State Fair Blues

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Fair since I was a kid. Here’s the breakdown:



Hate: My mother and Auntie Mary used to take my cousin and me to the Midway and made us ride the kiddie rides every year…until we were about 13 years old.



Love: Seeing my friend’s sister become Miss Rodeo and watching her ride around… Continue

No Tom Thumb Donuts at the fair

I am desolate. I am beyond consolation. Histrionics aside, I am actually really bummed. I went to the State Fair last night with my list of mustn't miss foods and activities. BBQ pulled pork sandwich, check. Kettle corn, check. Tom Thumb Donuts...no check. No donuts. We looked and looked but there was no Tom Thumb Donuts stand. My husband asked the guy at the corn-on-a-stick kiosk across from where the Tom… Continue

BMW Dakar



This is Ditch's Dakar, it has street tires but the guy can ride it on water, sand and even rocks. For that reason he is limited some and not able to ride aggressive as usual. This brings me to the next video. By the way for those who are asking, for this video and part one, the camera is mounted on the front fender.

Damn you, Rocco, you kicked my butt!

Now that I've reorganized and started back on the road to following a business plan, I decided it was also time to whip my fat butt back into shape! I've gained over 30 pounds in the past year and I'm literally making myself sick. I haven't felt 'healthy' in over a year, since I stopped my regular 5 day a week workouts. My back is always killing me.
Enter Rocco, personal trainer and recent Albuquerque resident. I found him here on Duke City Fix, in…

APS & Mesa del Sol: Has the Wedding Been Called Off?

NOB HILL--It must have been a real stunner: last week's APS board meeting where Forest Covington's Michael Daly threatened APS with breaking away and forming their own district if they didn't get two schools built out there within three years. After all, Mesa del Sol has a population of zero...and several nearby south valley schools like Navajo Elementary are already… Continue
