Baja Bloody Mooney post with recipe
Last night’s blood red moon eclipse was oohed and aahed by many spacestronimers in SoCal and Baja. 2AM? I can only come up with 2 or 3 things I’m up for at that hour.

Borracho, Baja’s bewitched burro, bets Broncos for the 2014 Super Bowl. Two hay bales were put in front of Borracho before his morning shift for photographs on Tijuana’s Avenida Revolución. One was painted “Seahawks” and the other was marked “Broncos”. Borracho first sniffed at the Seahawks bale. But, the Tijuana Zonkey chomped into the Broncos bale with gusto.
