It's that time of year again--- the New Mexico State Fair is in full swing beginning this weekend. And that means horse shows- lots of horse shows!

Today and tomorrow, September 15th & 16th, is the Arabian, Morgan, Saddlebred & Hackney show. Monday, September 17th is devoted to Paints and Appaloosas Tuesday, September 18th will see the Pinto Show Wednesday, September 19th … (0 comments)

los lunas: Eating from the community garden - 06/29/09 07:00 AM
It's pretty much a no-brainer that eating local and organic food is best for one's physical health.
It's also a no-brainer that being involved with congenial friends in a tight-knit community is healthiest for one's emotional health.
Enter the "Community Garden."
Not all of us live out in the country with abundant land for a huge vegetable garden, nor are we all equipped with the knowledge of organic farming methods, or the time and inclination to spend loads of time alone with just nature for company.
The community garden enables anyone to get together, swap info, chat and visit … (2 comments)

los lunas: Bad News For Neighborhood Association - 06/27/09 06:56 AM
Folks in the San Clemente neighborhood of Los Lunas, New Mexico, have been fighting back against a decision by the Valencia County Commission to rezone 30 acres of land to I-3, "Hevay Industrial Use" to accomodate a bulk fuel terminal (see my blog post http://activerain.com/blogsview/1040106/residents-are-fighting-back-against-valencia-county-commission for mor details.)
The neighborhood association has just lost a major battle in that fight, though; District Court Judge George P. Eichwad has just upheld the county commission's decision, much to the dismay of local residents.
Plains Marketing, the business that requested the zone change, estimates that approximately 185 tanker trucks will be visiting the terminal … (2 comments)

los lunas: Where is Adelino? Tome? Locating Valencia County's Small Communities - 05/30/07 02:47 PM
Even other residents of Valencia County, New Mexico, may well be confused by some locations stated in real estate ads. Where is Adelino? Or Tome? How about Peralta, or Los Chaves? Are Bosque and Bosque Farms the same thing?So here's your primer to Valencia County communities:
Most of the communities of Valencia County lie along the green ribbon of the Rio Grande. Some are actually incorporated towns, others are communities that are, in some ways at least, a part of the surrouding larger communities.
On the east side of the Rio Grande, coming south from Albuquerque, the first town you'd encounter is Bosque Farms, a growing … (2 comments)

los lunas: Los Lunas Ten Commandments: Mysterious Ancient Decalogue Stone in Hebrew and Greek scripts - 05/07/07 06:31 AM
The lands of Los Lunas are home to a great historical mystery: the Ten Commandments stone, which seems to be thousands of years old!  
The inscription, carved into the face of a large boulder on the side of Hidden Mountain, just west of Los Lunas and about 35 miles south of Albuquerque, is an abridged version of the Ten Commandments, or Decalogue. The language is Hebrew, and the script is the Old Hebrew alphabet, with a few Greek letters mixed in. The stone has been the subject of much scholarly debate since its initial scientific discovery in 1930 by Professor Frank Hibben, an archaeologist at University … (3 comments)
