    We gave up the excitement of the city for the family environment of historic New Mexico. The emphasis is on family here. While New Mexico is primarily Mexican-American, it is an integrated community of people who enjoy a slower pace of life.

    Many forget that New Mexico was the home of Billy the Kid. Today the capitol of New Mexico is affluent Santa Fe up near the luxury ski resort of Taos. The Sandia Mountains of Northeast Albuquerque are predominently upper income. New Mexico is no longer as portrayed in old westerns. One side of my family came to Virginia in the 18 century, the other side to St. Louis in the 1880s.

    Nice try but we will not let you into the country until:

    1. You learn to speak English
    2. You fix your rampant Drug Lord problem

    I've been here for three years now and haven't seen anyone wearing one.

    Now, they all do drive like shit... And I learned to drive in California, so if I think they drive like shit...

    Just sayin'...

    I've driven through New Mexico a few times. Seems like time stopped. I expected to see dinos crossing the road at any time. Welcome to the board. Hope you enjoy it here.
