At least six men are probable suspects according to Paula Moore, author of a new book about the murder: Cricket in the Web – the 1949 Unsolved Murder that Unraveled Politics in New Mexico. Ms. Moore was at Bookworks
Thursday and signed my already dog-eared copy. Moore is former executive assistant to the New Mexico State University President and a long time resident of Dona Ana County. She was well spoken and patient with her audience –… Continue

With the news that Trader Joe's is opening their second Albuquerque location in the Uptown mall, I thought it was time to really visualize a grocery downtown. Now I could go for a TJ's, a Sunflower Market (love that place), or a locally owned store like the Co-op, just as long as we get some healthy food DOWNTOWN. And I thought the empty lot on Central between 6th and 7th would be a great location. There is plenty of space, enough for parking and some residential units (gotta love the… Continue

I love to read the Rio Grande Sun
and all the news from Española and today I found this article about my Tio and Tia's restaurant, The Rio Grande Cafe
. I worked as a waitress there during my high school years and I'm sad to see that my cousin Becky has decided it is time to close the business now that my Tio and Tia have passed. I don't blame her, it is very hard work and… Continue

So this morning (2:20ish in the A.M.) I was taking out my contacts when I heard someone knocking at my door. Or at least it sounded eerily like it, much too real sounding to be the tv. However, I couldn't imagine anyone coming to my house at this hour so I almost ignored it but... Well I opened the door and sure enough there was someone there. Though this someone was no one that I knew. She was crying and asked if I had a phone. I handed her my cell and she immediately called 911. I stood there… Continue

...the good old fashioned mix tape?
I have just begun a new relationship, and since I'm a music junkie, many many songs make me think of boyfriend dearest. And so, tonight, I set out to make him a set of mix CDs like he's never seen. I tunnelled through my entire music collection and came up with the  songs that reminded me most strongly of him, the things he says, the songs he serenades me with, etc. etc. While committing these… Continue

Today is May Day. May Day is celebratable for a number of reasons, the first being that it's 2 months that we're here in Albuquerque and we haven't had to get "reglar" jobs yet!!!
Since I get most* of my info from Wiki
and anyone reading this knows how to click, I will only mention a couple hi-lites:
Beltane is the exact opposite of samhain on the calendar. In Ireland in the middle ages it was referred to as Céad Shamhain.… Continue

Today was the official re-opening of the Zimmerman Library public basement space since the fire that ravaged the reference section 2 years ago today. I was graduating with my B.A. in Linguistics that semester, and it was only by circumstance that my own research wasn't affected. Finding out about the fire shocked me, and made me uneasy in realizing that to some people, there is no sacredness in the idea and physical representation of institutions of higher learning.
Since that time we've… Continue

I searched Yahoo Yellow pages for business' with Duke City in their name and got 51 hits. So I printed the page and started to take off looking when I realized I didn't have a clue how I was going to do it. So off to Office Max where I bought a city map and back home where I plotted them. Now I can get at them more systematically. Here are the first 5, I don't know when I'll get around to finding more and posting them.

A bunch of cool shoes are 40 percent of plus another 30 percent off today at Dillard's.
And in case you're debating pointing out my shoe-shallowness, I'm already aware of that thank you very much.

My life has been a wild rollercoaster.
lost my mom, got in a car accident, new tasks and chores given to me at work. Friend moving off to California, and at the same time leaving me roomateless. (which for now is just fine with me!)
lots of life changes.
But just so you know, It looks like there may be a mini run downtown this weekend with more LED lightup "throwie" mayhem!
If i have my Druthers, I suspect downtown may get a little more… Continue

I know it's an uninspired title, but one with a sort of double meaning... I have spent the better part of the last 14+ years relishing in the Random-ness of this place I call home.
If you have an hour or so to spend reading all my Hyperlinks, then here's to you:
Like right now, for example. I am crunching on leftover Matzoh at my desk at work, royally f-ing off on some important TPS Reports
. Prior to this weekend I had… Continue
