portland neighborhood guide: In this scary economy, Glenn Beck says to buy real estate or gold! - 09/24/12 02:42 PM
With the Fed printing $40,000,000,000 dollars every single month...with no backing, inflation is going to hit us.  There is no doubt about that!  You need to have solid assets that are real.  I was watching Glenn Beck a few nights ago and he stressed that we need to plan for the future.....by having tangible assets.  Interest rates are still at an all time low and will probably go even lower.....maybe down below 3%   And house prices are at an all time low. This winter they will probably drop again.  When inflation hits, housing will go up....rents will go up, mortgages, interest, … (5 comments)

portland neighborhood guide: Portland Neighborhood Guide: Alphabet District, Nob Hill and NW 23rd District in Portland, Oregon - 05/21/09 04:30 AM
The Alphabet District is really not just one neighborhood. It encompasses everything from the Willamette River up the hillside to about NW 28 th and from West Burnside all the way north to Thurman-at least technically! The reason it is called the Alphabet District is that when the founding fathers of Portland first started naming the streets, they decided to start the names with A-Z- beginning one street south of Burnside and going out north as far as the streets would go. It makes it easy to know what street comes next when you are on the NW side of downtown … (0 comments)
