[quote]Ruidoso (southern NM) was packed this weekend, nearly every shop open for business, restaurants still take out only, but that is supposed to change June 1. Maybe 1/100 people wearing a mask. It felt like a normal holiday weekend, which was damn refreshing. Ruidoso is basically little Te...

re: How Do You Deal With Death? - NyCaLa
[quote]I know this is a morbid topic, but I find talking about it and discussing it with others is cathartic, at least for me. I recently lost my father and it has hit me very hard. I’ve lost quite a few loved ones in my life, and as I get older, it only gets harder to accept that they’re no longer ...

CO, NM first week of June: Restrictions? - NyCaLa
Don't know what it's like in practice. Any insight would be helpful. CO: "Guideline" is to discourage tourism. Stay within 10 miles of home. NM: Seems more restrictive. Hotels and restaurants limited to 25% capacity, mask at all times, etc....

re: Who was alive during the Manson family murders? - NyCaLa
I was. It was a huge story during a time of many big stories. It was a level of senseless, random violence that was completely new. Add to it the cult weirdness of the Manson family, Charlie himself, and the fact that several of the girls were good-lookers. Prime headline stuff....

re: Best brands of washer and dryers? - NyCaLa
I just gave the Maytag Neptune set I bought in 1998 to my b-i-l, still going strong. Some repairs in the first few years, smooth sailing since. I only gave em up because the house I just bought came with a new Maytag set. I prefer the older one. But the new one is halfway okay ...
