When in need of a answer i come to the oracle of DP....
I am looking for anyone who has had good success with a mosquito killing device.... i have done google searches and seen a crapload of devices ranging from 20 dollars to 2000 dollars.... if you have device or have had experiance with a device and have some positive feedback about one i would love to hear it!
i know there is going to be some mosquito hippie on this list who is going to bark "let the little bloodsuckers be", please just save your time and skip to the next post!
This is a upcoming gift for a family member of mine who lives in a unwanted mosquito paradise!
Where are the best places to get pictures of Barges on the river (preferably at night)... Any one know when the schedule of arrivals or where one could get this information?
Any of you ever go with your parent to work on this day when you were younger? I did. And let me tell you, the kids nowadays (or at least the ones here at my office) are lucky as hell. I remember having to just sit there and actually watch my mom work. The kids here are eating candy and pizza, drinking soda and watching movies. All. Day. Long. I feel ripped off. And I have a headache. :)
Anbody's workplace routinely have LARGE cardboard boxes they get rid of? Refrigerator/washer size? Bonus points for close-in SE.
Hey, where in this town can a girl find
A) a pair of gold hotpants,
B) a gold unitard? maybe even a space suit?
p.s. my band is playing the Music Art Resource Collective benefit tomorrow night in NE, check out my journal thing for details if you want to come!
What's something fun/small that you would change? Sure world peace or $.25/gallon gas might be nice, but what about something frivilous?
Me? I would ban the tiny ketchup packets you get from to-go restaurants. Who the heck uses only one packet? It takes like 10 of them to get anything useful and then there's always some left in the packet itself. Augh. They should be like 4 times bigger. /end of rant.
I'm looking into getting a kitten to keep my cat Pie company when I'm away at school or work. But before I go about doing this, I figured I should get Pie up to date on his vaccinations to keep him from getting the kitten sick or vice versa. (And of course I'll make sure the kitten is up to date after it has been adopted.)
This is where you lovely people come in. In the past I have taken my lovely cat to the Vista Pet Hospital. But I'm just not sure it's the best choice really, and I want to be absolutely sure I'm taking my cat somewhere good. In your opinion, who/where is the best vet around? Are they accessible by bus? (I live downtown, but Pie has a box to be carted around in.) And finally, how much is this going to run me? I'm well aware that pet ownership comes at a price, and I'm willing to pay it if it keeps my cat in tip-top shape.
All helpful comments are greatly appreciated! I will refrain from turning this into a pictures of my cat post, despite how adorable he is.
(And I'm sorry if someone asked about this semi-recently, my internet has been down so I haven't been keeping great tabs on the community.)
Does anyone know the laws for wanting to take something that is obviously abandoned?
Lets say theres a bike thats been on a rack for the last 7 months...at least
Its just my size, and really cute...but is slowly losing pieces...just recently the front wheel has been removed.
ANYWAY, I've looked at Portlandonline.com and even called the main help number for more assistance. I was referred to some dude at the "bike hotline" who doesn't answer his phone. I have a feeling he's not the guy i need to talk to anyway. Its a matter of any property thats been abandoned, not a specific bike law.
According to the police department...I have to steal the bike, turn it in as lost property and put a claim on it. INTERESTING.
Does anyone know of a place that I can volunteer at during the weekends?
I love this community. It's so active, and a reminder of our community concern and love for Portland. Kudos to you all.

I've been working here for 3 years, and it's been a good company to work for. It's friendly and laid back.
That's pretty much all the information I can offer up, but I know there's always people looking for jobs!
Oh wise DamnPortlanders, my boss is a picky man and he's challenged me with finding super high luxury t-shirts for our office this year. Think the kind you'd pay way too much money for at Nordsrom's or at a boutique. I need them plain, so we can have them screen printed. Sadly, American Apparel is just "not high quality enough" for him. Yes, I'm rolling my eyes too, but if anyone has any genius thoughts as to where to find super soft, designer style t-shirts, I'd be very grateful. Money is no object (yes, I'm gagging too).
My Honda Odyssey has 106,000 miles on it. The dealership service
center says I need: front motor mount $320-330; outer cv boots
$330-380 OR new axle at $500-600; decarb and throttle service $162;
power steering fluid change $89.95 (squealing when hard turning both
ways); front sway bar bushings $170-200.
Also my air conditioner/heater system knob adjuster (internal to
dashboard not external) broke and is stuck in position at "heat" and
they say this will cost $95 just to look at and maybe $600-700 to
Except for the squealing and the heat/air problem, the car seems to run just fine!
So which of these items are the highest priority to repair? Should I
get a second opinion and are these estimates within normal range for
these types of repairs?
Yes, I need a second opinion! Where should I go?
Is camoflauge the new black? Did I miss a memo or something? I've been seeing TONZ of people either wearing camoflauge pants, shorts, or decked out from head to toe in camoflauge.
I need to find some rice paper(for salad rolls), and i'm sort of at a loss of where to look. Bonus if it's close in SE.
