  1. It’s nice that we in New Mexico get to share this record in a vicarious way.

    We seem to be close to the bottom in so many other standings.

    Thanks for the great visual of some of New Mexico.

  2. I bet old Felix would be a riot to have at a dinner party. Just wait till the subject of the horrors of commuting came up.
    ‘So Felix, how do you get to work?’
    ‘Helium balloon for the first 23 miles, then I jump.’
    That would be a conversation stopper.

  3. wonderful post, very informative. I ponder why
    the opposite specialists of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m
    sure, you have a great readers’ base already!

  4. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website. It seems like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Appreciate it
