I said goodbye to an old friend today. My dog. My first dog as an adult. Romeo Tyson D'Arco. He was a lover and
a fighter. A lot like me. He was old and gained a little weight and turned a little gray... a lot like me. I'm gonna miss him.
I first met Romeo in a box behind Scalo
was in the box, not me at that time). I could not resist him. I resided on a few acres in the… Continue

I have a few free minutes, so I might as well give you the low-down on my trip to Sturgis. This is going to be a quick and dirty recap, so read fast!
Did I have fun?
Sure! There were a few times where I wondered what the big deal was, but it was fun.
Will BF and I go back?
Sure! But not next year, maybe not even in 2010. I think we will go back at some point in the future. And this time, we'll go by ourselves. There was so much we wanted to do but didn't due… Continue

although, I'm sure I could shake a stick at A LOT of makeup!
For those of us that are slaves to the makeup demon - the news is that a bunch of large retailers
(Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Filene's, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue) will begin a HUGE $175million dollar makeup GIVEAWAY as settlement for a… Continue

From my backyard I can see several multi-story buildings downtown, including the new Anasazi condominiums
. From my front porch, it is easy to forget they are there. It is not that I have the luxury of a front porch view that overlooks the Rio Grande bosque or the Sandia skyline - I’m in the middle of Barelas, looking out on a street… Continue

This past weekend my husband and I needed to get out of town, but did not want to go too far or be gone long, the perfect solution was to go forward into the past in Lincoln County. It is only about 2 1/2 hours from Albuquerque to the town of Lincoln, and all of the drive interesting. Most people here are familiar to some extent with the Lincoln county wars, and pretty much any on who are been an American for a few years has heard of Billy the Kid (hey did you see the exhibit at the Albuquerque… Continue

I tried to go to Sophia's
for breakfast on Wednesday and was both sad and happy to discover that they were closed for the day; sad that I couldn't get my breakfast sandwich with divine paprika potatoes and happy because they were closed to film a segment for Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives
for the… Continue

A couple of weeks ago, Andy (one of my coworkers) gave me this wonderful gift. It is Greenthread Tea, Navajo Tea, Hopi Tea, or Indian tea depending on who you ask. Andy is Navajo and he says it is Navajo Tea and that is good enough for me.
His daughter picked it from a wild crop growing on the Navajo reservation. It is harvested by pinching off the stems from the main plant so it is not driven to extinction. It has to be cleaned up a bit to eliminate spider webs… Continue

So I am ashamed to say that I am woefully unfamiliar with the downtown area. As a matter of coincidence, my life in ABQ just hadn't led me to that neck of the woods... until recently. I suddenly find being introduced to all kinds of new places all over ABQ.
This mornings discovery was Java Joe's around 9th and park. I immediately fell in love with the place when I first went for nostalgic reasons. It reminded me of some of the coffee houses I used to lurk in during my college years.… Continue

Seriously. State Senator Shannon Robinson has gone 'round the bend. And why is Attorney General Gary King propping up this poster boy for the Manny Aragon era?
I heard Robinson’s 35 minute senate floor “speech” Friday. Here's the story in the Albuquerque Journal
, “Senator’s Tirade Targets Nonprofits.”
The harangue contained some real doozies - like how he lost his primary election in June… Continue

I'm just back from the gun show at the State Fair, ran by silverspurgunshows.com. You can definitely tell it's not California. One dealer was selling an AUG (for a low price of $2100). Not all differences play into my hands, however. In particular, I wanted to get a Kel-Tec SU-16CA, because I might need to retrn to California in the future and the fascist government there prohibits everything sensible. But since New Mexico's government is not as oppressive, AR-15 dominates the market above the… Continue

I was just watching The Weather Channel and they're going on and on and on about Tropical Storm Fay. Yes, tropical storms can be really bad news and sometimes they even turn into hurricanes, but here's my taste test for whether or not a hurricane is going to be bad beyond belief: I just look at the names of my children or pets and if it's not one of their names, then it's not going to be a blow-your-mind type of event. Okay, so I don't have children--only one child--and his name has already… Continue

I'm pretty happy with the progress of the websites I put up for my two babies...
1) my studio site: www.tripl3tonestudios.com
2) my venue site : www.the-agency.org
These two site use a template my friend kicked down which makes editing a breeze. I use apple and adobe software to treat images, and then put the pages together with Dreamweaver and then upload with CyberDuck to my host servers. All in all, I can update the front page in about 3… Continue

Animal Control found Rocky bleeding and shivering – chained in a filthy yard, without shelter, food, or water. The “owner” was arrested and (deservedly) charged with animal cruelty. Due to the charge, Rocky was taken into protective custody. Without the charge, Rocky would have been immediately euthanized. He was literally dying of neglect. Rocky remained in protective custody for 3 months. He overcame serious respiratory and intestinal illnesses.… Continue

While huge numbers of Pit Bulls in this country are cherished family pets, many not so fortunate suffer the consequences of neglect, fighting rings, and a never ending bad rap. The ladies of Burque Babes n’ Bullies are standing up for the pit bulls by shining a new light on the loving and loyal breed. We are doing so by creating a calendar (to be released in November 2008), volunteering at Albuquerque’s Animal Care Centers, and raising money at local… Continue

A story I did not expect to come across in the NY Times - 'Two Georgians Say They Have Bigfoot’s Body
Yes folks. The day has come that you can pause and sigh with relief. America has caught Bigfoot. Maybe we should send the Bigfoot Hunters abroad to solve our problems. They could locate the mythical weapons of mass destruction!
Favorite quote from the article:
“There’s a lot of comment being… Continue

Singing for me equals Body Pleasure.
It takes me deeper into myself, and higher out of myself, at the same time.
Singing for me is communion.
And, by pretty much anyone's standards, I am not a good singer.
It had been the heartbreak of this lifetime - I want to be able to just belt out a line from a song - out of nowhere - and have it be at least listenable, recognizable.
It's the ironic paradox of the Universe that I get so much… Continue

The Birth Survey is free and available 24/7. Women who have given birth within the past three years can take the anonymous online consumer feedback survey. The survey asks mothers a variety of questions about their satisfaction with their maternity care providers and birth setting, and includes their feedback in the results, allowing other women to benefit from their experiences. In addition to the consumer data, the website will begin to list… Continue
