Hmmm... I am neither a progressive or a chic stuffy art snob with a specialty in arrogance, ignorance and utter stupidity.

I guess I am going to be an anomaly when I get to Santa Fe.

this is childish. you have quite the nerve to accuse me of dishonesty.

the name of the restraunt was "Julian's" located on the corner of Indian Wells and Pecan where the White Sands Family Practice now exists. unfortunately it closed down in 2000 after less than a year in business. interestingly, it was an eclectic menu and progressive type atmosphere (didn't allow smoking even before it became state law). the family that owned it has been in the area for generations. their daughter (my daughter-in-law) was the waitress there i referred to as being chidded for wearing pants. i thought it was a joke or exaggeration - she assured me it wasn't. believe it or don't. your decision. i'm not going to answer on this again.

Alamo is not progressive. period. you like the town. i like it too. but i am not going to sugar-coat descriptions for people who want honest information.

As we thought it was a joke or exaggeration too just like you did.

Thanks for telling us about the resturant and its name.

Fear not Towanda, there are a good number of regular old state workers and some normal people too. It's not all as bad as we make it out to be. It just really is the City Different. Part of my habitual SF bashing is because of personal experiences I had there, and we all know that sort of stuff is just anecdotal.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to see something for yourself.

An accusation would have gone something like " ... I don't believe
you ... " or " ... I think you are just making this/stuff up ... " or
" .... you don't know what you are talking about ... ".

I saw none of that in his post.

if i offended one person i likely offended others, so i appologize to anyone i upset with my remark. this is not the place to vent my frustration and i was wrong to do that.

6'3" - my appology to you. i over reacted and that was not fair to you. i took offense too easily. a lesson learned for me. i hope there will be no hard feelings...

I am so offended that I will likely need years of therapy to get over it. I'll send you the bills, Ottercycle. (Just kidding!)

I'm interested in Alamogordo, too. I can make my own 'progressive' little sphere if I need to. It sounds good to me, if a little warm in the summer. If you ask for a relocation packet on line from the Alamogordo C of C, they will send you a nice big packet of info. It seems that the main thing to be aware of, according to other posts, is that parts of the town flood occasionally, so don't live in that area.

We are planning on going to Las Cruces to visit also.
Be sure to check out nm state gov websites about building/licensing requirements.Things have gotten really strict the last several years. A homeowner needs to pass tests for electrical, plumbing etc. State building codes have been pushed into most counties.Even in very remote areas, you just about need an architect to build your own. This will certainly boost the mobile home sales in new mexico as would be owner/builders say **** it and go for the easy instant home.

We had a gullywasher yesterday afternoon, and there was some street flooding. It did seem to drain off fast on White Sands, though. Midland was no different in that regard, so no surprises there.

If you are buying property through the usual channels, the seller has to disclose whether or not the property flooded, and there are known parts of town to avoid, too, after last summer. I didn't even look in those areas at all.

I even listed previous flooding when I did my contract as a seller in Midland....it was due to a burst washing machine hose, but I still disclosed it. That same disclosure is required on New Mexico contracts also for existing properties. I also discussed this at length with the agent and the builder. My backyard has a very definite slope from the patio to the back fence, and has some obvious slope in front, too.
