Local Etsy of the Week-ByCinByHand

I never realized that knitwear could be terrifically sexy! This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller shows how it can be by wearing it with a big freakin' attitude. ByCinByHand is the seller and maybe the model? Here is what she says about her work:

'What started out as a way to keep moi busy and productive has become a daily part of life. My… Continue

Huh? Hearing Loss in the Duke City

Approximately one in every ten Americans has hearing loss. That's about 50,000 Burqueños, give or take a few thousand. Once in a while a hearing loss related question will even pop up on DCF.

Some readers of DCF may know that I wear… Continue

Abq. Horoscope Column Missed

I posted a blog entry about this earlier but deleted it until I had more info...Got the info now and must say, I STILL MISS CYNTHIA HESS'S Sunday Horoscope feature in the ABQJournal. In my personal view, "Horoscopes by Holiday" is a minimalist happy happy look at the planets. Cynthia's column had true 'heart' and wasn't always a totally sunshiney look at your day or coming week.

One of my Sunday newspaper rituals was to cut out her 'outlook for the week ahead'… Continue

Music videos, ladders, teenagers, rotten food, and Mondays, and guitar lessons

Music Videos, What I would really like to work on all day. I know have my promotional materials for my new cd space travel. The cd is in my hand and I am working now on full promotion. Getting it into local stores and online first. Then radio stations, and finally stores outside of NM.

Ladders my video making will be interupted as I have to return a ladder.

Teenagers. Everythings fine in school mom as long you don't check up on me and find out Im failing half of my classes… Continue

BBC's 'Talking America' and Fernando C. de Baca

New Mexico makes world news today not for the green chile and 'fun at the state fair' but rather for inflammatory comments made by Fernando C. de Baca...Here is the link to the BBC online story called LATIN CLASS which came online September 19th and is causing ripples (or waves!) because of what is written about Fernando C. de Baca's comments regarding Hispanics… Continue

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston Wins Emmy

Up against some tough competition including "Dexter", Brian Cranston wins the Emmy for "Lead Actor in a Drama Series". That 'drama series' is BREAKING BAD, the second season of which is currently being filmed right here in Albuquerque.

After receiving the award tonight, Brian Cranston (the 'dad' on Malcolm in the Middle) thanked his "cast and crew in New Mexico" and stated that he would decorate the Emmy statuette with red and green… Continue

I. Will. Not. Miss. Empty. Bowls. Again.

There are two events in Albuquerque that I am determined to go to every year and fail at attending almost every time; Project Share's Empty Bowls and the Annual UNM Print Sale. I made it to the Empty Bowls event once, I think it was three years ago. I've never made it to the UNM Print Sale. This afternoon I decided that I would mark my calendar… Continue

Where do you go????

Ponderosa, a Journey to the Tower.


This morning I woke up early to get everything ready for a ride to Ponderosa. I usually prepare everything the night before, packing my camera, batteries, snacks, water, GPS etc. But I don't load it on the bike until the next morning. The sun was just making its way up behind the… Continue

Solar Fiesta Saturday - Fact Finding Mission

It's Saturday, Sept 20th, 13:00 hours. I am on a mission. Before me stands Highland High School. As a veteran APS graduate I have the urge to flee. Instead, I drop $20 for 2 classes and admission to this year's Solar Fiesta.

The SF is like a small carnival where all the games cost $5000, but you can win the ability to survive any upcoming apocalypse in style. Less… Continue

I complained about having to drive through the construction mess a few months back. I tried a few of the route suggestions left in the comments when traffic would come to a stop but there was one comment I liked in particular. So I did something about it and made the move to the North Valley. I found a small, 100 year old adobe casita that I fell in love with and now live 5 minutes from work.

No… Continue

The Author is in a particularly busy point in what masquerades as his professional life in the Land of Underemployment. This struggle to “work harder for less” has drained away time and mental resources from reasoned questions and economic analysis.

But his brain has not shut down entirely. All week he has been asking the question: "What crashed the financial markets so fast. "Through which gate did the Vandals enter?”

The financial decline has been festering for a long… Continue

Non-profit fundraisers - what has worked for you?

I volunteer with a local non-profit that seeks to address hunger issues w/ homebound population. At a recent Board meeting, we started brainstorming 'marquis' events to budget & plan for in '08.

There was a wide range of perspectives on events that can be effective for fundraising. One individual recommended a golf tournament because another chapter of this non-profit made $400k off of one tournament (can a NM golf tournament raise this much?).

If you've planned,… Continue

Self Serve won the NAWBO Tough Cookie Award 2008!

I am so proud of us... and grateful to the Northern NM chapter of the National Association for Women Business Owners. A wonderful customer told us about this great opportunity a couple months ago. NAWBO created the Tough Cookie Awards "to recognize and honor majority women-owned small businesses in New Mexico that have overcome unusual hardships to… Continue

An Opportunity for Photographers, Pros and Ams

I posted about this on the events page, but I am afraid it won't be seen until it is too late for those of you who are interested. Wildlife Rescue is an incredible organization that takes in, rehabs, and releases the hurt or orphaned animals brought to them from all over the greater Albuquerque area. I used to rehab orphaned quail, pheasant, killdeer and chukars for WR, but I am no longer a volunteer with them, since the Board of Health frowns on me… Continue

These Dreams of You

I used to be quite a dreamer. Not a daydreamer. I like the waking world and am content to see it the way I do, rather than as I wish. No, I used to be quite a dreamer in sleep. And I often remember great details from dreams. Even 35 years later, I remember those hermaphrodites, not because of their penises and large breasts, but for their great wings. That was the same dream with the giant dipping birds -- just like the toy, only huge and alive. Someone in that dream said to me, "we call those… Continue

A New Mexico Spider

Spider from Mars?

Who needs fake Halloween spiders when we've got such amazing REAL ones here in Albuquerque?
This little fellow (or mistress) was enjoying the morning breeze out in our front yard this morning. [See nighttime photographs in 'comments'] Apparently, there are still plenty of 'summertime' insects around, despite autumn officially arriving this weekend.
