What happened Friday in Santa Fe

Since Someguy takes the weekend off, and I know some of you only get your news from DCF, as sad as that may be, (no offense Someguy, you do us all a good service), ya'll need to know that the death penalty is nearly no more in New Mexico. Our legislators voted 24-18 to repeal it today. No matter how you feel about it, this is historic, as NM may join many states across the nation that have recently abolished the death penalty. It is all up to our Governor now. It is on his desk. It is my hope… Continue

This Week's Inspiration: Indoor Edition!

Acrylic on 12" vinyl, "Dynagroove" Acrylic on 12" vinyl, "Dynagroove"



So, last week's hike took it all out of me, or I should say, my knee! It was swollen and sore all week and is just now starting to feel kind of normal again. Needless to say, we didn't go hiking this week. This totally bums me out, because we haven't missed a week in months and it's all thanks to my aging body! Getting old truly sucks! We did take a couple… Continue

Another hand about to be bitten.

This time the film industry folks. Can you believe there is a bill going into committee tomorrow that will stop the state incentives paid to the film industry to keep them filming in NM? You may not know, but NM is not the only state offering these incentives. We are just the best state for the film industry that offers them.



Uh Huh. HB725. Basically this bill kills the… Continue

IMPORTANT _ Property Tax Bills in the 2009 NM Legislature Session



2009 Bills (some left over from 2008 session) regarding Property Tax Fairness:



NOTE: Most bills with fiscal impacts upon state or local budgets, including this one, are not being acted upon in a very timely manner. The state's projected deficit for fiscal years 2009 and 2010 seems to be holding back activity on these bills which ask for a more level, fair method of valuation and taxation for all property owners.

Robert Mirabal book

I just finished Running Alone in Photographs by Robert Mirabal and it is AMAZING! Anyone who knows of Robert Mirabal, or anyone that is in love with New Mexico for that matter, will love this book. It is sweet, sad, full of characters you probably know, and has lots of Robert's poetry.

Albuquerque Architects Baker A+D Unveil New Site

Baker Architecture + Design

Albuquerque, NM



We want to share our updated portfolio and website with our Albuquerque friends and colleagues. It's always hard to make time to update the site, but in this "economic downturn" / these "uncertain times" (OK, who here is sick of hearing these two phrases?), we had this opportunity to take stock of what we've done over the last 6 years. We have a lot of new… Continue

Sit. Stay.

I posted this for a short time last weekend and then pulled it because I wanted to think about it for a while before posting again. There have been quite a few blogs and discussions about Albuquerque's future and growth, each one prompting me to wonder if I feel good or bad about it. It's a conflict in my head.



I moved here in March, 31 years ago. I was very disappointed with the lack of green, the lack of (what i knew as) ethnic food, the sand that blew in my face, the lack of… Continue

The Cult of Coronado (the Wiener)



Whether you’re a Burqueño, a Northeast Heightseño or a Nob Hilleño, you know it. I know it. Coronado Wieners are where it’s at…wherever that may be. They’re the bomb…and the packaging looks like one too--like a case of dynamite from a loony western cartoon.



I once debated with myself about smuggling a two-pound, pink package of Coronados with me on a plane. But I feared it would have caused panic with the TSA once the wieners hit the… Continue

Dear Albuquerque

Dear Albuquerque,





We met for the first time nearly a decade ago. You were meant to be a rest spot, a mere pause in my vector aimed somewhere else.



I had never even heard of Albuquerque—your name like a rock in my mouth, damn near impossible to spell. I had pictured desert palms sweeping upwards majestically, a globular sun bright as egg yolks. I imagined sand, coyotes, and glittery sombreros. I packed only shorts and t-shirts.



The giant Goodwill on Juan… Continue

New to blogging

I am new to this world. My main interest is in the area of real estate. I am an agent with Keller Williams Realty and have been in the industry for about 12 years now. I am a native New Mexican. Yesterday, the Albuquerque Journal Outlook had an article that said interest rates will probably be at 4.5% for a 30 year loan next week. Today interest rates are at 5.1%. I never thought I would see these rates. Also, the government is thinking about giving a $22,000 tax credit to homebuyers. This is… Continue

Geneticaly Modified Green Chile....

Why mess with perfection?



The New Mexico State Legislature has approved funding

to develop genetically-modified chile.

Is there anything wrong with our chile now that it

requires modification? Isn't it wonderful just as it

is, delicious and nutritious and flavorful?



Genetically-modified seeds automatically become

the property of its creators.

Go Tell Your Mama - It's Obama! (campaign signs in a post election world)

Wow! There were so many times in the past eight years that I thought a positive change to the national political scene was going to be impossible without a total breakdown of the system, a complete dismantling and even civic revolution. Last night, watching a new, young, charismatic leader accept the Presidency Elect of our country I was (thankfully) proved wrong.



Barack Obama and his brilliant campaign team have, I believe, changed the election process for the future of America.… Continue
