The Morning Fix

  • So the Albuquerque Journal has an iPhone app. Other than continuing their idiotic paywall policy, it actually is an improvement over the visual travesty of the paper's regular web site. I especially like the fact that, when you select the "more" menu, you can go straight to the comments section. Pure entertainment and paywall free.…

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Dr Oz, Cycling and Rehab"

From the Two Whos

Yesterday, I pumped up my bicycle tires and put my bike on the trainer and got ready to get on the bike for the first time...but by then I was exhausted! My shoulders were so tired that I determined I would never be able to pull up and maneuver on my spandex cycling shorts.....and believe me....that is a chore! So, I iced and rested and determined that today I would ride....except last night I was in… Continue

The Morning Fix

  • There's been quite a bit of discussion lately at Joe Monahan's blog about the Rail Runner. The opponents seem to hate the fact that its operation is heavily subsidized, which they seem happy to talk about as they drive up and down NM's heavily subsidized road system. How about we put a toll booth at the end of their driveways and make 'em pay to…

It's been a while

It's been a while since I've been on DCF. Ironically when I first moved to ABQ I was talked into creating my profile here and was pretty hesitant to do it. Well here I am almost 3 years later in the Duke City. The person new in my life who talked me into it is now one of my closest and very best friends. I have never been more grateful to have met her. She is truly one of my very best friends now and I met her right here in the Duke City. Along with that I have met many new people and have made… Continue

The Morning Fix

  • This bill makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. So obviously it is completely doomed to fail.

Sweet endings

Alas, the Tricklock Revolutions International Theatre Festival has wrapped up another year and we must simply wait until next January. But they saved the best for last.

"One" was truly one of the most magical, memorable productions I have seen in a very long time. Few companies so deftly use sound, movement, lighting and acting to draw us into an… Continue

A Proper Title Eludes Me, So This Will Have To Do

Tonight we'll be taking delivery of a new old used desk. A guy named Archie (I think) from Thrift Town on Menaul offered to bring it to us since the desk is not disassembleable (I doubt that's a real word, actually, unless it is once it's published, in which case I deem it open source; have fun!), and therefore has not a hope of fitting into the Yaris.

The desk at which I'm currently sitting is a cherry veneer executive-style… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Richard Oyama... What Is Richard Doing In Albuquerque?

Do your friends far away ever wonder why you are living in Albuquerque? It is hard to explain to an outsider. This poem will make you smile as your head moves up, down, and sideways. It probably won't help your friends much.

Born in New York City, Oyama has a Master's degree in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. He lives in NE Albuquerque.

Authors Note: In September 2009, at the invitation of Bob…

The Two Whos on life's little things -- "Life is Like Going Shopping "

From the Two Whos

Yun's sons want a couple of small pets that they can take care of. They thought about getting a couple of beta fish. So, they went shopping. Walking inside the pet store, they were drawn to a big bird cage in the middle of the room. Inside, there were several parakeets chirping and dancing.... The boys attention changed from fish to birds. They want to buy the birds instead of fish

She was… Continue

Full Moon & Mars

JUST-in from>FULL MOON AND MARS: Friday night's full Moon is the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year. It's a "perigee Moon," as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than other full Moons you'll see later in 2010.

But that's not all. Mars is having a close encounter with Earth, and on Friday night, Jan. 29th, it will join the Moon for an all-night-long conjunction.

May be moving to Albuquerque soon

I might be moving to Albuquerque in Sept or Oct. I have wanted to live there for many years and now finally I might get the chance to do so. If I come there I will be working near the intersection of I-25 and Osuna. Can someone recommend a good apartment complex near there. I will probably live in an apartment for 9 months to a year and then my wife will join me and we'll buy a house. Thanks

It's been a while since I posted that question, and the opportunity to move to Albuquerque… Continue
