Big love to all the winners of this year's Poetry on the Bus program! I just returned minutes ago from the opening reception to share some snapshots with you.
The downtown venue was packed and the scene was groovin'. Apparently poetry events are a prime place to meet people too as I connected with a foxy engineer from Intel who was there to support Jordan (shown… Continue
Kudos to Duke City Fix, 100 Gold, Sadies, Mayor Martin Chavez, Greg Payne and Abq. Ride for the beautiful job on the POETRY ON THE BUS reception; for the gorageous book of the selected poems; and for the LITERARY ARTS on the WALL artshow (Yes, poems are art pieces!) at 117 Gold. We know the literary art pieces will look just as snappy on the inside of the busses too.
Come out for a free public workshop at our Action Buzz Neighborhood Gardens THIS Saturday, Aug 30th.

Want to know why the NM Rail Runner Express uses bio-diesel? What's the weight of the cars vs. the locomotive? When can you start riding the train to Santa Fe? What are the challenges associated with laying rail on La Bajada hill?
I am supposed to be doing dishes and sifting paperwork right now, but I could not stop myself. I had to take a few minutes to sing the praises of chile peppers. Dang, they're good. I just ate some flank steak coated in sweet and smoky dark red chile powder from the Fruit Basket…Continue

This is the first post in a series of interviews of the artists who work at Chroma Studios. Terri Hansen has been at Chroma from the beginning. She started out in studio #9 but later moved in to studio #10 after realizing she needed more space. Terri is a southern gal and a sweetheart. She moved to Albuquerque from Atlanta, Georgia just over a year ago. Her work is just amazing and what truly amazes me is not only how quickly she finishes a painting, but… Continue
I've been fisihing at Tingley since last Spring.
Mostly Saturday mornings from sunrise until 10 AM or more, depends on the Sun.
I have a 2 rod license. I use an old rod I'd bought in Washington, DC more than 15 years ago. I also have a smaller rod I recently purchased here in town at Smiley Boy. Both my reels are new. My setup is sinkers on both, with two hooks. Hotdog, shrimp, and salmon eggs are the normal bait. This weekend I'll try some nasty blood dough I bought at Charlie's… Continue
Its no secret, I'm a geek at heart, actually I'm proud to be as geeky as I am! One of my many geeky pastimes is Beer and Airhockey. For a while there we had regular Beer and Airhockey nights, sometimes we had anywhere from 2 to 25 people show up to play. We even had a web-app client roster and score tally we could update with our phones (years before Twitter).
Yep we were that geeky. believe it or not there were girls too that cane to play… Continue
With the horse racing and casino company relocating to Moriarity, the State and Expo NM has requested that we respond with ideas for how to fill the new hole in Expo NM's budget (~$2M). As a local I felt obligated to respond.
I proposed that a portion of the land be utilized as urban farm for the purpose of education, food security, and a place for the local community to gather. It's the perfect location for a demonstrative organic… Continue
Sometime it pays to say "have any problems? call me and I am there" so I get to do some snaky belly dance on the big stage for the Pearl Fantasy Event on September 6th, a duet with a ballet dancer (he is not hard to look at either) should be great fun, I will post photos when I finish
NOB HILL--Yesterday afternoon I was waiting in front of the Central Ave. Flying Star for my beautiful GF to come walking down the street. I love meeting her as she walks home from work. Last Thursday we met at an outdoor table in front of La Montanita Co-op. Today it's the FS.
Ants in my Pants
I'm a little antsy these days. Last April I flew out to Virginia for a bike ride and didn't get home until 8 days ago. It was the… Continue
HI, I'm hoping someone can recommend a really good photographer to me. I want to have a family picture taken of me and my family (Husband, 2 boys) along with my 4 dogs. I'd like it to look "fun" and not actually "set up" and perhaps in Nature or "rustic" looking... anyone know or used a really good photographer?! I've used Blue Sky Images before when the boys were really little. Let me know!
Headed over. Saw the activity. Here are some photos of the event. If you missed it on Sunday, there will be other opportunities to stroll, shop, and enjoy the unique part of Albuquerque known as Nob Hill.
