Portland Parks - Summer Concerts - Northeast and Southeast Neighborhoods - 07/15/09 06:56 PM
Imagine this: it's a soft summer evening, with a light breeze, in the early twilight before sunset. Now picture yourself lounging on the grass, sitting at a picnic table or in your own lawn chair listening to the sweet sounds of jazz. Perhaps you'd prefer a Big Band sound, funk, rock or a taste of Cuban Son. None of those appeal? You could choose some Rockabilly, Calypso or Salsa. And if these don't work for you, check the schedules below, because you can hear almost any type of music you like, at some point in one of Portland's Summer Concerts. (0 comments)
What a Difference a Hair Cut Makes! it's all about seeing the house. - 07/13/09 02:05 AM
Really need no words to explain this one. It's the before and after photos that tell the story! Perfectly charming house on the interior, well maintained. great updates, lovely hardwoods and perfectly chosen paint colors, high ceilings and large rooms, fireplace and rooms filled with light. But, it was hard to see from the street. Didn't want people driving by and deciding not to go in for any reason. Especially beause the interior photos were going to look like dynamite; the exterior had to look as good. Great clients - they listened and worked with one of the talented landscape people (12 comments)
Good News for Oregon -- according to Moody's Economy.com - 07/11/09 01:47 AM
MSNBC, in their web coverage of U.S. News and the Elkhart Project leads a recent story, "Which States Will Be Early Risers?" with the following: "If you want to be in the right place when the recovery starts, that place may be in Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Texas or Washington." Moody's is predicting that job growth will start to return in these 5 states in the 4th quarter of this year. That would be good news for Oregon, where the unemployment rate for the month of May, at 12.4%, was the second highest in the nation. June figures will be released Monday 13 July. The Moody report posits (4 comments)
Lots Going On - from a Commerative Day to Daze! July events in and around Portland - 07/08/09 06:39 PM
There's always a lot going on in Portland, and it's even better in the summertime! July is a great month: shirt-sleeveless-75-degree days (unless we have a day or two heat wave!) grab-a-sweater-for-later cool evenings and sleep-under-a-light-blanket nights make for perfect days out and about in town, or day-trips outside the Urban Growth Boundary. This Saturday, July 11, in the Pearl, at Jamison Square Park, Bastille Day will be celebrated. I didn't kow that Bastille Day doesn't really celebrate the stoming of the Bastille, it's an observance that commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille which was 14 (2 comments)
Waterfront Blues Fest & 4th of July Fireworks - an iphone version - 07/06/09 01:08 AM
These aren't the greatest photos I ever took -- but I was pleasantly surprized that they were relatively decent. I volunteered on Saturday at the Blues Fest - it benefits the Oregon Food Bank. Amazing music and all for the price of 2 cans of food and $10.00. Artists like Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Keb' Mo',Robben Ford, Candye Kane, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and many, many more. Sadly, the original opening night act, Etta James, had to cancel due to illness. The Blues Fest ranks as of the 15 Greatest Outdoor Music Festivals in North America, according to Outside magazine (June (2 comments)
