Pool measurements for the insurance agent? - 07/30/07 06:21 PM
Hey all - I haven't run across this before, but then again, we don't have many in-ground pools around these parts. I have an Insurance Agent that is requesting parameter measurements of an in-ground pool for insurance purposes. I have never heard of anything like this before. What is the point of the parameter measurements when there is no information on how deep it is? Isn't it water volume (in the form of potential damage) that an Insurance Agent would be looking for? Wouldn't he want to know about hazards like the the diving board and slide? Should I always be measuring the (3 comments)
If you have not gone or considered going to the Body World 3 at OMSI, I highly recommend it. It's a mixture of science, philosophy and art all in one exhibit. Here is information on tickets. OMSI does suggest that you purchase your tickets at least a couple of days in advance. We went on a weekday with our tickets in hand (fortunately) and it was sold out. The show runs through mid-October 2007. Allot at least an hour and a half for the show.
Last year I took on an assignment in Gaston, Oregon about an hour outside of Portland. This isn't my normal beat, but I've been known to take rural appraisals here and there just for the scenery. And my plan was to take half the day off and continue on towards Gleneden Beach to meet my parents and my aunt who was in town visiting. I drove (and drove and drove) through windy roads that got smaller and more rutted the further I traveled. One last turn put me on a gravel road. It must be the driveway... No, wait, this is just (7 comments)
After months of pushing hints to Dave, signing up for our local humane societies foster care program and even finding a dog in need of an immediate home the day finally came. We did not end up with the first dog in need, a 105 lb pit pull with no knowledge of his history. (That was probably a good battle won on Dave's part. ) We did however find out that our friends decided that their two dogs were not getting the attention that they deserved and so they decided after much anguish to give them up. Yes, I did reprimand them for (6 comments)
Every day I walk my neighborhood and mostly admire, sometimes dislike the architecture. No matter what I feel about the outward appearance of the house, the entire grouping makes up the neighborhood that I love to live in. With the collage of houses, come the residents that share my admiration. The decades have morphed the neighborhood appeal into a mishmash of styles, sizes and designs. The ebb and flow of economics have determined how large or small each new home will be. It also determined when it made more sense to rejuvanate or tear down and rebuild a dilapidated structure. Like many inner-Portland (0 comments)
