Albuquerque - Residence of Nobel Prizewinner

Reading an article about the internet and it's potential to forestall conflict, I stumbled across this page. Nobel literature prize winner Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio said in a speech in Stockholm earlier today that, if we had had the internet in WWII, maybe "Hitler's criminal plot would not have succeeded - ridicule might have prevented it from ever seeing the light of day,"… Continue

516 Art and Irony

Yesterday a friend and I went to view an art exhibition at a little space in downtown. Now I must admit i was really heading in there to scope the space for future plans i am conjuring up. However, I was also very interested in this current exhibit entitled, "Speak Out: Art, Design & Politics."

Anyway, when I arrived I was met at the door by a gentleman of sorts informing me that as I… Continue

[AUTHORS NOTE: It is traditional that the Author posts the following reprint on December 6th, the day before December 7th, the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

This year seems a bit different than the last few years that the Author has made this post. The nation is falling into an economic decline unlike any other since the Great Depression.

The Author is, and has been, in a thinking and reading mode. He has not posted in near a month. As he stands in…

Realtor having fun

This morning I had an appointment with a potential client to look at a really wonderful home. I arrived 10 minutes early so that I could turn on the lights and make sure the home was tip top. The seller of the home left so that I could show it for them. I then waited for 15 minutes, no client. I called and they were getting everyone into the car and would be there shortly. After another 45 minutes still no client, I called again - no answer. I called again after another 10 minutes and left a… Continue

Red or Green or GMO?


The 2008 New Mexico State Legislature approved funding for development of a genetically-modified chili pants and seeds. And, in the Nov. 4th General Election, if you voted for the Education Bond - you unwittingly endorsed programs to implement production of these genetically altered and patented crops. That means, if you grow a plant, save the seeed and plant it again - You OWE Monsanto (or the corporate patent holder of that seed)

Client Q&A - low back pain and massage alternatives

Q: Dear Karla: I've always enjoyed my massage SESSIONS, but getting off the table afterward is excruciating, and can take up to five minutes just to make it into an upright position. Still, I've tolerated that for the pure joy of the massage itself. However, after the last one I had (in late October,) not only was getting up extremely painful, I could barely walk for the next two days. (I always follow the instructions to drink lots and… Continue

New to blogging

I am new to this world. My main interest is in the area of real estate. I am an agent with Keller Williams Realty and have been in the industry for about 12 years now. I am a native New Mexican. Yesterday, the Albuquerque Journal Outlook had an article that said interest rates will probably be at 4.5% for a 30 year loan next week. Today interest rates are at 5.1%. I never thought I would see these rates. Also, the government is thinking about giving a $22,000 tax credit to homebuyers. This is… Continue

Geneticaly Modified Green Chile....

Why mess with perfection?

The New Mexico State Legislature has approved funding

to develop genetically-modified chile.

Is there anything wrong with our chile now that it

requires modification? Isn't it wonderful just as it

is, delicious and nutritious and flavorful?

Genetically-modified seeds automatically become

the property of its creators.

Landmarks invoking memories of an imagined past

For a city that recently celebrated its tricentennial, there have to be a whole lot more attractions than you'll find listed at places like Roadside America, though it's interesting to know that our state has a penchant for Muffler Men. Everybody knows about Chevy on a Stick, Frontier murals and whatnot, but what about the local neighborhood… Continue
