"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Life in New Mexico

is simple and actually offers both hope and joy!

is surprising.

is not for those in a hurry, sometimes you must slow down or even stop.


allows you to know what this gizmo is and what it does.*

is breathtaking even on the coldest of winter days.


is not only about mason jar vases, but is practically standard 
for flower arrangement 101.


is about beauty, with a bit of country all mixed up in 
with a bit from her mom and a bit from her dad.

*the gizmo is a chile roaster for roasted green chiles to freeze for year round use.
