Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,500+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is still parked at VFW Post #8874 in Los Alamos. I expect to be here for a couple of more days.
Because of my central in-town location, yesterday I walked about five minutes to arrive at the Bradbury Science Museum. Being an ex-engineer, I found it to be a very interesting museum. Here’s their website link…
This Wikipedia link will tell you about Norris Bradbury for whom the museum is named…
From the museum brochure…
History: After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in World War II, the United States began a secret project, called the Manhattan Project, to build a new atomic weapon. The mission to build the atomic bomb brought scientists from around the world to Los Alamos. Their work would affect not only the small mesa-top town but would change the course of history.
Los Alamos National Laboratory is a scientific research laboratory focusing on National Security. The Laboratory was established in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project, the nation’s top-secret program to develop the atomic bomb.
Since 1943, the Laboratory has strengthened our national security by developing and applying the best science and technology to these three primary goals:
* Ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the U.S. nuclear deterrent;
* Reducing global threats; and
* Solving other emerging national security challenges.
The total lab area is 36 square miles. There are 47 technical areas. There are 2,000 facilities/buildings. There are 11,837 employees including students, consultants and special program guests. Of these numbers about 4,000 are scientists and engineers. The protective force is 419, other contractors 606 for a total of 12,862. The total annual budget is $2.0 billion.
Here’s the Wikipedia link that will inform you all about the Los Alamos National Laboratory…
