i need to know as much as i can, i want to research it.

Anyone have any info on vacationing in Jamaica, specifically the first week of May. Also, any travel agents, any advice would be great. TIA.
My friends birthday is coming soon and I would like to buy her a gift certificate for an hour massage. Where do you suggest?
So while in Hawaii I did one of those "crack open an oyster, get a pearl" things, right? And wound up with not one pearl, but two. Gorgeous pearls, one pink, one dark with a pink sheen so it looks almost purple.
Anyway, to get to the point: I didn't wanna shell out a bunch of money for the settings that they had at the place I got the pearls. Most of those settings had diamonds in them and were just out of my price range, especially since I might need two!
So when I get back into Portland I'm going to want to find a jewelry store where I can get them set. I'm leaning towards getting one put on a pendant and the other on a ring, but I haven't quite decided yet.
In other words: where can I find a jewelry shop that sells not-too-expensive settings, that will take my pearls and set them, preferably without charging three arms and two legs for the labor? I'm mostly out in Hillsboro, so the 'burbs are excellent; but I can go into the city too. These babies are worth it the drive (they're worth the cash too, but alas, I just don't have it).
P.S. I contacted Fred Meyer jeweler's already to see if they do it. Most of their stuff is a bit expensive too though.
Oh wise DPers, what would I do without you? Thanks for all your help on my digital camera questions a while back. I ended up purchasing a Canon Powershot A95. I love it. However, my hands just aren't steady enough. So, I need your advice. I'm looking to purchase a tripod for this compact digital camera, and I'm not sure where to go to find one. What are the best camera shops around town (downtown or westside) with the best deals. Are there any specific tripods that you would recommend? I'm looking for quality, stability, ease of use, and price. Thanks so much!
if you're always in search of a reason to drink, here's todays reason...
After 13 years, 10 months, 19 days, 17 minutes and 32.5 seconds, the prohibition of alcohol ended on this day in 1933 when FDR signed the 21st Amendment to the Constitution...
I decided a few days ago I'm ready to get inked. It'll be my first tat, so I'm looking for some advice/suggestions.
Do you guys have any recommendations for creative, and clean, places to get inked at? Closer to the West side would be cool, but I'd be willing to go just about anywhere for great quality.
I know tons of you in this community have tats of your own.. What general advice do you have for a first-timer? Any tips are welcome :)
Say, does anybody know if there's a transcript online of Howard Dean's PDX appearance(debate-thing) from last month?
My boss asked me last night where she should go to get her ears pierced.
I have a whole bunch of piercings and tattoos, but I live in Vancouver, and she lives in Gresham. She is not the tattoo shop type, but she knows (because I told her) that getting pierced with a needle over a gun is a good idea.
Anyone know of a good place to send her, near Gresham? Where she won't be scared to go in?
What is the one movie that you can watch over and over again? The movie that you suddenly have an overwhelming urge to watch out of the blue. Try to name just one.
I know I have a long list, but the major one is.... Four Rooms.
i'm stuck at home so sick i can't even walk to the other room, so i've been online for way too long. i've run out of things to look at. let me know if you know of any website that is fun or funny or interesting or in any way worth looking at so i can live through the week doing absolutely nothing but coughing up a lung. thanks!h
There used to be some guy on here who would occasionally post photos of himself at various places in Portland, always giving a thumbs up and a smile? I miss those. Does anyone else remember? What is/was his livejournal username?
So I've never really explored Portland when I actually lived here and now I'm back for Spring Break, I'm wondering what is there to do in Portland? I really want to explore the culture around here more and the nightlife as well.
So far, my friends and I had came up the plan to go clubbing and going to some cafes. Are there any really good under 21 clubs around here (we're all over 18)? I really don't care if it's "mainstream" or if it's alternative, as long as it's a good club.
In any case, I'm just lost as to what to do. I'm sure there's plenty of things to do but they're like hidden gems ^_^ Nice cafes, art galleries, alternative/subculture scenes, or even some good resturants! Oh, and I live in Beaverton so anything from there is good too! =)
Thanks in advance!
