NOB HILL--The temperature broke 50 yesterday. Time to think about gardening. But beyond that...time to think about being more than a consumer. Raising your own fruits and vegetables is one of the most empowering things you can do. And all you need is the tiniest amount of outdoor space.

Albuquerque's flagship eatery, Frontier Restaurant, is again closing itself off to the post-bar drunkards, all-night bookworms and hungry insomniacs.
The sign outside says it all: "New Hours"
Right now, the only sweet rolls you can enjoy between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. are the ones stowed away in your freezer.
This isn't the first time Frontier tried closing its doors…Continue
Not the Asian country, but that often overlooked local place:
The National Atomic Museum. http://www.atomicmuseum.com/
This is another aviation related place where I spent a lot of time as I was growing up.
As my dad was closely tied to Sandia labs, it was just kind of a natural hang out for me, and a chance…Continue

The Cradle Project began organizing in Albuquerque in September of 2006. Ever since that beginning a year and a half ago, we volunteer organizers have witnessed tremendous support from the local community! And we feel so fortunate to understand first hand the power and enthusiasm of this community. Thank you!

I was recently invited to go on a trip to visit a woman, Laura Stanziola, who sells bizarre treasures out of her home near Santa Fe. I know, why am I posting a story about a woman in Santa Fe on a blog about Albuquerque? I'll tell you why; She is impossibly fabulous and what she does is so freakin' great that I claim her on behalf of our fair city. She has people coming from as far afield as Maine to partake of the peculiar brand of awesome that she… Continue

I was making my way through Costco as quickly as possible today when I caught sight of a PNM rebate sign above a display of six-packs of energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs. The bulbs are regularly priced at $11.69 but with a $6.00 PNM rebate taken off automatically at the register, they cost $5.69 per pack. I wasn't in the market for compact fluorescent light bulbs but that's the nature of Costco, I'm just lucky I didn't end up with… Continue

I returned from getting my geek on at CES only to catch a lovely head cold. So no taste-testing for me this week. Everything seems bland right now. So I got to thinking after reading a comment about restaurant cleanliness in a discussion - how many folks keep up on the health inspection reports?
It's time to roll up a sleeve and be a Hero again!
