It’s Spring! The sun is finally coming out Portland!   We are starting to emerge from our homes, looking up at the sky in a stupor to see hues of blue.  We can sit on our front porch and began to soak up some Vitamin D.  Break out your sunglasses, uncover your bikes from the basement,... More

Portland has always had an independent spirit. There is still a little “pioneer” DIY attitude. Not because it’s cool, but because we can’t imagine it being another way. We are gardeners, chicken-raisers, makers, designers. Portland is a town where we love our makers. We have a variety of art and design festivals around town, from First... More

St Johns Bizarre 

How Bizarre? St Johns Bizarre. St Johns Bizarre happened on Saturday. Despite the drizzle, all was well.  I did my volunteer duty with the Boosters.  The opportunity provided shelter from the rain, and a front row seat for the Parade. The cavalcade featured The Clown King, horses, marching bands, and model T’s.  It did not seem like... More

Do you have a dream block that you love?  Or maybe a dream house you like to walk by at night and look into its windows hoping to catch any old house details feeding that voyeuristic side of you?  We’ll, this is my DREAM stretch of the Willamette River on the Milwaukie side.  The side... More
