My Personal State Fair Survival Guide

There's a reason I don't go to very many first run movies and when I do, I go to the matinee. There is no matinee at the state fair. With a $9 adult admission price, I have to choose my days carefully. Right now, the first ever Bluegrass Day on opening Friday looks pretty cool. Local heroes such as the Saltine Ramblers and… Continue

Can Lawmakers Please Get Their Heads Out of Their Butt...

I have my Google Alerts set on many topics but obviously one is set on fat & obesity. I get a daily alert with between 20 -30 articles from across the internet that speak to fat as a subject. So it’s a topic that’s not going away. Over the past 6 months at least 1 article read like a campaign speech and it’s made me physically sick on more than one occasion. It has become a practice on insanity to listen to this rhetoric.

Lawmakers in many states believe it is a good idea to ban… Continue

Jason Daskalos goes to JAIL

No one wants anyone to GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL without passing GO but occasionally there is someone going there who might just be deserving of some 'downtime' or shall we say a retreat of sorts.

Albuquerque developer and man-in-the-news, Jason Daskalos, will go to jail for TWO DAYS. 13 of his vehicles will get the boot for a time.

Here's a link to the full KOB News 4… Continue

Neil Young's "Albuquerque"

With the change in seasons, I found myself listening once again to this old Neil Young tune and contemplating the crossroad's nature of our fair burg. It is fun to travel beyond 'burque and always good to return again with new perspectives. Too bad Neil didn't ask the red or green question back in the day; apparently fried eggs and country ham were more to his liking.

Aerobics are DEAD!

Although this goes against what most of the idiot trainers out there promote. It will help you get out of the gym faster while taking more fat off.

Question: I have a question that may or may not pertain to diet. I started working out again at a local gym in January I try and go 2 to 3 times a week and spend 45 minutes doing cardio and an hour doing the workout room but by the time I'm done I'm so tired and sleepy I have to fight sleep driving home. Is there something… Continue

McCain and Palin in Duke City

While driving on I-40 near Holbrook, heard on the 770 AM yesterday that McCain is going to have a rally in Albuquerque next Saturday. I was kinda curious to check what the fuss was about, but the remainder of my sanity intervened.

Pajarito Mesa, The Freeway

Today being that we celebrate labor day this weekend I decided to take the DR for a ride.DR visits Pajarito Mesa

My goal was to reach Pajarito Mesa, and ride the area most of the day. But to get to Pajarito and reach the dirt, I must leave the confines of the congested suburban city. I ride a dual sport bike so I don't have to trailer my bike, so yes I ride to my… Continue

As my way of ushering in September and a new job, I checked out Rocco Castellano's boot camp. I'd seen his column in Local iQ and read a few weeks ago that he had relocated to Albuquerque and would be conducting his boot camps here. I've been intending to check one out, but didn't make it until today.

Um, so, ouch? Between exercise such… Continue
