About this time of year I start to get antsy about starting the garden but long experience gardening here has taught me we can expect killing freezes at least into mid-March and frequently into April. There's nothing I like better than fresh-from-the-garden salad so a few years ago I decided to scratch the early planting itch and make some raised beds that can easily be set up as "hoop houses" so I can grow those early salad…Continue
Today I went for a little walk in my Huning Highlands neighborhood (East Downtown). I was walking by the corner of Coal and Edith and thought, too bad that boarded up structure looks so sad and forgotten.
I immediately thought of the possibilities, the 'what could be'.
Luckily I brought my camera and shot a few of the dilapidated
buildings. I decided to do a little amateur architectural rendering of
that shabby looking corner on Coal and…
2/7/08 UPDATE: POOF! It's gone. Wonkette becomes most annoying website on earth and biggest fraud since evolution by deleting shameful bullying story about Nuevo Mexico. Did Journal sue for its removal? Does Brian Colón's strong arm reach to D.C.?

Hell, my first job was at Black Eyed Pea and the second was at Applebees. So I've spent a good many years supporting chain restaurants, but now I say no more of…Continue

So to make up for not having a post this week, I have a little gem on my page for your viewing pleasure. I'll be back in a couple of…Continue
The New Mexico Legislature's Senate Finance Committee members showed true colors this week. They axed half a million from the Energy and Minerals Department budget in order to disable enforcement of environmental laws. Nice shade of industry hack with highlights of

5TH & McKNIGHT NW--For the last 10 years I had been hearing about a neon graveyard maintained by the Zeon Sign Co. It was said that every old neon sign that was torn down ended up there. What a comfort to know that these signs were safely sequestered somewhere north of downtown.
I moved back to Albuquerque after spending several years in the northern Rockies, and it was partly because I get pretty tired there of moving snow – shoveling it, snow blowing it, even snow plowing it – it could be fun for a while, but those times when you had to deal with it nonstop for a day or three became just too much.
I still like to play in snow, though, and I…Continue
