Today Karlita and I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum
It's overwhelming---more than I am emotionally able to stand.
So I believe that I act in the spirit of Almighty God; by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
Although I follow and believe the teachings of Jesus, I do not call… Continue

I remembered everything else: a bottle of water, my hat, my car keys, sunglasses, sun screen, my mother. But I forgot my camera. In searching Flickr for Creative Commons photos to use to illustrate this post, I came across a collection from an old friend from Arkansas (thanks, Clinton Steeds
!). Albuquerque is such a "small world" town that I accidentally run into people who don't even live… Continue

It's that time of year in Albuquerque again. TOMATOES. Nothing better than a fresh tomato, unless it's a fresh tomato with basil, crusty bread and balsamic. Yum Yum Yum Yum YUM!
And check out the height on these puppies:
Official Disclaimer. These aren't my tomatoes, but I am lucky enough to partake of them. The tomato master started with… Continue

This journey of discovering bits and pieces of 'Burque has been so much fun. For those of you that missed my post last week
, please catch up!
The best part of this has been having my daughter as a lookout. She is on high alert and makes the best suggestions for "mom's crazy project." I now realize that there are so many parts of the city she's not… Continue

I accomplished another first on my motorcycle.
This past weekend, BF and I attended the Fire and Ice Bike Rally
in Grants, NM.
But to get there, one has to travel along the highway. There are some side roads that could have taken, but for the most part, the… Continue

When I took a pigeon with a broken leg to the wildlife rescue at the Nature Center (http://www.wrinm.org/enter.html) a couple of months ago, they had their rescued raptors out for show. I didn't get a picture of the kestrel (darn it), but I did get pictures of the great horned owl and the red-tailed hawk.…

This story is going to make me look like a real idiot, but that's never stopped me from doing anything before. I like it, though, because it makes me laugh whenever I remember it.
My working relationship is more than a little interesting because my co-workers and I deal with an outside company. The other day one of the guys asked us to set up a conference call with him. Oh wonderful, a conference call. My favorite.
At the appointed time, I flipped on the speaker phone and… Continue

One of the highlights of the upcoming Duke City Shootout film competition is the "digital bootcamp" classes which are free and, mostly, open to the public. This afternoon my wife and I attended a wonderful class by film still photographer John Maio at CNM. It was a treat as we learned about different opportunities and techniques and equipment. For example we were fascinated by the sound proof camera housing (above) that is required
to do film… Continue

There comes a time in the life of a Flying Star counter server when the taste of near victory lingers betraying the reality of defeat. Sure we’ve all been trained the same way: take the order next to the pastry case, ask if they want drinks and desserts, work on those as you work your way down the line -thereby shaving seconds, if not minutes, off of your time and providing the satisfied customer with drinks, desserts and bread rolls to nibble off of while waiting patiently for their dinner… Continue
