Little did I know that New Mexico had its very own underground comics collective, 7000 BC
. The stated mission of the organization is to "provide opportunities for comics writers and artists to develop their personal styles and storytelling "voices," while promoting an understanding of the cultural significance of comic art through seminars and workshops". Pretty righteous stuff huh?

The BBC had this article
Australia's top treasury official is taking five weeks leave to look after endangered wombats. I would love to do that.

I have recently lost my dog D.J. Or, as we call her, Baby D. Her name stands for Dachsundicus Jiganticus because she looks like a giant weiner dog. Originally, though, I meant for it to mean Dutchess Judy because I thought the dog from Fox and the Hound was named Duke. Really, though, she is a full-bred Golden Retriever on her mother's side and a full-bred Basset Hound on her father's side. She has been registered as lost at http://www.petharbor.com/… Continue

Wha??? The comics are being expurgated?
Here's the not-fit-for-print comic:

Now that Battlestar Galactica has run its course, what's a geek to do this Friday night? See the Selsun Blue show at RB Winnings
this Friday night
, of course. When my husband first saw the Selsuns, he loved them so much that he swore they'd play at his wedding. Fast forward five years and my husband was the Selsuns' drummer and sure enough, I was walking… Continue

It's not just for tourists. Old Town- that place where we take our out of town friends for an afternoon stroll - is saying "Yoohoo, sailor" to the town at large. My suggested prescription for a Wednesday evening in summer: start at Seasons
with a margarita (with their house made sweet and sour - try the Hornitos version at $8). Climb down from the cantina (happy hour runs from 4-6:30) and head to the… Continue

Sorry about the long gap between postings! Aaron and I took a little getaway vacation last week. We spent a couple of days at the family cabin in Cloudcroft, NM
and then headed down to Las Cruces and ultimately El Paso for the Tom Waits concert.
Cloudcroft was a nice break from the heat. The second day we woke up to cloud cover and 50 degree F. temps! The first day we were there… Continue

Since I had the day off anyway, I went to the grand opening of Pro's Ranch Market. I got there 15 minutes before the opening and it was already insane! There were essentially no parking spots anywhere (and it is a HUGE parking lot). Then the line went all the way from the doors through some back-and-forth disneyland/airport security style lines
, and then… Continue

Tonight Eck, the Grumbeckle, and I attended the Pro's Ranch Market pre-grand-opening celebration.
We were greeted by a crowd of eager neighbors, vendors, and local VIPs, waiting to get in the front door. Among them were politicians including City Councilor Ken Sanchez, State Representative Mo Maestas, and Alan Armijo, former City Councilor and current County… Continue

I want to ride today. I want to leave work, go home, fire up the bike and cruise out to wherever. Maybe meet up other bikers or friends, have lunch and lazily hop around the city. Isn't that what the summer is for?
I want to worry less and ride more!
The feeling you get from riding is very addictive. As a passenger on the bike, I never felt the strong pull to ride. Don't get me wrong, I had a blast on the back, tooling… Continue
