Bad Parents / Good Kids: two-year-old in traffic

I only live two miles from my work, yet I somehow get mixed up in odd scenarios in that limited four minute drive. More recently I 'rescued' a house rabbit that was hiding in tumbleweeds (after getting stung 50+ times by red ants and peed on by such rabbit). Today's experience was more serious, a two-year-old boy with no shoes or coat on standing in the middle of a busy road in 30 degree weather with no parents or siblings in sight.



I turned around and pulled over and jumped out of… Continue

Christmas in Barelas - Redux

I can see the smallest onion domein Albuquerque from my house. It isn’t quite like seeing Russia, but given that this is New Mexico, it will have to suffice.



When I first started looking for a home in Albuquerque, I had two criteria. First, home had to be walking distance (2 miles or less) from UNM, and second, it had to be in an…

YAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Open invite to Q&A about Dog Food!!!

Man my holidays were nutty-buddy so I'm super-duper sorry it's taken me soooooooo long to drop a line or two on my beloved DCF!



So, HELLO DCF!!!



It's a new year, and as usual, most of us are worrying about our waistlines that go just a little bit bigger over the holidays thanks to mom's cooking or an extra couple of cookies here and there. Don't forget you four legged buddy's waist line too!



Put simply, start the new year off right with good nutrition for your… Continue

Where is everybody?

Albuquerque is no longer considered a gateway, but a destination, thanks in part to our ACVB's Marketing efforts. But I see gloom and doom in the future with Albuquerque tourism.



I have been an innkeeper in Albuquerque for almost 9 years, and I have never seen a time as slow as this winter. We usually have a slow time of it in November, December and January, but this year we have less than 10% of the bookings… Continue

How to Give Your Monthly Budget a $1000 Haircut

TULANE & COAL SE--My next door neighbor has a bumper sticker on her car that reads, "Oh no...not another learning experience!" Well, Hello 2009! None of us can see into the future, but this much seems certain: some of us will lose our jobs, our cars, our houses, even our partners. So let's confront the dismal economic uncertainties that lie in wait before we get bushwacked by reality.



Here is an economic reality: you have more… Continue

An Emailed 'Letter' from Gov. Bill Richardson

Subject: My Duty to America



Dear ____,



For nearly three decades, I have been honored to serve my state and our nation in Congress, at the U.N., as Secretary of Energy and as governor. So when the President-elect asked me to serve as Secretary of Commerce, I felt a duty to answer the call.



I felt that duty particularly because America is facing such… Continue

Richardson withdraws from Commerce Sec. Position

Gov. Richardson has withdrawn from his bid as Obama's Secretary of Commerce amid an FBI investigation.



http://www.koat.com/news/18408879/detail.html



I'm not sure how to feel about all this. The fact is that any politician who wants to make it to "the top" is going to have a lot of other people's money behind them. The hubaloo right now, of course, is anyone associated with Obama and where their money came from.



I just can't for the life of me say that I care,… Continue

Richardson’s staying, but will he step aside?

Gov. Bill Richardson has just announced that he’s withdrawn his name from consideration as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Commerce. The news is related to an ethics investigation that alleges that the Richardson camp swapped a $1.5 million state GRIP contract for $100,000. in contributions to the Guv’s PACs. (There’s no question that the contributions were made or that the contract was awarded; the investigation is focused on whether there was quid pro quo involved.) The contractor in the case is… Continue
