Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Colt .45 ran on TV from 1957-60.
Christopher Colt was apparently a gun salesman, but was, in fact, a government Agent tracking down notorious bad guys. His cousin Sam took the lead when the studio had contract disputes with the original star.

Kewa Pueblo, formerly known as Santo Domingo Pueblo, is a census-designated place in Sandoval County, New Mexico, and a federally recognized tribe of Native American Pueblo people.

The population of the pueblo is composed of Native Americans who speak Keres, an eastern dialect of the Keresan languages. Like several other pueblo peoples, they have a matrilineal kinship system, in which children are considered born into the mother's family and clan, and inheritance and property pass through the maternal line. The Pueblo celebrates an annual feast day on August 4 to honor their patron saint, Saint Dominic. More than 2,000 pueblo people participate in the traditional corn dances held at this time.[citation needed]

In the 17th century, the Spanish conquistadores named the pueblo as Santo Domingo. Its earliest recorded name was Gipuy. According to Pueblo Council members, the local name in their Keres language has always been Kewa. In 2009, the pueblo officially changed its name to Kewa Pueblo, altering its seal, signs and letterhead.

The pueblo is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Santa Fe. Interstate 25 runs 4 miles to the east of the community. The CDP is part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The pueblo plays a supporting role in Spanish colonial history. Gaspar Castaño de Sosa, a fugitive from the Crown, was arrested at the pueblo in March 1591. Castaño, a notorious slaver, had fled capture. He pursued an illegal claims expedition up the Pecos River, which had not yet been seen by Europeans. He made it as far as Pecos pueblo, and raided it for slaves. He turned west and traveled toward modern-day Santa Fe, which had been established by the Spanish. He followed the Rio Grande river valley south. On orders of the Viceroy at Mexico City, Captain Juan Morlette found Castaño at Kewa pueblo and arrested him. He returned him to authorities to face trial for his crimes, including his attack on Pecos pueblo.

Castaño abandoned two interpreters at Kewa Pueblo; he had kidnapped them earlier and brought them with him. Governor Juan de Oñate's expedition recorded encountering Tomas and Cristobal at Kewa Pueblo.

Potters of Kewa (Santo Domingo) and Cochiti pueblos have made traditional pots for centuries, developing styles for different purposes and expressing deep beliefs in their designs. Since the early decades of the 20th century, these pots have been appreciated by a wider audience outside the pueblos. Continuing to use traditional techniques, in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, potters have also expanded their designs and repertoire in pottery, which has an international market.

Duane Grey (real name Duane Thorsen) was one of my favorite western character actors. He appeared in Rio Bravo with John Wayne, Desert Hell with Brian Keith, and Charro with Elvis P. His last movie was Oliver Stone's JFK. Over the years he appeared in almost every western TV show. His nickname was Duke.

Another of my favorites was Richard Farnsworth. You may remember him as one of the Comancheros in The Outlaw Josey Wales. He was the rancher who hired Steve McQueen in Tom Horn. He starred in The Grey Fox, the story of a bank robber trying to go straight. He was also in the TV series Anne of Green Gables.

The Channeled Scablands at one time were a relatively barren and soil-free region of interconnected relict and dry flood channels, coulees and cataracts that remain after cataclysmic floods within the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Washington. The channeled scablands were scoured by over 40 cataclysmic floods during the Last Glacial Maximum and innumerable older cataclysmic floods over the last two million years. These cataclysmic floods were repeatedly unleashed when a large glacial lake repeatedly drained and swept across eastern Washington and down the Columbia River Plateau during the Pleistocene epoch. The last of the cataclysmic floods occurred between 18,200 and 14,000 years ago.

Geologist J Harlen Bretz defined "scablands" in a series of papers written in the 1920s as lowlands diversified by a multiplicity of irregular channels and rock basins eroded into basalt. Flood waters eroded the soil cover, creating large channels which exposed bare rock and creating butte-and-basin topography. The buttes range in height from 30 to 100 m, while the rock basins range from 10 m in width up to the 11 km long and 30 m deep Rock Lake. Bretz further stated, "The channels run uphill and downhill, they unite and they divide, they head on the back-slopes and cut through the summit; they could not be more erratically and impossibly designed."

Glenwood Springs, Colorado is a picturesque little town. If you are ever there, take the hiking trail up the hill to Linwood Cemetery, where Doc Holliday of OK Corral fame is buried.
