Quality Solid Furniture vs. Planned Obsolescence

As a retiring Baby Boomer, I am increasingly frustrated by the accelerated obsolescence for various products we purchase. I remember the days when you could bring a television or small appliance to a local Mom & Pop repair shop. It was cost-effective, fast and didn’t generate waste. However, over time, small repair shops began to be replaced with national repair service in which you had to send product in for repair. It wasn’t as fast […]

Helping Keep the Rio Grande

Like the proverbial postal carrier- wind, rain, sleet and hail couldn’t keep us from helping clean up the Rio Grande river and bosque.

That didn’t stop more than 100 volunteers and officials from the City of Albuquerque Open Space from having a great morning.   Some Dapwood helpers getting fueled up for the […]

Helping our community

Dapwood shed some calories on Sunday for the annual Run for the Zoo. While the time for the 10K was no where near record breaking, it was good to get some exercise and raise money for the Albuquerque zoo, aquarium and botanic gardens. Anyone who visits Albuquerque or lives here knows that the BioPark is a wonderful family get away.
