What Does Your Chamber of Commerce Do for You? - 10/20/07 12:37 AM
Eloise Gift GRI, e-PRO http://www.%20newmexicohomesbyeloise.com/ A Gift for Real Estate One of my first acts as a new business owner was to join the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce (GACC) http://www.abqchamber.com/. I joined with no expectations beyond being learning and being part of a network of business people. Like so many others who join the chamber I, also was seeking knowledge. Time and a frequent question from friends and acquaintances: encourage me to focus on what it means to be a member of the GACC. "What does the chamber (Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce) do for you? they ask. It is a question that reminds me of President (8 comments)

God Calls From a Hot Air Balloon - 10/10/07 02:30 PM
During balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque, NM, it is not unusual to step out your front door to hear and see a hot air balloon hovering overhead. But what are the odds of discovering that the balloon is being piloted by friend or an acquaintance and is so close that you can talk to each other? This morning I had one such one-in-a-million encounter. I stepped out of my house to go to the letter box and heard a balloon nearby. I looked up and saw it hovering low over my neighbor's house. I waved as I usually do to the (10 comments)

I too, like this time of year with its fairs and fiestas and try to visit as many as possible. Our New Mexico State Fair ended two weeks ago. As always, it was delightful. It presented lots of photo opportunities, but in writing about it, I chose to focus on my friend's quilting achievement. I was very pleased to have a friend who (7 comments)
I wrote the post below last year to introduceAlbuquerque, New Mexico's annual international event and to celebrate my very first ride in a hot air balloon. I was very pleasantly surprised with the calm and peacefulness of the ride. From start to finish, from take off to landing, it was like floating on a cloud. Reflecting on that flight, it is difficult to reconcile it with yesterday's tragic events relating to a balloon flight. Of course, on a calm uneventful flight, we tend to forget how really frail our balloon vessels are. I wrote:Our annual 9-day balloon fiesta event in Albuquerque, (4 comments)
