“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, pitch manure, cook a meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly…specialization is for insects.” – Robert Heinlein
I have always tried to look beyond what I was expected to be to what I wanted to be.  If something interested me, I jumped in with both feet – I still do.  Because of this I have been able to achieve expertise in several diverse occupations.  The articles and books I write pass on this knowledge and experience to those who also seek to become all they are destined to be.




Solar Cooking

Bernalillo County Extension Office  – Albuquerque, New Mexico

With an average of only 5 totally overcast days per year, New Mexico is the perfect place for
solar cooking. Solar Cooking can be performed in a variety of ways and with a variety
of objects, many of which you already have at home, or you can use a professionally constructed appliance.  Rose Marie Kern will be giving a presentation on the history of solar cooking and the many options available.  Participants can taste solar cooked Potato Sausage Soup, Focacia, and a Chicken & Rice Casserole!
