I notice that my eating habits take a subtle turn around this time of year. One week it's bison stew and baked potatoes, the next I'm raiding the recipes from The Greens and stuffing feta and cucumbers into whole wheat pita halves. Last weekend my mother and I went out past Old Town to drop into the filled-to-the-gills Aquarium and Botanic Gardens (OMG!!! Baby Sharks!! LOL).…

...I think its more like a religious conversion really. Kind of like a biblical "take up your bed and follow me" moment. My husband and I went to see Bill McKibben speak at UNM yesterday. And all I can think about is how twisted our economy is. If the elementary rules of economics were true, then we wouldn't have such a demand for such useless stuff, right? In a free market economy our own deterministic forces would drive down the cost of excavation for raw materials, and locally produced goods… Continue

I was a little busy today. I shoveled a lot dirt adding some topsoil to my yard here in Houston. I am a little tired, want to finish the book I am reading and I need to rest for tomorrow's golf. It is very windy these days here in Houston and I am looking forward to playing golf tomorrow. I love to play in the wind.
I just wanted to explain my picture. I recently discovered that my high school graduating class (Albuquerque High School) is planning a re-union this year. I have… Continue

Potting soil dusting the cleavage, Norman Blake pickin' outta my speakers, fresh arugula pesto (file under Reasons to Love Your Food Processor, #792) greening up my kitchen, and a breeze from my wide-open windows blowing over it all.
Spring, you are so short, but so intensely loved while you're here.

April is Phthalate Awareness Month!
Phtha- what? Right. It’s a scary word. But toxins in sex toys are even scarier!
(http://www.selfservetoys.com) We are putting safety first. We want to raise public awareness about phthalates -- toxins commonly used to manufacture adult toys -- by introducing Phthalate Awareness Month this April. "Self Serve’s all about pleasure, and we don’t think our customers should have to worry about the safety of their sex toys," says Self Serve… Continue

I realize that I could look that information up on the National Weather Service website, but I'm wondering if anyone remembers that last time it rained here in Albuquerque? I remember waking up to heavy rain early, early one morning--that was sometime during duck hunting season, because my husband had already left the house. But has it really not rained since before duck hunting season ended? What's your last memory of rain?

You've heard 'thoughts are things', right? It's true- just become aware enough to really know what's going on inside your skull. That's the challenge. One way to monitor what's going on in your skull is look at how you feel emotionally, your state of health, and what's happening in your life.
I used to live in a place I didn't really care for, and got tired of thinking "I don't really like it here." Life is short, so I changed my locale, and now here in Quirky Burque, I've found a true… Continue

It’s wedding season – dresses are being altered, flowers are being ordered, and bands are being booked. Some old traditions will be observed and some new traditions will be started. I was married for eight years and much like my marriage, my non-traditional wedding was short and sweet. If I ever do it again, it will be entirely different. Continue
So many of the weddings I’ve been to lately are very hip affairs with trendy color schemes, the…

Last I wrote I had just taken my shot at football in high school. Bad move. Oh, I mentioned Nick Chavez. He was the younger brother of Tommy Chavez (I can't ever remember if they spelled it with an "s" or a "z"). Anyway, Tommy Chavez was an exercise nut. He held school records in strength type of exercises. For instance; he held the school record for pushups: I think it was 1,002. At one sitting. It took him an entire class period to do all the pushups. He held the school record for dips on the… Continue

I don't know how many of you have noticed, but if you have High Definition TV in Albuquerque through Comcast, there is only one local channel you can't pick up, KRQE 13, and it's frustrating as hell.
How I understand it is this, LIN TV, the company that owns KRQE, refuses to let Comcast carry the HD feed without compensation. I don't know what deals Comcast has with the other TV companies in town, but I find it difficult to believe that they are ones keeping this deal from taking… Continue

AT THE RIVER--Things go by fast on a bike. Sometimes it is hard to stop and check out that blurred speck in the trees. This is especially true when one is training for a Serious Ride. Even so, here are a couple of things I noticed on the Bosque Bike Trail this week. First off, the Serious Ride I am talking about is the Transamerica Trail, a bike route that starts in Yorktown,… Continue

Okay, where was I?
I remember, we were playing tackle football at Tingley Park. Many years ago one of the radio stations conducted a contest of sorts. You listened to the radio, might have been KQUE? Periodically they would give out clues to the location of a hidden token of some sort. Over the span of a few days someone eventually found the token and I don't remember what you did with it. I imagine that you turned it in for some sort of prize. Anyway, this was later on when I was… Continue

Adult Summer Softball
is right around the corner and somehow my favorite cousin Donna convinced me to play again. It will be fun and we might even win a few but if we don't, SO WHAT! Playing with the girls and having a beer after is all the fun I need.
She also asked me to put out the word and see if we can find a few women to play on our team. It is a recreational team that will… Continue
