President Luna

A little voice interrupts me as I wash dishes, “Mom, I’m the President.”

I look over to see my three year old standing in kitchen, “Hello, President Luna. Nice to meet you.” I receive a lipstick smeared smile as she scampers off to her room wearing her usual attire-camisole and panties. Not quite presidential in appearance but definitely in attitude. The Washington Press would have a field day. The headline reads, "President… Continue

Sit. Stay.

I posted this for a short time last weekend and then pulled it because I wanted to think about it for a while before posting again. There have been quite a few blogs and discussions about Albuquerque's future and growth, each one prompting me to wonder if I feel good or bad about it. It's a conflict in my head.

I moved here in March, 31 years ago. I was very disappointed with the lack of green, the lack of (what i knew as) ethnic food, the sand that blew in my face, the lack of… Continue

Release your Inner Geek!

*Martini Mike circa 1980? (I can't believe I'm sharing this picture!)

Each day on the way to my day job I pass a La Quinta where I once lived. I thank God for the brain capacity to have continually upgraded my living situation and lot in life. I speed towards my technical career at a Fortune 500 company. I think, “Gosh I’m smart”. (OK, I don’t… Continue

NW Loop Road: Taking Us for a Ride

The infamous Northwest Loop road is back on the minds of engineers, developers and politicians in the metro region. The NM Dept. of Transportation sent a letter to area stakeholders announcing a public meeting that will be held in Rio Rancho on Feb. 10 to discuss planning and construction of the NW Loop Road.

The proposed right of way heads north from I-40 (more than five… Continue

The Cider Chronicles

Okay, this is not as epic as the title might suggest. It's really about one cider in particular: Tractor's Pear. As the dry British import hard ciders become increasingly hard to find, I've been looking for an alternative. K Cider is no longer at Jubilation. Strongbow is a tag below an empty shelf at Talin Market. It's been years since I've seen even a hint of Blackthorn on tap. It's easy enough to track down the… Continue

Jerry Dragoo of Albuquerque was recently featured on a PBS show about skunks. It was fun seeing him discuss skunks under the bright blue skies of New Mexico on the tube. He has a webiste about skunks called, ... And there's Jerry Dragoo on Google.

I'm finally getting to move into the Burque! I've been living in Rio Rancid for about 8 years now, and am so happy to be moving to our new place up off of Tramway. Rio Rauncho just doesn't measure up to the Burque.

I've found several nice contractors: Quetzal Mechanical, who serviced our old furnace and nearly threw up, it was in such bad shape. We had him install another one. He's great, super professional, and most of all SHOWED UP WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD. Imagine… Continue

Some book reviews for January

Third Chapter

by Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux $25)

In The Third Chapter, the renowned sociologist, Dr. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, offers a strong counterpoint to the ambivalence that shrouds our clear view of people in their third chapters. She challenges the still prevailing and anachronistic images of aging by documenting and revealing the ways in which the years between fifty and seventy-five may, in fact, be the most transformative and… Continue

This Valentine's Day, Buy Local and Organic!

What kind of a statement would it be to give your sweetie chemically processed flowers with a carbon footprint the size of a wildebeest, grown by impoverished workers compensated little for their efforts? Now that's a romantic basis for your heart-felt sentiment! I might embellish some, but it's true that most of the flowers you purchase from traditional florists are grown near the equator in Africa or Latin America utilizing chemicals that may or may not even be legal here in the States. Worse… Continue

New Mexico still not ready for Gay and Lesbian Couples?

And is not ready for unmarried heterosexual couples either, for that matter. The domestic partnership bill is on life-support. Which means if it were my partner, I could not visit it in the hospital without bringing legal papers to allow me access. The argument against seems to come down to traditional values and religious beliefs. I can't do much about countering someone's religious beliefs, other than to point out they… Continue
