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

Ti Jean's only daughter lived on Monte Vista...



(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

Christmas in Barelas - Redux

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…

How to Give Your Monthly Budget a $1000 Haircut

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

Richardson’s staying, but will he step aside?

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

First Friday

We went to Artscrawl last night, I love Artscrawl and we made a plan to go to three different galleries. First on the list was Chroma Studios Gallery. Their featured artist this month is Nick Harmon of FHAB Concepts.

Nick’s work is amazing and really needs to be seen in person to be completely appreciated. He did their floor and also filled the main gallery… Continue
