[Mr. H / Mom Ham the very first day we got her. She looks just like Señor Cuddlepuffs]
Señor Cuddlepuffs was the most recent Fancy Russian Dwarf Hamster addition to the MacKenzie Clan.
When I was a freshman in high school we received two of the FRDHs from a friend of my Mom's who originally told us that they were either both male or both female. They were supposed to be a gift to my little brother but he wasn't really interested… Continue
I went out last night for a ride on my own. I really should take my camera with me, stuff it in the saddle bag; so that when I pause to rest I can take pictures of the scenery. I usually go out in the late evening, so that I have about a half hour of light before the night rolls in. And living as far west in ABQ as I do, the sunset is gorgeous. On a clear evening, the skies are blanketed in pinks and purples and oranges. Evening rides are the best and the traffic is light to none, but the roads… Continue
For me, great movies stick in my head for weeks after I've seen them. I like to chew on them for a while in my head to fully digest the themes and underlying meaning. There Will Be Blood, starring Daniel Day Lewis, falls into that category. It's a profound saga of family and greed centered on one man's search for oil in the American west, and I've been chewing on it for a couple of months now.
Each year, right around the time when the Rolling Thunder motorcyclists make their way into the nation’s capital, I roll out of town with a bootful of books, migrating back to Burque for the summer. This time I journeyed back with my history buff and computer geek son, who is (as they say) “transitioning” from high school to college. Here… Continue
Off of a non-descript part of Fourth Street in the North Valley, is a tree lined street where a hidden paradise exists. My cousin Soledad lives on this street and the most spectacular sight awaits you when you walk through her house and into her backyard. What you see is an explosion of color all around. It is a garden paradise.
Almost every year around this time my cousin, her husband Joseph, and son Joachim, host a party in celebration of… Continue

Awww, you'd have had to been there to know what that sounded like lol. BROADWAY BROADWAY BROADWAY! roflafagus!
Anyways, me and Sarah have been working on our Summer To-Do List.
We went to the JFS interview and I pretty muchy botched that. I had the forms filled out and stuff happened and in the end they were covered in brake/power steering fluid so I couldn't turn those in. Apart from looking completely irresponsible by filling them out in front of her and having a loss of… Continue

Giacomo Zafarano and Desiree Telles perform dips while taking cues from Joseph Gonzales.
What does it take to transform the basement of an old fraternity house on UNM's campus into a rollicking dance hall? A well tuned body. . .of talent, that is.
Local dancer and independent producer Joseph Gonzales, who recently performed in Copelia and Seasons as one of the… Continue

KOBTV's chief meteorologist, Larry Rice, was fired in a Friday morning phone call (5/23/08). According to Rice, he will receive no severance package, just unused vacation time, and the station would throw him his 'personals' in a box. GEEZE what did the guy do or not do?
After all the recent changes and 'goodbyes' [Carla Aragon, Cynthia Izaguerre, et al] on our local tv scene, this instatnt transition of a knowledgeable weatherman persona seems a bit brusque to say the… Continue
Simple Interest is the rate you will pay over any given amount of time for any given initial amount. Math 129 from college, Math 100A, or even the 7th grade should have reviewed all of this for us. It's simply a quick way of calculating how much worse you could be in debt (with the exception of taxes, of course). But can the same hold true for other subjects?
Say, for example, in relationships?
Interest in a person; is it a function of the initial amount of attention you… Continue

This Saturday I had the pleasure of going to the Erna Ferguson Library. It is a great library for those who are interested.
While I was there, someone decided that since I have a United States Marine Corps bumper sticker that I am a villain of the highest order. I returned to my mini-van (used for baby hauling, not baby mauling by the way) to find a canary yellow note under my windshield that stated F#@% You Murderer! Of course they did not censor the F word as I did, being a war… Continue
