Rifle Cleaning & Oiling Day

Since I had nothing to do today until I have to take Larry Lucier into Gallup for his weekly physical therapy, I figured it was a good time to clean and oil my rifles.

First, I did the Manton shotgun and then the Winchester 94 and Ruger 10/22.  

Maybe next week I'll clean and oil my handguns.

Love the smell of Hoppe's No. 9 in the morning. Smells of...victory.

Poll Shows Democrats In Trouble In New Mexico


This year's midterm election polls have bolstered the sprits of Republicans, which is incredible for a blue state like New Mexico. The races for governor and attorney general are virtually statistical ties.

No matter how one slices it, the Democrats are in trouble, especially in the gubernatorial and attorney general races. They should be running away with the voters. One should note that attorney general Democrat nominee Raúl Torrez is George Soros-funded.

According to Piñon Post:

According to a new Cygnal poll, Republican attorney general nominee Jeremy Gay is tied with Democrat nominee Raúl Torrez. The poll shows Gay at 41.4 percent while Torrez had 42 percent. 16.6 percent of voters were undecided.

The polling company wrote, “The environment in New Mexico provides a key opportunity for Republicans to win in November: the generic congressional ballot is tied (Republican 46.9% – Democrat 46.6%) and incumbent Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is struggling below the 50% threshold, sputtering at 46.2% while Republican challenger Mark Ronchetti hits 44.4%, and Libertarian candidate Karen Bedonie notches 4.5%, with 4.9% undecided.”

James Bond Day Celebrating 60 Years of 007


Today marks 60 years since Dr. No, starring Sean Connery, premiered on October 5, 1962. Each October 5, it is James Bond Day around the world.

I first viewed Dr. No a year or so later on a double bill with From Russia With Love with my parents and have been hooked ever since.

From 7HOFM (Australia):

Bond. James Bond.

He’s the most famous spy in the world who really needs no introduction, but we couldn’t resist including that famous line.

And October 5 every year is Global James Bond Day to show our love for 007!

The date of James Bond Day comes from the World Premiere of the first James Bond film, Dr No, in 1962, in which Sean Connery played 007.

60 years of Bond

This year marks the 60th anniversary of James Bond franchise, and a fabulous highlights video was played at this year’s Academy Awards to celebrate.

It’s a terrific reminder of what makes James Bond so enthralling after so many decades and was a particularly wonderful tribute for Bond actors Sean Connery who died in 2020 and Roger Moore who died in 2017.

By the way, the "Bond. James Bond" line was not in the original Dr. No script. Sean Connery came up with it.

Why Hawaii Has Cheapest Airfares In The U.S.

Above, new arrivals disembarking at Kona International Airport. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

At one time, Hawaiian Airlines was the "Big Kahuna" when it came to flights to Hawaii. Not anymore. Other airlines have entered the Hawaii travel market and competing for market share.

Now there's a price war between the airlines serving Hawaii and travelers are the beneficiaries.

Now, Hawaii has the cheapest airfares in the U.S.

Beat of Hawaii reported:

It seems odd to us that Hawaii would have that distinction. After all, Hawaii is usually more expensive in every way when compared with the mainland. But not when it comes to airfares, at least not for now.

Another fare war was started today by Southwest Airlines, still a relative newcomer to the Hawaii market. The deals are both from the mainland to Hawaii and interisland too. They were quickly joined by Hawaiian Airlines and by Alaska Airlines.

So why are we seeing the cheapest airfares in the US?

By their admitted nature, Southwest is acting aggressively relative to the other airlines and moving in on their rival’s territory with low prices. Southwest continues to look for whatever opportunities exist to expand and dominate Hawaii flights. As mentioned previously, the pilot head of SWAPA (Southwest’s pilots’ union) has described the airline’s expansion strategy this way: “Predatory and opportunistic—which we like.” In fact, there is a photo of a shark labeled “Southwest” which sits in one of the company’s offices.

Now Is The Time To Visit Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

Above, the Mittens and Merrick Butte. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Right now is a good time to pay a visit to the famous Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park that straddles the border of Arizona and Utah.

Monument Valley was made famous by director John Ford and actor John Wayne beginning with Stagecoach (1939). 

From the Goulding's Lodge website:

When the Great Depression hit in the 1930s, the Navajo Reservation suffered immensely. Harry heard of a movie production company scouting out locations in the Southwest to use in films. He believed that bringing movie production to Monument Valley would help the local Navajos with much-needed income.

So Harry and Mike set out on a journey to Hollywood, California with their last $60. By luck and perseverance, Harry met the famous director John Ford. When Ford saw Harry’s photos of Monument Valley, he knew it was the perfect location for his next movie. The Gouldings received an advanced payment, and in a few days, John Ford and his crew began filming Stagecoach starring John Wayne.

Above, yours truly bundled up during the van tour.

The temperature during the day is in the 70s and the nighttime temperature is in the 40s. I went in November 2016 and the daytime temperature was rather brisk with nighttime temperatures dipping down into the 20s. 

Above, the Goulding's Tours tour van in 2016. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

There are numerous places to see in the tribal park and there are tours available to see them. Tripadvisor has posted a list of the ten best Monument Valley tours and excursions. I took a van tour from Goulding's Lodge (they do pick up passengers at the campground). To access their list, go here.

Along with tours, there are several places to stay in the Monument Valley vicinity. They include hotels and campgrounds. I stayed at Goulding's Lodge Campground in 2016. Tripadvisor lists them here.

Since the best time to visit Monument Valley is in September-October, I am going there next week.

Those who are familiar with the ways of Japan know that it is a country big on etiquette. This is the way the people live and foreign visitors would do well if they know the dos and don'ts while there.

With the country set to reopen to foreign tourists on October 11, it is advisable to know Japan's COVID-19 etiquette before they arrive.

Time Out has posted the most important things to know.

They begin with:

With Japan finally reopening to the world on October 11, anticipation is running high. While there’s a lot to be excited about, it's good to be aware of the situation to help you have the smoothest trip possible.

We understand that guidelines for safety vary by country, and Japan still has a few anti-virus measures in place. So here are some of the important Covid-19 etiquette tips to know about when visiting Japan.

Criminals Kill 2 Business Owners In Los Angeles

When I was in Los Angeles two weekends ago, I saw first hand how the criminal element is destroying businesses and the overall quality of life there. I was there for a class reunion. The Democrats and their soft-on-crime policies have made California a shithole. 

I was born in Los Angeles and lived there all my life until four and a half years ago when I moved to New Mexico. But I was really happy to head back home to New Mexico. 

Actor James Woods posted the following today:


Yes, I thank my lucky stars I got out when I did.

How To Winterize An RV


Above, my motorhome is nicely stored during winter in its own garage. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

We're now in autumn, that means cooler temperatures during the day and, especially, at night.

If the motorhome or trailer is not going to be used in the upcoming weeks, now's the time to prepare it for winter. Where I live, it gets down to freezing (32°) or below freezing even autumn. I store my motorhome in its own garage, which offers some protection.

I keep a space heater inside the RV and one to heat the garage's interior. I drain the tanks and put anti-freeze in them and down the drains. I also use the tank heaters when it really gets cold. This has worked for me for the past three years without any problems.

But someone reading this may not have a garage to store their trailer or motorhome and could be new to RVing. Therefore, an article on how to winterize an RV in 8 easy steps by RV Travel will be a great aid in steering them in the right direction.

They start with:

If you’re the proud owner of a motorhome or trailer, you should know how to winterize an RV. Even if you live in a warm area, you never know when you might move or store your vehicle in a colder area. Winterizing your RV will keep it in good shape until you want to use it again, plus it’s a good time to do some general checkups and RV maintenance. 

Although it might sound daunting to get your RV ready for winter, it’s not as tricky as it sounds. There are a few things you need to do, but you probably have most of the supplies on hand already! The main thing you need to do is just follow along with a checklist and ensure that everything is clean, dry, and in good shape for the winter.

Below we have eight steps you can follow to winterize an RV. There are a lot of smaller things you can do, but these steps are the main ones you’ll want to do, especially if you plan to store your RV outside. If you opt for an indoor storage solution, you won’t have to do all the steps below, but it’s still good to keep them in mind.

Don't Jump Off The Cliff With The Flag Flying



People who get butt-hurt over primary election results when their favored candidate doesn't win and then vote for someone with a snowball's chance in hell of winning in the general election are stupid. 

Case in point: there are those who feel Mark Ronchetti, the GOP gubernatorial nominee in New Mexico, is a RINO and does not deserve their support. Granted, Ronchetti was not my first choice, but he is the nominee and has the ONLY chance of kicking Michelle Lujan Grisham out of office. (If it makes you feel better, hold your nose while voting for him!)

Some are preferring to vote instead for Karen Bedonie. But she is only registering 6% in the polls. She may be more ideal to your way of thinking, but is it smart to subject everyone to another four years of Lujan Grisham? Then we'll end up with radical polices of the kind California's Gavin Newsom has subjected Californians to, turning the state into a shithole. Ronchetti may not be perfect (who is?), but he's our only chance.

If you think Lujan Grisham was bad in her first term, a second term would be worse. Already, the Democrats in New Mexico are salivating that if they retain the governorship and majorities in the legislature, they will hike taxes on New Mexicans. They are trying to force people into electric cars. They are trying to destroy the oil and gas industry. They are after our gun rights! Ronchetti has the NRA's highest rating! 

If she wins re-election, you can only blame yourself for not voting for Ronchetti and have no business bitching and whining when things turn to crap! 

Don't jump off the cliff with the flag flying!

When You Vote, Remember...


 

New Mexico Shooting Sports Association Backs Ronchetti

The New Mexico Shooting Sports Association backs Mark Ronchetti.

From an email I received this morning:

Mark Ronchetti lives in Albuquerque, where he and his wife, Krysty, are raising two young daughters. A proud New Mexican, Mark, and Krysty want their children to be able to chase and realize their boldest dreams – right here, at home. Krysty is a small business owner, and the two of them have seen first-hand how the challenging business climate in New Mexico holds the state back. As parents to two daughters, they’ve also seen the flawed education system and the non-existent mental health support and how it’s failing kids in New Mexico.
One of five children himself, Mark was raised by two loving parents. His father is a first-generation American who becameMeet Man electrical engineer, and his grandfather came to the United States from Italy in the 1920’s unable to read or write. Throughout Mark’s childhood, his family impressed upon him that the promise of the American Dream is what makes the United States a truly great and unique country. Following the news was important, and there was no shortage of political conversations and disagreements around their (often loud) Italian family’s dinner table.
He learned – and still believes – that America offers extraordinary opportunities to anyone who works hard in pursuit of their dreams and affords each generation the chance to make life better for the next one… just as his parents and grandparents had done for him and his brothers and sisters.  
Mark graduated from Washington State University in 1996. After a stint working at a television station in Colorado, he moved to New Mexico in 1998 to work for a local station in Albuquerque. He became a certified meteorologist and became the Chief Meteorologist for Albuquerque’s CBS and FOX affiliates. Mark has had a successful career and has enjoyed the opportunity and privilege to talk with viewers across the state each night. 
Like many, Mark believes that elected leaders in New Mexico too often put politics ahead of the people they represent. Mark is running for Governor because he believes the people of New Mexico are ready for change. Mediocrity is no longer an option. For too long, the leaders in this state haven’t taken crime seriously. Mark will ensure a justice system that works and prioritizes law-abiding citizens over criminals. He will give police officers every tool they need to keep the people of New Mexico safe.
Mark will dedicate the resources necessary to secure New Mexico’s southern border from human trafficking, the drug trade, and gangs. Additionally, he will focus on lifting up our small business community and making New Mexico a more attractive destination for out-of-state companies looking to relocate. Mark promises to make real education reform happen by focusing on core subjects, rewarding good teachers, more school choices and opportunities for parents, and additional money directly into the classroom.
New Mexico spends almost $2 billion more dollars annually than it did when Governor Grisham took office. But what do we have to show for it? Are New Mexicans any better off today? Mark is tired of the excuses and the business as usual from Santa Fe politicians who worry more about power than doing what’s right for the people.

Mark is ready to bring new leadership to New Mexico. Mark is a conservative who believes that taxes should be low and 2nd amendment rights should be protected. As a proud political outsider, he says New Mexico deserves a governor who has not been part of the self-dealing culture in Santa Fe that only seems to benefit the powerful few while leaving the rest of the state behind. As Governor, he will work hard to represent all New Mexicans.
Mark grew up with strong Catholic faith, he is pro-life, and his family attends Sagebrush Church in Albuquerque. He says his faith is the indispensable foundation of his life.

Mark and his family enjoy spending time in the beautiful New Mexico outdoors. They like to hike, bike, camp, and ski, and their two huskies, Maverick and Scout, are never far behind.

As our next Governor, Mark will take his pragmatic outsider perspective to Santa Fe and always prioritize the future of New Mexico families – and the protection of the American Dream for every child – above all else.

Classic Rock Music Monday

The stuff that now passes as "music", particularly rock 'n roll, leaves me cold. So, to start off the week, here's a video of a classic rock artist.

To start off the first week of October, here is Black Sabbath with their song "Paranoid". 

According to Wikipedia:

Black Sabbath were an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1968 by guitarist Tony Iommi, drummer Bill Ward, bassist Geezer Butler and vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. They are often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music. The band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath, Paranoid and Master of Reality

Only Book A Flight For The Early Morning

Above, it was nice and quiet at the Albuquerque Sunport before my departure. Photo by Armand Vaquer.


When I took my recent trip to Los Angeles for the Hawthorne High School 50ish Class Reunion, the flight I booked from the Albuquerque Sunport to LAX was scheduled for 6:00 in the morning. The return flight was scheduled for 8:00 in the morning.

It wasn't for the reasons given in the following article from Travel + Leisure, they were just what was available and at the best price. I'm an early riser anyway. I stayed the night before at the Route 66 RV Resort.

However, according to Travel + Leisure, there are some significant benefits for taking early morning flights. 

They begin with:
Waking up before dawn isn't everyone's cup of tea, but we're here to tell you that it is indeed worth it if you're flying. That's because booking the first flight of the day comes with some significant benefits.

Although it may be annoying to miss out on precious sleep time, the earlier you get to the airport, the smoother your experience will be.

DeSantis Warns Looters "We're A Second Amendment State"


 


Leftists are having fits over a press conference by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis when he warned people thinking about taking advantage of the Hurricane Ian disaster to loot homes and businesses.

Some leftists are screaming "racism" over the governor's warning. 

From the Daily Caller:

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a stern warning during a Friday press conference in Fort Myers to would-be looters in the wake of Hurricane Ian.

“I can tell you in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home,” the governor cautioned, according to Fox News.

“And I would not want to chance that if I were you — given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”

More Silver

Since inflation is showing no signs of abating, I decided to get a 2022 $1.00 American Silver Eagle.

I checked different dealers and found one with the lowest price. It pays to shop around.

Silver is much more affordable than gold at $19.08/ounce.

This is what the coin looks like:

In the market to buy a new motorhome?

Now just may be the time to head out to a dealer and make the deal. Why? (You may ask.) It is because prices are dropping. 

According to RV Travel, motorhome wholesale prices dropped 13% in August alone.

They begin their article with:

The Black Book wholesale price survey of RVs for August showed an astonishing motorhome price drop. As they passed under the gavel, motorized unit prices fell 13.3% compared to July 2022 figures. Towables, which had already been on a decline, fell 3.2%. What does the motorhome price drop signify? Before we get to analysis, let’s zero in more on the stats.

Best Places In Japan To Visit Before The Swarms Arrive

Above, the stage of Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

In nine more days, Japan will open up to international tourists.

Independent foreign visitors will be able to enter Japan without need of a tour guide or travel agency. Just like it was before the pandemic.

Demand is already surging and it looks like hordes of visitors will be coming. What are the best places to visit before the swarms of visitors arrive? Bloomberg has listed some of them.

They begin with:

After almost three years of Covid-induced border closures, Japan is finally opening up to vaccinated tourists from most countries, with no need for quarantine, PCR tests or visas. And with the yen making hotels, restaurants and shopping more affordable, demand is sure to be high.

Airlines are ramping up flights and businesses are getting to receive visitors from Oct. 11. Even so, it will probably be a while before crowds return, especially with China restricting travel.

With that in mind, here’s are some of the top spots to visit in Japan while the country is still relatively empty, as curated by Bloomberg Tokyo’s newsroom:

Kyoto Facing The Return of Tourists

Above, Kyoto's famous Kinkaku-ji "Golden Pavilion" in 2015. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

In the years just prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Japanese city of Kyoto were suffering overtourism of too many tourists, some of them ill-mannered. The businesses loved the revenue the generated, just didn't particularly like the tourists.

I was last in Kyoto in 2015 and from what I saw of the numbers of tourists, I understood how the residents felt. We visited with an organized bus tour company.

Then the pandemic hit and Japan closed its borders to foreign tourists. The country will fully reopen October 11. Many in Kyoto are happy this will be happening, but with some reservations.

Above, the Kyoto tour group photo at Kiyomizu-dera in 2015.

TODAY posted an article on Kyoto and what they are and aren't looking forward to when the country reopens.

They start it off with:

TOKYO — In the months before March 2020, the food sellers in Kyoto’s Nishiki market often wished for an end to the seemingly endless stream of photo-hungry visitors from abroad who always seemed to be underfoot.

“We weren’t used to foreign tourists,” said Mr Nobuyuki Hatsuda, who leads a business alliance promoting the shopping street in the city centre, where vendors sell a dizzying array of traditional Japanese foods, carefully displayed and attractively packaged.

Nishiki has long been a working market, and the parade of visitors — rifling through the meticulously arranged merchandise, haggling with frazzled shopkeepers and blocking storefronts with their luggage — interfered with the flow of daily business, driving away locals who had long done their shopping on the street.

But then the pandemic hit. The tourists — along with their money — evaporated, and sellers had a change of heart, said Mr Hatsuda, who sells kamaboko, a fish cake often formed into delicate pink and white loaves.

“We realised that we can’t choose our customers,” he said. Other than China, Japan had maintained the strictest border controls of any major economy. Since the start of 2021, fewer than 800,000 foreign visitors have set foot in the country. As other countries began welcoming tourists back in numbers close to their pre-pandemic highs, Japan let only a trickle of travellers in.

The country eased restrictions on trips for business and study in the spring, but as of September, it was still limiting tourism to travelers on package tours who were willing to negotiate a labyrinth of red tape.

That will soon change, however. Prime minister Fumio Kishida said last week that the country would further ease border controls in October, eliminating a cap on daily entries and allowing tourists to travel independently. (Even after normal travel resumes, however, Chinese visitors, who accounted for more than 30 per cent of inbound traffic in 2019, are unlikely to return in large numbers until Beijing relaxes its strict Covid-zero policy.)  

As tourism slowly returns, Kyoto, like other famous tourist destinations worldwide, is grappling with how to accommodate the crowds without sacrificing quality of life for those who call the ancient capital home.

Federal Aid To Hurricane Victims Must Be Treated Equally

Her Fraudulency Kamala Harris may have proclaimed something that is likely unconstitutional and, therefore, illegal.

Actor James Woods tweeted on Twitter the following:

Fortunately victims of Hurricane Ian of ALL races will be protected from Vice President Harris’s proclamation to the contrary. This decision by a federal appeals court versus Biden’s race discrimination scheme during the pandemic clinches it. 


And thank you, Governor DeSantis.


And, Woods also tweeted:

The government may not “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” - 14th Amendment, Constitution of the United States of America

 

Cattle Drive

A little while a go, I took a drive to Six Mile Canyon/Cibola National Forest.

Along the way, I spotted several cows near the perimeter fence that borders the national forest near the old corral. It is usually about this time the cattle congregate in this area just prior to being corralled and shipped. 

I drove along the fence and some cows were in the middle of the road. I figured this was a good photo opportunity and took a few photos.
