Thanksgiving marks my first full year of going vegetarian. Don't worry, this post will not include the horrifying PETA video I received earlier this week. I'm not that much of a Debbie Downer on this "glorious" day of gratitude our country celebrates with balloon parades, football and eating a bird. However, this day that is so focused around food is an excellent time to appreciate sources of food and truly be thankful, or at least aware, about the… Continue

NOB HILL--Tim Prythero's show "Roadside Souvenirs"
at Exhibit/208 is almost gone. Last chance is next Saturday from 10a.m. to 4p.m. If you are at all fuzzy about what Prythero's work looks like, then you have never seen it, for it is unforgettable.
He does still life constructions of what is in your messy neighbor's yard. Or what is being stored in some vacant lot of your childhood--dust… Continue

As a licensed massage therapist and neuromuscular therapist
, I treat many people who have been in auto accidents. Many do not have MedPay. I've attempted to explain to clients and friends the benefits of having MedPay on your auto insurance policy - it costs very little and can provide a LOT of treatment options and benefits should you be in a car accident. And the following article explains a lot of that, very well.
As the end… Continue

I continue to wonder why?...
The City partners with Walgreen's for a $5 discount when you purchase the $25 card. Once again, city doing it's job to support another box store. I understand the money you pay will allow you entrance to sites around town, but do I really need a plastic non-green friendly "q-card" to cover my entrance fees?…

Bill Richardson's Soccer Jacket
I just had to take out the cell phone camera and snap a shot of this neary new
soccer jacket bearing the name of our state's Gov. Bill Richardson
. Did he outgrow it? Soccer no longer his thing? Could be a collector's item but I left it on the rack for the next lucky shopper to snag.

SAN MATEO BLVD. SE & BLIGHT
Why is San Mateo Blvd. SE blighted? Why have some of the lots remained vacant for so long? And just Why hasn't anybody really developed this strip of land between Zuni Rd. and Gibson Ave.? I don't know.
But I'm trying to find out.
Hello everybody this is my first post!
As a first year grad student at UNM's School of Architecture and Planning, I've taken on the task of finding… Continue

complains that the Lobo fans just aren't there; can't sell out the stands for all the football games. The same is true for Lobo basketball, despite the "draw" of the Pit. Turnout for the only other games in town are also sporadic, with the most consistent being the Isotopes. But according to Mayor Marty and the City Council, all is good and growing Downtown, the only part of Albuquerque that seems to really matter to them.
Somehow everyone who doesn't go to see the… Continue

NOB HILL--A week ago Thursday I met a family on loaded touring bikes in front of my favorite bike shop, Two Wheel Drive. We spoke briefly. The man was in a hurry to leave. I went inside the shop, and they were gone when I came out. Two days later on The Duke City Fix, Mary Tafoya posted a discussion titled "… Continue

OK, I know that all sorts of computers in the sky know my searching and browsing history, but this is getting ridiculous. I was recently watching the News Hour or BBC news or something, and saw a segment on Somali piracy. They had on some British captain recounting the experience of having his ship taken over by pirates like 10 years ago. He mentioned they showed up at his cabin wearing balaclavas, and damn if I didn't know what those were. So I… Continue

I want a grandbaby. That is no secret. Even folks that don't know me know I want a grandbaby. I see babies everywhere & want them. My eyes glaze over. I can't exactly explain it but it is like what I have seen other women go through when one day they see a baby somewhere & suddenly have to have a baby. Right then. Usually the women are a lot younger than I am but I suddenly truly understood what they had been saying. My good friend had a baby last year but that baby's grandmother hasn't… Continue

Arizona Governor, Janet Napolitano

Two years ago I happened on the first Biennial Southwest (2006) art show by accident – I was at the Albuquerque Museum to look at the Rembrandt etchings of beggars

My trek this weekend to the… Continue
