Do we really need a new food blog in Albuquerque?
I say yes. So here we go.
This will be a different kind of blog that contains not only restaurant reviews, but also other food-related goodies, such as
My Top Ten Albuquerque Restaurants,
- My Ten Honorable Mentions,
- My Top Ten New Mexico Restaurants Outside the Duke City Area,
- Diets (Dukan, Flat Belly,…),
- Recipes (Including Diet Recipes),
- Fun Stuff and Free Stuff,
- Events, and
Stop back here often. This is a work in progress. Suggestions are welcome (feedback form at the bottom of this page).
I maintain the ABQ Top Ten page on Facebook.

The application delivering these musings is WordPress v. 3.5.1, which is insanely great blogging software. And easy to use. It is distributed as Open Source Software, and is free to use under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE v. 2.0. I have installed it on my own domain, abqtopten.com, which is hosted reliably (and reasonably) at Dreamhost. Nice people. Dreamhost will (and has) automatically upgrade the WordPress installation to the latest version that they have tested.
The look and feel is controlled by the installation’s default theme, twentyten, I have modified some important typographical settings (through a child theme)to present typefaces that are easy to read. Black san-sefif faces are used for all posts, comments, and pages, and are large enough and have sufficient leading for these failing old eyes to see clearly. I try to make it easy for the visually challenged to use this site.
Most images on pages and posts will display, when clicked on, in a lightbox superimposed over the original page. The original page is grayed out. If there are multiple images on a page, the lightbox frame allows you to cycle through all of them, forward and backward, by clicking the arrows near the left- and right-hand sides. To exit the lightbox display, click outside the box (on the grayed-out part of the page).
The WordPress lightbox plugin, Lightbox 3, is provided free of charge.
