Galisteo

Maybe it's the adobe walls.  Maybe it's the dirt roads.  What ever it is, I like to drive through Galisteo any time of the year.…

New Mexicans have not forgotten...

Did you know that less than 1% of our population serves in the United States Armed Forces?

I'm one of the 99% who wakes up in the morning and expects to go about my daily routine without interruption.  I have come to expect that my Freedom is a right not a privilege.  However, all you have…

A Sunset Drive through Los Ranchos...

At one point in our lives, we've been asked where we might move to if we won the lottery.  For me, if I had to choose a place in the Albuquerque Metro, it would be Los Ranchos.  How can you resist the huge houses nestled under the tall Cottonwood trees?…

Descansos

After years of passing by these roadside crosses, I finally decided to ask my wife to take photos of these memorials.  It wasn't easy.  Many of these crosses (descansos) were located along busy roads and I-25.

One thing we never counted on was the emotional toll this project would take on both…

Albuquerque Dragway @ Mesa Del Sol

The season has already started at Albuquerque Dragway @ Mesa Del Sol.  You won't see the latest hybrid or electric car on the track but, you will feel the power of these cars in your chest and smell the burned rubber as they race to the finish.  It's definitely an experience everyone should try at least once in…

Spruce Park - Albuquerque, New Mexico

Tucked into Albuquerque’s cultural, intellectual, historical and geographical center, the residential neighborhood of Spruce Park (a.k.a. Old Country Club Addition) combines the brilliance of the big city with the quiet shade of mature, tree-lined streets.  Spruce Park quickly makes up for its…

You should have seen it in Color

As I look back now in 2015, I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones.  I remember my grandparents sitting down with me when I was a child and using old photo albums to illustrate our family's history. Within those albums were hundreds of black and white photos from their past.  It…

Exploring New Mexico: The Southeast Heights

My family moved to the Southeast Heights neighborhood of Albuquerque back in 1963.  So, my personal history with this area spans six decades.  I have always loved the beautiful houses and wonderful parks that I remember from my childhood.  Even today when I'm up in town, I try to drive through the area just…

If you care about what is going on in the Venture Capital world....

I've spent a good portion of my career working for High Tech start-ups.  I've believe that some of the best jobs in the industry can be found at start-ups.  These smaller companies tend to allow their employees to use more creativity and initiative over the process and procedure focus found at most large…
