If so, might want to make a withdrawal soon!
Say someone with a Segway wants to use it to commute back and forth to work. (Maybe they're fed up with gas prices, I dunno. Doesn't matter.)
What's the legality of operating these things on various types of travelways? I'm not after the economic or meteorological practicality here, I'm wondering about acceptable modes of operation.
What would be proper or safe, considering the maximum speed of about 10-15 mph? Side roads? Bike lanes? Sidewalks?
"HarvestMoon is the Full Moon closest to autumnal equinox. At this time of year, the time between successive moonrises is relatively short in the mid latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere, so we see a Full or nearly Full Moon rising soon after sunset on several consecutive evenings. This bright moonlight allowed farmers additional time after sunset to bring in their crops, hence the term Harvest Moon."
3rd Annual Portland
Brain Tumor Walk and Angel Adventure
I've done the one in Orange County, CA a few times & it was a nice event. The one in Orange County was cool, but it had started to taper off a little after the second year.

Since there are 2 more openings for the 2008 available I decided to put this out one more time (oh and it was pointed out i put the call out during burningman and that might have left some local artists in the dark!)
CALLING ALL LOCAL ARTISTS (LAST CALL for 2008)
Julia's Cafe just opened on NE Broadway and wants to have roving art each month from local artists.... if you or know someone who might be interested in this opportunity, feel free to bring a artist's statement, resumes, and/or your work or pictures of your work to
2130 N.E. Broadway
Portland, OR 97232
the hours are 8 - 4:30 weekdays and 10 - 4 sat
The contact who is normally always there is Lydia (manager)
I got a call while I was at work from my roommate, that the back door was open and my dog was gone. It probably wasn't closed all the way and he pushed his way out. He's a red and white Siberian Husky (he's my avatar picture), named Kodiak. He responds to his name, or to whistling. He's friendly and quite vocal.
When he was younger he used to escape frequently, as Huskies tend to do, but always returned home. I'm afraid he's going to get run over, because of a busy street nearby. If you see him please email me at kumori dot kaze at gmail dot com. The location is near SW 48th and Taylor's Ferry, in Portland.
Neal Stephenson: Anathem
When: Tue., Sept. 16, 7 p.m.
Tonight the Bagdad becomes an epicenter of nerdy as Neal Stephenson reads from his latest novel, Anathem, in which the Cryptonomicon has created another meticulously realized and obsessively detailed new world
(did the really forget to mention "SnowCrash"? still in my top 3 favorite books!)
My google skills are at an utter fail point, and so I bring you some tidbits of information that maybe you can compile together with an answer, or maybe just a nice snark at how little information I have.
I'm looking for a school of Jewish Education that teaches Gentiles (and probably Jews) on the different sects of Judaism and their history. I feel like it comes from a Rabbi's society for education or something along those lines. I know this must exist as an old coworker of mine took classes last November from them for a six to eight week period and said it was pretty awesome. Maybe this rings a bell for you? I'm having a hell of a time figuring out what it is.
Pollen.com shows Oregon as low - low medium. Bah, I say!
New Moon on Monday
There will be a fire dance through the night.

How does this affect me?
You may notice individuals lighting torches and waving them.
Why is service being changed?
We are staying the cold day with a lonely satellite.
Not really sure how many Durannies are here on DP....
Who else is going?

GRRRRR!!!! Why not vote for my husband? He maverick!!
What the hell. Wind turbines that small (yes, they are), in the middle of the city won't do anything substantial for providing electricity. Don't believe me? Do some research.
Perhaps I'm coming off as a little too harsh--it's kind of a neat idea, but doesn't fit the Portland skyline at all.
I just moved to Portland. So I joined this community! What a trip.
Anyway, to ask a quick question. I'm looking for a lap pool. Maybe close to NW but it's not important, important. I've done a lot of searching but the most I've come across is either defunct pools when I've gone to explore, or pools connected to fitness clubs. Not so preferable because I probably won't use the other equipment and fitness clubs freak me out a bit.
Any tips would be swell.
Do any of you play jazz or ragtime piano? My best friend and I are putting together a short vaudeville act for a Moulin Rouge-themed party, and have a couple of songs that we'd love to have played for us. There won't be a piano at the event, so what we're looking for is someone that we could meet up with and record them playing our tunes, which we could then put on a CD and bring to the event as our accompaniment. We would just be using the CD for the party, and wouldn't be selling it or anything of the sort.
It's just two songs, and we'd be willing to pay you in cookies. Your choice as to the type of cookies, though they'll certainly be homemade.
