"Unfortunately, soaps don't work very well here, due to the rock-hard water - a water softener is a necessity for these nice, smelly soaps.  My wife hides handmade soap packets in clothes hampers and closets since they smell good - but they…"

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.

It Was Earth Day: Time for Soap, Goats, & a Whiff of History.

NOB HILL—I have always had a soft spot in my heart for germs.  I’m covered with them and we seem to get along very nicely, thank you.  So it was completely out of character for me to buy a scented bar of soap about a year and a half ago in York, England.  It had been recommended by our travel guide, Martin.  He was…

Ten Predictions: Gutsy Calls Written On My Birthday

Posted on April 19, 2016 at 10:30am 0 Comments

NOB HILL—Yesterday was my birthday.  Here’s what Ben Moffett had to say about my age:



“Jon, take it from a dəsˈleks ic -- you are looking damn good for a 37 year old.”



Thanks Ben...I guess.  At any rate, I’m going to use my birthday as an excuse to make some far-out predictions about the state…

Bugging Out: The Quebradas Backcountry Byway

Posted on April 12, 2016 at 10:30am 0 Comments

The Sunday drive, a common form of family entertainment when I was a boy, seems to have become pretty rare these days.  Maybe cheaper gasoline will help re-institute this wonderful pastime, for it is both educational and a great way to keep the family talking together in these days when so many forces are…

Going Mano a Mano Against the Big and Famous

Posted on April 5, 2016 at 10:00am 1 Comment

NOB HILL, ALBUQUERQUE—I’m sick and tired of people who run down Albuquerque and New Mexico for not having much of anything important or breathtaking.  Well, our state has features that are every bit as good as those in the rest of the country.  In fact, I’ve made a list to prove it!  Add to it if you…

The Four Waves of Coffee

Posted on March 29, 2016 at 10:30am 6 Comments

NOB HILL—I’m a First Wave guy living a Second Wave life.  But now, in a world of Fourth Wave changes, I look to upgrade to today...this second decade of the 21st century.

I was born a bit before the middle of the 20th century in a northern Illinois factory town of 100,000…

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.
