City Library Renovation Deadlines?

Does anyone know when the library's Special Collections renovation will be complete?

 

The posted June 1, 2011 deadline was missed and the building is still fenced and unavailable to the public. Haven't seen an acknowledgement by the city anywhere.

 

I have lived here many years so I know that the "manana" attitude gets in the way of much that is started here so I am not surprised the deadline was missed. Just curious if we have a new deadline to aim…

Zombie Crawl 2010 in the Duke City?

Wow, I haven't written on this website in over two years. I was really worried about anyone coming to my page and not seeing my pleading to be reunited with my loving dog D.J. so I stopped coming here and started waiting for the e-mail responses. It wasn't meant to be, I suppose, but I still want to believe she is with a loving family somewhere.



In my time away from the site I have fully embraced a new obsession. I am undoubtedly a bigger, more obsessive fan of the zombie genre than… Continue

Laches, Lackeys, and The Great Outdoors

The Internet and Fixing the Duke City

Today, I heard about a really cool new service that utilizes the powers of crowd sourcing on the Internet to influence public policy. This service is called SeeClickFix.com. Basically, it lets users upload complaints/ suggestions for their city leaders (things such as garbage, potholes, etc.). Though I know 311 currently services this purpose, this is better because it opens up public forum/ discussion about issues and it allows citizens to track the progress of the city on making those… Continue

Duke City Solar - Part 3

Wednesday, November 25: The paperwork is done and the data is in: Adding a PV system is a good investment. If you've read Part 1 and Part 2 and are considering doing it yourself, this entry may be quite useful: It's all about paperwork and production. I'm not sure what to put in as images, but feel free to holler if you'd like… Continue

Duke City Solar - Part 2

Monday, September 16, 2009, 2:00 PM: PNM has just completed the final testing and my solar electric system is now turned on (Clouds form, rain falls). It's been quite a while since writing Part 1 so you may want to reread it for the backstory. This is a narrative and technical, detailing what's happened since last October and also the insights gained. Let's get… Continue

A Remarkable Happy Birthday!

How would you like to spend your eightieth birthday? Think about it. Yours may turn out to be as remarkable as Jean's and her husband's.



I have been seeing Jean around the neighborhood for the past 2-3 years, mostly at the gym but also at neighborhood association meetings and other civic gatherings, not just listening, but demanding answers from her representatives. At the gym she is not a gym socialite but an ardent, focused exercise enthusiast. Yet she seems to know and is known by… Continue

Day 1 of the world's only Slam Poet Laureate Program

It's almost here. After one year of planning, meetings, fund-raising in a less than prime economy, promotions, meetings, talent scouting, and meetings....the world's first Slam Poet Laureate program is preparing to take off. And what better place than right here in the 505?

After Albuquerque hosted the world's largest national poetry slam in 2005, carrying away the titel in the process, it seems only right that we should again be the torch-bearers and take the next progressive step in… Continue

The cost of the Q...





KOAT ran a story last night I found interesting entitled, "Are New Street Signs Wasteful Spending." It reminded me of a past post - "Your Q Dollars." - February 7th, 2008



I still remember the original claim by city officials -
It costs $1,400 to put The Q decals on the sides of…

Top 5 Cities to Build Wealth

Just found this article and had to click to see if my beloved Albuquerque maybe, just maybe was on the list. Well, it was! Albuquerque is number FIVE on the list! I've always said that this is a great place to live, but again and again we are ending up on the top lists for being a great place to be during the recession. So, keep your heads up people, Albuquerque ROCKS!!

Roadtrip circle- Socorro, T or C, Hillsboro, Silver City, Glenwood and more

One of the great things about living in Albuquerque is that it's roughly in the center of the state- this makes road trips throughout the state relatively easy- many can even be completed in a day. Last weekend we took a trip down south.…

Holy Posole, Batman! The Mayor Saves the Day!

Read the headlines on CNN, The Drudge Report, MSNBC ... and it will send you running for the hills with your shotgun and a suitcase of money. But with all the financial panic, high seas piracy, and new cabinet appointments, I was pleased to see that we in Albuquerque still know REAL news when we read it.… Continue

Proudly listening to AM radio

I have not listened to AM radio since the 1970's when I would hold my imitation Victorian transistor radio to my ear late at night dreaming of Michael Jackson (he was a total babe -before-) singing "ABC" to me. Anyway, my husband made a discovery in the car the other day; we have a progressive radio station here in the Duke city, AM 1350 now my station count is up to 4! I cannot tell you what a joy it is… Continue
