bring fees to their knees - ultimate challenge albuquerque!!!

i received in the mail today a letter from asurion. a cellular phone insurance company apparently. I wasn't really interested. it looks like t-mobile has 3rd partied their cell phone protection plan which now costs me $5.99, up from $3.seventysomething. who cares? i only bought the protection so i could 'lose' my phone at somepoint after my model becomes obsolete. i won't be waiting for the next model.



everyone has "junk fees" on their cell bill. The bank is digging deeper into our… Continue

Burque Bottles

You post some things on "DCF groups" and they get lost...I put up this photograph at BURQUE BUNS, and feel it is worth a look-see right-cheer...Our rabbits dug these up in the backyard. No, we don't train them to do this but they do. They like a clean warren.





These were found in the downtownish area next to our home built in 1910 by a train conductor named John White. The… Continue

<i>Innocent as Daskalos</i>

According to an article in the AbqJournal today, the screw may have turned on infamous real estate magnate, I was only talking on my cell phone when I ran over a few white lines and that APD guy had been following me for blocks as... Jason Daskalos. He got charged a 10.00 fine for crossing the lines and possibly his probation will be lifted as well...Isn't talking on your cell phone while driving also illegal?



Any-who...My wife and I were outside at sunset tonight… Continue

Decisions

After many many arguments with my buddy concerning history's greatest singer/songwriter Bob Dylan, we both accept his undeniable greatness and magnitude. Having said that we both discussed albums that were mind blowing and listed tracks off blonde on blonde, then highway 61 revisited. Boom! it happened minutes roll by filled with sentences "How in the hell can you argue this"? and "Dude its a freaking masterpiece!" Then we began to mention the current geniuses of our time Radiohead, same… Continue

ABQ RIDE:Poetry on the Bus

It's (been) in the mail and today it came to me...My special envelope from the City of Albuquerque/ABQ RIDE...Am I a LOSER ? Am I a WEINER?...Is this rejection letter number 47,000 or is my path golden to ride the bus routes with my words on their inner fuselages?



I open the envelope (hey, nice specially bright YELLOW return-addie label!)

with inhaled and bated breath...



And the answer to all my prayers is...

kind of like Bob Dylan's new movie, NOT… Continue

Towards a New Politics in Albuquerque...

After reading yesterday's Albuquerque Journal,I'm done. I'm done with local politics in Albuquerque. Instead of following the Club 7 issue, the newspaper decided to focus on Mayor Chavez. The mayor seized on the opportunity to criticize the bar--in his typical tough guy, law and order manner. It was almost the perfect story as he gears up for his re-election campaign. It seems like this controversy could not have been better crafted for him.



Where was the commentary from the… Continue

How Many DCF Web Geeks Does It Take To Get Screwed?

Eight. Apparently at Nob Hill Bar and Grill last night if you weren't paying attention, a 20% gratuity was added to your tab (if you bought a dinner).



First I asked some of my fellow DCFers. Greg didn't recall if it had been added but mentioned that he had added a generous tip himself. Ester checked her bill and did not see an added gratuity and a third guy (whose name I don't recall, sorry dude) had… Continue

A place called Seferino's opened down on Central and I took the Wife there for lunch.

(why did she close her eyes when I was taking her picture?)



It's a very clean place that plays Mexican music I can't understand, it's nice background noise to me. The menu was loaded with lots of yummy stuff and prices were less than… Continue

UPFRONT

A few days ago, I had a blog entry about the big downtown drug bust and through a curve into the mix by also mentioning the new series in our AbqJournal entitled, UPFRONT. That's just how my mind goes when 'blogging'. Today in the paper is more news about the bust with Mayor Marty now 'closing Club 7 along with a new and maybe best so far, UPFRONT...but this blog entry is all about being up front...



Fact is, I thought I understood the new AbqJournal… Continue

LOBO Football on your TV?

If Orion is raising himself up off the eastern dawn horizon (and indeed he is), can football season be far behind? And CAN I WATCH THE LOBOS on my tv set this year? I have been scanning the AbqJournal Sports section hoping they would once and for all clarify this all important issue (esp. since LOBO tix seem a bit pricey this year-yes, another thing that will cost more this fall esp. the Texas A&M game)...but no articles as yet.



So, I call the man listed in the AbqJournal… Continue

Green Drinks

Every month, green-friendly people meet at One Up (previously Carom Club) downtown on the second Tuesday for happy hour. I've been the past three months - gets a good mix of local government, alternative energy, green building, etc. folks. Last night we had around 10-15 people, but the month before drew around 30+.

So here's something other than a tale of my driving woes or party days or my bird obsession.

I am fascinated with infectious diseases and I've spent a career catering to that fascination. It's probably the one subject I know most about in this world, and that doesn't even compare to others who have also spent many more years than I have following the bugs. Throughout the years I've watched new diseases get discovered, bacteria get harder to eradicate as they promiscuously toss about their… Continue

Solipsistic!

In the pursuit of learning and exploring this Duke City Fix system I really enjoy the setup and people on this site EXEPT!!! What the hell is with the profile section listed "What I'm listening to"? Not that thats the aspect I'm concerned with, but these people who drone on and on about the value and importance of there musical knowledge and there vast music collection which surpasses everyone else's . Sentences that start of with "To list my music collection would take years and would blow… Continue

Helping Joy Junction, Helping Myself

It’s always good to “get out there” and do something good for your community. Even if it’s super hot outside and the work is a little bit more rigorous than you’re used to. There’s just something about the feeling you get after you’re done, knowing that you got off your ass and instead did something positive for others. Add to that the fact that this certain gratifying feeling can get addicting, and it usually makes it easier for you to roll out of bed that next Saturday morning and venture… Continue
