The broadcast launches September 3rd, but I’m sure Augie and dad will have plenty to share even before then!
Even better…have a boy in first and fifth grade or who is 7 to 10? Please contact them and see how your youngster can have a ton of fun will improving his skills and growing his character.
2015 had its ups and its downs…but, for us, one of its ups was this awesome town and its great people. If you are reading this and do not live in Strasburg, come by for a visit. Although there are probably a couple grumps within our population you could run into :-), it’s far more likely you’ll leave happier than you arrived.
And, if you are going to be in the area and want to say hi, please contact us.
Whether you live in Strasburg or not, may 2016 be your best year ever! It’ll be our first complete year here…and we are looking forward to it!
I am not sure those who haven’t been able to live in a place like Strasburg can understand just how blessed we small town folks are. Like the vast majority Americans, we have plenty to be thankful for, but we (in this tremendous community) additionally have great businesses, great schools, and great people…
We are thankful for Strasburg…and thankful for you regardless of where you live. Thanks for reading this blog or following us on social media. You make it all worthwhile. But, most of all…
I hope you folks will allow me a little shameless self promotion here. I am actually a Church of Christ pastor (inactive until I get a calling in the area or plant a church), and I recently started a program being broadcast on shortwave radio (called Traditores Higher Frequency). I produce the program right here in my home studio in Strasburg:
If you have any interest in things Christian or religious, will you check it out?
Thanks either way. 🙂

Now…if you can’t make it in person, you can still order online through Bear Scout Augie.
P.S. Thanks to all the business who have supported the Pack by allowing the to sell in front of their establishment. (The picture in this post is in front of Hank’s Hardware.)
Happy Friday everyone! I worked from home today…which means I started by dropping the munchkin off at school…worked a little…and then had lunch with the greatest company ever…
My beautiful wife Michelle!
I’m a big fan of the Strasburg Convenience Store‘s sandwiches (and it’s relatively close to where I live), so that’s where we buzzed over to…and guess what we saw?
Thanks to Gary, the store’s manager, for being willing to carry Strasburg Rocks! 15 oz. Mugs! (I should also mention that he is selling them at almost $3 less than they cost in our Zazzle store.) If they do well we may come up with some other merchandise to help us celebrate this great town we live in.Continue Reading
I just threw up a new web site that aggregates some of my other sites (including Strasburg Rocks! Check it out?:
Also, if you live in Strasburg (or one of the close towns), please friend me on Facebook. It is good to stay in touch with neighbors!
And…Matt Laughlin…you’ve won! We’ll be reaching out shortly to get your address and soon you’ll be drinking 15oz of your favorite drink from the best mug in Colorado! 🙂
Since this is all coming straight from my personal wallet it means we won’t be able to do tons of them, we will have more contests for free Strasburg Rocks! stuff…so if you didn’t get a chance to enter or didn’t win this time…don’t give up…you’ll get another chance!
P.S. If you still want a mug, you can purchase it from our Zazzle store and Zazzle’s Labor Day sale means everything is 25% off. (Zazzle forces us to charge at least a 5% royalty. We will donate any that we get to a local charity however.)
Although you can buy a Strasburg Rocks! 15oz Mug, we are giving one away…no purchase necessary. 🙂
Also, if you get someone else to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter and they either let us know (or you do)…you get another entry. Total honor system!
UPDATE: To count with Facebook, you must like our Facebook page, not the Facebook post that points to this article. Right now the latter is outnumbering the former. Go figure. 🙂
Hmmm…so, rules of the contest…I should have thought about this before eh…?Continue Reading
Between work, buying a house, and moving into the house I never officially announced the Strasburg Rocks! weather station and weather webcam. You can check them out via the links on our Weather, Conditions, & Webcam page.
Additionally, today we implemented free advertisements on our site (starting with a couple businesses we highly recommend). Interested in having yours show up? You can submit one here.Continue Reading
My beautiful wife Michelle announced that a couple packages arrived today…and I excitedly opened up a package including an awesome Zazzle 15oz mug (which will be a gift to Ron from Pauls Homes) along with another containing some Strasburg Rocks! business cards.
Now, shhhhh…Ron doesn’t know he’s going to get the mug tomorrow…so no telling! 🙂
P.S. Giving credit where credit it due…the business cards are thanks to Vistaprint, which is a tremendous place to get branded items.
Welcome to Strasburg Rocks!…a site celebrating a friendly town in the Colorado plains east of Denver.
We’ll blog…list handy links to businesses…government…etc…and give you a flavor of a small town that quickly stole our hearts.
This really is just a placeholder post…more to follow…please be patient…I mean, I’m putting this up even before closing on our house in Strasburg 🙂
Either way…this is the formal announcement that Strasburg Rocks! exists at http://strasburg.rocks…Continue Reading
