I'm trying to work on my bird list database queries to accommodate the new year... what I call my Y2.008K problem, but my head is too fuzzy this morning... so I'm doing this instead.
Finished the second Daniel Abraham novel weeks ago and can highly recommend it - I can't wait for the next two "seasons."
OK, enough goofing off. Back to the code mill.

Jesus Babbling Christ! Another year got away and I haven't gotten around to making any resolutions. Its about damn time we all get with the program and made some resolutions that we can keep. Here is my list of recommendations for 2008. (I plan to make good on all of them.)
- Get drunk more regularly.
- Eat more pizza.
- Gain 17 pounds. (Natural follow on for the last two, eh?)
- Drive faster.
- Swear a lot fucking more than I do now.
- Vote for Tom…

i cant wait till this year ends. it was one of profound loss and sorrow. in june, my father in law passed after a five year battle with prostate cancer. while we never were able to leave a bitter part of the past behind, it was still sad. though my wife was able to reconcile with him after many years of estrangement, he would not allow me into his hospice room. from this i learned that i will forgive much easier real and perceived transgressions… Continue

Simple food jam-packed with flavor and a nice tall glass of a Belgium Abbey-style Ale are what make these blustery days of winter a bit easier to bare. This Chipotle paste is a base for many dishes, including the Chutney listed below. Use it in sauces, stews and soups for a an extra kick of flavor. The Chutney is a great accompaniment for wild game, pork and poultry.

I've always enjoyed the Alibi's witty and well-written restaurant reviews, but this week's
really caught my eye. It's about a Downtown pizza shop owner who delivers pizza for Pizza Hut in his spare time. At least for now..."He says he likes comparing his superior pies to theirs and spilling their dirty little… Continue

I'm sure the very young grow weary of hearing about the "good old days" in whatever context it's offered. Well, I'm sorry, but I'm going to do it anyway. Sometimes folks need to know what came before and what things were like before they arrived on the scene.
My family moved here in 1951, just a couple of months before I was to begin the seventh grade. We arrived on June 25 in the middle of a heat wave. The daytime temperatures rose to 105 degrees every day for two weeks. We thought… Continue

Poetry & Beer has moved.
Well, it's official (sort of). So on Thursday we went by the District to square away some business and make sure we were ready for January 2nd. The manager said, "___________ and ________________ said you were done after December."
Well, that was the first we'd heard of it. So, after 2 years, Poetry & Beer was kicked to the curb and we didn't even know.
After talking with one venue we checked out another and we had another venue by 10… Continue

It's 54 degrees in practically balmy Philadelphia. WTF. God I love this city. And now I'm on my way to Sephora - nyah, nyah.
Made it out of Chicago yesterday by the skin of my teeth - total winter chaos, makes me appreciate New Mexico even more. However, I'm spending New Year's Eve in Baltimore, one of my favorite cities. Then I'm watching the New Mexico float in the Rose Parade before I watch USC kick ass at the… Continue

The Albuquerque Tribune might
have a shot of coming back. Or it might not. A story from last week's Trib
says the investing company who is looking to buy the afternoon paper is more confident than they should be.
A spokesman for the Tribune's parent company, E.W. Scripps, however said the process wasn't that far along. Continue
