Interested in a social network for all of Portland, not just the parents? Check out Bright Neighbor. It’s designed to bring people with similar interests together, whether it’s for learning or for commuting. Add in a layer of trust, and it’s a great replacement for MySpace or LinkedIn.

This was a fun book. I’m mildly worried that the protagonist will be one of those “I can do anything” kinds, like the one in Eregon, but the ride there will be fun. At the moment, it’s enjoyable and fun. And an easy read- I finished it in a few hours. It’s probably [...]

We were at the Holiday Expo yesterday, and our four year old really took a shining to these BeatBuckets. Basically, they’re a special lid for a 5 gallon (round) bucket. You might have one or two of the buckets around, in which case you just need the lid and drumsticks. The price on those [...]
Have you already gotten your Christmas Tree (if you don’t do Christmas trees, feel free to ignore this question). Allow me to recommend “Genetech” christmas trees at 1600 NW Skyline Blvd. There’s a huge variety of beautiful trees, from tiny little two foot shrubs all the way up to some sky-scratching behemoths that even Clark [...]
This was a great story.
First, you should understand that I like stories about superheroes. I like superheroes. However, I abhor flawless heroes. I can’t stand the “I can fly, I have super speed, you can’t shoot me, I’m super strong” hero that can whip anything into shape and has no problems at all. I’m looking [...]
