The ‘Wild Bangkok’ Thai restaurant here in downtown Denver is nicely decorated inside .. and they serve up frosty Singha beers in Singha mugs. I was on my own : a welcome moment of respite after a long day of talking to lots of people. I enjoy the cold beer while the summer is still lingering before its final goodbye. It was a day of sunshine here, welcome weather after the historic 100-year flood in the Boulder area that destroyed some 120 homes. The roads around Boulder are extensively damaged, so much so that people have to be airlifted out.
