Two a Day: end of an era...for now

I started my Two a Day project on June 5 so it hasn't been quite two months. I've crossed a lot of items off of my To Do List in that time and I don't think I would have accomplished so much if I didn't have the structure and support of this blog and its commenters to keep me motivated.



This sounds like a farewell post and it is, sort of. I have a new job… Continue

Isleta Casino's Lake Concert

Oh, where do I begin to tell the story of my adventure? Of course the beginning. Last night my husband and I and a close friend attended the concert of Blondie and Pat Benatar at the Isleta Casino's Lake outdoor venue. We arrived at the Casino's main parking lot at 6:15 and proceeded to have our own little pre-concert tailgate party. We stood around talking, laughing, eating, drinking, and enjoying each other’s company as we watched the people filing toward the entrance of the casino, queuing… Continue

Prior to the launch of our blog, Richard penned this editorial that appeared in the Albuquerque Journal.

Candidates spar over term limits

In a Channel 4 News report "Candidates Spar Over Term Limits," Richard again reaffirmed his belief that entrenched encumbancy leads to entrenched corruption.

New Mexico online shopping

I like to support independent, New Mexico businesses. I also like to shop online. Antithetical? Can I get the convenience of shopping onlilne for my sister's birthday present and having it shipped directly to her in Chicago, but buy from a New Mexico business? Any suggestions?

Why I Like Socialized Medicine

I have had personal real-life experience with it, that’s why.



I spent a summer in Italy. I got very sick. Twice. So I’ve got two stories.



The first time I went to the emergency room in Florence on a Saturday afternoon. There was nobody in the waiting area.



Let me say that again. It was a Saturday afternoon in summer, in a tourist-packed city in Europe, and there was nobody in the emergency room. Yeah, I thought it was curious.



I was greeted warmly and… Continue

Edith Grove's post about hiking in the Pecos brought back a rush of memories about that fabulous place. And why not? The Pecos Wilderness has to be the crown jewel of all the New Mexico high country. And it just might be the absolute best of anything that our state has to offer.

I'm a winner!!!

I have been on a bit of a break from writing on the Fix, but not from reading it. It's not that I have suddenly become shy, but rather that I have taken a try at blogging out in the big ole cyberworld, trying to help the turistas as well as my web site traffic by blogging about things to do in Albuquerque. It has paid off in many ways.



First of all, it seems I really like writing about Albuquerque. I am proud to be a Burqueña and I love… Continue
