I was in a meeting this weekend and the term Web 3.0 came up. It threw me for a loop. I’m still trying to figure out how to incorporate Web 2.0 into my life. I'm maintaining 4 blogs, a Twitter feed, membership on 4 social networks and now cyberspace is hurling towards Web 3.0
? (Not to say anything about staying on top of old-fashioned Web 1.0 activities like… Continue

It's Pancake Sunday! Been awhile since we've had a breakfast o' flapjacks, so I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping we still have the Snoqualmie Falls pancake mix. What restaurants in Albuquerque make good pancakes? Anyone? Anyone?
Oops, and flapjacks
aren't really pancakes. Thanks, Wikipedia.
I have a bone to pick, and hopefully that bone I seek to pick won't be (a), MINE, and (b), plucked from the side… Continue

I come from the Duckwater Shoshone and Southern Ute nations. I was raised on the Southern Ute Indian reservation in southern Colorado; I consider that place along with the Pyramid Lake Paiute reservation in Nixon, NV my two homes, my origins. Because of the strong connection I feel towards place, I feel I am a child of both water and the desert. Perhaps this is one of the reasons I have chosen to make my home here in Albuquerque. I am grounded in… Continue

Riding has become a passion and an addiction. I love riding. Before beginning this post, I reread some of my earlier blog entries and remembered the fear and excitement of riding.
And boy, have I come a long way!
Last summer I continued to ride my bike into the fall and winter months. I ride more than I drive, even when it's cold and yucky outside, the attraction to my bike is never ending. I did longer rides, got the bike on the freeway more often and basically went… Continue

How would you like to spend your eightieth birthday? Think about it. Yours may turn out to be as remarkable as Jean's and her husband's.
I have been seeing Jean around the neighborhood for the past 2-3 years, mostly at the gym but also at neighborhood association meetings and other civic gatherings, not just listening, but demanding answers from her representatives. At the gym she is not a gym socialite but an ardent, focused exercise enthusiast. Yet she seems to know and is known by… Continue

It always rains at least once during the State Fair and then again at least once during the Balloon Fiesta. When it rains at the State Fair, it’s better than when it is blisteringly hot, however the moisture does bring out the olfactory worst in the livestock milieu.
I’m just not as excited about the fair this year, and… Continue

It doesn't help that under the best circumstances, I still hate the whole process of buying eye glasses. First comes the dilated eyes for a 'prescription' which is only valid for a year. Then comes the 2 for 1 sales
where you go in and find that the only glasses for the cheapo price really and truly suck. No really, the $38.00 glasses wouldn't suit a mummified monkey.
Oh yeah, don't forget to add in the SCRATCH resistant lenses, only $29.00 on the first pair; $19.00 more for… Continue

You try to distract me with CD’s, DVD’s, and TV,
Trying to hide my potential
Trying to make me small
But that just shows how small you are
To go so low as to attempt to destroy my thoughts and feelings
As if I am your play thing.
People are afraid of the power you have
Yet because of you
Do not know of the power they have
I have had enough!
You think you are at the top of the food chain and I
Am at the
But in… Continue

PIE TOWN, NM--A day and a half is about all the vacation that a weekend can hold. You leave home Saturday morning and get back Sunday in the early evening...a short and sweet 36-hour adventure. And in this Land of Enchantment, the journey is as important as the destination. Thank goodness for that...because our time in Pie Town was reduced to an afternoon by the time driving and camping were figured in. Four of us started out in two vehicles about 10… Continue

An empty bowl can indicate satiety or starvation. In these tough economic times, many Burqueños face tough choices, including empty bowls. Project Share
, a soup kitchen located in southeast Albuquerque, takes on the challenge of filling these empty bowls six days a week with the help of many community organizations.
Each year Project Share holds a fundraiser called… Continue

I just finished reading La Bajada Lawyer by the local author and lawyer Jonathan Miller. The book was well written and did not stick to a simple plot line.
For anyone who likes a mystery that includes politics, local scenery with color, and the law this is a good book to read. I found a copy on the local author’s table at the Barnes & Noble bookstore outside the mall. I like the fact that Mr. Miller has strong female characters who clearly show intelligent.

I went to the fair today. Just across from the 4H animal exhibits under the big red roof, I saw what I thought was a Tom Thumb Donuts stand. Yippee! My heart sang an aria. Closing in on the booth, I noticed that it was actually a "Tom Toms" Donuts. Hmmm.... okay. Is this like one of those 7-Eleven versus 7 To 11 things?
No matter, we got in line. On approaching the machine, I noticed that it wasn't one of those cool Tom Thumb spirals.… Continue
