I am trying to find a home for rent with a fenced in backyard and I have not been too impressed with the listings on Craigslist. Is there anyone who knows a realtor who does rental homes?

Please help!

Thank you!

St Patricks Day

Just a reminder that Wednesday is March 17th. Which as everyone knows is St Patricks day!

It's loud, it's crazy and it started last Friday night and will go on till Wednesday night. My wife and I played, in the "Fort Vancouver Pipe Band, up in Vancouver 6 times last weekend and will continue for another 5 times…

Portland Blog: This Week in Portland March 13 - March 20

Spring has sprung!

Well, almost. March 21st is the first official day of spring but we have been having the most incredible weather of any late winter that I can remember.

The cherry trees are in full bloom and many of the rhododendrons are coming to…

Sunny Saturday

My wife and I just got back from our dragon boat practice down at River Place Marina. I should say the dragon boat/bird watching paddle. We saw at least one bald eagle and a flight of merganzer ducks. Also some herons who were reported to be "getting a bit friendly" up in the trees.

After practice the team had coffee and breakfast at theLittle River cafe where we all discussed what each of us were going to be doing the rest of the day. There is unfortunately a lawn mower in my…

Portland Blog - This Week in Portland March 6-12, 2010

Hello, Portlanders. It looks like another lovely spring-like Saturday outside, and there is lots to do in Portland this week from the looks of our event calendar. I was going to suggest if you do only one thing this week in Portland, it would be to go downtown to the waterfront and take in the pink cherry blossom trees. They are bursting into bloom and it is one of my all-time favorite Portland "events" to see each year. Take your camera! And, it coincides with this weekend's annual grand… Continue

Can we grow a Solar Forest?

The past several weeks in Portland there's been so much happening that its difficult keeping up.

The Trailblazers traded for center Marcus Camby. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and other black leaders were here talking about PPD (police) actions. There were protests in the streets. The Oregon BETC is under investigation. Mayor Adams is facing a second recall attempt. PGE wants to raise electrical rates by 7.4%. Jobs are down and taxes are up.

The "Toyota Way"

I thought I’d never see the day, but there it was in a full page ad in the Sunday Oregonian (and god knows how many other newspapers.) In huge and straightforward type are the printed words …
