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.

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

BBC's 'Talking America' and Fernando C. de Baca

New Mexico makes world news today not for the green chile and 'fun at the state fair' but rather for inflammatory comments made by Fernando C. de Baca...Here is the link to the BBC online story called LATIN CLASS which came online September 19th and is causing ripples (or waves!) because of what is written about Fernando C. de Baca's comments regarding Hispanics… Continue

Up against some tough competition including "Dexter", Brian Cranston wins the Emmy for "Lead Actor in a Drama Series". That 'drama series' is BREAKING BAD, the second season of which is currently being filmed right here in Albuquerque.

After receiving the award tonight, Brian Cranston (the 'dad' on Malcolm in the Middle) thanked his "cast and crew in New Mexico" and stated that he would decorate the Emmy statuette with red and green… Continue

I. Will. Not. Miss. Empty. Bowls. Again.

There are two events in Albuquerque that I am determined to go to every year and fail at attending almost every time; Project Share's Empty Bowls and the Annual UNM Print Sale. I made it to the Empty Bowls event once, I think it was three years ago. I've never made it to the UNM Print Sale. This afternoon I decided that I would mark my calendar… Continue

Where do you go????

Ponderosa, a Journey to the Tower.


This morning I woke up early to get everything ready for a ride to Ponderosa. I usually prepare everything the night before, packing my camera, batteries, snacks, water, GPS etc. But I don't load it on the bike until the next morning. The sun was just making its way up behind the… Continue

Solar Fiesta Saturday - Fact Finding Mission

It's Saturday, Sept 20th, 13:00 hours. I am on a mission. Before me stands Highland High School. As a veteran APS graduate I have the urge to flee. Instead, I drop $20 for 2 classes and admission to this year's Solar Fiesta.

The SF is like a small carnival where all the games cost $5000, but you can win the ability to survive any upcoming apocalypse in style. Less… Continue
