Bob is my business partner's father in law. Very nice and deeply religious man. We go on and on for hours about faith.

I lived up there for about two years. The ride from Los Alamos to Jemez Springs thru the Jemez caldera (Valle Grande) is spectacular. If you drive through the caldera on Rt 4 from Los Alamos to Jemez Springs, just as you exit from the caldera, look for a Santa Fe National Forest hiking trail on your right. It will take you into all kinds of cool stuff, water falls, rock formations, and spectacular views from the volcano down into the Rio Grande Valley, it's an easy hike.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I was there in the late eighties/early nineties, but it was pretty much the same - wild nights at the local pubs and easy women. Did you ever hit the bar over by the Los Alamos golf course? That was one rocking place back then, went by there a year or so ago and it was gone, but the rustic bar in Jemez Springs was still there, it looked like it hadn't changed a bit. I still go back there every other year or so, and we have actually been looking at property in the Jemez for later retirement, it's a bargain right now.

I'm surprised the Bandelero National Monument isn't better known, the place blows my mind - it's as if the ancient Indians just got up one day and walked out and left everything the way it was, the preservation is utterly remarkable. You could spend a lifetime just hiking out there.

I was out there on a two year contract at the lab, after it was over I tried like crazy to find some kind of work there so I could stay, life would have turned out much different if I had been successful. The only I/T jobs were with ski resorts, which are notorious for lay-offs, so I ended up heading back to Texas, but I still think it was and still is one of the best places in the US to live.
