Size Matters: Madness at the dog park, or Who Made You Queen of the Dog Park?



Steph and Chloe hit the Bullshead dog park today after dropping me off at work. We take Chloe there often because of the proximity to work. The park is split into two sections, a big dog area and a small dog area. Until today Chloe has been able to enjoy the benefits of being neither a big or a small dog. She's a basset hound/retriever mix weighing in at 35 pounds. She's stout and strong and while she shares some characteristics of the… Continue

Ride for the beautiful job on the POETRY ON THE BUS reception; for the gorageous book of the selected poems; and for the LITERARY ARTS on the WALL artshow (Yes, poems are art pieces!) at 117 Gold.

Winners of Poetry on the Bus

Jordan Martinez, with his poem for Poetry on the Bus



Big love to all the winners of this year's Poetry on the Bus program! I just returned minutes ago from the opening reception to share some snapshots with you.



The downtown venue was packed and the scene was groovin'. Apparently poetry events are a prime place to meet people too as I connected with a foxy engineer from Intel who was there to support Jordan (shown… Continue

Martini Mike's Hangover Report - Journal Pavilion Edition



“There's many who've tried to prove that they’re faster

But they didn't last and they died as they tried” – Judas Priest, “Hell Bent For Leather”.

Fishing at Tingley

I've been fisihing at Tingley since last Spring.

Mostly Saturday mornings from sunrise until 10 AM or more, depends on the Sun.

I have a 2 rod license. I use an old rod I'd bought in Washington, DC more than 15 years ago. I also have a smaller rod I recently purchased here in town at Smiley Boy. Both my reels are new. My setup is sinkers on both, with two hooks. Hotdog, shrimp, and salmon eggs are the normal bait. This weekend I'll try some nasty blood dough I bought at Charlie's… Continue

Where does the New Mexico State Fairgrounds go from here?



With the horse racing and casino company relocating to Moriarity, the State and Expo NM has requested that we respond with ideas for how to fill the new hole in Expo NM's budget (~$2M). As a local I felt obligated to respond.



I proposed that a portion of the land be utilized as urban farm for the purpose of education, food security, and a place for the local community to gather. It's the perfect location for a demonstrative organic… Continue

Its all fun and games, until someone looses an eye, then its a Sport!

Its no secret, I'm a geek at heart, actually I'm proud to be as geeky as I am! One of my many geeky pastimes is Beer and Airhockey. For a while there we had regular Beer and Airhockey nights, sometimes we had anywhere from 2 to 25 people show up to play. We even had a web-app client roster and score tally we could update with our phones (years before Twitter).



Yep we were that geeky. believe it or not there were girls too that cane to play… Continue

A Rambling Head Case Waits For His Girlfriend

NOB HILL--Yesterday afternoon I was waiting in front of the Central Ave. Flying Star for my beautiful GF to come walking down the street. I love meeting her as she walks home from work. Last Thursday we met at an outdoor table in front of La Montanita Co-op. Today it's the FS.



Ants in my Pants

I'm a little antsy these days. Last April I flew out to Virginia for a bike ride and didn't get home until 8 days ago. It was the… Continue

Working my way out of a funk: getting dirty, growing things, feeding people.

After talking with a friend of mine who is the garden coordinator for Hope's Half Acre, I jumped on board as a volunteer waterer, weeder, and all around garden helper. I was in a funk at the beginning of the summer and this was just the thing to do to work through it. I love gardening, and since my home garden mostly consists of potted plants and vegetables, it felt good getting my hands in the dirt. It's hard to describe exactly what it is, that hour… Continue

Expanded Bike Parking in Nob Hill: An Appreciation

new bike racks



When they began removing the parking meters in parts of Nob Hill this year, I became worried. This was not because I am a frequent car parker, or someone that fears technology (although the old parking meters were much more aesthetically pleasing than the black Monuments to Parking that replaced them). It was because of the simple equation: fewer parking meters =… Continue

Lobo Lineage

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 and Albuquerque as a possible place to spend a few years while I attended graduate school.



The two of us had been to… Continue

Weekend Around ABQ Part II





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
