    We were in Marfa earlier this week; just a word of warning if you're planning to visit during the summer: pretty much everything's closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (with some businesses managing to survive on just Thursday to Saturday opening).

    The El Paisano Hotel is recommended: it's where the cast stayed when they filmed Giant. We had the relatively modest room James Dean stayed in (he didn't become a major star until after his death).

    So, where are you today? (Peter and Carole are on one of their yearly epic road trips....)

    Hi Mark, currently in Alamogordo, site of White Sands National Monument (breathtaking stuff), home of Holloman AFB (stealth fighters) and, this weekend, location of Otero County Fair and Rodeo. So what are "we" doing as I type? Catching up on laundry in Holiday Inn Express.
