Driving Down to Carlsbad to see the big pretty hole in the ground

Last November (sometime in the middle) my husband Brendan and I drove down to Carlsbad to see the caverns, we had been some years before, and were looking forward to the cave if not the town. On the way down we had lunch at the Pasta Cafe' in Roswell, for those of you foodies who feel you will starve in South Eastern New Mexico, it is simply not true, this is a great little continental place… Continue

The Art of Science

Is there anyone out there that still believes art should not be part of basic school curriculum? I certainly hope not! Art – and music – can easily be part of any literature, math or science lesson. One of the finest examples of art intersecting with science is a program called Protect our Wildlife Corridors – Community Mosaic Mural. Fellow DCF member cc, also known as Cirrelda Snyder Bryan, is… Continue

I’ve Been Running

When I was a kid, running was embarrassing for me. I’ve always been an athlete, but never a small, spry gazelle athlete who could run for days. I’ve always been the athlete who doesn’t throw like a girl and could beat any guy in H-O-R-S-E on the basketball court.

I was a chunky tomboy during my elementary school years. Not the best years to be chunky, not only because of the ridicule from painfully honest/stupid kids, but also PE class and the mile run tests they put you… Continue

Heart of the Bosque

Zoom past the Bosque on I-40 or any of the other bridges during winter and the Rio Grande looks gray and dormant. However, if you take the time to chat with it up close, there's color, life, motion, and sound.

Of course, the color is muted, as is the bird chatter (until you wander far enough from the bridges), but it's there. The year-round Canadian geese nap on sandbars, or drift in the lazy current.…

Those Lobo Women: Albuquerque's Team

THE PIT, UNIVERSITY & CESAR CHAVEZ SE--The Lobo women's basketball team fought its way back into the top 25 in the AP poll yesterday. The ESPN/USA Today poll comes out later today shows the Lobos in 27th. This is pretty exciting. I have had season tickets for Lobo basketball for decades...going back to the Stormin' Norman Ellenberger years. Oh, at… Continue

We Caught a Schipperke

Miss Melanie : Caught in the Act

We set out this week to catch a feral cat that has been causing chaos at BunnytownUSA. Our efforts have gone for naught with the cat getting most of the food and escaping unscathed. Today however, we caught a curiously hungry Schipperke instead. She was released immediately and no animals were harmed in the making of this photograph, in fact, Miss Melanie rather… Continue

Hope and Renewal in Barelas

I went to a party last weekend and was outed as Barelas Babe.

My identity is no secret, but once people discover this, cocktail conversations head in a predictable direction. So I spent more than a few minutes last Saturday night talking with a longtime Albuquerque realtor about changes in Barelas. When you live in a community it is easier to notice incremental changes, especially if you walk it daily. For the infrequent visitor driving… Continue

The Tale of the Escaped Dog, but Not Really About the Dog

A brunch was interrupted this morning as a black and white heeler mix came bounding toward us this morning as we got into the car. Excited, playful, skittish, certainly friendly - we waylaid him long enough to get a phone number off of his collar, and then off he ran, not comfortable with being caught quite yet. We followed the dog to the Ridgecrest drive median and that's where the story begins.

But lest ye think this is the typical… Continue

Frontier Fun

...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.

Martini Mike's Hangover Report - "Jumping into 2009 through the Moon Roof" Edition

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

SunCal - Up Front and All At Once

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

The Commuter Chronicles 2009.1.9.

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

Winter Day Trips & Sightseeing

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
