Is Matt Demon coming?
I used to have friends in the area. When I would come over to their place (I lived 300 miles away) and stay for a day or two, they would always say, “Remember, don’t smoke in the shower.” They were kidding, but only slightly.
Well worth your while to watch a brillant documentary this Saturday Feb 2nd on AXS cable channel. Titled “FRACKNATION”. Good to have factual information.
Good thing Bill Richardson isn’t still governor. He’d order the state police to shut this thing down.
Best time of my life as a child was there! Loved it, still go back every chance I get! I still consider it my real “home”.
Unfortunately my worthless brother-in-law (If you know him he probably owes you money) still lives there so I keep a 1000 mile distance between us.
Loved the place, the people and the surrounding area.
Loved the mole at Margarita Restaurant.
Panned and found some gold in the Animas River.
