The Funeral Procession of Illiana "Lilly" Garcia

I checked the news before leaving work on Tuesday evening, and was sickened by the news that a four year old child had been shot in the head during a road rage attack on the freeway. I skipped out about ten minutes early, and noticed that traffic was backed up on Lomas from I-25 past…

WHERE'S THE FIRE?

I am one of forty seven persons to still have and love a dumb phone but I have come across an app (on my wife's Smartie-Pantsed phone) that would almost move me to buy a Smart-ier phone. It is called, Pulse Point.


The application has been purchased for use by many large metropolitan areas in order to 'save lives' . Recently, our City of Albuquerque, New Mexico shelled out…

Morning Fix: Beard Comb

  • First "incubator" facility at Innovate ABQ will open inside a former homeless shelter. One hopes this is temporary. (Also, our Economic Development Director maybe needs to back off the hip lingo a tad).

Strange Days



“Strange days have found us. Strange days have tracked us down” –The Doors.



I can often be overheard spewing forth such tidbits as my continued genuine surprise at not winning the Powerball. Well guess what… I didn’t win again! On the bright side- I was only off by 5 numbers. But I have seen such strange “signs” in my world lately that it could happen. That… or it’s the… Continue

Lofts developer Rob DIckson... Mayor? not THIS year.

Rob Dickson sent out appologies withdrawing from the Mayors race about two weeks ago. The Public FInancing parameters appear to be too ridgid and difficlut for a number of the potential Mayoral candidates (Debbie O'Malley also withdrew due to frustration with the $5 donation public financing plan) This is something politically minded folks may want to work on for future elections.





Our local champion of "New Urbanism" Rob Dickson, has… Continue

The new Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque.

Job loss. Mortgage crisis. Failing banks. Stimulus plan. Recession. The news these days isn't exactly a source of peace of mind. For me, I've looked to local organizations for inspiration and motivation. Right in our backyard, the non-profit sector is pushing hard to make a real difference in peoples' lives.



I've volunteered with Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque for merely a year (and recently joined the Board), but in that time I have gotten to… Continue
