I'm going to Canada at the end of the month - does anyone have any Canadian money they'd like to get rid of? I'll pay the regular exchange rate at xe.net. Thanks!
Here at Chez Xeno-Varro, we have 3-5 sapling trees in the back yard. They came from the Arbor Day Society three years ago and have been lovingly tended. (Well, tended as best we can.) Now they are ready to be dug up once more and moved to their final locations in our yard. Where we hope they will live long and productive lives.
Do you know of an affordable professional tree service that will do this ? I am looking not just for planting but help with the locating and staking of these li'l green babies as well. We live on a wind-prone corner that has killed saplings and other plants before, so I don't want to rely on guesswork to locate and stake the saplings.
I have called several services but they don't return my calls. Possibly they don't want to bother with such a small job.
Bonus points for a service in N or NE Portland.
(Yes, I have spoken to Friends of Trees. Nice people, but they refuse to plant an already-purchased tree. They would rather provide their own. :/ )
I've just moved to Portland and am looking for a reputable place to take my 2004 Toyota Rav4 for a tune-up/oil change.
Not super keen on dealerships...prefer a local shop. I'm in SE, but willing to drive 10-15 miles for the right place.
I'm wondering what everyone's favorite places in Portland are. I'm not necessarily talking about businesses, but I'm looking for locations that feel distinctly Portland. I guess I'm looking for things outside of the norm. Things like Powell's and Pioneer Square are a little obvious. I'm looking for things a little bit off the beaten path. Perhaps a particular part of Forest Park? Up top Rocky Butte? Hawthorne between 37th and 35th? What makes you love this city we live in?
I am trying to get my Rexton hearing aids reprogrammed to my specifications. They are actually hand-me-downs and un-used (my grandfather purchased them, and passed away suddenly the week after). They were purchased from Costco, but they will not reprogram them as I am not the original owner.
The original thought was to return them, but of course, all the proof of purchase information has been lost.
I did a Rexton search on google, and none of their authorized retailers are authorized to reprogram hearing aids.
Does anyone know where I might be able to get this done?
i am looking for a place in the city that has a really nice view of the city, or is near a body of water somewhere pretty...mainly a romantic-ish place that will let me show off my city to my girl who lives in seattle! any help would be so fantastic. i know this city has got it, but where?
i have heard of mt. tabor park, pittock mansion and kelly pointe but I don't know where/what these things are. any guidance? oh! and day, or night?
I am looking for someone who wants to play racquetball who is:
-advanced beginner level

Free Black Bunny Rabbit (to a good home, not for hasenfeffer.)
4 months old, male dwarf. Very cute. Litter box trained. Comes with cage, litter box and 2-3 months worth of food. There is nothing wrong with him, I just took him as a temporary situation and need to find him a home.
xposted to CL.
anyone recommend a good doctor here in portland? maybe someone that is easy on the wallet...cause you know... no health insurance. Just looking for a physical and check up is all.
I finally found a t-shirt that fits exactly right and I bought a bunch, but I want to put some custom designs on them. Can anyone recommend places that will do this? If the place requires you to buy their shirt to do it, I'd be willing to check them out, but I have a tough time finding a good fit.
In X-Files, the number 1014 is a recurring Easter Egg. It commemorates the birthday of Chris Carter's wife. You'll see it in hotel room numbers and the like. It's also the name of the production company (or something like that) for X-Files
Similarly, someone was telling me that Star Trek plays the same game with numbers. Or does it?
I converted videos from my phone (MP4, I guess) to .wmv. Then, I organized them into the movie I wanted, complete with credits.
The problem is that my computer has no sound. Even though my XP is licensed, I had the audacity to take the parts from a machine that no longer exists and my stuff doesn't match up anymore. So, my suspicion is that DRM is keeping me from having sound. Since I can't edit the audio track, I can't have the final product I want.
Is there anyone who would be willing to edit the audio track for me? I was thinking of using the voice post feature on LJ to time the narration and just make it separately available. What do you think? I'd buy you a beer...
i hardly post here -- haven't in quite some time -- but i would just like to say that it is hard to meet people after college who have the same interests as you, etc etc. without those people living in florida or australia or somewhere else far away. i need to make new friends because i suddenly feel very alone. even if it is just online. for now. or something. i don't even know. i am tired.
Any suggestions for the following around town (pref. West Side):
music box repair
place that transfers vinyl to mp3
good, moderately priced dry cleaner
sedated dentistry practices
