Pumpkinpuddy's mom here.

Hi everyone. I wanted to tell you a little bit about where Pumpkin and I live.
We live in Colorado, just outside of Denver. We live on the plains area part of town. We can see forever from our back door. To the south we can see all the way to Pikes Peak, which is about 70 miles away. To the west we can see the Rocky Mountains. And right outside our back fence is an open space park. 10 minutes north is a state park and 10 minutes south is a nature reserve. There's lots of wildlife around, even though we're only 25 minutes from downtown Denver. We have coyotes, fox, prairie dogs, bunnies, and over 300 varieties of birds, including birds of prey. Of course, I don't let Pumpkin run loose. She could get eaten!

There's tons to do around here no matter what you like to do. There's every kind of outdoor activity you could imagine. There are museums, zoos, botanic gardens, and all kinds of cultural facilities. There's some of the best theater in the country, and a world class symphony orchestra. And I'm proud to say that I've been singing with the symphony chorus for 20 years.

The climate here is fantastic. Winter temps average 45 degrees (F) and it's dry, so 45 actually feels quite warm. Summer can be hot, but it always cools down at night so there's relief from the heat. The weather can change very quickly. One of the first things someone said to me when I first moved here was if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it will change. Just a couple weeks ago it was gorgeous in the morning, blizzarding overnight, and by afternoon the next day it was warm enough to be out in shorts shoveling the snow.

This morning we woke up to something we normally don't see - fog. Most days it's sunny. In fact, we get over 300 days of sunshine a year.

I tried to insert a bunch of pictures, but I'm finding it's really hard to get the pictures where I want them and to get the text to line up properly, so I'll put in a link to the pictures. If anyone can suggest a blog site that's easier to deal with, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to make the change before we get too many posts in.

I agree, sounds like a pretty nice place. We have fog quite often and sometimes in the winter we have frozen fog, now that's just plain weird! Howdy Pumpkinpuddy!

Great to see the photos!

Are you using Blogger in Draft? I find it fine for inserting photos, and there is a new template-builder you can try, if you want to change things. Definitely set up a test blog (just don't make it public) and fool around with format and features before deciding to move to move to something else (like Wordpress, whatever). Good luck!

Hi. Thank you for sharing your comments about your home. It's nice in there and your photos are beautiful.
For the pics I recommend you to center them, you can choose it before uploading them. Then you can move each one to the place between the lines you want. If you want to upload many of them, you can make an album in picasa and put the link, just like you did. Besides Wordpress, there's Tumblr (, it seems easy, but I haven't done anything in it.
