Have a hankering to go into space? About 30 miles from True or Consequences, NM is the new space station.  It is being created with tax money from citizens of NM, particularly those of Dona Ana County, NM.  Their (our) hope is that the space station will bring tourist and other business income to...

Perhaps you are one of the majority who are part of activerain.com, real estate professionals.  I have a real estate license that is used for referral purposes and I meet all of the requirements to renew that license, every three years in New Mexico.  However, because I don't practice the profess...

Do you know the difference between chili and chile?  In New Mexico, particularly in Hatch, it makes a huge difference. While growning up in PA, moving many times throughout the country, and landing eventually in Michigan for 20+ years, the word chili, was spelled with an 'i.' Then, I moved to New...

Can a gray sky be good?  Perhaps your perspective is unique and you have your own answer to this question.  It might depend on where you live. For me, one of the pleasures of living in New Mexico (having moved from the grayer side of Michigan) is the sunny sky about 300 days a year. (In Las Cruse...

Lill the education pitbull was the real star of the show today.  She is one of New Mexico's State treasures, in my opinion. Over the very cold weather of early February when pipes were bursting and heat was off for thousands, the shelter in Espanola found itself without water and heat.  100 +/- r...

Perhaps once you have moved someplace new.  It might have been merely a new neighborhood, a town, a city, a country.  Perspective on first arrival is different than for those who have been there years or decades. Bill and Joan recently moved to Las Cruses from NYC, making a new hometown.  Now the...

You probably have one sure sign of spring, one that you can count on every year.  This is the one that is not dictated by what the calendar or moon says. Out my northern New Mexico window right now there is a bird feeder.  It is a sure sign that we are getting much closer to spring.  It is the fe...

You must have a favorite pet. Perhaps it is your dog, cat, goat. In some recent survey I took, one person named their lizard.  They did not specify what type, just as initially one might not say "my pet collie dog."  I guess that some kids have lizards for pets as well. This got me thinking of a ...

  Do you love the warmth and vision of a fire…the ones in fireplaces?   I really don’t understand the physics of it but it does work.  In New Mexico and perhaps other places, a kiva fireplace is the norm.  We have two in our house.  They are typically in a corner of the room.  They have a rounded...

These snow geese are taking off in the morning at Bosque Del Apache, a National Wildlife Refuge, south of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  This protected wetlands is active all winter with birds that have migrated to NM, waiting out the weather north.  The preserve is home to thousands of birds, represe...
