Portland Blog- This Week in Portland November 28 - December 5

Hey Portland,



Had a great Thanksgiving and hope you did as well. Family, friends, hounds and pounds and pounds of food. Two desserts should fully explain the whole tragic tale!



What a gorgeous Black Friday. I didn't spend a dime (if you don't count coffee, gas and dinner) and had a wonderful day enjoying the gift of this incredible weather. I went for a looooooong run and took to Basset's to the dog friendly Overlook Park where we had a blast running with insane Afghan… Continue

Portland PET CHARITY makes final rounds of Rachel Ray - NEED YOUR VOTES!!!

Hey fine people & pet lovers of Portland!



I was going to post this in the Pet-friendly group, but figured it goes well beyond that grouping as it's a cause that affects Portlanders in general, not just pet lovers.



Project POOCH is only 2 rounds away from winning $50,000 in Rachael Ray's Mutt Madness but we need your help to make it to the finals.



Project Pooch have rescued hundreds of animals, and juvenile offenders, to help both go on to live happy… Continue

Portland Blog- This Week in Portland November 21 - 28

Ah, its only a few days away now: Thanksgiving! Here's hoping you have something fun planned and get a day or two to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends. I'm hoping for a nice bird, a relaxing day and some time at the dog park with my crazy hounds.



And now because it is suddenly so obviously winter (brrrr!), here are some Portland home winterizing tips:



Check your downspouts and drains to make sure water is draining properly. If necessary, clean your… Continue

Portland Blog - This Week in Portland - November 7-14, 2009

I can hardly believe we are at the end of the first week in November already...my, how time flies. I need to get out and put the "Moss Out" on the lawn. My white picket fence and arbor is already turning green, and my rose bushes need a winter trim. And I already forgot to plant flower bulbs for next spring, and now it is soggy and wet outside so I may not get to that at all this year. I was shopping in Fred Meyer on Halloween looking for a last minute costume and was horrified to discover… Continue

This fascinating film chronicles the important role of Black community newspapers and their political and historic contribution to literacy under slavery, civil rights, and liberation struggles.

Stick around for a post-video discussion on the role of radical journalists and news… Continue
