"Maybe IKEA could open a seconds store, just like the Rack - they'd sell all the furniture that people couldn't figure out how to put together, or returned damaged, or leftover from college apartment rentals. Good as new! (they…"
"Albq. doesn't have the population required for an IKEA--hell, I don't think the entire state has the population required for an IKEA. They prefer to establish themselves in much larger markets.
Why in the hell is Susana going to UT…"
"I think the Guv attacked Alan Webber, because she seems him as a legitimate threat come November. Alan has a business background, he's very bright, and he's a proven problem-solver. He's the real deal. People need…"
"There are some nice comments about Albq. in the Bones Jones piece. But nothing about his exotic cat that went missing and then was found a few weeks ago...
I love that the Gov's campaign team is rolling out the tired old Weather…"

What I'm Reading:
Magazines- My wife's copy of Bust, every month. Consumer Reports. Fine Gardening. My college alumni magazine. Brain, Child. Oh yeah, a few books too, once in a while. You know, Sherman Alexie, Billy Joel Biographies, Books about the Red Sox, stuff like that.
Masshole, thanks for the Denver restaurant recommendation! My post was pulled b/c I was outside of the scope of DCF--i.e. Denver dish. Lo siento. At any rate, I saw your recs. Muchas gracias :) I will look into Sushi Den today. I'm thinking lunch. I leave out tonight and will try to get all three meals at amazing restaurants before I head home (to my real favorites).
Yes. The info was very helpful... and I totally understand how you feel about keeping it a secret. I was born, raised... and still live in the South Valley... I always found out about the event after the fact... Thank you very much for the info.
We love Bandelier as well and are very grateful to attend there. Reese, my son, is in third grade, with Ms. Erwin. Her teaching style is so different. Instead of reading this hour and math that hour. She incorporates it into everything the students do in a more creative way. Their field trips are once a month to the Bosque, working on a program with UNM's biology department. She's the one who started the outdoor gardens. Definately a teacher who fits the Nob Hill 'hippieness'. Tenley, my daughter, had Ms. Lea last year, and is in Ms. Quinn's this year. Course most of her friends are in Ms. Ortiz's class. They both also attend Children's Choice before and after school, and during the summer. Great staff in there as well. Have a great year and we'll see you at the Halloween carnival!
thanks for the kind words on the religion discussion, i was trying to keep it factual yet not actuarial - unfortunately someone shut it down??? not sure why - i find that to be more offensive than anything said on that thread.
