"What is said...what is unsaid...Bryce Milligan bridges them both.  I don't think there is a better explanation of why poets write and artists create than his Reach Out.  Thanks.  And Margaret, see you this afternoon at 3:00 for…"

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.

With Robby on the Cerro Blanco Trial

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 10:00am 3 Comments

TAJIQUE, NM--Last month my grandson Robert Bennett, biking partner Mike Moye and I decided to hike to the top of the Manzano Mountains.  I have used this trail several times before and it has a special place in my heart.  I guess it comes from having done it so often that it feels like an old…

It was late morning before MaryAnn and I left our motel in Taos and started a brief one-day tour of the recently designated Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.



The Monument consists of two segments.  The southern part, called Orilla Verde, is reached through the village of Pilar and closely…

Chester Nez, John Kerry, & “The Curse of the Bambino”

Posted on June 10, 2014 at 10:00am 2 Comments

CIVIC PLAZA--Ten years ago, on October 26, 2004, Chester Nez stood here on Civic Plaza.  We were in the middle of the Bush/Kerry presidential campaign and John Kerry needed something of a boost.  The stage at the north end of Civic Plaza was crowded with VIP’s trying to lend Kerry a hand.  I took out my vintage cell…

Coding in the Elementary Classroom...30 Years Ago!

Posted on June 3, 2014 at 10:00am 3 Comments

The New York Times recently ran a piece on teaching elementary kids how to write code.  In fact, a lot of people have jumped on this as a way to create some interest in computer science...and as a way to sell yet another program to our already semi-privatized schools.  Well, teaching elementary kids how to…

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
