  2. Mushroom ??

    After considering the benefits I've decided to try Lion's Mane mushroom supplement. Lots of evidence of supporting memory and nerve support. Has anyone experienced benefits from mushrooms other that the obvious psychotropic varieties. Turkey Tail mushrooms have been also been shown to be more...
  3. Free Nat Geo Maps

    National Geographic 7.5 min. topo's from the US are free downloads to your printer. natgeomaps.com/trail-maps/pdf-quads I haven't had time to go to yet but the article says the maps are scaled to print on letter size paper in 4 pages of 1/4 quads. Makes them more portable. I only know of one...
  4. The Legend Of Miner Mike

    I wonder if Miner Mike hangs here. He had a place in the Ozarks near Ark years back well off into the sticks. A mobile home near where he collected and he sold locally. I ran across what is still there when he left some years ago. Florida I'm told. Some emergency it's said. Nice quartz and...
  5. The Balloons Are Back

    It's the annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta or Fiasco depending on if you have the fight traffic. Considered the most photographed event in somewhere. Maybe the USA. This is from another year but nothings changed. I liked the corona.
  6. Photo Related

    My eye doc told me I have cataracts in both eyes. Sounds scary. Not to worry he said. I had one eye done. At first I thought the colors were washed out and there were halos around lights. After a week colors became the best I had seen. Halos gone. I thought at first my other eye was seeing...

    This is one of my cactus's that decided to go full bloom this year. Happy Boy
  8. Sail planes

    My first sail plain/glider flight. Can't explain it.
  9. Schrooms?

    Read in the paper that the City of Denver has de-criminalized magic mushrooms. Not for sale (yet) but allowed to possess. I thought maybe the Netherlands or maybe some distant island somewhere but not the US. Our agencies have been influencing (pressuring) other countries to embrace our drug...
  10. Weather Warning

    rumor has it: Due to the extreme cold, all Wall-Mart customers are being urged to wear two pairs of pajamas.:)
  11. Cave Rescue

    I posted this in the cave forum but I thought I'd post here also. I spent time in wild caves as a member of a NSS Grotto and understand many of the problems of cave rescue. The lessons learned over and again is let cavers perform rescues in caves. This was learned in the attempted and failed...
  12. Cave Rescue

    The lessons learned over and again is let cavers perform rescues in caves. This was learned in the attempted and failed rescue of Floyd Collins in the 20's. A great book BTW. on failure and why much of it is unnecessary. All the people that are trying to get the boys out are for the most part...
  13. Old News?

    Don't know if y'all already know but for those that use Google Earth, they have made Earth Pro available free. It's the same $400 program originally offered. It might be because others are going to offer their software. I don't know but that's OK. Anyway it has higher resolution and other...
  14. Don't know what this means.

    Sandhill Cranes fly to New Mexico for the winter and fly back to places like Nebraska in the early spring. They started flying back already. Too soon. I know they don't get weather reports but this is a bit of a puzzle. It's been like mid spring here with no participation for months. I...
  15. Happy Halloween Llorona

    La Llorona roams the New Mexico ditch banks especially tomorrow......
  16. Balloon Fiasco

    The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta got underway this morning. I didn't get a head count but usually it's around 700 balloons all going up at once for the next 10 days. No point in telling people to keep their eyes on the road as no one does these days anyway.
  17. Soil Maps

    Wondering if anyone used USDA Soil Maps. An article in Fine Homebuilding from way back in 2001 was about the maps in terms of building stability but they looked interesting as a compare of topo's next to the soil maps. The soil maps tell of types of soils and might be helpful locating good...
  18. Ramrod Key Remembered

    You will be missed....
  19. Linguistics.

    I was thinking about how many old sayings are still used but few know what they mean or their origins. ”Going haywire" "Being up to snuff" "Do not Fold, Spindle, or Mutilate" What are "Ink Wells, Blotters, Fountain Pens" used for? What are "Phone Booths", "Pay Phones", "Phone Books"...
  20. Bad Idea??

    For starts I'm not a coin person and this is about coins. Today I was watching Pawn Stars. A guy brought in a $20 gold coin. The expert said it was a $100000 coin BUT someone had cleaned it. The expert saw the damage right away. He said a coin can loose half it's value by cleaning. I just...
