Where should I go?
Where should I go?
I was hoping to get a recording of this video of me and snakes and Drew Carney for myself before it gets taken offline...
Posted this morning just to make sure no one tries anything stupid with an unlocked video store. Mmm... DVDs...
You know, those wheel things with the pins and the clockwork mechanical movement bits that looks ( Collapse )
I used to see them in craft stores all the time, now that I'm looking for one though, all the craft shops I've tried have given me blank stares and mumbled something about how they "used to" carry those quite a few years back but now they don't know anything about them...
Someone told me to try Home Depot but they didn't have them either.
Can anyone tell me of a few locations in the Portland area (east side/downtown,westside) where I can find some good deals on wood flooring. I am looking to remodel by house.
The Yoga Shala on N. Williams and Beech is having an art opening type thing with free champagne from 5 to 10 TONIGHT. The art's by Dory Goode, its good stuff. There'll be other cool artwork for sale/to look at and a yoga demo. I'll be demoing one of the Shadow Yoga forms. Other cool activities will be happening and you should show up for the champagne and to meet me if you are in the hood.
What restaurant here in town makes your favorite risotto? What's great about theirs in particular?
earlier today i was on my laptop when a lot of ugly clicking noises commenced and webpages quit loading. i closed the window and tried to reopen evil explorer - no dice. that's when i noticed that my wireless connection had randomly dropped for no apparent reason.
this is now three hours ago, and i STILL can't get it to connect. i've tried restarting my computer. i tried shutting it down for awhile. i tried going back to a restore point from this morning when it was still working. i've tried telling it to repair the connection. i've checked the back of my (comcast) modem and my wireless router to make sure everything is plugged in - it is.
i'm on our desktop computer, and the internet is working just fine and dandy. my laptop is registering that my wireless network exists, it just doesn't connect.
anyone have a clue what the hell is up and how i can fix it??
2. Is any Damn Portlander experienced with the Andisheh Center? I need culture. :[
does anyone here cross stitch? good stores for supplies? good places for lessons? or good books for self teaching? I've seen my Grandmother do this since I was a little girl and recently have seen some things that make me itch to try it, but sadly my Grandmother is about 3 hours away and cannot teach me.
My wife and I moved to Portland in August. O'Neill Transfer and Storage unloaded our truck in less than two hours and did an excellent job. Now that my wife and I are moving to another house in Portland, five miles and ten minutes away EXACTLY, we called them back to give us an estimate on our in-town move. Since we arrived, we have acquired an upright piano, two big bookshelves, and an entertainment center. Admittedly, the piano will be a bitch, but we got it to our house with a guy who charged $100 to move it.
Bob from O'Neill came out to our house, spent an hour pinching, feeling, and squeezing everything, then estimated it will take THREE men FIVE hours to load, move, and unload our house. The rates he gave me are as follows for our case:
Just moving the furniture: $802.74
Moving the furniture plus everything we have already boxed: $1,337.90
Moving the furniture, the items already boxed, and packing everything currently not yet packed: $2079.03
What do you think about that? We think it's inflated, that with an extra man it should take LESS time, not more. Why do our boxes add $500?
Steve from Rose City Movers will be at our home Monday morning at nine to provide his estimate.
