A recap in case you’re wondering why posting is scanty this week; I have a private class going on. Posting should be back to normal by Tuesday. I had several announcements (contests, data releases, software specials etc) I needed to post before now so I regret the delay. I appreciate your patience if you’ve written and I’ve yet to respond.
This morning we are taking a short break to visit the season opening of our local farmer’s market. Those in the big city probably think that’s silly but I’ve had it on my calender amid high anticipation for several months. We’ve been spoiled by the Las Cruces market because it is year round. It is annoying the Albuquerque markets shut for the winter months because we do much of our holiday gift shopping there. I don’t mind if you giggle that farmer’s markets are what passes for frivolity and fun in the beautiful state of New Mexico but I wouldn’t change it for the world. An aside: when my students first arrived, they wondered why I would live here. Now that they’ve been here a few days, they wonder why more people don’t.
As usual, below are the entries published on this site for this week over the past six years. Again, if you are looking for a particular entry, searching via the archives page (which lists 2,000+ entries) is probably easier than the search box.
