Where I Live:
Nob Hill
About Me:
My real name is Jon Knudsen. Unfortunately "Jon Knudsen" is both hard to pronounce and to remember. Also, Johnny _Mango seems to be a braver person than Jon Knudsen. And better looking. Maybe that's why Jon's GF MaryAnn calls him "Johnny" most of the time.

3:05 PM:  Expectations are said to be high for Hillary, low for Trump.  I don’t think so.  Everybody knows who Trump is.  Every day there is more coverage of what Donald said than anything else in the newspaper.  The…

Bugging Out: Navajo Lake and the San Juan

Due to an odd and unforeseen opportunity, a friend of mine became the owner of a 31’ fifth-wheel trailer and an old Ford truck with a huge diesel engine.  We went down to Truth or Consequences to pick it up, where it had been sitting for some time.…

In a Weird Year, the Best Grapes, Apricots, & Tomatoes

NOB HILL, Albuquerque — In a year where June played tag with triple digits, where most of the season’s rain fell in the space of 1½ hours, and where we wore jackets to early morning coffee in August, what in the hell grows good?



General Chaos seemed to be running things in our garden for…

When It Got Hot...We Went to Eagle Nest

NOB HILL—After weeks of 100° temperatures early this summer here in Albuquerque, my wife and I decided to head north into the high country east of Taos.  This whole area surrounding New Mexico’s highest mountain, Wheeler Peak, is often referred to as “The Enchanted Circle,” taking its name from a loop of…

How The Right Wing In ABQ Screwed It Up.

NOB HILL, Albuquerque—Sometimes here under the enchanted skies of New Mexico, we seem pretty far removed from the issues of working people.  Organized labor has felt this and is under constant attack from many sides, including lobbying groups such as the Rio Grande Foundation.



Yesterday afternoon, while…

Happy belated birthday.  It's pleasurable to be able to get a Tierra de los Encantados fix electronically.  Heather tells me that a NM chile fix is on the way via a homesick New Mexican returning to NashVegas. 

Interesting fact:  Nashville is ranked number 2 in the country for bachelor and bachelorette parties, trailing only Las Vegas—as in Nevada, not NM.

Hi Jon, Did you know Aaron brews his own too?  Did he learn it in 4th/5th?

Thanks for your blog about the backwardness of UNM when it comes to education and funding. :) On another note, many profs at UNM have little slips of paper that say, "I make ___ days of the football coach's salary to educate the students at UNM." Generally in the 20's or below...

Thanks Johnny. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I go 'home' and vist the Roswell Museum and Art Center. Being from there, I've always been a Peter Hurd fan and it's nice to see more art in Roswell outside of the alien murals!

Hey John. Great to hear from you! I am glad you contacted me. I just changed jobs and am staying a lot more local to town after 4 years of pretty constant travel. I am a member a local computer user group that will meet on DukeCityFix so I figured I would join, but did not expect to immediately find a few blasts from my past. Good times! I still have many fond memories of "Roach City" and Monte Vista...

I looked over you blog from your cycling trip. That looked awesome.
