How to get rid of the hiccups.

Long ago, back in September of 2008, I met this slightly unattractive mysteriously irresistible Jewish boy named Kenny; we had the instant love hate relationship of a couple who had been together for about 15 years the instant we set eyes on one another. By the time we left each others company, it was like we had been married at least 35 years. We almost beautifully hated and resented each other. I loved him more for it. But I simultaneously couldn't wait until he was outta my sight. Late that… Continue

Roadrunners and Birdfeeder question

I found some 1/2"-3/4" black "nuggets" (irregular, squarish) in my birdfeeder when I refilled it. I found some last winter also. They are solid, dry but very firm and cohesive, very black, no obvious seeds or bones. They are inside the hopper feeder. I'm trying to figure out who leaves them. I have never seen bird droppings or pellets like this but know of no mammals which would be pooping at the feeder. I am wondering if these could be from one of our neighborhood roadrunners, although I… Continue

Newbie here

I just came across this site, and can't believe I haven't seen it before now. Amazing!

Anyway, glad to be here :)

I'm interested in healing, herbal remedies and alternative healing, spiritual healing, and anything to do with the environment, be it green energy, activism for animals or sacred sites or preserving any natural habitat, regularly participate in sending letters or emails for Sierra Club, NRDC, WWF, GreenPeace, and ACLU.

I'm a writer, artist, and former chef, who still… Continue

Valentines Day Serenades Immortalized in Mexican Cinema...

For those not familiar with this tradition, serenatas are for any occasion where one wishes to express his love or appreciation for someone they hold in high esteem. Strolling musicians (often referred to as mariachis) are asked to go to the window of the beloved on his behalf and express his indescribable love through song. Serenades were forever immortalized in classic Mexican cinema where stars such as Pedro Infante or Jorge Negrete standing in a… Continue

It shouldn't be this hard to post a job listing, yeesh

One of our dear members, Self Serve Sexuality Resource Center, is having a hard time posting its job announcement due to overeager Internet (and human) filters. In the interest of helping them out, here's a quick repost of their announcement:



Self Serve is hiring. If you are open-minded, care about people enjoying healthy sexuality in life, want to teach people about sex, like retail customer service, and want the sexiest employee discount in New Mexico, please send a cover… Continue

Self Serve is hiring- but we're having trouble letting people know! Censoring job listings in today's economy?

Foiled again!



I am just kinda in shock. Craigslist keeps flagging our job listing, and now ABQ Journal has rejected the brief classified ad we submitted. I am looking into it, but I continue to be shocked at the level of censorship we seem to find.



Craigslist has flagged and removed our ad at least a dozen times in less than a week. Yes, we are following all posting guidelines.



ABQ Journal just rejected a paid classified ad that barely alludes to what our… Continue

Why buy from a local bookstore?

I thought I'd share this great list of reasons why you should shop at your local stores, not just for books, but for everything.



Look what happens when you Shop Local:



1. You keep dollars in our economy

For every $100 you spend at one of our local businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.

2. You embrace what makes us unique

You wouldn't… Continue

San Isidro de Los Griegos

My neighbor Candice lives in the old San Isidro Church that is not far from my house. Since I was a little girl, I'd been curious that someone actually lived in an old church. Candice and I met in an odd way – she was searching for images of the church on the internet and found the two stories I had written about Los… Continue

Dangerous Dogs?? Only to my favorite pair of heels. OPPOSE BILL 667!

Subject: House Bill 667 re pit bull and rottweilers - bad bill

Hi All,



I wanted to let you know that Rep. John Heaton from Carlsbad has introduced House Bill 667, copy link below, which will require all pit bulls and rottweilers in the state to be registered as dangerous dogs under the Dangerous Dog Act, regardless of whether the dog has any history of violence. The restrictions on dangerous dogs are serious and the simple act of not… Continue

La Vida Candi

This was the first short story I wrote in a college CW class. It was loosely based on a true story that happened a few years back in Artesia. Later, I adapted it into a 10 minute screenplay that was chosen for a live read at the 2008 Words Afire festival. The screenplay is better. At some point I want to combine the changes in the screenplay with this story. A professor told me that some people might find it offensive, though almost everyone who's read this has said "I know that… Continue

Remember Bangkok Cafe?

Remember back in 1990-not-much when your choice for Thai food was the pink stucco box named Bangkok cafe? There are a lot more choices these days, so much so that we stopped going years ago. A few weeks ago we drove by and noticed the face-lift. Tonight we found their… Continue

Tribal Police ticketed Mayor Marty for going 76 mph in a 55 mph zone at 7 a.m. The Mayor has paid a $55. fine which sounds a little more… Continue

A Modest Change in our Tax Code = 3 Billion Gallons of Water per Year

LOS RANCHOS--I know large numbers are hard to comprehend. But listen...what if a small change to the tax code for valley land owners saved 3 billion gallons of water, cost absolutely nothing, made life easier for agricultural land owners, produced jobs, and made our food supply more secure, more plentiful, and cheaper. Interested?



First, the Solution

Currently agricultural land is taxed at a rate well below that of residential… Continue
