THE BIG EVENT - Get your ducks in a row: COMING AUGUST 21ST
On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible in totality within a band across the entire contiguous United States.
If you live in Albuquerque, you won't see the whole enchilada, but it's also not exactly "pepitas pequenas" either:
The eclipse will peak at 11:45:12 am MDT, when the moon obscures 73.5% of the sun.
If you want to see the full eclipse, you need to head NE about 480 miles.

Carne asada means “grilled meat,” which in turn can mean a lot. But skirt steak is what you most often see made into carne asada (and in some supermarkets, skirt steak is called carne asada). Because of its high fat content, it’s perfect for tacos. Rub it with a few spices, grill it for a few minutes and pile it into tortillas with a couple of other ingredients. Dinner in a flash.
The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate--Discoveries from a Secret World
"Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland."
After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.
