Diphthong Denea

One of the fucked-up things about playing recreational tennis is away matches. You have to drive to some other part of town and play on strange courts.  And worse, we can't just walk to the Third World bar to enjoy some popcorn and beer with the resident mice -- we are forced to pick a different bar.

A History of Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona, where mighty rivers go to die. Phoenix is a giant sandy sponge that soaks up all the fresh water from 5 states.  The Salt and Verde rivers bring water from northern Arizona and New Mexico and run dry 30 miles short of Phoenix.    The underground aquifers of the Santa Cruz, Gila, Agua Fria and New rivers drift into the Valley of the Sun.
