I love spring and the flowers it brings. This is a Clematis my sister gave me after I admired her plant. I bring it indoors during the winter to keep it from freezing and it rewards the pampering with big beautiful blue blooms in early spring.
Enjoy and Happy Spring!

Albuquerque, New Mexico – The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and the Mid-Region Council of Governments have designed a unique way to get students interested in the idea of using public transportation. Swaying young adults away from their personal vehicles is a challenge, and Anderson Advertising Marketing Promotion (AAMP) students are working tirelessly to show that alternative forms of transportation are both eco-friendly and more cost effective. AAMP is collaborating with… Continue

Back in early February, I composed a little blog post that never saw the light of day. I'd dragged myself into the Urgent Care one morning after spending five straight days with a fever above 101. Satan had taken up residence in my entire respiratory tract (ever had bronchitis and
a sinus infection?), and my immune system needed help. So I went. And sat. For a long time. (For the record, my PCP, while generally pretty good, is closed Fri-Sun. This was Saturday.)
The post I… Continue

So what is the deal with the painfully obnoxious new bus advertisements here in Albuquerque? If you live here, chances are you have seen the double length city buses sporting casino, fast food and used car lot ads printed directly on them. You may have seen the city bus covered in a gigantic full vehicle “wrap” promoting diamond jewelry. At first glance I was slightly taken aback as I stood at the bus stop gawking at the jumbo bus covered in casino poker chips and roulette wheels. “Wow,” I said… Continue

Martineztown holds a special place in my heart - not because I have ever lived there but because it is where my mother’s story begins. Continue
According to one source:
Martineztown started when families in the 1800s drove their herds east to the sand hills for summer grazing and camped.…

This week finally feels like spring. This winter was really long for me but now I am feeling very springy.
Our Apple tree is in bloom

(I originally wrote this for my Austin-centric blog because...people need to know. If I got any of the chile facts wrong, blame Google.)
Hi. I'm a New Mexican. I can't help it, and I hope that's ok with you. Hailing from a state whose entire population is on par with that of Austin and it's surrounding cities, there's not a whole lot of us statistically speaking. Also, I think a whole bunch of us have moved to Texas because I keep… Continue

Loving the City's Pollen Page
, with daily pollen counts for the East and West sides.
Much better than a bloody scratch test!
This season, Eric and I have thought we were getting sick at least a dozen times, only to realize days later when sick never "blossomed" that it was just allergies.
Today for example? Mulberry and Ash. Damn them by name!

A New Year's resolution is one of those fleeting things that disappears with the snow in late January. Or if one is lucky and dedicated, the resolution might hold up until Valentine's Day.
Whether it's losing weight or exercising more; spending more time outside or fixing that pesky plumbing leak; or a thousand other things both large and small; New Year's Resolutions just seem vanish with the coming Spring.
So this year, I… Continue

It’s not Six here in ‘Burque’ (doesn’t rhyme with ‘turkey’), it’s definitely Two.
The madness of it all came to a head today. Here’s my tale: I met Paula
through Duke City Fix. Though I was (and am) wary of all relationships generated online (if not all relationships period, but that’s another story altogether), I dug her art, she ‘friended’ me, and our emails were refreshing. When she had an opening at Factory on 5th,… Continue
