This Week in Portland October 25 - November 1

Well, I don't know if you've seen the weather channel but prepare yourself: it’s supposed to be gorgeous this weekend! As I write this at 9am on Saturday morning, I am looking out the kitchen window into my backyard and see a beautiful sunny Portland morning beaming back at me. We've had an amazing Portland fall so far- the leaves on the trees are incredible reds, oranges and yellows and are simply stunning. The dogs and I have enjoyed many a bright, crisp afternoon either on walks in the… Continue

Please take care of your dog!

Hello everyone!

I am posting this message to warn you about the doggy park located on Columbia AVE. My dog, a standart poddle was attacked by a black labrador. The owner was walking 4 dogs, two of them beign pit bulls. The guy was rude and said "it happens a lot". Needless to say, his dog had significant behavior problems and it is a danger to dogs and responsible dog owners. Please be careful.

What can each and every one of us do?

Barack Obama has called college students to service

In big and small ways, we cal all give a little and receive much this season and throughout the year.

This idea that students can receive help in exchange for qualifying community service reminds me alot of when President Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." That's paraphrasing a little. I didn't look up the exact quote.

But this makes me think that… Continue

A stroll through Portland's Brooklyn Neighborhood

In my walking tour of SE Portland, I made it over to Brooklyn yesterday. Brooklyn is one of our oldest Portland neighborhoods dating from the nineteenth century. As such, it has many of those classic Portland homes with charm and character that I just love! I spotted several wonderful Victorian style homes, as well as the cute cottages, bungalows, and everything in between the last century and this one--including some in-fill housing that doesn't always fit the style of an older classic… Continue

A stroll through Portland's Clinton Street \ Hosford Abernathy Neighborhood

I adore Southeast Portland. It just has so much Portland character. I got over to our "Clinton Corners" today and snapped a few images to share. I live in Northeast Portland, so I don't get over here as often as I should (not like it's far, but you know, people who live in Florida never really visit the beach either, so go figure...)

When I do come to my favorite SE Portland neighborhoods like Clinton, I'm reminded of what a diverse and wonderful city Portland really is. I mean, we… Continue

A stroll through Portland's Irvington Neighborhood

What a great weekend we're having here in Portland! I snapped lots of shots this weekend to share! This photo album of Irvington was taken as I took my dogs on a lovely autumn stroll, yesterday.

The one thing I love most about Irvington is all the old, mature trees, and this time of year is great for seeing the autumn colors as they change from green to gold and red. Many of the trees are towering and some streets in Irvington have so many great trees that it feels like a tunnel… Continue

The more I see of Portland, the more I am in love with the city.I have seen pictures, that are the most beautiful. It is by far the most beautiful city I have ever seen. I like the rain and coldness never bothered me much. Getting too expensive here in S.CA. I want to move here and soon.

This Week in Portland, Oct 11-18, 2008

Hello, Portland! As the weather turns cool and crisp, it's a great time to go on autumn hikes in Portland and enjoy the changing scenery. I'm inspired by the fantastic photos that you are uploading to our Portland Photo Album. In fact, I am so inspired I might just pull out my oil paints and some canvases this weekend, and do a couple of autumn Portland paintings. If they turn out ok, I'll share some images of the paintings in an upcoming blog. :-) I couldn't pick just one…

This Week in Portland, Oct 4 - Oct 11, 2008

Hello, Portland! Can you believe it's October, already? Wow, I have to admit that autumn kind of snuck up on me, especially since my last weekend at Cannon Beach featured amazing sunny and warm weather! I posted a few new beach photos if you'd like to live some Pacific Coast scenery, vicariously. Now that we're heading into a season of shorter days, grayer skies, and cooler and…

We Need Treadmills-Help the Villa Maria Man Auction


My name is Brian Spencer and I am a junior at the University of Portland. Every year my dorm, Villa Maria, puts on a Man Auction.

Last year we raised $22,000 for a Ugandan Middle School. This year my group and I would like to try and perform a dance done by Ok Go. The entire dance is done on 8 treadmills. Here’s the link . Our gym… Continue
