Tucson Stargazing Fans ~

Tucson is home to many observatories and there are many amateur astronomy groups in town that host star gazing events throughout the year. Here it looks like these homeowners are celebrating Kitt Peak Observatory on their property wall.

A Tucson Treasure since 1922!

El Charro has been family run since 1922 and is one of Tucson's most popular Mexican restaurants. The spinach enchiladas are muy bueno! Personally, I only like the original location - the one downtown on Court Street - although there are a few branches elsewhere in town. For me, the new ones just can't duplicate the atmosphere.

Cookie conga line ~ the chocolate dance!


Has it really been 5 years since the DoubleTree Hotel cookie van was in town? Here's the post from July 21, 2011. 

Who wouldn't do the happy dance for a delicious DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie? To celebrate 25 years of cookie baking, the DoubleTree cookie van & the cookie line dancers distributed free cookies at the main library on Stone on Wednesday morning. Yum~

Always Good Advice ~

There is probably a correlation between the number of road rage episodes and the temperature. We are stuck in the triple digits right now so "Simmer Down" is definitely good advice. Come on, monsoons! Cool us down!
