Just in case you haven’t heard there is a ‘super-bloom’ for wildflowers going on right now out in our western deserts.

Strap in and buckle up, it’s going to get bumpy! For the last few years it has become popular to say when someone is celebrating a significant birthday that “50 is the new 40” or “60 is the new 50.” Have  you ever noticed who was saying this nonsense? It is not 60 or 70 […]
