The Next Slum?

a slightly stale link, but Chris Leinberger, the urban planner/development strategist involved with HDIC, has a good article in the March 2008 issue of The Atlantic about the potential decline of (recently built) autopia/suburbia. just a tad ironic that it ends up… Continue

After work ride report

After work, Colin and I met at PJ's Triumph/Ducati motorcycle dealership, where they tried to lock us in and make us buy new sportbikes before they closed. We didn't fall for that old trick. But when they told

Colin that "his" Ducati GT1000 wouldn't be imported in the two-tone

cream color in 2009 (when he planned to be able to afford one), he

almost started crying. Way… Continue

Going with the Flow -- Day Four

Waking up to my husband's magnificent huevos rancheros breakfast, cooked with leftovers from last night's steak dinner, I recalled all the times he made me breakfast when we were dating. I fall in love with him all over again. After ten years of marriage, these little smitten moments are still a daily occurrence.

It's not about what we do, it's about just enjoying ourselves in all this beauty.

Today, we head up to Hatcher Lake to do some float tubing, Yes, it is a form of… Continue

Have I created a monster?

One of things that has always worked well for me about New Mexico is the choice in clothing. Many people work on style, not so much what is fashionable, but what looks good or is fun to wear. I think that some of this is income related. We are a state of good yard sale/thrift store shoppers. Some of it is art related, even people with money have been known to lean toward the funky.

I love that people mix trendy and vintage or old jeans and fancy jewelry.

All three of my kids have a… Continue

What does Albuquerque sound like?

Baseball and mockingbirds if you ask the FreeSoundProject where I recently downloaded all my ringtones. Surely, we can round out the project database with a few more recordings of fair Burque. You know, local aural phenomena such as:

You Learn Some of the Most Interesting Things at an Interview

First I want to say that I’m not writing this to gain any favor with Z-Coil. I just want to recognize a local company that made it big.

One of my interviews on Monday was with a… Continue

Steve Stumped

I was just watching the KOB-tv midday newscast, and caught a little snippet on how sex gets better with age. There were some particulars given, such as women reporting more sexual satisfaction as they got older, and the men reporting slightly less, etc.

The young, pretty female anchor, Marla Tellez, was giving the story, and at the end, the camera was on both Ms. Tellez and the decidedly older Steve Stucker.

I have never, ever seen the guy so quiet or with such a blank… Continue

Big Bad Mamas

I have a secret confession. I love to sing. I love singing in the car, at home while cleaning the house, and whenever the spirit moves me. There’s just this one little problem - I am tone deaf. To say I sing off key is an understatement. And I’ve got the vocal range of about two notes. I would love to have one of those big powerful voices like Lola Beltrán or… Continue

That's Gratitude for You!

I'm having a hard time figuring out why I'm still angry about an incident that occurred over two weeks ago. I'm usually not one to hang onto something as intangible as emotion but for some reason I'm hanging onto this like it's some kind of treasure.

You see, for the last three years I've been organizing massage therapists to provide massage for the participants of the walk and bike benefits of the American Diabetes Association. Last year I was able to add the Junior Diabetes… Continue

Questioning Flyfishing -- Day Three

We had an epiphany. Fly fishing is a pain in the ass. Yes, after nearly seven years of catch-and-release fly fishing, we both admitted that the excessive gear, special knots, and matching the hatch is getting too fiddly for both of us. Both of us get a twinge of guilt when we actually catch a fish, even though we practice zero limit catch and release angling with single barb-less hooks.

And look at all the crap we loaded in our car just for fly fishing -- rod cases, reels, tackle… Continue

Today is Joan Osborne's birthday...WhooHoo!

Here is a 'gallery salute' to her when she was in Albuquerque at Q Jam in 2007.

Recently, I realized the sheer number of things that I carry around with me on a daily basis. And so, here is my no-holds-barred analysis of the world inside my purse....

Wallet: contains my credit card, debit card, license, library card, and a myriad of discount cards for various stores. Usually contains some amount of cash, as well as the odd scrap of paper that I scrawled in a hurry and then forgot about. Does anyone remember the… Continue

Another Day, Another Interview--I'm Very Grateful.

I am still on the hunt for a job and today was no exception. I have been quite lucky these last two weeks, I have had several interviews. Yesterday I had a second interview and this prospect looks hopeful. I have been looking for a position since September 2007—I have never had such a hard time landing a job.

I have become quite proficient in filling out all of the various job banks’ questions and I have refined my resume. I have… Continue

Beginnings and Endings

The two most important parts of a movie. The two most important parts of a marathon. The two most important parts of a book. The two most important parts of life...kind of.

Ok so life is definitely more complicated than a beginning and an end but those are the two parts the majority of people remember. Somehow, all the stuff that happened in between gets lost. Memories become blurs and time lines become irrelevant. Pero por… Continue

Swinging Back to the Left

I grew up a very devoted Christ follower and a democrat. It seemed to me that the values of the democratic party more clearly reflected Jesus' values of caring for people and the earth. Somehow though, I drifted through, for way too long, fundamentalist churches which espoused that if one were a Christian you had to be a republican. Some churches boldly taught this from the pulpit; others conveyed it person to person. The core values of the church as I knew it seemed to change from caring for… Continue
