Bright Horizons Montessori On The Mall
Be straight -- this is not a Montessori school. They have some of the materials and know some of the concepts but it is in no way a real Montessori. That being said, my child did receive good care here (age 2-3) specifically from her teachers/aids. The teacher turnover is high which, sadly, is common in daycare. The administration does not communicate well with their parents or their teachers. I finally started contacting my teachers directly via text/email because nothing seemed to get passed through. There are much better (i.e., nonprofit) centers but it certainly is a safe environment for children. They're just not all they tell you that they are and you end up paying for a Montessori education that your child will not get. They are FOR PROFIT and don't ignore that fact. I didn't think it mattered to me but when the teachers are asking for classroom materials as their xmas gifts while you can simply add up how much the center is making (headcount x monthly fee) it's sad that a teacher there should ever have to use a holiday to request classroom materials. We moved to a non-profit Montessori school are in hind sight I realize just how un-Montessori this place was.

Star Kitchen
In my first meal at Star Kitchen, I was pleased to discover a menu full of many great choices and old favorites. The food was very good and so was the service on a busy Saturday night. I had planned on being a regular. However, I later found my bank account was charged a 26% tip, when I had left an 18% tip. I disputed the charge I did not sign for through my bank, and the bank – not the restaurant – refunded me the unauthorized tip. There was also a security issue: The restaurant allowed a man to distribute marketing flyers at its front door, and when I refused a flyer on the way into the restaurant, the man blocked me from getting to my car on the way out. He stood in front of my car door. I had to tell him several times to leave me alone to be able to drive away. This made me uncomfortable and was an unpleasant way to end my meal. I alerted the restaurant, but don’t know whether any action was taken to prevent this from happening to other customers.

Strange Grounds
Strange Grounds is a diamond in the rough. The atmosphere and staff welcome you like old friends and family in their home-away-from-home, and their eats and treats are surprisingly decadent being made from scratch with love. Morning hours vary (and the door says 10ish, which is fair) because their night life is thriving with live music and comedy. The best part? Live acoustic music happens all the time, and many local groups choose to grace their house with live music while they jam together. Frieda has managed to cultivate a wonderful place for creatives and intellectuals to gather and mingle like coffee shops of old, and I look forward to watching her place grow through the years while I and all the new friends I've made here enjoy her fantastic coffee, wonderful food, and beautiful music together.

Kidstown Drop-In Child Care
I have been taking my 2 sons to Kid's Town in Mayfair for 3 1/2 years now, my kids LOVE IT and so do I. It's convenient, the staff is wonderful, they know my children and I even when months have passed between our visits. It's consistently the same staff too which shows that the management/owner cares about finding and keeping good employees. The facilities are clean and safe but most importantly I know my children are well cared for which gives me peace of mind. Their rates are very reasonable and they're open until 9pm evenings during the week and later on Friday & Saturday nights!

Kidstown Drop-In Child Care
This is the second Kidstown location I've taken my daughter to. While it is convenient, the Denver Mayfair location lacks what the other one has to offer. They never check me and my husbands I.D. before releasing her. And frequently the kids are sat down in front of a movie with the employees sitting around doing nothing. The smoky hill location was always diligent to check I.d even though they knew me by name, and hardly ever put on a movies besides for the afternoon quiet time.

Where Dreams Begin Learning Center
My daughter loves Where Dreams Begin Learning Center! They just opened a month ago, and boy am I happy we found such a nurturing and affordable daycare. My little one gets so excited to see "her kids" every morning and really enjoys her frequent outings to the park. Ms. Chonta is great and provides lots of TLC and special attention to the kids. Any parents with children age 2.5yrs - 12yrs, in the downtown/Highlands area, should really check this place out

Henry's Tavern
We were staying downtown and looking for a place to eat and have some drinks. Per the ratings, we decided to give Henry's a try and were not disappointed! We were there on a Saturday evening, no reservations, and the place was busy. Got seated right away and the waitress took very good care of us. Made sure our drinks were full, checked on us regularly. The food was very good, large portions. Highly recommend!

Groundcovers Greenhouse & Nursery
Terrific attention & advice today! I called about the perennials we needed. Jeff checked & described the colors available over the phone. Later, a nice person up front directed us to the perennial section, where Janet assisted with color choices. Shelley efficiently checked out our order. Another terrific experience! Thank you!

Tips & Advices
A plant guarantee covers the buyer that if a plant doesn’t survive the guaranteed amount of time (usually one year, but sometimes up to 5), the plant will be replaced. This does not cover annuals, which have a life cycle of only 1 year.
How often to water a grass lawn depends on the climate, the type of soil that surrounds your property, and how deep the root system of your grass grows. A general rule for watering is: every day during summer in warm climates. This rule can be modified if lawns are older, or the climate cooler. For mature well-rooted lawns, deeper but less-frequent waterings are recommended as being healthier than daily 15-minute rinses.
Fruit trees should be watered different frequency of times depending when they were planted. Younger trees, up to the second growing season, should be watered twice a week. Make sure to give up to 1 full gallon of water weekly to newly planted trees during their growing season, and more when it’s gaining  eaves. Once the tree reaches mature fruit-bearing stage, waterings can be cut back, as the roots are sunk and can find ground water.
The question of when to plant fruit trees really depends on climate. The general rules are: You should not plant fruit trees when the ground is frozen, when the peak daytime temperature is more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit, or when the forecast shows extreme weather (i.e. a tornado warning). Aside from those rules, the suggested planting times are either fall (which most people recommend) or spring (for bare-root trees).
There are many kits sold on the market that measure soil pH levels. Dyes, test strips, and electronic pH meters are all formulated to assist the home gardener. Many people choose to simply shake up soil and distilled water, and then measure the pH with a hand-held meter However, some people consider this method not very useful, and suggest using a lab for greater accuracy.
