Chimayo New Mexico Vacation

Chimayo New Mexico Vacation Rentals

This past January I spent a week in New Mexico with my good friend Kate. It was her birthday and I said months before that I’d go wherever she wanted to go. We went to New Mexico. In the 6 days there (less if you don’t count arrival on Saturday and leaving on Friday) we put 800 miles on the car we rented. I did the driving.  I was ready for a vacation from my vacation when i returned!

We stayed in Albuquerque and daily left out for day trips. We went to Acoma (already blogged about that) and then headed up to Abiquiu and Cerro Pedernal and checked out the area where Georgia O’Keefe lived for so many years and yes, I know why she loved the area so much. AMAZING!

We drove to Ojo Caliente and Chimayo...

White Sands New Mexico Vacation

White Sands New Mexico Vacation Rentals

The Tularosa Basin, in southern New Mexico, isn’t especially overcrowded today. It was practically uninhabited, at least by the lights of Washington bean-counters, when, 70-odd years ago, chunks of it were given over to serve as a range on which to light up missiles and barrage the poor horned lizards and pronghorn with artillery and tank fire. The firepower would become more awesome in 1945, when the basin saw the world’s first atomic explosion, the one from which bomb inventor Robert Oppenheimer recoiled and said, “Now I am become Death, destroyer of worlds.”

For those of us who grew up during the Cold War and all its weird duck-and-cover glory, White Sands, in the heart of the Tularosa, is and shall ever be ground zero of a particular state of mind...

Albuquerque New Mexico Vacation

New Mexico Vacation Rentals

When you think of traveling by RV down autumn roads made bright by fall foliage, do you think of Albuquerque? You should, because the region surrounding this ancient New Mexico city comes to life when the leaves begin to turn.

One of the best-known ways to see miles and miles of autumn color in Albuquerque is to take the tram to the top of Sandia Crest. Standing more than ten thousand three hundred feet above Cibola National Forest, this peak offers a panoramic view in autumn that is simply stunning. You can also drive to the top of the mountain on Sandia Crest Road.

If you like to do your leaf peeping a little closer to the ground, hiking in Cibola National Forest will fill the bill...

Ranch Becomes Part of the Little Missouri National Grasslands

Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns today announced that the USDA Forest Service has purchased a 5,200 acre parcel—which houses the historically significant and natural resource rich Elkhorn Ranch in western North Dakota.

The Elkhorn Ranch—located in the Badlands of western North Dakota—was the site where President Theodore Roosevelt operated a ranch in the 1880s. The ranch, purchased for $4.8 million from a private owner, becomes part of the Little Missouri National Grasslands. The Forest Service will honor existing legal rights and valid permits. Traditional uses such as livestock grazing, oil and gas development, and hunting will continue...

Can I show different users different content?

Within limits. The CMS Webs User Manager currently only supports a few levels (“groups”) of users. You can show different content to different groups, but you cannot show each individual user a unique set of content. Put another way, every user in the group will see the same content as the other users in the group. If you really need this functionality, there are some third party components which add additional flexibility.

Grants Support Administration’s Renewable Energy Goals and the Healthy Forests Restoration Act

Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns today announced the award of $6.2 million in grants to more than two dozen small businesses and community groups to develop innovative uses for woody biomass, including renewable energy and new products, from national forests.

“These grants help communities, entrepreneurs and others turn residues from forest restoration activities into marketable forest and energy products,” said Johanns. “Not only will these projects reduce the risk of wildfire, they will help us to achieve the President’s energy goals. Our farm bill proposals would take this effort to the next level by providing funding for research and new woody biomass projects.”

The Administration’s farm bill proposals would accelerate the development of new technologies to better utilize low-valu...
