Les Paul was not only the inventor of the electric guitar, but one of the founding pioneers of multi-track recording. Music, as we know it today, wouldn't exist if not for Les Paul. RIP!

Just got back from a morning of weeding the peppers at Los Poblanos Organics (LPO). As an LPO workshare member
in their community supported agriculture program, I get my weekly box of produce half off the regular price in exchange for 2.5 hours of work on their farm in the north valley. It's a screaming deal -- I get to meet great people from all walks of life, burn some calories and get my hands in the earth once a… Continue

Why would a widowed (October '07), new grandmother (April '09) rappel down a 210-ft, 14-story building in downtown Albuquerque on Friday, September 25 to help raise funds to support the sports competition and training programs for NM Special Olympics athletes?
It started back in April, when I was asked (as a professional PR person) to help with the pubicity and promotion for Over the Edge. The whole concept intrigued me from the start.
I've also been in a different frame… Continue

Yay! I know I've looked for Neil Young's "Albuquerque" on You Tube before, so I could post to it. I obviously haven't done that search since sometime before last spring, though.
Here you go,… Continue

My friend, he's sort of out there. Anyway, he is going to go on a tour of several cities and do a photo essay. The subject: BATHROOMS. Hopefully they all have Bathroom fan
s that work! LOL! So if you know of some interesting or unusual bathrooms in Albuquerque, please leave me a note with the address. I will compile a list and see if he sees fit to take a picture.

I was asked to help promote a fundraiser for Special Olympics New Mexico: "Over the Edge."
Friday, September 25, 2009.
Although Special Olympics was founded to train and provide athletic competitions for athletes with special needs, the organization has never done a fundraiser quite like this!
The idea of Over the Edge
is that a charity enlists volunteers to experience the thrill of a lifetime by rappelling down… Continue

TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT, look for the Perseid Meteor shower
overhead...This year's Perseid meteor shower could be even better than usual. According to NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office, a filament of comet dust has drifted across Earth's path and when Earth passes through it, sometime between 0800 and 0900 (midnight-1:00a.m. our time) the Perseid meteor rate could surge to twice its normal value.
There is one light you cannot escape on August… Continue

I’m a high school dropout
There is no question that recent news

Today I went to visit The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History with my kid. I took lots of pictures
. I find this place very interesting for a number of reasons. I truly like Einstein. I picked up a new book to read on the travel of his brain after death. Sounds strange but it is an interesting book.
I think my child should know all about nuclear… Continue

I'm sitting at the desk with a cup of coffee, earphones on listening to AC/DC ("Who Made Who?") on Pandora.com. This is one of my very favorite things to do on an early weekend morning before the world brightens and stirs.
Actually, any day that starts with music and/or a bike ride puts me in a fine state of mind. I need that these days, seeing as how my present job has me knee-deep in tediousness and miopic management foofraw much of the time. Pardon me, just a little rant, missing… Continue

Maybe because I am a parent...maybe because I had to keep the world from falling apart no matter what my breaking heart felt like...maybe because I love walking in the bosque--whatever the reason, I love this poem. The poet asks, "What am I searching for? What is missing?" Let's see if there an answer to be found among the cottonwoods.

I love the New Mexico Tea Company
for many things; for its fabulous selection of tea and tea accessories, for its knowledgeable owner David Edwards

I've been wondering when Albuquerque was going to crack Outside Magazine's annual list of best places to live. No more wondering! Albuquerque's number six on their list in their most recent issue! Totally concur with the write up w/r/t the great outdoor opportunities in and around ABQ. And the outdoor scene is just one facet of what makes the city great.
Here's the link:…

It’s hard to beat an evening of music and dance that is by turns precise, elegant, sensual, stark, energetic and playful.
The Ballet Pro Musica Festival this weekend at the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a showcase for innovative dance and music. The National Ballet of Mexico and La Catrina Quartet together with pianist Jacquelyn Helin team up to present an unusual combination of contemporary ballet and chamber music.

We're going to a wedding at the end of the month and I need an outfit. The wedding is semi-formal, and it's happening at the ski lodge of Winter Park Resort in Colorado. I have a budget of probably $100. I'm also a new mom, so baby friendly is essential, and stylish-esque would be nice. Any non-mall ideas of where to go tomorrow afternoon?
