Millard Fillmore, 13th President of The United States (1850-1853) assumed the presidency upon the death of Zachery Taylor. He was the last President of the Whig Party. Most historians consider him the worst President in History, but not me. If it weren’t for Millard Fillmore, chances are, I would be a…Continue
Albuquerque is turning into quite the brewing hot bed these days. A new entry has arrived on the scene: La Cumbre Brewing. The location is just a little bit hidden in a mostly industrial area on Girard just…Continue
3rd run. Is it always the 3rd thing in a line of things that is the hardest? Or maybe it was just the heat? The gym was heated to about 70-75 degrees! HOT! It was even warm while I was stretching, soaked in sweat. Afterwards I went out into the dark, cold morning air and it felt refreshing! I'm not complaining - I am grateful that I have an option to get my run back in a safe, comfortable environment (with the bonus of visiting with my friend). I do believe that treadmill…Continue

I just posted a New York Times article on Facebook that described the use of iPads in the classroom. What a great idea! Only problem is that there aren't enough APPS for them yet. But wait! Soon there will be numerous learning APPS for iPads for children and adults.
Think about the way this could revolutionize learning worldwide! All we would have to do is force the price of the device down to affordable levels by buying mass quantities. Think about the ways this could continue to…Continue
I ran. I slept. I woke up the next day sore in places I hadn't felt in over six months! I didn't even run very far, or very hard, but the inevitable soreness was there, like an old school mate that I never liked all that much but had in all my classes. The funny thing is I haven't been totally inactive for 6 months. I am swimming more than ever, cycling a moderate amount, strength training (okay - only once a week), teaching low-impact senior aerobics twice a week, and doing other…Continue

I'm a triathlete. I have spent nearly 20 years pursuing triathlon in my own little corner of the world, and only this past year have I called myself a triathlete. I rarely make it in the top three in my age group, but usually make the top 50% in the larger races, and top 10% in the smaller ones. So - your slightly better than average wanna-be who never had any real genetic talent as an athlete, but who always has had a fierce sense of determination and persistence. I envy those "natural"…Continue
You want to tell people about hiking on White Mesa. You want to describe what it looks like. You use words like "views," "panoramas," "vistas" and "pretty." You mention the natural springs bubbling out of mounds, the crackling layers of minerals and how the ground around the trails is actually alive. None of it does…Continue
I have this odd habit of remembering the first time I encounter new words. More than meet-ups with new faces and new places, the circumstances surrounding my new word encounters are inscribed on my brain’s memory card.
Take this word:…Continue
