It wasn't farming that settled the American West.  It was mining.  The lure of wealth in the form of precious metals like gold (and later, silver) enticed men from the east to leave home and family and make their way west to California. They called 'em the '49ers.  The year was 1849, and  Americ...

Sedona's not the only place in Arizona with red rocks.  This little canyon is hidden away in a wash next to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum.  I could hear tourists talking in the parking lot above me, but they couldn't see me, and had no idea of the beautiful canyon below them.  The setting su...

I know I'll get a lot of flak for saying "Arizona"...  Hawaii has spectacular sunsets.  The Florida Keys are nothing to sneeze at.  But when it comes to the end of day, I'd rather be in Arizona than anywhere else on earth! I took this photo just before the sun dropped below the mountains to the ...

Hiking down a wash south of the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum (it's a zoo) this afternoon, I came across two of the strangest saguaros I've ever seen.

Always, always carry a camera!  It's my mantra, and it's served me well in the past two years!  I was driving to work, and saw the Re/Max balloon over 22nd Street in Tucson, near "A" Mountain. I found the nearest parking lot, jumped out and nearly got run over.  Never mind; I got the shots! The ...

"We're so upside down on our mortgage that it will take us ten years to break even."  The Foreclosure Scenario The homeowner on the phone was calling me to see how soon after a foreclosure they could hope to qualify to buy a home.  "We're thinking about letting the bank keep the house, and rentin...

Can you believe this is a January landscape?  Mining is just another part of the landscape in Arizona, and it's one of the state's major employers.  The terraces above are part of the Sierrita Mine, located just west of the town of Green Valley, AZ.  To the east of Green Valley is one of the mos...

 Interest rates:  Up, Down, or Flat?  I'm betting on flat, but that could change with market volatility. Consumer Confidence numbers out yesterday were a little more optimistic than expected, and the stock market liked that.  It doesn't mean we're out of the woods by any measure ~ just that senti...

Tuesday, January 26, 2010 Up, down, or flat?  At the moment, rates are flat, as the market waits for the Fed's pronouncement on rates tomorrow at 2:15 EST. The Federal Reserve is meeting today and tomorrow.  Its December 16th press release included the following: The anticipated expiration dates ...
