Silvan Ridge-- Early Muscat-- Semi Sparkling White Wine

Does anyone know where I can find this?

PS. It is the best sweet white wine I have ever tasted. It smells like flowers.

A/C repair?

So I've got a portable A/C in the bedroom. Last night it died. I don't remember too well, but I think there might have been a loud pop or clunk, and kind of an ozone/metallic/burning electric smell? It woke me up, so I wasn't too coherent. Now it won't power on at all, no lights, no fan, nothin'.

I'm guessing the power supply blew, but I don't know much about portable A/C units so for all I know it's cancer. Or gnomes.

Has anyone gotten one of these fixed? What did it cost? Considering they cost $300 and up, I can't imagine it would be cheaper to just buy a new one. Any recommendations for where to take it? Doesn't have to be super-close to SE Portland - we have a car - but fast turnaround and open after 5 and/or on weekends are big plusses since neither of us can easily get time off work.

two questions

can anyone recommend a dermatologist in SE? Preferably one who can put you at ease / is super friendly. (doctors just tend to make me nervous / awkward / uncomfortable, even if the problem is nothing serious)

Also, where could I get my ears pierced (standard type, not plugs or anything fancy) for cheap (under $30)?  I do not want to pay too much, but I also want it to be clean & feel somewhat professional (for this reason I was thinking tattoo parlors, but they seem to be expensive), not in a mall, and preferably in SE.

Argh, so I'm getting ready to sell my car. She needs some paint work done in order to get her from "fair" to "good", and I just seem to be at a loss for reputable body shops. Can any of you recommend me someone out in the Tigard/Beaverton/Lake O/West side area that's reputable and reasonably priced?


anyone know off hand if campfires are allowed in eastern oregon right now, specifically around john day area? i googled but not finding it easy enough ;D or can a permit be acquired or something?
