Placitas Wild Horses Freedom Imperiled



We are fortunate to have beautiful bands of horses roaming the hills north of Placitas on BLM land. These horses have been known to live free in this area since the 60s. No one is quite sure how they originally began as a herd of wild horses but different theories abound. Some may have come off of the San Felipe Reservation, others may have been set free when the Placitas hippie communes closed, or many may have simply been let go by various… Continue

Serendipity

I've been walking in a smiley daze for days

Almost afraid if I move too fast

I'll stumble and wake up

and the dream will end.



It's been a while since I've had a valentine

it's been forever since I've asked

would you be mine

afraid to move too fast

so the dream won't end.



Maybe a sign

that's what I need

pointing - that way or this

I've been still for too long



I step outside,

slowly, not moving too fast

and in the purple… Continue

Living MY Life

I have to admit I have been in a slump lately. One of those slumps in which you begin to question who you are, who you want to be and how you want to live your life. I have decided that I'm tired of living up to other people's (family, especially mom, supervisors, friends and society)'s expectations of how I should live my life.



That life looks something like this:graduate high school, go to college, earn your bachelor's, go to grad school, earn your master's, find a well paying… Continue

Valentine's Day Keeper Quiz

Long before I started The Family Plot Blog, I wrote a book called A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout: Reflections on Dating and Fly-Fishing. If men were fish and women the anglers, it’s your how-to guide to land a good catch – with humor!



With Valentine’s Day coming up on Sunday, if you’re in a relationship, you may want to check if that man is a keeper (a True Noble Trout) or a…

Morning Fix: THAT'S AMORE!



  • The state needing money always equates to more taxes. Do Slim Jims and Abba Zabba's count as a "non-staple"? Yes? damn.

The Giants of Nob Hill





I'm not technically a Nob Hill resident - I live outside of the boundaries in the same way as the Fringecresters live just beyond the edges of Ridgecrest. A trend I've noticed across both neighborhoods is an increase in large… Continue

Morning Fix: We're not shy, we're contagious!



  • We don't even have enough money to keep them in classes, how exactly are we going to teach them financial planning?

Tortilla Therapy!

From the Two Whos Blog: Cece learned a long while ago that she could use cooking much the same way that a person could use play therapy or therapeutic story telling . Cooking can help people access their emotions, and to work on unresolved deep issues that are not easily solvable through regular talk therapy. Cooking is much less threatening and confrontational since the person doing it is distracted by their cooking. The cook is also dealing… Continue

Let's Fight to Keep the Film Industry Strong in New Mexico -- Save Our Jobs!!

Today and for all the days the Legislation remains in session, we in the entertainment industry can’t sit on our hands or bury our heads in a pillow; others aren’t going to fight for us, we have to save ourselves. We also need general public support on these issues as well as the legislators.



Politics and ideology once again rear their ugly heads over the New Mexico film industry. For the last two days two major newspapers have had banner headlines and articles quoting biased,…

Try Not to Think About it...



I am hoping for a further "Food, Inc.ification" of America. By that I mean that I hope people start thinking about where their food is coming from. It serves me right that after last week's Superbowl post that the idea for this blog post came to me while I sank my teeth into a mesquite bar-b-q chicken wing, one that was obviously genetically engineered for… Continue

The Two Whos Blog: A Few Good Women and a Few Good Men

From the two whos:



There is a love and hate relationship for the opposite sex. Just look at the blogs of single women and single men! We are seeking the opposite sex all the while cursing at them, making fun of them and treating them as 'things'. The Two Whos are definitely not going to do that., wink wink...



Cece and her friends are talking about swearing off men, thinking men are distracting to say the least. Yun is… Continue

Black History Month - Burque Style

We’re smack in the middle of Black History Month and don’t I just know it?

The Two Whos Blog: My New Therapist: A 20 Something Goth!

From the two whos:



Recently, as Cece bought some stamps at Walgreens , she was greeted by a very young cashier. She was about 20 and was a very beautiful Hispanic woman. Beautiful eyes, dark makeup...hair pulled back in a lovely knot...in looking further...all dressed in black and goth- like...black nails, choker.......with a radiant smile. Cece has to explain to Yun what Goth is. Otherwise, Yun would not have the faintest idea what… Continue

Keep It Simple

I have been practicing in ABQ for the last 10 years. If someone were to ask me how's the medical practice, I would say, "It's Complicated!"

It is not hard to understand the present health care problem.

For many practices, it takes weeks to get in. Why? Because there are just too many patients assigned to a physician. Many of my patients are surprised to hear that I have a panel of 2,500. Why does a physician have that many patients? Because they were assigned to…
