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

"Berry's comments are a lot of bunk . . .he is just following the post election party line!  I think NM being a right to work state has little to do with attracting business and corporation to out poor, third world state.  They look at…"

Sophie replied to Joe's discussion PNM Balderdash
"However they're calculating this, PNM is clearly using some of the new marketing strategy known as shame. It's actually surprisingly effective at getting folks to change their behaviors, and you may have seen it during this last election…"

Michelle Meaders replied to Joe's discussion Berry pushes right-to-work status
"Our union wages are already so low compared to other states! What kind of company doesn't even want to pay a living wage or benefits?  I suspect they want workers to give up any power to push back, too. Outsiders think of us a third…"

Berry pushes right-to-work status

berry pushes right to work statusIn part of the article berry states that "We sit down fairly regularly with companies and they say, 'We can't come to New Mexico without a right-to-work status.' Why would anyone want to work for a company that would only be in right to work states? I come from the Pacific Northwest and last I knew there is a better quality of…See More

Joe replied to PJH's discussion Let's just talk about CPA hourly rates now, shall we?
"Rather than complain about the wage of educated help why not bring up the wage of those who cant afford to eat. Fact is I could use a CPA. I cant afford one. Its not their fault I cant afford them. I chose a career path poorly from an earnings…"

Joe commented on Johnny_Mango's blog post Prepare To Be Astounded: Officer Dear Shocker!
"NM seems to be a cesspool of poor leadership and backwards thinking. I say poor leadership because nothing is ever done to discourage the savage behavior exhibited by those hired to protect communities. I say backward thinking because the…"

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."

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!
