Peaceful predawn sounds of nature and a crazy person by the lake here at Laurelhurst Park in Portland Oregon. You can come as early as 5 AM and watch the sunrise. I often do. I'm attaching a recording of some sounds by the lake this morning. If you listen closely, you can hear some of the sounds you hear just before the sun rises at beautiful Laurelhurst Park.
Have you read Brautigan lately?Here's a fav online free! http://www.freebookol.net/A_Confederate_General_from_Big_Sur/12.html"Sure they have stoves! Every one of them has a dozen stoves.

Hey Mike - it was wonderful to meet you and share a "Texas-sized breakfast". I cant wait to see what might come from you visit in Portland...maybe setting up shop:). Anyway, thanks for your kindness and genuine spirit!
Hi Mike, thanks for sending me that article. I realised the situation was getting pretty bad, but not to that extent. I have a BBC news app on my phone that is my main source of news at the moment, and there is a section specific to Latin America, but none of this has even had a mention. Just goes to show that even large, international news sources are following the Correa line, which is appalling.
It's hard to believe how far its escalated. I fell in love with Ecuador when I was there and its awful to see what's happening to it. Not sure what we can do to help other than trying to make more people aware?
Hi Mike! I know, our Galapagos trip really was wonderful wasn't it? It's such a shame what's happening there at the moment, to think that the next generation might not get to see what we did. What horrifies me the most is how little the world seems to care, it's been a week and still not even a mention in any of the news here.
Hopefully we can get some support behind the Galapagenos!
Thanks for sharing this page with me, it looks like an interesting space, but it might take me a while to figure out how to use it properly! :P
Several years ago a gathering of international stone masons met in Barre Vt for a weeklong symposium. I'm standing under an arch built by a novice so I couldn't wait for the race which started under the arch to begin.
Building walls without mortar is my new passion. The long standing passion that brought me to this site is bicycling. Are there any cycle savvy members here?
Hey brother! I joined this crazy site just to try to tell you about Nahko's tuning for "Black as the Night"....it is OPEN D DADF#AD and then just strum the drone open, and use an E shape for the other main chord. Watch his hands in the vid once you tune to Open D and you'll grasp it real quick. Let me know if you have questions! I BELIEVE IN THE GOOD THINGS COMIN'....
"The noticeably bitter taste of turnip greens has been linked by researchers to its calcium content. On an ounce-for-ounce basis, turnip greens contain about 4 times more calcium than a much less bitter-tasting cruciferous vegetables like cabbage."
Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
