Morning Fix: Hopes Dashed

Helping Joy Junction, Helping Myself

It’s always good to “get out there” and do something good for your community. Even if it’s super hot outside and the work is a little bit more rigorous than you’re used to. There’s just something about the feeling you get after you’re done, knowing that you got off your ass and instead did something positive for others. Add to that the fact that this certain gratifying feeling can get addicting, and it usually makes it easier for you to roll out of bed that next Saturday morning and venture… Continue

Perseid Meteors

For the last several years, I have ventured out to my favorite star gazing spot south of town on the Isleta Pueblo to 'take in' the late night neck-craning vistas and hopefully catch a meteor or three during the annual Perseid Meteor Shower...My luck has been pretty dismal (clouds rush in, moons shines too brightly, yada yada) but tonight was a great one out of at least three tries...The moon had set, the Milky Way was clearly visible and yes, there were actual Perseids whizzing through… Continue

Climbing La Luz Labor Day Weekend

For my fellow 'moderately in shape' pals - what type of prep have you done before going on big hikes? In particular, Mike and I are doing our second attempt at La Luz on Labor Day weekend and I'm looking for any training tips and suggestions (although I'm probably too late to really "train").

Last year in May we felt ambitious and did the climb. We made it within a mile or so of the peak, hit ice, and had to hike ALL the way back down. Beyond feeling like Jello, it was an amazing… Continue

Back to School

My best friend Diana called from Arizona last night, wanting to give my daughter a new outfit for her first day of high school. As a veteran mother of two daughters who have successfully navigated (and completed) the murky waters of high school, her advice is worth its weight in gold.

My best friend and I met a score and a half years ago as college students in Orange County, California. It wasn't until I bought a house in Barelas - 12 years… Continue

Lord, I was born a ramblin' gal...


Yesterday I went searching youtube for Jerry Jeff Walker singing LA Freeway. There's something very disconcerting about watching a video of Jerry Jeff singing on The Dinah Shore Show after being introduced by co-host Dandy Don Meredith. Whoa! When did that happen? And talk about a paradigm shift. I did notice that he had to change "sons of bitches they always bore me" to something milquetoasty. Ahh well...I went on to listen… Continue

What's in a Name? Martini Mike's Hangover Report! for Saturday 080908

Could it be because my name is “Martini Mike” that I am becoming a sort of unofficial party guru? Or is it because I was an unofficial party guru that my name became “Martini Mike”? Hmmm… it boggles my pounding head. I was recently interviewed by www.VegasHappyHours.com, while in my home away from home, for the launch of their new site. Then suddenly I find myself being contacted by Lexi at Albuquerque The… Continue

Well, I'm back from Romania and glad to be home (my wife sent 505 Chile for me so I didn't suffer too much)

Can't say it was the best trip, didn't get to go out much and we were very restricted to when and where we could go and how we could get there and back.

This is the base we were on.

Here is B Co 1-200 Infantry, New Mexico Army National Guard in formation in Romania. They are from Albuquerque, the armory at 600 Wyoming; that's… Continue

Looking for opinions on who has the best red chile in Burque?

After devouring a plate of huevos rancheros this morning at Loyola's on Central, I was wondering what the good people of DCF had to say when it comes to the topic of red chile. I have noticed so many levels or styles of red chile right here in our fine city that its hard for me to say personally what is the best. I have had extremely hot, very silky and mild and everywhere in between. I enjoy the red chile at Sophia's Place, Loyola's, Marlene's, had some eye watering hot chile at the Red Ball… Continue
