A Few of FR's Finest...Every Day...08-18-04...Colorado ~ "Nothing Without the Diety"
Mama_Bear

Posted on 08/18/2004 12:08:49 AM PDT by Mama_Bear



A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay, or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

~ Billie, Mama_bear, dutchess, Aquamarine,

Today we are visiting Colorado, the "Centennial State", and we salute the Fine FReepers who call Colorado home.









Called the Centennial State because it was admitted to the Union on Aug. 1, 1876, 100 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence.




Dinosaurs once roamed North America, and what is known today as Colorado was no exception. Evidence of fossils of oysters, shellfish and crustaceous fish have been located in southeastern Colorado; fossil insects, seeds, and leaves in perfect detail as well as petrified stumps of sequoias have been located near Florissant (Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument);

and of course perhaps Colorado’s most famous monument attesting to the presence of dinosaurs, is Dinosaur National Monument, located north of Grand Junction where a variety of dinosaur skeletons have been located and are on display.

The cliff dwellers, ancestors of the Pueblo Indians, were among the first civilized inhabitants of Colorado, and what remains of their culture can be seen at Mesa Verde National Park located in Montezuma County in the extreme southwestern section of Colorado.


They were called Anasazi, an Indian word for "Ancient Ones". What became of them remains a mystery, but the Anasazi disappeared from their cliff dwellings about the year 1300 A.D.




History of Colorado in Brief....


First visited by Spanish explorers in the 1500s, the territory was claimed for Spain by Juan deUlibarri in 1706. The U.S. obtained eastern Colorado as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the central portion in 1845 with the admission of Texas as a state, and the western part in 1848 as a result of the Mexican War.


IMPORTANT DATES IN COLORADO HISTORY

1803: The United States acquired most of eastern Colorado as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
1806: Zebulon M. Pike explored Colorado.
1848: Mexico ceded western Colorado to United States.
1858: Gold discovered in Denver.
1861: Congress established the Colorado territory.
1867: Denver chosen as permanent capital.
1870: Railroad connections established with the East.
1876: Colorado became the 38th state on August 1st.

Colorado Facts


Colorado has the highest mean elevation of any state, with more than 1,000 Rocky Mountain peaks over 10,000 ft high and 54 towering above 14,000 ft. Pikes Peak, the most famous of these mountains, was discovered by U.S. Army lieutenant Zebulon M. Pike in 1806.

Once primarily a mining and agricultural state, Colorado's economy is now driven by the service industries, including medical providers and other business and professional services. Colorado's economy also has a strong manufacturing base. The primary manufactures are food products, printing and publishing, machinery, and electrical instruments. The state is also a communications and transportation hub for the Rocky Mountain Region.

The farm industry, which is primarily concentrated in livestock, is also an important element of the state's economy. The primary crops in Colorado are corn, hay, and wheat.

Breathtaking scenery and world-class skiing make Colorado a prime tourist destination. The main tourist attractions in the state include Rocky Mountain National Park, Curecanti National Recreation Area, Mesa Verde National Park, the Great Sand Dunes and Dinosaur National Monuments, Colorado National Monument, and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument.

Meet The Tates

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." —1 Corinthians 12:21

Bible In One Year: Psalms 100-102; 1 Corinthians 1


Teamwork is essential in business and industry. To underscore this point, Co-op Magazine included this item: "You've heard of the corny Tate family. They pervade every organization. There is Dick Tate, who wants to run everything. Ro Tate tries to change everything. Agi Tate stirs up trouble whenever possible, and Irri Tate always lends him a hand.

"Whenever new ideas are suggested, Hesi Tate and Vegi Tate pour cold water on them. Imi Tate tries to mimic everyone, Devas Tate loves to be disruptive, and Poten Tate wants to be a big shot. But it's Facili Tate, Cogi Tate, and Medi Tate who always save the day and get everyone pulling together."

A one-man show doesn't get very far. But nowhere is this truth brought to a higher and more powerful fulfillment than in the body of Christ. The Scriptures teach that by God's design all who are in Christ have been made dependent on one another. We may think we can go it on our own, but we can't. We can't fulfill our high calling as members of the body of Christ until we begin to realize that we all have a vital part to play. We are family. We need one another.

Lord, help us to overcome our stubborn pride. Teach us to cooperate—for our sake and for Yours. —Mart De Haan

If great and small work side by side
When it comes time to lend a hand,
And if they turn their backs on pride,
Christ's servant-heart they'll understand. —Branon

Coming together is a start; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

FRIENDLY FREEPER PING! Your beautiful state is being featured at "A Few of FR's Finest".

Come by and say hello and tell us about your state and why you are proud to be a Coloradan. We also are saluting our Colorado FReepers today, many of whom have been working hard supporting our troops and our President and trying to turn back the tide of liberalism.

Unfortunately, the list of Colorado FReepers has disappeared from the state message board so I couldn't include everyone. Please bring along your friends and neighbors.

Hi Aqua. I've never been there either, except for a short layover at Denver airport, and that doesn't hardly count. LOL.

It looks like a beautiful state. So colorful!

I have long admired the dedication of the Colorado FReepers who have been rallying to support our troops in Fort Collins and other areas of the state. Unfortunately, after the last big FR crash, the list of freepers on the state message board pages has disappeared, so I can't ping them all. I hope they find us today.

You have a good day, Sis. :-)

That's okay, reading every other word works too. Hey, you found the pinto beans, so I know you at least 'skimmed' it.

Leave it to wolfie to find the food, which, BTW, GailA didn't bring any of today. No biscuits and gravy, no nuthin'.

Guess we'll have to survive on SMOOOOOCHES!

If you come for a visit, make sure to make it a trip in the late summer. Our Mountains and prairies are best enjoyed with the top down, cruising the highways, or better yet, on the back of a mountain bike.

Though I love to ski, I find most visitors enjoy the summer wild flowers in Grand Mesa the best.

BTW, aside from downtown Denver and the PRB (Peoples Republic of Boulder) people are sane and polite here (read: Conservative).

Good morning, Lori. What a beautiful job you did presenting the state of Colorado today. Counting those already presented, we are half-way through now! Each state has so many beautiful features - it's really nice to get to know more about each one.

I *have* been to Colorado - at least the southern part of it, and it was cool and green and beautiful in the summer, with the clearest streams - for trout fishing! I'm not a lover of fish, but we cooked it on the grill with lemon butter, and it was actually delicious!

Thanks for being such a great tour guide. :)

What a beautiful job you did presenting the state of Colorado today.

Thank you, Sistah. It sure is a pretty state. Looks like the only thing is doesn't have is ocean.

I've never been there, but my parents took a trip to Colorado. They stayed in Ouray. Said it was one of the prettiest places they have ever been.



Surrounded by peaks up to 5,000 feet higher than town, Ouray is also blessed with sulphur-free hot springs. One visit and you'll see why Ouray is often called "the Switzerland of America." Imagine relaxing in a flowing hot mineral spring, watching the sunset on the snow-covered peaks above. Ouray is blessed with many good hot springs bubbling to the surface in town. Several of these have been developed into excellent spas and health facilities.

Hi dutchess! We sure missed you! Glad to have you back where you belong.....although I know "back" means back to work. *sigh*

Sometimes it isn't worth leaving when you come home to a mountain of work. In a perfect world someone would have taken care of it while you were gone. LOL. And people shouldn't be allowed to make changes while you're gone either. It's very sneaky, IMO. :-(

Louie's servin' breakfast. What a guy!

We've been getting lots of pictures from Colorado lately. Our nephew is stationed at Ft. Carson.

The mention of Colorado, brings to mind the beautiful background scenery in "Paint Your Wagon."

Thanks for the travelogue, MB.

If you come for a visit, make sure to make it a trip in the late summer. Our Mountains and prairies are best enjoyed with the top down, cruising the highways, or better yet, on the back of a mountain bike.

Have heard that summer is the best time to see Colorado and we actually did try to go out there last August. I have a problem with dry eyes and it was very hot the whole trip so we had to travel with the A/C blower fans on full force. Turned around in Kansas City where it was 104, with the trip becoming too miserable to continue. Guess we should fly out there but I had always wanted to have that view of the Rockies from a distance where you're driving towards them.
Would spring or fall be a good time to go, I just can't travel in the hot summer anymore. I've heard that spring is the rainy season in CO.

Thanks for the travelogue, MB.

Thanks for travelin' along, DD. :-)

I don't remember seeing "Paint Your Wagon". I will put it on my "movies to rent" list. Sounds like a good rainy day movie.
