- THIS breaks my heart, but thankfully there are awesome people like THIS in town trying to educate and support people with good dogs (like mine!). And their calendar is pretty darn cute too!

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

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… Continue

Last night I had the thrill of going to The Coop with my bro who won tickets here on DCF. With no idea of what to expect, I googled Fred & realized it was going to be an interesting, fun night. Bro rounded up the gang & away we go.
First of all, as we go in & are looking for a table, there is a fairly large area filled with what I call the "Fred Boutique", merchandized to the gills. Not that that's a bad thing. I liked it. It said to me that Fred was no fool. Fred was a… Continue

Inspired by Einstein: "Make things simple not simpler."
One day, Yun says to Cece:
" For many years, through many relationship dramas, I have come to believe a phrase I heard: “love is not enough” for a relationship. We need compatibility in all areas: social economical, physical, emotional, mental, educational, personality, values,... Whatever you want you can… Continue

Here's the Super Bowl Pre-Week list of things to do in the Masshole World:
1. Check in at least two times a day at this great site
for those of us who like the commercials more than the actual play on the field. Too bad we're not as pop-culturally mature as the powers that be in Austria, because then we could have an awesome ad such as this to… Continue

- So the Albuquerque Journal has an iPhone app. Other than continuing their idiotic paywall policy, it actually is an improvement over the visual travesty of the paper's regular web site. I especially like the fact that, when you select the "more" menu, you can go straight to the comments section. Pure entertainment and paywall free.…

Yesterday, I pumped up my bicycle tires and put my bike on the trainer and got ready to get on the bike for the first time...but by then I was exhausted! My shoulders were so tired that I determined I would never be able to pull up and maneuver on my spandex cycling shorts.....and believe me....that is a chore! So, I iced and rested and determined that today I would ride....except last night I was in… Continue

- There's been quite a bit of discussion lately at Joe Monahan's blog about the Rail Runner. The opponents seem to hate the fact that its operation is heavily subsidized, which they seem happy to talk about as they drive up and down NM's heavily subsidized road system. How about we put a toll booth at the end of their driveways and make 'em pay to…

It's been a while since I've been on DCF. Ironically when I first moved to ABQ I was talked into creating my profile here and was pretty hesitant to do it. Well here I am almost 3 years later in the Duke City. The person new in my life who talked me into it is now one of my closest and very best friends. I have never been more grateful to have met her. She is truly one of my very best friends now and I met her right here in the Duke City. Along with that I have met many new people and have made… Continue

Tonight we'll be taking delivery of a new old used desk. A guy named Archie (I think) from Thrift Town
on Menaul offered to bring it to us since the desk is not disassembleable (I doubt that's a real word, actually, unless it is once it's published, in which case I deem it open source; have fun!), and therefore has not a hope of fitting into the Yaris.
The desk at which I'm currently sitting is a cherry veneer executive-style… Continue
