Last week, a few of my friends invited me to skip Superbowl and go on a hike with them up in the Jemez mountains. The weather has been gorgeous here in New Mexico and I enthusiastically agreed. The Jemez area is in a geothermal area. Back in the day (about 1.2 million years ago), a […]
Pine nuts are delicious — except when they make everything else taste like crap! The Pine Mouth Predicament.

I love stories. When I was a kid, I remember listening raptly while my second grade teacher read us our daily chapter of Where the Red Fern Grows or Old Yeller (I’m not sure why all the books were about a boy and his dog(s), or why my teacher liked to make us cry by […]
