For two years, we went with college kids to the Gila National Forest to do trail construction. We worked on the Continental Divide Trail which goes from Mexico to Canada. It was a great way to spend a few days of work advising students. We hauled a lot of flat rocks to build the trail. […]

Emil’s coworker ended up having to go out of state for family stuff. So, Emil has to work at least part of the day on Thursday. The bank (where we’d get the notary and another witness, and where there is a safe deposit box for the Will) is closed on Good Friday. So, we’ll have to make the […]
Happy 14th Anniversary to us! I say it all the time and still mean it…every day really is better than the last. We celebrated a little on Saturday with a trip to Shoal Creek Saloon for crawfish (for me) and pork chops (for E). Tonight, we’re going to get more rocks and then for tacos […]

A few years ago, Living Wage (here’s Austin’s) was all the rage; at least it was in my sociopolitical circles. I considered it worthy to hope for, but quite unlikely to ever materialize. Today, I was smacked in the face with why it’s so damn important. Real Life Example #1 I’ve been job hunting. Ideally, […]
