Walkoffs, or a Bad Night for the Boys in Blue

So, I'm going to be spending a LOT of time at Isotopes Park this weekend. How much time? Well, I was at tonight's game. And I'll be at tomorrow's night's, too. And Saturday's. And Sunday's. Kind of a good thing I like baseball, eh?



Well, if the rest of the games are as good as tonight's, I'll be in good shape.



Of course, if the rest of the games start off like tonight's that might be bad. See, after breezing through the first inning, the 'Topes ran into some trouble in the… Continue

Entertainment in Old Town

I went to see Cathryn McGill sing in Old Town last night. The performance was part of the New Mexico Jazz Festival. I first heard her on KUNM talking about the festival, and was interested enough to at least check out the free performance. I was really impressed by her talent. She sang a variety of songs, mostly in the R&B vein but some jazz and blues. I found several of her original compositions compelling, especially one she wrote for her mother "The Hand That Rocked My Cradle". She has a… Continue

I'm Numb

Today Karlita and I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum on Central.

It's overwhelming---more than I am emotionally able to stand.



So I believe that I act in the spirit of Almighty God; by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord. Hitler 1924



Although I follow and believe the teachings of Jesus, I do not call… Continue

Up on the Crest

I remembered everything else: a bottle of water, my hat, my car keys, sunglasses, sun screen, my mother. But I forgot my camera. In searching Flickr for Creative Commons photos to use to illustrate this post, I came across a collection from an old friend from Arkansas (thanks, Clinton Steeds!). Albuquerque is such a "small world" town that I accidentally run into people who don't even live… Continue

And check out the height on these puppies:



Official Disclaimer. These aren't my tomatoes, but I am lucky enough to partake of them. The tomato master started with… Continue

Where in 'Burque is Adelita? (numero dos)

This journey of discovering bits and pieces of 'Burque has been so much fun. For those of you that missed my post last week, please catch up!



The best part of this has been having my daughter as a lookout. She is on high alert and makes the best suggestions for "mom's crazy project." I now realize that there are so many parts of the city she's not… Continue

I accomplished another first on my motorcycle.



This past weekend, BF and I attended the Fire and Ice Bike Rally in Grants, NM. But to get there, one has to travel along the highway. There are some side roads that could have taken, but for the most part, the… Continue

Raptors at the Rescue

When I took a pigeon with a broken leg to the wildlife rescue at the Nature Center (http://www.wrinm.org/enter.html) a couple of months ago, they had their rescued raptors out for show. I didn't get a picture of the kestrel (darn it), but I did get pictures of the great horned owl and the red-tailed hawk.…

The Perils of Conference Calls

This story is going to make me look like a real idiot, but that's never stopped me from doing anything before. I like it, though, because it makes me laugh whenever I remember it.



My working relationship is more than a little interesting because my co-workers and I deal with an outside company. The other day one of the guys asked us to set up a conference call with him. Oh wonderful, a conference call. My favorite.



At the appointed time, I flipped on the speaker phone and… Continue

Shooting Film Stills for the Movies

One of the highlights of the upcoming Duke City Shootout film competition is the "digital bootcamp" classes which are free and, mostly, open to the public. This afternoon my wife and I attended a wonderful class by film still photographer John Maio at CNM. It was a treat as we learned about different opportunities and techniques and equipment. For example we were fascinated by the sound proof camera housing (above) that is required to do film… Continue
