Conflict Of Time And Interest

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Everyone!

I am glad that it is summer because I get to house sit a great deal. It's like people paying me to take a vacation from family and probably the only opportunity I get to catch up with friends.

I have been house sitting for my old friend Christine and she extended her days through Tuesday, the day after Memorial Day.

Last weekend I went to the Celtic Festival with Sarah and her friend Erin. I got a sunburn on my neck but found out… Continue

Wild Wild West

You ever have one of those days when everything goes wrong? The elevator at work decided not to work. My office is on the third floor and since my knees were screaming at me today, it was a chore having to drag stuff up and down three flights of stairs. I had to go to Costco for supplies in the pouring rain. The… Continue

Duke City's Last Drive-In?

The Sunset Drive In, Off of Isleta and Arenal, in the South Valley, may very well be the only nearly intact drive-in left in the duke city area (I hear there is one working one up in Farmington, and a few other places.)

Perhaps its just Nostalgia, but I remember some pretty good times as a kid going to a drive in and watching a double feature! I'm pretty sure thats how I caught the Return of the Jedi, I think thats where I caught back… Continue

Monument in Our Backyard

Since moving to New Mexico I have traipsed around the state, landing at such exotic locales as White Sands National Monument, Bandelier National Monument, El Malpais National Monument, Fort Union National Monument and the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (a personal favorite). Yet it took me years to cotton on to a monument we keep stashed away in our… Continue

The Most Peculiar Dream I Think I've Ever Had

It's 3am, and I just had one of the strangest dreams of my life. I need to take this down before I forget it.

I was in the home of DCF's own Jason and Spring, which in this dream had a garage that opened directly onto the kitchen instead of the driveway. In this garage was a grand piano, on which the two bloggers kept a framed picture of me of which they spoke endlessly ("Oh, we had dinner by the piano last night, right next to your picture!"). I mean,… Continue

Albuquerque Etsy of the Week-PaulaM

a.k.a. Paula Manning-Lewis, she is one of DCF's very own local artists who sell on Etsy. My favorite part of Paula's Etsy profile is her description of her life here in Albuquerque. She has written a wonderful passage about how her work relates to peace on earth enduring for future generations but the part of my brain that is… Continue

SCARE EASY: Evolving to the Next Level

You just can’t look out of your corner window without hearing the sounds of nature or trains or music. There is a new album and song out by my favorite Southern via L.A. band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. He has re-formed (for a time) his original band from Gainesville, Florida, called MUDCRUTCH. Track two is a powerful song called Scare Easy. I find my little “inner rocker voice” singing it over and over. Scare Easy may be one of the best… Continue

Too Few at Salvation Blues

Mark Olson will be on his way to Europe soon, and I hope he holds on to the appreciation of the small crowd at the Cooperage last night until he gets there. He arrived here on tour after traveling through the deep south, and was most appreciative to be back in our dry climate (for personal hygiene reasons, among others). Boris McCuthcheon was scheduled to open for Mark, but he didn’t make it down from Santa Fe.

Touring in support of his latest release “Salvation Blues,” Mark opened… Continue

My Ten Favorite Things About Albuquerque

Campaigning for Congress has taken me all across Albuquerque and the rest of New Mexico’s First District. I’ve met some great, some interesting and some eccentric people along the way. And, I’ve gained an even deeper appreciation for the place that we all call home.

After some thought, I’ve put together a list of my ten favorite things about Albuquerque – and, I’d love to get your thoughts in the comments. So, without further ado (Hat Tip to Kelly for the correction!)…

Chick My Bike!

The History - About five years ago, when the then-boyfriend (now-fiance) and I started dating, he spoke about his love for motorcycles and how he had been riding for years. Mind you, at that point I was a very sheltered woman who never dared to get onto a bike but had a strong lust for the 'biker image'. It seemed like a dangerous lifestyle and in my head when I thought of bikers I thought of macho men on these big bikes that vibrated between their legs. To me, the image is seductive so… Continue

1940s New Mexico Video

My favorite line: "New Mexico was admitted to the Union, as recently as 1912."

The video goes wonky during one of the more interesting parts, anybody know where that open pit copper mine was…
