It all started with some chutzpah.
It started after reading “True Colors” by Anthony Haden Guest –one of those books that would change my life. It didn’t change my life because it had some anecdotal philosophies, or Oprah’s Book Club inspirations. The book was simple -it was the “He Said She Said” of the Neo Expressionist Movement in Greenwich Village in the 1980’s. I was inspired, empowered, I believed in the raw potential of collective activity –the thoughtless actions that snowball into… Continue

at least twice a day, I cross yale at silver avenue, on my way to work and school and home again. I don't think it's too
far a stretch to say there are hundreds of people who cross yale at this intersection everyday. and it's dangerous
. the worst hours are right around lunch and a half hour on either side of 5 p.m. at all times of the day and night, though, many drivers exceed the 25 mph limit by at least 10 to 15 mph. people on foot also have the dodge the constant stream of cars… Continue

The lively discussion a couple of weeks ago concerning the re-striping of Lead and Coal was great. It seems most people supported the idea of a dedicated bike lane, but some were unconvinced that turning these streets into two-lanes (with a lane for parking) was a good one. The bottom line for me is this: we all pay taxes for roads, so why not make these streets more pedestrian friendly? If you need to zip around town in your car, use the freeway. These streets are in a residential area, and… Continue

I had a memorable visit to Toronto once. The b&b where I stayed was in a neighborhood that still had a lot of old world-style charm. There was a bread shop just for bread. A cheese shop just for cheese. The proprietors knew their stuff and provided customer service in a way that a large conglomerate store never could. That's the feeling I get stepping into the Man's Hat Shop on Central downtown.
A few months ago I said, "Enough with the… Continue

One of my many activities here in Abq is the local SCA
group of Al-Barran
. It's a fun game, a fun group of people, and there's always something interesting going on. The things I love about the game fulfill my crafty & history loving nature. As a result of my participation in the game, I do a lot of historical costuming - mostly of Han and Tang China (my personal favorites!). I have also dug into some history and made things… Continue

A routine trip to the co-op
today turned up a few exciting discoveries. The first was fresh, wild-picked morels
, as they are indeed called where I grew up) tempting me from the produce section. It's been a solid two decades since I last tasted these delicacies, and I still remember that flavor. Would that I could justify the $79.99/pound pricetag!

So in Houston today one of the big topics is the fact that gas is about $3 per gallon. People are having conniptions over it. Never mind that gas is a relatively small part of the cost of owning a car.
I will give credit where it is due. The following was posted by someone here in Houston as he presented a simple analysis of what the increase in cost of gas means to an average driver.
Here’s another point of view. Gasoline prices are a tempest in a teapot (a… Continue

Flat-Brim Hats all the rage…
What is it about flat brimmed baseball hats that has lead to there continued popularity in the urban fashion scene? They are not very comfortable, they look a bit silly, and they cost more than most baseball caps. They are on the heads of rappers like Jay-Z and 50 Cent, and they sit atop the crowns of punk rock kids and skaters alike. The flat brim phenomenon is breaking down barriers between genres, races and class lines. But why,… Continue

Just a warning for those driving hybrid cars...I'm not saying this will happen to everyone and its not really a big deal, but it just happened to me.
I got a notice in the mail that my registration for my car needed to be renewed. Nothing special there. But along with the renewal notice was a requirement for an emissions certificate. I own a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Emissions certificate? My car is off half the time -- how am I going to get a emissions test done when the car keeps… Continue

My non-profit (Sacred Wind Communications Community Connect) is desperately in need of good used computers for our low-income Navajo students who have no money to buy their own systems. Sacred Wind operates a free computer lab on the Navajo Reservation at the Huerfano Chapter where we teach people of all ages about computers, the Internet, email, etc. This is the only place most of these people have access to any computers. We've had:
