Arizona Governor, Janet Napolitano
, is in line to become our next Homeland Security secretary...Ms. Napolitano was one of the first United States Governors to support Barack Obama. On January 22nd, 2008, she appeared at a fund-raiser at Albuquerque's AirDance ArtSpace
where I had a chance to meet her. In person, she seems to be a very down-home, solid citizen, and just what you've come to expect from someone born in… Continue

NOB HILL--A week ago Thursday I met a family on loaded touring bikes in front of my favorite bike shop, Two Wheel Drive. We spoke briefly. The man was in a hurry to leave. I went inside the shop, and they were gone when I came out. Two days later on The Duke City Fix, Mary Tafoya posted a discussion titled "… Continue

Two years ago I happened on the first Biennial Southwest (2006) art show by accident – I was at the Albuquerque Museum to look at the Rembrandt etchings of beggars
. My family, ever crowd averse and having reached their fill of Rembrandt, headed down a hall, turned a corner, and walked smack into the Biennial Southwest exhibit.
My trek this weekend to the… Continue

Today, the city gnomes dropped off shiny, new, and blue recycling bins in my neighbourhood in the SW. The lack of decent recycling options was a big disappointment for me when I moved in. The city website said that we ought to put the recycling out in clear plastic bags, which were supposed to be available in neigbourhood supermarkets... only they weren't! I ended dropping off my recycling at a collection bin in the neighbourhood Wal-Mart (all hail… Continue

So it's kind of strange. I am getting set to buy my plane tickets to "go home" for Christmas - Narita - LAX - ABQ. I have thought of myself as a San Diegan for a long time, since that's where I grew up, but I have not lived in California since I took off for the Academy at 18. California is still my "home of record" in military parlance, since my parents are still there. But they are looking to shift to New Mexico at some point, too. Soon, I hope. I… Continue

Last weekend was really full
so this weekend I'm taking things easy. One day, one major activity. Saturday is for watching belly dancers, Sunday is for hiking. The best part is, you can do it as well- it's all happening next weekend too. All links are clickable for full size pictures.
Saturday, Novermber 22, 2008- It's 12:30PM and we're on our way to… Continue

I left work a little early on Friday and stopped along the way to photograph these memorials people leave. It was a lot more dangerous that I thought it would be and I'm not going to even try the ones between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. I missed about half of them between Belen and Albuquerque because I couldn't safely pull over and get a picture.
I've been wanting to do this for a couple of years and am glad I was finally able to do it. Perhaps using a motorcycle would be safer or… Continue

What a warm beautiful Saturday afternoon. What a nice day to put the top down and take a long ride
… or patch the roof! God I loves me a roof. Well, to hang out on, not fix! Unfortunately I only came to grips with the need for some patching shortly before my vacation a few weeks ago. Porch roof, old and cracking, flat, leaking a tad in monsoon season, yada yada. Did… Continue

My mom called me a week or so ago telling me that i needed to go see the Guerrilla Girls
. I had no clue what she was talking about (which is odd since she raised me to be an artist and feminist....) and thought she was referring to Gorilla Tango. She described briefly what the GGirls were about and i mentally put the night into "Events I should
go to, but probably wont due to lack of disposable… Continue

Read the headlines on CNN, The Drudge Report, MSNBC ... and it will send you running for the hills with your shotgun and a suitcase of money. But with all the financial panic, high seas piracy, and new cabinet appointments, I was pleased to see that we in Albuquerque still know REAL
news when we read it.… Continue

I bet you've been wondering where I've been. I mean since that Hollywood Halloween anyway. No? Fine. Well last night I was at Imbibe! Wait, did I see you there? If not, you missed a great event. It was their "Drew Estate Night". Drew Estate
is a Nicaraguan cigar company... makers of the "Acid" line you may have heard of as well as about 7 others you may not have.… Continue

There are some rye whiskeys I can find around town: Old Overholt, Wild Turkey Rye and the baby Sazerac come to mind. And there are some that I can't: Rittenhouse Rye 100, Templeton, Old Rip Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye, Pikesville Supreme and Old Potrero. The "can't find" list always seems to be longer than the "can find" list. There's at least one reason for that.
When I pop into Jubilation looking for some obscure rye whiskey brand, they… Continue

I work at Central New Mexico Community College
and we have this really cool Culinary Arts Program.
At a meeting last week I was yapping on about stuffing, and then cooking, my turkey. Joyce Woodard, one of the Professional Cooking Instructors at CNM looked at me askance and said "that's totally not safe Alexis." It got me thinking, maybe its a… Continue

I meant to post this weeks ago, but finally got around to it. New Mexico has some really great hiking trails, and I have been covering a lot of ground this fall. I hike occasionally with the Albuquerque Hiking and Outdoor Meetup
. They have a lot of members and do a lot of hikes, especially in the Sandias, but also to the neighboring Jemez, Sangre de Cristo and sometimes even to Wheeler Peak or Sierra… Continue
