I want to make liquer.

In order to do so, I need jars. I'm thinking the gallon sized ones with rubber gaskets, and the little metal handle that you push down to seal the jar. They're airtight and easily resealable. Does anyone know where I can find jars somewhat like this? Does anyone have any better ideas?

I thought that I would post this link to continue the discussion about homelessness and panhandling that davethegreat started here.

The article states that the Denver mayor's office has set up "parking meters" for you to deposit your "spare" change into instead of giving it to panhandlers. This money is donated to programs to help the homeless. "It tells you that if you put $1.50 in the slot, you will have provided a meal for him and not subsidized his addiction by putting the money directly into his hands."

One thing I like about this premise is that the money in Denver is going towards additional housing, not emergency shelters, which don't do much.

Of course, it doesn't eliminate the annoyance of people asking you for your change, but it might be a better solution than the buttons. Which I do realize was hypothetical.

I'm in a spot of trouble at work. Help?

I have to put together a 3-4 page brochure to advertise an apartment building we're about to sell. It needs to be "professional looking". This is what I was given as an example. But I have no clue how to make something like that; I've searched up and down Google and Word templates and haven't come close to anything either. Help? I'm no good at graphic/document design, I just need a spiffy-looking template I can muck around with. If you can help me, thanks so much.

Thanks for your help with the credit union question the other day.

Now I have a different question. I have a bunch of junk that I want to get rid of -- old clothes, toys, stuff like that. I don't want to have a garage sale or try to do the free-on-Craigslist thing, I just want to take it all somewhere and drop it off.

Can anyone recommend alternatives to Goodwill?
EDIT: I feel sort of unenthusiastic about Goodwill for three reasons. One, their prices seem pretty high. Two, I don't see very many visibly disabled people working there. Three, their chief officer was investigated by Oregon's attorney general in 2005 for making too much $$$ for a nonprofit worker.

Goodwill might be great, but in the last few years it's been seeming less-great, so I was just hoping someone could recommend an alternative.

Resume Question

If you've been with one company for a long period of time, but have held several positions within that company, do those positions get separate entries on your resume? Is it better to lump them in as one job worked with one company?

And... go?

Okay, I've confirmed our reservation at the East Bank Saloon, so! Meetup is officially on Tuesday, August 28th, at 7pm. It's located at the East Bank Saloon at 727 SE Grand. If the weather's good, odds are we'll be outside again.

And once more, I won't be there this month, but y'all have an awesome time. :D

Michael Vick -- the saga continues

I know some of you were really upset with Nike over the way they responded to Mike Vick and his dog fighting...I just found this article on MSN and was curious what you think? Especially this part:

"I think we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals," the Knick point guard told Capital News 9, an Albany TV station. "You know, from what I understand, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors."

Drywall repair?

Hello O DP oracle-types!

I have a shower curtain rod that has pulled out of the drywall in the house I'm renting. The drywall needs to be fixed and the curtain rod re-anchored to the wall. It looks like a pretty straightforward fix, and since the landlady is buying I'm not gonna do it myself.

I'd love a recommendation or two of the "who ya gonna call" variety. I just need to get an estimate and get it done. If you do this kind of stuff, that would be even better as DAMNPORTLANDERS ARE VERY TRUSTWORTHY!

So, yeah, there's that.

Thanks in advance.

I wanna play!

my friend just came across some money and has decided to buy a nintendo wi - does anybody know where we could find one between now and saturday???

Thank you all you worldly and smart portland people.

Wii for sale

So I've had a wii for about half a year now, and I've tired of it.

I've got the system, two remotes, one nunchuck, wii sports, and all the necessary cables and such.

It's in near perfect condition, no scratches or marks or anything on it or the wiimotes/nunchuck. Barely been used.

Looking to sell it for what I got it for, which was $250. Would cost $300 new cause of the second wiimote.

Going to post it on craigslist, but figured I'd give you guys a headstart since you've been so helpful :)
