Headed over. Saw the activity. Here are some photos of the event. If you missed it on Sunday, there will be other opportunities to stroll, shop, and enjoy the unique part of Albuquerque known as Nob Hill.

Our garden has been both a delight and a disapointment this month.
We got this melon that looks like it was grown by professionals.
This less good looking but still yummy corn.
Unfourtunately we were attacked by squash bugs.…

The first time I saw Albuquerque was during winter break of my senior year of college. My 3 year old son and I drove east from California in an aging pickup truck to check out the University of New Mexico
as a possible place to spend a few years while I attended graduate school
The two of us had been to… Continue

Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill
, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

Sunday, August 24. It's 1pm and I've just tried cafe de olla and/at Los Equipales
for the first time. Lovely. Today's actual destination is Nob Hill- all of it. It's the second Sunday Shop and Stroll
and we're going to check it out. As promised, all car traffic on Central between Girard and Washington is gone. Free reign for bicyclists and pedestrians.… Continue

On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting

This has been a great year for hummingbird visitors. For the last few weeks a rufus has claimed the feeder outside my office window. This one comes back every 20 minutes- which suggests to me C's formula for bird-smack is working really well (Perhaps she'll post her secret recipe).…

You can read a Happiness Report in 2005
sending Development Kudos to those who destroyed an eyesore Nob Hill Parking lot at the old Baca Restaurant site to make way for a progressive Lofty Loft with commercial opportunities at the base of the residential provisions.
ARE WE SUCKERS? We lost the quaint, tourist attraction of Nob Hill when the city planners allowed an… Continue

This is off topic for 'Burque (unless you were born in Jacksonville, Florida like me or have relatives there) but it is just so gosh darn beautiful here this noon with a slight touch of fall in the air under a sky blue sky...

I've been watching a pretty good deal of the Olympic games, in spite of NBC's pathetic coverage. Why can't the US networks get it right? Anyway I suppose one has to figure that with all these young, fit athletes, from all parts of the world milling about, something has to be going on at Olympic village after dark - wonder no more :) Here's an article by Matthew Syed, a former Olympian, over at the http://www.timesonline.co.uk

I got the urge to write again and I pondered the subjects swirling around in my brain. Should I go with chile roasting, or should I write about The Dead Donor Rule, the ethics of which was discussed in a recent issue of The New England Journal of Medicine?
To some of you, this may seem like a no-brainer dilemma. I mean, c'mon! This joint ain't called Duke City Fix fer nuthin' and chile roasting would be about our most favorite thing in the whole wide world: chile
. How… Continue

Local non-profit New Mexico Pug Rescue
takes care of pugs that are without a home. Owners, for a variety of reasons (moving, too busy, health issue, dog grew up from being a puppy, etc.), choose to get rid of their pugs, and if the pugs are lucky... they make it to pug rescue.
Kelly, the official 'pug lady' of the rescue, does amazing work. For the year that I've known her, at any point in time she could be taking care of one pug up to 10+.… Continue

I know there was a post a few days ago about Sophia's being on 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' and I responded to say that I knew the show would be filming at The Standard Diner on Central as well. Today I got a call from one of the owners of The Standard, telling me to invite all my friends to come to lunch tomorrow (Thursday 8/21), and be in the background for filming. I guess they're starting filming in the morning and will continue throughout the day. The restaurant opens at 11 am and if you… Continue

My daughter made me cry the other day, and not because she was being unkind or for being an insensitive teenager. As we were snapping pictures for this series, she exclaimed, “This has been the best summer ever!” I asked her why and she said that she loved going to work with me as a junior docent at the museum
. She also said it was a great summer because she had so much fun discovering… Continue

Last weekend New Mexico Youth Organized hosted a retreat to bring together active young “doers” from around the state to network with one another and brainstorm on how to make New Mexico a better state. On the bus ride to the super fancy “Sunrise Springs Resort” the participants took turns hooking up their I-Pods on the stereo blasting everything from reggae to hip-hop and alternative tunes. Before we arrived I already knew it was an amazing group, music says a lot about people.
As we… Continue
