I found a balloon on my ride home today!
It was really windy, and I was scooting home from work on Tijeras, right before it becomes MLK, and this balloon got swept up by a gust of wind and flew directly in front of my scooter. It was too good to resist-- I reached out and caught it!
I came home and grabbed my camera to take a picture of it attached to my scooter, but it blew away while I was trying to take it. Have you seen… Continue

We went wimp camping this last weekend. When I was a kid we used to go not so wimpy camping, driving way back to the unimproved side of Heron Lake and camping for week. This was never roughing it. We had lots of good food, canoes and sailboats, the lake to swim in, fossils to find. However my parent’s generation is getting older and my generation is a bunch of self-proclaimed wimps.
So we now stay at Stone House lodge
, the view is amazing, it… Continue

Fido's not just yawning -- he's empathising Wed Aug 6, 1:33 AM ET
Dogs find human yawns contagious, suggesting they have a rudimentary capacity for empathy, scientists said on Wednesday.
Although yawning is widespread in many animals, contagious yawning -- a yawn triggered by seeing others yawning -- has previously only been shown to occur in humans and… Continue

Who knew that San Pedro was such an international street of mystery? In one corner you have a Mexican restaurant, a French cafe and a tropical grill and sushi bar. Not to mention a phantom German bakery. Interestingly enough, nonexistent German pastries are also non-fattening. The recycled shopping center sign is a testament to the ghosts of restaurants past.
Feeling a hankering for French cuisine, we popped into Le Crepe Pierre for lunch.… Continue

I have a job; I get to move here!
I'm visiting my sister for a week to interview and look at apartments and eat at the Flying Star and get cupcakes from Cake Fetish. The cupcakes were already here and we went to the Flying Star last night. Now all that's left is to look at apartments.
I think I'll get another cupcake to celebrate, too.

A few months ago I was working on an article for my old boss. The article was going to be about the little city of Algodones (just north of Bernalillo). While searching on Wikipedia, I found lots of interesting info on Albuquerque
. The DCF link is down at the bottom listed under External Links.
Annyyywwwaay I ended up finding some great info about Algodones from Martha Liebert at the Sandoval… Continue

There was a little story in the "New York Times Magazine" on Sunday called "The Urge to Merge" by Cynthia Gorney
. It brought up a serious question that I thought I would pose here: are you a lineupper or a sidezoomer?
Huh? Well, you know when you're on the freeway, approaching a construction zone and you see a sign that says "Right Lane Closed in 1 mile" or something… Continue

So here we are at number four in a series of crazy posts. I thought this was going to be the last one, but my daughter demanded I do a couple more. We put on Los Lobos
and Los Lonely Boys
(in honor of the concert we went to last week) and sang our hearts out in between screams of "STOP THE CAR!"
We've decided to call this one Animal House. We originally were… Continue

It started with a call from ARTSlab Program Coordinator Eric Renz-Whitmore asking me if I was interested in helping a production crew with some sound editing. Hearing the exhaustion in his voice he put added the flavorful ending of "it's crazy and nuts around here if you want in on it"... how could I refuse!
I was introduced to a polite and informed individual who also had the hint of exhaustion in his voice. It was around 3pm when we spoke and the film was locked and being rendured.… Continue

Right now, the practice of sustainable farming is both in resurgence and in peril. Farmers worldwide face profound challenges to their survival. Worldwide and most acutely in indigenous communities unraveled by civil war, these challenges include all that is unpredictable in nature but also include industrial agribusiness influences that pressure farmers into increasing their yields with hybridized and genetically modified seed, create addiction to petroleum based… Continue

No, I didn't take a trip to California for exotic exploration of a natural land state
