Business' with Duke City in their name

I searched Yahoo Yellow pages for business' with Duke City in their name and got 51 hits. So I printed the page and started to take off looking when I realized I didn't have a clue how I was going to do it. So off to Office Max where I bought a city map and back home where I plotted them. Now I can get at them more systematically. Here are the first 5, I don't know when I'll get around to finding more and posting them.

Stilleto Sale at Dillard's

A bunch of cool shoes are 40 percent of plus another 30 percent off today at Dillard's.

And in case you're debating pointing out my shoe-shallowness, I'm already aware of that thank you very much.

Its been a while since I updated.

My life has been a wild rollercoaster.



lost my mom, got in a car accident, new tasks and chores given to me at work. Friend moving off to California, and at the same time leaving me roomateless. (which for now is just fine with me!)



lots of life changes.



But just so you know, It looks like there may be a mini run downtown this weekend with more LED lightup "throwie" mayhem!



If i have my Druthers, I suspect downtown may get a little more… Continue

A couple of random City of Albuquerque Spring Thoughts

I know it's an uninspired title, but one with a sort of double meaning... I have spent the better part of the last 14+ years relishing in the Random-ness of this place I call home.



If you have an hour or so to spend reading all my Hyperlinks, then here's to you:



Like right now, for example. I am crunching on leftover Matzoh at my desk at work, royally f-ing off on some important TPS Reports. Prior to this weekend I had… Continue

Adult Summer Softball Game 1

Things that have had a previous life . . . .

One of my favorite 'save the environment' ideas is buying and trading for used items rather than buying new, as a hardened anachronism I like old things, things that have been proven by time to be useful. We bought an older home a years ago, and it has prompted me into buying things with a previous life even more so than in the past. Now, I am happy to say we have a vacuum to clean our old home that 'fits'.



I have no idea how old the upright Kirby vacuum cleaner I have is, we… Continue

Need an apartment in Dayton, Ohio

Hey folks,



So my son will be working as a summer intern for the Air Force at Wright Patterson AFB in Deyton, Ohio. We are frantically trying to find a decent apartment that he can share with seveal other interns form May 5, to August 15th. Is anyone here familiar with the Deyton area. We are looking online and have found several apartment complexes. But, the problem is that we have no clue as to whether a particular set of apartments is okay to live in. We are in a hurry because two… Continue

Goodbye Route 66 Motel

The roaches are out of a home. This week The American Inn on Route 66 in Albuquerque, long dilapidated and dismal, is being demolished.



I stopped by the site near Central & Washington this morning to take photos of what remained part-way through the razing. Already at 7am, the vultures were… Continue

Community Diss-Service

When I mention the words “community service” what comes to mind? Criminals perhaps, in bright orange mesh vests picking up trash on the side of the freeway. Unfortunately many teenagers experience this kind of community service as their first major form of discipline. So basically we are teaching them that giving time to help the community is a punishment, reserved for outcasts and law breakers. What is wrong with this picture?

As child psychologists know, in attempting to discipline… Continue

just joined Los Poblanos Organics

I remember recently reading that there are no grocery stores downtown, and having just went into the warehouse and joined Los Poblanos Organics I am wondering if people in that area know about them. They will deliver for a small additional charge (it is about $25 a week for excellent quality produce) and you can pre-order organic milk, eggs and meat. No shop-worn vegetables, I am very picky and I was very pleased with the quality. Friends… Continue

Censored by Artists!

I recently moved to a great new studio space on Central. I have my own locking room with three big windows, carpet, acoustical ceiling, hi-speed internet, and the space has a shared conference room, kitchenette, lobby and restrooms. I love it. Most of the dozen other artists are there during the day, so when I drag in after work, I often have the place to myself. It's a great place to work on my photography and painting.



This past week a weird thing happened.



One of the… Continue

The Home

April 28, 2008. It's 9:30 PM and much too late for tea. I recently finished "reading" Historic Photos of Albuquerque (ISBN 978-1596523760), available at the local library. Seeing pictures of how the city formed is fascinating and adds some historic context to where we're living now. When we bought our Ridgecrest-area home from a friend, she also had a book. It was given to her a few years earlier by the man who built our house 60 years ago. It is the annotated photo album of our home… Continue

Are you doing something about climate change?

Will's post yesterday made me think that I should share this with DCFers, just in case anyone out there has some good ideas:

Frisbee and fair weather; blogging to stay organized; random thoughts

So I started the Frisbee Lovin Fixers group with full intent of getting out there on Sunday afternoons to play some Frisbee. Well, I didn't get out of the house to do any such thing yesterday. I do intend to making it a habit though, so let's try it again. I'm feeling so much pressure about time lately, but I know the only way to keep a sane grasp on reality is to get out there and work some of that stress off. Investing the hour or two will definitely help in the long run. So, let's give it a… Continue

Working on Mayor Marty's Clean Team

A few weeks ago I posted about my day at the administrative hearing I requested after I got ticketed at a red-light camera at Lomas and Eubank. The administrator of the hearing upheld the verdict, and I had a choice: either pay the $100 fine or do community service. The administrator sincerely hoped that each of us requesting a hearing would choose community service, and so I did. Not only did I want to do something for the city,… Continue

Jim Baca Says ATVs and ABQ's Arroyos Don't Mix

On a recent bike ride along the bosque’s riverside trail where it flanks the Tijeras Arroyo, I spotted two men on four-wheelers in the bottom of the concrete ditch, gunning their way west toward the river. This is the end of the miles-long run for the Tijeras Arroyo, which carries runoff all the way from the Sandias through the city and eventually merges with the South Diversion Channel before cascading through the outfall (an image-rich word… Continue
