You know how there are always things you swear you’ll never do? Like in the late 70s it was “I’ll never wear platform shoes and a polyester disco suit.” In the 90s it was “I’ll never get a cell-phone,” followed about 5 years ago with “I’ll never get a cell-phone with camera and text messaging.” You say you never will, and then you do. It happens.
But this latest break in my strict standards has really taken me by surprise. Remember Mr. Robinson’s advice to young Ben in “The… Continue

As mentioned previously, I have been so lucky to find such wonderful people to help me in this endeavor. One of the very fortunate aspects in BN has been that it has all been caught on film. I really appreciate all of the friends who have shot our shows for the past 4 years. I am also thankful for the strangers (who are now friends) who have come out to shoot our shows.
Just about every show there is always one or two shots that stand out to me in the group of photos that a… Continue

A little voice interrupts me as I wash dishes, “Mom, I’m the President.”
I look over to see my three year old standing in kitchen, “Hello, President Luna. Nice to meet you.” I receive a lipstick smeared smile as she scampers off to her room wearing her usual attire-camisole and panties. Not quite
presidential in appearance but definitely in attitude. The Washington Press would have a field day. The headline reads, "President… Continue

I posted this for a short time last weekend and then pulled it because I wanted to think about it for a while before posting again. There have been quite a few blogs and discussions about Albuquerque's future and growth, each one prompting me to wonder if I feel good or bad about it. It's a conflict in my head.
I moved here in March, 31 years ago. I was very disappointed with the lack of green, the lack of (what i knew as) ethnic food, the sand that blew in my face, the lack of… Continue

*Martini Mike circa 1980? (I can't believe I'm sharing this picture!)
Each day on the way to my day job I pass a La Quinta
where I once lived. I thank God for the brain capacity to have continually upgraded my living situation and lot in life. I speed towards my technical career at a Fortune 500 company. I think, “Gosh I’m smart”. (OK, I don’t… Continue

The infamous Northwest Loop road is back on the minds of engineers, developers and politicians in the metro region. The NM Dept. of Transportation
sent a letter to area stakeholders announcing a public meeting that will be held in Rio Rancho on Feb. 10 to discuss planning and construction of the NW Loop Road.

Okay, this is not as epic as the title might suggest. It's really about one cider in particular: Tractor'
s Pear. As the dry British import hard ciders become increasingly hard to find, I've been looking for an alternative. K Cider is no longer at Jubilation. Strongbow is a tag below an empty shelf at Talin Market. It's been years since I've seen even a hint of Blackthorn on tap. It's easy enough to track down the… Continue

I'm finally getting to move into the Burque! I've been living in Rio Rancid for about 8 years now, and am so happy to be moving to our new place up off of Tramway. Rio Rauncho just doesn't measure up to the Burque.
I've found several nice contractors: Quetzal Mechanical, who serviced our old furnace and nearly threw up, it was in such bad shape. We had him install another one. He's great, super professional, and most of all SHOWED UP WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD. Imagine… Continue
