A Rambling Head Case Waits For His Girlfriend

NOB HILL--Yesterday afternoon I was waiting in front of the Central Ave. Flying Star for my beautiful GF to come walking down the street. I love meeting her as she walks home from work. Last Thursday we met at an outdoor table in front of La Montanita Co-op. Today it's the FS.



Ants in my Pants

I'm a little antsy these days. Last April I flew out to Virginia for a bike ride and didn't get home until 8 days ago. It was the… Continue

Need a photographer!

HI, I'm hoping someone can recommend a really good photographer to me. I want to have a family picture taken of me and my family (Husband, 2 boys) along with my 4 dogs. I'd like it to look "fun" and not actually "set up" and perhaps in Nature or "rustic" looking... anyone know or used a really good photographer?! I've used Blue Sky Images before when the boys were really little. Let me know!
thanks :)

Nob Hill Shop and Stroll

Headed over. Saw the activity. Here are some photos of the event. If you missed it on Sunday, there will be other opportunities to stroll, shop, and enjoy the unique part of Albuquerque known as Nob Hill.

August Garden

Our garden has been both a delight and a disapointment this month.







We got this melon that looks like it was grown by professionals.



This less good looking but still yummy corn.



Unfourtunately we were attacked by squash bugs.…

Local Etsy of the Week-PaperMenagerie

This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller, PaperMenagerie, is a member of DCF and a blogger in her own right. Here is what she has to say about her artistic influences:

Lobo Lineage

The first time I saw Albuquerque was during winter break of my senior year of college. My 3 year old son and I drove east from California in an aging pickup truck to check out the University of New Mexico and Albuquerque as a possible place to spend a few years while I attended graduate school.



The two of us had been to… Continue

Weekend Around ABQ Part II





Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

Shop'n'Stroll photo tour

Sunday, August 24. It's 1pm and I've just tried cafe de olla and/at Los Equipales for the first time. Lovely. Today's actual destination is Nob Hill- all of it. It's the second Sunday Shop and Stroll and we're going to check it out. As promised, all car traffic on Central between Girard and Washington is gone. Free reign for bicyclists and pedestrians.…

Weekend Around ABQ Part I



On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting, The NM Wine Festival,… Continue

Birds of the SW in the SE Heights

This has been a great year for hummingbird visitors. For the last few weeks a rufus has claimed the feeder outside my office window. This one comes back every 20 minutes- which suggests to me C's formula for bird-smack is working really well (Perhaps she'll post her secret recipe).…

TIME TO ENLIST ABQ BRAIN POWER!

Nob Hill Yannis



You can read a Happiness Report in 2005 sending Development Kudos to those who destroyed an eyesore Nob Hill Parking lot at the old Baca Restaurant site to make way for a progressive Lofty Loft with commercial opportunities at the base of the residential provisions.



ARE WE SUCKERS? We lost the quaint, tourist attraction of Nob Hill when the city planners allowed an… Continue

ABQ Gorgeous as Fay drenches N. Florida

This is off topic for 'Burque (unless you were born in Jacksonville, Florida like me or have relatives there) but it is just so gosh darn beautiful here this noon with a slight touch of fall in the air under a sky blue sky...

Sex and the Olympic city

I've been watching a pretty good deal of the Olympic games, in spite of NBC's pathetic coverage. Why can't the US networks get it right? Anyway I suppose one has to figure that with all these young, fit athletes, from all parts of the world milling about, something has to be going on at Olympic village after dark - wonder no more :) Here's an article by Matthew Syed, a former Olympian, over at the http://www.timesonline.co.uk:

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I got the urge to write again and I pondered the subjects swirling around in my brain. Should I go with chile roasting, or should I write about The Dead Donor Rule, the ethics of which was discussed in a recent issue of The New England Journal of Medicine?



To some of you, this may seem like a no-brainer dilemma. I mean, c'mon! This joint ain't called Duke City Fix fer nuthin' and chile roasting would be about our most favorite thing in the whole wide world: chile. How… Continue

Homeless Pugs. In need of a lap dog?

Local non-profit New Mexico Pug Rescue takes care of pugs that are without a home. Owners, for a variety of reasons (moving, too busy, health issue, dog grew up from being a puppy, etc.), choose to get rid of their pugs, and if the pugs are lucky... they make it to pug rescue.



Kelly, the official 'pug lady' of the rescue, does amazing work. For the year that I've known her, at any point in time she could be taking care of one pug up to 10+.… Continue
