I ran across a tidy little clip reel of Bugs Bunny's "Albuquerque" quotes. I have no idea if it's comprehensive, nor when the individual scenes date from, but I began to wonder if this could have been the first popular culture reference point for the Duke City. I mean, since the cartoon began in the 40's and seemingly these likely date from the 60's or 70's at the latest, what could have come… Continue

This is National Poetry Month. The Alibi did a nice piece

We don't usually do the Sunday morning doughnut thing, but I was interested in checking this place out. It is located in the South Valley Economic Development Center
and it is called
the the Zombie Cafe so how could I resist.
The drive from our house is short and takes us past Tingley Field. There were two baseball games going at 9:00 when we drove by.…

On Friday I had a brilliant idea that my husband and I should go bike riding the next morning with some family. It had been raining on Friday so I wasn't sure if it was going to pan out but it sounded like so much fun. Saturday morning came and it was still sprinkling so we decided to wait until about 10:30 to head out. By that time it was perfect, still overcast but the rain had stopped and the clouds were covering the sun keeping it nice and cool. We decided to hit the… Continue

So the lilacs and wisteria opened this past week. In Fringecrest, anyway. You can see a couple drapey plumes of blue wisteria flowerspike, kinda blurry to the right and behind my younger daughter in the pic above. And allhecksyeah do they smell good! Mostly the lilacs. I mean, I guess wisteria has a nice scent, but it's a manscent, or something-- kind of brutish and olfactorily bold, a Cabernet to the lilac's… Continue

In summer of 1948 a man gathered some friends, a carpenter, and some blueprints. In the following months he erected a beautiful home in the SE Heights of Albuquerque. Years went by, deeds transferred, and finally in late 2006 my wife and I bought his house. It was in bad shape, but we had the time and energy to bring it back to life- and we did, one project after another, restoring its original charm while adding a few conveniences. This December the… Continue

NOB HILL--Flying under the radar, a long-term contract concerning a major on-campus housing project is close to being signed.

The first phase, 864 beds, is to be erected west of The Pit on UNM's South Campus. There are many questions about this project. Let's take a look.
Briefly, what are you talking… Continue
