I'm not gonna call shenanigans yet, but the past two weeks have been pretty crazy. Who here hasn't gotten 10 calls from Hillary
this last week? This morning, I'm home with the ill child, the phone rings... Hillary campaign. Again. So the guy starts in on his shtick, and as I try and politely tell him I have heard it already the call waiting beep sounds. Probably my wife or the doctor I think to myself, and half panic cause I'm a tard with this particular phone and… Continue

Mom: "Honey, see all those pictures? Those are the presidents of the United States. Do you notice anything about them?
Young son: "No, mommy, what should I notice?"
Mom: "They all look the same."
Son: "Oh... Mommy, when is Obama going to be up there with those guys?"
Mom: "Well honey, he's not the president yet, but he will be soon."
Out of the mouths of babes ....

So I made it to the Taylor Ranch Community Center
at 12:05 today to cast my ballot. Yes, they were voting at the middle school walking distance from my house, but for some reason it made more sense to send me on a 12 minute drive to Taylor Ranch.
I parked my car and scurried inside the community center. I waited in line… some clever Udall staffer was getting signatures for his race. I signed the… Continue

5TH & McKNIGHT NW--For the last 10 years I had been hearing about a neon graveyard maintained by the Zeon Sign Co. It was said that every old neon sign that was torn down ended up there. What a comfort to know that these signs were safely sequestered somewhere north of downtown.
I decided to check it out in person...and looked forward to being dazzled again by th… Continue

I moved back to Albuquerque after spending several years in the northern Rockies, and it was partly because I get pretty tired there of moving snow – shoveling it, snow blowing it, even snow plowing it – it could be fun for a while, but those times when you had to deal with it nonstop for a day or three became just too much.
I still like to play in snow, though, and I… Continue

Yesterday as I was reading the news online, I came across this article
about the discovery of a previously unpublished photo of Ernie Pyle. As many of you Burqueans may know, Ernie Pyle has an Albuquerque connection. The Ernie Pyle Memorial Library
was built in the only home that Ernie Pyle ever lived in.
The AP article from yesterday… Continue

Happy Demo-Caucus Day! Hope everyone has a good day exercising their right to vote!
And, if you don't know where to go - the NM Democratic Party site is much more helpful than the Berno county site.
and if you want more info on what the NM Republican Party is doing - their site is pretty helpful too!

Tomorrow in New Mexico, we will join nearly two dozen other states in
voting for our choice for the Democratic candidate. The field has been
winnowed down to just two contenders, Senator Barack Obama and Senator
Hillary Clinton. Both
are good choices, and would be not only a vast improvement over the
current President, but would offer a better choice by far than… Continue

I'm currently sitting in the Satellite Coffee shop here on the East end of Nob Hill, watching the sunlight stream through the front windows and sipping my coffee. We actually made it! The hold-up at the OR-CA border was the only one of the trip, and we raced down 99 and I-40 through Cali and Northern Arizona to make it into Albuquerque by 2pm on Saturday. We're still waiting for our stuff to arrive and Comcast to show up for installation, but the dogs have started to settle in nicely. The wife… Continue

I found this online and I just had to share it!
Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact.

So, now, it really is time to hang the show. Good thing you got all of the pieces properly set up with D-rings and such beforehand, no? Who has time to do all of that when you only have a day or two to get the stuff on the walls?
Well, let’s just do one wall at a time. Here we have five pieces that are going to go on this wall here. This is a spur wall, meaning it is a smaller wall that juts out from one of the main walls of the space. To the left you have a corner where the spur… Continue

Albuquerque is blessed to be located in a fertile river valley – the only fertile river valley for hundreds of miles around. But agriculture here has its detractors – especially when it comes to the topic of water use.
A conversation the other night was typical and led inexorably to comparing water for agriculture, especially evil alfalfa, to water for urban uses, like our hero the microchip.… Continue

An annual ritual of decadence and depravity looms large for millions of our fellow citizens. Tomorrow 75% of the adult male population will be shit faced by 4 PM MST. The Super Bowl begins about 20 minutes later. The four hour human demolition derby grants we men permission to make fools of ourselves without penalty. Continue

Here's the link, but if you don't read internet gossip you shoud just ignore this as it is beneath you. You are a better person and you should not be tainted. But it's also funny so you decide.
