A dinner party happened. We have five chairs and five sat down at the table. I got the pinto beans cooking early in the day because beans from dried take a long time. Nod did calabacitas and cornbread and everything came out well. Stellar guests brought a big salad and pie which made it fully festive. We still have the dinner table in front of the picture window but I'm lobbying for relocation.  

A creative and determined person: A Simple Exercise to Strengthen the Lower Esophageal Sphincter and Eliminate Gastroesophageal Reflux: An Autobiographical Case Report. Shared by Slime Mold Time Mold. He figured out how to exercise the lower esophageal valve muscles in order to get rid of his reflux. Kneeling and putting your forehead on the floor before swallowing sounds very awkward. But I'm sure practice makes perfect. More than six months of daily practice got rid of the acid and allowed him to sleep flat again. 

Found and lost and found again (thanks Metafilter!) the English Historical Fiction Authors blog gives wonderful topics, tidbits and enthusiasm. 

I'm collecting events calendars to try and find out what's going on in the city. 

ABQ: KiMo, Popejoy, Vortex, Guild, Expo and other fairgrounds bldgs, 

Santa Fe: Lensic, Railyard

ABQ and NM hikes, great site by an old archeologist:

Planning to go to the star watch night at the Valles Caldera in a couple of weeks. I'm really excited about that. Hope for a clear sky.
