“‘You talk of Scotland as a lost cause’, John Steinbeck once remarked to Jackie Kennedy. ‘That is not true. Scotland is an unwon cause’. As a supporter of Scottish independence, I take those words to heart. Here we are, shackled to a political state that is alarmingly self-destructive in its excesses but I can hope for a better future. An unwon cause, versus a lost cause. It’s comforting, even in the face of unpalatable circumstances and unenviable difficulties ahead. The fight, this says, is still worth fighting.” Source: https://www.meeplelikeus.co.uk/unwon-and-unwinnable-causes/
Ending the franchise agreement with Black Hills and providing public power to Pueblo and, indeed, to all of the Black Hills territory in Colorado, is an unwon cause, not a lost cause.
We took time out from our plan to visit Pueblo restaurants and spent four days in Taos. Breakfast at Casa Benavides includes the choice of an “egg bake dish.” Here it is with Christmas chile: red and green. It is wonderful!
Since I have retired, Mark and I plan to go out to lunch more often, at locally owned restaurants, so we made a list (I did it in Excel, of course). We included no chain restaurants, and only restaurants in Pueblo (I did list a few in Colorado City); we have over 100 on our list. I will be refining the list and I am not sure what the total number will be, but I will call it 100 restaurants. If we eat lunch out together once a week, we have almost two years of restaurants! I don’t intend to write reviews, but rather to celebrate each.
