The APS School Board has decided to postpone until March 1st, any decision on continuing the 'cheese sandwich' policy for students whose parents do not cough up the dough to pay for their school lunch.

See the video below.

I get a kick out of seeing school kids with placards [especially the one dressed as a milk carton LOLOL] protesting a 'cheese sandwich' for lunch. Since when is getting a free meal in the first place PUNISHMENT???!!!!

They should be protesting their parents for not FEEDING THEM!!!!

And just who exactly sat around on their arse watching this debt grow to $140,000??!!! Shouldn't a red light have gone off at, oh.... $10,000? or $50,000???

I'm out.

I've noticed the light outside beginning to change and birds have begun to return. It's put me in an Edward Hopper kind of mood. The above photo is one of my own favorites. Although I did not consciously have Hopper in mind when I took this picture [he primarily worked with oil and color] I find I have always thought about angles and light as are apparent in his paintings.

We are still in the middle of winter and January and February can be our coldest months but I'm hoping for an early spring.

It's been slow going on adventures in the southwest, still a bit cold to get out; however a major road trip this spring is in the planning stages. Stay tuned...until then tune into this:

I'm out.

I told you guys when he was announced for the position of Commerce Secretary he was shady. Shady just seems to be following Obamarama around doesn't it.

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, 61 has withdrawn his name from consideration as commerce secretary under future Prez Barack Obamarama. He cites an on-going investigation about business dealings in New Mexico [can you say Manny Aragon]?

A Grand Jury in New Mexico is currently looking into charges of "pay-to-play" in the awarding of a state contract to a company that contributed to Richardson.

Richardson has said, "Let me say unequivocally that I and my administration have acted properly in all matters...blah blah blah blah..."

Richardson has said he will remain New Mexico Governor for now, which means Diane Denish will not be the first female governor of NM.

You know she's pissed.

I'm out.

Congratulations are in order for the team that put New Mexico's Rose Bowl Parade float, 'HATS OFF NEW MEXICO BEEP BEEP!' together and won the Bob Hope Humor Award for "most comical and amusing".

This years float had Wiley E Coyote chasing Road Runner along Route 66.

This is the second straight year the Land of Enchanments float entry has won a major award.

The float was designed by award-winning float designer Raul Rodriguez and built by Fiesta Parade Floats of Pasadena, CA under contract with the NM Tourism Department.

Two of the riders on the float were the daughter and grandson of Chuck Jones, animation genius behind the characters.

Last years float, PASSPORT TO OUR WORLD AND BEYOND, featured an alien family visiting New Mexico in their spaceship. It went on to win the Grand Marshals Trophy for excellence in creative concept and design.

Great job everyone!! Here's to next year!.
