She was the *best* stylist I have ever had,
and had worked there for quite a while.... years I think.
I called this morning and she is "no longer with the company." And Dosha is so adament about making sure that people don't find out where the stylist or aesthetician has gone if they've moved to a different establishment.....
1. I am crushed! Does anyone know Alice or where she might be working now/next??
Did anyone else out there get the hair cut by Alice?
2. I am in need of a new person to cut my hair. Is there anyone out there that is super skilled with scissors and does an excellent job that you would recommend?
3. What is up with Dosha? Are they just really horrible to their employees or something? The turnover rate is just astounding..... or is that common in salons? Which salon in Portland treats their employees the best?
I am not going back..... I'm tired of it.
Looking for a quick bit of CMS (content management system) advice. I am wanting to help someone set up a cms-driven site where they can post information about a series of topics. So unlike most blogs (which are chronological in structure), this will be hierarchical by topics (and you can drill down into various topics and read articles in those particular topics). But I'm also not a big fan of most Wikis (with the run-on page names and strange text formatting/editing rules).
I'm familiar with opensourcecms.com and www.cmsmatrix.org, which have tons of info about various CMS systems, but not so helpful about *finding* something that fits the above structure (without me skimming 100+ different cms demos). So anyone have some pointers for a popular or easy CMS system that would work well for presenting a bunch of topics and articles, and not in a chronological or wiki medium? Prefer apache/mysql/php implementations, but will consider others if there's a compelling reason for it. Thanks!
When I plot my trip on Google Maps with the "use public transit" option, it gives me a very strait forward route with very little waiting time.
For example: NE Alberta to NW 21st and Kearny
on Trimet, it's the route they give me is 92 minutes
on Googlemaps, it's 40 minutes.
So, its no secret, my household likes cooking tasty turkeys -- we do one a month or so. And I love making turkey stock.
So, now I have this freezer with a bunch of stock in it. I've used it in the past to make yummy split pea soup, and risotto, and I know that I want to cook something along these lines today.
I was just gonna run out to get some groceries.
Any suggestions? What should I do with my stock today?

i'm DJing tonight at the Aalto Lounge during the exquisite hours of 10pm-1:30 am. Yeah, I know it's late for a Monday night, but F(r)UG your day job!
I'll be playing my special patented mix of super-sonic-soul, boogaloo, r+b, funk, and whatever else I dig out of the bins. It'll be special, whatever it is.
c'mon by and dig some hi-hat.
Two random questions for you...
1. I recently discovered the awesomeness of podcasts for working out. I feel in love with the Couch-to-5k podcasts by Robert Ullrey, but now I'm done with the program and need something new. Do any of you have either a running or yoga podcast you can recommend?
2. For Christmas last year I bought my husband a flying lesson. I thought it would be a fun gift but he hasn't used it yet and probably won't ever. He gave me permission to sell it. It is a $75 gift certificate for the flight school near Pearson Airfield in Vancouver and can be used for anything (it is enough to cover a 1 hour ride in a small plane). I'm pretty sure it expires at the end of the year. Are any of you interested in it? I'd be willing to part with it for $25 (maybe less if you can give me a good reason why you NEED it). ETA: Sold. Wow! That was fast!!!
Can anyone who has dealt with a similar problem suggest a good pair of headphones / earbuds that'll stay put during sweaty exercise?
i would love the dp's input!
I go to alot of shows, I'm a musician and I'm starting to do studio work and live sound. I know they make ear plugs for musicians with the intent being protection but not at the expensive of sound, but are those actually worth it or just a marketing ploy?
Also, where to buy. Preferably in downtown.
While their pumpkin patch might be considered a bit pricier than some, the activities and experience are worth it. There's a huge corn maze, a hazel "nut house" for the wee ones to jump around in, hay rides, woodsy walking trails, goats that climb in the trees, yummy food, fresh cider, a greenhouse and a huge garden of u-pick flowers, cute widdle animals to pet, and a store with lots of locally-made products and fresh produce. Even in the later October weeks I've never felt it was overwhelmingly crowded. Also, parking fees ($2) all go back into community projects. The drive out is beautiful as well.
The adults in my family all go without the kids, we love it that much. :)
With the full support of Alberto Gonzales' U.S. Department of Justice, New Jersey U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg is pushing legislation to give the government unprecedented discretionary power to secretly decree that a citizen is banned from owning firearms. The government would need nothing more than a "suspicion" using information it would not have to divulge, ever.
Called "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2007"--the Gonzales/Lautenberg bill, S. 1237 drafted by the Justice Department--is the broadest power grab ever proposed over the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. (To see NRA's response. click here.
