Strolling the Ditch

Posted on January 20, 2011 at 9:15am 9 Comments

The word "ditch" isn't very exciting. "Acequia", however, is mysterious and tantalizing. It's like those Kahlua commercials that are giving the Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money. With the last snap of cold weather and snow…

Wandering on White Mesa

Posted on December 30, 2010 at 10:00am 3 Comments

You want to tell people about hiking on White Mesa. You want to describe what it looks like. You use words like "views," "panoramas," "vistas" and "pretty." You mention the natural springs bubbling out of mounds, the crackling layers of minerals and how the ground around the trails is actually alive. None of it does…

The Other Route 66

Posted on October 14, 2010 at 9:00am 2 Comments

When I say "Route 66 in New Mexico," what do you think of? Do you see the glow of neon signs shimmering on Central Avenue after a monsoon? Do you imagine the curved corners of stuccoed 1950s motels, now worn and cracked under the weight of time? Do you hear the revving of an old engine as an ancient Chrysler makes its way through the lights downtown? We think of Route 66 as Central Avenue, but there is another Route 66 in New Mexico.

Opening Day at Dixon Apple Orchard

Posted on September 24, 2010 at 9:00am 7 Comments

I had meant to get a post up for my Thursday slot, but something got in the way. That something was the nearly six hours my boyfriend, my mother and I took to attend opening day at Dixon's Apples. Nestled in a valley in the Jemez, Dixon is in a beautiful setting just beyond Tent Rocks National Monument and Cochiti Lake. The header pic is a view from a hike well above the orchards. Those are the… Continue

"Got any suggestions for topics? Let me know!"
1. How to use turn signals and who goes first at: 4 way stops. One way streets when opposing vehicles stop at the same time -- driver #1 is turning and the Driver #2 is going straight.
2. Who gets on an elevator first, the person departing or the person leaving
3. How to use conveyor belt at the grocery store and pull out check book (or other method of payment) BEFORE the total is announced
4. Arrive on time
5. How to get your swamp cooler ready for winter/summer (or spring as it has been lately)
6. ...that's all for now, thanks!

There used to be a hardcore band back in NJ called Clubber Lang too! Gotta love that stuff.

I know a drummer for hire if you've got some cash. Let me know if you want his number.

No from Apollo Creed! I actually started calling my dog that when he was a puppy, for obvious reasons. When I joined DCF I had a picture of the dog up. I'll have to check out the John Hiatt song. Any gigs coming up for you?

I've made you (along with a number of other musically connected people) an administrator in the Music Lounge group. I figured since I'm not very active, I might as well pass the torch to people who are.

Why hello, Ms. Grove. Thank you so much for visiting. Your hair seems to have changed. Did you get a perm?
