(Note: there is no particular reason I am posting this tonight. But the idea has been weighing on me for about a week, and tonight is apparently when it needed to come out. This is purely personal: no politics were harmed in the making of this post.) I first met Sean in 1986, when we […]

I first heard this song on a cross-country drive from Albuquerque to Tampa in 1990, and I liked it. I was a long drive (we got into Talahassee at 4 am after driving from San Antonio) and apparently the song was very new or popular because it played pretty regularly that night. It wasn’t until […]

After hijacking PIT 20 last night with music videos, at the suggestion of @garymcvey, I am calling on everyone to created a genre-based, curated music list for Ricochet. This is the one for New Wave music of the late 1970s and early 1980s*. This is not the PIT, as it is focused on music, but […]

Recently a couple of articles on recent or impending scientific breakthroughs were posted in the PIT. I thought it might be interesting to get members’ takes on one of them, and what it might mean for future society, both in general and in specifics. The first involved a physicist who claims to have proved mathematically […]

Red or Green?

 

“Red or green?” A seemingly odd question coming from your waiter or waitress. Just about anywhere else, but New Mexico, where it is, in fact, the official State Question.

It refers to these guys, and is asking which one you want smothering your food: red and green chile. They’re the same thing, except the red has been allowed to ripen before harvesting.

Not “chillies,” “peppers,” or “chilis.” And they are a way of life around here.

But I heard this in today’s sermon, and thought it was worth sharing: “Burning down others’ opinions doesn’t make us right. It makes us arsonists.” ― Bob Goff, Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People Preview Open

My eldest, a senior in high school, is taking an economics class. The latest assignment in that class is to create a board game. I found out over Spring Break this year that, my son is actually very conservative. We were waiting for his mom and his siblings to finish a roller coaster at Knott’s […]

Forgive the possible faux-pas, but are there any details on this? I travel a lot and need to put dates in stone well before the actual date or else I’m off to the four corners of the world. If there’s a Vegas Meet-up group that has deets, please let me know. (I looked, I promise!) […]
