Welcome to my blog

I used to think of the desert as a hot, dry and downright miserable place to live. That is, until I moved here from the cool, wet coastal towns of Southern California about four years ago.

Yes, we have HOT days here. It was 125.3 degrees on July 10. (Gotta put that .3 degrees in there.) And it's downright miserable if you are unprepared for the extreme weather.

But learning to have a healthy respect for this environment has its pluses: sunny most of the year, excellent air quality, low humidity, beautiful desert plants and animals, and a sense of peace and serenity not found in the city jungles.

So, if you're looking for eclectic thoughts, on sustainable living, food, health, economy, musings on desert life, with a few rants thrown in for good measure, you've come to the right place. Come back often to refresh your batteries for thoughts from the desert...
