My travels have noticeably increased over the last few weeks. Not special, the kind of travel that I call “mostly pedestrian business travel.” Last week, I was in Colorado for the first time in months, maybe years…it all blends together. My first stop was the House of Miles, but most of my week was spent in the Denver area experiencing one of the more unspectacular hotels I’ve sampled this year. But the hotel had one thing going for it – it’s “no smoking” signs had been updated to keep up with the times.


Color me old, conservative, out of touch, whatever – but I had truthfully forgotten about the whole other “MJ” thing out in Colorado until I read this. I got a good laugh out of this “no smoking” sign. As they say, travel broadens the mind…. in more ways than one, I guess.
