Oregon Slugs

Slugs....Yes, some of you may think they are cute...but they have a way of making sure you have no foliage in your garden. They also really like your vegetables, and there is nothing like looking forward to a salad in the summer and going out to pick your fresh greens only to find a thousand tiny chunks missing from each and every leaf. Missing leaves I can handle with only a little irritation, it's the poop they leave behind that seals the non-edible deal. As exciting as this may sound,…

This Weekend in the Garden

  Well...the rain has got to stop sometime, and rumor has it that this weekend is a possibility for some outdoor fun. So put on your gardening shoes and lets talk plants. I am hopeful that you have already spread some of your perfectly winter-long composted material over your vegetable garden. If not, it's not too late. No tilling yet though, you will just end up with clumps of dirt. I like to spread out the compost and let it sit on top of the soil for a few weeks before I start sifting it…

The Oregon Cat Needs Portland to Help Save Feline Lives

As The Oregon Cat nears its First Anniversary with over 500 cats rescued, We look back with great pride and a sense of accomplishment as the rookies on the block. We also look back with great sadness for those we had to say no to, those we were unable to save, and those who had no one there to speak for them. This past year was a good start, but plans for our second year include tripling our rescue numbers and providing rescue and adoption for 1500 cats and kittens. As other feline rescue… Continue

Walk Don't Run

Yesterday I walked a 5K with friends, participating in the 33rd edition of the Shamrock Run. No running for me this time; I didn't adequately prepare (even though I kept saying I was going to train properly for the event, I instead thought about training really hard for weeks; no kidding, I put MAXIMUM effort into thinking about training, but it didn't help at all. So much for visualization!)

Neighborhood Suggestions?

I'm a self-employed artist, and will be moving to Portland in the Fall. I'd like to live in a neighborhood where there are other creative folks, doing their thing. Other factors that are important to me in a neighborhood are a sense of community, proximity to parks and bike paths, and easy access to public transportation; someplace that has plenty of social gathering spots, such as cafes, pubs, little restaurants, etc. and activities available like yoga, dance, open-mike and music jams. Any…See More
