  • Anyone looking for reading material guaranteed to put them to sleep at night should pick up “My God, What Have We Done?” by Susan V. Weiss (Fomite Press, 2011).
    The novel is an awkward blend of two storylines, one set in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project and the other following the married life of a couple identified simply as Pauline and Clifford.
    Pauline — who narrates the Pauline/Clifford storyline — is one of the most monotonous characters ever written. Pauline vacillates about her marriage from the time of her engagement through the end of the novel, and seems incapable of taking any action that would make her life more fulfilling.

  • Editor’s note: The Los Alamos Monitor will begin running restaurant inspection reports for Los Alamos, Española and Santa Fe in “Diversions” as they become available.

  • JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may be ending their personal relationship, but their professional one lives on.
    Anthony and Lopez launched their fashion lines — the Marc Anthony Collection and the Jennifer Lopez Collection — on Wednesday.
    Forty-two-year-old Anthony marked
    the launch with a ribbon cutting at Kohl’s department store in downtown Jersey City, N.J. Lopez did not attend.
    He says: “I always had Jennifer as a soundboard and vice versa. I’m really happy about her line and I saw all the work that she put into it.”

     

  • The Los Alamos Master Gardeners and the Los Alamos Photography Club feature, “Art, Gardening and Photography,” presented by Charles Mann, at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at Fuller Lodge.
    There are many who would  tell us how to photograph our gardens, but who can tell us why we want to photograph them? Mann, a professional garden photographer, has pondered the issues of art, beauty, nature and photography and has some insights, observations and conclusions to share, along with a panoply of photographs from across the gardening spectrum. Mann suggests that people learn to use their cameras as a tool to renew their enthusiasm for gardening as well as to  revive their appreciation for the hidden beauty all around them.

  • Those who have never experienced live theatre will have the opportunity to do so.
    Theatre is a unique experience, much different than a movie or sporting event — it is all about stories, emotion and local talent. Los Alamos Little Theatre presents the “8x103” one act play festival, opening Friday.
    The title, “8x103” represents eight 10-minute plays to make up a festival, and the three symbolizes LALT’s third such production, with others in 2006 and 2008. The included plays depict world views, relationships and  even a trip to France.

  • The Los Alamos Monitor has the inside scoop on what locals are reading. Otowi Station issued a current list of  popular books for Los Alamos readers.

  • Nestled in the hills about 22 miles north of Española sits a village rich in history. It’s a “blink and you might miss it” kind of place, but the scenery surrounding the village is astounding, especially during autumn.
    With its red clay, stone formations  and stunning foliage along the Chama River, Abiquiú offers plenty of photo opportunities for visitors.
    These days, the area is known as Georgia O’Keeffe country because the New York artist made her home in Abiquiú, but it is steeped in history tied to the Abiquiú Genízaro Land Grant.

    About a week has passed since the Seed Ball Party on Aug. 20. The excitement has calmed down, and we have been able to peacefully resume our way of life in Los Alamos.
    I hope that in taking part in this event, you will remember the festivities and meaningful work that took place all across town. Everyone that came out had a great time, and the burned areas in Northern New Mexico will begin the process of healing.
    I am sure you may be wondering how many seed balls we made that afternoon.  Officially, I can say that we made as many as we could have made. All four sites exhausted all resources, consuming over 2,000 pounds of clay and compost, and numerous bags of seed.  

  • As we look at our first asset in the Commitment to Learning category, we find asset number 21, achievement motivation.
    It might be hard for everyone to be motivated with a three-day weekend behind us, but motivation is different for everyone.
    I think I have heard it all, but if you have an idea to share, we’d love to hear yours, even if it’s submitted anonymously.
    I have worked with teenagers for a number of years and I have heard about reward systems for report cards, a certain amount of dollars for an “A,” and a certain number for a “B.” It seems that a C doesn’t garner any attention.
