Hey young and old urbanites, I wish to address an issue that so many of my downtown friends and clients bring up... "We need a quality, full scale grocery store Downtown!"
It has gotten to the point in the last l5 or so years of active redevelopment of the urban core that we have HIT THE WALL with our progress! Buyer's come to me wanting to move downtown and many end up buying elsewhere because of access to a reasonable grocery store. Or, they buy downtown and want to sell a couple… Continue

I don’t consider myself a jetsetter, but from time to time I get to leave the country on business – I’ve just returned from a 10 day trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and am still somewhat jetlagged. Add being jolted out of bed… Continue
Thanks to the tickets I won here on DCF, my husband and I went to the Willy Porter show last night. It was an amazing show! Willy Porter is an incredible musician, talented, inspiring and funnier than hell! I haven't laughed so hard in years. He made me cry, laugh and just plain sit in awe of his talent.
Michael Chapdelaine opened the show, as usual, he put on an awesome show! We have seen Michael perform several times in the past and have… Continue
A couple of years ago I switched my boys to a new league for playing soccer. We had been with another league but I just got tired of the antics - and found that Zia Futbol is a great place for my kids to have fun and learn the game.
And while spring soccer usually involves some cold games and practices (it was SNOWING during our last Friday practice!) we can usually count on some gorgeous days as well.
Considering we had snow flurries here in the Q two days ago, it's just a bit too early, yet I couldn't wait even another weekend to start my garden. Chili and tomatoes will go in pots, so I built a waist high garden today for the herbs. It's four foot square. I laid screen over the wooden slats at the bottom, then a piece of cloth, then two inches of pea gravel, six inches of garden soil and one inch of… Continue

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Some call the 16 missing Albuquerque women, the forgotten women. They have been missing for years, and after some were found buried on Albuquerque’s West Mesa, elected officials are calling for action.
Whew, we finished freshening up the website and there's more to come, but for now, we've got a new design by Mary Lambert, some new photos, and best of all (for us) and hopefully easy (for donors) some Paypal donation buttons. Just testing the buttons before we went live, we got about a dozen donations! This is so good!
The calendar is the same as before -- it's a Google calendar updated right from the… Continue
Just reading this powerful piece is itself a "Pilgrimage"...a search for meaning, for significance. This poem has eyes. It sees beyond headlines. It caresses the human face of Truth. It will follow you home.
Albuquerque poet Elaine G. Schwartz lives with her husband, Daniel, and Purr’l the Postmodern Pussy Cat. Her work, best described as a tapestry of place and political imagination, has appeared in numerous publications including… Continue

Being relatively new to ABQ, can someone tell me the pros and cons of frozen vs canned hominy for making posole? I've used the frozen, and remember the "aroma" of canned from many many many years ago when it completely turned me off. Would it be more acceptable to use in posole, or just easier?
We are so thrilled to have been featured on channel 7 news' "Project Economy" last night! All thanks to a blog post here on Duke City Fix! I couldn't figure out how to imbed the video, but here's a LINK TO THE VIDEO.
Of course, I gave a plug to the DCF, thanks again to all the great people here at Duke City Fix that have given us such an awesome outlet for publicity!
They didn't mention it in the story, but don't forget,… Continue
Picture driving during the rush hour. You are on Yale, going south, and you want to make a turn on Coal (it's one way, you can only turn left.) The traffic coming from the opposite direction is relentless. As usual, they disregard the yellow light, and keep flying through the intersection up to the moment (and sometimes beyond) when the light turns red. If you are trying to make that left turn, you are S.O.L. I've been caught behind the timid who sit there, paralyzed, and end up waiting for the… Continue

I had yet to actually post a blog post on my profile here, preferring to just send people to my personal blog instead. But I felt like the birth of the bicycle boulevard was worthy of a first time post.
As shown in the photo above, I saw a bunch of markings on Silver Avenue south of UNM.
This is one of the pavement markings for the new Bicycle Boulevard system which has been talked about for months. These markings, along with… Continue
