a.k.a. Paula Manning-Lewis, she is one of DCF's very own local artists who sell on Etsy. My favorite part of Paula's Etsy profile is her description of her life here in Albuquerque. She has written a wonderful passage about how her work relates to peace on earth enduring for future generations but the part of my brain that is… Continue
There are days when I think I need to get a real job...maybe at a newspaper where I could do real stuff like writing articles for big money or maybe some down to earth technical stuff like, WIPING...This is a real advertisement from a real Newspaper right here in Albuquerque...It may or may not be the Albuquerque… Continue
Campaigning for Congress has taken me all across Albuquerque and the rest of New Mexico’s First District. I’ve met some great, some interesting and some eccentric people along the way. And, I’ve gained an even deeper appreciation for the place that we all call home.
After some thought, I’ve put together a list of my ten favorite things about Albuquerque – and, I’d love to get your thoughts in the comments. So, without further ado (Hat Tip to Kelly for the correction!)…
At about 10pm last night, I received this email from a friend who apparently has an unaccompanied grandma at his house. How that happens, I have no idea but she needs a ride to the Sunport this morning and we've volunteered for chauffeur duty.
Here are the instructions I received from her Albuquerque grandson:
First off, thank you thank you thank you.
Second, here are the details:
1) Her name is Lucy 2) She does not have a key to the…
Our Albuquerque airport has increased security measures to the point where nail-clippers and toothpaste are not allowed in carry on bags, but are we really safer?
On my last flight departing the Sun-port, I could not help but notice all the new security procedures. Waiting in line to receive my boarding pass, an airline employee informed me that I would not be allowed to carry any outside water bottles into the gate area. I reluctantly disposed of my half full bottle of water, ticket in… Continue
The best thing about being involved with Duke City Fix is that I have met some of the wild and crazy people that inhabit these cyberspace pages. I’ve met many of these folks through the organization of the Porque Burque Art and Craft Show.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. RiRiSynCyr when I found… Continue
Over the last couple of years Albuquerque has developed into a haven for creative studio/gallery ventures. Artist's seem to survive the brittle line between famine and feast by banning together and sharing space and energy. Whether it's a collective art studio, visual venue or co-op gallery, underground sound gallery, or just space it's bound to house some of New Mexico's most exceptional and motivated artists. We have Out' ChOnda, Broadway Studio,… Continue
Koi fish and waterfalls - not the first two things that come to mind when you think about Albuquerque. Under sweepingly pruned cottonwoods at the relatively new Sasebo Japanese Garden at the Aquarium/Botanic Gardens portion of our Biopark, you'll find both. The garden is named for our sister city in Japan and was designed by Toru Tanaka - whose guiding hand helped steered the famed… Continue
Mayor signs "green jobs" pledge at Albuquerque meeting of International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. Of course, each conference participant will flush approximately 654 gallons of water down…
Ok, so the internet is not good for conveying that awsome noise that often follows the introduction of a famous person into a crowd of obnoxious people but I gave it my best shot.
Can't wait to be digging into some haggis this weekend! lol probably not but I'll pobably be getting me some good ol' fashioned Irish Stew if there is a GOD. I'm the only one in my house that likes layers of onions and potatoes sandwiching cabbage and carrots (no meat, that would… Continue
