Cool No Techies?

I detect a strong dislike of the boys across the big asphalt ditch from the Varsity. I mean they are a Georgia team after all. Short story, the old f$rt$ here may recall one year (pre BCS BS) when...

Two Cents

My two cents on the topic is to try on both, with your waders or at least the shop neoprene booties and walk around a little just like when you buy regular shoes. Your feet will tell you which ones...

Cool Size & Age

Given the size I will assume a young fish. The coloration could be the result of this being a teenage punk bass, or maybe early Halloween costume?

But yes, very unusual coloration!

Sports vs $$$$

Get serious folks, at the NFL level it's all about the money for coaches, owners, doctors* and players. There is no heart here and no sentiment. It's just the money. Yes there are exceptions, like...

Dining

NM has some great tex-mex food with a more western flair than you would find in the east, and a great blending in of some native American foods as well. However, know your colors! In most of the...

New Mexico

If you go to that area, I recommend staying in Taos and then just do a day trip to Santa Fe. Taos still feels like a western town. Santa Fe has gotten a little too Hollywood for my tastes.
