Eight. Apparently at Nob Hill Bar and Grill
last night if you weren't paying attention, a 20% gratuity was added to your tab (if you bought a dinner).
First I asked some of my fellow DCFers. Greg didn't recall if it had been added but mentioned that he had added a generous tip himself. Ester checked her bill and did not see an added gratuity and a third guy (whose name I don't recall, sorry dude) had… Continue

A few days ago, I had a blog entry about the big downtown drug bust and through a curve into the mix by also mentioning the new series in our AbqJournal
entitled, UPFRONT. That's just how my mind goes when 'blogging'. Today in the paper is more news about the bust with Mayor Marty now 'closing Club 7 along with a new and maybe best so far, UPFRONT...but this
blog entry is all about being up front
Fact is, I thought I understood the new AbqJournal… Continue

Aerodrone is the side project of Gary Zon (of Dismantled), and it rocks. The Agency rocks. You'll rock if you come out.

If Orion is raising himself up off the eastern dawn horizon (and indeed he is), can football season
be far behind? And CAN I WATCH THE LOBOS on my tv set this year? I have been scanning the AbqJournal Sports section hoping they would once and for all clarify this all important issue (esp. since LOBO tix seem a bit pricey this year-yes, another thing that will cost more this fall esp. the Texas A&M game)...but no articles as yet.
So, I call the man listed in the AbqJournal… Continue

I'll give more details later...
Poor bike! *boohooo*

Every month, green-friendly people meet at One Up (previously Carom Club) downtown on the second Tuesday for happy hour. I've been the past three months - gets a good mix of local government, alternative energy, green building, etc. folks. Last night we had around 10-15 people, but the month before drew around 30+.

Are you going to see UB40 tonight at the Sandia Casino and Amphitheater?
We've got tickets, and need a ride.
We live very near downtown, would be happy to share the expense of gas.
Contact me through LJ - thanks so much!!!

So here's something other than a tale of my driving woes or party days or my bird obsession.
I am fascinated with infectious diseases and I've spent a career catering to that fascination. It's probably the one subject I know most about in this world, and that doesn't even compare to others who have also spent many more years than I have following the bugs. Throughout the years I've watched new diseases get discovered, bacteria get harder to eradicate as they promiscuously toss about their… Continue

In the pursuit of learning and exploring this Duke City Fix system I really enjoy the setup and people on this site EXEPT!!! What the hell is with the profile section listed "What I'm listening to"? Not that thats the aspect I'm concerned with, but these people who drone on and on about the value and importance of there musical knowledge and there vast music collection which surpasses everyone else's . Sentences that start of with "To list my music collection would take years and would blow… Continue

It’s always good to “get out there” and do something good for your community. Even if it’s super hot outside and the work is a little bit more rigorous than you’re used to. There’s just something about the feeling you get after you’re done, knowing that you got off your ass and instead did something positive for others. Add to that the fact that this certain gratifying feeling can get addicting, and it usually makes it easier for you to roll out of bed that next Saturday morning and venture… Continue

This morning I'm watching the news, and there's a lot of fretting about Ben Stiller's new movie, Tropical Thunder. And do you know why? Because of the liberal use of the word "retard".
Now, as a person that works with adults with disabilities (most of them mental), yeah, using the term "retard" to describe how dumb things are is as bad as using the term "gay". (Which frankly, if you're still calling things "gay", grow up. You sound like a fourth grader.) So yes, I have pretty much… Continue

For the last several years, I have ventured out to my favorite star gazing spot south of town on the Isleta Pueblo to 'take in' the late night neck-craning vistas and hopefully catch a meteor or three during the annual Perseid Meteor Shower
...My luck has been pretty dismal (clouds rush in, moons shines too brightly, yada yada) but tonight was a great one out of at least three tries...The moon had set, the Milky Way was clearly visible and yes, there were actual Perseids whizzing through… Continue

My best friend Diana called from Arizona last night, wanting to give my daughter a new outfit for her first day of high school. As a veteran mother of two daughters who have successfully navigated (and completed) the murky waters of high school, her advice is worth its weight in gold.
My best friend and I met a score and a half years ago as college students in Orange County, California. It wasn't until I bought a house in Barelas - 12 years… Continue

For my fellow 'moderately in shape' pals - what type of prep have you done before going on big hikes? In particular, Mike and I are doing our second attempt at La Luz on Labor Day weekend and I'm looking for any training tips and suggestions (although I'm probably too late to really "train").
Last year in May we felt ambitious and did the climb. We made it within a mile or so of the peak, hit ice, and had to hike ALL the way back down. Beyond feeling like Jello, it was an amazing… Continue

Just wanted to mention that Balloon Fiesta has a few corporate sponsor Fiesta Tents still available for this year's event. I think prime nights for tents on average run around $3,500. Although budgets are tight this year for all of us, could be a good networking / customer appreciation event if your company is large enough (or you have sponsor partners to hold such an event).
If interested, feel free to shoot me your information and I will connect you with Balloon Fiesta's events /… Continue

Lord, I was born a ramblin' gal...
Yesterday I went searching youtube for Jerry Jeff Walker singing LA Freeway
. There's something very disconcerting about watching a video of Jerry Jeff singing on The Dinah Shore Show after being introduced by co-host Dandy Don Meredith. Whoa! When did that happen? And talk about a paradigm shift. I did notice that he had to change "sons of bitches they always bore me" to something milquetoasty. Ahh well...I went on to listen… Continue
