Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of JulyFireworks can be really fun to watch but they can also be really scary.

One time when my kids were little, they didn’t quite shoot the fireworks high enough and the hot embers were falling into the crowd. Some people in the crowd got burned pretty severely.  Luckily, we were not in the way of the embers and walked away fine.   

Amy Biehl High School

Amy Biehl High School

“Amy Biehl has created a culture where students are not afraid to take educational risks.” – Finnie Coleman, Dean of University College, University of New Mexico

Amy Biehl High School transforms young people from all walks of life into civic-minded college students while they are still in high school. (Amy Biehl HS Website)

I think we need more High Schools like this. This sculpture is outside of The High School. It is named A Monument to Patriotism and it was designed by Tara Jo McDonough who graduated from Amy Biehl High School in 2009.

Cliff’s Amusement Park

Cliff's Amusement Park

There is an amusement park in Albuquerque called Cliff’s Amusement Park. It is a fun place for kids and adults. I know some folk’s who have had work related functions at Cliff’s and these functions were huge successes.  These three rides are The New Mexico Rattler, which was voted one of the top 25 wooden coasters in the world.   The Super Fire Ball is the big round circle and the large phallic looking thing in the background is The Cliff Hanger.

Independence Day

Happy 4th!!

Tomorrow is July 4th. Happy 4th to all who celebrate it.

I used a tripod and a remote to take this. Once the shot was set up I didn’t want to have to touch the camera again!

My grandfather was born on July 4th in 1905. If he were alive he would be 103.

The Flag

The Flag

This is the first decent photo I have ever taken of the flag flying in the wind. Usually it comes out blurry or there is no wind and it is hanging limp!
