    Okay, we’ll admit fine jewelry and casual skiwear isn’t a trend. But it could be. Don’t ‘ya think? The radiant colors of this season’s skiwear combined with all sorts of jewelry is quite a chic look and might just wake up the latent trendsetter in each of us.     So, why not just go […]

    Becoming Dorothy Hamill
    Brenda Himelfarb | Featured Stories , Features | December 8, 2017

    In the beginning, we were drawn to her eyes. Those bashful eyes, much like the pure, innocent look that we saw in the eyes of Diana, Princess of Wales, when she was first introduced to the world by Prince Charles. And like Diana became England’s revered princess, this fresh-faced young woman would become our pride […]

This is the question that I often ask myself when I’m sitting alone in some of our planet’s most remote winter environments getting ready to participate in an activity that, at one point, I could only dream about. My first thought is always, “WOW!” And then I ask myself, “How did this happen?” Soon I […]

Diamonds or pearls? Pearls or diamonds? What’s your pleasure? The brilliant opulence of a sparkling diamond versus the quiet perfect, shimmering luster of a pearl. There is so much to love with both of these gems. They spice up an outfit, give a little shazam to the ordinary day; they add bling, sparkle and a […]

Back in the day, talk of someone being a vegetarian conjured up visions of an emaciated, pale looking person who probably lived in or was from California, of course, and didn’t know anything about eating properly. We were all happily eating our deep fried chicken, country-fried steaks and ball-park hot dogs. Winds up that those hippies were right on. […]

During the peak of summer, Executive Chef David Gutowski and his staff clip fresh greens twice a week from Grouse Mountain Grill’s garden plot in the EagleVail Community Garden. They fill two huge garbage bags and return to the Beaver Creek restaurant to wash and spin the mix of organic lettuces. Just a few hours later, lucky diners taste the peak of summer on their […]

Several years ago, the makers of M&M’s added the color blue to its bag of candy – the result of a vote by M&M’s fans. However, the company soon found that the blue M&M’s were usually the last ones left in the bottom of the bag. It seems, of all the colors in the spectrum, […]

When you really think about it, good old fashioned camping is basically an outdoor version of housekeeping. As writer-humorist, Tim Dowling, puts it, “Camping is to living as cooking is to barbecuing. There is something satisfying about escaping from our reliance on infrastructure that turns the most tedious chore into an adventure. Suddenly making toast […]

It flits. It flutters. It fascinates us. And if one gets very close, it’s as though you’ve somehow been specially chosen to enjoy its dance. Then, in a blink of the eye it’s gone. And you’re left savoring the moment you’ve just experienced; a few seconds that will delight. It’s that extraordinary and, in its own way, feeds your soul. The flight of a hummingbird is mesmerizing. When they […]

Bob Lazier always loved cars. His first auto purchase at age 14 was an “ice car,” appropriately named since it could only be driven on frozen Lake Minnetonka during the winter months, but his parents helped him procure a four-year-old Jaguar in 1958. “I absolutely love cars, and I absolutely love driving cars, and I […]

In Medieval days, when kitchen hearths were placed in the center of the home, the inhabitants – even the livestock – huddled around during deepening winters for warmth and light while women cooked over open fires. Today’s kitchens have come full circle. Although cooks no longer slave over open flames in smoke-filled rooms, and the […]

Tucked between the mountains at the far side of Minturn, the first indication that Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy is unlike any school anywhere is that it is surrounded by miles and miles of Nordic ski trails. Then there is the massive, state-of-the-art fitness center next door to where Lindsey Vonn and other Olympians work […]
