...at the Frontier!
I would certainly agree with this signage seen at the backdoor of Albuquerque's Frontier Restaurant, where indeed, LOITERING IS FUN! Especially with a bowl of green chile stew or a Frontier roll. Go Loiterers.

As the tiptoes of the last house guest’s high heeled boots
click clacked across my home... I was gently awakened this morning. I instantly recognize that a 2 a.m. Quesadilla/glass of water combo has saved me from a painful morning. As CNN is quickly changed to Encore Mystery on the Master Suite television, I… Continue

The NM Biz Journal
parrots the promise of SunCal's new 11,500 jobs without question.
“Our investment in New Mexico so far has been more than $250 million. It would not be a stretch to suggest that SunCal has already had a positive impact on the local economy,” said SunCal Vice President David Soyka. “What we will really need to create the jobs is a demonstration to prospective employers that we… Continue

Nothing clears the bike path like winter. Cold and dark. Technically, Earth began its gentle slide into darkness with the summer solstice, but once autumn pushed the dogs of summer back onto the porch the world began it’s seemingly accelerated slide into the blackness of winter. Commuting during this time is serene and in some respects surreal.
During these cold lonely commutes the only riders you see are those that love to ride and those that have to ride. Sometimes they are one in… Continue

When we found out our Argentinian guests were coming in the middle of January, images of last winter's massive snowstorm danced in our heads. We thought about board games and card games and what movies we could watch if we couldn't get out of the house for a week. Looking ahead at the weather, I think we'll be alright and should have some good conditions for taking our friends around.
We've bandied about ideas for day trips, sightseeing and… Continue

(Dear DCF Community, I am embarking upon a serial narrative, of my early days in Albuquerque- 1993-1995. This particular story will be continued in future posts, sporadically, as this story warrants additional details and conclusion in a future telling. Future tales may be more concise. My goal is to bring tidbits of "Moving to Albuquerque" and how the Land of Enchantment in general will suck you in. Which in my case, has been nothing but a… Continue

I can see the smallest onion domein Albuquerque from my house. It isn’t quite like seeing Russia, but given that this is New Mexico, it will have to suffice.
When I first started looking for a home in Albuquerque, I had two criteria. First, home had to be walking distance (2 miles or less) from UNM, and second, it had to be in an…

TULANE & COAL SE--My next door neighbor has a bumper sticker on her car that reads, "Oh no...not another learning experience!"
Well, Hello 2009! None of us can see into the future, but this much seems certain: some of us will lose our jobs, our cars, our houses, even our partners. So let's confront the dismal economic uncertainties that lie in wait before we get bushwacked by reality.
Here is an economic reality: you have more… Continue

Gov. Bill Richardson has just announced that he’s withdrawn his name from consideration as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Commerce. The news is related to an ethics investigation that alleges that the Richardson camp swapped a $1.5 million state GRIP contract for $100,000. in contributions to the Guv’s PACs. (There’s no question that the contributions were made or that the contract was awarded; the investigation is focused on whether there was quid pro quo involved.) The contractor in the case is… Continue
