Friday, July 25 2008. It's 6pm and we've just parked at the lot on 5th and Copper. Usually I'm here to visit the Main Library, but tonight we're here for the Civic Cinema
. The show doesn't start for until 8:30, so we walk over to Central. The first order of business is obtaining dinner.
Tonight we're… Continue

There is going to be a car wash this weekend to help raise funds for the Hagerty family at the Auto Zone on Paseo del Norte near Louisiana. There will be Lobo… Continue

I've been noticing an awful lot of road construction around Albuquerque lately. This could be because I'd been away for almost two weeks, then I came back and the construction seems to have exploded. It reminded me of some favorite memories growing up, and since some friends of mine had asked, I posted it on my personal blog.
I've so… Continue

So, I'm going to be spending a LOT of time at Isotopes Park this weekend. How much time? Well, I was at tonight's game. And I'll be at tomorrow's night's, too. And Saturday's. And Sunday's. Kind of a good thing I like baseball, eh?
Well, if the rest of the games are as good as tonight's, I'll be in good shape.
Of course, if the rest of the games start off like tonight's that might be bad. See, after breezing through the first inning, the 'Topes ran into some trouble in the… Continue

Today Karlita and I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum
It's overwhelming---more than I am emotionally able to stand.
So I believe that I act in the spirit of Almighty God; by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
Although I follow and believe the teachings of Jesus, I do not call… Continue

I went to see Cathryn McGill sing in Old Town last night. The performance was part of the New Mexico Jazz Festival. I first heard her on KUNM talking about the festival, and was interested enough to at least check out the free performance. I was really impressed by her talent. She sang a variety of songs, mostly in the R&B vein but some jazz and blues. I found several of her original compositions compelling, especially one she wrote for her mother "The Hand That Rocked My Cradle". She has a… Continue

I remembered everything else: a bottle of water, my hat, my car keys, sunglasses, sun screen, my mother. But I forgot my camera. In searching Flickr for Creative Commons photos to use to illustrate this post, I came across a collection from an old friend from Arkansas (thanks, Clinton Steeds
!). Albuquerque is such a "small world" town that I accidentally run into people who don't even live… Continue

It's that time of year in Albuquerque again. TOMATOES. Nothing better than a fresh tomato, unless it's a fresh tomato with basil, crusty bread and balsamic. Yum Yum Yum Yum YUM!
And check out the height on these puppies:
Official Disclaimer. These aren't my tomatoes, but I am lucky enough to partake of them. The tomato master started with… Continue

This journey of discovering bits and pieces of 'Burque has been so much fun. For those of you that missed my post last week
, please catch up!
The best part of this has been having my daughter as a lookout. She is on high alert and makes the best suggestions for "mom's crazy project." I now realize that there are so many parts of the city she's not… Continue

When I took a pigeon with a broken leg to the wildlife rescue at the Nature Center (http://www.wrinm.org/enter.html) a couple of months ago, they had their rescued raptors out for show. I didn't get a picture of the kestrel (darn it), but I did get pictures of the great horned owl and the red-tailed hawk.…

There comes a time in the life of a Flying Star counter server when the taste of near victory lingers betraying the reality of defeat. Sure we’ve all been trained the same way: take the order next to the pastry case, ask if they want drinks and desserts, work on those as you work your way down the line -thereby shaving seconds, if not minutes, off of your time and providing the satisfied customer with drinks, desserts and bread rolls to nibble off of while waiting patiently for their dinner… Continue

One of the highlights of the upcoming Duke City Shootout film competition is the "digital bootcamp" classes which are free and, mostly, open to the public. This afternoon my wife and I attended a wonderful class by film still photographer John Maio at CNM. It was a treat as we learned about different opportunities and techniques and equipment. For example we were fascinated by the sound proof camera housing (above) that is required
to do film… Continue

Ever since the summer of 1975, when I hung a foldout poster from Elton John’s Captain Fantastic album
on my bedroom closet door, I have been a sucker for posters. Earlier this month I stumbled upon Puerto Rico Literario
