Start by calling and holding elected officals accountable. We have had a history of non-involvement and a culture of individuals treating teachers like babysitters and cops. Stop pumping money into schools that are in need of improvement and shut them down.

And the elected officials and schools are accountable for the weather how?

Over in the Albuq forum they're whooping it up over the sprinkles of rain they received in the last 24 hours. I guess from reading those comments that I must have set some sort of state record at my house since I awoke to find a surprising 0.30" in my rain gauge this morning.

But that is going to be offset by the "brown rain" forecast for the weekend, along with 55mph wind gusts!

So much for "April Shower!"

I didn't want to make a thread for this, but let me say, *waves* hello!
Partner and I have been toying with desert living for quite some time -- we love Vegas/Nevada. I completely forgot about New Mexico until my boss brought it up, about living in Albuquerque for a few years. I forgot that NM is also a desert state lol

It's like.. we don't hear much about NM on the news. I like that. It seems like a nice, very quiet state.
I'm curious: where does NM stand politically? I can't live in a totally conservative area as my partner and I.. well, are both guys lol
But it seems that desert living seems very Libertarian, where everyone minds their business and no one cares what others do.

I wouldn't even begin to know where to look about information or areas to want to live -- so is there a website(s) that hold a lot of info about NM? Cost of living?

Thanks New Mexicans. Take care =)

Okay - but have you ever had enchiladas stacked pancake style with two fried eggs on top? The ONLY way I like them - with eggs, I mean. My dad an I had a favorite restaurant that served them the way we liked - now long gone. The Hacienda, located right on the Rio Grande in Smeltertown (El Paso).

Yes. I've had red enchiladas both stacked and rolled topped with fried eggs!

Delicious, indeed, even for breakfast. But a restaurant in Alamogordo topped my huevos rancheros with red chile sauce--on a plastic plate. The whole thing was topped with cheese that didn't even begin to melt.

I had them return it to the kitchen to heat it up.....more often than not, breakfast plates in Alamogordo arrived cool. There is NO excuse for that.

As far as I'm concerned, the plates should have to be brought to the table with hotpads...and a warning to the diners that the plate is HOT.

Being a native of El Paso, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

I MISS Tex-Mex. I will have to go back to Alpine, Midland or El Paso to get good food.

But even if I couldn't get good Tex-Mex in Alamogordo, what food I could get should have been decent, but 9 times out of 10, it was just plain lousy.

That's a ringing endorsement for Alamogordo. I'm sure the Chamber of Commerce will want you as a spokesperson.

I will miss Tex-Mex if I move to NM myself.

I have to agree. At one time I liked Si Senor for their menu - back when they had people making the tortillas and you could see the preparation / freshness. Nowadays MOST restaurants - not just in Alamo - rely on pre-packaged food deliveries from the big food service companies. Most of those deliver daily out of Albq. So what you get depends on the "quality level" the restaurant buys from the food service and their individuality in presenting it differently from the restaurant down the street.
