Ever have a stack of paperback or other books you don't know what to do with? I have a solution -
The Metropolitan Detention Center is always in need of reading material for the residents. Here's the only catch - if you want to donate books they must be given to one of the approved jail ministries/ministers. The ministry can carry them in.
Contact Calvary Chapel or Light & Liberty Ministries to give them the books. When you contact them be sure and ask what kind of… Continue

Recently I posted a blog about gay hate crimes and bullying that resulted in some lively comments. That was very good.
Now the City and UNM is stepping up to the plate. Today KRKE News featured an article on a gay community forum, the link is below. It was good of them to announce that UNM has a support system in place but beyond that there are others like New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) and their under 21 group, Equality NM, and other events that can be found through Common… Continue

When I watch touring shows, I often look for the kinds of lights they carry. Not all shows carry their own lights, but I do like to know what the companies who carry lights are bringing on their tour.
I just watched Grease
Wednesday night and was interested to see that they had an array of… Continue

When I say "Route 66 in New Mexico," what do you think of? Do you see the glow of neon signs shimmering on Central Avenue after a monsoon? Do you imagine the curved corners of stuccoed 1950s motels, now worn and cracked under the weight of time? Do you hear the revving of an old engine as an ancient Chrysler makes its way through the lights downtown? We think of Route 66 as Central Avenue, but there is another Route 66 in New Mexico.
In the… Continue

Sadly in the United States hate crimes against gay people continue. Just today Tyler Clementi of New Jersey committed suicide because he was "outed". Last week Seth Walsh of Texas committed suicide because he was taunted by his junior high school classmates.
Recent studies show that nine out of ten gay kids are harrassed and gay kids are four times more likely to commit suicide than straight kids. Blame it on outdated religious principles, blame it on the political right, blame it on… Continue

If you're like me, you like getting away. Far, far away. But unfortunately, if you're like me, your trusty steed is a fuel-efficient sedan that was never meant to go off-road. Not that I'm complaining . . . 99 percent of the time, I love my reliable little ride. But it can't go far into the backcountry. So for those of you also saddled with low-clearance rides, I wanted to share a little bit of backcountry that is sedan-accessible and is an easy… Continue

It's approaching a month since we've returned home, and being “idle” (are people who are searching for work “idle”? I think NOT) has started to gently nibble at my joie de vivre.
I just a couple of days ago received a form letter via email from a prospective employer thanking me for interviewing but informing me that the position has been filled. Most other applications I've made have been via website and email, a process I find much more stressful than face-to-face interviews (for… Continue

I'm just walking in from the Kimo Theatre where School for Wives is playing. It's an oldie (right out of 17th century France) but a goodie. It's a comedy. I'll spare the details because that happens to be in the events section of DCF under the same title.
Tonight was opening night and the show was spot on. Save for an awkward moment before the play started when the comic relief duo started warming up the audience and we weren't quite prepared for it. The cast put on a great show and… Continue

So the Journal had an article weighing the level of anticipation up at everyone's favorite seasonal jaunt- the Fall trip to Dixon's Apple Orchard
in Pena Blanca, NM. I'd link to it, but they're stuck in the 90's with their subscription paradigm. So you'll just have to trust me. Or read the fourth line-item down on… Continue

I always like to litter my posts with some nice photos. Last week, I was thinking about what to write for this week's entry. I thought, ah-ha!, I should just toss my camera into my purse and take pictures of interesting things as I go along. Then I'll write it up. So naturally I forgot to put my camera in my purse. And then I forgot some more. And I saw all sorts of interesting things, but don't have pictures to prove them. I'll just have to… Continue

I don’t know about ya’ll but for me, eating too much and too late in the evening leads to odd dreams. Last night’s offering found me enjoying an Emmy prize with Jon Hamm (he plays Don Draper in Mad Men
). Too bad the prize was two seats at the Olympic Games where we watched a yak-driving competition, and there was only one team and one yak. I was disappointed, naturally, and Mr. Hamm was livid. Where does this stuff come from?
Our travel date is fast approaching and the missus… Continue
