Puff, Puff, I Give!

It's been one year to the date since I quit smoking! I'm somewhat amazed and happy to report that I haven't had one cigarette since and I firmly believe that it will stay that way. Here's to a New Year's resolution that actually stuck! : )

Happy Holidays from Portland, Oregon!!


While digging for a photo to post, I ran across this killer website, rootsweb.com, that has tons of well organized historical information about Portland and Multnomah County. The pictures section has photos of old buildings, schools, bridges, etc., plus old postcards!

Apparently there's one for every state and county! Here's Fulton County, Georgia.

They're heeeeere....!

After two months of waiting, anticipating, my Radiohead In Rainbows box sets arrived on my doorstep. Hooray! I delicately unpackaged them and inspected them for damage, none! These were shipped from the UK to the US via their respective postal servies, so I was a bit worried, whew! So why two? I decided to make an investment in a second box set, seeing that they only planned to produce as many copies as were ordered, then cease production, making them instantly out-of-print. Hopefully ten years from now it'll sell for enough to pay for them both, and maybe a plane ticket to somewhere warm, yarr!
