And Im not talking about boobies...
What's the best lift ticket deal around?
Good morning to all of you fortunate enough to be up/awake/at work :-)
I'm somewhat well acquainted with Pandora.com - and I love the fact that there is streaming free music with a practically endless supply of music.
Pandora doesn't yet have classical music options, and while they do have a "search by artist" option, I'm not so up and up on artists that primarily create instrumental music, other than Yo Yo Ma and a scattering of classical musicians.
If you have any favorite pianists, cellists, or know of some musical artists that might provide some relaxing mood music for my little nook of the dental practice, post away!
Enjoy the beautiful day that is to be.
Craigslist won't let me post to classifieds and I'm pretty sure my roommate is sick of this stuff being strewn around already (20 minutes later), so I figured I'd put it up here in the hopes someone needs a futon frame and pad.
I figure for the set $40? It's a real good couch, but if you sleep on it for too long (or have too much weight unevenly distributed, apparently) the frame can shift a little. The pad part has been spilled on just a little, but it can be washed pretty easily- I, however, don't own a washer or drier so I'm not going to do it for you. This was the office/guest room couch/bed so used not as frequently and was bought in April of this year.
I just got a new mattress/bed from Ikea so this stuff has to go, the sooner the better. Please come get it! I will be checking this compulsively until I can get back onto Craigslist, so I can guarantee a first response :)
I just got this action alert in my inbox and thought some of y'all would be interested. For information about the case, check out www.colorofchange.org.
There's a support demonstration in Portland today for the Jena 6, coinciding with a large rally happening in Louisiana.

Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church - 5828 NE 8th Ave.
They are asking folks to dress in black and to bring a candle.
Does anyone know of any good Indian food in Chehalis or Centralia?
If not, any other choice eats up there?
I need a computer guy/gal who can come out to my office RIGHT NOW. Anyone have any suggestsions?
The problem: E-mails to my boss are bouncing and I don't know why. I usually manage the e-mail servers and things, and 90% of the time I can figure it out, but this time I'm just stumped.
Can anyone recommend a computer/network repair person who will come out to our office TODAY and make it so that my boss stops yelling at me? I'd appreciate it.
More details: We're a small company, and cheap, we do our hosting through a crappy online host (ehostpros.com). Our e-mail servers are through them, and ever since they implemented a bunch of new anti-spam software about a month ago, our e-mail has been wonky. Now, I have been able to access that anti-spam software through cPanel, and for the moment, I think that I have disabled all of the filters so that EVERYTHING is coming through (annoying, but still...).
I looked at my boss's computer to see if he has a firewall or antivirus software that may be blocking those things, but I looked through the control panel of his antivirus software (avast) and it said that e-mails should still be coming through, even if suspect, but placed in a quarantine folder.
My boss's computer is running Windows XP Pro and he checks his e-mail with Outlook 2003 Pro. But the problem may be more company-wide than just him. Most everyone else is also on XP or XP pro and most of us are also using Outlook 2003 Pro.
Just out of curiosity, would anyone be interested in a ladies' bowling night? I'm thinking the Hollywood Bowl, which I've never been to but is conveniently located on the Max line. Other suggestions are welcome though. Also, would this sort of thing be better as a weekly or a biweekly or a monthly shindig?
I need a good functional gym. Functional meaning good for people who are working out for athletic performance over looks. I just moved here and I was so spoiled by my old HUGE gym that everywhere I go depresses me completely. I need a large, cold 25m pool with more than 3 lanes, good locker rooms that provide privacy, no co-ed saunas, and spin classes.
Anything like that around Portland and even better near Ladd's Addition? I'm desperate :( If nothing like that exists is there any place to swim in an olympic pool like a high school or something?
Do any of you fine Damn Portlanders have any recommendations on where to take our cat to get her spayed?
There is a stray cat that adopted us recently and we have reason to believe that, although it looks like she has been around people before, that she may not be spayed. She looked like she was pregnant when she first arrived (enlarged nipples, nesting behavior). But, more than two months later there are no kittens. So, maybe she miscarried.
We took her into the vet that our neighbor recommended (Hawthorne Veteranary Clinic around SE 24th Ave or thereabouts) to have her checked out when she first showed up. But, I get the feeling that they might be a little on the pricey side. I'm not sure. So, does anyone have any recommendations for a good vet that doesn't overcharge for her/his services, in particular getting a cat spayed?
- - - - - -
NOTE : I'm not looking for someplace with "sliding scale" fees. We wouldn't qualify for anything like that. Mostly it's that I want to find someplace that others have had good experiences with and that doesn't charge an arm and a leg. I don't even know what the median price for this type of service is! What's a reasonable price for getting a cat spayed, anyhow????

please have a nice night! thank you
don't you think? what romantic foreign country would you live in?
I was unimpressed with your lack of scene kids, snotty elitist Portlanders & the shitty service that all 6 (six) reviews on citysearch.com raved about. There was only 1 (one) hipster couple in the whole place & the sneer the aqua-netted, be-flanneled chick gave me was sub par, at best. The only reason I went was because I wanted to immerse myself in the Portlander Elite culture. Good latte, but no dice on the attitude. Shit. I even got a smile from the lady at the counter when I ordered!!!
Would I have better luck with the Division location? I find myself out of touch with the Portlander culture. I want to be snubbed for my pleather sneakers made by small, impoverished children & my dated but not dated enough clothes. Also, I use no hairspray. I'm pretty sure you have a coffee shop full of people who can have a good snicker at that around here somewhere.
Thank you, I guess.
P.S. Please do not refer me to the Doug Fir. They couldn't drag me in there using one of those new fancy trucks that drag stuff up cliff sides that they've been showing on TV. That's just a bit too much for this particular lady.
