Over at the Albuquerque Livejournal community, there is an interesting thread
on how to pick a school, and what determines good schools. The conversation has not quite degenerated into private vs charter vs public. Okay, that's a total lie
, but I still think it's worth a look. And input, from any fixers on lj.

I see my announcement post has been removed...fine.
I just want to say that I am no link spammer, my previous post
about the Times Square Deli website was a legitimate ask for advice.
I am genuinely frustrated by Google's refusal to acknowledge these two sites. It is completely impossible to find the Times Square site on Google, because they haven't indexed it at all.

I recently got hired to design a website for the Times Square Deli Mart
, right next to the Ho-Ho's across from campus, the corner of Yale and Central.
For anyone who hasn't eaten there, I can't recommend it enough. The people are great, and the food is better.
A few summers ago I went to New York for a while, and I can honestly say that between that trip and the opening of Times Square I was in some sort of weird sandwich… Continue

We knew it was coming but after 8 years of keeping our fingers crossed, a major limb of our backyard cottonwood tree started to fail this weekend and was resting on the electric line. We had hoped to get one last summer out of this crazy upside-down octopus of a tree, hacked carelessly over the years by the PNM folks to keep it out of the electric lines above. The result was a lopsided hazard that has been slowly dying for the last several… Continue

Much has been made of the recent political campaign sign chaos
. Combined with the usual We Buy Homes, I Fix Brakes
and we are having a Yard Sale
, this was the perfect storm
(will this expression never end?) of signage carnage. Not to mention the raging inferno of the court battles lending us these instant classic
headlines: 10 Signs 10 Trips to Court, City Zoning Inspector's Car Windows Smashed
. The horror.
Before the next swathing of… Continue

It's apricot season in Albuquerque. Whether it's you, your neighbor, or your friend, chances are there's an apricot tree in your life laden with overripe fruit this week. Now.
I've tried (and failed) at plenty of canning endeavors. This is the best apricot preserves recipe

The father of St. Francis of Assisi was an asshole. The father (Bernardone, but we'll call him Bernie) would wait for the great saint to re-enter their hometown of Assisi, and then Bernie would follow Francis around screaming at him, "you are a disgrace to the family!" "you are worthless!" "you are an embarrassment to your mother and I!"
We can often withstand many of the negative voices of those who do not and can not understand the path we have chosen, yet the voice of our father strikes… Continue
