I am new to this world. My main interest is in the area of real estate. I am an agent with Keller Williams Realty and have been in the industry for about 12 years now. I am a native New Mexican. Yesterday, the Albuquerque Journal Outlook had an article that said interest rates will probably be at 4.5% for a 30 year loan next week. Today interest rates are at 5.1%. I never thought I would see these rates. Also, the government is thinking about giving a $22,000 tax credit to homebuyers. This is… Continue

Why mess with perfection?
The New Mexico State Legislature has approved funding
to develop genetically-modified chile.
Is there anything wrong with our chile now that it
requires modification? Isn't it wonderful just as it
is, delicious and nutritious and flavorful?
Genetically-modified seeds automatically become
the property of its creators.

Come on out to the UNM SUB Ballroom

For a city that recently celebrated its tricentennial, there have to be a whole lot more attractions than you'll find listed at places like Roadside America
, though it's interesting to know that our state has a penchant for Muffler Men
. Everybody knows about Chevy on a Stick, Frontier murals and whatnot, but what about the local neighborhood… Continue

I had to post another blog to thank all the amazing artists who have donated art for our silent auction show. Support your local economy and buy art from local, living artists! Not to mention, all profits from this auction are going to the Roadrunner Food Bank of NM who really need our help this year.
Many thanks to:
Jean Casson O'Neill

The first I heard of Ezra's Place was a sign in the window of Sophia's Place
on Fourth Street announcing that Dennis Apodaca (the man behind Sophia's) had opened a new restaurant at the Lucky 66 Bowl
across the street. The next I heard of it was a review on Gil's Thrilling (And Filling) Blog

Back in 1973 when I was 11 years old, I fell in love. It’s a love that has never waned. I was sitting in a movie theater here in Burque watching American Graffiti
when love found me. No, it wasn’t a schoolgirl crush on… Continue

Just curious if anyone can offer some enlightenment on appropriate sushi restaurant tipping? When out at sushi tonight we were trying to decide if we should tip the sushi chefs separately from the server? It hard to know if servers and sushi chefs share tips, especially when the chefs have a big ol' tip bucket on the top of the sushi bar.
Any thoughts on protocol? Any sushi chefs or servers out there that want to weigh in on this general or how it works at your restaurant?

This week's Albuquerque Etsy
seller (the first in a while) does that thing that I love; posts beautifully photographed product photos. The lighting, the framing, the background-bless his heart for being attentive to these critical details. Metalmoco

It's a good start to the neighborhood recycling program here in Burque, but I couldn't have my property tattooed with that f n "Q". They keep forcing it on me and I had to make the modification. Spray paint or vinyl work great. There are also some bumper stickers on the website that would cover that thing up. (click here

NOB HILL--"I don't believe it,"
I said. Lisa LaBrecque didn't flinch. She said it again. "For the last couple of years, 50 to 60 people have died of homelessness each year. This includes those whose health problems were exacerbated by living on the streets as well as those who died while actually being homeless."
I knew homelessness was a problem, but never dreamed that people were dying from it at the rate of one per… Continue

I don't think I've given Albuquerque enough credit for being home to some really smart advertising folks. But that all changed today. Driving down the street I noticed a van for Royal Plumbing. White van...purple lettering...so? Their tagline! "Where A Royal Flush Beats A Full House." How can you not hire these guys?
