This Week in Portland: July 27 - August 2

Portland, my Portland,



Welcome to this week's installment of Where Did Summer Go? Just kidding-- its not freezing or anything and the sun, well, it comes out occasionally- but you know. Its just me being a bit of a drama queen about the fact I noticed a few stores are already putting out their WINTER merchandise. Upon seeing this, my entire being cried "NOOOOO! I haven't had enough yet- no, no, no, no, NO!!" **insert image of screaming three year old rolling around on the floor of a… Continue

This Week in Portland July 19 - July 26

Dear Portland,



I write this weekly blog next sitting next to a fire, shivering under a blanket, sniffling into my morning coffee and last but not least, looking out my window and wondering where in the hell did summer go?! Sniff. Pout. Heavvvvvvy sigh. Its about sixty degrees and cloudy (but weather-bot says tomorrow promises (promise?) to be in the mid-eighties and sunny). We're back to it, then. Ya know, summer. Good!



Well, at any rate, we've established… Continue

First Neighborhood Association Meeting

I went to my first ever neighborhood association meeting today. There was food provided by a neighborhood restaurant, I heard about the Neighborhood Emergency Team, heard about new businesses, some positive reports of conflict resolution with one of the bars in the area, and there was a presentation from Resolutions Northwest. All in all a well-run meeting,… Continue

This Week in Portland, July 12-19, 2008

Greetings, Portland! It's a gorgeous July day and summertime activities in Portland are in full swing. It's also cookout season and yard workseason. I love the cooking out part, but the yard work part isn't nearly as much fun. In my little urban Portland backyard, the bamboo I planted has sprung new shoots and needs watered, my pond needs some serious maintenance, and my flowers are all in need of pruning and my tiny lawn needs a good haircut. It looks like I have my weekend work cut out for…

Hello Portland!



Happy 4th of July! This might mean a long holiday weekend for some of you and if so, here's a sincere wish that its looooooong and restful for those of you who desire it.

Get Busy, Dude!

I have been slacking on my blog lately. It is not because I have nothing to write about or nothing cool to show you. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Since the day I really discovered blogging and other social networks at WebVisions 2008 , I have thought of little else. But there are other issues to consider when you enter the blogisphere, and I got a little spooked until I was able to sort it all out for myself. The main issue I had was about… Continue
