I've tried looking for numbers online, but everywhere sends me to a shelter and there's nothing on any of their websites that says what they can do about feral cats, just domesticated cats that aren't wanted anymore.
Does Oregon even have an ASPCA?
What workshop givers/places to learn have you had good experiences with? I would like to be in downtown or Beaverton.

Thanks for the help.
If the drilling was to occur, there would be years of waiting until the gas was actually available therefore an immediate price decrease is a long shot, if at all. And once it became available, Americans would gobble up this new fuel and THEN what? This isn't a quick fix! He's bringing this idea up in the middle of a nationwide (and worldwide) crisis, hoping to get support from desperate Americans with thinning wallets. Why not spend the time and money needed for offshore drilling to promote investigation of more fuel efficient options, education about these issues, and promotion of what green options are currently available? Have people still not realized that fossil fuel is a NON RENEWABLE resource? Throwing a bandaid on a severed limb isn't going to stop the bleeding.
Thoughts from the lovely green-leaning PDXers?
It's a '95 Geo Prizm (NOT a Metro, it's basically a Toyota Corolla), with 135,000 miles. It runs great, but the body is a bit of a mess. It's technically totalled, but really it's a just a cracked/broken front bumper. Also the AC is broken, and the inner driver door handle is a bit wonky. It also comes pre-loaded with liberal bumper stickers, and gets about 25 mpg.
I'd like to get $500 for it, but I'm open to negotiation.
Let me know if you're interested and we can talk more.
That would sell army men/tanks/etc army toys.
Miniatures, that is. Like, they're going on top of a cake.
Even wondering, the dollar store should have cheap army men, right?
Anybody know where I could find such a thing in this town?
Location is not a problem, as I am one of those horrible people who drives a car.

I'm appalled at how much it is to frickin lay in a bed for 10 mins!!

We could start a thread all about how she totally deserves that hemp-chafing.
One "samurai sword" and one "small home knife" do not make a 40-person melee of a swordfight!
"UNIX: the textbook (second edition)" - for CS 140u - $20
"C++ Programming: from analysis to program design (third edition)" - for CS 162- $25
"Selected material from: Dos Mundos (sixth edition)(no book code)" - for SPA 101 and 102 - $10
All of these books were used for Spring term, so even if there are new editions for fall, very few things have changed! I looked up the books used for these classes for Summer term, and they are all the correct editions for summer. All you need is a book code for Quia for Spanish which you can purchase(and I think instructors can request one).
This is a great value! PCC sells these used for more than $60 each.
All of them are in good condition and just have minor wear.
If interested, email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
much appreciation in advance
(by the way, since I know how I usually react to men trying to get out of paying back child support, my hubby gave his ex the proceeds from his half of their home when he became disabled in lieu of being able to pay his support payments until our life stabilized. it was about $20,000 plus she got a $9000 settlement from disability when he was finally approved so he is not a deadbeat dad)
His mom is suing TriMet for $2 Million
Way to drag your son's memory through the mud. There are ways to handle this, and this strikes me as a bit ridiculous. What am I missing here? The part that kills me is, "It names only the transit agency as a defendant in the suit, not Sandy Mann, the 53-year-old bus driver."
On another forum, the quote is, "A child's death certificate = winning lottery ticket." This seems harsh, but damn.
Oh, and my new favorite picture:
Too bad it wouldn't work as an icon.
If you have feral cats (or other animals) in your neighborhood, is it right to feed them?
Part of me says, "Yes". I would want the cats to be able to eat, even if they are homeless.
However, part of me also says, "No". I'm thinking that feeding them would encourage them to stick around and continue breeding feral cats.
I do feed squirrels and birds. I'm sure cats hanging around would not be a good combo, but is it more right to feed a smaller animal, and less right to feed something like a cat?
What do you think?
Also, does anyone know where I might find a cheapish picnic basket?
so lets's say i wanted to buy a house. preferably not an apartment, but a very small 1 bedroom 1 bath house. and this house would be in inner-inner-southeast, like between burnside and division, and west of say, 30th. and my budget would be, say $150k and under. would this be a feasible scenario AT ALL?ETA: ok i didn't think it was feasible, now i know for sure. back to the original master plan which involves renting until i wn the lottery.
What are pros v. cons of Portland? We've researched other cities around the NW and Portland was the best fit for us (large city, liberal, etc)
Also, whats the job market like? I'm a nurse, he'll be an accountant/CPA/MBA so both highly in demand professions.
And Real Estate? Can we get a 3 bedroom house for under $500K in a decent neighborhood??
I realize this is vague, but anything exciting you DPers could recommend would be sweet :) Normally we end up eating buffalo chicken from Wingstop and watching MST3K movies from Movie Madness on our weekend nights here, but it'd be nice to mix it up a bit, heh.
