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.

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.

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.
