I went to college from 1996-2000. While I was going every financial aid advisor I met with informed me since I was going into education if I taught in a low income school my student loans would be forgiven by the government after 5 years. I racked up $50,000.00 in loans which was the best thing I ever did for my self. I came to Albuquerque and taught in a local high school where the number was significantly higher than 50% of students on free or reduced lunch. I contacted the student loan… Continue

This week's Albuquerque Etsy
seller is KatB8888
and she makes goodness out of clay. I love her work for many reasons but foremost among them are these; I have a thing for pottery that you sew or weave through and her prices are so freakin' reasonable!
Here are some of my favorite pieces of hers:…

NOB HILL--I was gone May, June, July, and part of August. And MaryAnn was gone for June and July. Nevertheless, the garden we had planted in early spring continued to grow all summer. I was not home in time to taste the fruit...the sour cherries, the sweet cherries, the plums, apricots, or apriums. I missed the grapes...our 4 varieties of seedless table grapes: purple, green, white, and red.
But let me tell you about the vegetables. I was home in… Continue

Call it the “Miracle on SportCourt” or good karma for some hard luck ladies, but the skaters of Duke City Derby pulled off an improbable feat, and now more than ever need the support of its city. Last weekend the Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby (WFTDA) Western Regional Tournament was held Houston, TX, with the top four teams from the tournament advancing to the WFTDA National Tournament in November. Duke City Derby was one of the last teams picked to participate in this tournament, yet ended up… Continue

Less than a mile from the heart of downtown Albuquerque is a community experiment in progress. If you drive (or even walk) down 4th Street south of Central Avenue, past the streets named for entities in the Periodic Table of the Elements
, you might notice a small plot of land with raised garden beds painted in bright colors.
Enclosed by a six foot high chain link fence and a locked gate,… Continue

You: a handsome openly gay man who has shared your talent and passion for acting with the world for a very long time.
Me: an obnoxious chubb-ette, who is not a morning person, but a total fan of you.
Why do I take the time to point this out? Well, because I truly hope that you are not offended if you happened to catch a random person being tactless next to you in line for breakfast burritos at the Balloon Fiesta saturday morning. When I realized it was you and your family… Continue

Last Sunday I went to an event dubbed, “Election Boogaloo”. It was organized and hosted by New Mexico Hip-Hop Congress and sponsored by New Mexico Youth Organized. The free all-ages hip-hop/break dancing event was geared at getting people registered, and excited to vote in the up-coming elections. All night the event was themed in a way to encourage others to get out and vote on October 4th. There were even a few people going around in the off chance there was someone that was not already… Continue

Being an easterner and a lover of autumn, I have been missing those clear crips fall days - the ones you need a sweater to keep the chill out, a hot cup of tea really hits the spot, and the leaves crunch under your feet. But mostly I've been craving some fall color. My sister and I, along with a couple friends, took a trip to the Fourth of July Canyon this weekend. It was a perfect fall day - clouds, cool temperatures, and just the right amount… Continue

when your darkness clouds your brain its hard to see light...
sometimes you dont remember your sunshine you once saw...
as you slowly fall deeper into darkness you remember all the hate and fear that gets thicker and thicker inside your brain...
when you see light trying to come through you close the curtains and focus in falling deeper and deeper in thought with hate and fear...
as my cat comes to lay on my lap as i sit in my chair with deep thought, i forget the world and… Continue

I just woke up to the 21st Century and realized that all the different movies I worked on as a massage therapist in the 1990s in Atlanta are listed on IMDb - and there was a place for me to add myself as a set massage therapist and just plain ole MT. So, I began the process - my resume is up there now as well.
I began my listings with Robocop 3 - waiting for everything to process through the website before I can add the 10 other films I worked on.
I'm hoping this will aide… Continue
