Thank you for posting Poems on Sunday. Lisa, this is great.
Poetry is the alarm clock of sanity, wake-up call to the listening.

You know, I try hard to keep silent, yet observant, about political stuff, I vote and help those I deem worthy of my time but mostly I don't say much. Truth be told, I'm spoiled, I work in a dog store and have a pretty niffty life with few complaints. But this issue is just stupid and I need to say something.
Many of you have driven by the store and seen our chalk board signs announcing "Santa Paws" or "Dog Wash" or upcoming events or specials etc....we work hard to keep them cute… Continue

It is early morning when I hear it. The distinct sound of a plastic hanger knocking against the wooden bedroom door. I knew to expect this. I had just hoped it wouldn’t happen just as the sunlight was beginning to peak through the blinds. In walks Luna with her eyes barely open, carrying her latest obsession: her new purple dress purchased for her auntie’s wedding.
The night before, I suggested we hang the dress on the door so it would be… Continue

I've ridden with both. Each group has it's merits. Scooter folk keep the mood light and don't go very far or fast. They mostly stay in an urban evironment. Motorcycle riders have to go at least 100 miles and hit 100 mph at least once and grind a peg in order for a ride to be successful.
I would encourage each group to ride with another in order to experience a different world.
Lately, I've been riding with the scooterati and a few other motorcycles.… Continue

OK, first of all , I have to apologize for the crappy photos. Let's just say a camera phone works in certain situations and not in others.
That said, the California Guitar Trio
at the Cooperage was a great show. By the time I got off of work, picked up the GF and headed to the Cooperage, I was running a bit late. Needless to say, Neil Copperman of AMP… Continue

This sort of Japanese animated movie is not widely shown in America, usually. I seem to recall only the most excellent Spirited Away, and somewhat less so Howl's Moving Castle making it to the big screen. Also, I watched If You Listen Closely at a screening in San Francisco sponsored by the Consulate of Japan, but that's about it. Now the UNM Anime Club is getting serious about showing The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (also known as "Tokikake", short for its… Continue

i finally had a moment to look over the DCF morning fix on eclipse. i was very disappointed to find it tied directly to a critic blog...and that was it. a story of this magnitude really deserved more balanced coverage, and it's not like , oh, say , there was not a few hundred people available to discuss it.Also pretty un fair to everyone who may have wanted to comment.
No matter a persons personal take on all this, there are some hard facts.

I love spring time in Albuquerque. However, spring time in Albuquerque doesn't really like me.
In fact, I think it has it out for me.
Around this time every year, I walk around in a Benedryl induced haze, in some vain attempt to breathe. And every year I fail.
It gets so bad that after a major sneezing fit, all I can do is toss my hands up and shout to the heavens, "The Claritin D...it does nothing! Why?!??!?"
I love watching Albuquerque come back to… Continue

Rob Dickson sent out appologies withdrawing from the Mayors race about two weeks ago. The Public FInancing parameters appear to be too ridgid and difficlut for a number of the potential Mayoral candidates (Debbie O'Malley also withdrew due to frustration with the $5 donation public financing plan) This is something politically minded folks may want to work on for future elections.
Our local champion of "New Urbanism" Rob Dickson, has… Continue

Ok. Apologies to The Dead.
It all started when I got the big idea that I would have my own personal blog page where I could rant about whatever I wanted, post pictures, comments, etc. So I did what I usually do & that is go hawg wild before investigating the endeavor. I consider instructions a sourc of last resort.
I'll try to keep it brief. I took the advice of Dale, Jr & went godaddy.com. Before I knew it I was the proud owner of not only one, but two domains. One of them… Continue
