A True Family Story



It happened when I was ten years old. I still remember it like it was yesterday. There have been times in my life since then when I have not thought about it, but I can never forget it. My family also never talks about it.



Never



I'm not sure the reason why. Maybe it has to do with the event itself. The reason why it happened… Continue

Locating My Vote

In past presidential elections, my father and I would debate about the candidates and their policies. My father was a staunch Republican, believing in lower taxes, greater deregulation for entrepreneurships and conservative fiscal policies. I have always been a more liberal thinker, believing in social reform and free thought. I wasn't against more taxes, so long as it promoted greater social services such as better education and health care. Oh, how we argued...I mean… Continue

so, you're gonna vote, RIGHT??

... For whomever you're voting for - You're going to vote, right?



This is NOT an Obama/Mccain conversation - it's a question of yes/no.



I realize that there's always a lot of talk about "Just don't bother, it doesn't make a difference", or "(so and so) will win without my help, anyway" - but that's flat out not true. The only way to change a broken machine is to do something to start changing it.



Don't fall for the "Don't bother to vote" spin, no matter who's… Continue

Poisoned in Nothing But Noodles

About three hours ago I and my family became poisoned in Nothing But Noodles near Whole Foods at Wyoming and Academy. Since everyone went down, I think it's not a specific food, and since symptoms began in an hour, it cannot be bacteria (right?). Probably they didn't rinse the plates well after detergent, or it's some insecticide got into food. Cannot tell for sure, but must be something simple. My daughter got off easily, with some tummy aches. The iron health of the youth, must be…

My Candidate for New Mexico's Official State Pastime: Piñon Picking

OAK FLAT, 20 MI. SOUTH OF TIJERAS--Is this the year? Traditional wisdom has it that bumper crops of piñon nuts come only once every seven years. Are we in that lucky period? I first thought so a couple weeks ago when MaryAnn and I drove the big loop around the Gila: piñon trees absolutely loaded with pine cones. Piñon picking is so common there that stiles have been provided to let pickers on to BLM and National Forest land from the highways. They… Continue

Double Time Dance Studio Where Dancing = Fun, Not Scary

Now don’t get me wrong, if you throw on some booty music I’ll be out on the dance floor after the first few beats, but when it comes to actual formal dancing with real steps I feel a little uneasy “gettin’ up on the dance floor.” A few salsa nights at Sauce and the Cooperage turned my unease to fear since the dance floor seemed like Albuquerque’s version of Dancing with the Stars. After those few scary moments in the middle of a crowded, sweaty dance floor with some guy who thought spinning me… Continue

Stuck in The Middle With You

It was about 8:30am Sunday morning at the Frontier. My wife and I decided that a breakfast burrito before church would be a good idea so with coffee in hand we scanned the multitude of open tables, a rarity at the Frontier on a Sunday. Moving along towards our favorite spot, we spotted friends of ours and joined them. Their voices were hoarse and strained from the Obama rally the evening before, but they beamed with excitement. They just couldn’t stop talking about Obama and how great he was… Continue

Access to Obama

There were 45,000 hearing people in the audience and 5 signing deaf people in the bleachers behind the stage at the Obama Rally Saturday night. Regular readers of my blog may know that I'm a card-carrying member of the smaller group.



Rule Number One for deaf people: show up early to any big event with American Sign Language interpreters.

This event was no exception.



Why show up early? Well, we deaf people need to be… Continue

Halloween Is Coming! Where Are YooooU Going?

Where can I meet your mask???

Halloween is a spooky night, but clubs usually cater to those who want to get into the various S.P.I.R.I.T.S of the evening. Have checked out links to likely spots in Albuquerque. You probably know of some great spots I've missed. You may know which ones offer spectacular contests, good music, entertainment that is above average, and so on.



For starters: Is anyone wearing a costume in 2008? What are you going as? Homemade? Store… Continue

Politics with a schmear



This morning, still red-eyed and tired from the Obama rally last night, I dragged myself out of bed for the breakfast and CD1 debate at Congregation Albert.



While I've known for a while that I was supporting Barack Obama for President, I hadn't made my mind up about some of the other candidates. I moved back to Albuquerque less than two years ago, and didn't know anything about either of the candidates running for the CD1 seat. I… Continue
