Goatscaping, or the art of using goats to maintain property, has been around since Adam was knee high to a June bug. Goats are tough, notorious for eating pretty much anything and are relatively easy to manage. more
I received a lot of feedback on my last article on forgiveness. People came up to me and said how could I forgive such a person? Was I exonerating him for what he had done? A little recap. Last month I wrote about my stepfather, Tobie, and how when I was a young child 6 years old until I was 13 years old, he used to beat me often with a belt. I can only surmise it was because I didn’t act like how a boy should act. I played with dolls, played “house” with the neighborhood girls, cried easily, and, in general, I just didn’t act like a boy. more
I must preface this by admitting that I have never been a dog owner, and don’t plan to become one. But when one of our regulars came into the office here at Rose Valley and said, “I swear, every RV in my row has a dog in it except mine!” I began wondering. Why make RVing more difficult and inconvenient by dragging a dog along? I mean, the kids are finally gone, so why make life more complicated? more

“Where is everyone?” I asked the two young women at the migrant shelter in Deming. The armory was full of neatly arrayed cots, but they were all empty. Other than a few occasional Brazilians, this superbly organized and staffed facility has been abandoned by the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). In mid-May, the CBP simply dumped several hundred migrants there leaving their care in the hands of the residents of this small town of about 14,000. The response, however, was been extraordinary. Managed by officials from the city and the fire department as well as numerous volunteers, Deming has provided these migrants with a unique level of care. It’s tragic to hear the President complain about the need for more facilities and to know that the care in the federal facilities is awful when a superb program like Deming’s has been largely abandoned. more

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” So said Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, 2500 years ago. In current, gender-neutral language: “You never step into the same river twice.” more
There are two documents of paramount importance to American history: The Declaration of Independence, which forged our national identity, and the United States Constitution, which set forth the framework for the federal government that is still in use today. While Independence Day is a beloved national holiday, fewer people know about Constitution Week, an annual commemoration of the living document that upholds and protects the freedoms central to our American way of life. This year, the annual celebration begins on Sept. 17. more
After lengthy delays, Virgin Galactic has officially moved into its Gold LEED standard Gateway to Space building at Spaceport America. For me it all started at Holloman Air Force base in 2004 with the Ansari X Prize. Experimental space plane SpaceShipOne took the $10,000,000 prize and I was hooked. I was in Las Cruces for the 2006 Wirefly X Prize Cup and back at Holloman for the 2007 X Prize Lunar Lander Challenge. more
