This year I…

The Sunday Poem: Georgia Santa-Maria... Poetry Salon

Did you see that PBS special on Paris between the wars? The salon scene there fostered a mixing of ideas and an energy that was truly amazing. Today's poem has all of that. It sort of reminds me of what "Land of a Thousand Dances" was to Rock & Roll. It is guaranteed to make you smile and ask for… Continue

Belen: The Bridge Over Reinken Ave.

NOB HILL--When you're married to a hottie like MaryAnn White, you have to keep rolling out the good times. So last Saturday we hopped the Rail Runner for Belen to see them open the new pedestrian bridge over Reinken Ave. I could go on and on about the bridge, but let me just state a few items of…

Another Brilliant Show

The New Mexico Gay Men's Chorus (NMGMC) did it again this holiday season! The NMGMC gave Albuquerque the gift of music both somber and playful with "Vignettes of Christmas" directed by Mr. Aaron Howe. Mr. Howe came to the NMGMC just four months ago and right in time to begin planning and rehearsing for this show. While speaking with Mr. Gabe Torres (First Tenor Section) I learned that the chorus practiced every Monday - and their practice paid off. The NMGMC is one of the bright lights in my…

The Sunday Poem: Kenneth P. Gurney... Hours After Sumter

There it was--that first wave of bravado without regard for the lives and deaths of thousands which would inevitably follow. The Civil War began with brave shouts and cannon fire 150 years ago. The cost of slavery as well as the cost of that war were also inevitable and is still being paid.

Kenneth P. Gurney…

Walk...Don't Walk...Walk...Wait, what?

Mixed signals. Really, don't walk! A killer traffic light is on the loose stationary!

I managed to snap this off at Coal and Girard. Just when I was getting used to the directional changes on Lead, I see this traffic light. Perhaps it's a test for those who walk and talk on their cell phones? …

Do chickens decrease property values?

Backyard chickens are making a comeback as a standard backyard pet, with the added benefits of eating pests (like black widows!!), fertilizing the lawn, eating all the weeds, and providing fresh eggs. I have 5 laying hens- I've raised them since they hatched in April.

In October, my HOA started sending me letters saying that the chickens are a nuisance and a health hazard... they're our family pets!! Much less of a nuisance than barking dogs!! ARGH! Anyway, to keep my chickens, I… Continue
