With an Albuquerque contestant on this season's Next Top Model, hopes are running high in the Duke City for the new round of auditioners. We had to hoof it out to the West Side this past Tuesday to get in on the action. My own hopes were cruelly dashed by the age limit. Let me know when America's Next Top Model: Thirtysomething Edition starts… Continue

Is this like "duck, duck, goose"?
This may be my shortest blog ever here.
I'm just here to bring your attention to a good cause... bagpiping!
Long story short I had written an article for a local magazine that had their freelance writer budget cut suddenly.
With not much time left I managed to have it published by the Alibi as an "Online Exclusive".
Thank you to the Alibi and Laura and any ghosts lurking behind… Continue

So, last week's hike took it all out of me, or I should say, my knee! It was swollen and sore all week and is just now starting to feel kind of normal again. Needless to say, we didn't go hiking this week. This totally bums me out, because we haven't missed a week in months and it's all thanks to my aging body! Getting old truly sucks! We did take a couple… Continue

So, how can you help? Tonight & tomorrow night we are welcoming able bodied volunteers to come help us paint our new exhibit walls so that once our… Continue

So as of my last posting about the seemingly boring subject of hunting for the the Barelas Acequia/Creek/Ditch, and any possible tunnels that may be involved, I have come across some new information,… Continue
We're starting to take bookings for this summer's Doggie Washes! Dog washes are a great way to help your group raise some money. Obviously we're looking for groups who benefit Albuquerque's animal community, but heck call the store regardless and maybe can work something out =o)
Here's how it works.
You put together a loyal crew of washers who can work hard and have fun.
Pick the date for the event. Weekends work the best from 11-1pm.
NOB HILL FLYING STAR--It is hard not to notice the torn cushions in this Flying Star. Every booth seems to have them. And it has not escaped the attention of the Morning Coffee Detectives. I don't want to sound overly concerned about something that is obviously out-of-sight as soon as one sits down, but I was determined to get to the bottom of it...so to speak.
The morning busser had a plausible explanation which… Continue
How about some good corporate news during these tough economic times? The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for the 2009 Corporate Citizenship Awards. Categories include small business, medium business, and large business. If you are a business (or know a business) who works hard every day - not only in the office, but in the community as well - nominate your business for one of the Chamber's Corporate Citizenship Awards.
So many people are asking lately how Self Serve is doing in this doom 'n' gloom economy. Thank you so much for caring, asking and supporting us. Yes the economy stinks, and yes, people are (yay!) still doing it and shopping at Self Serve!
