. . . I've been told that I write novels for email messages. Perhaps this is the way to go. I'll try to make each entry, or Gemstone, a "precious" one. On mediocre days, all I might be able to produce is a "semi-precious" entry. In any case, an entry might be a "neat" Gemstone--something that is uniquely mine.

What a Bummer

Many have made the pilgrimage to stand on the spot where four states come together.  There is a place in the southwest where the four states of Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico all intersect.  How exciting to be able to tell people, "I stood in four states at once!"

But now it has been discovered that due to human surveying error, that sweet spot is actually about 2 1/2 miles east of where it is currently marked.  What a bummer!

Yes we were thinking of this the other day when we saw the article. Wondering what the Indians will do who run the concession that makes you pay bucks to get in to stand on the four-corners plaque? Makes you think. Do we have to go back and find the right spot? Will they move the concession?
