So, i live in a small town in Alaska and plan on moving to Portland when my lease is up in February.

We just made it in last Sunday from the Bay Area and I couldn't be happier. We are in the NW area and one block north of NE Alberta and life couldn't be better. I'm glad to know that Portland is home to one of the leading Multiple Sclerosis research and treatment centers in the nation- something I'm just finding out. I wont feel so alone with this.
It's getting dark out...so...early...ugh. I found myself over sleeping all this week because it is just darker in my bedroom. My alarm clock broke, and I tend to wake up naturally early anyway...but not this week. This is a sign that our darker (and wetter) months are soon upon us. But have no fear, it isn't too late for more Portland outdoor fun. In fact, you know we have lots of autumn classics in store, like the Maize at the…Continue
Woo boy, it is hot out today. This is that time of year when our Portland weather can mysteriously change overnight. One day it feels like summer time (like today), and the next you could swear that summer is gone forever because it is cool and rainy. I love autumn in Portland, although I am already feeling the nostalgic pang of this summer's past. I love to stroll through the streets of Irvington, which features huge old trees, and watch the leaves change colors. Soon,… Continue

Seeking recommendations for veterinarians in/around Lake Oswego. I have mostly geriatric dogs, so senior canine care is my primary concern. I'll be new in town so your suggestions will be a welcome guide.
Happy Labor Day Weekend! I overslept this morning and woke up to the soft pitter-patter of raindrops falling outside my window, and now that I have already gone out for coffee, I see that it is indeed an overcast and drizzly kind of day out there today, the kind that looks like it might linger for awhile. Like maybe all weekend long. Bummer. If you had planned on outdoor activities today in Portland, you might need to wait until mid-day, when weather.com is promising at least *some* sun… Continue
