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

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

Mostly Saturday mornings from sunrise until 10 AM or more, depends on the Sun.

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 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

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

my very cool… Continue

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
I'm a little antsy these days. Last April I flew out to Virginia for a bike ride and didn't get home until 8 days ago. It was the… Continue

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!

Our garden has been both a delight and a disapointment this month.
We got this melon that looks like it was grown by professionals.
This less good looking but still yummy corn.
Unfourtunately we were attacked by squash bugs.…

The first time I saw Albuquerque was during winter break of my senior year of college. My 3 year old son and I drove east from California in an aging pickup truck to check out the University of New Mexico
as a possible place to spend a few years while I attended graduate school
The two of us had been to… Continue

Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill
, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

and we're going to check it out. As promised, all car traffic on Central between Girard and Washington is gone. Free reign for bicyclists and pedestrians.… Continue

On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting
