Lunch presentation on Nob Hills application to the Main Street program.

For the past few months I've been a part of the Proposed Historic Nob Hill District Main Street Steering Committee, we've come along way in the application process, which is almost complete. This Friday, the 10th, is the final assessment by the NM Main Street directors (part of the State Department of Economic Development,) as to the readiness of Nob Hill to participate. Part of the agenda on Friday is a public lunch for those who wish to know more about the program, what it has to offer, and… Continue

Camping 101: What to Take & Where to Go

NOB HILL--If you are a working stiff, a 3-day camping trip is the ideal way to recreate yourself. Sneak out of work for a day and a great big adventure lies before you. But so many of us have no gear or no experience here in the mountain west. And many would like to get started camping but really have no idea how to begin without going broke at REI. So here are some thoughts from a person who has camped out for over 50 years and just last summer… Continue

GreenBuilt Tour Coming!

One of my favorite rites of spring is coming next month - The GreenBuilt Tour put on by the U.S. Green Building Council-New Mexico Chapter.

The Sunday Poem: Sari Krosinsky... A bus ride with G-d

A rainy day, a bus, a stranger who crosses himself at every corner...this wonderful rumination is full of surprising insights.



Sari Krosinsky received an M.A. in creative writing from the University of New Mexico. Her poems have appeared in the American Poetry Journal, Arsenic Lobster, Pebble Lake Review, Poetica, Verse Daily and others. She edits Fickle Muses, an online journal of mythic… Continue

The Annual Elm Seed Festival

I know that not every neighborhood in Albuquerque has elm trees, but in the Near North Valley and for miles around us, they are everywhere. In the spring these trees present trillions of seeds on their branches before a single leaf bud pops out. With our recent weather pattern - windy, windier and windiest - down they come and the Annual Elm Seed Festival of Albuquerque has begun.



The seeds usually turn a straw color and then fall like… Continue

Feathered Friend

For the past couple of weeks, I have had the pleasure of being entertained every morning and afternoon by a little red finch. He comes up to my office window and goes through a chaotic ritual of pecking the window, fluttering about and chirping his heart out. Not only has he provided amusement for me but, my coworkers come by to check on him and watch his antics. He has been a welcome respite in an otherwise high stress work environment. More intriguing is that he has brought people together… Continue

A Call For Clarification From the Hipster Weather Guy

Has anyone else noticed the new weather guy on Channel 4? He's a bona fide meterologist and all, so props to KOB on that. But what drives me insane is the three different ways he pronounces his name (there may be a fourth...my kids and I are still debating).

The Hipster, as my kids have (perhaps disrespectfully) taken to calling him, is named Michael Kelting and he pronounces his last name in these three key ways: Kelting (regular), Kyelting (slight slowdown in the middle) and Kel-TING… Continue

Where in Burque is Adelita? The Random Edition UPDATE: New title - Gotcha!

Every time I do one of these "Where in Burque" posts, I swear it will be the last one. Then I notice something cool, pull out the camera and have to do a whole new one. I didn't really have a theme for this one, hence the randomness of the photos. I have to give credit to my eagle-eyed daughter who has a knack for noticing such cool things in our fair city.



Let's see who can figure out all this randomness!
