Im not from the ABQ so maybe I just don't get it. There are numerous barking dogs in our neighborhood. This is unique to my ABQ experience. Perhaps I was just lucky in my prior existence. Whatever…Continue

I was out and about today in the Duke City and saw a Doughnut shop. Given my predisposition for loving food I immediately made a hard right into the parking lot. Inside were several different kinds…Continue

Joe commented on Adelita's blog post Morning Fix: We Are Better Than This
""Albuquerque, we are better than this and this." To the contrary it would appear we are not better than this. These sorts of articles appear not infrequently in the Duke City. Its all part of the charm and sophistication. these…"

Joe replied to Chris Evans's discussion Installation of over the range microwave
"If its a built in over the range micro/hood vent it should fit in the 30" space between the over head cabinets where the range goes. Normally I install a dedicated circuit for these as they need it. A crawl space in the attic really helps. You…"

Joe replied to Lava Loo's discussion Rail Yards Market!!
"I find it ironic that the City of Albuquerque has millions of dollars to pay claims for APD, but cant come up with $30k in seed money for a rail yard market. Just sayin."

Joe replied to Bret's discussion The Journal
"Frankly there is nothing in that rag worth answering a question for, much less paying for. The news articles are overtly biased and only remotely factual at best. I have seen better commentary on a bathroom wall. But hey thats just me."

Joe commented on Johnny_Mango's blog post Santa Fe's Canyon Road...44 Years Later
"Damn fine story. Takes me back to that time in my life. Walking to the country store with the wood porch. Penny candy. Riding with my grandad to take the berries to the Flavor-pac co-op in Gresham, OR. Those where the days. So simple then."

Beating a dead horse. Comcast internet.

For several weeks I have only been able to achieve 6 meg on my 25meg comcast internet. I know I know. 6 meg whats wrong with that? Im paying for 25 meg. I have the afternoon off so I thought I would do my best to suffer through an attempt at calling comcast aka the devil. First attempt got me a female in some foreign land. The relevance is I could not understand her. Given I pay in usd I feel perhaps comcast could use customer service reps that speak fluent whatever. I call them back only to…See More

Joe replied to Phil_0's discussion New Jewish Deli in Nob Hill?? in the group Chow Down in Burque Town
"Is it so racist to consider that if one goes into  "Jewish" deli one might like to interact with a "New York Jew". If I go to a Mexican restaurant I prefer to deal with a Mexican. If I go to a Indian restaurant strangely I…"

abqmom replied to Joe's discussion Pets in the ABQ

Joe, I should have asked before you left, but if you are not doing anything tomorrow evening, we would be delighted to have you join us and a few friends for dinner, movie, at my house. It isn't anything exciting, but it should be fun, anyway!
Thank you so much for fixing my dryer, my clothes are tumbling away in there!
