I like to joke with some of the other "media" types, that while we (Jackie, Donnie and myself) are members of the "media", we really aren't. We're three people who go in each weekday morning...chit chat (sometimes too much) and then go home for the day. We usually leave the "serious" news to other people. We're you're outlet for when Britney Spears goes crazy...or Angelina Jolie adopts another child.
One thing that we have talked quite a bit about is the excitement surrounding this… Continue

I just got home from the Barack Obama rally. I am tired. I am hoarse. I am hopeful.
It was exciting to volunteer for the campaign, walking the line that stretched for blocks, encouraging people to vote early. It was enlightening to talk to people whose friends were denied the right to vote, even this early in the voting, and are having to fight for the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
It was comforting to stand… Continue

The first presidential rally I ever went to was when Governor Clinton was running for president in 1992. I was in high school, probably sophomore year, and it was between second and third session at CEC
. CEC was the way for any APS student to upgrade their ticket to a first-class high-school education- hopefully it still is. I walked from the school campus to UNM, approximately where that fountain with 13 pillars… Continue

Thank you to all who attended the CD Release Party. I enjoyed sharing "Space Travel" with you. It was good to see all of you. It also sparked an idea that I know have. I am going to start organizing Intimate Concerts in our space. We were able to fit 20 guests seated comfortably right next to the performer. If you are a solo or duo musician please contact me so we can set one up for your. It was great to be that close to the action. Photos by Susan See will be going up soon.

Last night, I accused a well-known figure from ABQ's restaurant scene of sorcery.
Human sacrifice was really the only explanation I could come up with. The deliciousness really was unholy. I'm talking, of course, about Farina's pizza crust.
Moist and chewy on the inside, crisp and perfectly browned on the outside, this pizza crust made me get on my knees and thank all the deities I… Continue

Tomorrow is the day we've been waiting for! My husband and business partner, local guitarist/composer Aaron Lewis, has finally released his second CD! Space Travel is a great grouping of instrumental guitar music, with a dreamy piano piece at the end of it all. A fitting title as the CD will take you on a journey through space and time. I'm not just biased either! Aaron will be the first to admit that I am one of his harshest critics. I do love his music though. It doesn't hurt that he… Continue

I love the sound of New Mexico Spanish. For me, it’s like a warm blanket.
The sound of it reminds me of my grandmother's tiny kitchen up north. She can ramble on, mixing Spanish words with English with ease as her hands turn white with flour over the stove. Then, of course, there's the crackling AM radio station with barely audible Spanish corridos about heartbreak and death, and the dusty dog slobbering all over the screen door just… Continue

In 2004, there was a mysterious fire in the bosque, and our fire department responded to it. Also in our bosque was a device for converting vegetable oil into biodiesel. Because of the suspicious nature of the fire, our sheriff brought APD to the scene of the crime. Sheriff Darren White ordered a lockdown of the scene because of the biodiesel converter, and two things happened: one, a media circus, documented… Continue

I'm doing it. It's happening. My house is getting a makeover and there are no TV cameras to capture it, no host to give a play-by-play, no viewing audience in the millions. The single 1940s floor gas heater I've huddled around in the winter will be gone, the ancient metal casement windows replaced, the outside insulated, the inside reconfigured.
It was a hard decision to make about eight months ago when I was considering buying a new house… Continue

I can remember driving to New Mexico from the east coast about eight years ago, heading back home to my roots you might say, and getting gas as I pulled into Albuquerque. I paid $1.19 per gallon and I was worried about how my wallet was going to stretch around the high price of fuel. It had been cheaper in Virginia. How much cheaper I cannot tell you, but I remember thinking that $ 1.19 per gallon was going to kill me in the long run. Later that year I bought a small motorcycle and was thrilled… Continue

Being in the business of tourism, I am a recipient of lots of stuff pertinent to this industry. We all know there has been a push to make big changes downtown; to create a design to bring in more big conventions and more tourist dollars. What exists now isn't enough to draw in large scale groups. The feeling is that New Mexico has so much to offer, and we are already an attractive tourist destination, but we can't monopolize on this unless we create a… Continue
