I’ve been posting on my other blog, bahfish.com, since early in the Summer; but I’ve come back to post here as it’s the blog where most of my family & friends look for updates.  I’ve had this blog running for nearly ten years.  I know there are some broken links and problems with images over the last two years so I will work to get those corrected. “Love & Tolerance” is our code.  

These guys have been in the trees behind the house for the last couple of weeks.  We’ve seen many more than we saw last year, maybe because of all the rain we’ve had.  It rained more than an inch here last week.    

Here’s an awesome new streaming music service for EDM-heads (and feets).  The drum & bass feed is outstanding. Drum & Bass feed from Beatgasm

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip cookies made with Mexican-sourced flour, sugars, cinnamon, vanilla and a tiny bit of anise. Chocolate chips are Nestle’s brand but the bag said they were born in Mexico. Dairy and pecans are locally sourced. The Mexican sugars and vanilla make these mild and smooth, full of subtle flavors!  Yummmm!

Great show by Rido at Let It Roll in Prague last year.  Isn’t it time to promote an outdoor bass music festival in New Mexico??? So my heart beats somewhere below 60Hz DC…  Does yours?  Loud and low is better.  ;-)

What an awesome little scooter!  The Icebear Mad Dog is a 49cc scooter that borrows from the stripped-down minibike styling of the Honda Ruckus; but with better performance and a sweet pricetag: under $1500 for most models.  I wouldn’t ride it on the interstate but for local trips to the grocery, around the ‘hood, or even light trails, it’s a totally rude little rig!

I don’t really understand why the US Coca-Cola bottlers are not selling an old-school cane sugar alternative, but Mexican Coca-Cola definitely rocks!  If you’re going to have a soft drink, why not have the REAL Real Thing?!? You can buy Mexican Coca-Cola at The Merc on 165 for about $1.20/bottle – and at Albertson’s in Bernalillo for $1/bottle when you buy three.  Sometimes you find them in convenience stores for not much more.  Costco sells 24 bottles for $19. Walmart does not sell Mexican Coca-Cola. Mix this stuff with Carrizozo Cherry Juice (also sold at The… Read Article →

Lots of people have sleep difficulty and depression-like symptoms in the middle of winter.  Some are diagnosed with something called Seasonal Affective Disorder – and some of those are successfully treated with light therapy. There’s been some compelling research these last few years into the health impacts from our portable electronic devices (smartphones, e-readers, tablet computers) and LCD displays (computers and televisions).  One of the things researchers have discovered is that all of these devices emit much higher levels of white and blue light, and that high levels of white and blue light interrupt production of… Read Article →

Placitas Cafe is located on state highway 165 about halfway between Bernalillo and the village of Placitas.  It’s a quirky little dive full of people who all seem to know each other, and a menu with everything from hot dogs and gourmet salads to obvious local favorites – and the best green chile cheeseburger in the state.  Seriously.  The guys cooking don’t seem particularly interested in notoriety, so they don’t enter their food in the various competitions around the state; but their GCCB is dead-to-rights the best one you’ll find anywhere in New Mexico. Don’t… Read Article →

  After my heart attack I told my heart, “Listen.  If you attack me again I’ll kick your ass to the curb!”
