A word to the wise I probably caught this wretchedness from an ill advised holiday BUFFET party. Seriously, who serves finger-foods, buffet style during flu season (oh, everyone does)? Sure there were serving utensils and party toothpicks, but someone must have sneezed on my cocktail weenie ’cause momma is DOWN.
This is not the kind of illness that bodes well for a mild-hypochondriac like myself – tis’ just gone on far too long…visions of hiney-flu and death bed dance in my head.
Producers are looking for, “producers are searching for families with unique interests; parents who have ordinary and extraordinary circumstances; teen moms; parents with mean girls or bullying boys; culturally diverse parents; and blended families where both sides are seeking help. Producers want families from every type of background who are ready for the opportunity of a lifetime—a visit from America’s number one nanny, Jo Frost!”

“Made in Pakistan is an insider’s look into “The Most Dangerous Country in the World” as the cover story in Newsweek (October 29, 2007) called it. The documentary follows the lives of four Pakistani working professionals during the ‘declaration of a State of Emergency.’ These four individuals represent a multifaceted Pakistan – a country where politics, fashion, religion, debate and tradition intermingle – where one definition of an Islamic State no longer holds true.” – Synopsis, Indus Valley Productions
See the film on December 4th at 8:30 pm at DeVargas Cinema and on December 6th at 2:45 pm at the New Mexico History Museum. Made in Pakistan has already won the Audience Choice Award at the South Asian International Film Festival in New York earlier this month.
Months ago we were preparing to write the first NMXposé, a new Sindication feature that would highlight a New Mexican for their contributions to the community and their industry.
Our first choice was Jaimey Barreras, better known to so many of us as Jaimey B or just Jaimey for his smooth voice and sweet, entertaining sentiments that poured out over the NM airwaves. Well, before we could meet with Jaimey and put together the angle of the feature he was unceremoniously axed.
Luckily Jaimey is approachable and giving as ever and we were able to catch-up with him so that we could inquire as to our beloved baritone’s goings-on as of late:
Sindication:What have you been up to??? Jaimey B:…well I’ve been enjoying the time off with the wife… I’ve been locked in my studio writing music and networking with other musicians.
Sindication: What have you been doing? Jaimey B:Doing voice over work from my home studio. Business is slow but I’m remaining optimistic about the future.
Sindication: What do you hear most from fans lately? Jaimey B:I do keep in touch with fans on Facebook and Myspace and appreciate all their support.
Sindication: How are you feeling about the current state of ABQ (politics, economy, atmosphere)? Jaimey B: ABQ is is still a amazing town to live in and I would not think of leaving. ABQ radio on the other hand leave’s a bad taste in my mouth. I can’t even turn on the radio without a commercial in-progress or the so called talent going on and on about trifle (bleep) contests and they play the same crappy music for those stupid enough to think (they’re) getting something “NEW”. Thank goodness for my iPod!!!
Sindication: You were always doing so much to promote worthy/charitable causes, are you still able to be active in that? Jaimey B: Still helping out ACS and the Breast Cancer Walk.
Sindication: What do you want to say to fans missing you daily? Jaimey B: Thanks for the Love!!! Hugs and Kisses….
If you’re not already linked to Jaimey and you’re missing his warm-funny, connect with him on Facebook or Myspace.
While looking for the priceless footage of Tom Joles defining ‘sexting’ and even better, ‘tramp stamp’ for us as new Oxford English Dictionary words for 2009, I found instead that a certain leopard is showing his spots.
It seems that our own christened Paris Chavez will leave office with almost 40K of ABQ cash lining his pockets. In a blaze of un-glory former mayor Chavez is getting your dough as a workman’s comp payment for jumping a fence during the ’04 Bosque Fires.
Hey yo’! My back is JACKED! Where’s my monies marty?

When I was but a girl whiling away the hours of the corporate segment of my life, amid all the multimillion dollar conglomerate BS that took my stock options from nearly $100 a share down to a steady and holding $19, the most effective advent in efficiency I saw implemented was the ISO AUDIT concept.
This ISO concept partnered with the already booming film industry you’ve structured shows great promise for our overall economic, civic and status recovery. Heck, @Muggle505 has a great public fund raising idea.
Lastly, here are the two Bobs and Peter with their two cents on effective business management – so that’s already four cents more than you started out with on this day of your administration. – xo
The annual trek is a tribute to the tens-of-thousands of World War II Veterans who were surrendered to enemy forces in 1942, thousands lost their lives under the torturous conditions which they were marched through the Philippine jungle. Only over 500 soldiers were eventually rescued as POW’s in 1945.
A good glass can be hard to find. Some too short, thick or tall, too narrow, shallow, or fragile. To remain a friend to the environment and be grown-up about it, cheap & disposable is out and a quality, cost effective set is in. (you know, it’s all about recovering from the 90’s)
Well, we came across these great mixing glasses and picked-up a good sized load of ‘em for a party. To my surprise the boys went for these in a big way! The male vote was a resounding, ‘yes’ to the clinkers that presented a measured tally of their intake.
Cute. Boys are cute, I guess I had forgotten how much they like to measure “stuff”. Anyhoo, they were a hit and that may be worth remembering come gift giving time – visible graduations.
