On Friday, May 8, Clackamas Community College is having its annual plant sale!
I won't even mention how many different shrubs, trees, garden plants, veggies we've got in our overloaded greenhouses, and hoop house--but here's a little price list:
Hanging pots (Fuchsias!) 15 bucks.
Six packs and color spots: 1.50
Shrubs and trees: as marked (much lower than the nurseries, I promise!)
Sale starts at 12:00 PM! But, if you can, come early (line starts at 8:00 and it is pretty long. BBQ for those on line! Bring boxes to carry plants!
OK--bad marketing ploy alert!
For you people that have seen the movie (OK. I admit it, I've read the book (hated it), and have seen the movie--just because it is one of our Greenhouses that one of the scenes takes place in) Come see the Greenhouse that is featured in TWILIGHT!
So, I want to have someone come in and mop my downstairs, clean my kitchen counters, and maybe clean my bathrooms depending on the cost we're looking at. This is also sort of a tentative guest run to having someone come in once every month or two to do basically the same.
I do NOT want to hire Random Damnportlander #329 (or even DPer That I Know #92) to do this-- sorry. Just getting that out of the way.
I want to go to a service or hire someone who is a professional cleaner-- has their own equipment, knows what clean is and how to get there efficiently, etc.
Anyone have recommendations for services or individuals, preferably based on personal experience?
I have an automatic Seiko. The rotor has come loose and instead of merely circling around inside, it now flaps up and down and bounces on the other mechanisms. I cannot wear it this way because it will damage the rest of the watch.
Do any of you have experience with and therefore can recommend a watch repairman (more likely a clockmaker than a jeweler, IME) that knows automatics?
If you can provide the specifics of your experience (watch type, value, cost of repairs, turnaround time), that would be extra special.
I need a watch, damn it!*
*No, a cell phone will not suffice as a time-keeping device, specifically backstage where I use my watch. Cell phone displays are backlit and can interfere with the ambiance, much like you guys.
Hey DP -
What are the most cost effective places in town to buy:
Plants - the veggie and house variety
Seeds - for veggies and herbs
Who's more annoying: The people freaking out about swine flu, or the people freaking out that people are freaking out about swine flu.
Bonus Points: Utilize the scientific method in your response.
We are looking for a babysitter for our 7 (almost 8 month daughter). We are in SE and looking for someone for the ocassional weekend night maybe a weeknight here and there.
Any recomendations would be awesome. We would like someone experienced please.
Thanks in advance!
I am in the need for a few business cards. And I neeeeed them by Friday.
Any advice on where to look? Or maybe one of you DPers do business cards or can out of your own home and are in need of some business?
Or gimmie a lead!
So... What was the absolute best thing(s) that happened to you this (last & current) week?
(no matter how small)
(Gosh you guys, do I really have to keep editing?!)
this is probably a long shot (because who wants to give these up?) but i suddenly have two friends coming from out of town thursday evening, which would normally be great, but a group of friends and i are going to see star trek in imax on thursday. at 9:55. and it's sold out :( worse comes to worse, they will just get tickets for the 10:10 show on thursday not in imax and go in a different room, but we'd like to see if anyone has two tickets for the 9:55 imax showing that we could buy from you if you aren't attached to seeing it on thursday or just can't go.. and pay above what you paid for them (which comes out to an UNREASONABLE 16.50 per ticket, sigh.)
let me know if you can, but if not, thanks for looking anyway :)
