According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac the moon will be full Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at around 5:18 a.m. Las Vegas, Nevada time.

“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year. Here are titles most closely associated with calendar months” – Western Washington University.

Out West on the Southern Plains, Apache’s refer to the April moon as “Moon of the Big Leaves,” according to Western Washington University; no Apache translation is given.

Back East the Abenaki (Northeast Maine) name for the April moon is “Sogalikas” or “Sugar Maker Moon.”

*FYI – In the mid-90s, when I was traveling around the southwest in a motor home, I happened to meet the great, great-grandson of the great, great, Apache leader Geronimo He was selling stones and trinkets from a hogan in the Arizona desert. I still have his phone number, I think. BC

“Maybe Charo’s coaching of Pamela Anderson on Dancing With the Stars last week, was of help to the former Baywatch star, and The Beauty of Magic co-star with Hans Klok at Planet Hollywood. Ms. Anderson was much improved during Monday night’s competition, and survived to dance another dance next week. Stay tuned.”

La Loma is situated at the top of a hill at the top of a [1]steep driveway, and at the top of most Denver-Mexican-Restaurant lists. It’s one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Denver area and definately one of the classiest.

“La Loma is located in a distinctive Denver home that was constructed in 1887. The home accommodates a Cantina with a large fireplace, and three unique dining rooms – The Colonial Room, The Victorian Room and The Galleria are a blend of early American and Southwestern Cultures.” [Excerpt is from La Loma’s website]

The Old House is an island of tranquility and class in an [2]old, North Denver neighborhood. Dark woods, exposed brick/beams, cozy booths, and an antique, (working) taco machine provide the background for this above average Mexican restaurant.

Their specialties include:
Green Chile, Chile Rellenos, Fajitas and Margaritas
Excellent Service & Atmosphere

From the menu:
Sizzling Fajitas
(All fajitas served on a bed of onions with guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, roasted jalapenos and home made flour tortillas.)

Chicken (mesquite broiled chicken breast) $13.95
Steak (mesquite broiled skirt steak.) $14.95
Pork (mesquite broiled pork shoulder.) $13.95
Combo (1/2 each of two of the above fajita items.) $13.95
Shrimp (mesquite broiled, gulf sized shrimp.) $16.95
Fajitas for Two (choice of beef, chicken or pork) $25.25

“Somewhat higher prices are commensurate with the overall higher quality (all aspects) of this restaurant, including a large wait staff which is there to meet your every need – fast.”
