Every few months it seems like all of the women I know are pregnant, right now is one of those times. This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller responds to the gift requirements of these inevitable times with some serious cuteness. Here are some of LittleTowHeads' clever and adorable embroidered wares:…
Autumn in Albuquerque is sometimes summer and sometimes fall. Which is to say, if you don't keep your eyes open you will miss half the colors. It's 85 degrees in the SE heights and the morning glories are going wild. The peak is here- each day the blossoms are smaller and the leaves are starting to get scraggly. Still, a good sight to see for the next week or two.… Continue
The new Artscrawl video from the Albuquerque Art Business Association is online! Take a look and let them know what you think. It features voiceover by the fabulous Pamela Michaelis, and the fine dramatic work of local actors Don Morse and Courtney Bell. The gist is to give visitors a sense of this Albuquerque tradition and that it is anything but boring. What's the… Continue
diez y siete—seventeen years old
and I was only twelve
I don’t remember your name
but I heard your story loud and clear
when the sirens came screaming to your house
one block away from me in Pico Rivera,
where such wails were the neighborhood soundtrack of our existence
you, living with your niñita and your parents
your baby’s father nowhere in sight
one night, a vato from Montebello parked in front of your house
What do you get when you combine a Montessori education, with a schoolbus, a green thumb, and a mission? The WHO Farm Mobile, of course! This past Saturday, special guests Daniel Bowman Simon and Casey Gustowarow joined neighborhood residents, business owners, students, artists and activists in the 3rd Annual Carnuel Road Parade & Fiesta. The WHO (White House Organic) Farm Mobile isn't just any double decker schoolbus - its second deck is… Continue
Yesterday PPNM staff exiting our parking lot noticed an injured woman lying semi-conscious on the sidewalk in front of our surgical clinic. Staff immediately summoned police and paramedics who responded quickly, ultimately taking the woman to the hospital. She had not been a patient here, but had obviously been abused by someone somewhere else, staggered here and collapsed.
Meanwhile, several anti-choice protesters… Continue
So, what's this about Brian O'Brien's burning down? I saw the raw footage on the Abq Journal's website, but can't find a dang news story about it.
I guess it's confession time: I used to work at that bar. Yes, I worked at the bar with the freaking dumbest name ever. In 2002, I returned to Abq from Europe--where my impending marriage had just crumbled--and I needed to line up some work so I could save up enough money to move to Colorado and start an internship with High Country News.… Continue
Hey everyone. I will be in New Mexico for the entire Holiday Season and was wondering what's the best thing to do on New Years. It is my Birthday on that day and would like to do something fun in either Santa Fe or Albuquerque. I'm thinking some sort of Hotel/Dinner package with a friend or possible romance you never know it's only Oct. I am gay so anything that's fun not too much into the club scene, more of a bar/lounge person. So gay friendly is fine :) I heard the Hyatt has some nice… Continue

NOB HILL--I looked at the TV screen yesterday afternoon while the DOW settled into a stunning decline of 777 points. The S&P alone suffered a paper loss of around $700 billion. $700,000,000,000!! That number may sound familiar--it is the same figure for the total of the so-called bailout that was defeated by Congress yesterday. Gone in one day. Not scared yet? How about this: if you had $500,000 in your 401K yesterday you lost about $35,000 in an… Continue
This editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer encapsulates a huge issue in the arts & culture world right now - though the arts are a robust part of most cities' economies, many arts groups exist on a knife edge of financing each year. And with financial markets in turmoil, there's even more worry happening at many non-profits that rely on individual and… Continue
They stuck out notices yesterday that they were re-blacking the street, tonight when I got home form work It had begun.
I voted against the bond/plan i continue to oppose the stupid plan, to turn these major downtown and freeway feeding arteries into 2 lane, rage driver filled, quagmires of pollution! Mark my words this will be bad, and when they do their monthly closing of central it will be even worse.
This is like congress! The…

I had the pleasure of driving in trafffic this morning at 7:45. As I was driving it seemed amazing to me. Everyone on the road is in a rush to get to where they are going so much so they are willing to cause traffic to come to a complete stop so they could move to the front of the line. Thank goodness I only have to venture in to that mess every once in a while. And business owners who have employees. Did you ever consider staggering your start times so everybody doesn't have to be at work at… Continue
I’ve been staring at the screen off and on for days, trying to figure out what to blog about this week.
This happens sometimes when I’ve been away from Albuquerque for too long. And I have been away longer than usual, thanks to some extra travel this month. But in some ways, I'm never that far away from Albuquerque.
So I’m wondering:
Should I start with the most popular question of the week from my colleagues here in DC -… Continue
