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

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

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

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

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

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

BRIDGE BLVD. & 2ND ST. SW--One mile south of here, over between the bike path and the river, is one of the most jaw-dropping sights of the urban landscape: a five acre "garden" of broken glass. And like any grown man, I thought that it would be the perfect spot to take my eight-year-old grandson...especially one who has been taken everywhere in the city from the A

There is a place we go when we hear a language we don’t understand, not just in passing, but when it fills the room and we can’t just move away. This experience brings a rare and blessed silence to our linguistic mind, which is otherwise compulsively occupied with providing a narrative to our moment-to-moment experience. The suspension of linguistic chatter sharpens our senses for visual and other clues about what is going on in the present, and opens the door to a dreamlike… Continue

Shortly after I moved to Barelas, I discovered Tingley Park
. With two little ones, Tingley Park was a far enough walk away from home to feel like an adventure and close enough for us to make a quick dash for home in case we needed to.
There was also the bonus of Tingley Park’s location across the street from the Rio Grande… Continue
