For her 11th birthday, in 1998, I gave my Capricorn daughter, Nina, a summertime gift: tickets for her first Broadway show, The Lion King, in July. She had practically memorized the animated movie…Continue
Some insults are outdated and sexist. But calling someone a Douche actually isn't a bad insult- who would want to be a douche? A chemical, cleansing agent designed to make women feel bad about their healthy, normal bodies? We at Self Serve stand by healthy vulvas that don't need odd advertising gimmicks to incite self-loathing or criticism.
I am so glad to hear about an upsetting ad campaign when it's already been…Continue

The lightning photo drought that is....
The Sandias opened up on Saturday so that means that there has been some rain here, some of which happened just as I was landing the other day.
But finally, on Sunday night I was able to get a series of shots from a storm that rolled over the Sandias and over Bear Creek Canyon. …Continue

I read a ways back that weather pattern models suggested we weren't going to have a monsoon season. This is in contrast to conventional wisdom from the last time we had such an extreme cold/hot dry year, which I think was in 2006.
I'll take the farmer's almanac over meteorology any day, so I was pleased to see the thunderstorm clouds return a couple of weeks ago. Today the monsoons came back with a vengeance.
Like most things, rain doesn't come moderately in…Continue

While roaming around Nob Hill and looking for something different, something new I found a tiny hole in the wall with a fun show. I found a magic show. Who knew we had a venue for live magic shows in town? I didn't.
I've gone to three shows there and at $10 or so dollars its a good way to spend an hour and a half. And the plus is these are really friendly folk! Parking is a challenge though - it is Nob Hill afterall. The shows I've been to started at 7:00 p.m. and that…Continue
