Where are we again?

While skimming BoingBoing today, I glanced over an image that looked very much like rural New Mexico. Here's the image:

Where was the picture taken? Afghanistan, it turns out. Here's the original post, complete with at least a half dozen pictures… Continue

Fall Color Fix

Autumn in Albuquerque is sometimes summer and sometimes fall. Which is to say, if you don't keep your eyes open you will miss half the colors. It's 85 degrees in the SE heights and the morning glories are going wild. The peak is here- each day the blossoms are smaller and the leaves are starting to get scraggly. Still, a good sight to see for the next week or two.…

Artscrawl Video Now Posted!

The new Artscrawl video from the Albuquerque Art Business Association is online! Take a look and let them know what you think. It features voiceover by the fabulous Pamela Michaelis, and the fine dramatic work of local actors Don Morse and Courtney Bell. The gist is to give visitors a sense of this Albuquerque tradition and that it is anything but boring. What's the… Continue

Rise Up - The House of Bread Cometh

The first Albuquerque location of House of Bread is now open at Indian School and Carlisle near Los Poblanos Organics.

I bought a loaf of honey whole wheat and tasted a bit of the Dakota Bread - yum. Check it out for yourself. Looks like it's a franchise, with local owners.

In that handy little strip mall you can now get your organic vegetables, your… Continue

From Our Friends at Planned Parenthood

Dear Friend of PPNM,

We are shocked and galled!

Yesterday PPNM staff exiting our parking lot noticed an injured woman lying semi-conscious on the sidewalk in front of our surgical clinic. Staff immediately summoned police and paramedics who responded quickly, ultimately taking the woman to the hospital. She had not been a patient here, but had obviously been abused by someone somewhere else, staggered here and collapsed.

Meanwhile, several anti-choice protesters… Continue

confession time: I used to be a cocktail waitress at Brian O'Brien's

So, what's this about Brian O'Brien's burning down? I saw the raw footage on the Abq Journal's website, but can't find a dang news story about it.

I guess it's confession time: I used to work at that bar. Yes, I worked at the bar with the freaking dumbest name ever. In 2002, I returned to Abq from Europe--where my impending marriage had just crumbled--and I needed to line up some work so I could save up enough money to move to Colorado and start an internship with High Country News.… Continue

Are Teacher Pensions Safe? A Look At the NMERB Portfolio

NOB HILL--I looked at the TV screen yesterday afternoon while the DOW settled into a stunning decline of 777 points. The S&P alone suffered a paper loss of around $700 billion. $700,000,000,000!! That number may sound familiar--it is the same figure for the total of the so-called bailout that was defeated by Congress yesterday. Gone in one day. Not scared yet? How about this: if you had $500,000 in your 401K yesterday you lost about $35,000 in an… Continue

Morning Fix: Stupid Restart


Added by Somegye on September 30, 2008 at 5:30am — No Comments

Returning to Albuquerque

I’ve been staring at the screen off and on for days, trying to figure out what to blog about this week.

This happens sometimes when I’ve been away from Albuquerque for too long. And I have been away longer than usual, thanks to some extra travel this month. But in some ways, I'm never that far away from Albuquerque.

So I’m wondering:

Should I start with the most popular question of the week from my colleagues here in DC -… Continue

Monday Morning Traffic

I had the pleasure of driving in trafffic this morning at 7:45. As I was driving it seemed amazing to me. Everyone on the road is in a rush to get to where they are going so much so they are willing to cause traffic to come to a complete stop so they could move to the front of the line. Thank goodness I only have to venture in to that mess every once in a while. And business owners who have employees. Did you ever consider staggering your start times so everybody doesn't have to be at work at… Continue

Pinon For Sale


So what's the deal with autumn's side of the road pinon sales ?
Are the nuts hard to crack as poets?
Are they dee-licious?
Where do they come from ? Wha-da-they cost?
Are beetles devastating crops?
Please educate us on this autumn New Mexican phenomenon/treat.

Bragging Rights

The football game on Friday night was fun and exciting and the Matadors beat the Knights 24-7. Woo Hoo! they are now 5-0 and looking good. But there is something even more exciting......

My baby made it onto the Saturday newspaper!!! That's my "Jakey Snakey" doing the blocking.

He was so proud to show me the article this morning when he came over to visit and have breakfast (he couldn't resist my offer of bacon). And… Continue

A Maize Maze-ing We Will Go!

We went to the Rio Grande Community Farm's Maize Maze for the first time today. This was my first time at a maize maze and we all had a great time. As we have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old I was very happy to find out they have two mazes - one only 1.4 miles and the other 2.3 miles. We chose the shorter course and were rewarded with only one mini-meltdown. And there were several places where we had to… Continue

What would you do with $206,000,000???

Well, someone here in New Mexico is going to be forced to answer that oh-so-tough question.
Seems that someone (no it wasn't me, unfortunately...) hit the Powerball last night.

Must be nice..

If it had been me, I'd could think of a ton of things I would want to do, but nothing I would do off the top of my head, other than hire a really good lawyer and a really good accountant...

Maybe next time!

I'm sorry, but....

being a transplant from San Francisco I just have to say....


Why did the Isotopes have to change who they feed? I was perfectly fine with the Marlins. And part of why I moved here was cuz I could at least have some baseball, even though it was AAA, and it had nothing to do with the Dodgers. I'm a Giants fan through and through, so what is the most hated MLB team to me???? The Dodgers.

But NO!!! Today I find out that my beloved AAA team has… Continue

"Route 66 is Main Street and we don't want this billionaire bailout"

Economic Unrest on Route 66

People are gathered right now in Albuquerque to protest the Wall Street bailout.

"Route 66 is the Mother Road. Route 66 IS Main Street," a man with a megaphone shouts, "And we don't want this billionaire bailout."…

Walking on the River the joyous things we see.

Me and Paula took our morning walk along the river on Thursday morning. We are blessed because we have a tiny little section of Bosque that is not used by many other people. We had just come down the hill from the levee onto the Bosque when our dog Osa started acting really bizarre. She was looking to the east the hair was up on the back of her neck and she was wanting to growl but she was restraining herself. I looked at a quick glance and I didn't see anything. Then when I turned again I… Continue
