Thai Vegan ROCKS

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the food at Thai Vegan, which opened last week at Osuna near San Mateo.

I confess - I've had 4 meals in the past 5 days there!!!

As a vegetarian (not vegan), the menu is diverse, the "faux" meat is delicious, and there are plenty of vegetable-only dishes to choose from too.

I've sampled the Pad Thai, the spring rolls, the golden tofu appetizer, the Cashew "Chicken", the fresh Ginger stir fry, the tempura vegetables,… Continue

Put These Words/Phrases on the FCC List

I have some pet peeves w/certain words/phrases that are over-done. I'd love to see these banned:

"At this point in time" - what about 'now'?

"Yummy" - should be banned by anyone over kindergarten age particularly by Food Reviewers!

"Bucks" or "Grand" - instead of Dollars as used by TV anchors

Anyone else?

How to Lute a Sunday in 'Burque for a Jade Earful

Imagine you hear the sound of pearls falling on a carved jade plate. The sound is round and smooth, delicate, falls gently into the curves of your ear canals, stringing a beaded melody. Or you hear thousands of hoof-beats trampling moist forest floor, thudding, the breath of men and horses straining, spears lifted. Or you hear a hawk lighting on a pine, claws clasping, soft bend of a branch, drops of morning dew falling to earth.

Or perhaps… Continue

It's official- Self Serve has been banned from Facebook.

Self Serve has been censored. Sound familiar? Darn, we're sick of this. This is not a battle we meant to choose, but those vulva images are apparently just not okay with Facebook.

We posted an important PSA about the unfortunate surge in female genital cosmetic surgery. You can check out… Continue

Notes from the Russian River

Jan. 4 It's a brisk morning and the sky is gray-white and overcast. I'm staying at the River Inn in Monte Rio, a small, sleepy town along the Russian River, enjoying a brief vacation between semesters in graduate school. The River Inn, nestled among dark-green trees, is a comfortable ochre European-style house, with a dining room heated by a potbelly iron stove and wide windows facing out onto the river, and small, unheated bedrooms on the… Continue

Bittersweet Birthday: Twenty Years of the ADA in Albuquerque

It is a bittersweet birthday, this 20 year anniversary celebration for the Americans with Disabilities Act. I’ve yet to learn how Burqueños are marking this day, but perhaps folks will fill me in. To be sure, the celebration is less important than the achievements over the past 20 years. Legislation that provides accessibility to over 50 million Americans is a profound… Continue

Sunday 'nafternoon rides - Two wheels through Fringecrest

The last couple of Sunday afternoons I've gone for a ride on two wheels, something that's fast becoming a habit. Here are a couple of quick observations from today.

A bicycle ride is unlike driving a car or walking in that you can cover a fair amount of ground without either missing details or tuning out because it takes a long time to get anywhere. Today's ride took me to the Ridgecrest area, and included a small amount of rain and a good breeze. I took a small amount of… Continue
