This empty, tiny bird’s nest was found while we were harvesting grapes at the Ranch.
I thought at first it was a hummingbird’s nest, but theirs are smaller and much neater.
So it must’ve belonged to a house wren. Thought you’d like to see it!

Only one?

There’s only one chile pepper museum in the entire world that I can find and it’s in Maieraˋ, Italy: “Museo del Pepperoncino.”

Much as I like Italian food, we really do need a chile museum here in America. Crowd funding, anyone?

Chili and chocolate at the museum! Bueno!


“I grew up in New Mexico, and the older I get, I have less need for contemporary culture and big cities and all the stuff we are bombarded with. I am happier at my ranch in the middle of nowhere watching a bug carry leaves across the grass, listening to silence, riding my horse, and being in open space.”
