Seeking Burqueños who have done the Bataan Memorial Death March

I'm on an info gathering mission about the Bataan Memorial Death March held at White Sands Missile Range. Have you done the march? If so, I'm interested in your overall experiences, whether you were a team or solo, if you ran or walked it, how you trained, etc. At this point, I don't even like to mention that I'm considering doing the march, because I know only what I've read on the official website http://www.bataanmarch.com/default.htm and… Continue

Yarnbombing in Albuquerque?

I recently started knitting. Today I was reading about the history of knitting online and learned about a type of graffiti called yarnbombing. Here's the wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarn_bombing . I love it 1) b/c the concept is fresh & quirky and 2) b/c it dovetails so nicely with street art which we've been discussing in the media literacy class I'm coteaching at MACCS. Anybody know if there's been any yarnbombing… Continue

Civic Cinema?

I was trying to get online info. about the Summer series films on Civic Plaza (Civic Cinema?) earlier today, with no avail. The one website that seemed to have some basic info. gave me the message that the website was at capacity with visitors at that time. I am perplexed as to why this event isn't publicized more.

Allergies Aplenty

Tis the season to be sneezing. And itching. Last year around this time, I started going to an acupuncturist for my allergies. It seemed to help. This year, I'm feeling too broke to see Dr. Hao so I'm taking Benadryl....and sleeping like a baby. A coworker and friend of mine swears that tumeric, in powder form, mixed with ghee and water really does the trick. I'm wondering about bee pollen as well. If you have any advice to share about natural, non-chemical, non-costly things that work for your… Continue
