Wow! I've really been slacking off when it comes to posting stuff here. It is amazing just how fast time goes by.

Two a Day: reclaiming the brick

My two a day was cut short this week, or rather, it was redistributed. I worked in the back yard for four hours on Thursday instead of the customary two, I wanted it to look nice for company. Naturally, after such a herculean effort (it actually did kick my butt) I took Friday off. Here is how the week went:


Whoah it was hard to scrape… Continue

My sweetie and I checked out the brand new Cosmo Tapas, in east Nob Hill tonight. They're in the old Martini Grill space at Central and Sierra. They've only been open since Monday, but you wouldn't know it based on the food, drinks, atmosphere or service. It's a pretty smooth operation and absolutely enjoyable.

To start, we chose a couple of drinks from their mixed drink menu. My sweetie had a Huaso, which is essentially a pisco sour. Pisco is like a grape brandy, which is the… Continue

Is Email Dead?

Blackberrying, Facebooking, and twittering through life these days makes me think EMAIL may be as DEAD as the Postal Service. No one answers or writes a good juicy long email anymore...And no one it seems, actually READS a long one very carefully.

Also along these lines how is the DCF audience number-count doing in 2009?

Perusing the Pecos

I hear the name "Pecos" and it conjures images of cowboys in black and white riding between trees, watering their horses at the river's edge and squinting into the sun. It's not quite like that anymore - though you're likely to run into plenty of signs of horses - and the occasional horse itself - when you're out roaming the Pecos trails.

A few weeks ago we headed off in the morning to our trail head destination at the… Continue

Oh boy, vacation time

Finally got a little break with NOTHING planned. These are the best types of vacations for me. I'm all for a little travel here and there, but sometimes a little down time is much-needed.

Four days may not seem like a "vacation" for the M-F 9-5er's, but for me it's an eternity.

On tap for today: Maybe some yard work, grocery store, and grilling something later.

Bike Path to Balloon Fiesta Park

Interested in avoiding traffic and taking a 'green' ride to this year's Balloon Fiesta? Albuquerque's bike trail system will soon connect to Balloon Fiesta Park.

The bike trail underpasses at Paseo del Norte and Alameda Blvd. are completed. This trail provides safe north-south passage along the west side of the AMAFCA north diversion channel. If you ride by the General Mills plant when they are making cereal, you can smell the sweet scent of childhood breakfasts.

A bike… Continue

An open letter to Albuquerque

Dear Albuquerque,

Thank you so much for once again reminding me of what you are really made.

I had been feeling rather obliging to you over the weekend. After visiting Las Cruces for the first time in 14 years, I was reminded what a nice place the Burque is in relation to most of Southern NM.

Then I do two stupid things,

A: Leave my 15 year old SUV parked on the street because my driveway is filled with scooters and triumphs.

B: Forget to lock the… Continue

Dear Pompous Jerk Who Lives on Tulane

I’m not sure exactly what you were screaming at my cycling partner and I as you tried to run us off Garfield today. When you scream at people out the open window of a moving car the Doppler effect makes it difficult to understand. The only word I could make out was, “A_ _hole”.

I can assure you that we were following all the applicable statutes while commuting today. It was very early, with little traffic, as well. I can further assure you, as you deliberately swerved in front of us… Continue

Do you ever wonder why editors at the Albuquerque Journal make the news decisions they do? Do the editorials sometimes make you shake your head or throw the paper down in disgust? My former Albuquerque Journal colleague Denise Tessier and I are trying to unravel some of the reasons many readers are so unhappy with the city's only daily paper in a new media criticism blog called Please come check us out for thoughtful, informed media critiques!
