So what's up? Yes, Nederland, Colorado.

It looks like nothing much has changed since I left that place to the tender care of some lazy folks.
Meanwhile that thing in America is not over yet, but less than a month is left, so bear the silence on the subject with me. Otherwise - yes, it is America, to restart with some easy reading:

A man suspected of leaving a backpack bomb outside a police station in a small Colorado mountain town tried several times to remotely detonate the homemade device using a cellphone but failed, according to court documents released Monday. David Michael Ansberry, 64, of San Rafael, California, was arrested this weekend in Chicago after surveillance video captured him at the stores where he bought the cellphones that he expected to trigger the explosive in the town of Nederland, investigators said.
Why would a 64 years old citizen of sunny California try to blow up a police station in Colorado is beyond me, unless the following quote carries a clue:
He was easily recognizable because he is 3 feet 6 inches tall and 100 pounds and wore a ponytail, a ball cap and using crutches.
If I were 3 feet 6 inches tall needing crutches (not to mention the ponytail), I would carry a serious grudge against the world in general too, and town called Nederland (of all the possible names) would be as good a target for my ire as anything else. Although why not demolish something in California? Beats me.

Anyhow, we all should know more in a few days, and meanwhile a bit of news from the place:
