Here we are squawking in front of Chick-Fil-A

Posted on August 2, 2012 at 10:00am 24 Comments

 

 

I admit, it made me a little sad --no, a lot sad-- to see how many people were at the Chick-Fil-A to support their right to eat fattening food** and give their money to a corporation who's president supports groups that fight to maintain a status quo that I…

Why I Volunteer at the Children's Grief Center

Posted on July 26, 2012 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

I admit there are some days I don't want to drive across town to the Children's Grief Center.  Their facility is near the Rio Grande Nature Center and as a bereavement group facilitator I have to be "on" which for a writer, and someone who is…

4/8/2012: Lead / Coal Switcheroo is coming!

Posted on April 1, 2012 at 10:00am 7 Comments

You may have noticed some One Way signs going up on Lead and Coal--remember, Lead was one way headed west, and Coal was one way headed east?  

Well the construction project that has been both a pain in the neck (roads closed, no left turns, noisy construction) and a boon (fewer cars driving…

Meet your Neighbors, Share your Story at Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice

April 1, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm
Get to know your fellow residents of the University Heights neighborhood on Tuesday, April 1 at 7 p.m. at the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, 202 Harvard SE. Refreshments will be served. This is the first of several neighborhood social events reframing “change” not as an obstacle to creating community, but rather as the a way to connect with each other and share stories of an experience that changed you. Stories of change are those that make us human, the stories that connect us:…See More

"Ned's Bar and Grill on San Mateo/ i-40 has happy hour everyday with drink & appetizer specials. On Fridays there are bands that play at 6 pm. Fun, and it's a big place so it's not crowded."

hey,

I keep forgetting to drop you a note and it's been a couple of weeks, but I wanted to say "thanks" from one of your neighbors for speaking up in the alibi about the lead/coal project.

You took a good photo of me at the Dia de los Muertos parade--I am carrying the coffin and have my face painted like a skull ;). I would like it if you sent me a jpeg of that photo! I am not very photogenic, and it's the best one yet! Thanks!

Hi JeSais-
I just realized I never got back to you about the rain barrels after you were nice enough to respond to my questions. Thanks again for your help. The story appeared in the Home section on July 25.

Hello JeSais-
I noticed your post about rain barrels and thought I would see which you ended up purchasing. I am working on a story on choosing rain barrels for the Albuquerque Journal's Home section and your insight would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Amanda Schoenberg

My husband and I moved to Albuquerque from San Diego in November, so this is our first spring here too. It seems that suddenly the blooms are everywhere, white, yellow and purple. I'm not sure what they are (cherry trees, etc?) I am hoping that next year I won't have allergies; I've been told it takes a year or so to become sensitive to pollens.

Thanks for walking me through the way to resign from The Single Life Group! I probably am a better fit among the Cat People Group, which I don't know if there is one, but I wouldn't bet against it. Je ne connais pas la plupart des choses, but I do know cats cannot love.

Thank you so much for your input. I have changed his diet and he eats dry food specifically for diabetic cats, which is the mainstay of his diet, and then I give him Fancy Feast before his insulin shots. He does have neuropathy in his back legs, which concerns me. He first showed signs of diabetes in June, but he's also hyperthyroid and I thought his weight loss and water drinking were attributable to that. It was his neuropathy that caught my attention in October. He had dental surgery in May and lab work done at that time, and his glucose was normal. Perhaps the surgery tipped him over the edge, or something? I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think he was diabetic for a long time before it was caught. Right now he's only on one unit of insulin twice a day and he's been checked for a UTI.

Again, thanks, and I may have some questions for you as I journey down this path with him. He's such a sweet boy and I want him around as long as possible.
