So we're trying to convince our landlords that we should convert the lovely yet troublesome little pond in the middle of our yard into a fire pit. Does PDX have any open fire laws that would apply to having a fire pit in the back yard? Like needing a permit or something like that? Any other DPers have DIY in-ground fire pit stories or tips?
Does anyone know the least expensive place to take over 1,000 35mm slides to have them put on a disc? .39 each seems to be the going rate, but I was wondering if there is a place that could do them in bulk at a cheaper rate. I would rather not mail them out somewhere, so local would be ideal. thanks!!!
Does anyone have any recommendations for siding companies in the area? Bonus points if they are especially knowledgeable about Louisiana Pacific (LP) siding, as the home I'm looking to purchase has that kind of siding .
I have Googled but, you know, personal recommendations are better :)
I would love to rent a VW bus (with bed, refridgerator, stove, etc.) for a 10 day road trip through the Olympic Pennisula, San Juans, and Rainier in September. Does anyone know any company's specializing in such services? (I don't want an rv as it's just my wife and I but I'd love to not have to break camp every morning and set-up again every night.)
I just moved here a week ago, and have a couple of questions.
a) I have about 2 months before school starts, no job, no car (cute little road bike, though!). I live in the SE. What should I do? (under 21)
b) What's a nice date place with good vegan options? (blossoming lotus is out for several reasons, I've never been to nutshell)
c) Tasty thai place that delivers?
I'm having trouble navigating the wage laws websites and I figure someone here might know the answer anyway - I know that if you work over 40 hours per week (non-salary) you are entitled to time and 1/2 overtime pay. Are there any amount of hours where it goes to double time?
I am having a hankering for Bubble Tea but can't obtain some until later this evening... like post 9pm.
Are there any places around town which sell bubble tea past 9pm??
The thirsty demand an answer.
Anyone know of a decent place to photo fire dancers?
I'm looking for a troupe that is in full gear [as in what they would wear for a show] that I might be able to photograph.
I have shot fire dancers previously and would like to add more to my portfolio.
Thanks in advance,
where can I find cheap used ps2 games and consoles in portland? preferably around the NE...
Tell me your favorite places to go swimming! I've pretty much only been to Sauvie Island since moving here, and I'm looking for something a little more clean. I'm also interested in rivers to float down in inner tubes but I'm not sure of where I need to start/end.
I've decided to go to Burning Man a little too late to get a very affordable ticket. Right now the tickets are at $295.
I've looked on craigslist and found people trying to sell tickets (usually around $275), but at a profit. Considering the friendly community spirit of Burning Man, I just can't stomach the idea of scalped tickets. I'm a lady of little financial means, but I'd rather pay more to Burning Man and know where it's going than fund someone's little money making idea.
Do you have an extra ticket? If you want less than $295 for it, I am quite willing to pay what you paid and for your shipping costs. I just don't want to get scalped.
i was watching tv and this drug commercial was telling me that high colesteral can cause erectile disfunction. so tell me, if you had to choose, would you choose sex or bacon? girls too, even though you wont go limp.
