I'll be the first to admit that eating from a restaurant on wheels has always been a little daunting to me. The history of 'roach coaches' isn't one that is steeped in Michelin Stars and James Beard awards. I've seen more of my fair share of scarey-mobiles. All that changed when I moved to Tucso...

I still don't know who it was or what they wanted even after listening to it 10 times. I was able to pick out something about a house on the northeast side of town. They le...
Last Saturday, in the middle of a major monsoon storm, the Tierra Antigua Realty's Downtown office went across the street to welcome our new neighbors, The University of Arizona! We've been watching the rehabilitation for a while and were anxious to see the end result. First, a little history of...
I started my journey in the Rain on August 12, 2010 with this post. I was new to real estate and new to blogging. I had NO idea on what I was doing or how to do it. Thankfully, there were some awesome folks here that helped me along, pointed me in the right direction to learn and read and impl...
A couple of days ago, I blogged about the wonderful aroma of green chiles roasting and how it signaled the start of fall in Las Cruces, NM. A comment by Ed Kurosz got me to thinking. He asked "What do green chiles taste like?" I couldn't think of an answer. How do I describe the most wonderful t...
