First leg of Monticello

I-25 bridge

Ditch and I rode to Elephant Butte and met with LC4Dakar at exit 83. We then rode to Monticello and were looking for some of the other guys, but we did not find them.

So we… Continue

Summer's NOT Done

Got this shot out the car window in downtown 'Burque this evening.
All indications are that summer is NOT done for this guy...
What about you?
Show us your pix, before the ice and snow arrives (or the pumpkins ripen on the vine).

Cloud Watching

As the late summer arrives I find that I love to watch the cloud formations.

Big, thick clouds full of promise and puffy fecundity. The Albuquerque box might be our most famous weather occurance but I still like my clouds

Marsden Hartley, a contemporary of Georgia O'kefffe, spent some quallity… Continue

Consolation: good coffee and good art

My day started a bit precipitously. At 6:45 my husband called to tell me that he forgot his work key and didn't have time to ride his bike home and back before his first meeting and he needed me to bring it to him. My brain was mush, 'you need me to come pick you up?' I said. 'No', he said, 'I need you to bring me the key.' 'Oh yeah, that's what I meant, I'll be right there.' I usually wake up around 7:00 anyway so it wasn't that early for me,… Continue

Filling Up at the Filling Station

The first weekend after Labor Day is always bittersweet for me, marking the psychological transition from summer into autumn. Mornings are cooler, there’s a hint of green chile in the air, and leaves begin to acquire a tarnish of gold.

On a personal note, it means that I get to reacquaint myself with the Sunport and life as a commuter traversing the friendly skies. This weekend was my first weekend… Continue

Fat Tire Cyle Shop

This shop on Montano is the only bike shop in the area that has snubbed me repeatedly when I go in there. I've been to nearly all the shops in the are: ABC, 2-wheeled drive, Coop, High Desert, Cycle World, Cycle cave, and Performance Bike. This one is the least helpful. I've heard similar comments from cycling friends of mine.

This weekend, my husband I walked our two bikes in there and they weren't all that busy, but one of the employees actually stepped around us to ignore us,… Continue

Fei's Health Cafe

Fei's health cafe. It's about 2 doors down from 20 carrots on Central, between Buena Vista and Yale.

It's unusual food, but I liked it a lot. It's not often that I can order with impunity from a menu and get vegan food. When I can get vegan food, I prefer it, although I'll go veggie if I have to. The "special seitan" is the best I've ever eaten and I was practically hanging over the counter to try to get her to tell me how she makes it. She just giggled and blushed and said that it's about… Continue

disney world

i love the fact that you can escape reality. i love where you slip into a world of magic...its nothing but excitement. the first bus ride to the park i get butterflies in my stomach. when you pull up to whatever park in walt disney world even though you have been there before, you still dont know what to expect. when you push your way through the metal thats keeping you from officially being inside the park, you butterflies turn to excitment. as you walk faster to see the people with smile on… Continue

Otakumex summary

I posted a short summary at Ani-nouto. Pretty good. I forgot to mention, the lady who ran the Immersion panel was a big fan of Azuma, which had been panned in my comments and in other DCF threads for bad smell, poor service, etc. Go figure.

The new Albuquerque anime convention "Otakumex" opens today in Embassy Suites. I'm thinking if I should go. Their websive ( bears the tell-tale marks of disorganization (e.g. no panel schedule), which drive me away. Heck it does not even say when the registration is open. But what's a man to do. I don't want to drive to LA for AX. I suppose I may check it out tomorrow, see what a small-town con is like. Maybe it's fuzzy and homely, who knows.

UPDATE: I was… Continue

A few of my favorite (burque) things

For reasons that will remain my own I wanted to spend at least part of this lovely day, early in September on my own. Leaving the house at the uncharacteristic hour of nine, I began my morning with breakfast at the Chocolate Bakery and Café’. I did not take a photograph at the café’ as the usually cheerful and friendly mood of the restaurant was spoiled by a young man (employee) with a sad little “I am hip beard-let” skulking about the… Continue

Am I the only one that thinks "Burque" is more than just a little hokey?

What is with this obsession with the name make-over of converting Albuquerque into 'Burque"? Is it an attempt to make it more hip? With it? Is Albuquerque too old, too stogy or just not cool? I've heard "Burque" described as the insecure middle-school bully making up a threatening nickname for himself.

Albuquerque is a challenge to spell and it takes up a lot of space...but hey, it's the name of the city and it is unique. What's with the need to change it and shorten it so it looks… Continue

The hunt for Albuquerque’s best Cappuccino.


Velvety-Sweet Foam and Chocolaty-Sweet, Perfectly-Pulled Espresso Shots

The sounds and taste of a perfect cappuccino have been attacking my thoughts. What caused this you ask? Well it was a story of Amy Ferraris’, a filmmaker and cappuccino lover, who recently finished a documentary on the perfect cappuccino. She traveled the United States to quench her obsession. It was on her… Continue
