While you were sleeping off your turkey induced coma, the Winter Wonderland at PIR opened. Surprise! It’s widely recognised as the biggest drive-thru Christmas Light display in all of the Northwest. It’s two miles long and loaded with new lights every year (of course some of the displays are ones they’ve put up [...]
This recipe is from the Over The Hedge; visit there for more crafts and recipes!
Crust: 2 cups of flour, 2 sticks of cold margarine, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.

Here’s an idea “stolen” from a message board, on how to create inexpensive coasters. You can use larger tiles to make trivets too.

It’s that time again: 103.3 has switched their programming over to 100% pure unadulterated Christmas saccharine. As usual, some good, some bad. But tune in and burn out for the next five weeks while we burn out on Christmas Candy, Cookies and Music!
The Queen of Kafooster is a wickedly funny mother of two energetic boys. Her post about the “insignificant booger” is a must-read. She’s a great Portland Parent who we’d love to keep tabs on. And if Obama doesn’t fix the US, we’d be happy to move to Kafooster, wherever that is. We [...]
What is this to you? Nobody is asking you to embrace their expression of love. But don’t you, as human beings, have to embrace that love?
