So I'm back from my Army weekend and took my Wife to lunch

We went to Micks Chilie Fix on Candelaria and Girard...

The food is pretty good and the staff is nice and friendly. The menu is is kinda standard and yet unique here in the DukeCity. You can get burgers or enchiladas with red or green.…

Comcast is NOT fantastic

In Jan. 2008, my husband and I signed up for the Digital Preferred with HBO and Channel 1 On Demand for $39.99 a month, for 6 months. However, my April bill no longer reflects that cost and is quite more than expected. When I contacted the Comcast office on 4/26, I was told the transcript would be reviewed because the service person who signed us up did so for 3 months not 6 months as we had discussed and is on the internet. I didn't hear back from Comcast so I called again on May 2. I was told… Continue

The farmers markets are coming, or already here!

Finally it is time to go out in the sunshine and buy local produce! Los Ranchos Growers' Market has begun I believe, as well as the Corrales Growers' Market, and the Nob Hill Growers' Market(a mere four blocks from my house), is less than two weeks away.



I do hope this year sees hugh growth (not punning) in attendance both of growers and shoppers, burque is more than worthy of a farmers market 'scene' to rival other… Continue

Indoor Mini Golf - Exactly what I've been needing



So we've been watching Golfernoggins on Lomas going in for the last few months. At first I thought it was a golf supply place, but then we received our trusty Valpak and found out it was going to be an indoor mini-golf place! Oooh the excitement! We have a four-year-old and one-year-old and this sounded too good to be true. Indoor mini golf within walking distance of our house!!



So we went on Sunday and had a fabulous time. The kids… Continue

Passing an exit-level high school competency exam (TAKS)

So, the big issue today here in Houston (and maybe Texas) is the high school exit-level test called the TAKS test (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills. In the Houston Chronicle newspaper, there was a story Sunday about a senior high school student transferring to Colorado to graduate from high school because she cannot pass Texas' TAKS test. Colorado has no high school exit level test to demonstrate competence from high school. So she plans to transfer to Colorado to avoid the TAKS test… Continue

We Didn't Start the Fire

So, this evening a little before 6, I was driving back to my apartment from my folks' place. The route took me down Lead, whereupon I noticed something a little off. Namely, a column of smoke drifting up and over the road. Not something you see everyday, really. It appeared to be coming from area of the little market that's a block from my house. My first thought, really, was that it was waaaaaay to early to be roasting chile, and besides, there was way too much smoke for that to be the… Continue

Cowboys Ride at Rodey

Burque's Tricklock Company has brought forth a beautiful piece of work based on stories by Pam Houston. Cowboys Are My Weakness is playing now through May 18 at UNM's Rodey Theatre. A fine ensemble of Tricklock regulars--Summer Olsson, Kerry Morrigan, Kate Schroeder, Kevin R. Elder, and Chad Brummett--is joined by Drew Pollock to tug at some threads in the saddle blanket of human existence. Providing a live soundtrack (and some amazing cameos) are Tricklocker Casey Mraz and guests Aleah Waldron… Continue

Forgetting Sarah Marshall: Review

I went and saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall yesterday, so here is my "review" of it.



This has to be one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. In fact, it's so bad it's funny. I have no idea whether it is a "dude" flick or a chick flick. The movie plot is basic and predictable. The actors and actresses give a good but not great performance. You can tell what parts have been "green screened" and it's painfully obvious so it distracts you very much. Positive aspects of the film… Continue

Jazz originals and standards sung by Melody Romancito (that's me!)

Thought I'd share some of my original music along with some jazz standards.



I actually recorded these a while ago at Dead Horse studio in Taos. At the time I was playing with an excellent guitarist, David Hale, who has since moved on.



I'd love to find someone to play with again -- not just an accompanist, but someone who really digs the music and knows a little about it. Hey. I can produce charts, but you have to want to play the tune.…

Aquarium/Botanical Gardens

I just took yet another trip out to the Rio Grande Aquarium & Botanical Gardens, and never cease to be impressed. I was there with roughly 35,367 first graders, and yet I survived AND enjoyed it. If you've never been...get there. I can't wait til early June; hopefully by then the butterflies will be out in force in the butterly pavilion. Hope you like my pics!…

Utah Quarter: NSFW

So New Mexico's quarter may resemble a pizza box.

But have you gazed at Utah's two bits?

Or noticed where two bits should be hanging?

Who Killed Cricket Coogler?

At least six men are probable suspects according to Paula Moore, author of a new book about the murder: Cricket in the Web – the 1949 Unsolved Murder that Unraveled Politics in New Mexico. Ms. Moore was at Bookworks Thursday and signed my already dog-eared copy. Moore is former executive assistant to the New Mexico State University President and a long time resident of Dona Ana County. She was well spoken and patient with her audience –… Continue

Bill Wood

Ever wonder what happened to KRQE/KOAT's BILL WOOD ? He's in the state of Florida dancing with pelicans and still cranking out great photo-journaling stories still...GO BILL, GO.

The Possibilities 8

With the news that Trader Joe's is opening their second Albuquerque location in the Uptown mall, I thought it was time to really visualize a grocery downtown. Now I could go for a TJ's, a Sunflower Market (love that place), or a locally owned store like the Co-op, just as long as we get some healthy food DOWNTOWN. And I thought the empty lot on Central between 6th and 7th would be a great location. There is plenty of space, enough for parking and some residential units (gotta love the… Continue

Rio Grandé Cafe

I love to read the Rio Grande Sun and all the news from Española and today I found this article about my Tio and Tia's restaurant, The Rio Grande Cafe. I worked as a waitress there during my high school years and I'm sad to see that my cousin Becky has decided it is time to close the business now that my Tio and Tia have passed. I don't blame her, it is very hard work and… Continue
