This event for The Blue Bench kicks off SAAM – Sexual Assault and Awareness Month.

An email invitation is attached as reference and to pass along to your friends. Register now!

So International Women's Day came and went and I didn't acknowledge it. Apparently, I'm not the hard-fast feminist that I thought I was...ha. I finally get a day, um, I think.?. It was March 8th. Had there been fireworks and a huge-ass party, I would have noticed. Did you miss it also?
Since I have no kids, I'm not a sweetest, a boss, a flag, an admin assistant, have no Valentine, etc there are really no other dates that more directly apply to me. So Happy Belated International Women's Day!
A token of my late celebration includes one of my favorite quotes (brought to my attention by an amazing female friend):
"Precious jewel, you glow, you shine, reflecting all the good things in the world." ~Maya Angelou
Don't ever let your brilliance wane. Don't ever stand in the shadow of another. Shine on girlfriends!

The Denver Post printed an article yesterday that compared Denver to a city famous for outlandish home prices and cost of living. "Denver matches San Francisco for highest inflation rate in 2014...What Denver shared with San Francisco was a shortage of housing that drove up rents and home prices. Houston and Denver, to a lesser degree, benefited from the domestic oil boom last year." According to article author, Aldo Svaldo.
How does this translate in lay terms? Invest in Denver now, but then compete with dozens of others trying to do the same thing at the same time. Denver is in high demand. The metro area has grown by 10,000+ people over the past year.
"Denver-Boulder-Greeley area rents showed a 5.9 percent increase in the second half of the year, while a comparable measure for homeowner costs rose 5.1 percent." Ugh! Read the entire article for more info...
Today at the Economic Development Council meeting held by the Downtown Denver Partnership, I learned that Uni Qlo and Zara are considering Denver as an emerging market, possibly moving here by end of 2015. This means that Denver is making an appearance in affordable fashion-ware, which makes me and many of my friends even more excited about living in a terrific city. Whoohoo! Only problem is, a best kept secret is spreading...
On what? All three sectors of construction -- commercial, public and residential -- had increased spending in December as total construction spending ended 2014 at the highest level since the Great Recession, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released this week.
