Poke and Prod

Our next-door neighbor Judy owns a dachshund named Munchkin.

Daydream

I've been working a temporary manufacturing gig in Clackamas the past couple of weeks. It's one of those jobs where you have to wear a lab coat or a Tyvec suit, and a hair net (and, in my case, a beard net; all of the bearded employees and contracted laborers are generally identified by height and gait and general amiability.

Little-Known Portland Stuff (and a Cool Website!)

Wikipedia was born in Portland, Oregon. It's true! I read it on Wikipedia! Of course I cross-checked other sources as well, but it appears to be legit.

That's only one thing I didn't know. Once I read the above fact, I had to find if I could dig up some more little-known facts. Turns out we aren't the city with the most superheroes (that would probably be New York City, because you know, New…
