We are currently building a tiny house on a 20 foot trailer and are looking for a place to call home in Portland.
We are a couple in our late twenties (blackjack dealer/baker and a school teacher) with a friendly 34 pound dog. The house is an attempt to simplify our lives and will allow us to focus on important things besides our finances.
The house is 139.5 square feet and comes complete with a kitchen, living area, sleeping loft, 32 inch…

I'm male. Males, on the whole, do not care to browse.

I'm about to use a word that strikes most people with either fear or elation, or at least a sudden urge to leave the room. Even elated persons might find their momentary joy deflate into dread, because this word, though ubiquitous in its usage, is a powerful one, and often hearing it out of another's mouth may cause some awful wrothful (say it three times fast!) consternation when it's not uttered just so, even when those hearing it use the word quite frequently.
Here it is:…Continue
When the rainy season of Spring and early Summer comes to the Pacific Northwest, we begin to forget how much that rain means to us, until the trees begin to blossom and grow their leaves, our flowers come out of their Winter dormancy and the bustle of people returns. We live for our short Summers here, realizing the rain is necessary for us to be so beautifully green. You will hear an Oregonian state that they love the rain, with an honest fervor we Oregonians will…Continue

The past several weeks in Portland there's been so much happening that its difficult keeping up.
The Trailblazers traded for center Marcus Camby. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and other black leaders were here talking about PPD (police) actions. There were protests in the streets. The Oregon BETC is under investigation. Mayor Adams is facing a second recall attempt. PGE wants to raise electrical rates by 7.4%. Jobs are down and taxes are up.
