Hello peoples...I know I have been away for a while but I have been just kinda busy lately going to friends and relatives places that I barely have tim eto update.
Just a question...
How do you put playing music in the e-mail without recipients opening the attachements....just like the one ones you see on some spams like those encouraging ones where the gifs and sound play right away without the people actually opening the file....
best place in portland for art supplies?
So, is there a theater in this town that regularly screens old movies?
And I don't mean stuff from a few months back, or the occasional cult flick. I'm talking someplace that'll play The Birds or Modern Times or Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
hey DPers, i'm interesting in taking some kind of class in wine appreciation or wine tasting. i know that PCC has classes available, but i'm wondering if anyone knows of any wine bars or places like "in good taste" that have classes of their own.
p.s. THE SUN IS OUT!!! whoo hooo!
Has anybody here taken a TEFL certification course in Portland? If so, could you tell me about it? Where did you go, how long was it, how much did it cost, etc. So far I know of PSU's courses, but am curious if people have experience elsewhere, or what your PSU experience was like. Thanks!
I'll be up for the testing in two years, and have the required five years on the job experience. I was just wondering what sort of things were gone over, what I might be able to expect.
Of course, I don't actually expect answer, but thought i would toss this out on the off chance answers actually existed out there :)
Thought it might be cool to chat someone up who's been through the process or is a member of PMI, which i'm also looking into (although, very slowly because I'm overloaded with projects and school right now.)
So my kitty is sick, well not exactly sick, just acting weird. I took him to his regular vet but they didn't seem to think anything was wrong. I want a second opinion though, and I was considering taking him to a more natural, hollistic oriented clinic. I know there's one in the vicinity of 23rd and Hawthorne but can't remember the name. Can anyone help me out? Do you guys know what I'm talking about? Can you reccomend another vet (I've been taking him to Rose City clinic)? My kitty and I appreciate your help!
Here's a neat legal debate for you, DP, and all you attorney-types. Did Texas just in fact outlaw ALL marriage, not just GAY marriage?
H.J.R. No. 6
A JOINT RESOLUTION proposing a constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman.
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
SECTION 1. Article I, Texas Constitution, is amended by adding Section 32 to read as follows:
Sec. 32. (a) Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.
(b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.
SECTION 2. This state recognizes that through the designation of guardians, the appointment of agents, and the use of private contracts, persons may adequately and properly appoint guardians and arrange rights relating to hospital visitation, property, and the entitlement to proceeds of life insurance policies without the existence of any legal status identical or similar to marriage.
SECTION 3. This proposed constitutional amendment shall be submitted to the voters at an election to be held November 8, 2005. The ballot shall be printed to permit voting for or against the proposition: "The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."
Long story short, My apartment manager threatened to kill my husband, and we are suing him. We also need another place to live as we do not feel safe here anymore. We dont have good credit and dont want to waste our time on application fees, just to be denied. We also dont have a lot of money. So this is where I need your help, oh kind and wonderful and philanthropic DPers. We need a 2 to 3 bedroom place in the SW (ceder hills, beaverton, tanasbourne, etc). Hopefully willing to work with us on move in fees, or perhaps even give us a month or 2 free rent for signing a lease. Thank you all so very much in advance!
I love jewelry. I'm sick of my current office job and spend WAY too much time online looking at jewelry and trying to absorb more knowledge on the subject...
Anyhow, my question is:
I thought it would be fun to get a job in a jewelry shop. I'm thinking along the lines of Fred Meyer Jewelers, or Sales or something like that...I have retail experience but nothing really in fine jewelry. How does one go about getting a job in fine jewelry? Do the stores just hire like any other retail store? I'm sure they do background checks and stuff and that is fine. Do they hire people without jewelry experience?
anyone here attending lewis and clark college?
anyone know where i can get information on a performance happening there tomorrow?
is there a forum or something?
tracy + the plastics is supposed to be doing something at lewis and clark on thursday and i really want to go. anyone have any idea about this?
does anyone else think that winco has the best grocery store french bread ever? i'm sure you might be able to surpass it in specialty stores, but i'm just talking groceries here.
So, yesterday I went into Meier and Frank at Lloyd Center to look at jewelry for my mom's birthday gift. I found something that I knew my mom would really like so I proceed to talk with the sales lady (she was really nice, especially since we had to write notes back and forth for I am Deaf). She informed me that all of the jewelry would be on sale starting today and gave me the sale price. I told her that I would be back! Sure enough, when I walked in today everything was on sale and to my surprise there were a LOT of stuff 50 % off, some even more. I picked up the gift and paid only $53.55 when the original price was $140! That's about 75 % off, what a deal!
So you people, if you're looking to buy cheap stuff, Meier and Frank's sale is going on through Friday. :-D
It's one of those rare sunny days in Portland that occur only a handful of times a year.
I'm going in my backyard with a bottle of wine to celebrate the sunshine....all by myself :-(
[and maybe just maybe hit up mt tabor, which is pretty much my OTHER backyard].
maybe i'll stumble upon one of you up there
no. i'm not an alcoholic.
hope you're enjoying your day dpers :-)
I want to cook dinner for some vegan friends who havent visited for a while.
any good vegan recipes you can reccomend, or websites with such offerings?
Anyone know a good place with decent prices to get a coat relined? Somewhere preferable downtown or in NW or SW. Have you ever had this done? How much did it cost?
thanks in advance!
So i took some pipes apart to take a look.
anyone need any rods of wax? I have them formed and ready to beat someone over the head with!
Any hope that i had of the garbage disposal having been rescued by me scooping out a huge portion of wax on the day it happened has been eliminated! The trap stopped it from heading further down the drain. Thanks trap!
I put the pipes back together because strange gurgles were coming through them, and they scared me. So when i get back from florida and have time... i'll break everything apart and hope i can put it all back together again!
No sink means no cooking means... anyone wanna feed a poor sinkless rat?
I'm thinking this old garbage disposal might make a wicked candle too... maybe if i light it on fire... the wax will melt and i can use it again? It's... mostly metal... mostly...
Let this be a lesson to you boys and girls, wax and drains DO NOT MIX!!!
Sure has made life interesting though!
