Since Hairy McLairy won the last "Where in Burque...", we decided to meet at the fair so I could deliver the prize. There are… Continue

Framing?

I'm looking for a good art framing place to frame a tablecloth my grandmother made. What's extra-special about this tablecloth is that my grandmother grew the flax, spun the thread and wove the linen, herself, to make it. She added embroidery but that is unfinished because she ran out of colored thread. The tablecloth was made in Poland in 1934, five years before Stalin's ruffians captured my mom's family. My mom says the tablecloth was my grandmother's "last resort" item; meaning, she kept it… Continue

Looking for opinions on who has the best red chile in Burque?

After devouring a plate of huevos rancheros this morning at Loyola's on Central, I was wondering what the good people of DCF had to say when it comes to the topic of red chile. I have noticed so many levels or styles of red chile right here in our fine city that its hard for me to say personally what is the best. I have had extremely hot, very silky and mild and everywhere in between. I enjoy the red chile at Sophia's Place, Loyola's, Marlene's, had some eye watering hot chile at the Red Ball… Continue

Ramblings

I admit it: I'm gaga over Project Runway. I think in another lifetime I could be a fashion slut (am I allowed to write "slut" on here?), but in this one I live vicariously through the purveyors of tantrums and tuile skirts (not to be confused with toile, which is quite pricey these days--much to my French-country-decorating chagrin). Every Wednesday night, I'm in front of the television. My other television addictions include Mad Men and Top Chef. Mad Men because, well, face it...Jon Hamm is… Continue

Found Balloon, Lost Balloon

I found a balloon on my ride home today!



It was really windy, and I was scooting home from work on Tijeras, right before it becomes MLK, and this balloon got swept up by a gust of wind and flew directly in front of my scooter. It was too good to resist-- I reached out and caught it!



I came home and grabbed my camera to take a picture of it attached to my scooter, but it blew away while I was trying to take it. Have you seen… Continue

Giant Marshmallows

We went wimp camping this last weekend. When I was a kid we used to go not so wimpy camping, driving way back to the unimproved side of Heron Lake and camping for week. This was never roughing it. We had lots of good food, canoes and sailboats, the lake to swim in, fossils to find. However my parent’s generation is getting older and my generation is a bunch of self-proclaimed wimps.

So we now stay at Stone House lodge, the view is amazing, it… Continue

Doggie Yawns....haahaa

I love stories like this! Thought I'd share =o)



From Yahoo! News



Fido's not just yawning -- he's empathising Wed Aug 6, 1:33 AM ET







Dogs find human yawns contagious, suggesting they have a rudimentary capacity for empathy, scientists said on Wednesday.



Although yawning is widespread in many animals, contagious yawning -- a yawn triggered by seeing others yawning -- has previously only been shown to occur in humans and…

Around the World on San Pedro

Who knew that San Pedro was such an international street of mystery? In one corner you have a Mexican restaurant, a French cafe and a tropical grill and sushi bar. Not to mention a phantom German bakery. Interestingly enough, nonexistent German pastries are also non-fattening. The recycled shopping center sign is a testament to the ghosts of restaurants past.



Feeling a hankering for French cuisine, we popped into Le Crepe Pierre for lunch.… Continue

Yay!

I have a job; I get to move here!

I'm visiting my sister for a week to interview and look at apartments and eat at the Flying Star and get cupcakes from Cake Fetish. The cupcakes were already here and we went to the Flying Star last night. Now all that's left is to look at apartments.

I think I'll get another cupcake to celebrate, too.

"Wednesday Night in Albuquerque" or "The State of Metal"... Martini Mike's Hangover Report



As I continue my recent and strange walk down musical memory lane I am again confronted with 80’s Metal guys. Wednesday night brought me to a place I had not gone in a while… the local metal show for the local metal non-crowd. A friend from high school talked me into it. Another old friend from… Continue

Duke City Fix link referenced in Wikipedia

A few months ago I was working on an article for my old boss. The article was going to be about the little city of Algodones (just north of Bernalillo). While searching on Wikipedia, I found lots of interesting info on Albuquerque. The DCF link is down at the bottom listed under External Links.

Annyyywwwaay I ended up finding some great info about Algodones from Martha Liebert at the Sandoval… Continue
