On Christmas Day, I took a quick evening trip to show some family visiting from out of town one of Imperial Valley's most famous landmarks: Salvation Mountain.
One year after Leonard Knight moved away to a nursing home, Salvation Mountain is surprisingly still in good shape. It appears a caretaker is living onsite in a mobile trailer and I did witness a couple of people pull up in a tiny car and pick up the day's donations. This was comforting to see.
The following is a collection of discussion posts from 2003 where Calecia.com members engaged in a little social experiment to list all things that would classify a Calexican as "Old School Calecia." The result turned out to be a fun activity and became a brief Calexico history lesson with facts, trivia, humor and competition amongst friends.
"Calecia.com is proud to present for the first time ever in the fine city of Calexico, the band Calexico. Performing in this benefit concert to promote border crossing death awareness and prevention, Calexico will be accompanied by Mariachi Luz de Luna."
I recently realized Time Warner Cable started charging a $3.95 monthly modem rental fee. My first charge appeared in my November 2012 statement. No bueno, but what is bueno is they've upgraded all 10Mbps plans to 15Mbps and their Internet service is now surprisingly reliable. So I went ahead and ordered my own cable modem. In less than a year I'll start saving money, which reminds me it's around that time to find a new Internet promo deal.
