Took my teenage daughter to see Zombieland today downtown. We were environmental friendly by taking the city bus to and from the movie. My kid was off from school so I though it would be a cool idea to take the day off as well from work and spend it with her.
Zombieland was not that frightening a movie and it was a funny movie most of the time. Bill Murray of Ghost Buster fame was just too cool and a real treat for the adults watching this movie. I loved his house and they even… Continue
One of the great joys of the balloon fiesta is subduing the envelope as it lands. Thursday morning this one bounced several times, crashed through a fence and lay down down blocking all lanes of Osuna. A dozen drivers, thwarted in their journey, leaped from their cars and helped deflate and move the balloon to safer ground. It was handled as… Continue
**There were a number of hyperlinks to sources that, unfortunately, did not make it when I posted this... I'll try to fix it.**
To some, this line of questioning may seem naive. I am a political rookie, I confess. I'm just (and maybe I shouldn't be?) surprised by the election results and I wanted to open this up for (civilized, please) discussion if anyone's game.
The president is a Democrat. Congress has a Democratic majority.
Albuquerque had the same Democrat for… Continue
This Saturday I made my first trek to the Balloon Fiesta by bicycle. From Fringecrest, it took 50 minutes to get there, 45 to come back and I've never enjoyed the event so much as I did this time. While others were cold and in long lines for coffee, I was warm, energized, and ready to enjoy. The coolest thing: Valet parking for bicycles. Just head up the North Diversion channel, turn right at the sign, and hand your bike over to the valet. No charge.… Continue
First off: Great seats.
That's what we got for winning the DCF ticket giveaway for this show. Fourth row, dead center. I could count every wrinkle on the two performers faces if I wanted to; I did not.
This was one of the most casual and intimate shows I've been to in a long time. While I'm a huge fan of Lyle Lovett, I've never really been all that impressed with John Hiatt's recorded work.
But, both artists impressed. Sure, I know Lovett's songs and still prefer his quirky… Continue
Dogs, cats and other creatures probably don't care who is mayor. But at least one candidate has taken it upon himself to mail to registered pet owners about the benefits of his benevolent oversight during the past eight years. Good for him. Pets rock! But I guess my question is: do ALL candidates have access to this same database? If they do, awesome. If they don't, there's an equity issue here. Release them to all or none.…
I'm pleased to report that our first ever Curvy Carnival was a HUGE sucess!! We had 72 people in attendance Saturday night and everyone had a blast! The costumes were HOT and ranged from a naughty nun to a wicked Lil' Miss Muffett (insert evil thoughts here!).
Self Serve was amazing as always and the cock-ring toss was not to be missed. The flirting board provided naughty notes galore and I hear that lap dances were also aplenty later on in the evening...heh heh heh! The ever amazing… Continue

It is that time of year again. Signs that fall has arrived are rampant: hot air balloons a-soaring, green chile a-roasting, politicians a-yammering campaigning, and ants disappearing.
For years we've waged a multi-generational war on our property. It isn’t the usual exterminator/home owner battle, though. We’re more sophisticated than that – we're established some subtlety in staking out our philosophic positions of what I'll call,… Continue
You’d be surprised who has walked down Harwood’s halls. This past November it was George Clooney, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges along with director Grant Heslov and his large film crew.
Harwood Art Center, originally built as a Methodist Girl’s School in 1925 is an old red brick building that has a lot of what filmmakers call “production value” with high ceilings, old windows, and cast iron radiators. There are not many buildings like ours… Continue
This is the last week to make it to 4th of July Campground to enjoy the sugar maples turning crimson before they fall off in earnest. Thanks to Masshole for the reminder that it's that time of year. Many thanks to Celine for the camera… Continue
