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.

Is It Time For UNM To Give Up On Football?

Posted on October 18, 2016 at 10:30am 6 Comments

NOB HILL, ABQ — For the most part I am totally in love with the 21st century.  Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, LED’s, Pokemon Go, electric bicycles, solar, iphones...hey, I’m there!  But if there is an overall theme to this century I would have to say it is the disassembly of almost everything we knew from last…


Bugging Out: Exploring Alamogordo

Posted on October 11, 2016 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Alamogordo has plenty to offer besides White Sands National Monument.  For instance there is the “Cloud-Climbing” railroad in nearby Cloudcroft as well as the spectacular Three Rivers Petroglyph Site.  One of my favorite petroglyphs was the big horn sheep pierced by three arrows.…

Bugging Out: Navajo Lake and the San Juan

Posted on September 20, 2016 at 10:30am 1 Comment

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

Posted on September 6, 2016 at 10:37am 0 Comments

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…

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.

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.
