1.3 billion people in India **  All Buddhism, all the time.  ** 


A coupla' weeks ago, Rob Allerheiligen (yes, I amaze myself at my amazing spelling prowess, too!) shared slides of his trip to India & Bhutan.
I managed to take a few good pictures as he displayed (and talked about) the places he's traveled to this year, and some of the amazing things he's seen.
See the guy in the picture to the right?  His FATHER holds the Guinness record for longest mustache, and HE hopes to surpass his father.  Of course, your recognize the Taj Mahal (below), and a great picture, I thought, of contrasting age and beauty (upper right).
Rob must've had 80 pictures, all excellent quality, with fascinating narration.  I hope YOU were there!

Wears his mustache curled up on his ears!

Local Golf Courses  *** NEW! ***




  Link to Casa Golf Tournament Major Donor Form




The D.A.T. golf tournament has been set for September 6th.  It will be held at Highland Meadows Golf Course, as it has been for the last 24 years.  Larry told us that there will be some "special surprise guests" playing . . . turns out it's only the governor and attorney general.   8 a.m. tee time 
D.A.T. II - 2007 (click on it for registration form)

Brad Burns bragged on last week being "45 years with his "Sweet Polly", and because she's a cancer survivor for 12 YEARS (!!), he added another $12 to go to our Sertoma Foundation

Ed Stoner bragged on "34 years of being happily married" to Phyllis".  (It was remarked (in jest, I'm sure) that he's actually been married for 41 years)

E. Scott bragged that it's been 76 YEARS since he was born in Timnath, CO!

Larry Glass last week bragged that his company has been working with the Boyd Corporation on the largest manufacturing building in the US ~ 32 acres under one roof.  The corporation signed a 6.5M contract to put 42 skylights on their building!  They also signed a 1.5M contract with the Seattle Seahawks to provide skylights for their indoor practice facility.  With typical understatement, Larry said "it was a real good week."

Jim Nutt bragged (a .75 brag!) that he and Bill Green drove by the house in Greeley a while back, and it still looks real nice.  While they were there, they decided to head on over to Bubbas for a little Bar-B-Q . . . . VERY LITTLE, as it turns out . . . since we left the construction of the house, Bubbas has gone out of business!

Larry Glass said he "flew all night from Anchorage by way of San Francisco".  He told us about a piece of property on Harmony road he's had partial ownership on for several years, and just before the meeting  he closed on it!

Ron Young bragged that Jim Bernecker was the first person he met when he moved to Ft. Collins 35 years ago.

Larry Scheinhost didn't have a brag about selling his house and buying another.

Did I tell you that our next President-Elect is Dan Kaup????  Attaboy, Dan!

Terry Danielson had two brags:, one concerning American Family Insurance (for which our astute Sgt. at Arms, Norm Rehme promptly assessed a fine) and a new camera that's been invented for in-car monitoring of young drivers.  The other concerned a brag on Jim Bernecker being a great member, and all of his contribution over the years!  He'll be greatly missed.

Larry Abrahamson told us that his "surprise guests" at his D.A.T. golf tourney will be The Governor (with three bodyguards) and also the state's Attorney General.  (Nobody too important!)  See the link above for entry information.  He said any excess monies will be donated to Partners.

Rob Allerheiligen had answers to asked questions from last week in regard to his slide show:  1632, 9,000 feet, 12,000 feet.  (you shoulda' been there!)

Bill Benton fined himself a buck because he didn't know the answer.  He polled the audience for the name of a comic in The Post about 50 years ago.  Turns out it was "Gordo", apparently.

Jim Bernecker had "an invitation" to all of us ~ He and Pegge are going to have "a late adventure in life", and are moving to the Kenai Peninsula (click on it) in Alaska at the end of the month.  He says if we ever would like to go salmon fishing in the King salmon fishing capital of the world, go visit him!  WOW!

There was a meeting of past SOYs Thursday night.  A SOY has been chosen.

John K handed out info on upcoming football games.  Beer will now be $5.50 for regular beer and $6.00 for premium.  He thought that should help tips.  He told us there are 4 TIPS training classes:: 

TIPS Training Classes at The Hughes Room in Hughes Stadium
August 18th
, 8 a.m. to Noon, Saturday
August 18th, 1 P.M. to 5 P.M., Saturday
August 21st, 6 P.M. to 10 P.M., Tuesday
August 22nd, 6 P.M. to 10 P.M., Wednesday

John tells us "Colorado law now recognizes that completion of TIPs training reduces liability exposure in our state.  The class now is four hours in length.  And, the training license lasts for three years.  So, those of us that participated when the beer sales came back still have one year left on our license.  Besides the TIPs training, we will be carrying the Sertoma International insurance policy which provides comprehensive coverage for our club members who are participating in this activity."

Did you know that the Installation Banquet will be $10 apiece?  Now you do.

Dick Acott bragged that he and Constance have been married 49 years on the 29th of June!  WOW!!

  • Frank Johnson told us about a former Sertoma member's involvement in a "David and Goliath" type federal case.  Seems patent-trademark attorney Luke Santangelo kicked some legal ass . . . .  Luke won a 19 separate count verdict for over 15 MILLION DOLLARS!  Click HERE for the story in the Denver Post.

PulletsEgg business

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs (for you city folks).

The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, and a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He would sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result...The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well. Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making: Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention?

(thanks, Bill!)

On the Course . . . .

It was a sunny morning, a little before 8:00am, on the first hole at Bluff Point Golf and Country Club and I was beginning my pre-shot routine, visualizing my upcoming shot, when a piercing voice came over the club house loudspeaker, "Would the gentleman on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee please!"

I could feel every eye on the course looking at me. I was still deep in my routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption.

Again the announcement, "Would the man on the woman's tee kindly back up to the men's tee."

I simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more, the Voice yelled,

"Would the man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee, please?!?!"

I finally stopped, turned, cupped my hands and shouted back... "Would the asshole with the microphone please keep quiet and let me play my second shot!??!"
