Heard the expression "short and sweet"? File this one under: "short and bitter."
It's the flash nonfiction tale of your City of Albuquerque tax dollars being repeatedly wasted, with subplots of zero communication between government "silos" & engineering/execution incompetence.

Last Saturday night, my wife and I went to the Lensic in Santa Fe to see…Continue
Some vintage photographs found on the internet web tubes! …
The gravest threat to this exceptionally 'great' country is not political correctness, but echo chambers. I have been reading the Albuquerque Journal my entire life. My late father saved a copy of the Journal from the…Continue
Recently, I was adding tid bits to the Abq Action Venue blog and I came across an amusing online site called, "The Art of Being Manly" which was fun and thoughtful, full of good perspective insights and fascinating podcasts. The concept of the whole manly thing was very interesting. Of course, I thought, "Was there really a need for such knowledge?". I myself am a woman.

There are so many places to see and things to do around here, it's really hard to pick just one to write about! This week, I decided to write about 10 (make that 11) things to do in the area. Technically, it's more than ten, as I fit more than one into each number. Next time someone tells you there is nothing to do in Albuquerque, direct them to this post! :)

I have driven by Chocolate Dude I don't know how many times and each time I say, "I need to stop there and see what they are all about!" Tonight I did. The inside of the place is really neat as you will see in the coming days. I tried an…Continue

Spoken and written language is largely how we communicate with each other and even with ourselves. It is an ability and capacity that we can easily take for granted - like breathing. We rarely pay attention to it or are thankful for it. We talk. We breathe. We listen (sometimes). We read…Continue
