  • Palabras Pintorescas - Magnetic fields affecting weather patterns

    My 1910 Webster’s Dictionary defines weather as “a state of the atmosphere.” I’d have to say that at the moment, we are in  a heck of a state in this present atmosphere. We have experienced two of the driest months on record here at the Gascon reporting weather station, with no relief in sight.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - The role of the Rancheros Visitadores

    Those horrible winds continue to howl a I write this in mid February. I just discovered a news item in an old Albuquerque Journal. Los Alamos was the snowiest spot in the state in January 2001. We recorded 50 inches of snow, with a moisture content of 2.13 here at our Gascon station. Oh, for those good old days!

  • Mora County Notebook - Former Rangerettes honored

    On Saturday, after district games between Mora Rangers and Rangerettes and Santa Fe Prep the Mora Rangerettes with their coaches, families and friends got together to celebrate and honor teams of 1985, 1987, 1988, 1991 and 1992. Five banners in their honor were hung from the rafters of the gym. These five teams made it through the finals but came up short of the win of the state championship.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Household remedies of the old days

    ‘To know what you do know and not know what you do not know is true knowledge.” So said Confucius a very long time ago. This quote is on the cover of a very old and terribly worn cookbook that belonged to my grandmother, which she inherited from my mother.

    This is one of the oldest cookbooks I have in my big collection of cookbooks.

    The title reads, “Tested recipes compiled by Ladies of the congressional Church, Lancaster, Wis.” This is the second and revised edition and might have been published in the late 1800s.
