"People are indeed moving into the state, but the biggest group of them are older. The state's population surge has come mainly from people aged 55 to 64."
Maybe I'm a Sociology nerd, but I found that surprising and interesting.
*edit* sold, no more inquires needed!
I bought 2 hot hot heat tickets for a friend of mine for their show at the wonder ballroom tonight, but unfortunately some things came up and she wont be in town....
anyhow I am not familiar with the band and but i figured with the diversity of DP someone on here would probably like to see this show and might not have bought tickets in time....
I bought them for 15 each.... but would be happy to get 20 bucks for the 2.... i can bring them to where you are (in reasonable range of NE) .... if you are interested in this please drop a reply here or message me at segwaysales @ gmail.com , first come first serve!
Oh and the show is ALL AGES in case that is deciding factor!
Did anyone else go see Guster last night. It was a good show....I even got to touch adam before when I was in line - he gave me a tshirt ! yay! Well, it was weird seeing a bunch of little kids...like tons of teenagers. And, to the teenagers making out - sick. I wanted to kick them.
Looking for a IT Job?
The company I work for is looking to hire my replacement. Windows XP, Server 2003, Exchange, AD, SQL, Crystal? Leave a comment and I'll be in touch.
Hey, is there anywhere in Portland that sells a few models of Roombas? Target sells only one model and I wanted to look at the others before making a choice.
Best place in town for hair extensions that won't break the bank? (yes, I know they can be spendy...)
After several years of short hair, I'm growing it back out, and I've never gotten extensions before. I don't want super-long ones, just enough to add a couple of inches, and disguise the in-betweenish quasi-mullet phase I'm stuck in right now.
My hair is in really good condition, too, so something that's less damaging to it would be ideal.
I have two questions:
First, what would you consider the most cost-effective way to learn a foreign language? I'm not talking about some 'learn french in 15 minutes!' book, I want to learn it well enough to communicate. How good are community college programs? Are they worth considering? Are there better private organization programs that are affordable?
Second, how would one go about finding some sort of painting group? Either a) are there community groups that get together to paint, and how would I go about learning about them? or b) some classes through some community learning organization that are pretty cheap.
The last few years its difficult to recall any particular lines or really even laughing at an episode. Is it just too many episodes to keep track of or has all the funny been sapped out of the premise.
Portland related because Matt Groening is from here.
Hello, DP! Would someone out there with TIVO be willing to download and send me tonight's 6.30 cast of the CBS Evening News? The non-profit I work for part-time, the Berry Botanic Garden, will be on tonight, and we'd love to keep it for posterity!
In exchange for??
PS: I still have two Entertainment books, good until November 1. Anyone? Anyone?
So: Healthy Pets Northwest on Alberta had some kind of issue with their credit card machine that caused them to lose some information. In response, they recharged everyone who came in during the time in question.
So: If you went into this pet store during the week of August 10th, you may want to check your bank statement, as a "mystery charge" may have suddenly appeared.
In spite of their claim that the charges for this week "didn't go through" my bank statement tells another story. Now I have to go into their store with my bank statements to prove that I've already paid. Nice.
While I've had a good experience with this pet store up until this point, their customer service has been shit for this issue. The asshole I spoke with said that there had been "a number of calls" about this issue all day, the response I got was one as if it were a customer failure - not the failure of the business. If I were unable to physically come to the store, my only other option for resolving the issue would be "mailing in your bank statements". Yikes.
Consider yourselves warned.
I am an aspiring potter looking for a place to make stuff, is there a place like this in the SE area? I am in Westmoreland and would love to have someplace close to practice my hobby. I have heard of PCC and will look there soon but wanted to see if anyone else knew of any place offering classes with fees or space just to work and fire your completed pots.
I love thee Damportlandia!
Does anyone else have a dried out nasally itchy feeling? My nose has been acting up and kind of running and my throat is scratchy. Is it allergies? Tell me Portlanders...
...That's not Adams?
Because its really funny to be making a PB&J with Dave's Killer Bread, imported Blackcurrant jam, and FMV Peanut Butter.
Does anyone have a Mac OS X cd that I could buy/borrow from you? It would be greatly appreciated! It's for a PowerMac G4, btw. Thanks a ton if you can help!
I imagine this is on TV and the radio, but since I don't have those, I've noticed it in mailings.
There is a measure coming up for a tobacco tax, and normally, I might actually be against it.
(My reasons for being against it are that A) Cigarette taxes do tend to fall more on the poor than others, B) it is a tax on a specific item, being written into the state constitution, C) it probably will end up feeding various bureaucracies)
But, I think that I have to vote for it, just because, honestly, the slick, smarmy manipulative tobacco company campaign raises my hackles so much that I am voting against them, almost out of spite.
i'll be in your fair city in a couple weeks and i'm thinking of going to omsi. i'm a bit of science-y dope, but i'm not hard core. is 'the human worlds' worth the $40 for my man and me? should i even consider omsi? i've heard mixed opinions.
