot weather we've been having lately) that (3 comments)
A cool-off of any kind would be a nice break for the Front Range, and it looks like one may be arriving this week. Last night we had some much appreciated rain, albeit slight.
Typically during the month of July, Denver's temperature averages 74.2 degrees. As of July 23, 2012, the average monthly temperature for this year (0 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: Wine & Food Series - Apothic Red - 08/07/12 03:17 PM
Hello my Activerain wine peeps! Today's wine choice comes from my good friend Jeff DiMuria who sells homes on the lovely Brevard coast of Florida. Jeff recently told me about Apothic Red Wine. The name Apothic Red is inspired by the "Apotheca," a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe. Kind of sounds like Apothecary doesn't it? Apothic is a delicious blend of zinfandel (my fav), syrah, and merlot. The one thing that really surprised me about Apothic Red is that it comes from Gallo wines... yes...THAT Gallo wines. To be perfectly honest with you, normally (6 comments)
Historic Homes of Denver: Updates on Denver Home Prices - 08/06/12 02:55 PM
Denver Homes: Prices Rise for 5th Straight Month Some more great news for Denver home owners came out recently in the Denver Business Journal. According to the latest report from S&P/Case-Schiller, the City and County of Denver posted the 5th straight month of year over year increased home prices. This is keeping in line with what we've been seeing for the past 6 months and is what was predicted to happen due in large part on the low home inventory we have been seeing. This report details only Single Family Denver homes and does not include Denver condos. It also does (0 comments)

Historic Homes of Denver: Updates in the Mile High City - Record July - 08/01/12 10:33 AM
Well it's official, last month, July of 2012, was the hottest recorded July on record. In fact, it was the hottest month EVER recorded in Denver. Yes we had some rain...but in many people's (and garden's) opinion, it just wasn't enough! Previous to this year, the hottest recorded July on record was from 1934 when the average temperature was 77.8 degrees. Yes, I know that doesn't sound so bad, but remember that this number is an AVERAGE temperature which averages in the night temps too. Night temperatures in Denver routinely drop into the 60's. We came close again in July of (1 comments)
