Is there anyone out there that still believes art should not be part of basic school curriculum? I certainly hope not! Art – and music – can easily be part of any literature, math or science lesson. One of the finest examples of art intersecting with science is a program called Protect our Wildlife Corridors – Community Mosaic Mural. Fellow DCF member cc
, also known as Cirrelda Snyder Bryan, is… Continue

When I was a kid, running was embarrassing for me. I’ve always been an athlete, but never a small, spry gazelle athlete who could run for days. I’ve always been the athlete who doesn’t throw like a girl and could beat any guy in H-O-R-S-E on the basketball court.
I was a chunky tomboy during my elementary school years. Not the best years to be chunky, not only because of the ridicule from painfully honest/stupid kids, but also PE class and the mile run tests they put you… Continue

But apparently not our Principals...
This morning's Albuquerque Journal

Rio Grande High School Principal Al Sanchez, a 28 year employee said he was told he would be moved but decided to retire instead...
says the Journal...
Says Sanchez: "I don't want to move nowhere else."
I taught at Rio for ten years. It was a wonderful experience for me. I was a faculty… Continue

I recently wrote a column
for Local iQ magazine listing my favorite albums or 2008 (excluding jazz and classical).
I want to share it. Obviously, these type of lists say more about the listener than music within, but maybe you'll find something new. There were a handful of artists that didn't make it on my list that I feel a little… Continue

Converting Fields to Text
Summary: You can convert them to text to remove their dynamic nature. (This tip works with Microsoft Word 6, Word 95, Word 97, Word 2000, Word 2002, and Word 2003.)
Special fields have a great number of uses in Word. You already know that you can use fields to insert everything from the date and time to summary information for a document. There may be times, however, when you don't want to use a field for… Continue

Zoom past the Bosque on I-40 or any of the other bridges during winter and the Rio Grande looks gray and dormant. However, if you take the time to chat with it up close, there's color, life, motion, and sound.
Of course, the color is muted, as is the bird chatter (until you wander far enough from the bridges), but it's there. The year-round Canadian geese nap on sandbars, or drift in the lazy current.… Continue

Miss Melanie : Caught in the Act
We set out this week to catch a feral cat that has been causing chaos at BunnytownUSA. Our efforts have gone for naught with the cat getting most of the food and escaping unscathed. Today however, we caught a curiously hungry Schipperke
instead. She was released immediately and no animals were harmed in the making of this photograph, in fact, Miss Melanie rather… Continue

I went to a party last weekend and was outed as Barelas Babe.
My identity is no secret, but once people discover this, cocktail conversations head in a predictable direction. So I spent more than a few minutes last Saturday night talking with a longtime Albuquerque realtor about changes in Barelas. When you live in a community it is easier to notice incremental changes, especially if you walk it daily. For the infrequent visitor driving… Continue

I should have brought my camera with me on Friday. Our doctor is in Los Lunas and so the drive is a little epic. On Friday I drove down through Isleta Pueblo
. I love to see all of the fields. The best part is the restored marshland on the south end of the drive. In the spring it is full of red-winged black birds clinging to the cattails.
On Friday there were no birds, it was still just lovely
I drove back through Peralta. The… Continue

1. They are all business. Your Virtual Assistant will support your needs, not the other way around.
2. You’re in control. Your working relationship is based upon a contractual agreement whereby you state in no uncertain terms what you expect.
3. Professional rapport. Your Virtual Assistant is in the entrepreneurial boat, too. They work at home, market their services, prospect for clients, and provide a service just like you do.
4. Cost savings. You can hire a VA from anywhere on… Continue

A brunch was interrupted this morning as a black and white heeler mix came bounding toward us this morning as we got into the car. Excited, playful, skittish, certainly friendly - we waylaid him long enough to get a phone number off of his collar, and then off he ran, not comfortable with being caught quite yet. We followed the dog to the Ridgecrest drive median and that's where the story begins.
But lest ye think this is the typical… Continue

I sometimes think the WILD WEST is more dangerous a place to live than where I grew up (North Florida) but this N.Florida bar brawl
story with attached comments by local Jacksonvillians, reminds me how Lynyrd Skynyrd had such great material for writing their songs in North Florida. Ditto Molly Hatchett and 38. Special.
