Last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend a Nnenna Freelon concert at the African American Performing Arts Center
. Thanks to DCF, the tickets were free and in these times, free is a welcome change.
My fiance didn't quite know Nnenna Freelon as her music taste vary mostly from Mariachi, (Which she will proudly tell you was born in the same place she was) to… Continue

Sometimes inspiration comes to us in curious ways. I’m always inspired by my city. It offers such a deep, rich history and also wonderful stories of characters past and present. What are most inspiring to me are the wonderful people I have had the honor to meet. They run the gamut from fellow Duke City Fixers, to sweet neighbors, to world-class race car drivers.
In total and full disclosure,… Continue

For the past few months I've been a part of the Proposed Historic Nob Hill District Main Street Steering Committee, we've come along way in the application process, which is almost complete. This Friday, the 10th, is the final assessment by the NM Main Street directors (part of the State Department of Economic Development,) as to the readiness of Nob Hill to participate. Part of the agenda on Friday is a public lunch for those who wish to know more about the program, what it has to offer, and… Continue

NOB HILL--If you are a working stiff, a 3-day camping trip is the ideal way to recreate yourself. Sneak out of work for a day and a great big adventure lies before you. But so many of us have no gear or no experience here in the mountain west. And many would like to get started camping but really have no idea how to begin without going broke at REI. So here are some thoughts from a person who has camped out for over 50 years and just last summer… Continue

This year, USGBC-NM is having a kick-off event at the Albuquerque… Continue

I know that not every neighborhood in Albuquerque has elm trees, but in the Near North Valley and for miles around us, they are everywhere. In the spring these trees present trillions of seeds on their branches before a single leaf bud pops out. With our recent weather pattern - windy, windier and windiest - down they come and the Annual Elm Seed Festival of Albuquerque has begun.
The seeds usually turn a straw color and then fall like… Continue

For the past couple of weeks, I have had the pleasure of being entertained every morning and afternoon by a little red finch. He comes up to my office window and goes through a chaotic ritual of pecking the window, fluttering about and chirping his heart out. Not only has he provided amusement for me but, my coworkers come by to check on him and watch his antics. He has been a welcome respite in an otherwise high stress work environment. More intriguing is that he has brought people together… Continue

Has anyone else noticed the new weather guy on Channel 4? He's a bona fide meterologist and all, so props to KOB on that. But what drives me insane is the three different ways he pronounces his name (there may be a fourth...my kids and I are still debating).
The Hipster, as my kids have (perhaps disrespectfully) taken to calling him, is named Michael Kelting and he pronounces his last name in these three key ways: Kelting (regular), Kyelting (slight slowdown in the middle) and Kel-TING… Continue

Every time I do one of these "Where in Burque" posts, I swear it will be the last one. Then I notice something cool, pull out the camera and have to do a whole new one. I didn't really have a theme for this one, hence the randomness of the photos. I have to give credit to my eagle-eyed daughter who has a knack for noticing such cool things in our fair city.
Let's see who can figure out all this randomness!

"You can get a lot farther with a kind word and a gun than a kind word alone."
Today I took the Goldwing out for a run along old route 66. It was really windy and as usual, no one around. So I took out my toy to play a bit. This weekend I am going to Juarez for a little visit, I will be packing, my camera that is.…

UNIVERSITY & CESAR CHAVEZ SE--Somehow I wasn't expecting the Professional Bull Riders' Ty Murray to end up giving his name to The Pit. But the official new name for UNM's University Arena will be "Ty Murray's PBR PIT
." Apparently the bull riding event last weekend made so much money that the bull rider was convinced to opt for outright naming rights.
This is not the first university basketball facility to sell its rights. In 1997… Continue
