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…

Famous People & Albuquerque

Like many thriving cities throughout the nation, Albuquerque is the home, or close to home, for several famous people including actors, athletes, scholars, artists, and more. While the list is long, I have developed a list of these famous people that I recognize, pardon me if I missed any.

TV & Film

Why yes, there are several celebrities that are in the spotlight from ABQ, including:

My CSA Recipe

My sister and I have been getting a CSA box from Skarsgard farms every week since March, when she started an internship there. What I love the most about it, besides the amazing flavor and selection, is that we get to eat in growing cycles. It makes me feel more aware of the earth. We’ve gone through…

7 Things To Love About Albuquerque

Albuquerque is an incredible spot to live and to visit. While it is officially fall, and winter is quickly approaching, it is time to recollect all the fun things of the year, and things yet to come. Here are a couple of my most loved things about this city:

1. It's a tad bit of everything. While Albuquerque is a larger city, in the meantime it has that residential area feel. There are incredible things like the Kimo Theater, however no long lines of activity to manage. Wonderful…

Art, Kids, Albuquerque!

I never wanted to be a teacher, primarily because my mother taught in Albuquerque Public Schools for so many years. She recently retired, but towards the end she felt like she had no control over what her children (first graders!) were learning due to standardized testing and the lack of creativity in…

Cottonwoods and Perseverance

The cottonwoods are an iconic part of Albuquerque – their golden color against a dark clouded or turquoise sky in the fall and the cotton fluff that floats like snow in June, illuminated by the setting New Mexican sun, are memories that aren’t easy to forget.

Free (or low-cost) legal help in Albuquerque

The other day, I spoke with a gentleman here in Albuquerque who'd fallen victim to one of the many, many foreclosure relief scams that are out there. This one was clever: the company takes $5000, plus 10% of any savings the homeowner gets from his bank's loan modification program, but…

Scent of the South Valley

I think many people connect to the geography of wherever they grew up, whether that is close to the mountains, out on the mesa, near the river, and so on. My connection is with the valley, the river, and the bosque but more specifically, the alfalfa fields in the South Valley. It started when I was in…

How coloring my hair changed my life

When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story. I struggled constantly with my self-worth. I would talk down to myself. I told myself that I was ugly and, while I knew I could be a contributing member of society, I didn’t want to be. I just wanted to stay in my room all…

New Mexico is the best place to survive the zombie apocalypse

Survival of the impending zombie apocalypse is almost completely dependent on where you are. Guns and gear are an obvious necessity, but if biters are popping out of a dense forest — good luck turning around and attacking before they take a bite from your shoulder. This is no time for surprises.

If you're going to mount a tactical offense and establish a strong resistance against the undead, you want your geography to be a…
