Monday night BF asked if I wanted to take a ride with him up to the Double Eagle Airport. The other day, while he was passing the airport, he heard a radial engine plane and wanted to see if it was still parked at the DEA. You see, he is a plane buff - loves them so intensely that he even has a collection of radio control planes he flies. He'll watch every and any television special on planes, especially on the History or Military channels. He could talk 'planes' all day long. *lol*… Continue
While the Democratic presidential candidate in New Mexico was decided via caucus a few months ago, both Republicans and Democrats have responsibilities at the polls today. The most important races today are those for Congressional candidates.
I am backing Robert Pidcock. He's an honest lawyer, and this is his first foray into politics. Unlike the majority of his opponents, both Dem and Rep, he carries no baggage, no ill-made decisions in prior political posts, and he brings with him… Continue
this post is a little late, but a girl has gots to sleep, right?
Anyhoo, I had a fabulous time at the 1st ever Duke City Fix Craftacular show...
I hope you all did, too! It was such a pleasure to meet a lot of you DCF folk and
a special thanks to those who purchased some goodies!
There were so many fantastic artists, I was sooo inspired! There are so many
things I'd like to experiment with, and I got a lot of ideas from some artists directly.
Mostly it… Continue
Kids, maybe I just have not found the right place in Austin, but I don't think a good sopaipilla exists there. Hence, when I come to Albuquerque, I have to have a sopaipilla and honey fix from Los Cuates. I like sopaipillas as big as your head.
For those not yet initiated (i.e. my Texan friends), they're basically fried dough, put in oil so hot it causes the dough to puff when cooking (we sometimes call them "sofa pillows" because of… Continue
Our good friend and rock and roll legend Bo Diddley passed away today. I found the following on Wikipedia,
He spent many years in New Mexico, not only as a musician, but as a law officer. He lived in Los Lunas from 1971 to 1978 while continuing his musical career. Bo Diddley served for two and a half years as Deputy Sheriff in the Valencia County Citizens' Patrol; during that time he personally purchased and donated three highway patrol pursuit… Continue
I'm beginning to suspect that I'm a sucker for a finely turned out product photo. Not to say that MaryTafoya's pieces aren't a hoot and a holler all on their own, but MAN I love the colors in her photos!
When it comes to environmental resources, waste is worse than use. And nothing demonstrates waste more clearly and more arrogantly than Home Depot. On a Sunday afternoon browsing the garden department I asked an orange-aproned clerk about the many carts filled willy-nilly with plants. “Oh, those are the ones we’re going to throw away.”
“Throw away!” I fairly shouted. “Why? I’ll take them.”
“Sorry,” he said, “It’s the vendor’s policy. We don’t have anything to do with it. I… Continue
