Winners of Poetry on the Bus

Jordan Martinez, with his poem for Poetry on the Bus

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

Poetry on the Bus is HERE!

abq ride bus poetry

A packed house @ 117 Gold

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.

Laboring back into history

I am taking a break from my normal blog posts about my motorcycling to write about an adventure that BF and I take every Labor Day weekend.

When I explain this holiday tradition to others, I receive looks of confusion or bewilderment or even ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe you do that’!

But do it, we do!

We relive the past. We dig into the culture of the fur trade era and embrace the simple (and many times harsh) life of the Mountain Men (MM) and Indians. We take… Continue

Chiles - Smokin' Good Times

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

Artist Interview: Terri Hansen

Red Tulips

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

Fishing at Tingley

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 all fun and games, until someone looses an eye, then its a Sport!

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

Where does the New Mexico State Fairgrounds go from here?

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

A Rambling Head Case Waits For His Girlfriend

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

Need a photographer!

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!
thanks :)
