Triangle Community Substation

This is a sad story with a bonus history lesson. My boss and I had a lovely "working lunch" at Olympia Cafe. Good food, great conversation, and we felt like we had accomplished a lot regarding an upcoming project. Then we went outside and my boss' SUV was gone. We checked to make sure it hadn't been towed (we were parked in the parking lot and had only been there an hour). It hadn't - so we called the non-emergency APD line and got the… Continue

Walking the Griegos Drain Trail / Los Poblanos Open Space

On Sunday I downloaded the Griegos Drain Trail / Los Poblanos Open Space Walking Tour from www.walkalbuquerque,org. We've walked at the fields before but I like the idea of getting more information about what we were looking at and what to be on the lookout for.

It was perfect walking weather on Sunday and we had a blast!

My son… Continue

Familia de Burque

I moved to Burque back in 2004 and quickly fell in love with it. One of the things I love is it's history. The flow of people and cultures through New Mexico over the centuries is truly amazing. I was lucky enough to come across a treasure trove of glass negatives that were taken by an Albuquerque portrait studio back in the 1900s - 1920s a few years ago. I picked up a few hundred of them over the course of several months and began to do web… Continue

First Friday

We went to Artscrawl last night, I love Artscrawl and we made a plan to go to three different galleries. First on the list was Chroma Studios Gallery. Their featured artist this month is Nick Harmon of FHAB Concepts.

Nick’s work is amazing and really needs to be seen in person to be completely appreciated. He did their floor and also filled the main gallery… Continue

A Maize Maze-ing We Will Go!

We went to the Rio Grande Community Farm's Maize Maze for the first time today. This was my first time at a maize maze and we all had a great time. As we have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old I was very happy to find out they have two mazes - one only 1.4 miles and the other 2.3 miles. We chose the shorter course and were rewarded with only one mini-meltdown. And there were several places where we had to… Continue

Indoor Mini Golf - Exactly what I've been needing

So we've been watching Golfernoggins on Lomas going in for the last few months. At first I thought it was a golf supply place, but then we received our trusty Valpak and found out it was going to be an indoor mini-golf place! Oooh the excitement! We have a four-year-old and one-year-old and this sounded too good to be true. Indoor mini golf within walking distance of our house!!

So we went on Sunday and had a fabulous time. The kids… Continue

My Church at the Railyard

I could write practically forever about how much I love the railyard that sits downtown on Second Street. But a picture being worth a thousand words and all that jazz I'll start with two.

The pic on the left - a mosque in Cordoba, Spain, the right - the Machine Shop at the railyards, taken yesterday from a second story office.

I've been drawn to the railyards for a while now. I've only lived in ABQ since 2004,… Continue
