Kickin' it on Saturdays

A couple of years ago I switched my boys to a new league for playing soccer. We had been with another league but I just got tired of the antics - and found that Zia Futbol is a great place for my kids to have fun and learn the game.

And while spring soccer usually involves some cold games and practices (it was SNOWING during our last Friday practice!) we can usually count on some gorgeous days as well.

I love watch my children play, of… Continue

Take the RailRunner to White Sands?

I stumbled across this story from some online publication called and was shocked by how much ignorance is contained in one short post about the Duke City and New Mexico.

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary: it's Time!

Considering we had snow flurries here in the Q two days ago, it's just a bit too early, yet I couldn't wait even another weekend to start my garden. Chili and tomatoes will go in pots, so I built a waist high garden today for the herbs. It's four foot square. I laid screen over the wooden slats at the bottom, then a piece of cloth, then two inches of pea gravel, six inches of garden soil and one inch of… Continue

OFFCenter's Website has a Fresh Face

Whew, we finished freshening up the website and there's more to come, but for now, we've got a new design by Mary Lambert, some new photos, and best of all (for us) and hopefully easy (for donors) some Paypal donation buttons. Just testing the buttons before we went live, we got about a dozen donations! This is so good!

The calendar is the same as before -- it's a Google calendar updated right from the… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Elaine Schwartz... Pilgrimage

Just reading this powerful piece is itself a "Pilgrimage"...a search for meaning, for significance. This poem has eyes. It sees beyond headlines. It caresses the human face of Truth. It will follow you home.

Albuquerque poet Elaine G. Schwartz lives with her husband, Daniel, and Purr’l the Postmodern Pussy Cat. Her work, best described as a tapestry of place and political imagination, has appeared in numerous publications including… Continue

Hominy (Posole)

Being relatively new to ABQ, can someone tell me the pros and cons of frozen vs canned hominy for making posole? I've used the frozen, and remember the "aroma" of canned from many many many years ago when it completely turned me off. Would it be more acceptable to use in posole, or just easier?

Russian Roulette @ Yale and Coal

Picture driving during the rush hour. You are on Yale, going south, and you want to make a turn on Coal (it's one way, you can only turn left.) The traffic coming from the opposite direction is relentless. As usual, they disregard the yellow light, and keep flying through the intersection up to the moment (and sometimes beyond) when the light turns red. If you are trying to make that left turn, you are S.O.L. I've been caught behind the timid who sit there, paralyzed, and end up waiting for the… Continue

The Beginnings of a Bicycle Boulevard

I had yet to actually post a blog post on my profile here, preferring to just send people to my personal blog instead. But I felt like the birth of the bicycle boulevard was worthy of a first time post.

As shown in the photo above, I saw a bunch of markings on Silver Avenue south of UNM.

This is one of the pavement markings for the new Bicycle Boulevard system which has been talked about for months. These markings, along with… Continue

Coyote On A Fence

We have a new play currently running here at the Desert Rose Playhouse called, "Coyote On A Fence". It takes a deep and personal look at the death penalty and what it really means to be innocent.

I saw this show on opening night and I must say this show does bring up some thought provoking questions This show has even been known to change people's minds about the death penalty. Now it didn't really change my opinion but I will say that it really emphasized to me how hard it is to… Continue

The cost of the Q...

KOAT ran a story last night I found interesting entitled, "Are New Street Signs Wasteful Spending." It reminded me of a past post - "Your Q Dollars." - February 7th, 2008

I still remember the original claim by city officials -
It costs $1,400 to put The Q decals on the sides of…

This Week's Inspiration: Motorcycle Ride!

My inspiration for this week was an amazing, fun filled motorcycle ride in the East Mountains with my artist friend, Jacqui. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. I've been telling Jacqui that I really want a motorcycle, so she offered to take me for a ride on hers.

It's been at least 20 years since I've been, at least that I can… Continue
