So I live with Montgomery Boulevard as my backyard--literally there's the back of the house, a postage stamp-sized backyard, a wall, sidewalk, berm--and then 6 lanes of Montgomery Boulevard. I live on Drag Race Alley--the stretch between Juan Tabo and Tramway. Other than the rarely changing light at Cairo in front of El Dorado High School--it's a straight shot all the way to Tramway from Juan Tabo.
Drag Race Alley impacts significantly the quality of life for every residential… Continue

I've been thinking a lot about cars lately. We can't avoid the gas price news and I can't avoid the 4-month Prius waiting list. Or my current PT Cruiser giving up the ghost (hopefully just temporarily) and sitting like a silver toad in the driveway covered with elm sap and wind dust - unable (or unwilling) to start.
Route 66 - the ultimate ribbon of shrine to the automobile - cuts right through the middle of our fair city. Welcome to the… Continue

Ok, I'm sorry to those of you who read this and know me in real life but Albuquerqians - Jamaican Me Angry!
I have not bothered to ride a bike in our great Duke City for quite some time on the basis that at 12 years old you are unable to protect yourself from 2 undeniable sources of harm: The Law and Everyone Else.
First of all, the Law does not allow for bikers to ride on sidewalks because bicycles are considered motorized vehicles. Yeah, at the athletic age of 12 at… Continue

We had just held our first Silent Art Auction at Mama’s Mineral’s the night before; and it was a resounding success!

Raine had graciously donated her time, talent, and house to organize and hold the event.
Kristin and I had stopped at Starbuck’s on our way to the event.. and boy… Continue

This morning as we here at Popejoy listened to the orchestra rehearsing the music from Monty Python’s Spamalot
we got to wondering… how the heck did Spamalot
get its name? And how did it become such a part of the Monty Python world?
You probably know that SPAM is a canned “shoulder pork and ham/spiced ham” pork product made by the Hormel Food Corporation. SPAM, like most other luncheon meats is precooked, but is also often pan-fried or heated… Continue

And win! After faithful weekly attendance at Geeks Who Drink each Monday night, my fellow Know It All Posse teammate and I finally won the evening. Knowing a lot about Billy Joel songs, the history of various corporations and which business logos are which certainly helped. Our prize? These groovy deluxe cowboy wallets.
To make the night even sweeter, I won the super secret email question. Behold the power of bacon.

This past Friday was our Grand Opening art show and open studios event. Most of the photos posted were taken before and after the show. I had planned to take more during the show, but the place was so crowded and I was so busy talking with our guests that I ended up putting the camera away.…

I’m sitting on a folding chair in a storefront office in the South Valley and I’m terrified.
There are about 35 chairs arranged in a semi-circle -- all facing the front. Most peoples' heads are tilted upwards; what is happening up front has their rapt attention.
We’re not in a storefront church, but an MVD dispensary.
My son is getting his driver’s license.
The item that has captured everyone’s… Continue

Our First Friday silent auction fundraiser was a success!
Work by 14 talented local artists and craftspeople were up on the auction block and several hundred attendees strolled through the display, bidding on everything from wire-wrapped gemstone jewelry and lush photographs, to expressive acrylics, and daring mixed media work. While snacking on gourmet treats and eyeballing original handiwork,… Continue
