Profile Information

Where I Live:
North Valley
About Me:
Fourth Street is my life line and Los Griegos is my neighborhood. I was raised on McIlheney’s milk, Furr’s cafeteria and Lobo basketball. I have a cousin in every quadrant of the city, a mutt named Zsa Zsa Gabor, a cat named Trixie and a cat named Lola Falana. Familia is what matters most to me and taking pictures of weird mannequins is an obsession of mine. I am the queen of Mod Podge. Oh yeah, one other thing, I'm co-publisher of this site! Hay te watcho y con safos …
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
My neighborhood, Duran's red chile, Powdrell's BBQ, The Frontier, Lobo basketball and The Pit, great museums, great bead stores, cottonwoods, and most of all mi familia and friends.

Burque Music Scene: Mystic Vision

While my heart will always belong to the blues, reggae is a close second.   The Harder They Come soundtrack was one of my favorite albums as a kid and is still in constant rotation in my playlists.  I love reggae.

Back in 1993, three La Cueva students felt the same way about reggae and…

Did you know that Small Business Saturday is November 29?  Small Business Saturday is a great way to avoid the crush of Black Friday at the mall and big box stores, and a way to support local…

Couldn't resist.  I had to go to the Levitated Toy Factory open house and check out this mystery business. Through the crush of people I was able to take a few photographs of what happens behind their doors.  There were giant cardboard structures and small cardboard pieces for people to play with.

I know that Austin and Nashville are great music cities, but did you know that Albuquerque has a great musical history and incredible talent?  That’s right, we have outstanding musicians, singers, and bands in this town!  Every Saturday I will post videos and a little history of musical legends, old and young, that either play in Albuquerque or got their start…

Adelita, I just posted a book review and marked it for Nov. 5, but it popped up anyway, I think. I can see it, but maybe no one else can. I dated it for the fhe so that you could make the decision on when to use it. Can you let me know if it is already posted and if so, can you move it around to where it's supposed to be.  I am having so much trouble negotiation DCF.  

I think this is a post that might get some hits because I listed a whole bunch of names of former Albuquerque Journal reporters 1950s to 1973, who might be members or hear about it. Sounds funny, but when you see it in context, you'll understand better i think.
