    Rancho Santa Clara Al: Yesterday, growing a bit restless at the ranch despite the spectacular weather, Stew and I drove to Querétaro, to check what the hubbub surrounding the grand opening of an HEB supermarket was all about.

    And a hubbub it was. HEB's extra large parking lot was packed, and there were at least a dozen cars waiting to get in by the exit ramp off the highway. The shopping frenzy no doubt was abetted by a series of billboards lining the expressway into Querétaro.

    Stew and I looked at each other and said "Screw it," or perhaps something stronger, and drove by to the quite dowdy Superama down the road, next to the equally dowdy and smallish Home Depot.

    As we were leaving, Stew observed that it's getting harder to tell Querétaro apart from a suburb of Chicago.
