"I'd rather be charged less for a cup of coffee and have no refills.  My partner and I often share a cup to save on expenses.  Coffee is a big profit item for businesses, I was once told by an owner."

"Satellite also charges less for that cup of coffee, if I remember correctly. I get that it probably makes sense to discourage coffee-only folks, so tables can be used by customers buying meals. But, man, that price difference rubbed me the wrong way…"

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.

A Casual Conversation at Earth Day Turns to the Flying Star

Posted on April 21, 2015 at 10:30am 8 Comments

NOB HILL—”I don’t see you guys at the Flying Star in the morning any more,” he said.  I was ready to explain, but he continued.  “They changed their hours so my wife and I started going somewhere else.”



I nodded.  It was a familiar story.  In fact, that was what I was about to say…

The History Hack: 3 Reasons to Visit Fort Selden

Posted on April 14, 2015 at 10:30am 1 Comment

RADIUM SPRINGS—By my count, there are 16 historic forts in the state of New Mexico.  Though all are a bit different, except for Fort Bayard all were eventually abandoned by the Army to the dry wind and hordes of scavenging neighbors.  What remains is usually the same:  crumbling adobe walls, stone jails,…

Bugging Out: 24 Hours in Grants

Posted on March 31, 2015 at 1:51pm 2 Comments

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…

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…

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
