Full Moon & Mars

JUST-in from>FULL MOON AND MARS: Friday night's full Moon is the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year. It's a "perigee Moon," as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than other full Moons you'll see later in 2010.

But that's not all. Mars is having a close encounter with Earth, and on Friday night, Jan. 29th, it will join the Moon for an all-night-long conjunction.

May be moving to Albuquerque soon

I might be moving to Albuquerque in Sept or Oct. I have wanted to live there for many years and now finally I might get the chance to do so. If I come there I will be working near the intersection of I-25 and Osuna. Can someone recommend a good apartment complex near there. I will probably live in an apartment for 9 months to a year and then my wife will join me and we'll buy a house. Thanks

It's been a while since I posted that question, and the opportunity to move to Albuquerque… Continue

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "The Single Mother’s Dance"

From the Two Whos

Yun’s kids were with their father’s family up in Taos skiing and left the single mother home alone for several days right after the New Year. Missing her kids has become part of the her life now. No matter what she is missing her kids.

I am looking for more detailed photos of the Franciscan Hotel. I have several postcards, but would also like to find interior photos. I have looked at both libraries Downtown and have not had much luck. Is there anyone who knows another place to look?

Lunch at Cocina Azul

12th & Mountain NW--It is hard not to have noticed the interest in this corner location ever since the announced closing of the Sunshine Cafe over a month ago. The discussion here on the DCF has generated 59 replies! Now Cocina Azul has opened in the same spot. MaryAnn and I stopped by for lunch last Sunday.

It was sort of an accidental visit: we were hungry and there it was. The building still has those wonderful windows that look out… Continue

Morning Fix - Who You Calling Fat?

• A 'Fat Tax,' a surcharge on some level of obesity, is being proposed for NM teachers outside of ABQ as a way to help fund their health insurance.

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Pajama Party of the Two Whos"

From the Two Whos

The night before Cece's surgery, the Two Whos had a pajama party, so Yun can drive Cece to her surgery at 5:45am the next morning.

When Yun arrived, Cece noticed her new hair cut:"hey, it is perfect for you!" Yun said:"Maybe you could show me how to hot roller my hair after I take a shower?" Yun just came from her dance class.

Cece got the beauty equipment out, and within minutes, we… Continue

I am intersted in learning more about making resin cast and polymer clay jewelry. I currently make natural gem jewelry but I want to be more unique. If anyone knows where I can take a class or someone who is interested in teaching me I would greatly appreciate it.

Currently she is the assistant coach with the Spoken Word Team at the Santa Fe Indian School. She is also working on a couple of screenplays, one of which is about… Continue

Special Male Body Image Edition Brickhouse Betties Munch!

Greetings All!

I'm pleased to announce that the speaker for our next Brickhouse Betties Munch will be Tony Carson the topic he will be speaking on is:

The Image of God: God made us all with a positive self-image, but others (family, friends, culture, media) convince us away from that image. Spirituality (whatever that means to the individual) is a means to rediscover that "Image of God" as God intended.

Tony's Bio:

Tony Carson is a… Continue

Once upon a time...

Countries were shaped like stars... or so says Mi Casa Theatre of Ottawa, Ontario. I had the opportunity to see their show "Countries Shaped Like Stars" (standing in the back of a packed house on a cold Friday night) and was electrified by the hour I spent in their world. Mi Casa is a truly poetic theatre company. Filled with brilliant verbal images, whimsical music and lyrics, strung together in absurd flow, but never feeling as though they are too out of reach. They are accessible. They are… Continue

Let's Give Local too

I get why everyone wants to give to Haiti. I get it. Haiti was already in the crapper, and now thousands, hundreds of thousands homeless. It's mind boggling. I even have a personal connection to Haiti-- my friend's mother who is 84 lives there, and my friend left Haiti just 2 hours before the earthquake hit. Last I heard she was ok, her home was still standing... but geeze, she's 84. My friend's brothers were going down there to try and get her out. Not everyone is so lucky. I get that... It's… Continue
