Oh Giant yard and Giant House

Almost 2 years ago my hubby and I bought this giant house on a huge lot in the UNM North Golf Course neighborhood, with the dream of it someday being Grand Central Station for us and our future children. In truth, it is ridiculously oversized for two people, but I'm a contractor and designer, and I couldn't help but see loads of potential both for our family and as an investment.

As I look out over our almost half an acre in the middle of town, and our giant basement with room for… Continue

Those yellow lights and stripey lines...

Maybe you're in a hurry most days, or you just don't think about it, or you think it doesn't affect you because you don't have children. Maybe you really need to get where you're going, and there are too many of them, and it's oh so annoying to have to be slowed down this way Every. Single. Day.

But I am begging you - PLEASE be more aware of school crossings around Albuquerque, especially around middle and high schools where there are no crossing guards.

I have 3 children… Continue

it's a buyout, not a bailout

What this buyout proves, and what has been proven time and time again in this country, is that corporations and people with large amounts of liquid assets can make fucked up, stupid decisions, and not have to pay the consequences. GWB would be more than happy to have this bailout, which is actually BUYOUT, happen - why is it a buyout? Because the Government is planning, effectively, to buy the properties, mortgages, &c. which have been tanking lending groups, banks, and investors. What does… Continue

Donate your fruit to charity

For the next few weeks we're looking to help anyone with excess fruit to donate this to the local food banks. We're offering this free harvesting service so you can help those in need. In exchange we would like to use a small portion to do a little R&D on better utilizing this food source into value-added products that can last longer than a few weeks. This way, next season we can better distribute this food and help educate and build the… Continue

artists meet up

We will be chilling at Kelly's this Friday at 7pm. Come and meet the BMG crew and talk some shop or just meet other like brained people. The last one was a lot of fun. This is also a good time to meet us and find out what the Black Market is.

Balloon Festival


My best friend and I are traveling to Abq for the balloon festival and are looking for information on the lesbian community. It appears that there are quite a few of "family" going to the festival. Maybe we should set up a place to meet others traveling for the festival, or those that live there. Looking for suggestions on what to do while in town. We did visit Acama (not sure of the spelling) during a previous trip and loved it. Would like to find more of the same.

happy… Continue

Truth wins! Honesty wins! Darren White Closes Up His Thieving Photoshop.

NOB HILL--It only took about 24 hours from the time of yesterday's post for the White campaign to take down the picture they stole off the Duke City Fix. That picture's twisted and tortured body now lies discarded in the depths of photoshop hell.

They have a new ad: same words, different pics of Martin Heinrich. This time they seemed especially careful to keep their mouse off his body. This is not to… Continue

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

My sister is one of the coolest people I know. She’s an incredible school teacher, funny as hell and is always “in the mix.” She always knows where cool things are happening. She lives outside of Burque, so it’s really no surprise that she found a living treasure in my neighborhood of Los Griegos.

While volunteering for the Lavender… Continue

In case of scurvy, eat your cactus

In times of drought and depression, my money's on the prickly pear cactus.

All over Albuquerque right now, vitamin C laden cactus fruit are ripening to a deep eggplant purple. They're called "tuna" or "cactus apple" and they taste like blackberry and melon which, when cooked up with citrus and sugar, taste even better.

I've been experimenting for years with this unusual fruit and here's my favorite recipe, given to me by a… Continue

Sheriff Darren White Stole My Picture...Then Tortured It!!!

NOB HILL--The race for Congress has taken a nasty turn. It is not lightly that I report that the Sheriff has stolen some of my stuff...really. I was watching the news at noon yesterday when Darren White's newest ad came on the TV screen. It started out with him saying, "My name is Darren White and I approved this message" or something like that. Before I knew it I was watching a picture of Martin Heinrich that looked mighty familiar. It should… Continue

Local Etsy of the Week-ByCinByHand

I never realized that knitwear could be terrifically sexy! This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller shows how it can be by wearing it with a big freakin' attitude. ByCinByHand is the seller and maybe the model? Here is what she says about her work:

'What started out as a way to keep moi busy and productive has become a daily part of life. My… Continue

Huh? Hearing Loss in the Duke City

Approximately one in every ten Americans has hearing loss. That's about 50,000 Burqueños, give or take a few thousand. Once in a while a hearing loss related question will even pop up on DCF.

Some readers of DCF may know that I wear… Continue

Abq. Horoscope Column Missed

I posted a blog entry about this earlier but deleted it until I had more info...Got the info now and must say, I STILL MISS CYNTHIA HESS'S Sunday Horoscope feature in the ABQJournal. In my personal view, "Horoscopes by Holiday" is a minimalist happy happy look at the planets. Cynthia's column had true 'heart' and wasn't always a totally sunshiney look at your day or coming week.

One of my Sunday newspaper rituals was to cut out her 'outlook for the week ahead'… Continue
