This Week in Portland, November 29 - December 6, 2008

Hello, Portland! I hope everyone enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving holiday! I ate turkey with all the fixins' two days in a row, and still need to figure out what to do with all of my turkey leftovers! I cannot believe the holiday season is already here, and I am in denial over the crazy commercial shopping rush that this season has often come to represent. This year I have vowed to only make a few handcrafted gifts for close friends and loved ones, and to donate any money I would…

This Week in Portland - November 22-29, 2008

Hello, Portland! The Portland blog is a bit late today as I am recovering from jetlag and my brain won't seem to function today! I've just spent the past week in Cancun, Mexico. I see we have several new members, events, and conversations on the website, and I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner to some of the postings ---but it cost $3 (for 15 minutes) to use the Internet from the hotel, and besides---I was attempting to stay away from my computer for a week (something that is…

Movie recommendation for this weekend

If any of you are documentary fans, you should really try to check out the film "Dear Zachary" playing at the Hollywood Theater this Saturday and Sunday only. Be prepared, this is a devastating film that will leave you emotionally exhausted and outraged and in tears multiple times but it is also an amazing work due to not just the subject matter, but the director's intimate association with the material. You can watch the trailer and read the amazing reviews at http://www.dearzachary.com/.

This Week in Portland November 15 - November 22

Hey there Portland,



Hard to believe that another weekend is here already. We had quite the week, eh? A day long monsoon with clogged up (leaves, oh leaves!) street drains wreaking urban havoc and some rather odd balmy November weather. Thursday seemed like a mini spring given our blue skies and that big bright orb (sun) for the greater part of the day!



I am heading to Pittsburgh, PA for the weekend to visit my brother and will miss what looks like some *awesome* weather… Continue

This Week in Portland November 8 - November 15

Ah, Portland...What a week! No matter how you voted, you'll no doubt agree that we all participated in a historical election on Tuesday. I am personally glad to see the election come to a close and am happy to resume a normal life (I've said a happy goodbye to negative commercials, political phone calls and house visits!!). I hope that regardless of how you voted, you look towards the future with hope in your heart.



Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and as always, I am beyond… Continue

This Week in Portland November 1 - November 8

It's raining...and it ain't gonna stop for a long, long time. ;-) We have been spoiled by a gorgeous autumn and now its time to pay the piper- uh, the weather man...But it's ok! The seemingly eternal Portland "winter" isn't that bad at all but it sure does have a bad rap. It's only rain, people! You'll spot the true Portlander on the corner waiting to cross the street like so: they would be the one NOT carrying an umbrella in a downpour.



So, it's time to trade in your outdoor running… Continue
