The Cult of Coronado (the Wiener)



Whether you’re a Burqueño, a Northeast Heightseño or a Nob Hilleño, you know it. I know it. Coronado Wieners are where it’s at…wherever that may be. They’re the bomb…and the packaging looks like one too--like a case of dynamite from a loony western cartoon.



I once debated with myself about smuggling a two-pound, pink package of Coronados with me on a plane. But I feared it would have caused panic with the TSA once the wieners hit the… Continue

Sales .....

Seems some people (more so in sales) get drawn into repetative sales questions and techniques ...

While I was at Super Cuts this past wednesday, a guy had just finished getting a super short buzz cut, he's standing at the counter ready to pay, the stylist (in sales mode) asked if he'd like to buy some styling gel .... ..... figure that one out ....



Then ....... (as a motorcycle rider I know some of you have experienced this one before)

I went to Bob's Burgers ordered the 2… Continue

'Burque visits Obama - Inauguration '09 DC Trip

Just returned from an exciting and eventful visit back home to the DC / Maryland area. Although we didn't have tickets to any Inauguration events, we were hell bent on being in the area. To say the least, the experience was once-in-a-lifetime.



To save money on flights, we flew into Philly and took the Amtrak into DC. Just earlier that day Obama took the same route. Phily's 30th Street station still had confetti remnants on the floor of the… Continue

Jones Story #1

There was this guy we knew in high school. We'll just refer to him as "Jones." This is the same Jones I mentioned int he snowball story. Another "Jones Story." We've all got them. Stories of things he has done over the years that defy the law, reason, logic, and nature. This is my favorite Jones story. (Pissant was the name that Jones had given to a friend of ours named Martin.)

Dick Chingadero's take on Eldorado HS's Freak Wall, ca. 1976.

For more on the Freak Wall, see Rudy Carillo's piece at http://www.dukecityfix.com/profiles/blogs/a-visit-to-the-freak-wall-at.

Here we see the infamous "Freak Wall" at Eldorado High School circa 1976. This was in front of the Vocational building on the north end of campus. About a hundred or so yards south, in front of the media center, was the "Jock Wall." The "Stomps" (cowboys) hung out in the parking lot. At either end of the Freak… Continue

Bald Eagle on the Bosque

This morning on our daily walk to the Bosque we were delighted to see a Bald Eagle! It was just another moment that I wished I had brought the camera. It was such a rare and awesome sight. The crows however, weren't as happy, they were chasing the eagle out of every tree he landed in.

I have a question for anyone who might know, is this normal? I have never seen a Bald Eagle in NM in the wild and wondered if they migrate through here or something?

Get out and ride!

I'm tired of feeling bummed out about my situation and I need to go out and see things and meet people.

I apologize for the incoherence. I'm a bit drunk, tired and pissed off.

Non-believers

Regarding the inaugural address of Barack Obama: On the whole, watching coverage of the Inauguration, all day and all night, was THE most significant and inspiring political and historical event of my lifetime. My only moment of hesitation in President Obama's speech was when he used the term "non-believers" in describing one of many possible religious affiliations. Those of us who are not Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, or some other “recognized” religion are also not necessarily… Continue

An explanation of Albuquerque's seasons

Albuquerque, contrary to popular belief is actually a nine-season city.

  1. Winter: Generally begins on New Year’s Eve and lasts for approximately three eternities. New Mexico winters usually dip to below freezing at night and rise to 70° or 80° by noon, resulting in extreme schizophrenic fashion selections. (i.e. mini-skirts with snowboots and…

Albuquerque: The REAL True History of its Name

Albuquerqueños love their royalty, there is no doubt about it. The city was named for the 8th Duke De Alburquerque of Spain[1].

In 1660, he financed an expedition up the Rio Grande in search of the 19 lost cities of brass (the seven cities of gold, nine cities of silver, and thirteen cities of copper having turned out to be total busts.) As the legend goes, the expedition was seeming fruitless when, one day, coming up a draw in La Cañada, the… Continue
