Removing your address from those "Redplum" wastes of paper (mailers)

RedPlum is the face-name of a company called Valassis, they are responsible for those grocery store circulars that you do not read and what keeps those businesses from advertising in newspapers with content. To get your address off their list you have three choices:

by mail

From Point A to B

I have been riding to work the past couple of days. With each ride I learn something new. It's amazing.

But I think I am jinxing myself by assuming I am jinxing myself - if that makes any sense. My ride yesterday morning was great. I had no problems and I was excited about my progress. But going home, I stalled twice as I was coming to an intersection (no biggie, the lights were red so I just started the bike back up!).

This morning, my ride wasn't as fluid. I downshifted… Continue

The Santa Fe Wine Festival

This weekend my husband and I will be heading up to El Rancho de Las Golondrinas "The Ranch of the Swallows" for the Santa Fe Wine Festival this is our favorite wine festival I think it must be the posh location, because there is a decided lack of people seeing how drunk they can get on their entrance fee. In fact we find this event to have just the right number… Continue

How to Choose a School in Albuquerque

Over at the Albuquerque Livejournal community, there is an interesting thread on how to pick a school, and what determines good schools. The conversation has not quite degenerated into private vs charter vs public. Okay, that's a total lie, but I still think it's worth a look. And input, from any fixers on lj.

I'm no link spammer

I see my announcement post has been removed...fine.

I just want to say that I am no link spammer, my previous post about the Times Square Deli website was a legitimate ask for advice.

I am genuinely frustrated by Google's refusal to acknowledge these two sites. It is completely impossible to find the Times Square site on Google, because they haven't indexed it at all.

On fickling Google and sandwiches

I recently got hired to design a website for the Times Square Deli Mart, right next to the Ho-Ho's across from campus, the corner of Yale and Central.

For anyone who hasn't eaten there, I can't recommend it enough. The people are great, and the food is better.

A few summers ago I went to New York for a while, and I can honestly say that between that trip and the opening of Times Square I was in some sort of weird sandwich… Continue

RIP Old Cottonwood

We knew it was coming but after 8 years of keeping our fingers crossed, a major limb of our backyard cottonwood tree started to fail this weekend and was resting on the electric line. We had hoped to get one last summer out of this crazy upside-down octopus of a tree, hacked carelessly over the years by the PNM folks to keep it out of the electric lines above. The result was a lopsided hazard that has been slowly dying for the last several… Continue

Carnage of Signage

Much has been made of the recent political campaign sign chaos. Combined with the usual We Buy Homes, I Fix Brakes and we are having a Yard Sale , this was the perfect storm (will this expression never end?) of signage carnage. Not to mention the raging inferno of the court battles lending us these instant classic headlines: 10 Signs 10 Trips to Court, City Zoning Inspector's Car Windows Smashed . The horror.

Before the next swathing of… Continue

It's apricot season in Albuquerque. Whether it's you, your neighbor, or your friend, chances are there's an apricot tree in your life laden with overripe fruit this week. Now.
