I was fueling my car today and look what the guy next to me had a tatoo of.

NOB HILL--In a city that prizes its architects...in a city where even common folk like us can rattle off the names of Predock, Prince, Whittlesey, and John Gaw Meem...in such a place where buildings are talked about, few know the name of Henry C. Trost. Yet Trost has done more to shape the skyline of downtown Albuquerque than anybody else. He is responsible for designing no less than six of Central Avenue's signature structures plus a nearby house.… Continue

SunCal is making some brazen claims to brackish water in mile-deep wells beneath the old Atrisco Land Grant - among the brazen claims by others, including Atrisco Oil and Gas, Commonwealth Utilities and Sandoval County.
The uncharacteristically reality-based skepticism of the Albuquerque Journal was picked up by istockanalyst blog
. The Journal notes the policy vacuum and suggested the State… Continue

After last week’s election results were posted, I realized that a fair number of politicos and their staffers in the Duke City may be headed to Washington DC, my “other city”. And it seems that a local museum director
and a few others (including one amazing Burqueña who’ll be sharing my space for a bit) will also be coming east. Some folks will be trekking from… Continue

Last year, when I went to see Dweezil Zappa playing his father's music, an old guy with a pony tail sitting in front of me turned and asked me if I knew “Weasels Ripped My Flesh.” He told me a story about sitting in a bar in Los Alamos, watching a trio, and realizing the drummer was Jimmy Carl Black. He went home between sets and got his copy of “Weasels” so Black could autograph it.…

This week there have been a lot of trucks which seem to be hauling dirt from a spot just south of I-40 on the east bank of the river. There is a sign on the pedestrian bridge which crosses the acequia about 1/4 mile south which references "cleaning up your bosque" and suggests not walking on the levee for the next three weeks. Anyone our there know more detail about what's going on?

Would balding, middle-aged men like to be werewolves at night if it meant they could have hair for a few more hours?
My youngest thinks so. One evening this past week, my husband was in the back yard with our son when they heard some howling in the distance. To tease my son, my husband starting making up a wild scenario about the howling - perhaps it was a werewolf, and wasn't it coming from the direction of his school? Maybe it was his… Continue

What an unbelievably historic election!!! Throughout the night I thought about my personal political journey, my belief system and values. You could say that my beliefs were literally formed around the kitchen table. I thought about what Barelas Babe
posted a few weeks ago.
Political discussions were common with my family. I remember my mother, my aunt and… Continue

Hi! I just created a new group for people who are getting married in the Duke City. I'm tying the knot in May and basically just need some help with ideas and planning stuff. If you're engaged, already married, or just interested in marriage and all the crap that goes along with it: JOIN THE GROUP! Thanks! :D

NOB HILL--If you are under 40, you have never voted for any president that wasn't a Clinton or a Bush. If you are voting for the first time, you weren't even alive before the Bush and Clinton years. Those years divided America right down the middle: a 50-50 split filled with some of the worst of American politics. Year after year we put up with the other half of our country...all the time wondering how they ever got to be so stupid, so gullible, or so… Continue

I come to Duke City Fix often despite my busy schedule because I believe it's important to participate in this community. And, I will continue to participate even if you give me the honor of serving in Congress. I know that direct political appeals are sometimes frowned upon in this community, but I wanted to share the following note I just sent to my supporters because this is one of the… Continue
