I’ve been staring at the screen off and on for days, trying to figure out what to blog about this week.
This happens sometimes when I’ve been away from Albuquerque for too long. And I have been away longer than usual, thanks to some extra travel this month. But in some ways, I'm never that far away from Albuquerque.
So I’m wondering:
Should I start with the most popular question of the week from my colleagues here in DC -… Continue

So what's the deal with autumn's side of the road pinon sales
Are the nuts hard to crack as poets?
Are they dee-licious?
Where do they come from ? Wha-da-they cost?
Are beetles devastating crops?
Please educate us on this autumn New Mexican phenomenon/treat.

The football game on Friday night was fun and exciting and the Matadors beat the Knights 24-7. Woo Hoo! they are now 5-0 and looking good. But there is something even more exciting......
My baby made it onto the Saturday newspaper!!! That's my "Jakey Snakey" doing the blocking.
He was so proud to show me the article this morning when he came over to visit and have breakfast (he couldn't resist my offer of bacon). And… Continue

As a newly proclaimed political junkie, this has been one heck of a year. I've gone from nail biting, disgruntle blogging, and have personally dented the local supply of two buck chuck. It has been more manic than my family reunions, and that's saying something!
The past week specifically has prompted a higher level of involvement for me. Mike and I became more interested in connecting with other politically minded people and venting… Continue

being a transplant from San Francisco I just have to say....
Why did the Isotopes have to change who they feed? I was perfectly fine with the Marlins. And part of why I moved here was cuz I could at least have some baseball, even though it was AAA, and it had nothing to do with the Dodgers. I'm a Giants fan through and through, so what is the most hated MLB team to me???? The Dodgers.
But NO!!! Today I find out that my beloved AAA team has… Continue

People are gathered right now in Albuquerque to protest the Wall Street bailout.
"Route 66 is the Mother Road. Route 66 IS Main Street," a man with a megaphone shouts, "And we don't want this billionaire bailout."…

Me and Paula took our morning walk along the river on Thursday morning. We are blessed because we have a tiny little section of Bosque that is not used by many other people. We had just come down the hill from the levee onto the Bosque when our dog Osa started acting really bizarre. She was looking to the east the hair was up on the back of her neck and she was wanting to growl but she was restraining herself. I looked at a quick glance and I didn't see anything. Then when I turned again I… Continue

BUT FIRST A LITTLE JOKE.
A man dies and goes to heaven. He is greeted at the Pearly Gates by the ubiquitous St. Peter.
St. Peter takes the man on a golf cart tour of heaven. Numerous times a jet fighter plane buzzes the golf cart, strafes groups of supplicants and genuflecters, and shoots angels out of the heavenly sky.
The jet plane also crashes frequently. But it is immediately reborn from its exploding fireball, like an extended play in a… Continue

Almost 2 years ago my hubby and I bought this giant house on a huge lot in the UNM North Golf Course neighborhood, with the dream of it someday being Grand Central Station for us and our future children. In truth, it is ridiculously oversized for two people, but I'm a contractor and designer, and I couldn't help but see loads of potential both for our family and as an investment.
As I look out over our almost half an acre in the middle of town, and our giant basement with room for… Continue

Maybe you're in a hurry most days, or you just don't think about it, or you think it doesn't affect you because you don't have children. Maybe you really need to get where you're going, and there are too many of them, and it's oh so annoying to have to be slowed down this way Every. Single. Day.
But I am begging you - PLEASE be more aware of school crossings around Albuquerque, especially around middle and high schools where there are no crossing guards.
I have 3 children… Continue
