But in general still just chilling.

Thinking we could really use another c99 meetup next month... if anybody's interested, I can make plans.

You can't expect to wield Supreme Military power, just cause some corporate tosser lobbed a contract at you!

@detroitmechworks Maybe depends on the weather and road conditions. I wonder if this winter's going to be like last year was, with all of the snow and ice?

@Centaurea and people were able to ski around Thanksgiving for the first time in years.

This year at Tday weekend according to the NWS forecast discussion the temps are running 15-25 degrees above normal. Highs in the 60’s. Hope it doesn't mean another epic drought.

IF anyone is interested http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/ has US map with drought areas by state.

Speaking of snow and ice

Hope you get to meetup!

A truth of the nuclear age/climate change: we can no longer have endless war and survive on this planet. Oh sh*t.

@detroitmechworks Reminds me that my mother raised 5 kids and was quite a good baker. Now she is in a tech nursing facility with multiple health issues including Alz/Dem. So thankful for all the years of her great food, served so lovingly....

This especially chaps my @ss.

But Norquist et al want to return to the rate during colonial times, thinks that would be great.

When we are home for a few months at our place in Santa Fe we volunteer with WildEarth Guardians.

Recently we were assisting with an event in Albuquerque and met Robert Kennedy Jr. He was there to promote a new partnership for the Rio Grande River.

Perhaps you know that this mighty river, which runs from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico, is the border between TX and Mexico and is fed by a tributary from Mexico. Some years it barely reaches the Gulf.

Humans yeah, but also much wildlife depends on it. One of the greatest wildlife spectacles in North America occurs at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge on the Rio Grande near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Thousands of Sandhill Cranes, Snow Geese and other geese and ducks migrate there each winter. Seeing them all lift off at dawn with the cacaphony of sound is truly amazing. Bald eagles and coyotes feed around the edges. Something else!

If you are interested in what Kennedy was up to check out this article about the work ahead.

@divineorder There was also a vagrant which should never be there. I want to say that it was a barred goose, not at all normal for the area. I seem to recall that we were directed to some locally famous eatery by the locals but can't think of a name.

@enhydra lutris Mexican Gray Wolves reintroduced in BosquedelApache like they have been in the Gina. Ted Turner has supported captive breeding program for MGW into the GilaWilderness. WildEarth Guardians has done some great work for wolves in NM.

We had a spectacular day. The temperature here in Safford AZ was 77. Fabulous! We went rock hounding and will head home with a few treasures. Lots of soaking in the mineral waters. I'm enjoying life.

Have a beautiful Friday evening and weekend, folks! Pleasantry
