NM0002 – Bug Hunt

Rosa Linda

Hello everyone!

I have to admit I didn’t know how tough it would be to juggle full-time mommying with reporting, editing and podcasting, but it’s a challenge I’m certainly enjoying. And, based on the number of people who subscribed to New Mexicast after just one episode (“End of Trail”) it seems you’re enjoying the end results too!

This week’s story is about a program at the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center in the mountains outside of Albuquerque called “Insects, Arthropods and Arachnids.” When I saw a notice for the class in the local paper, I pictured lots of kids chasing bugs and thought it would make a great story. After you view it, let me know if you agree by adding a comment (just click the “comments” button above the video).

By the way, if you want more information about the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center’s programs, check out their website at: www.nmnaturalhistory.org/smnhc

I also wanted to mention that there are two versions of this video uploaded here on the site, so if you are playing it on your iPod, click the “iPod” button below the player. Otherwise it will play the larger, QuickTime version.

Thanks again for watching, subscribing and for all of the comments you’ve posted so far.

See you again in two weeks (even though I say “next week” in the video).

Happy viewing


Rosa Linda

P.S. For those of you who are having trouble seeing the stories, please make sure you have the latest version of QuickTime. Some people have had to completely uninstall QuickTime from their computers and then reinstall it from scratch. The latest version can be found at: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ (Then click on “Download QuickTime.”)

  1. Very nice episode, this reminded me of when we had the bug hospital with our cousins Anne & Jenny. Lee & I really liked how you added outtakes & bloopers. That was funny.

  2. Looks like something the boys would like that I never even knew about. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the bloopers! Shows how “real” you are.

    I had signed up through email about 6 weeks ago but never got an email so resigned up tonight. Hope that doesn’t mess you up.


  3. @Rebecca – I think we killed more bugs than we helped in our “bug hospital” but it sure was a fun time in Colorado, wasn’t it? On the bloopers & outtakes, sometimes I think I should just string a bunch of those together and call it a day! LOL!

    @Renee – They are going to do that program again this year, so I think you should definitely take them if you’re still in town. Glad you like the bloopers. Thanks for signing up for the email list. It gives me a nice way to keep in touch with wonderful viewers like you. Thanks for everything!
