Warm weather sparks thoughts of outdoors

The recent, though probably not permanent, trend of warm weather turns one’s thoughts to outdoor activities. This is especially true when that trend is coupled with the garage cleaning — the connection being that all outdoor equipment is stored in one corner of the garage and I wanted to make sure that my two-person tent […]

Film shows Navy SEAL’s dedication

It's not too often that an action movie moves grown men to the sniffles but I'll wager "Act of Valor" had lots of big tough guys wiping tears away in the dark. I mostly missed the reviews before the movie's opening weekend but I did know that the producers broke the mold of action movie-making […]

Bloggers speculating governor wants changes

And the best Sandia can do is offer up two paragraphs of vague assurances that amount to “pay no attention to the man behind the […]
