Ramblings2

Lord, I was born a ramblin' gal...



Music

Yesterday I went searching youtube for Jerry Jeff Walker singing LA Freeway. There's something very disconcerting about watching a video of Jerry Jeff singing on The Dinah Shore Show after being introduced by co-host Dandy Don Meredith. Whoa! When did that happen? And talk about a paradigm shift. I did notice that he had to change "sons of bitches they always bore me" to something milquetoasty. Ahh well...I went on to listen… Continue

Visiting cuba and la jara, NM

So good times in a different area in NM. we did go hiking and it was so fun!! there are never any trails and the grass and everything are up to your knees. just for the first 10min. you have to crawl through barb wire fences to get to the other side, which we did about 3 or 4 times. but its such a small town that everyone knows everyone so they dont mind you cut through there land to get to the beautiful hiking area. i just love it. no trails, no maps, you just follow the trees and cactus. you… Continue

What's in a Name? Martini Mike's Hangover Report! for Saturday 080908



Could it be because my name is “Martini Mike” that I am becoming a sort of unofficial party guru? Or is it because I was an unofficial party guru that my name became “Martini Mike”? Hmmm… it boggles my pounding head. I was recently interviewed by www.VegasHappyHours.com, while in my home away from home, for the launch of their new site. Then suddenly I find myself being contacted by Lexi at Albuquerque The… Continue

It's Tough to be a Pigeon



There were some things I recognized about pigeons before I decided to write this and they were:



1. Not many people like them. This observation was confirmed by the neighborhood response when I fed them. Also, my next door neighbor said she was mad at another neighbor for throwing bird seed out because "it attracts those damn pigeons."



2. Pigeons can come in a variety of pretty colors and patterns.



3. There might… Continue

Up on the roof... second test

Ok - so even if a tripod is a lightning rod, it seemed that the storms had distanced themselves enough so that I decided to go up on the roof for a better peek. What I was unable to capture was the finger lightning that was running along the bottoms of the cloud to the south, but I decided to try and capture images of planes landing at ABQ and hope for a strike in the background.



You can count, by the number of flashes from the plane, the number of seconds it was in the… Continue

Post RollerCon Depression

How do I function in this world? I just got back from spending a week in Vegas for a roller derby convention. It was roller derby heaven. I had all of my sisters there doing their derby or die thing. I met so many new amazing people. I got to hang out with so many of my friends. I presented a work shop on emergency action planning. I was so professional. It was non stop derby action. There were skating classes in the morning, Fremont street challenge bouts, scrimmaging at night. I only remember… Continue

Well, I'm back from Romania and glad to be home (my wife sent 505 Chile for me so I didn't suffer too much)

Can't say it was the best trip, didn't get to go out much and we were very restricted to when and where we could go and how we could get there and back.



This is the base we were on.

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
