Bugging Out: 24 Hours in Grants

Grants, just 70 miles west of Albuquerque, is the gateway to much of Northwest New Mexico, including Mount Taylor, La Ventana arch, El Morro, Acoma and Laguna Pueblos, the Ice Cave, La Bandera Crater, Crownpoint, and Bluewater Lake.  Yet, the actual town of Grants is visited much less often.  I said to my wife MaryAnn, “Let’s…See More

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.

How Quirky is Burque? Let’s Check Craigslist.

Posted on March 24, 2015 at 10:30am 2 Comments

NOB HILL—Oh, I have read the articles and blog posts about Albuquerque being high on the list of quirky towns.  They usually cite examples like Kelly’s Brewpub being in an old gas station.



First of all, it wasn’t a gas station, it was a car dealership.  Kelly’s just decorated it to look…

Touring New Mexico: The Bird of Bitter Lake

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 10:30am 0 Comments

ROSWELL, NM--The state-wide buzz among people who watch birds is centered on one wet plot of ground just outside of Roswell.  The area involved is the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge.  And all the attention is on a bird...literally one single bird.  That bird is a Common Crane, also known as the…

Saul (Not That Saul, Saul Hoffman) Has An Art Opening

Posted on February 10, 2015 at 10:30am 2 Comments

OLD TOWN--Despite common attribution, I doubt Plato ever said, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”  He certainly didn’t think that everyone’s opinions about a piece of art were equally valid, nor were those opinions all that was there.  No, he thought there really was an idea of beauty that was…

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.

Wow, Jon. It was so good to see you with Doris. Your house looks wonderful. It looks like you. Take care. I hope to see you soon. Hopefully, I will have a good year. One never quite knows at Mental Vista given its cast of characters. Carri is working as an events organizer for Richard Romero. Love, Holly
