The family farm invites you to be a farmer for a day; spend the day harvesting and learning about Colorado produce. Miller Farms has been in production since 1949 and they enjoy teaching folks of all ages about how produce is grown. And what an awesome deal – the admission fee included harvesting plus all activities at the farm including the cost of the produce. Spend the day at the farm (not far from Boulder/Lyons/Longmont), then go home to enjoy the taste of locally grown vegetables. Some activities besides harvesting include barrel train rides, huge corn maze, antique tractors, real monster truck, giant dirt hill, and hay pyramid.
Billy Banjo’s Bus Tours, of course! So, let me tell you what I partook in last evening. It all began in Boulder Colorado where a group of good friends decided to do a customized bus tour (with a cowgirl theme no less). Dressed to the nine;, we were decked out in boots, rodeo shirts, big-buckled belts, and cowgirl hats! Even Banjo Billy had on his chaps as he drove us downtown to Pearl Street and up to Chatauqua. Now, if you’ve never seen or heard of this bus, you have to have to realize that this is not your average tour bus. And if you’re a group of twenty five cowgirls, get ready to whoop, yeehaw, dance, and party your way around town. You’ve got to read more.

The Troia Team is supporting the newest initiative instigated by Oprah Winfreyherself. NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING! While it’s a nationwide promise, we are honoring it here in Boulder Colorado as real estate agents and concerned members of our city. It all began in a local community near our county, Fort Collins Colorado when earlier this year, Shelley and Daren Forney, lost their 9-year-old daughter. Erica, who was on her bicycle, just 15 pedals from her front door when she was hit and killed by a driver who was distracted by the cell phone. Erica’s death was senseless and stupid because it was caused by a phone call that just couldn’t wait. Just recently I was driving next to someone who had both hands on their phone and their elbows were on the steering wheel…….”steering”!!?!?!? I was scared to be on the road next to him. Read more about this important cause and help to prevent unnecessary deaths and accidents.
